Did you know that in Ancient Egypt, perfumed oil is already popular? The forerunner of essential oils, this oil is highly prized that only royalty and rich people can afford it. Often made from plants and herbs, a lot of this perfumed oils were also used as medicines. Today, essential oils is getting a lot of attention as more and more people are turning into more natural and holistic approach to health. From a lot of study, the use essential oils has become one of the safest and most effective forms of alternative medicine and the benefits reaped from it is far and wide.
Essential oils are organic, concentrated, highly volatile, hydrophobic liquids that naturally occur within and are secreted by tiny structures located in a plant’s various parts – the seeds, grasses, roots, barks, stems, leaves, fruits, flowers, resins, zest and wood of plants. They are also referred to as volatile oils, ethereal oils, or aetherolea.
Essential oils enter the body primarily in three ways – applied to the skin, inhaled, or ingested. Within each of these, there are many different kinds of application methods. For example, you can apply essential oils topically using compresses, sprays, baths, or massaging them into the skin.
Essential Oil works once the aroma enters the nose, the smell is converted by the cilia (the fine hair inside the nose lining) into electrical impulses that are transmitted through the brain through the olfactory system. The electrical impulses reach the limbic system, a part of the brain which is associated with our moods, emotions, memory, and learning.
