Q. How do you classify essential oils?
With 600 active smell receptor genes thats (at least) 600! (shriek, 600x599x598 etc) mathematical possibilities of mental let alone cellular perception beyond relaxing and stimulatiing. Somehow certain plant families navigated their way through that to provide us in evolutionary terms with aromatic materials that would do us good and which we would find visually and even emotionally pleasing while at the same time providing a differant visual and fruit protocol to insects . That really is amazing.
Intuition is important too in making sense of this complex psychological landscape of the individual meeting the complex psychological landscape of the oil. Valerie Worwood had a good go at this. The 'bubbles' and 'crunches' in the chinese meridians may not come naturally to western minds but they are an excellent diagnostic tool.
