Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural smell and flavor, or “essence,” of their source. The therapeutic use of aromatic plants seems to be as old as human civilisation itself, used widely across the globe. Many ancient texts describe the various procedures and rituals involved in the making of healing ointments, medicated oils, poultices and healing perfumes. They are referenced in many old texts as being 'magical perfumes' that enhance personal attraction and promise happiness. 

Today essential oils are most commonly used in the practice of aromatherapy, in which they are inhaled through various methods.​

The chemicals in essential oils can interact with your body in several ways.

  1. When applied to your skin, some plant chemicals are absorbed

  2. Inhaling the aromas from essential oils can stimulate areas of your limbic system, which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviors, sense of smell, and long-term memory (Essential oils are not meant to be swallowed)

 

Essential oils can be inhaled or diluted and applied to the skin. They may stimulate your sense of smell or have medicinal effects when absorbed.
