Aromatherapy & Essential Oils
I’ve always said that if you breathe it, you might as well eat it. Anything that goes on your skin gets absorbed into the body via the bloodstream eventually reaching the cell. Aromatherapy is based upon the power of the essential oils from plants to enhance, heal, stimulate, and revitalize tissue.
These oils can be administered either by breathing, or absorbing them into the skin. The FDA does not recommend ingesting essential oils, but millions of people worldwide do ingest them. Make sure you are using a food-grade essential oil if you ever decide to use one internally.
Essential oils are extremely potent. They are said to be one of the strongest compounds of a plant. They have deep-reaching effects upon tissues, and when used wisely, the results are tremendously valuable. Try using essential oils as an adjunct to getting healthy. Different oils, like different herbs, will have specific effects on various organs or processes of the body. Below are just a few of the oils and their qualities we have to offer.
