In brief: Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is a technique in which essential oils from plants are used with the intention of preventing or treating illness, reducing stress, or enhancing well-being.
There are many scented products like potpourri, etc, but aroma therapy uses stronger concentrates directly from the plants. Common ones include lavender for sleep & relaxation, and lemon balm to reduce agitation in dementia.
