Aromatherapy originator was a Frenchman. Aromatherapy has its roots in the most ancient healing practices of humankind for the plants which we now derive essential oils has been used for thousands of years before the technique of distilling oils were discovered.
In Ancient times they were the only medicine available.
In the early 20th century Renee Gattefosse rediscovered the healing properties of oils when he found that many of them were better antiseptics than the chemicals used in the family perfume company. Then he burnt his hand in an accident and plunged it into some neat lavender. As the burn healed so quickly he researched the use of oils in dermatology and recorded their medicinal properties. In 1926 he published a scientific paper titled aromatherapy. During the First World War he accelerated the healing of wounds by using oils to treat solders.
Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy which approaches the whole person in both mind and body.
