So what is aromatherapy? Hippocrates, known as the father of modern medicine, maintained 2,500 years ago that “the key to good health rests on having a daily aromatic bath and scented massage’. Aromatherapy is the use of aroma to enhance a feeling of well-being. The concept of aromatherapy was first point out by a small number of European scientists and doctors, in around 1907. In 1937, the word first appeared in print in a French book on the subject: Aromathérapie: Les Huiles Essentielles, Hormones Végétales by René-Maurice Gattefossé, a chemist. An English version was then published in 1993.
Oils are good face cleansers, make up removals, moisturizers, all in a bottle kinda thing. We like grape seed oil, argan oil, marula oil, passion fruit oil or jojoba oil. We think rosehip seed oil has a great texture. And think that the sweet fruity aroma of neroli essential oil smells pretty. One thing we hope you get from reading this, is the importance of oils to maintain healthy skin. We say it again, the best way to maintain good looking skin is to: oil up. In a world full of acids, peels, harsh exfoliants like retina or glycolic acid, we need to make sure we are using the correct oils. Oils are in, ’cause they work. So oil up.
