Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses natural oil extracts from plants to improve a person’s well-being in a holistic way.

This practice has long been observed, thousands of years ago by the Chinese by burning incense as part of their religious rituals to promote balance. The Egyptians also used oils and other herbs for spiritual and medicinal purposes and invented the machine that extracts oil from cedarwood.

Fast forward to the 20th century, a French chemist named René-Maurice Gattefossé developed an interest in the use of essential oils for their healing benefits. This interest was heightened after he accidentally burned his hand during an experiment and dipped it into a container of liquid which happened to be lavender essential oils.

Gattefosse was amazed at how fast his burns healed with little scarring. This inspired him to further study the use of essential oils from plants and experiment with it during the World War I by using it with wounded soldiers in hospitals. He used lavender, thyme and lemon as antiseptic.

From those experiments, he concluded that wounds heal quicker when applied with essential oils from plants. He also wrote books detailing the medical benefits of essential oils including the book entitled Aromathérapie: Les Huiles Essentielles Hormones Végétales which is translated into English as Aromatherapy, which had caught the public’s attention in the late 1930s. It was through this book that the word Aromatherapy was attributed to Gattefosse. And in today’s modern world, it has become a household name.
