|What is natural fragrance?|
Natural fragrance is the vapor phase of natural matter. The natural vapor is composed of gaseous molecules which vibrate randomly and diffuse to the olfactory receptors in one’s nose through inhaling. Depending on the concentration of molecules and the viscosity of the mucus membrane, these molecules will eventually stimulate the olfactory nerve. The differences in their natural characteristics, such as intensity (of receptor impact), speed, and shape dictate their vibration and affect the type and number of receptors they activate; this causes different sensibilities to the nervous system. These different sensibilities are then interpreted by the brain to give the perception of fragrances.
|What is essential oil?|
|Essential Oils are the subtle, aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs and trees through distillation. According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians used essential oils to heal the sick. They are the oldest form of medicine and cosmetics known to man and were considered more valuable than gold.
Some of the precious oils, which have been used since antiquity for anointing and healing are frankincense, myrrh, galbanum, hyssop, cassia, cinnamon, and spikehard. Science is only now beginning to investigate the incredible healing substances found in essential oils. Yeh Essential Oils are 100% PURE and ORGANIC and they have the following benefits:
Essential oils are the basic materials for Perfumatherapy. As plant extracts, they should represent or contain the nature, essence and biochemistry of the plants from which they were obtained. Therefore, the starting material should therefore be of the best and highest quality. The plant itself, growing methods, soil, position, country of origin, seasonal conditions, and harvest method, will all play an important part in the final determination of quality.
|What are the medical benefits from essential oils?|
• Essential oils act on the olfactory nerves, which lead from the nose directly to the brain.
• Essential oils contain anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-infectious, anti-septic, anti-tumor, anti-fungal and immune stimulating benefits and other therapeutic properties.
• Essential oils are organic and act in harmony with the body, providing well-being and balance.

|From Aromatherapy to Perfumatherapy|
|The medical use of aromatic herbs is an Asian discovery. However, the use of aromatic essential oils was discovered in the West. Both are used as natural perfume remedies, and they are both part of natural medicine. The clinical use of these fragrances is called aromatherapy. Natural essential oils represent the best ingredients of the perfume industry. Based on scientific research, the effect of essential oil is 50-70 times greater than raw herbs. There are about 500,000 different types of plants on the earth. Indian Aryuveda lists eight thousand kinds of natural plants, animals, and minerals. The Chinese herbal classics list more than six thousand kinds.
Aromatherapy is beneficial for the treatment of diseases due to the medical mechanism of the aromatic herb or the aromatic essential oil. These have been utilized in China for thousands of years and in the West for hundreds of years. Although aromatherapy has wonderful healing effects, these products have never reached the technique of perfume and perfumatherapy™ because many opposing or random notes are mixed together.
Since Chinese medicinal herbs have their herbal oils, each of these are now identified with their aromatic and physical properties using the theory of Yeh notes of perfume. They are prepared with tenet and experience and brought into the field of natural medicine and perfume. Natural medicinal perfume has the effects of aromatherapy and more importantly, the fragrances harmonized. There are approximately three hundred different kinds of plants extracted for the manufacturing of medical perfume oil. And through over 43 years of knowledge in medicine and perfume, we have added many others.
This unique theory increases the number of perfume industry projects as well as the scope of utilization of these products. For instance, there is a medicinal herb called Eupatorium, which is the sister herb to patchouli. This herb was exported in large amounts to a perfume company in France from 1950 to 1980. Mr. Ru Yu Yeh, the father of Dr. Timothy Yeh and senior engineer of the natural perfume industry of China, was in charge of this operation. This made the French perfume product famous all over the world for over thirty years with the modern techniques of perfumery. Based upon what was done and what is being done, natural medicinal perfume is spreading both nationally here in the USA and worldwide. It is important to note the following:
1. The finished product must have two major functions: medicine and perfume – not only medicine and not only perfume.
2. The product must be convenient to take, use, and store.
3. The natural products are made into oils, liquids, pills, capsules, or sprays.
4. The product will bring new life to traditional herbal medicine.
5. The product will benefit people worldwide.
|What is Aromatherapy?|
|In 1937 Dr. Gattefosse, a French cosmetic chemist, published a book first named AROMATHERAPY. He wrote this book after he had survived a lab explosion in July of 1910. He used lavender to treat his wound, and it healed without a scar. Robert B. Tisserand, editor of the International Journal of Aromatherapy, researched aromatherapy for 20 years. After his research, he wrote a book “The Art of Aromatherapy” in 1983. Dr. Gary Young also specializes in aromatherapy and wrote a book, “Desk Reference” published in 2000, about essential oils.
Aromatherapy is widely used and accepted all over the world.
It is great because:
1) Essential oils are very powerful for healing.
2) The results of using essential oils are phenomenal.
3) The missing medical components of herbs are found and recovered.
4) It is able to amend the lost medical effects of herbal medicine.
5) The use of essential oils is looked as the extension use of the missing part of herbal medicine.
But we have to know that aromatherapy is,
1) Not related to the field of natural perfume
2) Not being managed with any step of perfumery
3) Not perfumatherapy. The smell of many blends are very unpleasant, strong, harsh or even unacceptable.
4) Not related to science and the art of perfumery
