Essential oils. We’ve all heard of them, but what are they and how can they aid in improving overall wellbeing? Here’s an inside look into what some call the “new antibiotics.” But first, let’s get contextual. The use of essential oils dates as far back as 4500 B.C. in ancient Egyptian society, where oils extracted from plants were often used in religious worship and to produce medicine, topical ointments, powders, and more. Fast forward to 2019 and they’re still around – natural and uniquely aromatic oils extracted from plants via distillation methods (steam/water/cold press). Keyword: aromatic.
Why do natural, plant-based essential oils matter?
Essential oils are recognized as healing powerhouses. As with any other substance, the chemical makeup of each essential oil determines their effects, including therapeutic benefits and safety for use on skin. For the chemistry fans out there, essential oils are mainly made up of molecules known as terpenes, which are unsaturated hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants that determine the different effects and aromas of essential oils. A good example is limonene, a terpene found in citrus plants, whose therapeutic and medicinal benefits are far and wide, from treating heartburn to fighting cancer.
How does aromatherapy work?
Natural, pure-grade essential oils have amazing psychological and physical benefits when applied or inhaled. That’s just the power of something called aromatherapy, or in scientific terms, the stimulation of the olfactory system (smelling the good stuff). Your body’s olfactory system controls all organs that produce the sense of smell. According to author and aromatherapist, Roberta Wilson, “aromatherapy has many benefits, including the ability to boost the immune system, treat aches and pains, and restore internal balance.”
When we inhale essential oils through the nose or mouth, the molecules interact with the olfactory system. The olfactory system works with the respiratory system, where the essential oil molecules attach to our lungs. What’s the end goal? Affect the emotional brain. Odor molecules attach to receptors in the limbic system, aka “emotional brain,” which is directly connected to parts of the brain that determine heart rate, blood pressure, memory and stress levels. Think about how you feel when you smell something good. It changes or elevates your mood, right?

Why are essential oils the “new antibiotic” in town?
The centuries-old medicinal use of essential oils has placed these natural elixirs of wellness in a new category in the 21stcentury: the “new antibiotic.” Traditional antibiotics are powerful compounds that fight bacterial infections. It is known that the human body builds resistance each time antibiotics are taken. So what’s the alternative?
Essential oils, on the other hand, can serve as a new method for combating bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Essential oils can be used as plant-based alternatives to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. A 2016 research study demonstrates the antimicrobial properties of essential oils against human pathogens as a result of antibiotic resistance. For instance, researchers found that cinnamon, clove, pimento, thyme, oregano, and rosemary essential oils possessed strong antibacterial properties against bacteria that causes Salmonella and Pneumonia, with clove oil having particularly stronger antibacterial qualities. In a study conducted at James Cook University in Australia, scientists discovered that drug-resistant bacteria were found on the biofilms of medical devices, which leads to millions of infections per year. They used nanotechnology to create antibacterial coatings for the devices with plant molecules derived from tea tree oil, which was effective in keeping bad bacteria at bay.
