 Herbalism versus Aromatherapy   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Herbalism, like aromatherapy, makes use of a large variety of plant material, but in herbalism the extracts are normally taken internally, while the ingestion of essential oils is only done under strict medical supervision, by medical personnel suitably qualified to do so.

In herbalism, the amount of essential oils that would be ingested would be minute, as the amount so obtained when making infusions (teas) is extremely small.
