Take a moment to check out the Better Living Show website, where we have a great aromatherapy article,
"Aromatherapy at Home," featured on the Show's blog. Here is a sneak peek of the article, which includes information about aromatherapy, including tips for how to use essential oils in your home to create a clean environment and to create sanctuary:

You may have seen the term “aromatherapy” on product labels, or even as part of spa services or in advertising. But perhaps you’re wondering, “What does aromatherapy really mean?” Translated literally, aromatherapy is the use of aromas for their healing properties. It is “the controlled use of essential oils to promote the health and vitality of the body, mind and spirit,” as Shirley Price, a noted clinical aromatherapist, further explains in her book Aromatherapy for Health Professionals.

So what does essential mean? Essential oils are the distilled or expressed product of volatile components synthesized by various plant tissues of a single plant species (the healing components). Simply, essential means that these distilled or expressed oils contain the essence or the fragrant part of the plant."
