The healing art of aromatherapy is one of the oldest methods of natural therapy. The power of plants (essential oils) is something that has been studied for centuries, from the time that sanctity and treatment was one. The studies on it and its use started centuries ago, to the point where today it’s considered an integral part in several therapeutic techniques.
Aromatherapy, even in the essence of the word, indicates the way it penetrates and acts directly. Through the aroma, that wonderful scent offers treatment, indicating that the essential oils can serve as therapy in various areas. The oils are the soul of the plant. For that reason, it is important to use natural oils and not synthetic (which are "dead"). The essential oils operate with intense power and absolute immediacy, throughout our system. The vital energy that they vibrate is able to break any “barricades.”
The use of essential oils started back in 2.000 BC, at least. We get our information from many different cultures. Namely, the Egyptians, the Chinese, the Greeks and then, the Romans, that spread it throughoutEurope. The first written text comes fromEngland, in the 13th century. The story continues through the love of various researchers, that they offered even more to the most pleasant of treatments. Such researchers were Gattekosse, Dr. Jean Valnet, Maury and many others.
Aromatherapy today can be an excellent remedy that offers health, positivity, vitality and relaxation. It is amazing how many different things we can do endless recipes of essential oils. The olfactory nerves carry messages from the oils to the brain by releasing memories, by activating the imagination, by cleaning and relaxing the mind. They balance emotions, bring mental balance, treat the earth. Through massaging, the essential oils penetrate the skin, therefore penetrate into the blood circulation and act as a catalyst for the recipe we brew. It is important to remember not to ever use undiluted base oils and they shouldn’t be washed off for 6 to 8 hours.
