“The best form of medicine truly is integrative – one that combines the best of modern and complementary medicine, with preference to the safet, least invasive, and most effective remedy first.” – Dr. Scott Johnson, Surviving When Modern Medicine Fails, page 9
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds and volatile liquids extracted from different parts of plants. Plants naturally use these compounds to ward off pests/predators as in the case of lavender hence, it’s a perfect mosquito repellant; to attract helpful animals such bees, as in the case of neroli flowers of bitter orange trees; to heal itself from wounds as in the case of frankincense which lets out resin when its bark is cut (essential oil is obtained from the resin); and to communicate with other plants when a threat is coming as in the case of most flowering plants. Essential oils play a major role in the plants’ survival and has been a subject of scientific interest for medicinal potential. Thus, essential oils, when pure, isn’t just for making your house smell like spa. When used right, essential oils can help alleviate physical and psychological conditions.
