Aromatherapy is one of the very powerful massage adjuncts because it allows the mind to relax so that it can get out of the way of the muscles. This is very important when you are doing something like receiving a massage. It is difficult for the masseuse to work on your muscles if you are tense and nervous throughout the session. This is why many will use scented oils, lotions, candles or even incense to help you relax while they work on your body. In other arenas, aromatherapy is also used in the process of prevention from bad behaviors. You can reinforce bad behaviors with a smell you do not like to stop you from repeating the behavior. This is because you will smell the disagreeable odor in your mind when you try to pursue the behavior.
