Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function.

Aromatherapy may promote relaxation and help relieve stress. It has also been used to help treat a wide range of physical and mental conditions, including burns, infections, depression, insomnia, and high blood pressure.

Only the purest natural oils will afford the benefits of inhalation or topical use, which is another therapeutic option. Allergy sufferers and medicated folks need to clear this approach through a physician.

Several clinical studies suggest that when essential oils (particularly rose, lavender, and frankincense) were used by qualified midwives, pregnant women felt less anxiety and fear, had a stronger sense of well being, and had less need for pain medications during delivery. Many women also report that peppermint oil relieves nausea and vomiting during labor.

My hairdresser swears that aromatherapy calms the mind of her 9 yrs. old grandson who suffers from mild autism.  Every so often she infuses a plastic bracelet with a specific, mixed scent which her grandson wears to school and he is able to draw the scent in when his anxiety level increases.  His teacher has since incorporated an aromatherapy diffuser in her classroom so all the children will be more relaxed which has significantly improved her classes' attention span and moods.
