Chapter 1: Introduction to Essential Oils

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are concentrated hydrophobic liquids with volatile aroma compounds derived from plants. These oils are natural aromatic compounds taken from different parts of plants namely the bark, seeds, stems, flowers, and roots. These oils are also known as ethereal oils, volatile oils, and aetherolea.

The extracted oil is important because it carries both a unique scent as well as the essence of the plant. Essential oils can be both powerfully and beautifully fragrant, and in addition to their distinctive scent, these oils provide plants their needed protection against diseases and plant-eating animals. They also play a role in plants’ pollination.

Volatile aromatic compounds that are non-water based phytochemicals make up essential oils. These oils may be soluble to fat but they don’t include acids or fatty lipids found in animal or vegetable oils. They are clean, almost crisp, and are absorbent. Unadulterated and pure essential oils are translucent, and their colors vary from crystal clear to deep blue.

Essential Oils through Time

Essential oils are also a part of history. It was said that the Egyptians first used aromatic essential oils for beauty treatments, medical practice, food preparation, and religious ceremonies. They also traded oils such as sandalwood and frankincense in exchange for gold; the oils were considered as valuable cargo during those times.

Aside from the Egyptians, the Greeks also used essential oils. They used those oils for the practice of aromatherapy and therapeutic massage. The Romans used aromatic oils as well for personal hygiene and health purposes. Persians on the other hand started to use distillation methods to extract oils from aromatic plants. In Europe, oil extracts were utilized throughout the dark ages for fragrant and anti-bacterial properties.

Modern times have rediscovered the healing properties of essential oils through a French chemist named Rene-Maurice Gattefosse. What he did was to treat a badly burned hand using pure lavender oil.

During World War II, essential oils were also used to treat injured soldiers. The Bible even has 188 references to essential oils.

The use of essential oils continued to grow quickly as medical practitioners and health scientists research and validate the benefits that can be obtained from using therapeutic essential oils.

Characteristics of Essential Oils

Essential oils can be described in a lot of ways. Here are some characteristics and some points to ponder about essential oils:
Essential oils are organic substances that help the body approach equilibrium without having to cause harmful side effects. The essential oils to be used must be therapeutic grade, though, instead of the perfume grade ones, so that they won’t contain harmful chemicals.
Essential oils can easily penetrate the cellular and skin membranes. They are miniscule in size, and so they are absorbed well by the skin – that’s why they are perfect ingredients for certain personal care items. They don’t accumulate in the body, though; they just provide their healing properties, and then pass on through.
Essential oils are commonly used in cosmetics, soaps, perfumes, essences or massage oils. The oils have to be combined with a base or carrier oil such as sesame, almond, coconut, or olive oil to reduce its strength. Essential oils are so concentrated that they have to be diluted, or else they may cause an unfortunate allergic reaction to your skin.
Essential oils can last for at least five years. A bottle of essential oil could last a decade. The oils are so concentrated; you’ll only need a small amount for every application which makes them last a long time. However, citrus oils are not included here since their potency diminishes after a year or two.
Essential oils should be stored in dark glass bottles, and they should be placed out of direct sunlight. By doing so, you will help preserve the oils’ potency. Keep the oils out of children’s reach, and keep away from contact with your eyes.
If you’re sensitive or allergic to the food or to the plant, then you’ll also be sensitive or allergic to the oil. Hence, if you can’t eat sage without getting rashes and itchiness all over, then you might as well avoid the oil since it will cause the same effects.
An essential oil that is more expensive is not necessarily a better treatment. Even if it’s just a small price variation, it will not indicate better quality. A little tip: if you’re using the essential oils for non-therapeutic purposes, then it’s okay to use the less expensive ones. If you need the oils for therapeutic purposes, then it’s okay to spend a little more for higher quality.
Want to see how pure your essential oil is? Place a single drop on a sheet of construction paper. If the oil evaporates quickly without leaving any noticeable rings, then it’s pure. If it leaves a ring, then the manufacturer likely diluted it with a different oil of some sort (Keep in mind, though, that this test won’t work for oils such as patchouli, myrrh, and absolutes.).

Essential oils have always been held in high regard even by doctors and medical professionals to use in skin application, aromatherapy, and consumption. Research is still being conducted to reveal the other benefits and healing properties that essential oils offer.
Chapter 2: Benefits Gained from Essential Oils

Essential oils have always been recommended for aromatherapy and treatment purposes. They have always been noted as key ingredients even in cosmetic materials, and that fact has made them necessary tools for aesthetic purposes.

What makes these medical professionals and pharmaceutical developers recommend essential oils to everybody? What benefits can be obtained from these essential oils?

How would Essential Oils Benefit You?

Essential oils provide a wide range of benefits. As you have already read about in the preceding chapter, these oils have been used for wellness and medicinal purposes (among other purposes) for thousands of years.

Here are some reasons why essential oils can be good for you.
Most essential oils are high in antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Not only they are good for your body, they are also good for your environment. Eucalyptus, lemon, lavender, and rosemary are just some of the oils that can be added into your cleaning preparations.
According to studies, essential oils – rosemary in particular — can help your brain perform better. Rosemary, when smelled, can help memory recall and thus boost test scores. The same studies also show that people who inhaled either lavender or rosemary felt more relaxed than those people who didn’t smell the said oils.
Essential oils have oxygenating properties. They contain oxygen molecules that transport nutrients to oxygen-deprived cells. This helps the body immensely because not having enough oxygen could cause red blood cell deficiency, different diseases, and an environment where bacteria and viruses could thrive and reproduce.
Essential oils are also high in antioxidants. These antioxidants help in minimizing the risk of age-related conditions, preventing cell mutations, and eliminating free radicals.
Essential oils can help improve your mood. These oils can make you happy and joyous, and can calm you down in stressful situations. They can also help you sleep better, as well as energize you when you’re awake.

What can Essential Oils do for your Hair?

Essential oils are a great choice for your hair. They penetrate deeply into your scalp, nourish the hair follicles, and stimulate hair growth. They also inhibit hair loss by inhibiting the hormone that causes it.

Essential oils can make your hair healthier and shinier. They can also relieve conditions such as eczema, dandruff, or psoriasis without posing any dangers to your hair and scalp. Your irritated scalp can be soothed and your hair can be softened. The scalp can be stimulated and disinfected.

Aside from providing the aforementioned benefits for your hair, essential oils have no nasty toxins with unwelcome side effects.

Why are Essential Oils Good for Your Skin?

Why would you need essential oils for your skin? Simple: they do a lot for your skin. They reduce wrinkles, clear your complexion, and leave your skin looking and feeling healthy and beautiful.

In the past, people didn’t want any kind of oil touching their skin. Nowadays, however, things have changed. People who have discovered the wonders of essential oils can’t turn their backs on these oils anymore. These oils are moisturizing, soothing, and deliciously fragrant.

Don’t be left behind. See for yourself why essential oils are good for your skin and your body.
