ancestry of aromatherapy goes back some 4,000 years.
Ancient Egyptians used aromatic botanicals for massage,
embalming, medicine, and cosmetics.
Hippocrates himself might have been aromatherapy's first
spokesman 2,000 years ago, as he touted the benefits of
aromatic massage for physical and emotional well-being. In the
10th century, the Arabian world invented the process of
distillation, which allowed more efficient extraction of
essential oils. For centuries, cultures around the globe inhaled
aromas, drank potions, and wore aromatic amulets to protect them
from harm. In the early 1900s, France and England attempted to
re-introduce these ancient remedies and help them gain
acceptance in the more traditional medical community. This trend
continues in France today. Many French doctors prescribe
aromatic remedies, pharmacies stock essential oils, and
insurance companies pay for the treatment. In the United States,
aromatic healing is gaining ground.
