Aromatherapy is helpful like how playing with your dog or cat is helpful. But I don't think people should use it to treat anything more severe than some stress.

Interestingly, acupuncture is helpful for some problems, but it doesn't seem to be very well understood scientifically, so I must agree that it's usually best to see a doctor. If you have a broken bone or something, no amount of scented oil will help you.


Most evidence to supports that the effect of relaxation arometherapy has on you is a placebo affect and nothing actually in the scents relaxes you. Sure can smelling nice things relax but that shouldn't be elevated to a form of therapy or treatment no more than listening to music should be elevated to therapy.

I dont want to sound rude but I trust psychiatrists and psychologists to handle situations better than a random gook with some oils. To me its a lesser form of the "I dont need vaccinations" argument. Ive had shitty medication in my life I took Adderall that made me stay up all night and contributed to me feeling like shit. But there is no evidence to support claims of Aromatherapy being effective.

Sure some people cant go to the doctor with there problems. Thats why we should get universal healthcare. But self medicating is not a good solution to solve this problem especially when there is no evidence to support this method of self medication being effective.


Well, that's about racist as fuck.



Woah son Ive seen /s4s/ ironic troll threads that had more convincing bait. 0/10 worst new bait.


Self medicating is awesome.

I agree on this, but if it helps someone then it helps someone.
To me it relaxes me, it's not a cure all and I didn't say it was
however, it helps me a lot.

Almost every aromatherapy site on the web says
"this should not take the place of a regular doctor"

And to the other posts above,
this wasn't meant to be hostile.
It's a simple discussion.

It's okay,
There's no point in getting upset though,
dears.

If he wants to troll, leave it up to the mods.

:)

I don't care either way, it's his opinion.

Fine if you dislike my opinion on Billy Idols cover of Heroin ill take it down.

Maybe you shouldn't make racial slurs
and act like one then?

If you came here just to make trouble
then maybe you should go somewhere
else.

I've already reported you twice.

So yes.

...When did I use a racial slur?

Edit: I have just found out know that g*** is a racial slur. I would like to sincerely apologize for using that word. Im ashamed of myself for saying it and it was entirely stupid of me to say it and not be aware of the language I was using.

The problem is that people don't enjoy all the same scents, just as how they don't enjoy all the same hobbies or the same foods. De-stressing is important and anything can be a therapy as long as it has the intended effect on the targeted problem. Even a placebo effect that actually does something can be a valuable tool for de-stressing. Nothing found in sounds relax you, either, yet listening to music is a well-documented and ancient method for reducing stress. And it works. I suppose the oils or the sounds don't do anything on their own, but different minds react differently to varying stimuli. It's nothing more than the brain itself doing something to the body.

But, yeah, people should not use this to treat more serious problems.
