MAN'S FIRST MEDICINE

An essential oil is that aromatic, volatile liquid that is within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds; that is usually extracted through steam distillation.

The Chemistry of an essential oil is very complex and may consist of hundreds of different and unique chemical compounds. More over, essential oils are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs because of the distillation process that makes them so concentrated.

Ancient writings & traditions indicate that aromatics were used for religious rituals, treating illness & other physical and spiritual needs!

Records dating back to 4500 BC describe the use of balsamic substances with aromatic properties for medical applications & spiritual rituals. And the 1st distillation-apparatus dates from about 3500 BC, unearthed at Tepe Gawra in north east Mesopotamia ( today’s Iraq).

The Egyptians may have later been the 1st to discover the potential of fragrance & aromatic blends.  

The use of aromatic plants, herbs and flowers is the oldest form of healing disease and pain and was used throughout history. Knowledge about the medicinal effects of flowers, plants and herbs have been recorded in the oldest writings in history. Additionally there’s the therapeutic value of these precious scents and aromatic therapies which have incredible effects on the mind and senses.

The use of precious resins such as Frankincense and Myrrh dated back before 5000BC

The two most famous resins, Frankincense and Myrrh are found in combination throughout history and their usage is just as prominent today as in the ancient worlds.  Native to the Arabian Peninsula, Northeast Africa and China, Frankincense has been a staple of early Chinese medicine since 500 BC, while Myrrh was used as its complement.  

The Babylonians, Assyrians, and Ancient Egyptians used these two resins medicinally, in religious ritual, trade, daily life for more than 5000 years; the two were even depicted in hieroglyphics as offerings to Queen Hatshepsut in an Egyptian temple.  Frankincense and Myrrh were burned as incense for Judaic religious ritual, used as medical treatment for the Greeks and Romans, while in Christianity, the two were offered as the third gift by the Wise Men to the baby Jesus, and eventually implemented in Catholic churches as a burning ritual.  Today we understand so much more about their  compounds & exceptional healing properties medicinally and therapeutically to heal physically and emotionally.
