All About Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy helps heal patients by using essential oils from plants. Essential oils can be put into a diffuser to be inhaled through the air. They can also be put with a carrier oil and massaged into the skin and hair. Benefits of Aromatherapy will vary based on the essential oils used. Using one essential oil will have targeted benefits, but you can also mix essential oils to target a variety of symptoms.

Affirm Health Center uses a diffuser during every esthetic service. An essential oil can be added to massage oil for additional benefits. There is also an option to get hand or foot scrubs that include the essential oil of your choice.
