They add moisture, tighten, cleanse, detoxify, increase blood circulation, calm and support the body's functions.
Essential oils have incredible penetrating power. They are lipophilic – or easily mixed with fats – their molecules are smaller than the molecules making up the skin, making them able to penetrate easily, and therefore very quickly.
Essential oils when properly administered produce no harmful side effects. They mobilise the body’s own self-healing powers. They awaken and strengthen vital energies and self-healing capabilities and can deeply influence our psychic equilibrium or psychological well-being and regulate physical imbalances.
They have the ability to directly affect the brain and when absorbed by the skin, can reach the organs to be treated through the connective and lymphatic tissues and the circulatory system. Excretion of essential oils from the body takes place in the lungs and kidneys.
Essential oils greatly support the skin, the largest organ of our body, in its many functions. Applied in diluted forms, they are used for massage, in therapeutic baths, and for compresses, and in skincare treatments. Aromatics work well as an adjunct to other types of treatment and indeed, will be strengthened in its effectiveness when combined.
Madame Marguerite Maury, a French biochemist, found that aromatherapy stimulated the reproduction of skin cells and restored the elasticity of muscle tissue, enabling the skin to remain healthy and comparatively unwrinkled.
Thermal Imaging validates that essential oils can have a dramatic effect on the management of pain in the human body.
How do you explain that a natural essential oil product could start to work on pain and inflammation within three minutes of application? Balanced Essentials approached Thermography Australia in 2005 to conduct some trials using Thermal Imaging to visually show how this result can be achieved. The results were so impressive that in April of that year BE RELIEVED and BE SPORT were featured on A Current Affair as “The Miracle Oils”.
This research validated the products’ claims that pain & inflammation were significantly reduced after just 3 minutes of application and brought recognition of the efficacy of the Balanced Essentials’ products and their ability as an effective natural alternative when considering a treatment for pain and inflammation.
