Aromatherapy and methods of applying essential oils

Aromatherapy involves the use of high-quality essential oils entering the body via the airway or skin. When the first route is used, essential oils are inhaled; room aromatisation is less common. In direct aromatherapy, essential oils, diluted in water or a fatty carrier, are applied directly to the skin. Numerous aromatherapeutic methods and preparations are available, providing a wide range of application options. Aromatherapeutic procedures or their elements can be used for therapeutic, cosmetic or marketing purposes. A suitable choice of high-quality essential oils and safety of their use are pivotal to successful aromatherapy.
