What are Essential Oils

 

An essential oil is a highly aromatic, concentrated oil that is distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, needles, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other highly aromatic plant parts.

Essential oils therapy is a scientifically verifiable healing modality that is accessible to everyone. It's a natural way to maintain a daily well-being. Many essential oils are effective against harmful organisms. Some can positively affect your mood and mental state, others have anti-inflammatory effects and help alleviate stiff, sore muscles and joints.

Definition

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) defines an essential oil as a product made by distillation with either water or steam or by mechanical processing of citrus rinds or by dry distillation of natural materials. Following the distillation, the essential oil is physically separated from the water phase.


Effects

According to the aromatherapists the effects of the essential oils can be multiple either:-

  • Physically, by their pharmacological effects on the systems of the body once absorbed.
  • Emotionally, by their effect on the brain via their interaction with the olfactory system.
  • Energetically (or spiritually) via their vibrational interaction with the energy flows within the body.

Dilution

Essential oil dilution is important for two safety reasons. One, to avoid skin reactions: irritation, sensitization and phototoxicity. Two, to avoid systemic toxicity, such as fetotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, carcinogenicity and neurotoxicity.
