Every cell, organ, and tissue in the body performs its function using enzymes, receptors, and other proteins, which work together to break down, build up, and rearrange the chemical bonds in biological molecules. Essential oils also operate under the principles of chemistry. In fact, the chemical makeup of essential oils is what gives them the ability to affect the body’s systems.
