Essential oils and the effect on our mind and body
Essential oils are essences obtained from plants, parts of plants or flowers, from nuts (oranges, lemons, mandarins, etc.) or from resins (incense).
We understand them as the "soul" of plants.
There is much to read and even more to know about the application and mode of action of essential oils.
This is also justified, because essential oils have numerous and unique properties that result in their modes of action and various applications.
At this point we would like to give you an impression of how essential oils basically work.
The wonderful thing about essential oils is that they act directly on our brain and thus on its control mechanisms. They regulate physical and psychological processes. The essences penetrate our body via the mucous membranes and the skin and thus reach the bloodstream via the connective tissue and lymphatic system.
The most direct and immediate way is to smell/breathe in essential oils.
They reach the organs assigned to them via the nasal mucous membrane and the skin and are excreted again via the kidneys and lungs. When used correctly, they also support our skin with its numerous functions through contact with our skin.
