Aromatherapy is a form of alternative health and medical treatments which can be traced back through history more than 3,500 years before the birth of Christ. It began during the time when the use of aromatics was first recorded in human history. The history of aromatherapy is very strongly linked to the development of aromatic medicine, which was initially combined with religion, mysticism and magic. Aromatherapy utilizes volatie liquid plant materials known as Essential Oils (EOs) and other aromatic compounds from plants for the purpose of impacting the mood and/or health of people. Essential oils differ in chemical composition from other herbal products due to the distillation process. Aromatherapy is often employed during the creation of hair and many beauty products.
