When essential oils are applied to the body they penetrate the skin via hair follicles and sweat glands and are absorbed into the body fluids, where they not only help to kill bacteria and viruses but also stimulate the body’s immune system, thereby strengthening resistance to disease.
Each essential oil has it’s own character, unique aroma and different therapeutic benefits. For example, Geranium oil helps to re-balance hormones, Bergamot which is refreshing, uplifting and helps lift low mood. Black Pepper is stimulating and warming. Basil acts concentration. Neroli aids sleep. Tea Tree is a strong and effective anti-fungal & anti-bacterial oil. Eucalyptus boosts the immune system. Rosemary improves the circulation. There numerous essential oils to choose from and no two essential oils are quite the same.
