Essential oils are made of the tiniest of molecules - these are molecules that are small enough to pass through all of the tissues of the plant and into their cells. These same molecules are those that can penetrate the skin and the blood-brain barrier of a human being. Any compound that is less than (<) 500 amu can do this. That is what makes compounds in essential oils so effective in the human body. They bring nutrition and information into cells, and transport out waste products.
Any essential oil, placed anywhere on the body is transdermal - and can reach any part of your body within minutes.
Essential oils in plants:
1. Regulate plant growth (like hormones)
2. Aid in plant metabolism (like enzymes)
3. Provide the basis for the plant’s immune system - and can perform similar functions in the human body’s immune system.
Most all essential oils can have antiseptic properties or act as microbicides. Essential oils are the most powerful antioxidants, that are capable of eliminating free radicals in our bodies. Essential oils, compresses, and teas from plants - have been used as part of peoples’ healing for thousands of years.
What is important to remember is that what makes essential oils so powerful are the life-force that they contain within them - their vibration at which they resonate. The most powerful (and arguably only effective) essential oils are those that come from plants that - grown in soil with real, biodynamic processes, and distilled by processes that preserve the molecules in the plant. Isolated ingredients that create “fake” essential oils - have no life-force because they lack the natural and innate molecules that were a part of what made the molecules for the plant have life. You can fake the chemical structure to get part of the effect (like natural peppermint flavoring or lavender scent), but you cannot fake what the oils did for the plant, as a whole and complete structure. “Natural peppermint flavoring” is not organically derived, whole-plant peppermint essential oil. “Natural lavender scent” is not an essential oil created by supercritical CO2 extraction. These compounds are synthesized in a lab. It is only part of the healing equation. Most “essential oils” on the marketplace are counterfeit - they may smell the part but lack the chemical compounds that heal our bodies - like terpenes and phenols.
Humans and plants share many of the same compounds - that is what makes our synergy with them so exciting. Just as a plant-based diet can be good for health and well-being, whole plant based medicines can also have amazing and profound effects when plants are grown with love, care, and attention to natural, biodynamic processes.
CBD-rich hemp oil is much like an essential oil taken from the hemp plant. It is from the leaves and stems of the plant (differentiating itself from "hemp seed oil" that is taken from the seeds of hemp, and are high in omega-fatty acids, whose molecular chains are too long and too heavy to be used in transdermal applications (they will not penetrate the skin)). There are cannabinoids and terpenes that are present in full-spectrum CBD-rich hemp oil - making it like other essential oils from other plants.
