Aromatherapy derived its name from aroma that means scent and therapy which means treatment.

The essential oils being used during aromatherapy are volatile plant materials and also other organic compounds. They can be extracted from flowers, stems, leaves and other parts of plants. The most common products of aromatherapy are oils, candles and soaps. Some of these oils have anti-microbial effect, however, there is not much evidence that aromatherapy can actually treat medical conditions due to the lack of in-depth studies. There is however, evidence that these oils have therapeutic potential.
