Aromatherapy is an ancient art of using essential oils and it is known and used for centuries. Even the old Egyptians, Greeks, Indians, Chinese and Romans discovered its benefits. An interesting fact is that 5000 years ago Ancient Egyptians used essential oils to add them to hand creams and hair treatments. So, technically, we might call them the ”first aromatherapy people”.
Simplified, this is the alternative medicine form that uses concentrated essences made from different types of fruits, flowers, beneficial grasses and plants in general as a therapy. It is mostly applied by inhalation, skinning and sometimes by oral usage of the oils.
But this beautiful skill is not just that. This is the technique that observes human like a complete being, considering and nurturing all the levels of his being and doing: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Aromatherapy is a way of life and a whole life process.
