A single essential oil is usually made up of hundreds of different chemical components in major, minor and trace constituents. Each individual component brings its own set of properties to the oil. It's the combination of these constituents, which gives each essential oil its characteristic smell.

Aromatherapy works by synergistically using the properties of all the chemicals in the essential oil for their correct application. Infact the side effects of any one particular harsh chemical is balanced by the other chemicals, even though they might be trace chemicals.

Aromatherapy works through

A)
Inhalation - the molecular structure of an essential oil is very minute lungs through the olfactory nerve, from where they diffuse across tiny air sacs (alveoli) into the surrounding blood capillaries and eventually find their way into the systemic circulation from where they exert their therapeutic effect.

B)
Skin absorption - the skin is a two way street capable of both absorption and excretion for e.g. rub a small piece of cut garlic on the soles of your feet…. within 5 minutes you will have garlic breath.

The tiny molecules of essential oils pass through the hair follicles, which contain sebum, an oily liquid to which essential oils have an affinity. From where the oils diffuse into the blood stream or are taken up by the lymph or interstitial fluid (a liquid surrounding all body cells) to other parts of the body.

Aromatherapy works on the simple basic principle of enjoying the fragrance. If the fragrance is disliked the treatment will not be beneficial. It combines the feel good aspect along with the therapeutic aspect.

The essential oils along with having a therapeutic effect on the physical body, also have different effects on the psychological and spiritual self. They help in curing the mind, body soul thus making it a holistic form of healing.
