Aromatherapy and herbal remedies have been around for thousands of years. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine) prescribed herbal and aromatherapy remedies. In the 1300s, people used aromatic herbs to ward off the Black Plague.
In fact, many of the ancient remedies described in historical documents are similar to the home remedies people use today. Because they work! For example...
Aromatherapy remedies for pain, stress and other problems work by boosting the body's internal process. They position the body to heal itself.
Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory nerves (sense of smell), which send signals to the brain's limbic system, which, in turn, triggers an emotional, physiological, endocrine (hormone) and / or immune system response. Voila! You get the therapeutic effect!
Published clinical studies show positive results on colds, sleep problems and emotional, stress-related disorders. Essential oils have also been shown to have a positive effect on digestive disorders and on skeletal, muscular and joint pain.
