What Is Aromatherapy Used For?
Aromatherapy can be beneficial for overall wellness. When you inhale the oils, molecules travel from your nose and impact the brain’s emotional center. A massage therapist can also use essential oils on your skin to relax tight muscles. Many skin care products now add lavender and wintergreen to bath salts for a soothing effect.
Furthermore, lab results are promising. According to John Hopkins University, essential oils can kill certain bacteria better than over-the-counter antibiotics.
Many clinical trials are underway to establish whether such oils can alleviate common health issues like:
- Appetite loss
- Dry mouth
