Artist/designer/photographer, writer, film fanatic, fashion lover, gypsy-turned-householder.   Playing with herbs and essential oils since 2003.

Here is a quote from an amazing book of essential oil therapy, The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, by British aromatherapist Valerie Ann Worwood:

One cannot but admire their ability to operate effectively not only on the cellular, physical level, but in the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and aesthetic areas of our lives also.  If anything in this world is holistic, it is essential oils.  However, it is not only because the essential oils treat a human being as a whole that they could be the materia medica of the future.  They provide a system of medicine which is not only in total biochemical harmony with the human body, but also non-invasive to it in terms of heat and electromagnetism.

I find the body’s “electromagnetism” to be fascinating, so here’s more on that, from Valerie Ann:

Each body cell is electrically charged and the effect of electricity, in all its forms, plays a part in the healing process. The dextrorotatory and lavorotatory (clockwise and counterclockwise) characteristics of essential oils have been known for a long time but need to be reassessed in view of the growing awareness about the importance of the body’s electromagnetic fields. It could be that these aspects of the essential oils contribute towards stimulating the body’s own natural healing mechanisms.

After working with the oils for several years, I am convinced her statements are completely true!
