What Is Aromatherapy? All You Need to Know

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
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Dry mouth
