Definition of Aroma Therapy:

Aromatherapy is an alternate therapy in which aroma is the main ingredient used for the purpose of treatment. This aroma comes from the use of essential oils which  are aromatic essences extracted from plants, flowers, trees, fruits, roots, bark, grasses and seeds with distinctive therapeutic, psychological, and physiological properties, which improve and prevent illness . There are more than 400 essential oils. At a time an essential oils can be used as it is or mixed with other oils.

Most of these oils have antiseptic properties; some are antiviral, anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, antidepressant and expectorant. Other properties of the essential oils which are taken advantage of in aromatherapy are their stimulation, relaxation, digestion improvement, and diuretic properties. To get the maximum benefit from essential oils, it should be made from natural, pure raw materials. Synthetically made oils should not be preferred as they do not give the required benefits, instead can cause many side effects like skin problems etc.

Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment of caring for the body with pleasant smelling botanical oils such as Rose, Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Ylang-ylang etc. The essential oils can be added to the bath, massaged into the skin, inhaled directly or burnt in a diffuser to spread fragrance into an entire room. In Japan, aroma systems are being incorporated into new buildings. In one such application, the scent of lavender and rosemary is pumped into the customer area to calm down the waiting customers, while the perfumes from lemon and eucalyptus are used in the bank teller counters to keep the staff alert.
Most of the time people are unknowingly practicing aroma therapy in their lives. For example, burning a scented candle or walking through a garden full of sweet smelling flowers, are some of the examples of practicing aromatherapy. In fact, nearly all of the bath and body care products used in the daily routine contain some form of essential oil which is again an example of aroma therapy.

Aroma Oils

The Greeks acquired most of their medical knowledge from the Egyptians. The use of olive oil as the base oil to absorb the aroma from the herbs or flowers was done and the perfumed oil was then used for both cosmetic and medicinal purposes. The Romans learned from the Greeks and became well known for scented baths followed by massage with aromatic oils. The popularity of aromatics led to the establishment of trade routes which allowed the Romans to import "exotic" oils and spices from distant lands such as India and Arabia but with the decline of the Roman Empire, the use of aromatics faded and the knowledge of their use was virtually lost in Europe during the dark ages.                
The modern day word "Aromatherapy" was first coined in the 1920s by French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who devoted his life to researching the healing properties of essential oils after an accident in his perfume laboratory. He was fascinated by the benefits of lavender oil in healing his burned hand without leaving any scars. While doing an experiment he accidently set his arm on fire and immediately thrust it into the nearest cold liquid, which happened to be a vat of NOx Ph232 or more commonly known as lavender oil.
During World War II, the French army surgeon Dr. Jean Valnet used essential oils as antiseptics to treat gangrene in wounded soldiers. Later, Madame Marguerite Maury elevated aromatherapy as a holistic therapy. She is also credited
with the modern use of essential oils in massage.
