What are essential oils? They are the oils that are extracted from a myriad of plants, trees, herbs and flowers. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in promoting optimal medicinal, spiritual, aromatic and therapeutic health and well-being.
Aromatics and essences and oils have been used in ceremony, religious observances, beauty care, food preparation and preservation, as incense, and for perfumes. The earliest essential oils first occurred in the period of 3000-2500 B.C. It’s common for Egyptians to be given credit as the first culture to use aromatic extracts for beauty care, culinary uses, spiritual and physical wellbeing. But it is believed that essential oil-like extracts were also being used in China and India at nearly the same time. Depending on who is citing historical evidence, you can also find references to Ayurvedic uses of essential oils in India much earlier. Additionally, essential oils have also been cited in historical text from Greek and Roman eras.
