What Are Essential Oils?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, leaves, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats (such as bacteria, insect attacks, & decay) and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatments & cosmetics, and health-care practices....and are 50-7- times more powerful than herbs.
How Do I Use Essential Oils?
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:
Aromatic - Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.
Topical - Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.
Internal - Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.
Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.
That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity.
Essential Oils With Similar Beneficial Properties And Attributes Are Combined And Blended To Make A Synergy For An Enhanced Aroma, And Uses.
*I like to blend ginger, cinnamon, and clove with fractionated coconut oil for digestive support, and to aid in curbing a strong appetite.
*Another blend I enjoy is a few drops each of rosemary and ylang-ylang rubbed into my hair and scalp in the morning. I smell like I just left the ‘Spa’! I also love the shiny way my hair looks and feels.
History Of Essential Oils:
They have been used throughout history, although most notably in the last century or so. The last decade or two research and science backing have shown us greater and greater potential of their benefits, and expanded our awareness of how to use them safely and effectively, even through pregnancy, birth, and early childhood.
The human body is intelligent and that the essential oils (found in every- day food and drink) are no stranger to the human metabolism. We have evolved with plants and are adapted at metabolizing them. The body knows how to break them down and utilize them to balance the human physiology…As is evident, most oils are suitable for use during pregnancy; the real danger comes when the dosages are incorrect or irresponsible. Essential oils work with the body, not against it. The body always remains in control with proper dosage of oils.
Essential oils can have various properties and attributes. Their uses include:
