I have read about it a lot and it interests me also,making use of different aromas for different ailments. But in India its not so popular, I haven' heard anybody being treated by this method. How popular is it in your country?

I have to be careful with aroma therapy because a lot of smells give me sinus headaches. Lavader is one big one that is suppose to calm people down, not me it gives me a violent headache and so does a lot of other flowery or sweet smells.

Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses volatile liquid plant materials, known as essential oils (EOs), and other scented compounds from plants for the purpose of affecting a person's mood or health. Aromatherapy is a generic term that refers to any of the various traditions that make use of essential oils sometimes in combination with other alternative medical practices and spiritual beliefs. It has a particularly Western currency and persuasion. Medical treatment involving aromatic scents may exist outside of the West, but may or may not be included in the term 'aromatherapy'.
