How Essential Oils work and why they are so great for Immunity !
What is an essential Oil? And what is all the rage?
Essential Oils are volatile compounds found in many plants, trees and flowers.
The are mostly steam distilled to extract them from the plant. Their use dates back to Egyptian times.
Still, what exactly are they?
Plants make Essential oils to protect and/or attract predators or other things, like bees to flowers.
In Chinese Medicine the immune system is called the Wei Qi, it is a the Protective Qi, of the body. This is basically an energy that circulates around our skin to protect us from pathogens. When a pathogen is stronger than the Wei Qi it can infiltrate. Of course, there are other ways for pathogens to enter our bodies, but this is the basic idea.
Since Essential Oils main function is of a protective one, you can see why they are so great for boosting our immunity.
Examples are Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint for allergies, Lemon and Lavender are both anti-mucolytic and great for phlegm. Mints are arid, and they help open the pores in our skin to vent pathogens out of our systems. Lemon is cleansing and stringent, Lavender, is a calming sedative and also helps our lungs relax and clear out phlegm.
One of the major strengths of oils are aiding in the respiratory system for this same reason. They can help open airways, clear out the gunk, and phlegm, invigorate and improve circulation in the chest.
