It will not have escaped your attention that there has been a huge resurgence in the popularity of essential oils in fact I think everyone has purchased at least one in the last year. But do you know actually know the extent of the benefits of these amazing oils?

Actually the benefits of essential oils are far too numerous to mention in one article such as this. However, putting it into layman’s terms, essential oils are the life force of the plant. They are the part of the plant that protects it from environmental elements including weather, insects, fungus and disease. By using these very oils their protection also works on us. Essential oils can be truly powerful allies in creating and maintaining a vibrant, healthy life.

1 Essential oils have a very small molecular structure which means they are extremely concentrated. A single drop of essential oil contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules. Since we have 100 trillion cells in our bodies, one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 40,000 molecules. Since essential oils molecular structure is so small they penetrate the skin and act on the internal organs of the body, this means that if you apply an essential oil to your skin, literally in 20 minutes they will have penetrated every cell within the body.

2 A single drop of essential oil can have hundreds of different chemical constituents all working synergistically together to provide just as many therapeutic benefits.

3 Because of the many chemo types found in essential oils, essential oils can address many illnesses, injuries and disease conditions.

4 Essential oils have the capacity to change the electrical frequency of the body. The electrical frequency of essential oils range between 52 and 320 Hz. They have the highest frequency of any substance known to man, therefore by applying essential oils it may increase the electrical frequency of the body. There is some evidence that the higher the frequency of the human body, the better the health.

5Essential oils can protect us from air-borne microorganisms. Diffusers are very popular these days and adding a few drops of essential oils to your diffuser means that you are blowing them into the air you breathe. The aroma not only provides physical, mental and emotional benefit, but you are also killing air borne microorganisms.  This has proven to be so effective that it seems many hospitals are now diffusing essential oils, not only to reduce stress, improve performance, but also to protect patients and workers alike from harmful air borne bacteria and viruses.
