Aromatherapy is an alternative medicine therapy used to treat disorders like skin-related problems, pain management, insomnia, cardiovascular and respiratory disorders, digestion problems, cold and cough, immune system functioning, anxiety, and wound healing. Aromatherapy uses aromatic oils and other aroma compounds for improving psychological or physical well-being. Essential oils are extracted from plants and are processed naturally to form organic products. These products are non-toxic and safe for inhalation and have the potential to be natural cleansers and an antibacterial remedy when ingested. Therapeutic grade essential oils positively impact the overall wellness of the patient. For instance, rosemary oil can cure a person suffering from both headache and cold and cough, if inhaled. In addition, it is good for skin and hair if used topically
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a clinical trial was conducted on 50 patients suffering from second- and third-degree burns in 2016, to study the effects of inhaling aromatherapy products. The result showed that aromatherapy can be used as a complementary therapy for pain relief amongst burn patients.
The global aromatherapy market was worth $XX million in 2018 and is forecasted to reach $XX million by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.
The market is driven by the increase in adoption of essential oils as therapeutic agents for treating various diseases, growing use of aromatherapy at-home, increasing consumer preference toward natural products, and growth in lifestyle diseases.
According to Plastic and Aesthetic Research, burns causes one million accidents every year in Brazil. Aromatherapy has proved to be highly effective in burn pain. Pharmaceuticals have various adverse effects and thus people are leaning towards naturally developed products. Bacteria and viruses do not develop resistance to natural substances, the way they do in case of synthetic drugs. Furthermore, pharmaceuticals might damage healthy cells along with the diseased ones, for instance, in the case of cancer therapy. Thus, extensive research is being carried out to study the benefits of essential oils in the management of brain cancer due to the fact that the molecular size of many drugs is large, which makes them ineffective as a treatment solution. On the other hand, essential oils have tiny sized molecules that work effectively without harming the brain. Thus, these products, as a naturally processed medicine have immense potential in treating chronic diseases without damaging the surrounding tissues.
The market restraints include stringent regulations, lack of proper guidelines and lack of medical evidence supporting aromatherapy as therapeutics.
Market players need to mention indications, for example, whether the particular essential oil falls under therapeutic grade or cosmetic grade and what dosage is suitable.
