History of Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy has been used by mankind for its healing qualities for over 5,000 years. The father of modern aromatherapy, Dr. Rene-Maurice Gattefosse coined the term aromatherapy and wrote his first book in 1937. During WWII essential oils were used to heal and disinfect wounds. Today physicians in France still use essential oils to help heal their patients.
How does Aromatherapy work?
Odor stimuli from plant essential oils can facilitate the release of neurotransmitters in the brain to reduce pain and create a feeling of well being. Different scent stimuli can affect different areas of the brain. For example lavender induces calmness, while peppermint increases mental alertness.
Grampa's Garden has selected only the purest medicinal grade essential oils from all over the world to help heal your body and soul. Our aromatherapy pillows contain healing herbs of soothing lavender, or invigorating mint, and come with a .25 oz bottle of essential oil to re-scent them.
Please note: Aromatherapy pillows are non-heatable.
