Aromatology is the use of essential oils in therapeutic and cosmetological treatments.

Essential oils have been used in the healing arts since ancient times. They are natural substances extracted usually by distillation from flowers, herbs, resins and spices. Hundreds of flowers might be required to produce only a few drops of essential oil, such as Rose Otto. Each has its own influence on a part of the human body, be it skin, kidneys, blood circulation, etc. They have antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties which are highly successful in the treatment of headaches, sinusitis, menstrual disorders, arthritis, pain management, and skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis. They can also affect mood and are useful in the treatment of depression, stress, anxiety and insomnia.

Examples of topics covered: The art of mixing and blending essential oils, chemistry, the art of distillation, botanical studies, making tinctures and macerated oils, how essential oils are obtained, carrier oils, history, hydrosols, pregnancy & child care, and an in-depth study of essential oils.
