INTRODUCTION TO THE AROMATHERAPY

Today the word "aromatherapy" is used in different contexts, with different meanings and features, often, as not it rarely happens for the natural remedies, in the name of few scrupulous advertising, trivializing true or presumed popular traditions at the expense of the scientific aspects authentically.
The term "aromatherapy" indicates in reality at least two fundamental and different meanings, that differ in methodology, in type of involved operators and, in general, in approach to the patient:

1. the Anglo-Saxon Aromatherapy or Massage Aromatherapy , uses only the essential oils by external way (apart the olfactory action) and primarily used by paramedical personnel for finality, generally, of psycho-physical relaxation, according to a vision holistic and energetic;

2. the French Aromatherapy or clinic Aromatherapy, administers the essential oils through enemas or oral preparations, under the careful supervision of physicians and inside a complex therapeutic strategy rigorously lined up to the academic medicine criterions (to such aromatherapy is also inspired the normative address fixed by the European Committee of Bruxelles).

The Aromatherapy Massage has a very ancient history, even if currently it finds many consents especially in the Anglo-Saxon countries.
The exceptional power of penetration and diffusion of the essential oils inside the human body has been being note at least for the times of Theophrastus, thus also the external application of the essential oils has one specific meaning, allowing to gain considerable benefits also among certain hardly employable essential oils (because of toxicity or causticity) by inside way.
Also when some experts as Tisserand refer to principles as "vital force" or "yin-yang" (referring to, in this last case, the Chinese traditional medicine) they do it in the awareness to tackle a complex theme. About that, the actual scientific order is in objective difficulty both by reason of semantic patrimony, and by reason of new models and cognitive tools that can be to propose and to apply…a "nobody earth" often trivialized with arrogance and in the wrong conviction that the human organism is just "a substitute of experiments in vitro" (Maury).
Tisserand believes that a certain "preparatory" phase is also necessary to the aromatherapeutic massage: a detox diet based on natural foods and on possible periods of fast.

The balneotherapy is a further modality to use the essential oils (above all terpenic oils), through an absorption that involves, simultaneously, skin and respiratory apparatus. The results can be particularly favorable for the improvement of the humor (for example through the antidepressant action of camphor and jasmine), to overcome states of stress and emotional tension (for example through the sedative action of lavender or rose).
It is enough to mention to the wide use that Maurice Messeguè made, with good results, of the bath herbs to the extremities, close with the acupuncture points.
The matter of the balneotherapy and the massage will be developed hereinafter, to completion of the knowledge acquired on the essential oils.

The Clinic Aromatherapy, also surely introducing some incontestable evidences of action, still possesses some difficulties of application represented above all from:
- requirement of a defined chemiotype and with precise chemical composition. Organoleptic features, physical property (above all refractive index and rotative power) and gaschromatographic profile (eventually associated with the mass spectrum) are essential to individualize and characterize identity of an essential oil;
- scant manageability, volatility, difficult maintenance and matching of the essential oils;
- complex execution and interpretation of the experimental comparisons (for example passage from data in vitro; from aromatogram to those in vitro);
- a certain unpredictabilty of action: the effect of the essential oil automatically is not referable however to the presence of a specific component and the way of acting of the classic antibiotics; therefore the action can depend also on the modifications of the individual ground (and from the general health state), from the preferential accumulation in certain districts (as cellular membranes), from the action of expansion on certain immune or metabolic-endocrine mechanisms;
- difficult standardization, availability or excessive costs of raw materials.
