Aromatherapy is a combination of two Latin words; 'Aroma' meaning fragrance and 'therapy' meaning treatment. Aromatherapy is a new approach of treatment through the use of fragrances of essential oils. The essential oils and their fragrance have calming effect on the body and mind.

Babies of six weeks can recognize the scent of their mothers. The physical connection formed through a hug, smile or a kiss on cheeks from their parents can be nurturing for kids. Gentle massage on their feet, hands, back, abdomen and legs with essential oil has therapeutic qualities.

Different essential oils have a different impact on our bodies. Before beginning aromatherapy massage, ask your general physician about the effects of the essential oils you intend to use. An even better option is to ask an aromatherapy expert. You may also do some basic research on the internet before using essential oils.
