Aromatherapy has been practiced for thousands of years. You can see it in the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt, where they depict the pouring or applying oils to the body to heal. It can also be found in the old and new testament in sections that describe anointing with oils.
A French chemist, Rene Maurice Gattefosse, rediscovered then benefits of the ancient science of healing with volatile essential oils (now called aromatherapy) when he accidentally used lavender oil to help heal a burn.
The term Aromatherapy can be a little misleading in that, although the oils are from aromatic plants and do have aromas, it is not purely the aroma that does the healing. Modern science has found a plethora of chemical constituents in essential oils that are capable of an incredible potential for healing. Although some of these are brought into the body through inhalation, they can also be absorbed through the skin or even through ingestion of some of the oils. Many of these constituents have well known properties, and some have properties that are yet to be discovered.
