There is so much evidence and so many studies about the power of aromatherapy and our health. There is evidence that essential oils can cross the blood brain barrier. This barrier is there for our safety, preventing damaging substances to enter our brain and cerebral fluid.
The good news is that in 1994 the Medical University of Berlin documented that sesquiterpenes have the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier.
There are oils like frankincense and sandalwood that have many of these sesquiterpenes and they increase the amount of oxygen in the limbic system. When there is more oxygen around the pituitary gland you get an increase in antibodies, endorphins and neurotransmitters.
Fragrance also stimulates the amygdala whose job it is to store and release emotional trauma.
Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from
cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use.
Young Living oils are the oils I use for a number of reasons, the most important one is because I believe they are very pure. Many oils have additives in them that would act like toxins. According to the law you only need 5% essential oils in the bottle of oils you sell even for therapeutic oils. Gary Young has been been diligent about keeping the oils pure from the seeds used through the distillation process.
Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanical's from which they come. Here are a few of my favorites that come with a starter kit along with a diffuser.
