Through the study of the effectiveness of useful plants, men have employed nature’s healing powers that will assist to regenerate, restore and even revive the body to the Natural optimal state – as Nature intended.
The Roots of Western Herbology
One of the earliest herbalists to note the effects of useful plants and document them was Theophrastus (380-287 B.C), also hailed as the Father of Botany.
He created a massive book of herbal lore in Materia Medica. Being the first ever collection of the beneficial effects of useful herbs, and their preparation, this ancient text is still referred to by modern day herbalists.
Nature’s Beauty for Thicker, Fuller Hair
The documented use of herbology and aromatherapy for beautifying purposes dated as far back as biblical times.
When the Persian King Xerxes I was in the process of selecting his future queen, in accordance with royal tradition, the selected lady-candidates were granted a year of luxurious palace treatments. With the emphasis on the beauty of hair, spa-like treatments consisting of perfumed herbs like myrrh and majoram with essential oils of rose and jojoba catered to the head-turning locks for the ladies destined worthy of the seat of power – truly a beauty-queen.
Herbology: The Beauty of the Avalon and Beyond
Herbology experienced a phoenix revival in medieval times. With the increase of trade between empires and kingdoms, great access to different herbs once deemed too expensive for beauty aides were finally opened. Perfumed hair-oils made from the extract of Lavender and Roses were widespread not just for their charming scent, but also for their herbal benefits. Such paragons of beauty accompanied with the alluring smell of herbs surely were the main inspirations from Malory’s Genevieve, Shakespeare’s Juliet to Dante’s Beatrice.
