Introduction to Essential Oils
Essential Oils were mankind's first medicine. According to the translation
of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and
physicians were using essential oils thousands of years before the time
Essential Oils contain oxygenating molecules which transport the nutrients
to the cells of the body. Without oxygen, nutrients cannot be assimilated,
leaving us nutritionally depleted. Clinical research shows that Essential
Oils may help to create an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus,
fungus, etc., cannot live. Science is only now rediscovering these healing
substances that were used in ancient times.
Essential Oils may be diffused into the atmosphere at home or work.
The diffused oils are dispersed into a micro-mist that stays suspended
in the air for several hours. The oils may also be worn like perfume or
cologne. Certain oils and oil blends are great for massage while others
may be added to your bath water to help sooth away stress and tension.
Negative attitudes and emotions create toxins in the body. Teaching
ancient practices of cleansing the body, overcoming emotional barriers
and negative attitudes should be our focus today in order to prevent disease
and create a healthy lifestyle.

According to the translation of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese
manuscripts, priests and physicians were using oils thousands of years
before the time of Christ. There are 188 references to oils in the Bible.
Some precious oils, such as frankincense, myrrh, galbanum, rosemary, hyssop,
cassia, cinnamon, and spikenard, were used for anointing and healing of
the sick. Biblical prophets recognized the use of essential oils as a protection
for their bodies against the ravages of disease. The wise men brought the
oils of frankincense and myrrh to the Christ child. Clinical research now
shows that frankincense oil contains very high immune-stimulating properties.
The ancient process of oil distillation is a delicate and precise art that
has been almost forgotten. Science is just now rediscovering the healing
substances of essential oils that were used in ancient times and beginning
to acknowledge their value. Our company is helping to bring history to life
through research and essential oil formulations to restore this ancient
knowledge to our modern world.
There are three grades of essential oils, Grade A, B and C. Over 90% of
the essential oils in this country are of the lower grades. Only Grade
A oils carry frequency, and have the full health benefits. Most oils in
this country are cut with carrier oils (can go rancid), alcohol, cheaper
cost and quality oils, and even chemicals and synthetics.
The following quote concerning quality of essential oils comes from
the book Alternative Medicine compiled by the Burton Goldberg
Group, 1994 (page 58):
"Selecting essential oils from the many different offerings in the
marketplace can be confusing. Vast differences in price exist for what
seems to be one and the same oil. Inquiries are practically always met
with a universal assurance that the oil is absolutely pure and natural.
This is not always the case. Many suppliers do not verify the purity of
the oils they distribute. When purchasing essential oils, it is important
to take note of their purity, quality, and price.
Each and every oil is tested in France by the top experts in the field
to guarantee quality. Dr. Gary Young, N.D., company President,
personally visits the fields the botanicals are grown on to verify
they are grown organically. He travels around the world to find the finest
quality available. All our individual single oils are sold "neat", no carrier
oil, nothing but pure, uncut essential oil.
""Pure essential oils are expensive," according to Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt,
Director of the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy. "Often one thousand
pounds of plant are needed to produce one pound of essence. This process
involves manpower to cultivate and harvest the plant, and the energy cost
for distillation. Because of the variations in these factors, the prices
of essential oils can differ. If every oil in a line carries the same price
tag, this is a sure sign of large-scale homogenization and adulteration
for the production of sheer fragrance oils as opposed to essential oils.
""Essential oils should be called 'essential oils'. If names are used
that sound evasive such as 'pure botanical perfume' or 'pure fragrance
essence', this is an indication that the supplier is aware that the oils
are not true essential oils," adds Dr. Schnaubelt.
"Oil essences are most commonly produced to create fragrances and to
process food. The quality requirements of these oils are substantially
lower than those used for aromatherapy. Companies that concern themselves
solely with aromatherapy will go to great lengths to ensure purity.
"While pure, natural essential oils may seem expensive, the small amounts
will go far, and this makes them cost-effective. In contrast, the effectiveness
of lower grade oils, or oils that are diluted, drastically diminishes over
time due to a loss of their essential properties.
"The best way to purchase essential oils for aromatherapy applications
is from a supplier who specializes in essential aromatherapy oils."
Essential oils have a bio-electrical frequency. Frequency is defined as
a measureable rate of electrical energy that is constant between any two
points. Everything has an electrical frequency. Essential oils contain
a frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herbs and
For example, measured in hertz, food has a frequency from 0-15Hz, dry
herbs from 15-22Hz, and fresh herbs from 20-27Hz. Essential oils start
at 52Hz and go as high as 320Hz, which is the frequency of rose oil. A
healthy body, from head to foot typically has a frequency ranging from
62 to 78Hz, while disease begins at 58Hz.
According to Dr. Royal R. Rife, every disease has a frequency. However,
a substance with a higher frequency will destroy a disease of lower frequency.
Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency
of any substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease,
bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., cannot live.
Disease cannot exist in an oxygen rich environment. Oxygen is needed for
assimilation. Oxygen is the delivery agent which carries the nutrients
in the blood. In order for cells to take on nutrients, the nutrients have
to be able to pass through the cell wall in order to get to the nucleus
where assimilation takes place. The cell wall begins to mutate (harden)
with as little as 1 % drop in oxygen in the serum around the cell. There
are 5 stages of mutation leading to the development of degenerative diseases.
Essential oils are catalysts. They are lipid soluble and can immediately
penetrate the cell wall to bring oxygen and nutrients into the cell. Jean
Claude Lapraz, MD made the statement that essential oils may have the potential
to increase cellular oxygen by 21%. Independent laboratory studies showed
that hydrogen peroxide had an oxygen potential to increase by 9.5%. Essential
oils carry oxygen, ozone and negative ions. No other component of a plant
All Essential Oils have antibacterial properties.
They reduce contamination.
Many are antifungal, antiviral, antiparasitic, antimicrobial and are antioxidants.
They contain negative ions, ozone and oxygenating molecules.
It is believed that they take chemicals and metallics out of the air by
breaking the molecular chain.
Studies in France show that various essential oils neutralize the effects
The essential oils travel via the olfactory nerve stimulating an emotional
and psychological response that is believed to be responsible for releasing
genetic blue printing from the cells, thus releasing emotional trauma.
They can benefit on all levels - physical, emotional, and spiritual.
