a natural health and healing perspective, Aromatherapy can be defined
as the art of using naturally extracted aromatic essences (or essential
oils) from plants and trees to balance, harmonize and promote the
health of the body, mind and spirit.
Aromatherapy is a natural, non-invasive treatment system 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. It does this by enhancing the individual’s
innate healing process with the correct use of essential oils.
The term “aromatherapie” was named by Rene Maurice
Gattefosse in 1928. He used this word to imply the therapeutic use
of aromatic essences (essential oils). Since the beginning of Aromatherapy,
the practice has encompassed human pathology and the treatment of
different conditions (emotional and physical) with essential oils.
essences or essential oils are highly concentrated substances that
are extracted from various parts of aromatic plants and trees. The
chemistry of aromatherapy and essential oils is complex but due
to their tiny molecular structure, essential oils that are applied
to the skin or inhaled can be absorbed or entered into the bloodstream
very rapidly. Once in the bloodstream, the aromatic molecules work
by interacting with the body’s chemistry.
Whether absorbed through the skin or inhaled, once the aromatherapy
oils are in the bloodstream and body fluids, the essence may have
a pharmacological effect even though the amount absorbed is minute.
Gattefosse asserts that essential oils are diluted to a degree at
which no longer have any effect on living cultures in the laboratory
still has a clear, rapid and extremely beneficial action on the
human body. This therefore indicates that essential oils are immuno-stimulants
or bio catalysts to heal and restore homeostasis in the body.
