Aromatherapy may also help reduce stress, anxiety, or depression.
Different ingredients are mixed with the carrier oil depending on the ailment to be treated. They may be made into a massage liquid, a rub, vapors, or bath salts. Once mixed they can be applied directly to the afflicted area, used for a full body massage, place in an atomizer to diffuse into the air, mixed with bath water or made into a poultice.
Most ingredients can be purchased locally or they can be ordered online from possibly a single source. Ingredients should be tested on the body in a small area of the body to check for allergic reactions since some people do have a multitude of allergies. Other than a possible allergy, there are few side effects noted from using these types of herbal remedies.
