Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a fascinating alternative medicine that involves the use of volatile plant materials, also known as essential oils. It is often used to improve mood, change cognitive states, and can also be utilized as a supplemental medicine.

Aromatherapy has been around in some form for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until the 11th century when steam distillation first made it possible to properly remove the essential oils from plant materials. Since then, cultures around the world have utilized aromatherapy for a wide range of functions.
