It’s that time of year again. It’s the time when so many of us reflect on the past and make plans for the future.

This ancient practice is a way of using essential oils to achieve wellness holistically. To get started, we’re going to talk about what aromatherapy is and how it can help you set and meet your goals for the new year.

The Basics Of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses essential oils in order to achieve a state of natural wellness. Essential oils are the volatile essences obtained from plants and can be used aromatically or topically to promote overall wellness. Studies have shown aromatherapy may help with stress relief, insomnia, concentration, and even pain management to a degree.
