Transcript of Aromatherapy

Aroma Therapy Aroma Means:
an odor arising from spices, plants, cooking, etc., especially an agreeable odor; fragrance. Therapy Means:
the treatment of disease or disorders, as by some remedial, rehabilitating, or curative process How Aroma Therapy Got Started Aromatherapy is not a recent discovery or development. Cave paintings up to 18000 BC that were discovered in France, depicted the burning of aromatic plants for medicinal use. But it is believed that aromatherapy originated in Egypt.

An example of how aromatherapy works was During a tuberculosis epidemic in France. The people that worked in the flower growing district were unafected. Which means that one or more of those plants had medicinal values for preventing tuberculosis.

Another example is when a French chemist, named Rene Maurice Gattefosse burned his hand in his laboratory and immersed his hand in lavender oil to cure the burn. He was impressed by how quickly the burn healed. Since then Rene Maurice Gattefosse began studying and expanding tecniques of useing essential oils. He eventually set up a business producing oils for use in fragrances and cosmetics. Through the century's Egypt, China, India, Rome, and Greece have been using Aroma Therapy . Egyptians began to use aromatherapy by extracting the oils from aromatic plants for medicins, cosmetics and the preservation of dead bodies. Oils were also used to tackle mental illnesses such as mania and depression. These oils were also utilized in hygiene and communal baths, as well as massage.
