While maintaining a healthy lifestyle is most essential for good skin, aromatherapy can contribute equally in skin care, and helps in gaining soft and supple skin. This happens as the natural oils get absorbed by the skin and eventually enters the bloodstream, thereby rendering a long lasting effect.
