Essential oils benefit the physiological as well as psychological activity simultaneously in the body, owing to which they are largely used in aromatherapy. Until recently, aromatherapy was considered a complementary therapy; however, it is currently considered a mainstream therapy.

Restraint : Depletion of natural resources
A healthy ecosystem provides a range of benefits that acts as the foundation of human well-being. Plants are an essential part of this ecosystem as they balance the world by providing food and shelter. They also assist in physiological and psychological well-being through their therapeutic products such as essential oils. However, this source is exhausting gradually. This could be attributed to an increase in population and industrialization that has resulted in deforestation.
With the increased population, an increasing number of trees are cut to accommodate the increased number of people. According to The World Counts, “up to 28,000 species can go extinct in the next quarter-century due to deforestation. 13 million hectares of forest have been converted for other uses or destroyed by natural causes.
Essential oils are very concentrated compounds and have a very low yield. For example, one pound of lavender essential oil consumes around 220 lbs. of lavender flowers. Deforestation, along with the low yield of essential oil, is a major factor that acts as a barrier in the essential oils industry.
