FAQs - How essential oils work?
Essential oils can aid change our physical, mental as well as psychological well-being by activating and reinforcing our bodies' very own all-natural processes. They are composed of tiny particles that can provide healing properties to the systems that regulate our physical state.
The most effective method for the body to absorb the therapeutic and restorative components of essential oils is a combination of inhalation via the olfactory system of the nose and also absorption through the surface area of the skin: Inhalation and Topical application.
When essential oils are inhaled through the nose, tiny nerves send an immediate signal to the brain and go straight to work on the systems that moderate our minds and bodies, since the chemical messengers in the nasal cavity have direct access to the brain.
When essential oils are applied to the skin, their healing components are absorbed into the bloodstream by the pores and hair follicles. Once inside the bloodstream, they disperse to the specific organs and systems on which they work. Pulse points are the areas of the body where blood vessels are closest to the skin’s surface. Applying essential oils to these areas allows for quicker absorption and help them get to work faster. We suggest applying to the wrists, temples and back of the neck.
