You are true to yourself and trust in nature.
An essential oil is "essential" in the sense that it contains the "essence of" the plant's fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived.
Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression, solvent extraction, sfumatura, absolute oil extraction, resin tapping, wax embedding, and cold pressing.
Essential oils - amazing melodies that flow from the depths of plants.
The entire history of mankind is literally saturated with oils. The oldest school of aromatherapy was born in the IX century in Moorish Spain.
In Egypt, essential oils and other incense were widely used, because of the possession of which the Egyptian pharaohs repeatedly undertook bloody wars. King Djoser (2780 – 2760 BC) built a step pyramid in the Sahara, and its chief architect was Imhotep-an outstanding doctor, astronomer and sage.
Some scientists still consider him the father of aromatherapy. Unfortunately, after the fire in the library of Alexandria, very few papyri on medicine have come down to us. But still, according to the "ebers papyrus" (1550 BC), we learned that in ancient Egypt, incense was used for healing and treatment of diseases: priests treated with fragrant healing baths, inhalations, baths and showers, rinses, ointments were used.
The Egyptians knew about the ability of aromatic substances to affect the psycho-emotional centers. Each Pharaoh had incense to lift the mood, eliminate nervousness, increase sexual arousal, calm down, and if necessary – aggressive mood. They anointed their gods with aromatic oils. Thus, myrrh was dedicated to the moon, and frankincense to the Sun God RA.
Smells can affect us magically.
Properly selected scents can lift your mood or relax, awaken sexual desire and give confidence, as well as remind you of home comfort and family values. It all depends on the essential oil itself and the person's personal associations that are associated with various odors.
The Greeks, Arabs, Persians, and other peoples of Asia Minor, as well as the Romans, adopted the experience of the ancient Egyptians. Valuable information about the medicinal properties of essential oils is obtained from famous scientists of antiquity.
The ancient Romans used aromatic substances even more widely than the Greeks. They had three types of perfumes: ladismith – solid perfume, stigmata – liquid spirits, deepamala Foundation. Indian healers believed that scents open the soul and tune the mind. The very word "fragrance" goes back to ancient times and in the Indo – Aryan language means smoke, wind, smell.
When using aromatherapy, there is a concept about the effects of essential oils and their perception. The spectrum of biological activity of essential oils is very wide.
According to the manuscripts of the Chinese philosopher Wang Wei (618-907): "Scents have a purifying and restorative effect on you, strengthening your energy and filling your thoughts with calm and peace."
Incense, oils, and perfumes returned to Europe in the 12th century along with the crusaders.
The term "aromatherapy" (literally, the use of smell as a medicine) was first coined by the French chemist Dr. Rene M. Gattefosse in 1928. In 1964, D. Valne summarized his research in a monograph called "Aromatherapy", which became a reference book for modern aromatherapists. The development of aromatherapy was largely promoted by Marguerite Mauri, an Austrian biochemist and cosmetologist.
To date, there are different opinions among experts about the scope of aromatherapy. But all that unites them is a wide range in the knowledge and relationship of man with nature and the fact that essential oils are the soul of plants. As well as the fact that the concept of our emotions is indivisible from aromas.
