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.

Understanding essential oils, how they work, what to use, how to safely use them, knowing the facts, and the science behind it is of the utmost importance.
