When essential oils are applied to people, they do the same thing; carrying oxygen into cells and carrying waste products out. In fact, essential oils are one of nature’s best body cleansers. They can cleanse our cellular receptor sites of pharmaceutical drugs, petrochemicals, and other disruptors of intercellular communication. They can also chelate heavy metals and other toxins, helping to remove and flush them through the liver, colon, sweat, lungs, and kidneys. They can also increase our ability to absorb vitamins and other nutrients.

At the close of twenty minutes, every cell in the body will have been affected. It stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain that is connected to smell, including the brain. Molecules enter the nose or mouth, pass to the lungs, and from there – transports to other parts of the body.
