soothing geraniums in waterCirculation – Muscles and Joints, why should you use essential oils?

Essential oils are easily absorbed via the skin and mucosa into the blood-stream, affecting the nature of the circulation as a whole.  They bring a warmth and glow to the surface of the skin and can provide considerable pain relief to local inflammation by setting free mediators in the body which in turn cause the blood vessels to expand, so the blood is able to move more quickly and the swelling is reduced.

Some oils like hyssop tend to give a balancing or regulating effect on the circulatory system as a whole, reducing the blood pressure if it is too high or stimulating the system if it is sluggish.
