Since the beginning of time, humans have used
what we currently term Aromatherapy. Fragrant Plants were worn or sniffed
to heal the body. Flowers were utilized
attract love and to secure food and protection. Often, the rarest, costliest and
most aromatic plants were offered in sacrifice to Goddesses and Gods.
Although the purpose was to please the deities, the smoke of the incense and the
scents also affected worshippers. Specific scents were utilized in ritual
to attain the correct state of consciousness necessary to the practice of spirituality and mysticism.
The Vedic literature of India which dates from
around 2000 BC, lists over 700 substances used in aromatherapy. The manner
in which it is written reflects a spiritual and philosophical outlook, in which
humanity is seen as a part of nature and the handling of herbs as a sacred task.
The Chinese have an ancient herbal tradition which accompanies the practice of
acupuncture, the earliest records of which date from more than 2000 years BC.
Perhaps the most famous and richest associations concerning the first aromatic
materials are those which surround the ancient Egyptian civilization.
Papyrus manuscripts date back to the reign of Khufu, around 2800 BC and document
the use of many medicinal herbs and oils. The ancient Egyptians were
experts of cosmetology and renowned for their herbal preparations and ointments.
This practice of using sacred scents and
essential oils is still in evidence throughout the world. For example, in
the East, sprigs of juniper are burnt in Tibetan temples as a form of
purification; in the West, frankincense is used during the Roman Catholic mass.
First Nation and Native American people have always used sacred plants in
ceremony and healing.
All the above and more
are the origins of the scented oils and incense used in alternative healing
modalities. Conventional aromatherapy utilizes essential oils and massage
to heal the body, mind and spirit and is increasing in popularity as many
experience its effectiveness. Hospitals in Europe regularly utilize
aromatherapy to speed healing and reduce the pain of patients. In France
it is part of the allopathic/traditional medical model to use aromatherapy in
care and often it is used in lieu of pharmaceuticals. On every store shelf
there are examples of aromatherapy being used in society - lotions, dryer
softrner sheets and much, much more is taking advantage of the resurgence in the
use of aromatherapy
Holistic aromatherapy is a complex art in
which essential oils are inhaled or applied to specific parts of the human
physical body to produce the desired physiological, mental and emotional effect.
The art of aromatherapy lies in proficiency and wide knowledge of the properties
of essential oils and in their use in treating specific conditions.
