The use of essential oils in the treatment makes it a unique way of curing physical as well as mental ailments, like, stress, depression, anxiety, etc. It is essential to know that aromatherapy is a generic term applied commonly to traditions that use essential oils, either alone or in combination with alternative medical practices. The therapy is also associated with spiritual beliefs. Not all medical treatment methods involving the use of such scents are included in the term 'aromatherapy'.
Aromatherapy can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians who extracted oils and essences from plants and used them for trade. Today oils are used not only for their physical effects but are also linked with other therapies to facilitate holistic health. These gifts cover a range of ideas for those who like to use oils for their own health as well as the practitioner – something for everyone at every level.
