Aromatherapy has long been applied in combination with the therapeutic effects of a warm bath. The Egyptians were perhaps the first people to use it, adding extracts distilled from herbs and plants which they deemed to be beneficial to the body. Later, bath recipes made their way to the Greeks who attributed it to the gods, and then to the Romans who were among the first people to ever come up with public baths. Today, aromatherapy bath recipes are popular among both men and women. More and more people are taking aromatic baths for the simple pleasure of inhaling pleasant smells while relaxing in the soothing warmth of water. Some specialists in alternative medicine are also recommending recipes to patients suffering from a variety of conditions, from superficial skin conditions to more serious medical conditions.
