For thousands of years, various civilizations have found many uses for essential oils. As far back as 4500 B.C., the Egyptians used them as medicine and as incense in spiritual ceremonies. The ancient Chinese used them as perfumes and in medicines as well. In Bible times, essential oils were used to heal wounds and to facilitate closeness with God. Civilizations from India, Greece, and Persia all used essential oils in similar manners. Today, western societies have begun to embrace their use once more. French chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé is said to have discovered the healing properties of Lavender oil in the 1920's after he applied the oil to his hand that had been burned in a laboratory explosion.
