Aromatherapy is the art and science of using essential oil plant essences for improving and maintaining health and beauty. The actual word “AROMATHERAPIE” was coined in 1928 by Rene Maurice Gattefosse, a French chemist. While conducting experiments, his hand was severely burned in a lab explosion and he found that LAVENDER healed it.
Several ancient civilizations (Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Chinese and Indian) have used Aromatherapy for their physical and mental well-being. Today there is growing interest in this gentle but effective method to balance body, mind and spirit.
Essential oils are the volatile aromatic compounds distilled from plants. They are the chemicals that give plants their smell; the luscious aroma or sharp scent. Each plant's oils have a unique makeup as a result of the plant's biochemistry and natural environment.
They contain each of the plant's healing nutrients including trace minerals, vitamins, hormones, amino acid precursors and other components. The essential oil of the plant is literally the life force of the plant.
The essential oil of the plant is literally the life force of the plant. Their chemical structure is easily absorbed into the human body, passing through cell membranes, then further on into the bloodstream due to their 'lipophilic' nature (a structure in alignment with the lipid components of our cell walls).
The oils are so highly concentrated, they are at least 50 times more therapeutically potent than the plant itself or herbs made from the plant.
The electrical frequency of essential oils range between 52 and 320. When essential oils come into contact with our bodies, the frequency of our bodies becomes raised to a degree so that we become less suceptible to pathogenic organisms. Isn't that amazing and awesome?
Incorporating essential oils in your daily regime can have so many benefits. Each oil is unique and has different properties and effects, so find the oils that are right for you. Essential oils have a long-standing history from the antiquity of civilization. Empower yourself to heal and balance your well-being with essential oils.
