Aromatherapy - How Does it Work?

Essential oils have a unique effect due to the complexity of their chemical structure. An individual essential oil could contain approximately 230 or more distinct volatile molecules. It is because of their diffusibility that they can be placed amongst the healing plant resources for all living beings. Essential oils are used as a 'whole' and pure plant essence, the appearance of side effects is greatly diminished and hence their correct use is relatively safe.

Due to the transdermal diffusion of essential oils they can be applied easily to the skin to gain beneficial effects. The recognised healing effect of essential oils is thought to be carried out mainly through tissue stimulation. This quality refers to the healing and regenerating action of certain essential oils. Essential oils have an analgesic neutralizing effect upon the chemicals carried by nerve endings in response to injury. This is generally felt as pain and the effect of neutralization leads to the absence of pain or discomfort.

The anti-inflammatory effect is achieved by the inhibition of the local inflammatory response and neutralization of chemical reactions caused by injury. Essential oils act directly on the brain centres, which have a regulating effect on the pituitary gland known as the hypophysis, through hormones with the rest of the endocrine system. Specific essential oils are able to regulate endocrine dysfunctions and immune disorders.

Essential Oils are able to re-establish harmony and balance or ground a person to achieve a state of equilibrium, in addition to restoring well-being through the body and mind connections.
