Essential oils are mainly produced from aromatic plants.

Distillation is the most common method used to pick up essential oil from plants. The essential oil usually carries the name of the plant species from which it has emerged, e.g. Vegetable oil.

They are mixtures of substances that evaporate very easily and are also volatile. Due to their volatility they have a characteristic aroma.

The essential oils are in liquid form at ambient temperature but are volatile at boiling temperatures (between 50 ° C and 320 ° C). Most essential oils are almost colorless.

From a chemical point of view they may belong to different classes of compounds, such as alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, phenols and esters.

 

Aromatic plants primarily concentrate essential oils on specific cells on leaves, stems, flowers, bark, wood, and even roots, which act as natural storage spaces for the plant and are called oleaginous glands. Essential oils owe the various plants their aromatic and medicinal properties.

 

Essential oils are often used in perfumery and aromatherapy while floral floral has many applications in aromatherapy, food processing and skin care. Essential oils are ideal for balance between body and spirit.


Aromatherapy is based on essential oils that are either inhaled or mixed in massage base oils or used for baths.

Oil perfumes stimulate nerves in the nose that send waves to the brain area that controls memory and emotion. Depending on the essential oil, the effect on the body may be either relaxing or tonic.

 

Natural essential oils extracted from flowers, herbs and trees are characterized as "ethereal life". Research has shown that the pulse rate of the rose essential oil is 320 Hz while that of a healthy body between 68 and 70 Hz.

Many studies have been made to try to investigate the effect of essential oils on the human brain. The rhythm falls and calm comes when we inhale an essential oil with relaxing properties while the opposite happens when we inhale an essential oil that stimulates the body.

Our mind, through the aromatic route, can play a very important role in the body's taxonomy either by stimulating or by suppressing it.

 

Some of their main therapeutic properties are:

  • Analgesic, antiinflammatory, antitoxic, hyperimmune
  • Antiseptic,
  • Deodorizing
  • Exciting
  • Insecticides, repellents
  • Herbs
  • Spasmolytic, digestive, diuretic
  • Relaxing, antidepressant

Useful tips

* For the safe use of essential oils in our skin, it is necessary to dissolve the essential oil in a base oil, such as almond oil or chocolate oil, which leaves no oiliness on the skin.

* Another way to use essential oils is to diffuse in space using an essential oil evaporator.

* Do not exaggerate the amount of essential oils you will use as their aroma is intense and do not mix more than three different essential oils unless you follow a specific recipe.

* Finally, special care is also needed to choose naturally-organic essential oils from certified plant cultures, as essential oils are highly caustic and can cause more severe skin problems and burns when they are dubious in origin.
