Aromatherapy dates back 6000 years or more. The Greeks, Romans, and ancient Egyptians all used aromatherapy oils. The Egyptian physician Imhotep recommended fragrant oils for bathing, massage, and for embalming their dead nearly 6000 years ago. Imhotep is the Egyptian god of medicine and healing. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, used Aromatherapy baths and scented massage. He used aromatic fumigations to rid Athens of the plague.
The modern era of Aromatherapy dawned in 1930 when the French chemist Rene Maurice Gattefosse created the term Aromatherapy for the therapeutic use of essential oils. He was fascinated by the benefits of lavender oil in healing his burned hand without leaving any
scars. He started investigating the effects of other essential oils for healing and for their psychotherapeutic benefits.
During World War II, the French army surgeon Dr. Jean Valnet used essential oils as an antiseptic. Later, Madame Marguerite Maury elevated Aromatherapy as a holistic therapy. She started prescribing essential oils as a remedy for her patients. She is also credited with the modern use of essential oils in massage.
Aromatherapy works on the basis that the aroma of the essential oils triggers the limbic system – the part of the brain that seems to
be linked with emotion. This is why it can affect how you feel, and help you relax. Massage helps your skin to absorb warmed essential oils; these oils improve the effectiveness of the massage in treating specific physical problems. Aromatherapy uses warm essential oils to activate your sense of smell and increases your sense of well-being.
The oils can be used in many other ways for example: Dropped into water for you to bathe in, Blended with other oils, Used in steam for inhalation, Used in burners for your sense of smell ,Can be used for older people with dementia to relieve distress, aids sleep patterns, (insomnia) or sleeping for too long.
