Essential oils have skyrocketed in popularity over recent years, so much so that there now is an entire market for essential oils and can be used in various ways. Aromatherapists recommend oils should either be directly inhaled from a bottle, cloth or palm of the hand, or massaged into the skin after being diluted in a carrier oil, such as Jojoba oil or almond oil.
When you inhale essential oils it acts at the same pace as being injected with a substance in a needle. Essential oils tend to evaporate quickly when exposed to the air, this is the reason you always find yourself refilling your oil burner so many times in a day. When essential oils are rubbed into the skin they take longer for the body to absorb due to the oils having to pass through the fatty layers in the skin, and some oils remain in the fatty tissue.
Essential oils should never be used in place of medic
al advice, always check the ingredients and do not use if you are or think your allergic to it. Although Americans may think of aromatherapy as part of a spa or beauty treatment, medical aromatherapy is popular in Europe, where some physicians may prescribe and use the oils therapeutically as part of complementary medical care. There is certainly a promising amount of information in regards to the benefits of essential oils.
Essential oils tend to have less side effects in comparison to other chemicals used to treat a wide range of afflictions. Tea Tree oil for example helps with acne, while oils like lavender have a calming and therapeutic effect to help with anxiety and sleep problems. With so much medication on the market of which isn't getting any cheaper more and more people are turning to more holistic ways to cure and treat their ailments.
We are all different so there is no standard for the actual use of essential oils, while it may work for some not everyone is receptive or susceptible to the effect of essential oils and that's ok, proper and regular use can change that. Essential oils are more than just liquid incense they are physically
and mentally changing us every time they are being absorbed through our senses.
