Cancer patients can benefit from aromatherapy use by reducing anxiety levels and by relieving emotional stress, pain, muscular tension, and fatigue.
Aromatherapy uses highly concentrated essential oils extracted from plant substances - from bark, leaves, petals, resins, roots, seeds, stalks or stems of certain aromatic plants, herbs, or trees.
There are various forms of application. Most commonly, oils are applied topically in diluted forms, often together with a carrier oil as part of massage therapy to manipulate the soft tissue of the body, or by use in the form of a lotion.
Using an incense burner or an aromatherapy diffuser for inhalation of the aroma triggers the brain to respond physically and emotionally. Essential oils may be inhaled by adding a few drops to steaming water. Using an atomizer or humidifier will spread the aroma throughout the room.
