Although the term "Aromatherapy" was first used in the 1920s by French chemist Rene Maurice Gattefosse, essential oils have been around for more than 6000 years. They were used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Persians for spiritual, medicinal, cosmetic and fragrance purposes and are still used for similar purposes today.

Essential oils have a healing effect mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. They can be applied topically through the skin with a relaxation massage, a wrap, by bathing, with compresses, or in ointments or lotions. They can also be inhaled using a vaporizer, steam, a spray, an inhaler or by putting a few drops on a cotton ball.

It is advisable to obtain advice from a Registered Aromatherapist before you use essential oils in any way. They will be able to guide you in the safe use of these highly potent, very effective healing tools.
