How Does Aromatherapy Work?

Aromatherapy Gift Set from Candle BayAromatherapy Gift Set from Candle Bay

Sometimes my friends ask me: "How does aromatherapy work?"

I tell them that aromatherapy scents are a combination of art and science that can improve health and mood through the use of essential oils.

During your aromatherapy sessions, which you could have with an aromatherapy specialist or in the comfort of your home, you either inhale the vapours of essential oils of your skin absorbs them through contact with your pores.

Aromatherapy via Skin Contact

Skin contact could be through massages or aromatherapy baths. When the essential oils are inhaled, they trigger changes in your brain, which then stimulate physiological responses in your body. These stimulations could happen through the nervous, endocrine or immune system.

To maximize the benefits of aromatherapy, it is best to administer the essential oils via aromatherapy baths or massages because you can then absorb the oils via both your skin and inhalation and these two activities provide additional relaxation benefits.
