Healing with Essential Oils – How Does It Work?
Essential Oils have been used for centuries and by many cultures and civilizations. They remain as popular in today’s modern society as they were in our ancient ancestors day and rather than be overtaken by allopathic medicine they seem to have been embraced including much clinical research testifying to their effectiveness.
Debra Fulghum Bruce PhD explains the scientific principles of healing with essential oils as:
Essential oils are highly concentrated substances extracted from a variety of different parts of a plant, including the flower, bark, roots, leaves, wood, resin, seeds, or the rind (in the case of citrus fruits). The oils contain healing vitamins, antibiotics, and antiseptics and represent the “life force” of the plant.
Scientists agree that essential oils may perform more than one function in living plants. In some cases they seem to be a part of the plant’s immune system. In other cases they may simply be end products of metabolism. Essential oils are said to be healing because they contain hundreds of organic constituents, including hormones, vitamins, and other natural elements that work on many levels. For example, essential oils can be sedative or stimulating. Some are antispasmodic, and most are antibacterial. Essential oils are 75 to 100 times more concentrated than the oils in dried herbs.
