聽說香薰精華油可以食用,真的嗎?

I heard that essential oils can be eaten, is it true?

在外國,有些香薰治療師的確會使用香薰精華油當口服藥物般處方給他們的病人,不過那些治療師本身也必須已取得醫學資格的,才可開出藥方。在香港,一般的香薰治療師只會建議客人透過按摩、浸浴、冷敷、熱敷、塗抹及吸入的方式去使用精華油。

Some therapist overseas can use essential oils in prescription for taking orally. However in Hong Kong most therapist will suggest clients to use them in massage, bathing, inhaling, hot or cold compress.

使用蒸薰皿燃點香薰精華油時,香薰精華油會隨著蒸氣融合於空氣中。當我們呼吸時,吸入有精華油份子的空氣,那些精華油的份子便會透過鼻子內的嗅覺神經,傳到大腦皮質,從而改善情緒。
