How do essential oils work?

On the mind

Our sense of smell is the most primitive of our senses and has a direct link to our limbic system in the brain, which governs memory, emotion and instinct.

When we breathe in, the tiny molecules in the essential oil react with the nerve receptors in our nasal cavity, and travel through the olfactory system to the brain, which responds quickly to the aroma.

This powerful response can evoke a memory, an emotion or relive an event in an instant.

On the body

On a physical level, the molecules in the oils are absorbed by inhalation through the lungs into the bloodstream where they react in the body on a therapeutic level.

In massage, the highly concentrated essential oils are always diluted in base oil, e.g. sweet almond oil, which is then absorbed through the skin during the massage.

 

Using essential oils:

physical & emotional therapeutic benefits

   -Stimulating - relaxing - sedative - soothing
   -Antiseptic - anti-viral - anti-depressant
   -Anti-bacterial - energizing - de-congestion
   -Ease muscle cramps and tension
   -Boost the immune system
   -Increase/decrease in blood pressure

Where do the oils come from?

The essential oils are extracted from a large range of natural raw materials. Traditionally they are extracted by means of distillation.

They come from flowers (Rose and Jasmine), seeds (Cardamom and Carrot), leaves (Geranium and Eucalyptus), fruits (Bergamot and Juniper), rind (Lemon and Grapefruit), herbs (Thyme & Rosemary) roots (Vetiver and Ginger), woods (Sandalwood and Cedarwood) and resins (Frankincense and Myrrh).
 

Safety precautions when using essential oils

Essential oils are highly concentrated and only a few drops are needed to have a powerful effect.

Here are some basic safety guidelines to consider when using essential oils. If in any doubt at all, consult with your medical practitioner.
