How Does Holistic Aromatherapy Help?
Holistic aromatherapy helps by using essential oils to support the body, mind and spirit. Essential oils can help your immune system fight viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites and other microbes. Many essential oils used in treating infections possess antimicrobial properties and work directly against invading microorganisms. There are also essential oils that stimulate the immune system which can boost the body’s own defenses.
