Why Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy strives to treat the “whole” person. Using a diffuser to diffuse and inhale the pleasant aromas of essential oils effects the limbic system. The limbic system is responsible for emotions, the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress, and hormone balance. Apart from providing a pleasant smell, aromatherapy oils can provide respiratory disinfection, decongestant, and psychological benefits. (Medical News Today)

Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy. It does not provide a cure for diseases, rashes or illnesses, but it can support conventional treatment of various conditions.
