05 May How are essential oils absorbed into our body?
Essential oils easily penetrate into the body by all methods of application including topical, aromatic, and internal use. Whichever application method you choose or if you choose to use all three, the essential oils will be very effective.
Aromatically, essential oils are absorbed by our olfactory bulb and receptors which are taken directly to the limbic system. Topically, essential oils are quickly absorbed into the lymph system and internally, the essential oils are also absorbed into the lymph and other systems of the body. There are numerous research studies published today on the use of essential oils. A great resource for you is www.aromaticscience.com
