What is Aromatherapy 何謂芳香療法?


Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants, herbs, seeds, resins, flowers, etc to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.



Aromatherapy是由二個字組成 - aroma 的意思為"芳香";therapy的意思為"治療"。芳香療法乃利用各種不同植物的花、枝葉、種子、樹脂及水果等萃取而得的高濃度精油所產生的香氣,來舒緩、純淨身心的一種自然療法 。

芳療的歷史也有五千年之久,可追朔國家有埃及、中國、印度、希臘等並且廣泛使用在藥物治療、美容產品、按摩和精神上或一些宗教儀式 。




It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological, psychological and spiritual realm of the individual's response to aromatic extracts as well as to observe and enhance the individual's innate healing process.





As a holistic practice, and complementary to the natural healing principles of acupuncture, homeopathy and herbal medicine, aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active method to employ during acute and chronic stages of illness, disease or health problems.



芳香療法能帶來愉悅的心情,心裡安祥,平衡緊張舒緩病痛 ,如果調製成按摩油按摩身體或泡個精油浴在身心上會有不錯的效果 。


It is a natural, non-invasive modality designed to affect the whole person not just the symptom or disease and to assist the body's natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself by the correct use of essential oils.
