AROMATHERAPY

also referred to as Essential Oil therapy, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.
So we can interpret his coining of the word “Aromatherapie” to mean the therapeutic application or the medicinal use of aromatic substances (essential oils) for holistic healing. As the practice of aromatherapy has progressed, over the years, it has adopted a more holistic approach encompassing the whole body, mind and spirit (energy).

ESSENTIAL OILS

Essential oils are substances or aromatic liquids extracted from the plants: stems, seeds, leaves, fruits, roots and barks that are distilled by steam and/or pressure while maintaining its therapeutic concentrated power they have. They are the immune system of the plants and possess high energy frequencies.
They carry a variety of potential therapeutic components that vibrate harmoniously with all of our body systems. These liquids are full of oxygen, nutrients such as antioxidants and they are charged with electricity that has been transformed by the Sun light with the photosynthesis process. This together with all the four 4 elements of nature, solar fire, water, air and earth plus the electromagnetic waves that surrounds all constantly makes this harmonic power of the plant’s intelligence.
Likewise, humans are made of the same 4 elements. These elements are manifested in the air we breathe, the 80% water that we have, blood and lymph, the earth in our bones and tendons and the fire of our digestion. In addition, we carry our electro magnetism, our spirit which gives us movement, feelings and ultimately determines our actions.

Essential oils act in our bodies in all levels; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This happens because of the atomic volatility. Millions of small molecules, its concentration, quantity and power makes them penetrate transdermal and intra cellularly covering all the spaces in the body.
Our olfactory system is intimately and deeply linked with the living and pure energy of the plant Kingdom. When we inhale the oils stimulates the olfactory nerve, then the olfactory bulb and activates the system limbic helping to balance our emotions, our memory and our psychological and mental processes. Also through this process it stimulate the two master glands of our brain the pituitary and the pineal that would help to segregate the necessary hormones that gives the feeling of general well-being and homoeostasis of the body. With pure essential oils, we connect directly with the intuition and conscious awareness of what we need in a subtle way beyond what the mind knows.
When oils are used topically, the electric power in the body is higher. Since the membrane of cells are made of photo lipids and proteins it allows oils to enter inside the cell and cross the blood barrier and the brain. Allowing the nervous system to carry a unique frequency and electro magnetic charge that will activate the wholesome and pure response of the body.

What are the 12 human body systems?

• Skeletal System Cartilage Bones, joints and ligaments. Provides overall support, body shape, leverage, and protection. Your bones help protect internal organs.
• Muscular System Muscles (smooth, cardiac and skeletal muscles). Helps provide the power needed for body part movement.
• Cardiovascular System Blood, blood vessels (such as veins, capillaries & arteries) and heart. Helps support the movement of nutrients and blood throughout the body.
• Digestive System Alimentary canal, tongue, teeth, liver, salivary glands, and pancreas. The alimentary canal includes the esophagus, oral cavity, large & small intestine, and anus). Aids with food digestion and absorption throughout the body.
• Endocrine System Includes endocrine glands such as thyroid, pituitary gland, adrenals, and parathyroid glands. Also includes the endocrine part of the liver, ovaries, testes, and pancreas. Regulates overall body function and chemical coordination.
• Lymphatic System Lymph nodes, lymph vessels and lymph (spleen, tonsils, adenoids, and thymus, for example). Helps to filter out bacteria, housing certain kinds of white blood cells and managing body fluid levels.
• Nervous System Spinal cord, brain, nerves and nerve endings. Coordinates and controls body functions.
• Respiratory System Nose, trachea, lungs, bronchioles, bronchi, alveoli, and alveolar sacs. Regulates gas exchange in the blood. Helps get rid of carbon dioxide and other unneeded gases, while absorbing oxygen.
• Immune System Lymph nodes and other lymph vessels/tissue. Helps protect against viruses and bacteria. Allows for proper drainage to keep body tissue and organs free from invading bacteria, germs and viruses.
• Urinary System Urinary bladder, kidneys and urethra. Urine excretion overall regulation of body’s internal environment.
• Integumentary System Hair, skin, sweat glands and nails. Protection (hair, skin, nails) against environment and body temperature control (sweat glands).
• Reproductive System Includes Female and Male
Female Reproductive System Vulva, ovaries, uterus, clitoris, and labia. Egg formation and fetus development.
Male Reproductive System Penis and testes. Production of semen for egg fertilization.
