Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark stem, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of freshly cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. Essential oils can lift the mood, calm the senses, and elicit powerful emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal.
Why are Essential Oils so Powerful?
Essential oils are composed of very small molecules that can penetrate your cells, and some compounds in essential oils can even cross the blood-brain barrier. They differ from fatty oils (like those in vegetables or nuts) that come from large molecules because they cannot penetrate your cells so they are not therapeutic in the same manner.
For instance, most vegetable oils will stay on your skin and may even clog your pores because they are not small enough to get into your system where essential oils will soak right into your skin.
Essential oils placed anywhere on the body are “transdermal” which means they can actually pass through your skin and into your circulatory system and cells.
