Pythagoras and Aristotle, in addition to the four elements believed in the fifth element, called the Ether ether, meant the sky.


How to make essential oils

Many people came to work on finding this fifth element and tested various materials. In the meantime, some attention was drawn to the fantastic plants that had a very good smell and they sought to find the source of this odor. They believed that the fifth element is the same as the aromatic materials of the plants. The material was extracted from the early stages of the period and was oily and remained on the surface of the water. This issue continued for years.


In the sixteenth century, during the Renaissance, a Swiss physician and paramedicist named Paracelsus Paracelsus searched for this material and looked for a proper name. Because in English the fifth essence is called quintessence and in Latin quintessential, and it is referred to Essential Oils by the perception of the ancients that they were thought to be essential oils or the fifth element, and because of their supposedly oily nature, they referred to essential oils.
