Oils in History

In Ancient Egypt, essential oils were used in the embalming process and preserved oils were even found in jars in King Tut’s tomb. Egyptian temples recorded these blends and recipes using hieroglyphics. In the temples a sacred room was set aside for cleansing the flesh with a bath of essential oils.

Essential oils are the volatile, aromatic oils extracted from botanicals. Different parts of plants can be used to obtain essential oils, including the flowers, leaves, seeds, roots, stems, bark, and wood. The oil carries the distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant it is taken from. There are no additives in Zelda's Pure Essential Oils.

Perfume oils were discovered in Egyptian graves that date back to ancient times. The perfume oils were made by covering flowers in goose grease or other fats to bring fragrance to the oil. Elite Egyptian women used these body oils by scooping out a quantity and spreading it on themselves evenly. Scenes also show the wearing of cones of fragrant oils atop their wigs, releasing fragrance as the evening wore on.

Since these perfume oils were highly valued and very portable, they were often transported to the tombs of important people. The flowers for the perfumes came from areas like Faiyum, where they are still grown today. The earliest Egyptians moved toward the Nile as grass lands and forest dried out in climate change and brought the love of fragrance with them in migration.

 In the early graves, oils were kept in pottery jars, but later, stone jars and pots were made to contain the oils. In the Tomb of Tutankhamen, a comical lion-shaped perfume pot was among the boy king's treasures.

Perfume, as we know it, was not developed until Arabs developed a process of distillation in the seventh century. This allowed perfume oils and scented waters to be made. The French further developed perfume in the mid 1600's.
