Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy which involves using essential oils for balancing mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Essential oils are concentrated liquids derived from flowers, leaves, stems and root of plants. They are produced through the process of steam distillation or cold pressing. Essential oils vary in colour ranging from amber to yellowish, depending on which part of the plant the oil is derived from. The therapeutic effect of each essential oil varies from being calming, relaxing, uplifting to refreshing or stimulating. Using certain essential oils can also ease stress-related symptoms.
Definitely not! Some scholars believe that the history of aromatherapy dates back to 40,000 years. Egyptologists credit ancient Egyptians for using plant oils in healing between four and six thousand years ago. They used these plant oils for medicinal and cosmetic purposes, including bathing, perfuming and healing properties. The term aromatherapy has been credited to Rene Maurice Gattefosse who, in his book, wrote about the anti-bacterial effects of essential oils. However, it was not until French Biochemist Madame Margaret Maury came up with massaging using the essential oils of plants as a healing practice did the history become realised.
