Q.What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.  It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological, psychological and spiritual realm of the individual’s response to aromatic extracts as well as to observe and enhance the individual’s innate healing process.  As a holistic practice, Aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active method to employ during acute and chronic stages of illness or ‘dis’-ease. Aromatherapy uses essential oils which can be extracted from flowers, seeds, barks, herbs, and roots. There are several clinical studies that have found it to be an effective complimentary therapy method.
