Aromatherapy developed some 600 years ago and has been used by the Greeks, Romans and ancient Egyptians. It was the Egyptian Physician Imhotep who recommended the use of fragnant oils for bathing, massaging and immolating the deads. The word Aromatherapy was first used by French Chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé. He was the one who also evolved the use of Lavender for healing the burns (during an accident where he burnt his own arm).

Method of Aroma :

Aroma Essential Oils are either rubbed or massaged in the ailing part of the body. Undiluted Essential Oils are termed as Therapeutic Grade. Techniques like Aromatogram are used to treat patients. In this, first the Doctor cultures a sample of infected tissue or secretion from the patient Then the sample is observed for a few days. Each of the sample is inculcated with different type of essential oils. The oil which degrades the population of the growing bacteria is given to the patient for the treatment.

Essential Oils work in different ways. At the scent level they effect the limbic system and the emotional centers of the brain. When they are applied to the skin, the essential oils activate the thermal receptors of the body and kill the microbes and the fungi. When used Internally (under the guidance of the Aromatherapic Doctor), the essential oils effect the immune system.

There are about 105 essential oils which are used for the Aromatherapy. However, apart from these 105 beneficial oils there are also the Hazardarous oils which are not used in Aromatherapy. Those who are not well acquainted with the Aromas and the Essential Oils should not use the Aromatherapy on their own. There are also some Essential oils which are not to be used at the time of pregnancy or certain asmatic conditions or epilepsy.

Despite of the harmful effects some of the aromas may have still the aroma therapy has come out as a useful and beneficial therapy. It is considered like any other treatment, Aroma Therapy too has the harmful Side Effects only if it s not properly administered.
