FROM THE BEGINNING

An Ancient Science

"Aromatherapy" means using essential oils from plants for improving or maintaining health and beauty. Looking back into history, the practice is based on using the whole plant for various medicinal purposes, it wasn't until years after its reported first use that essential oils came into the picture. 

 

Aromatherapy dates back to ancient times, roughly 5000 years ago, when those in the know would take various plants possessing medicinal qualities from their surroundings and make blends to help those in need with pain, sickness, and so forth.

CRADLE OF MEDICINE TO PHARMACEUTICALS

A More Modern Science

As time progressed these people became chemists and distilled these plants into more potent oils, or in some cases creating synthetic versions of these original ingredients. Today we would call these ingredients pharmaceuticals.

ART AND SCIENCE IN ONE

Natural Accompaniment To Healing

Aromatherapy is going back to the traditional ingredients to treat and assist in the treatment of ailments. It is both an art and a science that promotes both physical and emotional health. 


So if it's anything from a bug bite itch, relieving gout, helping to relieve cold and flu symptoms, aiding in focus, or finding an uplifting aromatic blend, aromatherapy can help!
