Aromatherapy: Review of History, Origins, Evolution
Humans experimented with aromatherapy from ancient times.
Classic civilizations from China, Egypt, India, and others, poured aromatic plant ingredients into Resins, Balms, or Oils.
Such organic ingredients were taken for religious or medical uses.
These had often delivered many, multiple physical or psychological benefits.
Essential oil distillation may be traced over to Persians from the 10th century, while oil distillation could be traced much earlier than the 10th century for aromatherapy use.
Historical records on essential oil distillation may be traced back to the 16th century in Germany.
French physicians from the 19th century acknowledged the capacity of essential oils to heal illness.
Medical doctors became more established in the 19th century and focused on using chemical drugs.
However, the French and German doctors still recognized the role of natural botanicals in treating illness.
The phrase “aromatherapy” initially originated from a French perfumer or chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé coined from research that he published on the subject which became available from 1937.
He initially had identified the healing potential of lavender to treat burns.
The research published is a review of general applications of essential oil to treat medical ailments.
