Aromatherapy oil. View of an aromatherapy oil being poured into a cupped hand prior to massage. An aromatherapy oil consists of an essential oil, made from fragrant flower and herb extracts, suspended in a neutral carrier oil. These oils release their volatile plant extracts into the air as they are warmed or massaged into the skin. Aromatherapists claim that they can treat a range of disorders, particularly psychosomatic and stress-related conditions. However, aromatherapy is mainly used by people to create a sense of general well-being.
