Benefits Of Pure Essential Oils When Used In Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy, or essential oils therapy, is using a plant's aroma-producing oils (essential oils) to treat disease.
Essential oils are taken from a plant's flowers, leaves, stalks, bark, rind, or roots. The oils are mixed with another substance (such as oil, alcohol, or lotion) and then put on the skin, sprayed in the air, or inhaled. You can also massage the oils into the skin or pour them into bath water.
The oils are thought to interact with the body's hormones and enzymes to cause changes in blood pressure, pulse, and other body functions. Another theory suggests that the fragrance of certain oils may stimulate the body to produce pain-fighting substances.

Healing burns and wounds
