Aromatherapy is based on the beneficial effects of essential plant oils, which are used as a main component of Phytotherapy and as a part of complementary medicine. The oils, which are made using steam distillation techniques, are from seeds, leaves, flowers, fruits, twigs and roots and can positively influence the mind with the smell. Aromatherapies, in particular aromatherapy massages, are an important component of Ayurveda treatments.
