About Aromatherapy Associates
The use of herbal remedies to promote health goes back a long time in history and occurred in many different places. The Mesopotamians used it, and so did the population on the Indian subcontinent 5,000 years ago. The Chinese also believed in the power of plants to cure diseases.
In 1550 BCE, Egyptians would use plants to treat body and soul. 1,500 years later, Cleopatra took fermented milk baths to maintain her youth (or at least, that is what Aromatherapy Associates claims). Hippocrates, claimed to be father of Western medicine, is said to have recommended aromatic baths. Christian monks passed on the knowledge from Greek and Roman times during the Middle Ages and in the 17th century, Plague Doctors in London would wear masks with herb spices to protect themselves from the disease.
But the first use of the word ‘Aromatherapy’ is by René-Maurice Gattefossé, a perfumer and biochemist. Another influential figure is Marguerite Maury, an Austrian biochemist who studied the use of oils. Together with Jean Valnet, a French physician and surgeon, she helped Micheline Arcier create the modern conception of aromatherapy. Arcier later trained Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey, the founders of Aromatherapy Associates.
Aromatherapy works in different ways. Through smell, aromatic molecules come into contact with olfactory neurons (nerve cells that specialize in smell), this creates impulses that travel to the limbic system, which is responsible for (among other things) emotions.
By inhaling essential oils, you absorb them and contribute to the maintenance of your respiration system. Absorbtion can also happen thorugh the skin. Once the aromatic molecules enter your blood circulation, they can travel to all the parts of your body. Thanks to this, essential oils can help mitigate acne, eczema and aging skin. While acne and an aging skin are not unhealthy, they can lead to emotional insecurity. Aromatherapy promises to relieve people of such anxiety.
