Why do essential oils work?
Authentic essential oils are chemical components that derive from formations by secondary metabolites of plants studied to provide healing properties to mammals and other organisms, known for thousands of years to people. The compounds, such as monoterpene hydrocarbons and phenols affect neurons and other receptors that will send specific messages to the brain. They are nonselective components, meaning they do not target specific cells, and in turn they are effective in a wide range of ways, such as anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, antidepressant, and many other therapeutic properties. Essential oils are mostly safe and nontoxic for humans to use due to coexisting evolutions of plants and people. People have built tolerance for most of plants’ toxic compounds, and those compounds in turn can be used for medicinal and therapeutic purposes when we fall ill, mentally or physically.

What are traditional Thai inhalers?
Called "ya dom," literally "medicine inhaler," Thai inhalers are a cultural phenomenon and can be found all over Thailand. Often used by drivers and party goers, the inhalers are infused with menthol and other stimulating compounds of herbs and spices that provide heightened energy, mask outside odor, and clear nasal passages. Some come as sticks, and others come with gauze-wrapped natural herbs and spices. The concept has been around for thousands of years in Thailand, and it has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
