Aromatherapy is used topically and via inhalation. These oils may be applied to pressure points. Healing components are thought to be absorbed into the bloodstream. From there they disperse to the specific organs and systems on which they work.
Dating back to ancient times, aromatherapy was practiced by the Egyptians, Greeks and Chinese, using infused oils and herbal preparations for medicinal, fragrance and cosmetic use.
Harnessing the power of plants and nature, the therapeutic properties of aromatherapy were recognized and used for treating a person’s health and mind.
Fast forward to the 20th Century, when a French Chemist named Rene-Maurice Gattefosse noted that Lavender essential oil allowed for fast healing and no scarring when treating his severe burn.
There are many other intriguing essential oil stories from the past: Frankincense and Myrrh were gifted by the Wise Men because of their healing and fortifying properties, while Cleopatra seduced Marc Antony by surrounding her bed with rose petals. It worked!
