The art of aromatherapy involves the use of essential oils, in order to help improve both the physical and emotional well-being of a client, by treating the whole person.
The basis of aromatherapy is the use of essential oils, and their ability to be absorbed into the blood stream through the skin or respiratory system. These oils initiate chemical changes through their reactions with hormones and enzymes, affecting both body and mind.
