Egyptian Essence – Aromatic Trips

Sunday, 13 February 2011

Egyptian EssenceThe history of aroma essences dates thousand years back. At the time when the barbarian epoch reigned in Europe and people used skins for wear with natural scents, Egypt was known for making and use of essences and there are still secrets not revealed by the modern science. The essences were used in every aspect of life from preparing them for the sacred mummification procedure to personal care products.

History of aromatherapy creation

The essences based upon herbs and aromatic based upon volatile oil were widely used in the country of pharaohs. And here the major tendencies of the essences used were for sacral and medical purposes. The priests used oils to perform the rituals to ancient Gods lighting the icon lamps with specially selected appropriate essences. The wood gum and oils were used to mummify.

The essences were acquired in smaller amount from the wood tars and parts of herbs and plants to make medical ointments and tinctures prescribed for the diseased. Myrrh, sandal wood, hyssop, cinnamon, lily and this is not the complete list of herbs which were used by the Egyptian healers to make the medical essences.

Apart from the therapeutic features, they make the wonderful influence to the beauty of women.

The recipes of her masks, bath and lotions are used today by millions of women.

Apart from traditional herbal essences made everywhere, they are made from the exotic herbs and plants in Egypt. The most valuable are the essence of jojoba, sandal wood, lotus, ylang-ylang, patchouli and coconut. These essences help to relax or tope up, strengthen the hair structure, they favorably influence muscles and joints, rejuvenate the skin of face and body, help solve problems with digestion system, heal from cold, heal wounds and on the top of it, essences smell incredibly.

When buying essences, be careful since the Arabs are skilled in trading an they often offer diluted essences not concentrated, as it should be. The cosmetic product we buy is the aromatic composition which is made on the neutral oil (the oil of coconut, for instance) or liquid paraffin. And oily perfume is made from such a simple composition of ingredients. They have no value and the smell fades quickly.

Aroma essences are best to purchase in the state stores or shops of the Cairo Factory of Essences which come for higher price though the quality is better.

Various aromatic compositions with romantic names, sets of gifts are offered that can be used for massage procedure, as perfume or the healing remedy.

Once you got the essences, you’d better remember how to use the aroma oils and follow the instructions strictly. Even so popular and widely used essences as orange or menthol oils can cause allergic reactions with such side effects as giddiness, high blood pressure and even loss of consciousness when applied wrongly. Moreover, some skin reactions may bring to serious dermatological problems. Thus, you’d better be careful handling the essences in pure concentration. When applying the oil by the instruction, rub a few drops of the magic essence between the finger pads, massage the temples, a neck area under the hair line and behind ears, make a cup of aromatic tea with several drops of cocoa oil which has antibacterial and anti-catarrhal influence, relax and fall into a deep sleep which brings only peace and pacification.
