How do essential oils help?

Aromatherapy is the practical use of pure essential oils. Essential oils have both an aromatic benefit from the plant but the oils also have such fantastic therapeutic properties that nature has given us to create some truly amazing products.

Apart from a great aroma and amazing sensory triggers, essential oils also have the ability to help restore balance.

Essential oils can come from many parts of plants such as roots, bark, flowers or seeds. Each essential oil has multiple properties, each has the ability to HYDRATE, DETOXINATE and OXYGENATE the skin, as a result essential oils are great to use and formulate into both skin and body care.

How do essential oils help? Essential oils consist of many naturally occurring chemical constituents referred to as the plants life force. They enhance homeostasis of our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels of well being.   

They enter our system through our nose, skin, mouth (to stomach) and lungs. Tiny essential oil particles are drawn into the nose. Then through our amazing, complex nervous system, messages are transmitted up to the limbic system of our brain where memory and emotions are controlled. Signals conveyed affect digestive, sexual and behavioral systems of body.

Scents have the ability to act as a trigger and can help people remember past experiences. Ever smelt baking and been reminded of a favorite past experience? Or maybe the scent of a Daphne bush or favorite rose reminds you of your grandmother?
 
aromatherapyOur brain registers aroma twice as fast as it does pain. This is why the inhalation of aromas can so powerfully transform our emotions. Smell is the only sense that bypasses the blood brain barrier to the central nervous system. This can be working when you are unaware or unconscious.   
 
Via our skin, particles enter our blood stream, reaching organs and tissues organs with time to absorb ranging from 20 minutes to several hours with the effects lasting up to several days. Likewise through our breath, then into our blood stream to be taken around body – eucalyptus inhalation is a well know example.

Effects are many. Oils may be relaxing, uplifting, an anti-depressant, bring about positive thinking and well being, relieve stress and anxiety to name a few. They can also increase circulation, lower or raise blood pressure, assist with lymphatic drainage, muscle tension or change appetite plus much more.

So back to my question – did the use of essential oils help? Firstly I made up a specific blend for mum in a hand cream including Melissa, Geranium and Roman Chamomile which I chose for their calming, harmonizing and soothing properties. The cream not only feeds her skin, but the therapeutic properties of the oils are absorbed into her bloodstream.  Next I offer mum a massage when I visit with an aromatherapy synergy blend. This helps to calm the nervous system, eases bodily aches and pains and importantly fills the space if conversation is not flowing. There is no need to talk, we are simply “being” and connecting. The therapeutic benefits of the oils are many and are helpful for me also as the journey of life continues to unfold for us both.  

This is generalized information only, please consult a qualified Aromatherapist for a personalize plan specific to your situation. Never stop taking your medication without first seeking medical advice.
 
NOTE: Some essential oils can interfere with medications such as St. John’s Wort or Grapefruit.
