AROMATHERAPY

IT MAY JUST BE WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERS!

Hello, Dyan here (The Health Coach Is In) to talk this week about aromatherapy and essential oils and how they can (absolutely) be a benefit to your health.

LET'S LOOK AT HOW IT ALL BEGAN....

     Aromatherapy actually started 6,000 years ago with the burning of fragrant woods, leaves, needles and tree gums to scent huts, cottages and houses.

     It seems the Egyptians may have been the first people to extensively make use of essential oils and aromatic herbs. Oils, like cedarwood, clove and myrrh were used by the Egyptians to EMBALM THE DEAD. When a tomb was opened, traces of the herbs were discovered with intact portions of the body. Amazingly, the scent (although faint) was also still there.

     However, the Chinese may have been the first culture to use essential oils for WELL-BEING. They have always been well known for making use of herbs and aromatic plants. They may have started using these oils as far back as 1,000 years ago.

     During the 14th century, THE BLACK DEATH hit and killed millions of people. Herbal preparations were used extensively to help fight this terrible killer. It is believed that some people may have avoided the plague, by their constant use of natural essential oils.

     But it was the French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who discovered the true healing effects of essential oils when he burned his hand badly in his laboratory. As he grabbed the first available compound he had handy (lavender) to treat his badly burnt hand, he found not only did this undiluted lavender oil immediately ease his pain, but it also helped heal his hand without any signs of infection or a scar.

Gattefosse then coined the name "AROMATHERAPY."

     Which brings us to modern times. Since the late 1970's the use of essential oils has become a major part of alternative and holistic health care, and has a huge following across the world.

WHAT ACTUALLY ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

     Essential oils are concentrated extracts taken from the roots, leaves, seeds or blossoms of plants. Each contains its own mix of active ingredients and this mix determines what the oil is used for.

      Choosing the right essential oils can help many conditions from colds to headaches to wound healing and weight loss.

SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT A FEW OF THE BENEFITS FROM THE MOST POPULAR ESSENTIAL OILS.
