Green Valley essential oils are high-quality, therapeutic grade and some of the best products we have found on the market. They raise your vibration, enhance health and well-being. They assist you in balancing the mind, body and spirit. These oils are naturally occurring substances found in different parts of plants – the blossom, fruit, leaf, stem, bark, wood or resin. Through a complicated and often expensive process of steam distillation or solvent extraction, these precious essential oils are captured and bottled. Aromatherapy is a gentle but powerful healing art that can positively affect physical, emotional and mental health.
HOW DO ESSENTIAL OILS ENTER THE BODY?
- Through our skin. Skin is the largest organ in the human body, and is accessible to essential oils because the molecular structure of the essential oils is so small they can enter through the skin and enter the blood steam. A modern application of this principal is used by many people today and is known as the patch. To quit smoking, or to raise estrogen levels in postmenopausal women, medication is introduced at a gentle and consistent level into the body through the skin. Massage is another way these oils are introduced into the body through the skin. Salves, creams, oils and perfumes are all vehicles of delivery via the skin. Allow about half an hour to be absorbed.
- Through smell. The olfactory system, (nose) sends the chemical message of the essential oils through the limbic part of our brain, which is the oldest part of our brain. Here the message is telegraphed to our central nervous system and to our glands, which control how our body functions. Methods to use here are in baths, diffusers, humidifiers, hot tubs, steams, perfumes, on a hanky, or pillow. Takes only seconds for the message to be received.
- Ingesting. In North America it is unlawful to suggest or recommend ingesting essential oils. It is not the best method, in any case, as they end up reacting with the other materials in the digestive tract, and are often of very little use to the client.
