What is an Essential Oil?
Essential oils are organic compounds found in nature. These compounds help our bodies defend against threats and impurities similar to how they work for plants.
Here is a great video from Doterra explaining what is an essential oil.
How do Essential oils work?
There are 3 ways to use essential oils - topically, aromatically and internally. Here are examples of each:
- Topically - Placing the oil directly on your skin or with a carrier oil (like massage lotion, fractionated coconut oil or any oil)
- Aromatically - Using a diffuser in your house or putting a drop of oil on your hand and breathing it in
- Internally - Putting a drop of oil in your water and then drinking it or adding drop of oil to a capsule and swallowing it.
Do they really work? This is a question we answer often. Without trying to delve too deep into chemistry, here is a very simplistic explanation on how they work with the body. Once an essential oil is put on your skin or taken internally, the body absorbs it through the bloodstream. As that happens, the oil starts to work with your body’s cells and chemistry thereby helping your cells thwart impurities to your body.
How do I know what to use?
There are many essential oils and a lot of information available on essential oils. The beginning of your essential oils journey can be overwhelming. Since everybody’s body chemistry is slightly different, sometimes it takes a little time to figure out which oil works best with your body.
The good news is you have a built in support system with Rebalance Massage. We are big on educating our clients on how to use essential oils and being a resource for you. Feel free to send us a message and ask us what could work for you!
