Human beings had to rely on roots, leaves, fruits, and edible seeds of plants to maintain and improve their health system. The ancient Egyptian mummies that are kept inside the Egyptian pyramids for 40 plus centuries now were prepared with those essential herbal oils that are now being used in cosmetic products, bathing products, natural and alternative medicine products, and also in temples for their aroma and lovely scents. After undergoing millions of tests and experiments by human beings, the art and knowledge of aromatherapy has been transferred from generation to generation to us. Today, we all have access to different sources of information on aromatherapy and essential oils due to our ancestors and we also have old and recent researches and studies that have confirmed how herbs and plants, especially essential herbal oils help in maintenance and improvement of our overall health.
