The Science behind using Essential Oils for Immune Health

Each bottle of essential oil contains a unique blend of chemical constituents. These compounds are volatile and organic, meaning they quickly evaporate and their chemical structures are primarily composed of carbon atoms. Constituents can produce powerful effects through their interaction with cellular targets. Some constituents can attach to receptors located on the outside of a cell to influence changes within it, while others can readily pass through the cellular membrane and bind to enzymes, proteins, and even DNA. Understanding how essential oils induce beneficial effects through chemical interactions can lead to a renewed sense of confidence in their use and inspire new opportunities for application in daily life.

Everything is chemistry. Every cell, organ, and tissue in the body performs its function using enzymes, receptors, and other proteins, which work together to break down, build up, and rearrange the chemical bonds in biological molecules. Essential oils also operate under the principles of chemistry. The unique chemical makeup of each essential oil is what gives them the ability to affect the body's systems. Molecules in essential oils can selectively support the function of subcellular structures that run the processes that keep us alive. By understanding the fundamentals of oil chemistry, you can begin to classify oils by their chemical properties. This will help you learn which oils might have applications in different daily life context and how they work.

Safety Tips & Guidelines 

As with anything new, take necessary precautions to avoid unwanted results. 

  • Avoid applying oils to sensitive areas like the nose, ears, eyes, or broken skin. Avoid using "hot oils" on the face.* 
  • Always read labels and package instructions before using an essential oil for the first time. 
  • Use dilution to minimize skin sensitivity, especially when using "hot oils".
  • Be aware of oils topically with sun sensitivity warnings.
  • Practice safe storage/keep oils out of reach of children.
  • Always supervise young children when applying essential oils.
  • If you have specific health concerns, talk to a healthcare professional before trying essential oils.

How to use EO's for your Immune Health

As you Get Started With Essential Oils keep these things in Mind:

  • Determine the uses and benefits of the oil you intend to apply.
  • Follow any label and packaging instructions.
  • If you have specific concerns, consult with a healthcare professional first.

How to Apply Essential Oils

1. Through smell. We call this "aromatic" use of essential oils. This includes any application method that helps you experience the aroma of the oil. You can use essential oils aromatically by:

  • Diffusing in an essential oil diffuser
  • Applying a drop to your hands and inhaling
  • Wearing as a personal fragrance

2. On your skin. "Topical" application of essential oils allows the oil to absorb into the skin. Some ways to use essential oils on your skin are:

  • Massage
  • Apply to targeted areas and rub in
  • Add to lotions or moisturizers

3. Ingesting, or "Internal" use of essential oils allows the oil to be transported throughout your body. Make sure the essential oil is safe for internal use first, and then try one of these methods:

  • Add to a glass of water
  • Take in a veggie capsule
  • Put a drop under your tongue
