What is aromatherapy?
The term “aromatherapy” was first coined by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse in 1937, soon after discovering the healing qualities of the lavender plant for burns. Aromatherapy is a type of holistic therapeutic practice that uses aromatic flowers and plant-based extracts and compounds, called essential oils, to alleviate pain and enhance physical and spiritual well-being. It is considered to improve mood and health, and harmonizes the body, mind and spirit.
Essential oils are aromatic plant compounds, which are derived from various parts of the plant, such as leaves, barks, and herbs. They are called “essential” because their essence contains the plant’s fragrance. They are often extracted by processes such as cold pressing, solvent extraction and embedding, but the most common process is distillation through steam.
