The therapeutic use of plants can be dated back as far as Ancient Egyptian civilisations and has been practised for centuries by lots of different cultures, including the Chinese, more than 2000 years ago.
Essential oils, or aromatherapy oils, are made from natural plant extracts which can be found in the flowers, roots, leaves, seeds and bark.
These oils are inhaled, which then stimulates the olfactory nerves, impacting the emotional centre of the brain.
Not only do these essential oils have a pleasant aroma, they can be used to help clear the senses. They also have multiple benefits for emotional wellbeing.
There are over 90 essential oils, each of which has a unique fragrance and different benefit.
Some of the most popular essential oils include lavender and peppermint.
