Are essential oils & fragrant oils the same thing?
No; fragrant oils are synthetic, and are therefore not natural. Essential oils are highly concentrated plant derivatives which possess potent medicinal qualities, both physically, and mentally. They are the quintessential spirit of the plants; captured into a bottle. Therapeutic grade essential oils are cultivated and dynamically cared for from the use of the purest seed source, through distillation, and proper distribution handling.
How are essential oils use aromatically?
Essential oils are used aromatically to stimulate the limbic system of the brain where memories are stored, and where pleasures and emotions are perceived. When stimulated, the limbic system releases chemicals that affect the central nervous system. These chemicals are released into the body and help to counteract anxiety, and release endorphins that assist with pain reduction. Balanced emotions have a therapeutic effect on many physical aliments. Inhalation of essential oils can help maintain emotional balance, which has a therapeutic effect on many physical ailments.
How are essential oils used on the body?
Essential oils are minuscule in molecular size and are absorbed well by the skin. The skin is largest organ of the body and is our protective layer from pollutants. Essential oils make fantastic ingredients for personal care items intended to heal, soften, and nourish. Lavender is especially suited to benefit the skin by cleansing, deodorizing, toning, and balancing. Because they are so concentrated many essential oils must be diluted by use of carrier oil before application directly to the skin. The use of essential oils adds an additional dimension to the healing effects of massage therapy, compresses, and steamed body treatments. Many essential oils have antibacterial and anti-microbial properties which help with healing the body through absorption and adsorption. Grapefruit added to a warm bath can help soak away a stressful day and assist with detox. Many aromatherapist blend essential oils to create synergies for overworked and fatigued muscles or for anti-inflammatory properties for joints.
