Pop Around Town : Aromatherapy

【明報專訊】Very few of us would resist a session of essential oil (香精油) massage to help relax our muscles, energise our senses and soothe our spirits. Aromatherapy (香薰療法) is the healing practice of using natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. Essential oils should not be confused with perfumes or other fragrance oils. Essential oils are natural, whereas fragrance oils are chemically produced to mimic certain aromatic scents for perfumes, colognes, candles, etc.
