I write a lot about how we use pure therapeutic essential oils, our successes, and how we have changed our perspective of total wellness and what health really means. It blows my mind, really it does. How can something like an essential oil do that? I always thought they smelled good but were a little “hippy-ish”, so I kind of just brushed them aside and kept along with my merry fast-food life or plugging in that Glade full of toxins.


By definition, essential oils are are the vital fluids of plants, (if you take your fingernail and scratch it across a leaf, the “juices” that are released are part of those vital fluids). These fluids are necessary for the life of the plant and contain life force, intelligence, and vibrational energy that gives them health-promoting properties that we can harness and use through distillation. Essential oils are composed of tiny molecules that can help support a state of balance at the most fundamental and basic level of our bodies.

Essential oils are highly complex easily absorbed aromatic liquids far more potent than dried herbs or herbal potions.

Usually steam distilled at low temperatures, from the flowers, roots, leaves, and seeds of plants, essential oils are not fat based, like vegetables oils such as olive, almond or walnut oils.

Essential oils are not greasy and will not clog pores. Unlike vegetable oils, genuine, therapeutic-grade essential oils do not become rancid over time when exposed to heat and high temperatures.

Due to their fragrance, they uplift mind, body and spirit, achieve balance and equanimity, combat negative emotions and create a calm, soothing atmosphere which aid in promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Essential oils have the ability to support healthy brain activity. We particularly love how essential oils maintain health memory, focus and behaviors.

How do oils Support the Brain?

Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels in the body, and the capillaries of the brain are different in that they do not freely allow just any substance to move in and out. The blood vessels in the rest of the body do. However, in the brain, the endothelial tissue (lining of the capillaries) fits tightly together to produce a safe zone for the brain to function.

The brain selectively moves particles in the blood to the brain through active transport.

Nature is a citizen of the body. Chemicals are not. Small hydrophobic, non-polar particles (oils) can easily support the brain. Once they hit the limbic system, the control center of the brain, they are able to affect behavior, emotions, and even change feelings. They are scientifically proven to have a dramatic effect on our bodies.

Due to the very small molecular size, essential oils are highly concentrated. The scents and compounds of essential oils, particularly those rich in sesquiterpenes, have the ability to support the brain which helps stimulate the amygdala (in the cerebral cortex of the brain), which controls the emotional and memory center of the brain. Several essential oils thus help facilitate the process of release of emotional trauma.

How they can help you

Okay, so let’s move beyond brain capillaries and talk practically. How might you benefit from essential oils?

For starters, they do not contain scary lists of chemicals. We just need to steer clear of toxins that wreak havoc on our systems and our long term wellness.

Essential oils can bring therapeutic change at the cellular level. Essential oils deal with the root and promote wellness in every single nook and cranny of the body.

The same is true for many other things such as skin, healthy digestive support, yummy support, endocrine system, mood, muscle soreness, sleep patterns and the list goes on for a very long time.

Let’s say you’ve heard enough to answer the what are essential oils question…what’s next? You need to decide where to get them, because quality is everything. We can help you with that.

Essential oils all work in harmony together and there really is no wrong oil, that have an intelligence that can never be replicated in a lab, and they know exactly where to go. That is the beauty of what God created for our benefit!
