Aromatherapy has become quite a common term associated with the physiological effects of pure essential oils when added to various mediums and applied to the body.

The application of such mediums such as massage oils, spa products and skin care products are used by therapists either in private practice or by those who practice at complementary health clinics and at spas.

There is an enormous amount of literature available in hard-copy print and via electronic sources that make reference to empirical and scientific research pertaining to the physiological effects of pure essential oils.  However, please be advised that there are also many anecdotal references made about the therapeutic effects of essential oils.

Aromachology or Aromatology are more recent terms that are now being used by therapists and companies who use pure essential oils in their products and such therapists and companies may attach therapeutic claims to their products.  If such therapeutic claims are being made then strict licensing guidelines must be in place.

Essential oils are pure aromatic extracts obtained from various portions of plants such as the; root, stem, bark, seed, flower and leaf.  Essential Oils should never be applied to the skin in their pure form (often referred to as Neat).

Essential oils should never be consumed by mouth or taken internally.  Pregnant and or nursing mothers should only use very mild essential oils and in very diluted proportions after their third (3rd) trimester and when in doubt should consult their physician and a professional aromatherapist.

When essential oils are used inappropriately they may interact with medications or may trigger unwanted physiological affects therefore it is imperative to seek professional guidance with respect to using essential oils.

The terms Aromachology or Aromatology also relate to the study of odours on human behaviour from a psychological perspective. Aromatic extracts and botanical extracts such as essential oils, and synthetic fragrances appeal to different people. When a scent is detected by the olfactory system that is appealing, it elicits a positive response such as relaxation, exhilaration, happiness, and well-being.
