Basically, aromatherapy is the controlled use of essential oils to promote mental, physical and physiological balance as well as to support healing of the mind, body, and spirit. According to AFNOR, a French organization, essential oil itself means a volatile derivative obtained from botanical raw material by either steam distillation, cold press or by dry distillation. The term essential was applied to these oils because they contain the essence, or fragrant part of the plant. In aromatherapy, essential oils are used by inhalation, topical application or oral administration.
An essential oil consists of some biochemical components. Each component possesses specific characteristics and properties directly relating to its molecular structure. These biochemical components are the one that works synergistic and provide the healing actions to our body.
