While plant oils and herbs have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, aromatherapy is believed to have originated in 1928 when a French chemist, René-Maurice Gattefossé accidentally burnt his hand. In reaction to the burn, Gattefossé plunged his hand into the nearby vat of lavender oil. When the burn healed quickly and he was left with no scar, he felt compelled to investigate the oil further.
Aromatherapy is now one of the most popular forms of complementary therapy. Essential oils are used with the hope of treating and preventing illness, as well as encouraging rest and relaxation. For this reason, aromatherapy is especially beneficial for stress-related concerns like headaches, anxiety and stress.
