Does Aromatherapy help against cancer?
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to improve mood and health. Diffusers are most used to spread a combination of steam and a few drops of the essential oil throughout the room. For skin application, essential oils are usually mixed with vegetable oil and massaged directly into the skin. Although there are over 40 different essential oils, the most commonly used are lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, jasmine, chamomile, peppermint, and geranium. Aromatherapy can be used to improve your quality of life by reducing stress, pain, and depression and by producing a feeling of well-being. Lavender oil is promoted to reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia, and muscle tension. Inhaled peppermint and ginger oil may help to decrease nausea that is caused by chemotherapy. At ICRM, we have aromatherapists can teach you how you can administer it to yourself. Never swallow essential oils as they can cause death or illness and be careful to apply it every day. It is important that you know that aromatherapy does not prevent or treat cancer. Remember that the body achieves what the mind believes.
