A history of Aromatherapy

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, involves the use of natural plant extracts, such as essential oils, hydrosols and carrier oils, in a range of ways to heal the mind, body and spirit. The practice of aromatherapy aims to promote and harmonise physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Aromatherapy may be thought of as both a science and an art because it requires the knowledge of the scientific attributes of the plants and oils and combines it with the art of creating a beneficial blend. Therefore, a successful blend is a synergy of science, art, and the aromatherapist’s knowledge of both, as well as how to administer it, by inhalation or topically.

Aromatic plants have been used for healing and perfuming for thousands of years in the form of extracts, infused and distilled oils.

The ancient Egyptians venerated scent as a medicinal, cosmetic and as a part of religious practice. The ancient Romans viewed scent as a status symbol and Rome’s elite used common plants such as rose and lavender in daily life. The Romans spread their knowledge of aromatic plants throughout the Roman Empire which led to a wide use of aromatic plants in Medieval Europe.

The term aromatherapy, or aromathérapie in French, was devised by the French chemist and perfumer, René-Maurice Gattefossé in the 1930s. Today the practice of aromatherapy incorporates the use of essential oils, carrier oils and hydrosols for holistic healing.

What our Customers Say

Kirstine - The Rosewell Centre

"Sue is committed to the wellbeing of humanity and living proof of the benefits of Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga and Shiatsu.”

Jo - Yoga

"I find yin yoga is both energising and re-balancing. It is a great tonic to a busy day and I had the best night's sleep in years after one of Sue's sessions" 

Beth - 14 Classical Meridians for Equine Energy Work Book by Sue Hix

Thank you for sending it out! A few of the people on my course have your book and it's really helpful and clear!

Justin - Aromatherapy

“Aromatherapy massage helped me no end.  Thank you.”

Hilary - Shiatsu

"I am so glad I have discovered Shiatsu massage after so many years. Shiatsu was a revelation unlike any massage I’ve ever experienced. Sue locates and works on particular areas of tension/stress - where pain gathers. The whole body shiatsu experience is intensely relaxing and therapeutic. I recommend thoroughly Shiatsu at the Rosewell Centre."

Viv - Time Out for Peace event


Thank you for such a special afternoon, it just seems this is how life should be all the time.
Came away feeling totally comfortable and relaxed.

Thank you.

Hil - Aromatherapy

"I have had many aromatherapy massages before but Rose’s is different in a most significant way - she has a deeper understanding of what you and your body needs and her tailored way of matching your needs is unique in my experience - a very gentle and therapeutic experience. I recommend it without reservation."

Raymond - Yoga

“I have been participating in Sue’s early morning yoga class for many years. It is very enjoyable as the routines vary with new poses and ideas, the most recent addition being aerial yoga.  The use of silk hammocks adds a new dimension to practice, challenging different muscles to traditional yoga postures.”

Vanessa - Gong Bath Meditation

“I had a lovely meditation with Sally’s Ocean Therapy Gong Bath, the sounds were very evocative.  I heard the waves on a beach and whales singing! All sounds were very relaxing and I felt 6 inches taller after. It was well worth the drive from Wiltshire!”

Elizabeth - Yoga

"Although I had attended regular yoga classes over the years, I hadn't heard of Yin Yoga before so I thought Id give it a try! Sue provided us with the most comfortable, resting environment in which to practice this type of yoga and I felt that her wonderful soft and gentle tone and approach to the class enhanced the whole experience for me. Sue has such a vast amount of knowledge and understanding which I found incredibly useful as we went through our positions and I enjoyed both challenging myself and the wonderful opportunity to relax and reflect.  As if this wasn't enough, after each session, I had an exceptionally restful nights' sleep!  I would highly recommend this type of yoga and Sue."

Caroline - 14 Classical Meridians for Equine Energy Work Book by Sue Hix
