History of Aromatherapy

Aroma meaning fragrance and therapy meaning treatment, can have a profound effect on the mind, body and emotions. Use of aromatics dates back to ancient China, India & Egypt over 4000 years ago. The Chinese used plants, woods and spices for medicinal purposes and to honour their Gods. They used it in conjunction with acupuncture. The Egyptians used aromatics to create massage oils, medicines, embalming preparations, skincare products, perfumes and also to honour their Gods. Aromatics was also utilised in India as part of the ancient medical practice known as Ayurveda. In the 20 Century scientists in Europe researched oils and discovered many more therapeutic properties.

Note: As with any Holistic Therapy, Aromatherapy can be an excellent, natural compliment to orthodox medicine. Aromatherapy should not, however, be used as a substitute for orthodox medicine.
All holistic treatments are available with a tailor-made aromatherapy oil blend at an extra cost.
