The word “Aromatherapy” was coined the phrase by French Perfumer, Rene’ Maurice Gattefosse in his book, Gattefosse’s Aromatherapy written in 1937. The book contains research findings utilizing essential oils for various physiological ailments. In the book, he meant to distinguish the medical application of Essential Oils from the perfumery applications. It can be said that Aromatherapy means the therapeutic application or the medicinal use of aromatic substances for holistic healing.
According to Valerie Cooksley, “Aromatherapy is the skilled and controlled use of essential oils for physical and emotional health and well being.”
Robert Tisserand who wrote, Essential Oil Safety, says, ” A caring hands- on therapy which seeks to induce relaxation and increase energy, reduce the effects of stress and restore lost balance to mind, body and soul.”
“A natural, non-invasive modaltiy designed to affect the whole person not just the symptom”, is what Jade Shutes says. (This information was collected from the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy.)
