Take a walk outside and you’ll be instantly surrounded by essential oils living within the botanicals that make up our world. They’re the wonderful aromatics floating in the air from flowers, trees, bushes, and grasses. They live in the branches and needles of the pine trees you lay under, in the blades of grass you walk on, in the roses that you smell, and the peppermint leaves you touch. They play a vital role in a plant’s ability to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Without their essential oils, plants would not survive. Their primary roles in plant biology are that of disease resistance, predatory defense, and being attractants for pollinators. Research shows that essential oils can provide many benefits to humans and animals. Essential oil molecules are very small and very volatile (meaning their molecules rise rapidly into the air). This makes them very distinct from fatty oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, etc. which are very greasy and absorb slowly into the skin. The small molecular structure of essential oils makes them very unique in their ability to absorb rapidly into the skin, penetrate cells, and even travel past the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to enter brain tissue.  When we look at healing modalities throughout history we can see a vast history of essential oils as a go-to staple for health, dating back to 4500 BC. There are over 188 references to essential oils in the Bible alone (Cinnamon, Cassia, Myrrh, and other oils were signs of wealth and status in biblical times and would often be used to anoint the wealthy and powerful. The Three Wise Men brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.) These oils were valued more than gold and were revered for their health-promoting properties. The Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian document, is cited as the world’s first “medical literature.” Created around 1550 BC, it is the largest record of ancient Egyptian medicine in known existence. It contains over 700 plant-based recipes and remedies, many of which would have been derived crudely in essential oil form. Today, there are tens of thousands of studies researching the diverse benefits of essential oils. This show is here to empower you to use these amazing natural tools safely and confidently.
