What is the role of Aromatherapy in Integrative Oncology?

According to the US Government National Cancer Institute:

Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils (also known as volatile oils) from plants (flowers, herbs, or trees) for the improvement of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

 Aromatherapy practice supports the body’s healing processes related to cancer treatment side effects in areas such as:

  • digestion

  • stress

  • heightened emotions

  • energy

  • detoxification

  • sleep

  • cognitive function (begin to clear away the “fog”)
