Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes essential oils from plants to promote physical and mental well-being. The oils are typically inhaled, applied topically, or used in a diffuser to release their fragrance, which is believed to have therapeutic properties. Aromatherapy is used to treat a variety of conditions, including stress, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, and pain. It is based on the principle that scent molecules have an impact on the limbic system, the part of the brain responsible for emotions and memories, and can stimulate the body's natural healing processes. While aromatherapy is not a substitute for conventional medical treatment, it can be used in conjunction with other therapies to enhance their effectiveness and promote overall health and wellness.
