Why using essential oils in therapy?
Essential oils have been used for a period of time. The Egyptians were one of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in medical therapy, beauty treatment, food recipes. Frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh and cinnamon were considered especially valuable along caravan trade routes and can exchange for gold.
Spreading from the Egyptians, the Greeks used essential oils in therapeutic massage and Aromatherapy. The Romans also used aromatic essential oils for health and personal hygiene. Then Chinese, Indian use aromatic herbs, the Persians began to refine extracting essential oils from aromatic plants. Essential oil extracts were used in Europe for their anti-bacterial and fragrance.
Powerful healing properties of essential oils reappeared in 1937 by a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who healed a badly burnt hand with pure lavender oil. A French contemporary, Dr. Jean Valnet, used therapeutic-grade essential oils to successfully treat injured soldiers during World War II. Dr. Valnet went on to become a world leader in the development of aromatherapy. The modern use of essential oils continued to grow fast by health scientists and medical practitioners as more and more research and validate the numerous health and wellness benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oils.
How to use Therapeutic Essential oils in Daily Life?
Modern trends towards more holistic approaches of self care and more and more scientific validation of alternative health practices are driving a rediscovery of the profound health benefits of essential oils. Many essential oils have powerful cleansing properties and are naturally anti-microbial. Their unique chemical structure allows them to pass through the skin directly for immediate and systemic impact to topical application. And certain oils may be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well-being.
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination.
Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile organic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue.
