Aromatherapy is such an interesting subject. It involves the use of essential oils that all have unique chemical compositions and properties that can be beneficial to us.
Essential oils are taken from different parts of numerous plants, grown all around the world. Some of the chemical constituents are used in well-known drugs, including Aspirin and commonly used cancer-fighting drugs.
Essential oils contain minute molecules that can enter the bloodstream, in the same way that drug patches work on the body. Different oil components aid relaxation, reduce muscle tension and reduce feelings of stress. Some others are stimulating and can aid concentration, increase energy and a positive mood.
