Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils, which are obtained from flowers, leaves, roots, wood, and resins. There are several ways to use essential oils such as inhalation, vaporisation, baths, compresses and the way most people know and expect massage. The essential oils work on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, each oil may have several uses and when combined they enhance each other, in other words, they work synergistically.

Aromatherapy is particularly effective for insomnia, stress, anxiety, depression, muscular aches, and pains but is also helpful in a wide range of conditions, both mental and physical. This is the same for both people and Horses.
Regular use of aromatherapy boosts the immune system and acts as a preventative helping to maintain positive health.
