Why Essential Oils?
The earliest evidence of essential oil use goes right back to 3000 – 2500 BC in Egypt.
Egyptians used aromatic extracts for beauty, culinary uses, also spiritual and physical wellbeing.
An essential oil is a compound extracted from a plant, The oils capture the plant’s scent and flavour, or “essence.”
Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.
Essential oils are obtained through a few different extraction methods, and the part of the plant we get the essential oil from can be different depending on the oil but is typically the most aromatic part. Rose oil, for example, comes from the petals of the rose, while citrus oils come from the rind."
There are over 90 essential oils which all have their own unique smell and health benefits
Inhaling the aromas from essential oils can stimulate areas of your limbic system, which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviours, sense of smell, and long-term memory
Interestingly, the limbic system is heavily involved in forming memories. This can partly explain why familiar smells can trigger memories or emotions
The limbic system also plays a role in controlling several unconscious physiological functions, such as breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. As such, some people claim that essential oils can exert a physical effect on your body.
