How Essential Oils Work

The best way to enjoy essential oils is through an “aromatic lifestyle,” meaning daily use will amplify their benefits. Regular use of essential oils will encourage balance emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Two ways to easily incorporate essential oils into your daily routine are to use them aromatically and topically.

Inhaling the aroma of essential oils is not just pleasing to the senses, but it also has profound psychophysiological effects on the human body. When you inhale the aroma of an essential oil, odor molecules make their way to the limbic system. The limbic system is a complex set of structures that regulates the nervous and endocrine systems. Indeed, essential oils can influence sleep, libido, memory, learning, appetite, heart rate, blood pressure, stress levels, respiratory rate and even hormone balance through their effects on the limbic system.

When essential oils are applied to the skin, essential oils molecules penetrate through the skin and enter the bloodstream. From here they are rapidly circulated to the cells and tissues that need them the most. Each cell in the body is surrounded by a lipid membrane, which essential oils are attracted to and able to penetrate. Inside the cell, essential oils molecules influence cell function and behavior.
