Alongside what are commonly seen as more “traditional” forms of therapy, alternative methods have also been proven to be effective. In fact, these methods are very much traditional in their own right, with practices that have been developed over thousands of years; we’re just not quite as used to them in some modern contexts.
Aromatherapy is one of these alternative methods, and it can be a very effective way of attaining, and maintaining, overall well-being.
