Essential Oils: Exploring the World of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy has been in use since ages. People have used it to relieve stress, lift mood, and feel rejuvenated. It is a treatment that involves the holistic well-being of a person. Essential oils have different effects on the human body, but every aromatherapy session leads to calming and soothing of the brain and inner self. 

Discovery of Aromatherapy 


Aromatherapy has been in use for thousands of years. It extends its roots to the ancient culture of India, China, Egypt, and many other places. However, the term "aromatherapy" was originally coined by the French chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé in his book which was published in the year 1937. Growing up surrounded by perfumes and essences, Gattefossé's early exposure led him to explore essential oils and therapy. 

Aromatherapy is a kind of treatment that involves using essential oils and fragrances to improve human health from within. The aroma of the oils is either diffused in the air through various diffusers, applied directly onto the skin, or even ingested in about 1-2 drops to enjoy the benefits.

Essential Oils and their Benefits
