WHERE DID AROMATHERAPY BEGIN?
Aromatherapy has been used by mankind for many centuries. The book of Exodus in the Bible records the instructions that God gave to Moses telling him to prepare a holy anointing oil by mixing liquid myrrh, sweet-smelling cinnamon, sweet-smelling cane, cassia and olive oil. (Exodus 30:22-25)

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS (EOs)?
The characteristics of essential oils include:
1. Essential oils are essences extracted from plant material. For example lavender essential oil is extracted from the flowering tops of the lavender plant. Rose essential oil is extracted from the rose flower, eucalyptus from the leaves, ginger from the roots, sandalwood from wood, orange from the fruit, celery from the seeds, cinammon from the bark, frankincense from the gum.

Note that, different essential oils can be produced from the same plant. For example the bitter orange plant Citrus aurantiumn produces orange essential oil from its fruit rind, neroli essential oil from its flowers and petitgrain essential oil from its leaves.

LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY INFORMATION
1. Do not use it in pregnancy especially the first 3 months.
2. Do not use it if you are breastfeeding.
3. Do not use it on young children as it may cause breast development in boys (gynaecomastia) and girls (pre-pubescent breast development).
4. Avoid it if you have low blood pressure as you may feel drowsy after using it.
5. Do not use it alone for more than 2-3 months as it may lead to sensitization.
6. Do not confuse essential oils with fragrance oils as the latter are not the natural essences.
