Essential oils are liquid extracts distilled from plants such as flowers, trees, and aromatic herbs. They are very concentrated and it takes about one plant or more to produce one drop of oil. Their pleasant aromas are known to balance moods, lift spirits, get rid of negative emotions, and to create a romantic atmosphere.
Essential oils are not the same as perfume or fragrance oils. Where essential oils are derived from the true plants, perfume oils are artificially created fragrances or contain artificial substances and do not offer the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer.
The chemical composition and aroma of essential oils can provide valuable therapeutic benefits. These benefits are usually achieved through methods including inhalation and application of the diluted oil to the skin. Here are some reasons to try essential oils:
- The essential oils can act on both the mind and the body. The aroma can be stimulating both psychologically and physically. The aroma can also be very calming and sedating. Aromatic stimuli of the limbic system cause the release of neurotransmitters, including pain-reducing encephalin, pleasure-producing endorphins, relaxing serotonin, and stimulating noradrenaline.
- Essential oils may detoxify the cells and the blood in the body.
- Essential oils are anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-macrobial, anti-parasitic, anti-infectious, and antiseptic. They may combat infectious disease by killing off viruses, bacteria or other pathogens. Some oils have been shown to destroy all tested viruses and bacteria.
