What Are Essential Oils and What Are Their Benefits?
Essential Oils are the "blood" of the plant, functioning as the plant's immune defense system. They provide the plant with its aromatic essence and are thought to give the plant its "life force". Protecting the plant from disease and assisting the plant in its adaptation to the environment, essential oils are inherently anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic, anti microbial, anti-viral and antiseptic.
Essential oils are the most potent and concentrated extracts of seeds, fruits, wood, roots, leaves, flowers, and resins. Essential oils, which maintain a high bio-electrical frequency, can help to restore wellness and balance, when applied to the human body.
How Do the Patches Work?
Natural Patches of Vermont Body Patches incorporate the age old practice of Aromatherapy and the topical benefits of essential oils to help restore balance and wellness. The practice of Aromatherapy utilizes various aromas to affect the body’s response to internal and external. Inhalation of essential oils evokes an immediate olfactory response. As we breathe in, warm moist air carries tiny molecules of the essential oils through the nasal passages stimulating olfactory cells, which send impulses to the olfactory nerve and in turn to the limbic portion of the brain.
The limbic portion of the brain is responsible for our sense of smell, but also controls hunger, moods, memories and emotions. Since ancient times Essential Oils and Aromatherapy have been used to enhance well-being and promote balance of the physical and emotional self, by the controlled introduction of specific scents to the body and its surroundings. The use of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy may bring about a positive reaction to many common complaints including, but not limited to; Aches and Pains, Lack of Energy, Stress, Sleeplessness, Nasal Congestion…etc. and is a wonderful holistic approach to balancing the mind, body and spirit on many levels.
What Are the Patches Made Of?
Essential Oil Body Patches offer a refreshing alternative to messy oils, lotions and salves. The patches are made of a cloth layer that is coated with an adhesive, which is bio-compatible (skin friendly) and formulated from medical and food grade ingredients. The adhesive layer is infused with a combination of essential oils and extra virgin olive oil. Our patches are both LATEX and PRESERVATIVE FREE. They contain no animal products and are not tested on animals.
How Do I Apply the Patch?
Patches should be placed on clean, dry skin. (The placement of each patch depends on the variety being used. Please refer to the instructions on the packaging.)
Step 1: Wash and dry the area where the patch will be applied to remove any excess oils or lotions that could prevent the patch from adhering properly. (The area where the patch is being applied should be relatively hairless to facilitate better adhesion and lessen discomfort upon removal.) Do not apply any patch to burned, broken or severely irritated skin.
Step 2: Remove the patch from its protective packaging only when you are ready to apply it. (Once removed from its packaging and ex-posed to the air, the essential oils will begin to dissipate.)
Step 3: Remove the protective liner from the patch, trying to avoid touching the adhesive. Discard the liner so that it is out of reach of children or pets. Recycle if possible in your area.
Step 4: Apply the patch to the prepared patch site. Press the patch firmly into place with the heel of your hand for at least 10 – 15 seconds. Make sure that it sticks well, especially around the edges. Wear the patch for up to 24 hours. After 24 hours remove the patch, fold it in half with the adhesive side in and dispose of it out of reach of children and pets.
