Essential oils are highly complex, easily absorbed aromatic liquids far more potent than dried herbs or herbal potions. Usually steam distilled at low temperatures, from the flowers, roots, leaves, and seeds of plants essential oils are not fat based, like vegetables oils such as olive, almond or walnut oils. Since essential oils are extremely small in size, they are HIGHLY concentrated. One drop of essential oil contains 40 million-trillion molecules. We have 100 trillion cells in our body, so one drop of essential oil has enough molecules to cover 40,000 molecules. Hence a little goes a long way when using essential oils. One does not have to use a lot when applying or ingesting pure, genuine essential oils. Let’s discuss three of the (many) compounds found in essential oils. They are Phenols, Monoterpenes, and Sesquiterpenes….
For example, a very powerful way to see true healing essential oils work is the effect on the limbic portion of our brain and the autonomic nervous system:
When essential oils are inhaled through the nose, aromatic molecules are carried through the lining of the nasal cavity via tiny olfactory nerves, located in the roof of the inner nose, to the part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system in turn influences the endocrine system and the autonomic nervous system.
The endocrine system is a major regulatory force in the body. It consists of glands that secrete hormones into the bloodstream; these hormones act as chemical mediators to regulate many bodily functions including mood, metabolism, and growth and development.
The autonomic nervous system operates, for the most part, below the level of our awareness. It connects the brain and spinal cord to the limbs and organs and directs, via electrical impulse, basic instinctive bodily functions such as heart rate, digestion, respiration rate, salivation, perspiration, and sexual response.
While it may seem counterintuitive, inhalation can be the most direct method of delivery for the healing components in oils. Through the nasal cavity, the chemical messengers have direct access to the brain and can go straight to work on the systems that moderate the body.
When essential oils are applied to the skin, their healing components are absorbed into the bloodstream. From there they disperse to the specific organs and systems on which they work. Some of the essential oils’ components, carried via the bloodstream, can also pass through the blood-brain barrier to the limbic system in the brain, where they can influence the endocrine and autonomic nervous systems.We see huge changes in our boys focus, social skills, language and sleep when using essential oils. They were a critical piece in our recovery from autism.
Whether inhaled or applied topically, essential oils can help bring about fundamental changes in physical, mental and emotional wellbeing by triggering, and strengthening, our bodies’ own natural responses. We designed our blends with a combination of inhalation and application in mind for the greatest effectiveness. The times to inhale each blend, and places to apply it, will vary based on the blend.
Phenols, which are a specific type of molecular compound found in many essential oils offer a host of cleansing properties. Phenols create conditions where unfriendly viruses and bacteria cannot live. In addition to their antimicrobial abilities, phenols also promote hormonal balance and healthy bodily function. Their most important feature is that they clean the receptor sites on the cells. If the receptor sites aren’t clean, cells can’t communicate, and with lack of communication your body ends up malfunctioning and sickness sets in. The following essential oils contain phenols, with Anise essential oil being the highest in phenol content.
Monoterpenes are a specific type of molecular compound found in most essential oils and offer a host of healing properties. The absolute, most important property of the Monoterpene is its magical ability to REPROGRAM mis-written information in the cellular memory, or DNA. What happens when there is incorrect coding in the DNA? Simply put, the cells malfunction and the body falls sick. Monoterpenes can also be spiritually elevating by stimulating the pineal gland. They are strong supporters of the immune system and boost the body’s natural defenses. Here are some examples of oils with Monoterpenes content….

Sesquiterpenes are a specific type of molecular compound found in certain essential oils that deliver oxygen to the cells. Since the size of the molecules of essential oils are extremely tiny, essential oils have the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier unlike drugs or chemotherapy. Oils high in sesquiterpenes can be beneficial in brain related issues like loss of memory. Sesquiterpenes also aid in ERASING and DEPROGRAMMING mis-written code in cellular memory. Sesquiterpenes have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and immune stimulating properties. When essential oils high in sesquiterpenes are inhaled, there is increased activity in the pineal, pituitary and hypothalamus glands, thereby increasing output of growth hormone and melatonin. Additionally, more endorphins are secreted, which may increase the antibodies in our systems. Here are some essential oils high in sesquiterpene content…

To understand how monoterpenes can restore proper programming after the phenols have cleansed the receptor sites, and the sesquiterpenes have deleted cellular misinformation, it is important to realize that essential oils act as a channel between the physical body and the body’s electromagnetic field. Suffice to say that our physical bodies are secondary to and reflections of our subtle bodies composed of light and field energy.
All three compounds (phenols, monoterpenes, and sesquiterpenes) work individually and as a whole to help bring the body back to a state of equilibrium and balance.
