Abstract

Aromatherapy is a form of an alternative medicine. In recent years fragrance embedded textiles are being developed in areas of sustainability, environment consciousness, for healthy life style and well-being. Essential oil of several best known aromatic plants have therapeutic and sedative properties. It is important to develop such type of finished textile material in order to promote healthy and eco-friendly life style. Correct selection of oil and aroma must be considered before finish application. All fabrics take up and release oil & aroma differently depending upon their fibre structure. In present study wool fabric was identified best suitable for aromatherapy.
