Aromatherapy is an alternative medicine application involving the use of volatile liquid plant material. The extracted essential oils from plants are used as mood and health enhancers, and pain relievers. The chemical compositions of aromatherapy essential oils differ from herbal products, due to the distillation process, which extracts only the lighter phyto-molecules in the base material. Essential oils are potent with sesquiterpenes, esters, monoterpenes, hydrocarbons, and organic sulfides.
