Even though essential oils have been around and used for centuries for a variety of reasons, including spiritual, therapeutic, hygienic, and ritualistic purposes. The people that lived in ancient times, including those that lived in Ancient China, Rome, India and Egypt, as well as those that lived under Roman and Greek rule used essential oils as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and perfumes. Aromatherapy, or the use of essential oils to make a person feel better, was founded after World War II and did not become popular until the 1980s. Today it is used to alleviate the symptoms from a variety of ailments including the common cold, flu and diabetes. In addition, it also helps those that use it feel better.
To alleviate the coughing that often accompanies both a cold and the flu, it is recommended that those suffering take a hot bath for 10 to 15 minutes. This helps to dry out the mucus that is in the throat which causes coughing. Furthermore, an aromatherapy bath would be even more beneficial because, according to a study done in 1985, it helps people fall asleep faster and get a better night?s sleep. Therefore, gift sets are good gifts anytime someone is under the weather.
Another reason why gift sets of aromatherapy and bath salts are a good idea is because they help those diagnosed with diabetes as well as those who minor skin ailments. Prior to World War I, a French chemist burned himself during an experiment. He placed lavender oil on the scalded area and it helped him heal. He went on to prescribe lavender oil to soldiers in the war who suffered from burns, skin infections, gangrene, and wounds. After the war, the chemist founded the science of aromatherapy.
When it comes to diabetes, doctors have found that a bath, with or without bath salts, reduces sugar and glucose levels in patients. Furthermore, those that soaked in a hot bath for around a half hour six days a week lost nearly two and a half pounds more than those that did not over the course of a month.
If a bath does not seem to be enticing, try sprucing it up with some all natural hygiene including natural soap bars and organic bath salts. In addition, you can use botanica candles to soften the mood and relax as you soak in the tub. Many aromatherapy gift sets include candles and there has to be a scent that you like since there are over ten thousand smells to choose from.
If you are like seventy percent of households, then you already have candles in your home to make it feel comfortable and cozy. With that many people purchasing candles, both as part of gift sets, and alone, it is no wonder that more than one billion pounds of wax are used each year to make them. So, light it up and you will feel better in no time.
