How Aromatherapy Can Change Your Life

You may have heard of Aromatherapy but you probably have no idea what it is or how it can change your life. Perhaps you’ve seen ads for aromatherapy massage or even purchased what you thought were aromatherapy candles in the store. Most likely, you don’t understand much about aromatherapy or the wonderful healing powers possessed by true aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is an ancient Eastern art that has been practiced for thousands of years. Although it is hardly anything “new” it sometimes takes a little bit of time for people in the West to discover such things such as natural healing, especially when it is not in the best interest of the very powerful medical and pharmaceutical communities. Those of us who live in the West have an entirely different mindset than those in the East. In the West, when someone gets ill, they go to the doctor who more often than not, prescribes medication to treat or cure the ailment. The medication is produced in a laboratory and contains synthetic chemicals. Pharmaceuticals are big business and doctors are often courted by sales people from the companies to prescribe their product. Go to a doctor in the West for a bit of anxiety and they will prescribe anti depressants such as Zoloft. Chances are your doctor will have a prescription pad in his or her hand when they walk into the room. Zoloft is among the many different anti depressant medications that are relatively new on the market and lumped under SSRIs. The long term side effects of these drugs are not known, although they will most likely cause liver damage after long usage. No doctor it the West will prescribe any alternative treatment, such as aromatherapy. Some might tell you to exercise and take vitamins to combat anxiety, but most won’t even do that. The medical community dances on the strings held by the pharmaceutical companies and the name of the game in pharmaceuticals is to give people synthetic drugs that are addictive and costly so that they can make money. One hundred years ago, heroin was used as a cough medicine for children. Cocaine was put into Coca Cola and arsenic was considered “good for the complexion.” Perhaps, one hundred years from now, our descendants will be talking about how people were prescribed lethal substances to “cure” them from various ailments.

Here is the missing link in Essential Oil literature, the first modern work written by the man who coined the word 'Aromatherapy.' In July 1910 René- Maurice Gattefossé discovered the healing properties of lavender oil after severely burning his hands in a laboratory explosion. This led him into a lifetime of research into Essential Oils. His remarkable book was first published in 1937 and has been out of print for many years. Now translated, it has been edited by Robert Tisserand, author of three books on aromatherapy (including the best-seller, The Art of Aromatherapy), editorial adviser of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine and editor of The International Journal of Aromatherapy. The book is a fascinating blend of ancient and modern knowledge and aromatherapists will find it an essential tool of reference. Extensive notes are provided by Robert Tisserand at the back of the book. Chapters include those on human smells and animal smells, toxicity, the properties of essential oils and their constituents, the treatment of many diseases, and over fifty case studies from doctors.
