Oil Drop 2: How do essential oils work?

Hi everyone!!! After reading Oil Drop Number 1, I know that you are an expert on what essential oils are!  So here, let’s talk about how they work! Here are some great facts and an analogy to bring it all together! Here we go:

*Essential Oils are SO small that they can quickly pass through the tissues of the skin.

* ONE DROP of EO contains enough molecules to cover every cell in your body with 40,000 molecules!

*AND essential oils are lipid soluble so they can even pass through those 40,000 cell’s walls! That’s right! Antibiotics can’t even do that!

*Remember all the properties that each constituent brings to an essential oil? Those get to work right in the cells! Killing bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses, infections, microbes, and even mutated cancer cells! Breaking up mucous in the chest, decreasing acid in the stomach, relieving pain at the site, clearing that rash on contact! The list is ever long…

*Those oils high in sesquiterpenes (you know this now!) can even pass through the blood brain barrier. We’re talking help for awful things like Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson’s, and Dementia!

*Essential Oils don’t have to work just in the body either, OOOHH NO! They work right in the air around you! Removing toxins before you even breathe them in, inhibiting bacterial growth in your environment, destroying odors, increasing available oxygen, and smelling OH SO GOOD!

***Consider this analogy from our boy infested Lego-loving home:

Essential oils do NOT cure, and don’t claim to. They DO support your body’s natural processes. Ok, so Parker just got a new Lego castle set called “Kick this Congestion.” The kit came with all the pieces, but Parker’s own body will do all of the building of this set. To build the “Kick this Congestion” castle, Parker will need 5 square blocks. His kit shorted him two of those blocks and he is hating life!! Really, really suffering! Luckily for Parker, he knows that by putting essential oils like Peppermint, Lemon, Lavender, and Thieves into his diffuser he will receive the anti-inflammatory and decongestant blocks he needs to complete his “Kick this Congestion” castle.  Now everyone is happy again! 🙂

Great! And now that you know how essential oils work in the body, you can probably guess where we’re going next: The importance of using an essential oil that is pure, unadulterated, and of the highest quality possible. I mean, these things are coating and entering every cell in your body. That, plus you are trusting the oils to do a pretty important job for you.  In Oil Drop Number 3 we will wade through all the marketing shenanigans in the EO industry and figure out how we know we’re getting the best essential oil there is.

Have a Happy and Blessed Day!!!
