The use of aromatherapy as a curative for that which ails you has been happening now for millennia and yet many people still believe that much - if not all of it - is sketchy medicine at best. Treatments form the foundation for traditional medicine in many Asian cultures. The ancient Chinese for example have been implementing alternative healing methods for centuries and there is even documented evidence that these traditional methods actually have curative abilities.
Scientific researchers will go to extreme lengths to look at the most obscure plant in some region of the Brazilian rain forest for a new pharmaceutical active ingredient. So why would they not take a strong look at what traditional medicine practitioners have known and passed on for hundreds of years. There is a direct correlation between certain aromatic substances and healing.
Treatments can vary in their methodology and application. For our purposes, vaporization is the method of choice for an effective use of aromatics for a healthy benefit. For many years, aromatherapy has been smoked to obtain the beneficial elements from them. Over the last twenty or thirty years it has become apparent that burning can cause more harm than the good they provide. Burning causes the release of harmful byproducts that negate any medicinal value.
The same result can now be experienced by those aromatherapy aficionados who use essential oils for their healthful benefits but may want to try a more active form of therapy.
When vaporizing your material there are some guidelines for effectiveness. The material needs to be properly milled or ground up. There are tools available to attain the proper consistency for vaporizing such as grinders. Dried ingredients produce the best aromatherapy expierience typically, although it can vary from person to person.
