Today we are going to talk about Linalool and the top 5 essential oils with Linalool that use this to relax the nervous system and non-skeletal muscle.
What Is Linalool?
According to Wikipedia, Linalool is:
refers to two enantiomers of a naturally occurring terpenealcohol found in many flowers and spiceplants. These have multiple commercial applications, the majority of which are based on its pleasant scent (floral, with a touch of spiciness). It has other names such as β-linalool, linalyl alcohol, linaloyl oxide, p-linalool, allo-ocimenol, and 3,7-dimethyl-1,6-octadien-3-ol.
How Does Linalool Affect Our Body?
Studies have shown that linalool can have a big effect on the body. The main focus in using Linalool is to battle the effects of cancer. What I have learned is that…
- it’s in a few different essential oils.
- the diseases that there are some studies on are all about some form of cancer.
- The best immediate feature is its smell.
Linalool does have a great scent and makes sense that it would be used in the cologne and perfume industry – but I don’t have any evidence supporting this logic. However, we do know that essential oils are and have been used as cologne and perfume. This makes the most sense to use essential oils with linalool. A natural product that incorporates natural compounds.
How Does Linalool Affect Our Muscular System?
If Linalool is good to have what would the effects be on other parts of the body such as the blood, or brain, or the cardiovascular system? According to the Doterra Sciences blog, it makes your muscles smoother and able to function seamlessly during daily activity. If you have any sort of snag on your muscle (sorry don’t know the medical term), it causes your muscle to lose function. I believe this is where we get muscle knots. (purely a guess, but makes sense)
We just don’t think much about linalool. Nor are we asking the question, why it’s good for us to have in our bodies. But after researching it a little and showing you the references that I have found. We know that linalool is a good thing and that essential oils with linalool are doing more good than we previously knew.
