The Best Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils In The World
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oil is that aromatic volatile liquid that are extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed or root of a plant or tree, and just one drop can have powerful health benefits.
They are typically created through the process of distillation, which separates the oil and water-based compounds of a plant by steaming. Essential oils are highly concentrated oils that have a strong aroma. By concentrating the oils of these plants, you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil. These therapeutic oils in plants protect the plant from insects, shield the plant from a harsh environment and help them adapt to their surroundings. By taking essential oils, you are harnessing the protective and healing powers of a plant.
Essential oils are composed of very small molecules that can penetrate your cells, and some compounds in essential oils can even cross the blood-brain barrier. They differ from fatty oils (like those in vegetables or nuts) that come from large molecules because they cannot penetrate your cells, so they are not therapeutic in the same manner.
For over 5,000 years, many different cultures have used these healing plant oils for a variety of health conditions. They are often used for relaxation; beauty care, home cleaning and most often used as natural medicine. Aromatherapy has a variety of health benefits and can be used in various settings. It is a great non-invasive way to treat a variety of medical conditions and can be used safely in combination with many other therapies.
Many traditional hospitals like Vanderbilt University Hospital are catching on to the benefits of essential oils and are using them in the treatment of anxiety, depression and infections in hospitalized patients.
Essential oils can also have antibacterial or anti-fungal benefits used in medical settings. Many oils when massaged on the skin can heal or help treat skin conditions, such as burns or cuts and scrapes. Others may help boost the immune system, help with insomnia and aid with digestion. Essential oils are even being used to help fight cancer; there is a plentiful amount of research on the correlation between frankincense oil and reduced brain tumors.
