Lavender Essential Oil Diffuser Blends

Need a pick me up… or a breath of fresh air? How ’bout a “it’s been a crazy day, the kids are wrestling, the pasta’s boiling over, take me away” kind of calm down?
Lavender essential oil can relieve pain, eleviate tension headaches, treat respiratory issues and treat minor burns, insect bites and stings. There are those use lavender oil to relive joint muscle pain. It’s most widely known use is a sedative to ensure a good nights rest.
I believe essential oils are really at their most beneficial when we use them aromatically. Essential oil molecules are less than 800-1000 atomic mass units (amu) in molecular weight which allows them to cross the blood brain barrier. This makes them uniquely able to support our own bodies ability to heal, not only in the physical plane, but also with the emotions connected to healing or blocking our recovery.

Because of the tiny molecular structure of the components of an essential oil, they are extremely concentrated. One drop contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules. Numerically that is a 4 with 19 zeros after it: 40,000,000,000,000,000,000. We have 100 trillion cells in our bodies, and that’s a lot. But one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 40,000 molecules. Considering that it only takes one molecule of the right kind to open a receptor site and communicate with the DNA to alter cellular function, you can see why even inhaling a small amount of oil vapor can have profound effects on the body, brain, and emotions. Sometimes too many oil molecules overload the receptor sites, and they freeze up without responding at all, when a smaller amount would have been just right. This is why we say that when using oils, “sometimes less is better.” Sometimes more is better, too. Knowing the difference is the art of aromatherapy.
