Ever wondered what essential oils are and how they work?

The aromatherapy industry has really stepped into the limelight in the last decade. Aromatherapy started as an introduction of the therapeutic usage of essential oils but has since evolved into the synthetic world of misinformation and adulteration of God’s oils for financial gain. It would be hard to find an aromatherapy- labeled product that did not contain adulterated oils. Pure essential oils are some of nature’s most powerful therapeutic substances available.

Most people today are unaware of the extensive documentation of the use of essential oils and their ancient history of healing and anointing. Many references about essential oils can be found and records show that at one time they were used to treat virtually every ailment known to man. Frankincense, myrrh, lotus, cedarwood, and sandalwood oils are some of the oils that were widely used in ancient Egyptian purification and embalming rituals. Oils like cinnamon, clove, and lemon were highly valued as antiseptics hundreds of years before the development of today’s laboratory-developed medicines.

With the advancement of over-the-counter and prescription drugs during the last century, the knowledge of natural therapeutic substances, especially essential oils, has been lost to the general public. Only two decades ago in the United States did essential oils begin to gain a place on the shelves in the health food stores and perfume shops.

Many researchers and health-care professionals have come to discover that there is a fascinating broad spectrum of therapeutic action in their healing potential . As we open the pages of history, we discover that in their pure state, essential oils are some of the most concentrated natural extracts known, exhibiting significant and immediate antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressive, antibacterial, and hormone-balancing effects as well as having calming, sedating, uplifting, and positive emotion-stimulating properties.

In clinical practice, essential oils have been shown to have a profound influence on the central nervous system, helping to reduce or eliminate pain and release muscle tension . The benefits of essential oils are numerous, and years of study are required to learn about the complexity of essential oil chemical constituents.
