Essential Oils: Balancing, Relaxing or Stimulating Properties

The usage of essential oils dates back to as early as 4500 BC. Aromatherapy essential oils are very healing with proven therapeutic actions.  They also smell pleasant with environmental fragrancing benefits.  They can be used at home in Aromatherapy diffusers and vaporisers or topically with base creams, gels and vegetable oils etc. or in baths with Solubilizer etc.

True Aromatherapy essential oils are balancing, relaxing or stimulating with therapeutic properties and trigger positive or negative memories and emotions unique to each person. The time of day, environment, mood, as well choosing an essential oil that they resonate with the scent of will need to be taken into account.

Aromas go through our olfactory system into our limbic system within the brain which deals with emotions, memories and stimulation.  Aromas can trigger memories and emotions associated with them. 

Holistic health works on healing and balancing the mind, body and spirt to be in harmony with each other.  Aromatherapy is able to do this through the skin or inhalation methods where essential oils circulate through the bloodstream to all the cells in the body.

Aromatherapy essential oils are pure plant based extracts used in Aromatherapy skincare products and diffusers etc. whereas fragrance oils are usually part synthetically made, an aromatic chemical compound that has no healing properties and are primarily used for scenting goods in a lot of skincare products, cosmetics, perfumes, candles and soap etc. A lot of essential oils are marketed as pure when they are actually fragrance oils instead.

Essential oils are highly concentrated and volatile and must be stored upright, well-sealed in dark glass bottle, not plastic and out of the reach of children.  Electromagnetic radiation, air, moisture, exposure to heat above 50 Degrees C, and sunlight will affect the oils with loss of potency.
