What is Aromatherapy?

The word 'Aroma' means a fragance or sweet smell, the word 'therapy'  means a treatment designed to heal.

Aromatherapy is the use of oils found in plants, flowers and trees. The essential oils are used to maintain health, increase vitality and promote a feeling of well-being. They are considered to be the 'hormones', 'life force' or 'soul' of the plant. Essential oils interact with our bodies in three different ways, pharmacologically, physiologically and psychologically.

Nobody knows exactly when or where the ancient art of Aromatherapy began but it goes back at least 2000 years B.C. when records in the bible describe the usage of plants and their oils both in treatment of illness and in religion. The Egyptians used them for both cosmetics and embalming their dead.

There are possibilities that they were known of in China before that time. Their usage spread to the Greeks and the Romans who brought them to Britain. The Romans thought the oils to be good for relaxation, improvement of the circulation and to help with the healing of wounds.
