What are essential oils?
Essential oils are aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Plants have been used for years as medicine and healing agents. The healing properties of these different plants can be found in the esential oil form of these natural medicines.
What is aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic technique of using essential oils through inhalation often through a diffuser. The benefits of essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin by diluting and applying them on your body and some are safe to ingest.
How does aromatherapy and plant medicine work?
The molecules in essential oils communicate and affect the cells of our bodies. They enter your system through small receptors in your nose or through the skin, enter blood vessels and get circulated throughout the body. They then communicate with your cells in different healing ways based on the properties of that plant. On an emotional level, essential oils have been shown to work by positively affecting the nervous system and the limbic system of the brain (center of emotions).
Essential oils have been researched and tested and have been shown to help improve states such as anxiety, low mood, stress levels and irritability. They have also been shown to help a variety of physical symptoms including digestion difficulties, pain and tension, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, and colds and immune response.
