No Longer the Missing Link in Internal Medicine
May – June 2021 • Vol 3, No 115
Essential oils are no longer the missing link in modern medicine. More and more health practitioners, doctors, scientists, veterinarians, dentists, massage therapists, spas and health-conscious consumers of all ages understand the ancient science of aromatherapy for both people and animals. Now millions of people are applauding the power of essential oils. Millions more are being introduced to essential oils every year.
Therapeutic essential oils have powerful influences. The fragrance of an unadulterated essential oil can directly affect everything from your emotional state to your lifespan. An oil molecule functions like a lock and key, similar to an odor molecule fitting a specific receptor site. In 1996, an Italian scientist named Luca Turin theorized that the vibrational properties of molecules enable humans to distinguish smells. He suggests that the olfactory receptors sense the quantum vibration of each odorant’s atoms. Each olfactory receptor is tuned to different frequencies. This allows humans to perceive an almost limitless number of odors.
