From the beginning of early civilization, aromatic plants have been used for their therapeutic properties. Egyptian papyri and Chinese manuscripts describe the medicinal use of aromatics employed thousands of years ago. The Egyptians placed a great value on aromatic oils and even included thirty-five alabaster jars of oils in King Tutankhamen’s tomb. Similarly, the Greeks attributed the invention of perfumes to the gods and believed all aromatic plants to be of divine origin. Additionally, there are many references to aromatics, ointments, and incenses (such as frankincense, myrrh, rosemary, ect.) in the Bible and the Torah. Hippocrates (commonly referred to as the “Father of Medicine”) studied the effects of plant based essential oils on health, and promoted their use for medicinal benefits.
The properties of essential oils, whether inhaled or applied to the skin, activates the olfactory tract, which then effects the limbic system of the brain. The limbic system is responsible for processing and storing emotion, memory and smell. Studies have shown that essential oils can be a powerful key to help release stored stress and emotional trauma.
