What are Essential Oils
Essential oils are sourced from various plants around the world. The immune system of a plant is represented by its aromatic compounds, which will help the plant repel pests or environmental predators (such as mould) and attract beneficial insects for reproduction. Through cold pressing or steam distillation, these aromatic compounds are extracted into a highly concentrated and potent form. For example, it takes over 1 lb of peppermint leaves to make 1 tbsp of peppermint essential oil. Through this potency, essential oils can be 50-70 times more powerful than herbs. Essential oils can be a powerful tool to address a wide variety of physical, mental/emotional, acute or chronic health concerns.
How do Essential Oils Work?
Via the olfactory nerve system (our nose), essential oils reach our brain almost instantly. The molecular structure of the essential oils are so tiny that they readily pass through the skin into our bloodstream and circulate within about 30 seconds. Essential oils are also able to penetrate inside our cells, and so they can fight harmful pathogens and boost our immune system both inside and outside our cells. Essential oils in their purest form can also be taken internally for certain health concerns.
Essential Oils are a safe, effective and affordable Option
Pure essential oils can be safely and effectively used on people of all ages, either aromatically (i.e. inhaling/diffusing), topically (applying to skin) or internally (in water, under tongue or in a capsule). Because of their potency, only 1-2 drops are needed per dose, making a bottle of essential oil very affordable and long lasting. Personally and professionally I have seen the amazing results and benefits of using these essential oils in all aspects of people’s lives, from managing health concerns to protection from environmental concerns, as safe and effective options for cleaning products, and healthful additions to cooking and baking, just to name a few.
