Aromatherapy was developed from the ancient practice of using different plant essences to promote a person’s health and wellbeing. Art and writings from ancient civilisations of Egypt, Persia and China show the use of plant and oils in their medicine and religion. It wasn’t until the 13th century that the use of aromatic oils in England was first documented.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using plant oils and essential oils for physical and psychological wellbeing. Aromatherapy also encourages the use of other complementary ingredients such as vegetable oils, jojoba, hydrosols and milk powders.
People who practice aromatherapy tend not to use synthetic oils such as ‘perfume oils’. This is because they contain synthetic chemicals and do not have the same health benefits.
