    Aromatherapy is not covered under most health insurance plans,  as it is not considered to be a proven or traditional form of treatment. That said, you may find some alternative carrier providers, such as a chiropractor or mental health professional, that may include the cost of aromatherapy in the normal fees charged for an office visit.

    Aromatherapy is generally not covered by health insurance plans - it's essential oils that aren't traditionally used by a doctor for medical treatments. There hasn't been much clinical evidence to show strong efficacy against infections and other medical conditions, even though they may provide some therapeutic benefits.

    If it's incorporated as part of an office visit with certain medical professionals, the plan may provide some coverage if it's part of normal fees charged for the visit.

    Ultimately, you'll want to consult with your agent/carrier regarding your specific plan to see what situations, if any, aromatherapy may be covered.
