Essential oil have been part of
peoples lives for a millennium. Essential oil is mentioned in ancient texts of many
civilizations. They have been used in cooking, cosmetics, spiritual and
religious rituals. Essential oils have been used from ancient times up to and
including today. Looking to the future essential oil will continue to play a
major role in future lives.
Essential oils are used in a variety
of ways. They can be used in diffusers, relaxing baths, during massages, inhaled,
and rubbed into your skin.
Aromas can trigger memories. What do
you remember when you smell the aroma of an orange? Can you taste the last
orange you ate? What about the aroma of pine, spruce, or a blend created with cinnamon?
Does Christmas memories come flooding back into your mind? Perhaps it brings
back a time when you were walking in a woods or a forest?
Essential oil has been used to sooth skin conditions. From the first time ancient people realized rubbing a certain plant on their skin to ease an irritation to today, it still works the same way. Why using lavender can even chase away bugs!
Cultures have used essential oil for spiritual and religious ceremonies. We remember frankincense and myrrh as gifts from the three wise men at Christmas time. The aromas activate olfactory receptors and engage regions in the brains limbic system. This brings back memories, emotions, and state of mind.
