General information on aromatherapy

Aromatherapy massage and essential oils date back for thousands of years, and aromatherapy is reputed to have been practiced in ancient Egypt where they were massaged with fragrant essential oils – a practice the ancients Greeks and Romans continued.

The Romans went even further and imported oils from all over the world, through the trade routes opened by themselves. The use of aromatherapy and aromatic essential oils have been noted in most ancient cultures, ranging from the above to the Aztecs and Chinese to the ancient Indian system known as Ayurvedic.

The term aromatherapy can be attributed to the French chemist Rene Maurice Gattefosse, who published his findings regarding the healing powers of essential aromatic oils in 1937.

It is contended that aromatherapy and essential oils are useful in the improvement of the psychological well being of the person, as well as being therapeutic for the physical body.

Oils are chosen for their specific properties, when this type of massage is done. Aromatherapy does not only refer to the massaging with essential aromatic oils, but also include the use of such oils in a bath, use in a vaporizer and in inhalation.

Lately more people are interested in aromatherapy because we seem to be moving towards a more health conscious society, where alternative methods are also considered to assist in our general well-being.

Essential oils are beneficial in relieving stress and a multiple of other ailments.

Although aromatherapy could not claim to help alleviate all ailments and problems, people have reported the most amazing results with the use of essential oil treatments.

Producing aromatherapy oils is extremely expensive, as vast amounts of plant material, such as rose petals, are required to produce only a very small quantity of essential oil. (Example: 2,000 kg rose petals will yield only 1 kg oil).

We bring you this page on massage with essential oils to promote a holistic approach, including aromatherapy, for anti-aging, being ageless, increasing energy, vitality and health, while decreasing stress and other ailments.

Use all oils with care and as prescribed.
