The Science Behind the Power of Essential Oils


Women.I’ll start by throwing a little science at you!

Essential Oils are made up of molecules that stimulate tiny nerves that send an immediate signal to the Amygdala, which is the brains emotion centre and due to the small size of the molecules they are also easily absorbed by the skin. 

Essential oils have benefits that are up to 100 times more powerful than their dried herb counterparts because of their concentrated property.

There are 3 distinct ways to use the oils; by inhaling through the nose, absorbing through the skin, or ingesting, however only particular oils and only the best quality, therapeutic grade essential oils, can be used this way safely. Tests have shown oils reach the heart, liver & thyroid in 3 seconds when inhaled and they were found in the bloodstream in 26 seconds when applied topically. Essential oils can help support and maintain optimal health when used correctly. They can altar our physical, mental and emotional well being, creating more harmony as we negotiate life’s ups and downs.

One of the beautiful things about taking charge of your own health and well being, is in trusting your own intuition more, it is a powerful way to get more in touch with your feminine nature. Over the next while, I will be sharing products with you, along with guidelines on how to use essential oils effectively, however, when using anything on, or in, your body, you must take full responsibility for how you decide to use it, due diligence is paramount when using any product in such an intimate way. Please also know, that Young Living Essential Oils are the only company that I know of, that have Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ), approval on 33 essential oils for culinary use. So please don’t just go buying any oil off the shelf and using it internally, you must only use essential oils that have been approved and have a rigorous testing system!
