The use of good quality Essential oils truly can enhance human moods, if used properly profound results can be expected.
Many modern day drugs and antibiotics are derived from plant extracts, drugs such as everyday aspirin, penicillin, or powerful painkillers such as morphine. It is estimated that tens of thousands of plant species exist and are yet to be discovered in the more remote areas of the planet, hence one of the major concerns against the destruction of the world's tropical rainforests. Nobody can know what treasures lie undiscovered - such as possible cures for some of our most feared illnesses.
Essential oils come from nature - fruits, flowers, leaves, bark, wood, roots, spices and herbs. The orange tree for instance gives Orange oil from its fruit, Petitgrain from its leaves and Neroli from its flowers. All three with different fragrances and healing properties.
The oils work in two ways, the first of which is to do with the smell. When we smell something it has an immediate effect on our autonomic nervous system and our hormonal system. These systems govern fear, anger, heart rate, memory and reaction to stress. Our sense of smell has a powerful effect on us and how we feel, and yet is often overlooked.
The second way the oils work is by entering the system and bloodstream. Through the lungs in the case of inhalation or through the skin in the case of baths or massage. The oil travels through the body in the bloodstream and in the same way the body takes vitamins and minerals, those organs or glands in need of help will take the appropriate oil it is in need of.
You may find that many of the oils have similar properties. However Oils that you find attractive are more likely to work in harmony with your body. If for example, you find the smell of an oil unpleasant, you might be best advised to use an alternative, which has similar properties. Strangely, we are often "drawn" to the aroma of the essential oil that our body requires at that time.
And finally, although the majority of people tolerate essential oils if used in the correct amounts, you should use the minimum dosage when trying new oils to test for sensitivity, and remember "less is more" when using essential oils.
How to use Essential Oils
The valuable therapeutic properties of essential oils are used in many ways. Massage, inhalation, added to bath, compress, oil burners and diffusers. However The most effective way of using essential oils is in massage.
To make a massage oil, add 10-15 drops of essential oil into 25ml of Carrier oil, i.e. sweet almond or grapeseed oil.
The oils can be used in the bath to relax in, Add up to a total of 8 drops just before you get in, swish the water around to ensure complete dispersion, close the door and blissfully soak in the oils for at least 10 minutes (take care that the oils do not go in your eyes).
They can be used as an inhalant put 3-6 drops of essential oil to a steaming bowl of water, place a towel over your head and lean over the bowl allowing the water vapour to carry the oil to your nose. Remain like this, inhaling deeply, for several minutes. Alternatively add 1-2 drops of essential oil to a handkerchief, hold to your nose and inhale.
And finally as a compresses, Add 5-6 drops of essential oil to a small bowl of warm water. Next, place a piece of cotton cloth or lint on the surface of the water, allowing it to soak in the liquid for a few minutes, wring out, then apply to the part of the body needing treatment. Compresses are normally placed on the neck, forehead, arms or legs.
We try to source as many of our oils as possible from organic sources. Due to the availability of some oils this may change from time to time. Please contact us if you would like further information on any oils shown.
It is important to be careful when using oils as the term 'aromatherapy'-just like the term 'natural'-is unregulated. That means there are no legal guidelines with respect to the substances used in aromatherapy products. Thus, it is legal for companies to use synthetic fragrances under the guise of aromatherapy. Synthetic fragrances are considerably less expensive than pure essential oils, and can be created year-round, while the supply of essential oils may depend on season and availability. Research has linked synthetic fragrances to adverse effects such as headaches, dizziness, allergies and skin irritations.
