Aromatherapy is the medicinal application of the aromatic essences (essential oils) produced naturally by plants. Some plants are richer in essential oils than others. Mint is the best known - simply brushing against the plant can release the wonderfully odorous molecules. Geranium is another plant that has an abundance of essential oil. Apart from being an excellent anti-depressant, it has a fabulous scent. Geranium is also a powerful insect repellent and is often as a window box plant.

Most people think of essential oils in terms of complimentary medicine. However, 98% of the world’s production is for the food industry where there is an increasing demand for natural flavours. The Macmillan organisation recently published a far-reaching report into the impact of complimentary treatments. Aromatherapy was by far the most popular and has a good track record in symptom management, particularly in the areas of palliative care and stress related symptoms.
