Some ailments and illnesses require allopathic treatments toward a cure.  Some can be easily treated, relieved, even cured by more natural or alternative remedies and applications.  Aromatherapy can provide relief from stress, sleep deprivation, dry skin, issues related to pregnancy, and forms of depression.

So, what is aromatherapy? It is basically a treatment with the help of essential plant oils (such as tea tree oil, ylang-ylang, lemon balm and orange blossom) that can be inhaled, massaged onto your body, added to your bath or sprayed into your room to treat certain ailments.
