Ароматерапия  — разновидность альтернативной медицины, в которой используется воздействие на организм летучих ароматических веществ, получаемых преимущественно из растений. Еще за 2000 лет до нашей эры были известны лечебные свойства эфирных масел. Многие масла обладают антисептическим, противовоспалительным, обезболивающим и даже противовирусным эффектом. Их широко применяют в медицине, психологии, косметологии, парфюмерии, быту.  Несмотря на натуральность эфирных масел, необходимо помнить, что они не на 100% безопасны, поэтому использовать их надо с осторожностью. C точки зрения современной классической медицины принципы воздействия эфирных масел на организм человека до сих пор остается загадкой.

Aromatherapy is the use of natural essential oils from concentrated extracts of trees, herbs and flowers for treatment,   healing and prevention of disease.  Traditionally, aromatherapy has been used to treat a wide range of conditions including stress, anxiety, headaches, asthma, and even cancer. Specific uses include also pain- and anxiety-reduction, enhancement of energy and short-term memory, relaxation, hair loss prevention, and reduction of eczema-induced itching.  As we live in the stressful 21st century, aromatherapy has become a very popular form of relaxation.

Even though some forms of aromatherapy have been in use for many hundreds of years, there has been little scientific evidence that it actually works. Aromatherapy can be used in a variety of different ways with concentrated plant oils being massaged into the skin, inhaled, or added to bath water. In theory, the smells trigger the limbic system in the brain which is supposed to produce a range of therapeutic effects, from relaxation to pain management.

Although some research has shown positive results, scientific evidence is inconclusive as to how effective alternative aromatherapy medicine is and how much may just be a placebo effect. However, more and more doctors are becoming open to the idea of using alternative therapies in conjunction with medical treatments, and are starting to successfully incorporate both traditional and nontraditional methods into their practices.

Essential oils are not tested or recommended by the likes of the FDA and they are still mostly all natural. However, being all natural does not mean that it is completely safe and it certainly does not make any sort of claim about whether or not the product will work at all for what you are using it for.
