Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic oils extracted from fruits, flowers, roots, leaves and resins.
Each oil has a unique set of beneficial properties, also distinctive fragrance, colour and chemical composition, which when carefully blended can encourage good health both mentally and physically.
Herbal oils have been used for centuries in the East to treat illness and promote well being, but the man who is most famous for reminding us in the West how effective essential oils can be was Rene- Maurice Gattefosse. Rene was a French chemist who burnt his hand at work and applied the lavender oil to the burn, which healed remarkably quickly with little scarring.
Essential oils can be used in a number of ways such as, in a bath, as an inhalation, as a compress, to fragrance a room and of course to complement a massage.
