Not All Oils Are Created Equal

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for various purposes, including medicinal, cosmetic, and religious practices. The use of aromatic plants and their extracts dates back to ancient civilizations. Here's a brief overview of the historical use of essential oils:

  1. Ancient Civilizations: The use of aromatic plants and their extracts can be traced back to ancient civilizations such as Egypt, China, India, and Greece. These cultures used essential oils for religious ceremonies, embalming, perfumery, and medicinal purposes.

  2. Ancient Egypt: Egyptians are often credited with pioneering the use of essential oils. They used them in religious rituals, as perfumes, and for medicinal purposes. Essential oils like frankincense and myrrh were used in embalming practices.

  3. Ancient China: Aromatic herbs were an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine. Essential oils and herbal preparations were used to treat various ailments and promote well-being.

  4. Ancient India: Ayurveda, the traditional medical system of India, incorporates the use of essential oils in massage, aromatherapy, and medicinal formulations. The ancient text "Charaka Samhita" includes references to aromatic substances.

  5. Ancient Greece and Rome: Greek and Roman cultures also valued the use of essential oils. Hippocrates, often called the father of Western medicine, used aromatic oils for their therapeutic properties. The term "aromatherapy" has its roots in the Greek word "aroma," meaning fragrance.

  6. Middle Ages: The use of essential oils continued through the Middle Ages, often for medicinal and hygienic purposes. During times of plague, certain aromatic oils were believed to have protective effects.

  7. Renaissance: The Renaissance period saw a resurgence of interest in botanical studies and herbal medicine, contributing to the continued use of essential oils.

  8. Modern Era: The modern extraction methods for essential oils began to evolve in the 19th century, with steam distillation becoming a common technique. The use of essential oils for therapeutic purposes gained traction in the 20th century, leading to the development of aromatherapy as a distinct practice.

Before going out to buy any oils (not at a supermarket or department store)do your research only pure therapeutic grade. Please make sure they are tested. Do your research! I use doTERRA oils for many years and they are gold standard. It does not mean there are not other oils but just do your homework.
