Abstract

For thousands of years people have been using essential oils for relaxation, energy, memory, mood enhancement and healing. Today, people are coming back to essential oils for these same reasons. The analgesic (pain relief) and healing properties of essential oils have made them a popular alternative medicine treatment for people with chronic pain. Though many of the chemical pathways are still unknown, scientists have discovered several ways these oils interact with the body on a cellular level to produce the analgesic and relaxing effect. This presentation will focus on these effects.
