A Little History About Essential Oils
Essential Oils have been around for centuries. The first recording of Essential Oils dates back to 4500 BC. According to records, people used Essential Oils in rituals and for medicinal purposes.
When King Tut died, his tomb held 50 jars totaling 350 liters of Essential Oils. Tomb robbers took the Essential Oils out of the jars for easier carrying and left the king’s gold. To them the Essential Oils were more valuable than the king’s wealth buried in his tomb.
During the Roman Empire years, the Romans would purify their temples and political office buildings by diffusing Essential Oils. They also used the oils in their bathhouses to ward off disease or illness and to invigorate themselves.
In 1817, a discovery of a 1500 BC scrolls documenting the use of Myrrh oil. The scrolls documented that Myrrh Oil was effective in clearing up skin infections, throat infections, and regenerating damaged skin tissue.
The Bible also has many references on the use of Essential Oils.
Through the years, we stopped using Essential Oils and started using man made medicines. In the last 50 years or so, Essential Oils are making a return to the health community.
