In Aromatherapy, the powerful aromas of essential oils are used to trigger the brain's center for emotion, memory, survival and passion. Essential oils can be applied in many ways: diffusers, vaporizers, inhalations, massage, baths, etc. For direct skin application, concentrated essential oils are diluted using a base oil (such as Aloe or Avocado Oil). Some essential oils (such as Clove oil) are also fast becoming known for their high antioxidant values!
