Aromatherapy is the use of natural fragrances contained in essential oils extracted from blossoms, leaves, roots or resins for therapeutic purposes. The active substances are absorbed through the nose, the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat or through the skin. The bioactive substances can be inhaled, applied to the skin (also in wraps), massaged into the skin, used as bath additives or vaporised, e.g. in a sauna or atomised in a room. Depending on the active substance in the essential oil, aromatherapy can help the regenerative process or increase a feeling of well-being. For example, thyme activates the circulation and boosts concentration. Lemongrass activates and stimulates the mind, while lemon balm has a more calming effect.
