Aromatherapy has been used for thousands of years throughout many cultures. It has been widely believed, studied and concluded, that natural essential oils can help with the treatment of many ailments such as congestion, muscle pain, joint pain, anxiety, depression, eczema, psoriasis, sleep problems, fatigue, nausea, and inflammation. Used in conjunction with mindfulness meditation and yoga, aromatherapy can help to open the lungs for easier breathing, ease muscle soreness, and calm the mind. Essential oils can be used as topical agents or burned in a diffuser or wax candle.
Pure organic essential oils should not be ingested as it is too strong for the organs to digest properly. Used a skin agent, it is important to perform an allergy test before using it. It is recommended to use essential oils within other natural agents to dilute the oil such as soaps, body creams, and soy wax.
