Essential oils are made from the essence of various plants. They are, essentially, the distilled essence of the plant, and they focus the most potent compounds in the plant, meaning they can have a profound impact on the body’s main functions including the endocrine system, circulation, respiratory system, and digestive system. Because of the impact that they can have on hormones, they can change the way we feel and think, and even the way we see things.1
Some essential oils are powerful antiseptics. Some are powerful antibiotics. Each oil can impact our mood and our outlook. Essential oils have their own vibration, and each vibration relates to a specific shade or color. The color of an essential oil matters because it can again influence our mood.
Colors impact on our feeling of wellbeing,” some cheer us up, some signal danger. Colors and essential oils can influence our energy and can signify our outward health to others, meaning we are more or less attractive to people based on whether we are pale or vibrant.

If qualia exist (there are some who believe that it does, and some who do not), then it could be used as an explanation for the reactions that people have to essential oils and aromatherapy. Some people may smell one essential oil and find it pleasing, while others may smell the same aroma and intensely dislike it.
It is qualia which means that an aromatherapist cannot say with certainty that a specific blend that works for lifting one’s mood will be a blend that works for everyone. There are many oils that can be used for improving mood and the choice will depend on the individual’s preference.

You can modify your perception, and the way that you feel, through essential oils, meditation, ASMR and other experiences and many people do master this as a form of body hacking.
