When we inhale the plant oils in Core, tiny molecules are able to be dissolved into the lining of our nose. These molecules stimulate receptors, which then use receptor neurons to carry signals directly to the limbic system and hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is the command centre of the brain that regulates hormones in charge of telling us when we’re hungry or full. The oils can therefore send signals to our brain that tell us our appetite is satisfied, even if we haven’t eaten to help us curb cravings and manage our weight.
When we feel stress, it increases our cortisol levels. Stress slows down digestion, and decreases secretion of enzymes. Inhaling certain plant oils (included in Core) have been shown to have the ability to signal to the brain to reduce stress hormones (like cortisol and adrenaline) in the body to allow it to naturally support the hormones associated with digestion.
When we inhale essential oils their active ingredients can also be absorbed directly into our bloodstream due to their small molecules diffusing into our lungs, where they enter our blood and the active ingredients then further their potential for pharmacological activity. In Core, these molecules can further aid in supporting the regulation of digestive juices, a healthy stomach function, the elimination of unhealthy microbes, and regulating glucose in the blood.TOPICAL BENEFITS
These plant oils contain small enough molecules that can be used topically and absorbed through the skin. Similar to the effect of these molecules being diffused through our lungs, when they are diffused through our skin, the active ingredients may find their way into our bloodstream and into the central nervous system to further impact our cravings and hormones.
Core also contains carminative herbs that have been shown in studies to boost the digestive system when used topically. These herbs may also reduce gas, regulate digestive juices, increase digestive enzyme levels and absorption of nutrients, and reduce stomach pain and inflammation.EXTRA BENEFITS OF HEAT
Heat stimulates further circulation of blood and lymph, and helps the plant oils to absorb deeper within the body. Be sure to use heat in the form of a warm washcloth resting on top of the oils topically. Avoid heat from UV or sunlight (as some oils may react with sunlight to cause redness on the skin).ENERGETIC BENEFITS – THERAPEUTIC ACUPRESSURE POINTS
Using the roll-on on particular acupressure points along the body amplifies its therapeutic function. The plant oils contained in the roll-on are potent enough to stimulate acupuncture points without the needles, while also transferring their energetic information into the body through the specific acupuncture point that has a similar therapeutic function and into the meridians (energy pathways) of the body, creating a mutual resonance and synergy between the point and the plant oils to further enhance healing within the body.
