Question answered by Dan Roberts
Aromatherapy uses essential oils extracted from nature’s herbs and flowers. The aroma is inhaled, or applied to the skin, and each of the oils (or combination thereof) addresses a specific disorder. It appears that the body is able to utilize the healing properties of the oils through the olfactory system of the body, and so initiate the healing process. Aromatherapy practitioners would also have an understanding of the psychological and emotional factors of illness.
This website has some great information and articles about Aromatherapy.

What is the difference between edible cooking oils and the carrier oils used in aromatherapy?
I am very interested in experimenting with the carrier oils used in aromatherapy. However, where I come from (Singapore), aromatherapy is not such a big thing and thus their products are quite exorbitantly priced. I was wondering if I could substitute edible oils for the carrier oils (e.g. sunflower oil, sesame oil, olive oil etc.) Has anyone tried before?
Question answered by essence_of_wellbeing
Theroretically yes. But most cooking oils are processed to give them a longer shelf life - this is not so good for aromatherapy. That's partly why carrier oils sold for aromatherapy can seem more expensive.
If looking in the cooking oils look for oils which say they are "cold pressed" and/or "virgin" which means the first pressing. Sunflower oil is often processed, so I would be wary of that. Cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil would fit the bill, but can have a strong smell and some aromatherapists dislike it for that reason. If using sesame oil make sure it is not the toasted version often used in cooking. You might want to experiement with mixtures of different oils as they all behave differently and have different aromas.

Aromatherapy is bogus. Reflexology is ridiculous.

Elderly family member is in nursing home and I've been told lately aromatherapy is been given her. How does it work?
Thank you oldtimekid2 and veggigirl7777 for answers so far.
Question answered by oldtimekid2
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 mood, cognitive function or health. The effectiveness of aromatherapy is yet to be scientifically proven, however some evidence exists that essential oils may have therapeutic potential.
Since some essential oils such as tea tree have demonstrated anti-microbial effects, it has been suggested that they may be useful for the treatment of infectious diseases. The evidence base for the efficacy of aromatherapy used to treat medical conditions remains poor with a particular paucity of methodologically rigorous studies

Question answered by Cherokee Billie
Aromatherapy is one of the fastest growing fields in alternative medicine. It is widely used at home, clinics and hospitals for a variety of applications such as pain relief for women in labor pain, relieving pain caused by the side effects of the chemotherapy undergone by the cancer patients, and rehabilitation of cardiac patients.

What is the best method for Aromatherapy application?
I'm interested in using aromatherapy essential oils to provide scent to a room. Will any traditional oil burner do the trick?
Question answered by All Natural
A traditional candle oil burner will work fine, they have been used for years.
Though if you have a children or pets in the environment I would recommend you consider using an electric vaporizer for safety reasons.
You may find this article of interest titled "Aromatherapy Vaporisation" it explains a bit more about vaporisation and methods you can use http://aromatherapyandnaturalskincare.com.au/index.php?essential_oils=167&Aromatherapy%20Vaporisation
Hope this helps!
how and where can we purchase essential oils and aromatherapy oils?and how mch is the cost?
and what kind of aromatherapy oils do you have?
Question answered by Emma
Overall, the effects of essential oils may be divided into two basic groups. Some essential oils have actual physical effects. For example, eucalyptus oil can be inhaled to help clear sinuses and the respiratory tract. This would obviously relieve some symptoms of an upper respiratory infection (URI). Some oils may be used topically (directly on the skin, where they would usually be absorbed by the body, or on a wound) to possibly relieve swelling or fight certain infections.

What are the different types of diffusers in aromatherapy?
im new to aromatherapy and want to purchase new equipment
what i want to know is what are the different types of diffusers?
you know like lamps, electric diffusers etc
Question answered by Kimberly Rex, Repatterning Practitioner
1) Nebulizing Diffusers work basically the same way a perfume atomizer works. A jet of air blowing across a small tube creates a vacuum that pulls a liquid at the bottom of the tube to the top of the tube. The air flow blowing across the surface of the oil at the top of the tube blows the oil away in a fine spray or mist. With a constant air supply source, this type of diffusion can quickly put a large amount of oil into the air.Because this type of diffusion works to put the whole oil into the air in the form of tiny droplets, it is often considered the best type of diffusion for the therapeutic use of essential oils.
2) Ultrasonic or Humidifying Diffusers also create a fine mist, but the method by which this is accomplished is much different. An ultrasonic diffuser utilizes electronic frequencies to cause a small disk under the surface of a liquid (usually water) to vibrate at a very fast rate. These ultrasonic vibrations break the essential oil into tiny microparticles, dispersing the oil in a fine mist. These tiny particles are more easily absorbed by the lungs for a greater therapeutic effect on the body, mind, and spirit.
3) Evaporative Diffusers are pretty basic in how they operate. A fan blows air from the room through some sort of pad or filter that has essential oils dropped onto it. The air blowing through the pad causes the oils to evaporate more quickly than normal, and the air with the evaporated oil is blown into the room.Some Evaporative Diffusers are battery operated, fan operated, terracota, air fresheners,wooden and oil wear pendants, or personal Inhalers.
4) Heat Diffusers also cause the essential oils to evaporate quicker than normal but use heat instead of blowing air to accomplish diffusion.While some heat diffusers use high levels of heat to produce stronger smells, the best heat diffusers will only use very low levels of heat that produce more subtle aromas. This difference is important because high levels of heat can actually alter the chemical constituents of the oils.
5) Here are two pages that offer actual products and compare diffusers:
6) You might also wish to check out resource books on essential oils and aromatherapy on Amazon:
(The Complete Book of Essential OIls and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood is excellent!)
