Essential Oils and Healthy Living Products
It takes hundreds of pounds of each plant, dried and distilled just to make one small bottle of essential oil. So, you are looking at a very concentrated substance. What makes them unique to fatty oils (almond oil, olive oil,coconut oil etc.), is that essential oil molecules are much smaller and volatile, meaning the evaporate into the air.
The importance of the size of the molecules is that they are able to absorb rapidly into the skin, penetrate into the cells and even travel past the blood brain barrier to enter out brain tissue. Which most substances are unable to do. making them unique in their ability to promote brain health, cell health, and really penetrate areas of you body that other substances can't reach.
