Essential oils have been used for therapeutic purposes for hundreds of years. The Chinese, Hindus, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used them in cosmetics, perfumes, and medicines. In America, the scents of flowers and some plants were used in infusions for body baths.
It is also known that Hippocrates used fragrant incense to rid Athens of the plague and Roman soldiers bathed in aromatic oil and massaged themselves regularly to stay strong.
This therapy is based on the fact that the ionized aroma of the plants is transported by the circulatory stream and permeates every corner of the body. This revitalizes powerfully polarized and discharged cells, corrects electronic deficiencies by recharging bio-magnetized batteries, and disperses cellular debris by dissolving viscous and diseased substances from body fluids.
It also oxidizes toxic metabolic waste, strengthens the bioenergetic balance, releases the mechanism of organic oxidation and self-regulation, and reaches the lungs and kidneys where it is eliminated or exhaled without leaving any remains.
This therapy is used in different pathologies, depending on the characteristics of each patient and the specific aromas for their treatment.
It is a therapy that uses natural aromas that carry a powerful concentrated charge of active bioelectric energy that enters the body through the mucous membranes of the nose and rapidly exerts therapeutic effects on all cells and tissues. Example: give salts to fainted patients to smell, these, absorbed through the nose, reach the brain with a strong charge of bioenergy caused by the powerful aromatic agent.
