The chemical structure of essential oils is very complex but I will be brief and to the point.
Most oils contain an average of 150 chemical constituents, Rose contains a whopping 300, it is these constituents that work individually and synergistically to have positive effects on our mind, body and soul.
The molecules in essential oils are so tiny that they weigh less than 5oo in molecular weight.
Much like fingerprints each aromatic molecule is unique.
Our skin is the largest organ of the human body and yes it breathes! This large area, with overlapping skin cells, provides a perfect platform for essential oils to slip through and enter our bloodstream.
Absorbing oils through the skin enables them to go directly to the spot where you need them to work their healing magic. Rub an oil over a tight or sore muscle and the oil will penetrate right into the underlying area relieving pain, preventing bruises or easing cramps.
The remnants of any oils are processed by the kidneys and liver and passed out of your system after 12 hours.
