Aromatherapy is one of the most popular forms of complementary therapy. One of the reasons it has been so successful is due to its holistic approach. When making a plan, the aromatherapist will consider an individual’s medical history. General mental health, well-being and emotional condition are also taken on board before starting.
Essential oils are used with the hope of treating and preventing disease or illness, as well as enhancing the body and mind. For example, if ignored, stress can
worsen. This can increase the risk of suffering headaches and anxiety later on. An aromatherapist will target the cause of the stress. They will create a personal plan and a concoction of essential oils for the individual. Instead of targeting the headache, the oils would work to improve the person’s ability to cope with stress
