How to Harness The Healing Power of Essential Oils
As everything is vibration, when we are ill we need to rebalance that vibration. Essential Oils are a powerful tool to do just that.
Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients.
Essential Oils have an energy signature and vibration from nature and have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.
The ancient knowledge that Essential Oils hold is a huge benefit to our modern culture and should be embraced as a powerful therapy, and they are indeed used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications.
A powerful wellness alternative to mainstream medicine
It is important to note that finding a reputable company that holds the highest regard for these substances and is knowledgeable of the proper ways to extract these essences should be used.
Buying products through a third party online vendor should be avoided. There are often products that have been diluted with other carrier oils or simply are not pure.
Synthetic scents have been used for decades in candles, perfumes and other scented products.
The vibration of a synthetic scent is not the same as a pure essential oil!
Synthetic fragrances are often irritants and can cause or aggravate diseases or imbalances, such as:
- Hormonal imbalances
For this reason, choosing pure essential oil scents is the most natural choice, and honors our body, nature and our planet as a living whole.
Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint are popular oils to start with.
Essential Oils…nature’s aromatherapy
The balance of nature has relied on the aroma and other physical properties of plants to speak to each other.
The fact that bees and other insects are drawn to the aroma of a flower is just one example of this. Nature holds a deep knowledge of this balance, and it is an honor to harvest the properties of essential oils to further enhance our health and wellbeing.
3 different ways to enjoy the benefits of Essential Oils
The inhalation of the vapors of essential oils immediately travels to the limbic system of the brain where they have a profound effect on moods, emotions, alertness and other functions controlled by this central part of the brain.
Inhalation allows the antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties of the oils to be delivered directly to the respiratory organs. This is done by direct inhalation from the bottle, inhaling from a cup or cotton ball or adding to a water spritz bottle and sprayed in the air.
It is also done by diffusion from a diffuser, which circulates very small, aerosolized oil into the air and is a wonderful way to refresh a room.
Due to the fact that our largest organ, the skin is very permeable, so topical application allows the oil to quickly enter the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. Applying directly to the area affected is intuitive and reflexology points on the bottom of the feet are very effective. Massage, compresses, warm baths all enhance the benefits from the absorption of the healing qualities of essential oils.
ADDITIONAL TIPS & CONSIDERATIONS FOR TOPICAL APPLICATION OF ESSENTIAL OILS
- Less is more and is cost effective.
- Oils can and should be diluted especially for babies and children.
- Using carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil that has no smell is the best way to aromatically maintain the fragrance.
- Other oils such as jojoba and almond have some natural fragrance, should be organic and pure as well.
Internal uses provide immediate help for oral and gastrointestinal issues. A drop of oil under the tongue, in a cup of tea, in a rinse or gargle or in a capsule are some of the ways to use internally.
Caution is strongly advised on what oils are proper to use internally as some should not be used this way.
Utilizing a trained practitioner and scientific resources from a reputable company is always a good idea. Just ask me if you have any questions or concerns!
