Aromatherapy and Essential Oil Types
Aromatherapy can be called the use of essential oils of plants for emotional, spiritual and physical health.
How Are Essential Oils Obtained?
Essential oils, also known as essential oils, are oils obtained by steam distillation from parts of plants such as flowers, leaves, roots and seeds.
Essential and Fixed Oils:
There are two types of oils used in aromatherapy.
Fixed oil types; oil types such as almond oil, sesame oil, walnut oil.
