"Aromatherapy" was first coined by the French chemist René Maurice Gattefossé in the early 1920's to describe the practice of using essential oils extracted from plants, flowers, roots, seeds and used for healing purposed. Gattefossé demonstrated that essential oils penetrate the skin and, via the extra-cellular liquids, reach the blood and lymph, which carry them in the circulation to the organs and promote wellness. A basic principle of Aromatherapy is to strengthen the self-healing processes by indirect stimulation of the immune system.  Essentially, modern Aromatherapy is the inhalation and bodily application of essential oils from aromatic plants to relax, balance, rejuvenate, restore or enhance body, mind and spirit.
