Aromatherapy is a unique branch of herbal medicine that utilizes the medicinal properties found in the essential oils of various plants. Through a process of steam distillation or cold pressing, the volatile constituents of the plant`s oil are extracted from its flowers, leaves, branches or roots. Aromatherapy is noninvasive and experiential in nature. Many find this pathway to health both fun and pleasurable. Aroma Therapists may integrate other therapies such as Massage in their treatments.
