Some patients prefer complementary and alternative medicine treatments because they are under the impression that these methods are safer than conventional medication because of their “natural” origins. EOs can be used in a bath, during a massage, as a spray, a paste, a gel, or via inhalation. People think that these oils get into the skin through the upper dermis. There are different ideas about how aromatherapy could help people. The components of EOs are essential for the treatment and prevention of cancer; the processes responsible for EOs' antimutagenic capabilities are numerous. These EOs boost immunity, improve blood circulation, protect from respiratory and skin diseases, and improve digestion. These are also helpful in relieving pain in joints and muscular regions. Their importance in boosting brain functioning helps in the treatment of various neurological problems. They have a significant impact on resolving human reproductive issues. They play a significant role in modern medicine and are increasingly used to treat a wide range of illnesses. Their value as a natural remedy of last resort is universally acknowledged. Their increasing application to the treatment of human health issues has paved the path for natural aromatherapy to find widespread acceptance among the general public.
