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 of Christ.

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.

History

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.

Grade

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):

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.

Frequency

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 food.

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.

Oxygen

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 comes close!

Properties

  1. All Essential Oils have antibacterial properties.
  2. They reduce contamination.
  3. Many are antifungal, antiviral, antiparasitic, antimicrobial and are antioxidants.
  4. They contain negative ions, ozone and oxygenating molecules.
  5. It is believed that they take chemicals and metallics out of the air by breaking the molecular chain.
  6. Studies in France show that various essential oils neutralize the effects of radiation.
  7. 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.

  8. They can benefit on all levels - physical, emotional, and spiritual.
