Aromatherapy has been used as an alternative therapy for centuries. Nowadays, it is gaining popularity in the treatment of almost all kind of ailments. Certain essential oils are used for administering an aromatherapy massage depending upon the nature of the ailment. These aromatherapy essential oils are pure extracts from various herbs and plants that are known for their medicinal values.

Essential oils in their purest form are very concentrated and should never be applied directly on the skin as they may causes rashes or burns on the skin. A few drops of essential oil are mixed with some carrier oil like jojoba oil or olive oil. This mixture is then used for therapeutic use. The extent of dilution and selection of essential oils is done by highly experienced and qualified aromatherapists depending on the part of your body that has to be treated. In case of a facial massage, the dilution is much more than in comparison to the other parts of the body.
These days, aromatherapy is used for boosting fertility as well. If you are facing difficulties in becoming pregnant, you may find aromatherapy to be a natural way of regaining fertility. Certain essential oils have been found to be effective in regulating the female reproductive system. These oils contain certain compounds that help in binding the estrogen receptors in your body. The essential oils which are usually used for boosting fertility are:
