Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for healing. Although the word “aroma” makes it sound as if the oils are inhaled, they can also be massaged into the skin or taken by mouth. Essential oils are recommented to used internally only under instructions of a skilled specialist. Whether it is inhaled or applied on the skin, essential oils are gaining new attention as an alternative treatment for infections, stress, and other health problems.*
An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing natural aromatic compounds found in the plant life, for example seeds, bark, stems, roots and flowers. Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their benefits in the terms of wellness and holistic health. Each oil contains its own mix of active ingredients, and this mix determines purpose of the oil. Some oils are used to promote physical healing such as to treat swelling or fungal infections. Others are used for their emotional value — they may enhance relaxation or make a room smell pleasant. Orange blossom oil, for example, contains a large amount of calming ingredient.

Essential oils have been used for therapeutic purposes for nearly 6,000 years. The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used them in cosmetics, perfumes, and drugs. Essential oils were also commonly used for spiritual, therapeutic, hygienic, and ritualistic purposes.
Science of aromatherapy started in early 20th century when French chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé discovered the healing properties of lavender oil and analyzed the chemical properties of essential oils while they were used to treat burns, skin infections, gangrene, and wounds in soldiers during World War I. By the 1950s massage therapists, beauticians, nurses, physiotherapists, doctors, and other health care providers all over the World began using aromatherapy. It gained more popularity during the 1980th and today many lotions, candles, and beauty products are sold as “aromatherapy.” However, those products should be used with caution, because many them contain synthetic fragrances that do not have the same properties as essential oils.*
Essential oils offer a safe, natural, effective remedy for common health and wellness issues ranging from allergies and headaches to sleeplessness and digestion.
Many have powerful cleansing properties and are naturally antimicrobial, while others may be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well-being (look “why dōTERRA?“).**
Essential oils can be helpful for individual health and wellness via one of three methods:
aromatically by breathing in or using a diffuser
topically on the skin, either by itself or with a carrier to dilute the oil
internally by using dietary supplements
