Can essential oils treat serious illness?
There is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that essential oils can help serious illness. If you have a serious illness, and have tried conventional treatments with no success, then what is there to lose? However, ALWAYS seek medical advice from a doctor first. Aromatherapy is no substitute for modern medicine, no matter how much you would like to believe in the healing powers of flowers and plants. In the past, aromatherapy was used because the scientific understanding and vast array of man-made drugs were just not available. The treatments proved moderately effective in treating everyday ailments and infections,. Use aromatherapy but understand its limitations.
