There is definitely credible science behind the benefits of essential oils, but you have to choose wisely, and we recommend that you consult a qualified aromatherapist.
As far back as A.D. 1000, healers used mechanical presses or steam to extract essential oils from fragrant plants.
When used on the skin, they are absorbed into the bloodstream. Diffused into the air, once inhaled, they bind to smell receptors and stimulate the central nervous system.
Essential oils, properly used, are safe and effective for many issues, but even though they’re natural products, they can do real damage if the wrong oils are used, if contraindications aren’t checked, if incorrect dilution ratios are used and if used with inappropriate applications.
It’s worthwhile seeking professional advice as we think essential oils are pretty amazing!
