Aromatherapy is the practice of using volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being.
Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil Therapy, can be defines as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance and individual’s innate healing process.
It was the French perfumer and chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who coined the term “aromatherapyie” in 1937, with his publication of a book by that name. His book “Gattefosse’s Aromatherapy” contains early clinical findings for utilizing essentials oils for a range of physiological ailments. It seems vital to understand what Gattefosse’s intention for coining the word was, as he clearly meant to distinguish the medicinal application of essential oils from their perfumery applications.
So we can interpret his coining of the word “Aromatherapie” to mean the therapeutic application or the medicinal use of aromatic substances (essential oils) for holistic healing. As the practice of aromatherapy has progressed, over the years, it has adopted a more holistic approach encompassing the whole body, mind and spirit (energy).
