Decleor - The Benefits of Aromatherapy

Being rare and therefore highly prized, aromatic plants and Essential Oils have been used successfully for thousands of years.

With their use documented amongst ancient civilisations for anything from religious ceremonies and as medicines to beauty preparations for skin and hair and even in cooking, Essential Oils formed an integral part of the traditions of most early cultures.

However, it was only in 1928 that the term ‘aromatherapy’ was actually coined. French chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé, who was working in his family’s perfumery business, became fascinated with the Essential Oils’ therapeutic uses after accidentally discovering that lavender oil rapidly helped to heal a severe burn to his hand.

Gattefossé was followed in his studies by French scientist and doctor Dr Jean Valnet who went on to treat a range of medical and psychiatric problems with the aid of Essential Oils. Marguerite Maury established the reputation of aromatherapy in beauty by opening the first aromatherapy ‘clinics’ in France, Switzerland and Britain.

It was a mere seven years after Maury’s death that DECLÉOR was officially born in Paris, becoming the first beauty company to actively begin uniting the science and art of using plant oils in aromatherapy products and treatments.
What are Essential Oils and how do work?  

 

The skin is a mirror that reflects your general state of health. A physiological disturbance, a dietary imbalance, poor lifestyle or any kind of stress is all it takes for the body to reflect the problem directly on the skin.

Essential Oils are particularly effective in addressing these “disorders” thanks to their rebalancing properties. Impermeable to water, but permeable to gases and oils, the epidermis is able to absorb Essential Oils. This perfect affinity allows Essential Oils to penetrate the skin deep-down.

Essential Oils can enhance your body and your well-being by three important ways:

  • Through massage, they are able to enter the bloodstream, resulting in positive body changes
  • Once applied, the Essential Oils have a profound effect on the body, are able to simulate or relax, soothe or purify the skin.
  • Finally, the simple act of inhaling Essential Oils causes your body and emotions to respond positively.

 

DECLÉOR designs precise combinations of Essential Oils selected for their specific cutaneous or olfactory properties. These are called DECLÉOR Aromessence oil serums.

The harmonious energies of essential and plant oils help to maintain or restore the skin’s optimum balance, by providing it with vitamins, minerals and energy straight from nature.

DECLÉOR’s exceptional expertise of Essential Oils and research have enabled us to select 38 Essential Oils which are used in 150 formulations. DECLÉOR offers a unique art of beauty using the power of aromatherapy and the energy of Essential Oils for your natural beauty.
