It makes your environment pleasant. Then there is direct inhalation. People suffering from insomnia use the essential oils in their bath and massage, inhaling the scents so as to ensure natural sleep.

Smoking is a difficult habit to break. This is because of receptors in the human body which are activated by the nicotine. These receptors, when over activated, need more nicotine as time goes on. Due to this internal urge, you feel like smoking more. It is a bad cycle which is hard to break and you can find it almost impossible to stop smoking.
But if you really want to get rid of this harmful habit, you can use aromatherapy. How? The aroma of the different essential oils extracted from natural herbs help in the rehabilitation process by making your brain relax and soothing your nerves. You will feel less anxious and restless in situations where you do not have a cigarette.
As you relax, you need some energy to overcome the tension. There is a special limbic system in our body which regulates the feelings of thirst and hunger. The sensory organs in our brain are activated by the scent of essential oils and make you feel hungry. If you are not eating properly and are too thin due to lack of appetite, you can treat yourself by using aromatherapy.

You can add 1-2 drops of essential oil in a steamer and inhale the steam. The vapors will soothe your body and you will soon get rid of your cold, flu, allergies and other illness.
