Aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years. Hippocrates studied the use of herbs and plants with massage in order to promote healing, and the first use of aromatherapy was recorded more than 3,500 years ago. Distillation of plant and flower extracts were used in medical therapies in ancient cultures all over the world. There are two main ways in which aromatherapy can be used for healing.
The main method, of course, is through scent. Scientists now know that the brain is awakened and affected by aromas. Scents can stimulate our emotions in a variety of ways. This is because the portion of our brain that processes scent is connected to the part that processes emotions. When one is stimulated, the other reacts. So, when a person inhales a soothing scent like lavender oil, they receive an emotional trigger to relax. Aromas affect our feelings, moods and emotions.
The second aspect of aromatherapy has to do with the touch. Aromatherapy may include massaging essential oils into the skin to help your body stimulate blood flow and break down toxins. This, in turn, improves your health and well-being.
