Dermal Absorption of Essential Oils 2

Dermal Absorption of Essential Oils

So how do essential oils work in the body and reach the bloodstream? What considerations should be taken when creating an essential oil blend for a client and administering a blend topically? It is important to know how quickly and to what extent essential oils penetrate the skin and find their way into the bloodstream. It is also pertinent to understand the factors that aid or hinder dermal absorption. Dermal absorption is the transport of a chemical from the outer surface of the skin both into the skin and into the body. The question of absorption via the skin has been full of controversy for many years. Essential oils can and do affect the skin cells, but do they get into the body via lymph or bloodstream this way? Old research showing lavender in the bloodstream within a half-hour after diluted skin application did not factor out inhalation, which is the quickest and most effective way of getting an essential oil into the bloodstream.
