What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is simply the use of “Aroma” as a preventive or therapeutic device in treating all types of ailments both physical and emotional. Aromatherapy can be just the inhalation of aromatic materials or oils may be applied to the skin in massage as well as internal use. If you have no training in the use of oils we suggest that you receive advise from a Aroma therapist especially prior to any internal use. Click here for more on Aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy has been practiced in one form or another since the beginning of civilization. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used fragrant oils for bathing, massage and medicinal purposes. The term aromatherapy itself was coined in 1928 by French chemist, René Maurice Gattefosse, to describe the use of essential oils for therapeutic and medicinal purposes.
An essential oil is named for the plant from which it is derived. Each oil has a range of specific applications for alleviating aches and pains, healing injuries, aiding recovering from dis-ease, and relieving the discomfort of many acute and chronic health problems. Essential oils are typically inhaled and with caution applied to the skin or; some may be taken internally.
