Aromatherapy was a term coined by a French chemist in the 1920’s and the word has stuck to describe the use of these essential oils. However, they have been used for thousands of years as a way to heal, to calm and to rejuvenate. The oils are extracted from the flowers, seeds, fruit and roots of different plants and herbs. One of the most common, is tea tree oil. It can be used for all skin types. It has been shown to oxygenate skin cells and even repair damaged skin.
