Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that is now widely practiced throughout the world. Medical history studies indicate the popularity of aromatherapy in ancient civilizations such as Persia as a method of decontamination and treatment.
Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it’s called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy is the practice of using volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being.
The history of aromatherapy dates back at least to 4000 BC, Persians used to use aromatherapy oils. The most important step in the history of Aromatherapy was made by the Persian civilization. Ibn Sina, a great physician of the age, known in Europe as Avicenna (circa 1000 AC ), invented a pipe which steam distilled the plants and produced true essential oils and not aromatic waters as in the past.
Ancient Persians tried to cure illnesses by using herbs and applying certain principles of hygiene. Foul odors and stale air were believed to transmit diseases. Therefore, fragrances were used in keeping with the divine forces, and aromatic substances, herbs and woods were employed as a means of prevention to eliminate the causes of illnesses, and as a cure for certain mental and physical diseases.
