Essential oils work on the mind and body as we respond physically and psychologically. When we inhale an essential oil, oil molecules enter our lungs and into our bloodstream. They interact and affect our entire body chemistry, calming or stimulating the immune system, digestion, nervous system, the endocrine/genito-urinary system and skin. Essential oils are diluted with a carrier  or base oil when applied to skin (with exception of tea tree and lavender).  The oil molecules are so small they penetrate the skin and readily enter the circulation, acting therapeutically to help calm, energize and heal.  They are later excreted from the body leaving no toxic residue.
