Antioxidants in Illness or Wellness – Essential Oils can Help

In Aromatherapy by Debra Reis

Antioxidants can be beneficial in wellness and with certain illnesses. According to Eaton (2007), diseases that cause tissue trauma can compromise the body’s blood chemistry and require supplementation with antioxidants, amino acids, and trace elements. Oxidative stresses lead to DNA damage which has a correlation with the aging process as well as implications in the progress of some malignancies. Antioxidants and other nutritional supplements can help to repair damaged DNA.

Many essential oils act like antioxidants. Some examples include Clove and Thyme essential oils. Thyme essential oil is being used in some supplements to promote an antioxidant effect. Both Clove and Thyme essential oils are being researched for their benefits in cancer care.
