Aromatherapy Recipes : Aromatherapy refers the use of complex chemicals in the oils of the plants and herbs which are proved to be relaxing the mind and the body. While breathing in the aroma of the essential oils people experience feeling of vigor and balance within the perfume and fragrance.
Lavender oil is the most preferred oil used in the aromatherapy recipes because of its ability to minimize the stress, anxiety and depressions, helping to curb the irritations and uncontrolled emotions and bring forth the feeling of serenity and balance in the life of an individual. The lavender oil constitutes 70 % of linalyl and linalol acetate, a sweet delicate flower smell, and 4% of terpenol, camphor and the cineol which produces the intense and the dominant aroma.
