Is all aromatherapy effective?


Question from Revcate: Is everything labeled "aromatherapy" as effective as another?
Answers - Dan Benor Aromatherapy is an enormous field where they are just beginning to do research. In Volume 2 of my book on Healing Research, I summarize very briefly those symptoms which have been found to respond to particular oils. We're really in the early days of exploring those. Aromatherapy is administered in several different ways. The most common is through an inhaler system where they evaporate the oil with a little burner under a cup that's holding water with a few drops of oil. The second is where it's used topically, in massage oil. It serves to smooth the massage at the same time that the aroma is administered through the oil.

On Wednesday, October 20, 2004, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Complementary and Holistic TechniquesDan Benor, M.D.,Larry Lachman, Psy.D., and moderator Jennifer Griggs, M.D., M.P.H. answered your questions about the various complementary and holistic treatments that may benefit those with breast cancer.
