Smell is one of the most important human senses. Smell has a direct correlation to the limbic system in our brain, where emotions and memories are stored. Harnessing the power of smell via aromatherapy has emotional, psychological, and physical benefits.

Essential oils have been used since ancient times, going back to 2,800 BC, as recorded in Egyptian manuscripts. They were used as medicine, in religious ceremonies, for skin care, to cover up foul odors, and to purify the air. The modern history of aromatherapy began with the French chemist, René Maurice Gattefossé. Gattefossé coined the term after an accident in his lab led to the discovery of the healing powers of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). Essential oils possess profound therapeutic value to support the human body in functional health-giving ways.
