Aromatherapy is the science and art of therapuetically blending essential oils for health and well-being. The earth provides plants that contain very powerful chemical properties within their leaves, blossoms, fruits, roots, branches, and resins. For thousands of years, all living creatures have used these plant materials for health purposes. Today, many families have learned how to replace many of the products around their homes with natural essential oils.
The essential oil industry is not regulated by the FDA and therefore claims cannot be made in regards to using oils for treating disease. You will notice the language that surrounds essential oil products is carefully worded to comply with these standards. Because of this loose regulation, it is also important that you purchase essential oils that are organic or wildcrafted from a qualified aromatherapist.
