Aromatherapy is the use of natural oils extracted from bark, flowers, leaves, roots, stems or other parts of plant to enhance a persons well-being either physically or mentally.

The essential oils that are created from the extraction are widely believed to stimulate brain function if inhaled.  Essential oils are easily absorbed through the skin, where they can travel to the bloodstream to promote whole-body healing.

As a form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum.  It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.

We have a wide number of essential oils available on homeherbs.co.uk, each with its own attributes and healing properties.  So have a look through and see if any will be of any use for your needs.
