Essential oils are not oils in the traditional sense of the word. In simple terms they are very small amounts of scented oils that are extracted from your favorite fruits, flowers and veggies. Because of this, essential oils often have a much stronger smell than the plants they come from and contain higher levels of active ingredients. These oils are very concentrated and contain no fatty acids which means by themselves they are nearly useless and not suitable for use on the body alone.
Giving that there are completely natural and nontoxic plant-based compounds that are proven to have medicinal powers. We use essential oils to provide clean, clear, beautiful skin for short and long-term use; without negative effects on your health or your skin!
Essential oils have been around so long that they are mentioned in the Bible. Anyone remember what the wise men brought Mary when Jesus was born? Frankincense and Myrrh were used in ancient times to reduce pain and promote healing. (Matthew 2:11) Back in those days they didn't have medicine like we have today and they had to rely on the earths natural ingredients for healing. In todays world, essential oils are distilled much more efficiently and in turn are much stronger than they were in those times.
We use Essential oils for two reasons: fragrance and their therapeutic properties.
Our skin plays an extremely important role in maintaining health and wellness; it is one that we take for granted. Skin is a semipermeable barrier which completely covers our body and is a living, breathing organ. Remember, it is the largest organ we have. It serves to protect us from the everyday environment where potentially harmful microbes like chemicals, radiation, UV rays, weather and temperatures can harm us.
Essential oils have triple the action!
First, they have healing action when applied:
- They help provide health and wellness and improve the general/overall function of our bodies.
- Regenerate healthy skin cells quickly and efficiently.
- Enhance the barrier repair and protection functions, enabling it to more easily heal and repair itself.
- Fight infections and kill potentially harmful microbes, stopping the spread of infection.
- Tighten and tone the skin tissue, bringing greater strength and elasticity.
- Stimulate local blood circulation, which encourages a glowing complexion.
- Fight free radicals and delay the signs of premature aging
- Soften and smooth, cleanse and clean, hydrate and moisturize, which improves the skin’s overall health and wellness.
Secondly, they help the body to heal from the inside out because the molecules of essential oils are small enough to penetrate the semipermeable layers of the skin. They are then used by the skin cells themselves, or they pass through into the bloodstream where they are transported around our body to help maintain healthy functioning organs. When absorbed, the chemicals of the essential oils mix with the chemicals of our body to balance, regulate and improve our overall health.
And finally, the aroma they provide improves our mood, lifts our spirits and encourages a greater sense of wellbeing, giving us wonderful holistic healing powers where ‘healing the whole person’ is considered.
Again, essential oils are not a substitute for conventional medical treatment and where symptoms exist and persist, a doctor must be consulted. They do, however, complement conventional treatment extremely well and are used to great effect to maintain and improve your health from the inside out.
Essential Everything is committed to use organic all-natural oils and essential oils to produce a cream/lotion that ensure a better potency and absorption through the skin’s lipid barrier to benefit the cells themselves that will nourish and nurture our skin to healthy glow for great holistic results!
