"Aromatherapy and Flower Essences are two separate and very
different approaches to healing that utilize plants to effect
changes and thereby heal our bodies. Aromatherapy utilizes
volatile liquid plant materials, including essential oils and
other aromatic compounds of plants, to relax our bodies or
stimulate its function, especially our senses.
Essential oils are very aromatic, but that is an added side
benefit- their healing actions are quite physiological. For
example, they can stimulate the limbic system and emotional
centers of the brain, activate thermal receptors on the skin, act
as natural antibiotics and fungicides, and possibly enhance the
immune response in other ways not fully understood."
