Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses volatile plant materials, known as essential oils, and other aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering a person's mind, mood, cognitive function or health. These essential oils may be administered through massage, bathing or inhalation. The principles of aromatherapy date back thousands of years and can be traced to the ancient cultures of Rome, Egypt, Greece and China.
The Governing Body for the UK aromatherapy profession is the Aromatherapy Council.
