What might these essential oils have in store for you?
The sense of smell can create powerful physiologic, mental, and emotional responses. Essential oils are quickly absorbed by the limbic system by way of the olfactory nerve. The limbic system is part of the brain that supports a variety of functions including smell, emotions, behavior, and memory. For this reason, essential oils have an especially powerful effect via aromatic application.
Essential oils can be used as dietary supplements for more targeted and potent health benefits. Internal use is a safe and effective method because of the sophisticated physiologic processes of our bodies.
When ingested, they directly enter the blood stream via the gastrointestinal tract, where they are transported to all organs of the body, including the brain. Then, like all things we consume, essential oils are metabolized by the liver and other organs and are then excreted.
Topical application, once absorbed, stays in the applied area for a localized benefit.
To increase absorption, use a carrier oil and light massage which will stimulate the blood flow to the area. Applying several small doses throughout the day is better to achieve optimal results.
Steam inhalation is an effective method to assist in respiratory ailments. Add a few drops of your favorite oil to boiling water and cover your head and inhale for 10-15 minutes. If you have a cold, a persistent cough or a sinus infection, steam inhalations can be done several times a day.
