EASY AND EFFECTIVE AROMATHERAPY RECIPES FOR DEPRESSION

WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a sort of treatment that falls under the category of alternative medicine, as its name suggests. It makes use of essential oils, which are plant-derived chemicals.

Aromatherapy is most commonly associated with relaxing, but it can also be used to treat medical issues. Essential oils are useful in the treatment of infectious disorders because of their antibacterial characteristics.

The use of essential oils for pain relief, anxiety relief, and Alzheimer’s disease has become increasingly popular in recent years. While essential oils appear to be a safe alternative treatment option, they are extremely potent and volatile liquids that must be handled with extreme caution.

Never apply an undiluted essential oil to the skin without first diluting it with a carrier oil. While the cures listed here should help, they should not be used in place of proper medical treatment.

ABOUT ME


Hi, I'm Laura and welcome to my blog.

I've been interested in the human mind since I was a child and that's the reason why I became a psychologist. I thought I had everything figured out, but it turned out I was suffering from anxiety for at least ten years without even noticing it. With the help of what I already knew, and some of my friends/colleagues, I compiled a list of articles that helped me go through my anxiety and get to the other side of the tunnel.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to help you along the way.

Laura
