Why Cleopetra used Aromatherapy for Healing

Did you know that the beautiful Cleopatra used aromatherapy for inner healing?

Aromatherapy has been used by ancient civilizations such as the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and even the Chinese and Indians to heal ailments (Gattefosse, 1993).  In fact, the use of essential oils, usually distilled from plants, seeds, flowers, trees as well as bushes, was and still is used to enhance emotional and physical health, and even one’s well-being (Segen, 1998).

If you’re interested to try aromatherapy in your own home, aromatherapy expert at BsaB, Sally Lai, says that it is important to look for essential oils, candles or scent diffusers that are made from natural ingredients. For example, the candles at BsaB are made purely from soy wax from soy beans grown in trusted organic farms in the U.S. It is important to know that many commercial candles are actually made with crude oil or synthetic fillers. Avoid them!
