How Do Essential Oils Work?

The molecules of essential oils are very small and, once added to a carrier oil and applied to the skin, pass easily into the body through the fatty tissue. Alternatively they can be inhaled through evaporation and enter the body via cells lining the nasal passages. The essential oil molecules then send messages directly to the brain and can assist both the physical and psychological wellbeing. Each essential oil has it’s own unique chemical composition and it’s own collection of beneficial properties.
