The Science of Essential Oils

Hold onto your fabulous hat, ladies! We're about to dive into the science of essential oils, and trust me, it's more fascinating than a steamy romance novel. Essential oils are like the secret superheroes of the plant world, ready to boost our health and make us feel unstoppable.

So, what exactly are essential oils? 

Well, they're the aromatic compounds that plants are kind enough to share with us. These aromatic compounds can be found in various parts of plants, like their flowers, roots, leaves, and stems. They're like little powerhouses of goodness waiting to be unleashed.

When I heard about them for the first time during studying alternative medicine techniques, I kind of 'smiled" about the approach of that person. Pheewwww... if I would have only listened already back then. Of course I knew about these good smelling liquids and I had used them in my little burner with some water in it and a candle underneath ... I made some serious wrong conclusions, had NO idea about quality and turned away.
But that changed at some point when a lady (and now good friend) shared with me step-by=step and gave me access to more information.

I was fascinated!!  and I started to look into the Essential Oil movement ... and still am. 

This was 2012 😊and since then I was able to help a lot of people to help themselves with the help of these aromatic energy bundles... they are kind of the missing link!

Now, the real magic of essential oils lies in their individual constituents. Yes, I used a big word, but bear with me. Constituents are basically the individual compounds and pieces that make up the essential oil. 

Think of them as the building blocks of awesomeness:

  • terpenes, 
  • monoterpenes
  • phenols 
These are just a few examples of these constituents. They sound like something a scientist would say, but trust me, they're pretty cool. These chemistry words describe the physical structure of each constituent, and it's this structure that gives essential oils their superpowers. ... if they are not altered or adulterated.

Essential oils have a predominantly ring-like structure that is lipid-soluble. Okay, I know that sounds a bit technical, but it's actually pretty cool. This means that essential oils can easily penetrate cell membranes and distribute their goodness throughout our bodies. Just with that knowledge YOU WANT HIGHEST QUALITY!

It's like they're tiny spies, infiltrating our cells and helping us from the inside out.

Our bodies are made up of cells, and these cells are surrounded by a lipid membrane. 

This membrane acts as a gatekeeper, only allowing the good stuff in. But sometimes, it can be a bit tricky for vitamins, minerals, and herbs to reach certain areas. This is where essential oils come in clutch. Their small size, ringed structure, and lipid-solubility make them the perfect natural solution. They can sneak past the gatekeeper and deliver their benefits right where we need them most.

There's more! Remember that smell-emotion connection I mentioned earlier? Well, it's time to talk about it.

Inhaling essential oils can actually have a powerful impact on our mood, emotions, and even our sleep. It's like a magical potion that can instantly transport us to a state of relaxation or energize us for the day ahead.

Now, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. What can we actually do with all this knowledge? Well, lady, the possibilities are endless. We can curate our very own toolbox of natural solutions tailored to our needs. From improving sleep to enhancing alertness, balancing hormones, supporting each body system - essential oils have got our backs.

For example, studies have shown that Rosemary can boost alertness and even combat candida. 
Orange and Lemon essential oils have demonstrated cleansing, uplifting effects, and Thyme can wash bacteria from produce. ... and so much more.

These aren't just empty claims, these studies can be found on PubMed, the holy grail of scientific evidence.

So, it's time to embrace the power of essential oils and harness their superpowers. Let's create our own personalized arsenal of natural solutions. In the world of essential oils, the possibilities are endless. It's time to unlock your inner scientist and embark on a journey of wellness and self-discovery. So grab your favorite essential oils, put on your sassy pants, and let's conquer the world together.
