Aromatherapy has been around and has been practised in one form or another since the beginning of civilisation. It is the art, and science, of using oils extracted from aromatic plants, flowers; herbs; spices; woods and fibres, usually by distillation, expression and solvent extraction to enhance health and beauty. Apart from the physical benefits, essential oils can have subtle effects on the mind and emotions. Essential oils are not absorbed through the skin. There is no scientific evidence that oils are absorbed through the skin and then into the bloodstream. Dermatologists who have done similar experiments also show that oils do not go through the skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is designed to keep out contaminants not let them in.
