When we inhale the plant oils in Phoenix, 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 in the brain.
The receptors that these molecules stimulate boost the immune system (immunostimulants) by telling the brain to create more white blood cells and antibodies in our blood.
When we feel stress, it increases our cortisol levels. Inhaling certain plant oils (included in Phoenix) have been shown to have the ability to signal to the brain to reduce stress hormones (like cortisol and adrenaline) in the body to decrease our sympathetic nervous system, effectively lowering our risk of falling ill.
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. In Phoenix, these molecules can further aid in supporting the immune system.TOPICAL BENEFITS
The plant oils in Phoenix are strong enough to destroy microorganisms both in the air and on surfaces.
The oils in Phoenix 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 find their way into our bloodstream and may aid in circulating lymph to kill microorganisms and sweep away toxins. They also are anti-inflammatories (which help soothe sinuses), decongestants, expectorants, antiseptics and antioxidants (which further boost the immune system).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.

For aromatic use: Hold the roll-on under to the nose and breathe in the fragrance for up to five inhales. Wait at least five minutes before repeating. It may take up to 20 minutes to feel the full effect.
For topical use (therapeutic acupressure points): Apply the roll-on under the jawline (on top of the lymph nodes in the neck), under the collar bone or under the centre of the feet. Dilution not required, however, perform a patch test on skin for 24 hours before using topically.
For scent use: Apply the roll-on on the wrists or behind the ears (where the pulse can be felt).
Additional uses: Remove the cap with the roller ball and pour up to ten drops to a footbath or bath.
For best results: Store in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Best if used within four months after opening, as it may lose potency over time.
For external use only. Not for human consumption. Avoid direct sunlight or UV light after applying on skin for up to twelve hours. Do not use on children, while breastfeeding or during pregnancy. Do not apply directly on an open wound or cut. Do no use near the eye or mouth. Should eye contact occur, rinse immediately with water. If any adverse reactions, like itching or redness on site of application, stop use immediately.
