Essential Oil Therapy, also known as Aromatherapy is the discipline of using natural aromatic and fragrant essential oils collected from flowers, fruits, stems, leaves, bark, and roots for therapeutic and medicinal purposes. Plant based essential oils and extracts are used in this form of therapy for the purpose of bringing balance, harmony, and health to the mind, body, and spirit of mankind.

Aromatherapy provides immediate positive impact on a participant when they partake of this form of therapy. The fast reaction time is due to the volatility of the oils themselves! The molecular structure of pure essential oil is extremely small, down to the micron level. When diffused into the air, it is easily absorbed through the nasal cavity and lungs bringing the full impact of their healing properties into the human physiology.
It combines physiological, psychological, and spiritual processes to augment an individual’s natural biological healing properties, encouraging our immune systems to operate at their fullest potential. By stimulating our blood circulation through the expansion of our blood vessels, we speed up the process of reducing inflammation in the body. By revitalizing our brain activity, essential oils reduce stress and tension; bring a calming effect to our soul; peace and calm to our mind.
Many Essential Oils contain vitamins, beneficial hormones, antibiotics, and contain antiseptic properties; all, which bring added benefits to our bodies in the preservation and healing processes.

The War On Super-Bugs.  Cinnamon Essential Oil

As time goes by, certain strains of super-bugs have gotten stronger, and traditional methods of disinfection simply do not work anymore due to the fact that the bacteria has mutated and adapted to its new environment of artificial chemistry.
Scientists are working around the clock to find solutions to this dilemma, and are realizing that they are fighting a loosing battle.
That is! Until they began researching the benefits of natural products like essential oils, Cinnamon Essential Oil! Here they have uncovered the ancient knowledge, lost through time, of the super-powers many natural essential oils contain within their cellular components that have a promising effect against microbial-disease causing bacterial infections.
There is a renewed effort on the part of science, focusing on the effects that natural essential oils have on bacteria and microbial pathogens, in their determination to regain control of the problem of bacterial development and mutation. These natural products are offering a solution to the dilemma.
For the study published in Microbiology, Dr. Sanjida Halim Topa, PhD, tested different concentrations of cinnamaldehyde; the component of cinnamon that gives it its flavor, on biofilms of the disease-causing bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa that’s responsible for everything from skin rashes and ear infections to pneumonia and blood infections. Cinnamon oil did wonders for stopping the development of the bacteria in its tracks, disrupting its formation by nearly 76 percent.

To understand the magic of aromatherapy, one must understand the underlying principals of the olfactory senses; the powerful sense of smell which is cohesively connected to the sense of taste.
Of the five basic senses the sense of smell is the only one with a direct channel to our brain, which elicits immediate responses upon reception of odors, fragrances, and aromas.

The sense of smell, just like the sense of taste, is a chemical sense. They are called chemical senses because they detect chemicals in the environment, with the difference being that smell works at dramatically larger distances than that of taste. The process of smelling goes more or less like this:
Vaporized odor molecules (chemicals) floating in the air reach the nostrils and dissolve in the mucus, which is on the roof of each nostril.
