Essential Oils for Acne, Skin Care, Hair Care, Massage and Perfumes - Charles Gruger

GRUGER

INTRODUCTION

––––––––

Essential oils are highly potent organic substances educed from the leaves, flowers, branches, stems or roots of plants. They are often described as containing the very essence of the plant from which they are extracted, such as the fragrance and other properties for which such plants are known for. Steam distillation and solvent extraction are the most common methods used to extract essential oils from plants. There are other methods that can be used to extract essential oils such as rectification and expression.

Essential oils are not as stable as normal cooking oils; they are easily oxidized when exposed to heat or sunlight and lose their effectiveness. This is because essential oils are composed of very volatile components. Thus they are better stored in a dark glass bottle, not plastic, this is because essential oils can corrode and eat through plastics.  Essential oils, being highly concentrated distillates, have a high potency and can become dangerous if used in high doses. They are usually diluted with other oils such as bath oils or lotions, especially when used directly on the skin.

It is not advisable to ingest essential oils; they are powerful enough to be absorbed through the skin. However, if it is to be used orally it must be diluted with cooking oils and be used in trace amounts. Essential oils should not be used by pregnant women, children or the elderly without proper supervision of a doctor. Also, people with a history of epilepsy or seizures and those with sensitive skin should not use essential oils.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to achieve better physical emotional and mental health. Aromatherapy has been used by different cultures and civilizations for more than 4000 years. They are very effective for therapeutic use because they are made up of tiny molecules that can be absorbed at the cellular level and can also bypass the blood-brain barrier.

There are three major ways in which essential oils are used in aromatherapy, which include:

Applying the essential oils topically: by massaging the essential oils, diluted with lotions or other suitable vegetable oils, into the skin. They can also be applied topically by bathing with essential oils mixed with bathing oils; or using compresses.

Aerial diffusion: by using electronic diffusers, candles or sprays, to disinfect the air or to give it a refreshing scent. This also helps to alleviate mood swings and depression.

Inhalation: to help disinfect and decongest the respiratory tract. This is done by inhaling from a mixture of about 2 to 3 drops of essential oil in a bowl of boiling water. Allow a distance of about 7 to 9 inches between your face and the bowl, and cover your head with a towel to prevent steam from escaping.

WHY USE ESSENTIAL OILS

––––––––Improves the Immune System of the Body

Essential oils boost the immunity level of the body by helping to fight infection causing pathogens. Essential oils such as ginger, eucalyptus, cassia, peppermint, hyssop, marjoram, frankincense, lime and oregano are good antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agents. They not only fight against, they inhibit and protect against the growth and proliferation any such microbes.

Essential oils are useful in dealing with pathogens like staphylococcus aureus, candida albicans etc that are becoming resistant to antibiotics.

Boosts Mental Acuity

Essential oils are known to be good stimulants and also have a calming, soothing and sedative property. This helps to boost mental acuity and cognition, at the same time relieve mental stress and tension. Essential oils are also known to help reverse the symptoms of memory loss and mental degeneration experienced by persons suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease

This can also be attributed to the activities of antioxidants, of which essential oils are an excellent source, which helps to stop free radicals in their tracks.

Reduces Depression, Anxiety and Stress

Essential oils such as lavender, frankincense, bergamot, rose, chamomile and ylang ylang have a calming, soothing, sedative, and relaxing property, which is useful in reducing anxiety, nervous tension, stress, hysteria, mood swings and depression.

Promotes the Process of Digestion

Ginger, lemongrass, fennel, peppermint, black pepper and marjoram are some of the essential oils that aid in the stimulation of digestion. Essential oils promote the digestive process by stimulating the secretion of various digestive enzymes starting from salivary juice, gastric juice to the secretion of bile. These enzymes help in breaking down food and in the easier absorption of nutrients.

This property of essential oils makes them useful in treating indigestion and constipation, especially ginger. They also help to boost the health of the gastrointestinal tract by discouraging the conditions that can cause microbial growth.

Good Analgesics/Painkilling Properties

One other benefit of essential oils is their ability to reduce pain by not just numbing the area where the pain is felt, but tackling the root cause of the pain. This is due to essential oils being able to reduce inflammations, have a calming effect, reduce pressure in the sinuses, encourage the circulation of blood, and the sedative effect of some essential oils.

Some essential oils with the property of being a good analgesic include: lavender, rosemary, frankincense, peppermint, ginger, roman chamomile, eucalyptus, myrrh, majoram, and tumeric.

Increases Productivity and Energy Levels

Being able to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, essential oils can increase the amount of oxygen that is made available to the brain, making it able to function more efficiently which results in one being more mentally alert and sharp, an increase in energy levels, and a decrease in the tendency to get tired easily.

This is useful for persons who engage in physical activity a lot, especially athletes. Lemongrass, peppermint, rosemary, grapefruit, and eucalyptus are some of the essential oils have this property.

Helps to Correct Sleep Disorders

Essential oils are known for their sedative, relaxing, soothing and calming effect, especially lavender, vertiver, bergamot, chamomile and ylang ylang. This makes them capable of not only inducing sleep, but also improving the quality of sleep one gets.

These essential oils are important in treating persons with sleeping disorders, especially insomnia, and inability to have a deep and restful sleep. They can also help persons with sleep deprivation.

Detoxifies the Body

Some essential oils help to rid the body of toxins that may have accumulated over time. This is due to the diuretic properties of such oils, which stimulates the formation of urine, which in turn helps to flush out uric acid from the body. Accumulation of uric acid is what is responsible for the symptoms seen in gout, and inflammations associated with rheumatoid arthritis.

Ginger, fennel, lemongrass, grapefruit and peppermint are some of the essential oils that are important in the detoxification of the body.

Brings Out the Shine in the Skin

The antiseptic and quick healing property of some essential oils make them ideal to be used in producing skin care lotions and creams. They are useful in treating wounds, skin damage like burns, and infections of the skin such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

Essential oils are also able to clear spots, scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. They clean up the pores on the skin, inhibits the activities of microbes, which helps to prevent and reduce acne. Essential oils also slow down aging.

Essential oils with such properties include clary sage, lavender, helichrysum, rosemary, roman chamomile, tea tree, myrrh and frankincense.

BASIC COMPONENTS OF ESSENTIAL OILS

––––––––

Being aromatic compounds, the major components of essential oils consist of Aldehydes, Esters, Ketones, Lactones, Phenols, and Terpenes.

Aldehydes

Essential oils with aldehydes as there major components are lemongrass and citronella. They used mainly for their anti-inflammatory properties, though they also have a disinfectant and antifungal property. Such is only safe to be used in minute quantities such as concentrations of 0.01 because they can be irritating to the skin due to their highly volatile nature. Essential which have aldehydes as their major component should be thrown away and replaced every six months. This is because they can be easily oxidized, and will typically go rancid within that time
