Transcend Pure Essential Oils
Pure essential oils have a wide range of therapeutic benefits including physical healing, relaxation, and emotional restoration. Essential oils exert their most powerful and direct pharmacological effects systemically via the blood supply to the brain. They also have an indirect effect via the olfactory nerve pathways into the brain.
When used in aromatherapy, essential oils are absorbed through blood circulation and nerve pathways from the sinuses into the central glands of the brain, which control emotional, neurological, and immunological functions. This leads to feelings of relaxation, relief from conditions like depression and emotional despondency, or alternatively, mental and physical rejuvenation.
Essential oils are absorbed in minute quantities through the skin when applied topically, depending on the oil, dilution, and application, i.e. carrier oil, compress. When certain essential oils are inhaled, they have a direct effect on the sinuses, throat, and lungs. Therefore, many essential oils are specific medicines for respiratory conditions. Essential oils also have beneficial effects on circulatory problems, both through dermal and respiratory absorption. These oils enhance the circulation stimulating effects of massage. Essential oils can be used to transcend limitations in every area of your life.

- Most essential oils should be blended with a carrier oil before being applied topically. Lavender, Chamomile, and Ylang Ylang are generally safe to use without dilution. The concentration of the essential oil in a carrier oil is recommended to be between 2%-10%.
- Unprocessed carrier oils marked organic or cold-pressed are the ideal choice to blend with your essential oil. Carrier oils made from vegetables, nuts or seeds such as sweet almond oil, olive oil, and sunflower oil are the most commonly used. Vitamin E oil has additional benefits when used as a carrier oil.
- Test how your skin reacts to any oil by dapping a drop of it on your wrist or the inside of your elbow.
- If you have a mild headache or the scent begins to bother you, the oil needs to be diluted further before any additional use.
