Aromatherapy /əˌrōməˈTHerəpē/ (n): The practice of using natural, essential oils extracted from flowers, bark, leaves, or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aromas from these oils can be absorbed through the skin to stimulate brain function and promote whole-body healing.
The fragrances of essential oils fall under four categories:
Anti-Erogenous fragrances are known to be clean, fresh and fruity scents.
Stimulating fragrances are generally spicy and sharp, increasing sensitivity and arousal.
Erogenous fragrances mimic and enhance natural body related odors to appeal to the senses.
Narcotic fragrances enhance the power of attraction and elicit a sense of euphoria.
