With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine gave readers the facts about essential oils. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘These highly fragrances oils work well with the individual make-up of our bodies, adapting uniquely with the body’s chemistry. There are three elements that dictate how the body reacts to essential oils, which are pharmacological, physiological and psychological. Pharmacological effects happen when we allow the oils into the body through ingesting them, where they then react with the body’s hormones. The physiological aspects relate to the sedation or stimulation of the body and how they react to the oils. Lastly, psychological effects occur when the oils are inhaled. It is this element which is most familiar.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2012/12/the-facts-about-essential-oils/#sthash.UOBG57ur.dpuf)
Yourwellness Magazine explained that essential oils carry the active chemical elements of the plant itself. Essential oils have been used for centuries, as far back as the ancient Egyptians, and are popular for use in perfumes and remedies, as well as for spiritual purposes. Yourwellness Magazine commented that while natural remedies are still under research and study, the therapeutic benefits to essential oils have long been touted as an effective remedy to a wealth of illnesses and diseases, as well as being used for mental health problems such as depression. Yourwellness Magazine noted that many oils have important properties that make them useful for a range of treatments, such as antibacterial or anti-inflammatory properties. They are also lipophilic, meaning they can pass through the cell wall in the body and combat viruses and bacterial problems that antibiotics can’t reach.
