What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.
“Aromatherapy” means the therapeutic application or the medicinal use of aromatic substances (essential oils) for holistic healing. As the practice of aromatherapy has progressed, over the years, it has adopted a more holistic approach encompassing the whole body, mind and spirit (energy).
"Aromatherapy is... the skilled and controlled use of essential oils for physical and emotional health and well being." Valerie Cooksley
"Aromatherapy is a caring, hands-on therapy which seeks to induce relaxation, to increase energy, to reduce the effects of stress and to restore lost balance to mind, body and soul." Robert Tisserand
"Aromatherapy can be defined as the controlled use of essential oils to maintain and promote physical, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing." Gabriel Mojay
"Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological, psychological and spiritual realm of the individual's response to aromatic extracts as well as to observe and enhance the individual's innate healing process. As a holistic practice, Aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active method to employ during acute and chronic stages of illness or 'dis'-ease.
It is a natural, non-invasive modality designed to affect the whole person not just the symptom or disease and to assist the body's natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself by the correct use of essential oils." Jade Shutes
What Is Essential Oil Therapy
If you have ever cut into a fresh sweet orange and suddenly felt a bit happier and more energetic, or smelled a bouquet of lavender and noticed you were a bit calmer and more relaxed, then you have already experienced the curative power of essential oils.
These oils are made up of tiny, fragrant and highly-concentrated molecules that are distilled from the leaves, fruits, woods, seeds, flowers and other parts of various plants. Not only are these natural compounds incredibly fragrant, but they actually have therapeutic properties that promote physical and mental well-being.
Essential oil therapy is the actual use of essential oils to help heal our minds and bodies. In the US we have been behind the curve in understanding the value of natural alternatives. As a matter of fact, essential oil therapy has been practiced around the world for thousands of years and is currently used as a medical treatment throughout Europe, Africa and Asia.
Dating back to ancient times the Egyptians, Greeks, and Chinese, infused oils and created herbal preparations for medicinal, fragrance, and cosmetic use. Scriptures tell us that the ancient Egyptians soaked the bandages of their Pharaohs with Cedar wood essential oil to aid in the mummification process. Hippocrates mixed powder from the bark and leaves of willow trees to cure headaches, pain and fever. Frankincense and Myrrh were gifted by the Wise Men because of their healing and fortifying properties, while Cleopatra seduced Marc Antony by surrounding her bed with rose petals.
Fast forward to the 20th Century, when a French Chemist named Rene-Maurice Gattefosse stumbled across the medicinal properties of Lavender essential oil when treating his burned arm. He noticed that this oil helped his burn heal quickly and left no scarring. This discovery gave rise to our modern-day use of essential oil therapy.
