Additionally, oxygen molecules in the oils assist in carrying nutrients around the body. Oils are very powerful antioxidants and so create an unfriendly environment for cell damaging free radicals. Tests performed on essential oils show that they kill bacteria, fungi and viruses while bringing balance to the body.

The aroma of essential oils stimulates the emotional center in the brain and help promote feelings of happiness as well as release unpleasant emotional memories. Oils are also piezoelectric, they carry a frequency and raise the frequency of the body when applied. Higher frequencies are synonymous with beneficial health and wellbeing.
