Essential oils are extractions created from many parts of a plant, tree or shrub which can include and vary from the flower, leaf, resin, bark, root, twig, seed, berry, rind and rhizome. Essential oils can enter the body through the nose (inhalation) and the skin (applied externally)

When you inhale essential oils, the aroma is lead directly through our brain and respiratory system through the olfactory nerve cells in our nose. The molecules of essential oils attach themselves to the oxygen molecules in our lungs which are circulated throughout every cell in our bodies. When the molecules of essential oil are dispersed, the body will activate its ability to improve health and heal itself. Essential oils have been proven to have incredible medicinal properties that can strengthen the self-healing processes by indirect stimulation of the immune system

Essential oils create a sense of emotional wellbeing through the mind, body and spirit

The four modes of interaction essential oils have with the human body include:

Pharmacological – effects of chemical changes which take place when an essential oil enters the blood stream and reacts with hormones and enzymes

Physiological – affects the systems of the body resulting in sedation or stimulated

Psychological – an individual’s response to the inhalation of the essential oil

Holistic – the human body’s total response to an essential oil which may or may not include some or all of four modes

It is highly recommend to keep your essential oil blends in a cool, dry space away from bright light as essential oils will polymerise if left in bright light
