Aromatherapists. Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy). The use of essential oils for therapeutic purposes can be traced back to ancient times. The discipline was formalized by French chemist Rene Gattefosse in 1930s. The scent of the oils is analyzed by the part of the brain which controls emotions and memories, hence influencing the overall wellbeing of a person. The therapeutic properties can be obtained through inhalation or topical application.
