Aromatherapy and Egypt
〽️ Simply put, Aromatherapy is to Egypt what Yoga is to India. Egyptians are considered the first known Aromatherapists and used oils thousands of years ago.
〽️ Ancient Egyptians used oils for the mummification process, for spiritual, cosmetic, and medicinal purposes. Many jars were found in Tutamkamon Tomb and still contained traces of Spikenard's scent.
〽️ Today, Egypt is a major player in essential oils production and exportation. Delicate Jasmine, Neroli, Rose or even Geranium sold overseas are often produced here in Egypt.
