There are nine main pulse points in the human body placed from head to toe. The main ones I tend to work with are the temporal artery (at the temples), the carotid pulse (below the ear and under the jawline) and the radial pulse (at your wrists). The reason I recommend rolling the aromatherapy oils at your pulse points is because this is where your blood pumps closest to the skin which means a faster absorption of the essential oils and quicker therapeutic benefits.
Anything that is applied to our skin is absorbed by our bloodstream (that’s why you used to get told off for writing on your hand in school.) Applying the roll on therapist’s to your pulse points means the essential oils are absorbed into the body and travel around via the bloodstream, delivering each essential oils specific benefit to the body’s systems and organs.
