English models of aromatherapy use advocates diluting a small amount of essential oil in a vegetable oil
and massaging the body for the purpose of relaxation and relieving stress.
French model of essential oils use prescribes the ingestion and neat (undiluted) topical application of therapeutic-grade
German model focuses on inhalation of essential oils.

versatile and powerful essential oils can be, as some aromatherapist will verify.
