The thyroid gland is very important organ in human body. It is the largest gland in the endocrine system located above the collarbone in the anterior neck. Thyroid gland is responsible for circulation of calcium in the body and for regulating the metabolism.

Many people ignore the thyroid until its function is seriously disrupted and when the production of the hormones is imbalanced than it has negative impact on the body.

The uniqueness of the endocrine system is in the delivery of hormones to targeted tissues and organs.Essential oils have the same system of delivery in order to improve the function of the particular gland.
