An essential oil is a non-oily natural extract of an aromatic plant most commonly obtained by distillation. They are called oils because of their chemical composition, which means that they do not mix with water. They are volatile, non-greasy, and evaporate without a trace.
Each essential oil is made up of many hundreds of chemical components which give the oil its color, consistency, aroma and therapeutic properties.
For any medicine to work it has to get into the body. Essential oils do this by the inhalation of the aroma through the nose or by the absorption of the oil through the skin.
The human sense of smell is called olfaction. Olfactory nerve cells are the only ones which are capable of regeneration which indicates the importance of the sense of smell.
The olfactory nerve runs from the nose to the limbic system, the home of our memory and emotions. That is why “aromas” trigger sensations and emotions. They also trigger a hormonal cascade of signals to the different parts of the body creating powerful responses. Our body is working for us to restore balance.
When applied topically on the skin the essential oils enter the epidermis, then into the capillaries and finally reaching the bloodstream and lymphatic systems. In 20 mins it is in every cell of the body.
