What are Aromatherapy Oils?

The term aromatherapy oil generally refers to all of the natural essential oils, CO2s, absolutes and other oils and natural liquid plant aromatics that are used within the scope of holistic aromatherapy.

The meaning behind the term aromatherapy oil, however, can differ depending on who is using the term. For instance, some people mistakenly think that synthetic fragrance oils are suitable for use in aromatherapy. Sometimes synthetic fragrance oils are mistakenly referred to as aromatherapy oils.

AromaWeb strives to avoid using the confusing term aromatherapy oils since it sometimes can mean different things to different people. When you come across the use of the term aromatherapy oil to refer to particular oils, you will need to explore and find out what specific type of oil it is.
