What Exactly ARE Essential Oils?

Essential oils are all around us! Take a walk outside and you’ll be instantly surrounded by essential oils living within the botanicals that make up our world. They’re the wonderful aromatics floating in the air from flowers, trees, bushes, and grasses. They live in the branches and needles of the pine trees you lay under, in the blades of grass you walk on, in the roses that you smell, and the peppermint leaves you touch. They play a vital role in a plant’s ability to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Without their essential oils, plants would not survive. Their primary roles in plant biology are that of disease resistance, predatory defense, and being attractants for pollinators. Research shows that essential oils can provide many benefits to humans and animals.

Essential oil molecules are very small and very volatile (meaning their molecules rise rapidly into the air). This makes them very distinct from fatty oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, etc. which are very greasy and absorb slowly into the skin. The small molecular structure of essential oils makes them very unique in their ability to absorb rapidly into the skin, penetrate cells, and even travel past the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to enter brain tissue. 

When we look at healing modalities throughout history we can see a vast history of essential oils as a go-to staple for health, dating back to 4500 BC. There are over 188 references to essential oils in the Bible alone (Cinnamon, Cassia, Myrrh, and other oils were signs of wealth and status in biblical times and would often be used to anoint the wealthy and powerful. The Three Wise Men brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.) These oils were valued more than gold and were revered for their health-promoting properties.

The Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian document, is cited as the world’s first “medical literature.” Created around 1550 BC, it is the largest record of ancient Egyptian medicine in known existence. It contains over 700 plant-based recipes and remedies, many of which would have been derived crudely in essential oil form.


Today, there are tens of thousands of studies researching the diverse benefits of essential oils. This show is here to empower you to use these amazing natural tools safely and confidently.

    Fight Sex Trafficking w/ Essential Oils w/ Vanessa Bouché

    Fight Sex Trafficking w/ Essential Oils w/ Vanessa Bouché

    This week’s episode makes me think about opposites: the duality that exists in every aspect of our world. Live vs death. Good vs evil. Health vs sickness. Love vs hate. Quality vs crap. Since in this episode, we dive into the world of sex trafficking, I want you to keep in mind one duality: hope vs despiar. It’s easy to choose despair. But nothing is insurmountable. You are the one that can choose hope over despair. I ask you to hold onto hope when being reminded of the harsh reality of current-day slavery.

    Obscure Oils to Try in 2022 w/ Laura Ascher

    Obscure Oils to Try in 2022 w/ Laura Ascher

    I’m embracing BAD SMELLS this year! Yes! And here’s why I want you to join me on this new endeavor. Don’t you sometimes find yourself stuck in a rut with your oils? Using the same staples over and over again? Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint. I’m not even sure I could live without them. But sometimes I wanna shake it up a bit, and try something new. There’s so many benefits to oils that I’m probably missing because I just keep going to the same ones. How about trying the “WORST” smelling oils??? Sometimes the benefits of certain oils can outweigh the “pain” of dealing with a not-so-desired aroma. This week Laura Ascher and I bring you tips and tricks for getting these special and beneficial oils into your system, and why they are so worth it.

    My Favorite Oils + Celebrating 300 Episodes!

    We did it! We made it to a milestone I didn’t fathom possible in 2015 when I started on this journey.  It’s my absolute pleasure to be sharing with you all about my favorite oils, what it means to be a podcaster, what I’ve learned about EOs all these years of asking questions, and why I love my twin sister so much (....she’s interviewing me this week, and yes she sounds just like me). We even touch on the scandal taking place among many oil companies around faking it with their Sacred Frankincense. Thank you for being here, for supporting me, and challenging me to keep asking questions.

    Helping Refugees and Foster Kids Heal From Trauma w/ Mamie Amin

    Helping Refugees and Foster Kids Heal From Trauma w/ Mamie Amin

    When talking about essential oil we often focus on the value they can bring to our own self-car, but what about their power to help others? The first thing you may think of when you hear the words “refugee” and “foster kid” may not be essential oils, but stop and think about it for a moment; so many of these children are forced from their homes because of war, or threat of death, causing tremendous trauma. Don’t we use our oils to deal with our own trauma all the time?  Maybe it’s time to pay it forward. Our guest Mamie Amin works closely with both refugee and foster child systems and shares first hand how she uses oils to give back.

So Grateful!

I’ve been enjoying this podcast for years now! Each episode has helped me learn for myself how to incorporate nature into my daily health lifestyle. This podcast has truly been a blessing since day 1

Humhoney ,

Young Living folks- hard pass

The fact that Young Living, a company KNOWN TO PASS OFF CHEMICALS as ESSENTIAL OILS is used by host. I’ll pass. Real oils are alive and so potent. Use a real organic/biodynamic line. -RA

Essential Oil Enthusiast ,

Awesome Info with Genuine Host!

I randomly discovered this podcast in my search for authentic, helpful essential oil info. I’ve already recommended it to multiple people because it’s just so good! It features knowledgeable and credible guests who have interesting stories and helpful EO tips. The host is super authentic and not trying to sell you oils. She simply offers up what works and the oils she loves while providing other scientific research and support to inform listeners on the powers of essential oils. It’s a must listen if you want reliable info on how to optimize your oil use.
