NATURE’S ESSENTIAL OILS, PART TWO
Most of the research on essential oils, has been done by the flavor, fragrance, and perfume industries. These industries are concerned the volatile elements of an essential oil, especially lavender, jasmine, and rose. This is what sells the product. They are more interested in what the essential oils smell like than what they are.
The positive effect of essential oils on blood circulation is well-known. Increased blood flow improves the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and allows the efficient disposal of carbon dioxide and other waste products produced by cell metabolism. The immune system is improved by the general increase in movement, and blood viscosity is decreased. A good blood circulation is absolutely vital to good health as it affects the working of every organ of the body, including the brain.
Essential oils contain glucosides, which synthesize in the human body into glucose. This may explain why some essential oils are so energizing. Another factor in the efficacy of essential oils is their ability to reduce stress and tension, and contain well-known suppressors of oxygen supply.
Nature’s essential oils are composed of hundreds of compounds, which make them so very special. Essential oils and the human body react together as an integrated whole. It is vital trace elements like copper, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and more that maintain balance within the human organism.
Biochemical researchers must be encouraged to take seriously the challenge of identifying the trace compounds in nature’s essential oils, because until such time as all the components have been identified, we cannot fully answer the question, “What are essential oils?”.
We need to make the public aware, also, of the many benefits of essential oils!
