History of essential oils

Most ancient civilizations already made use of the beneficial effects of essential oils.
Historical Indian and Chinese documents already describe the use of aromatic oils for promoting health. The Greeks and Romans regularly enjoyed fragrant oil baths and massages. The ancient Egyptians used essential oils such as cedar, incense and myrrh for embalming. We can therefore regard the Egyptian priests as the first aromatherapists in the world.

At the beginning of the last century the Frenchman Gattefossé laid the foundation of modern aromatherapy. He discovered that lavender oil quickly healed a burn on his hand and became fascinated by the effects of essential oils.
Use / application of essential oils

There are many ways to use essential oils!

Internal use
Although the internal use of essential oils can be very efficient, we recommend not experimenting yourself! Only use them internally under the supervision of a therapist. A very well-founded knowledge of the different oils is necessary. Some essential oils can be very dangerous if used incorrectly! The internal use by children (-6 years) and pregnant women is strongly discouraged. Never take more than 2 drops, maximum 1 or 2 times a day.



Massage, bath, shower

Essential oils are ideally suited for use during a blissful massage, a soothing bath or an invigorating shower. They easily penetrate the skin, where they exert their beneficial effects. For this, dilute them in a vegetable oil (eg sweet almond or jojoba oil).


Some guidelines for external use:

    • Body massage: 2.5 to 5% essential oil or 5 to 10 drops per 10 ml of vegetable oil.
    • Face oil or cream: 1% essential oil or 2 drops per 10 ml of vegetable oil or cream.
    • Aromatic bath: 3 to 5% essential oil or 6 to 10 drops per 10 ml of vegetable oil.
    • Shampoo: 1 to 2% essential oil or 2 to 4 drops per 10 ml.
    • Local use: for certain applications, much higher concentrations are applied (> 20%), eg on muscles and joints, anti-parasitic, ... such applications are only carried out under the supervision of a therapist!


Spray
Essential oils bring a pleasant scent into living and working spaces. Preferably use electric injectors that do not heat up the oils and spray them extremely finely. 15 minutes of spraying per hour is sufficient.

Inhale
Is an excellent way to soothe and calm the airways and throat. The essential oils release the nose, making breathing easier. Pour 2 to 3 drops in a bowl of hot water and breathe in the vapor for 5 to 10 minutes (beware: avoid irritating oils!).
