I have always known that essential oils could be a powerful natural healing tool, but it wasn’t until I heard an amazing testimony involving a life threatening disease that I decided to jump in and do research on the health and beauty benefits of essential oils.
I was blown away to learn that there have been over 18,000 studies done on essential oils. You can look up these studies on pubmed.gov which is the National Library of Medicine. You can type in essential oils or any individual oil and find so many studies.
Essential oils go back to the bible time and beyond, making them the oldest medicine known to mankind.
I use doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils with my family and in my Traditional Naturopath practice because they are the only essential oil brand that is not only 3rd party tested for purity and contaminants every step in the processing, these results are published.
I know that these oils are the purest on the planet, and as a Mother and Health Practitioner this is extremely important.
If an oil is not pure and contaminant free, it will not do what it is supposed to do.
Certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils are non invasive, toxic free, promote optimal health, are accessible to everyone, and most importantly are user friendly for the average person.
The field of Traditional Naturopathy believes in allowing the body to heal itself through noninvasive modalities including, good nutrition, hydration, sleep, movement, emotional wellness and elimination. My job as a Traditional Naturopath is to educate my clients on each of these.
Essential oils fit in perfectly with the noninvasive natural approach to health and wellness.
What exactly are Essential Oils
Essential oils are concentrated aromatic plant extracts that contain 100’s of natural compounds. These compounds are found in the seeds, root, stems, flowers, bark, rind and leaves of plants. The compounds are extracted from plants and distilled for health benefits.
The aromatic compounds provide complex and versatile abilities to combat threats without building up resistance.
Essential oils support health at the cellular level, promote full body relaxation and can calm and stabilize emotions.
What are the Properties of Essential Oils?
They are naturally;
- Anti Bacterial
- Anti Viral
- Anti Fungal
- Boost immune systems
- Improve Moods
- And much more
How do you use Essential Oils?
Essential Oils can be used Aromatically in a diffuser.
Put a drop or two in the palm of your hands, rub together, and then cup your hands over your mouth and nose and breathe deeply to open airways and affect moods.
Essential Oils can be applied topically to the bottom of your feet or on affected areas to give direct relief or to support specific needs.
Many Essential oils can be taken internally by dropping in water, placing under the tongue or into a capsule.
Caution: You must use certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils when taking them internally. Most essential oils on the market today are not pure, and therefore you will not find a “supplement fact” box on the label. doTERRA essential oils are certified pure therapeutic grade and will have a “supplement fact” box on the oils that can be taken internally.
Although essential oils have been around for thousands of years and are considered “nature’s medicine”, it wasn’t until recent years that science has been able to understand what makes them so special.
Scientist now know that essential oils are composed of tiny molecules, all less than 500 atomic mass units (amu) that can penetrate every cell. This enables the essential oils to bring nutrition into the cell and carry waste out. They even penetrate the blood brain barrier.
Essential oils placed anywhere on the skin are transdermal and can reach every part of your body within minutes.
One drop of essential oil contains 40 Million Trillion molecules. This number is so big, that if you wrote it out you would write the number 4 with 19 zeros after it.
The human body contains 100 trillion cells. So one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in the body with 400,000 molecules.
*The phenol molecules in essential oils create conditions where unfriendly viruses and bacteria cannot live.
These phenols clean the receptor sites on the cell. When the receptor sites on cells are not clean, the cells cannot communicate and sickness can set in.
*The monoterpenes found in most essential oils have been shown to reprogram miss written information in the cellular memory.
If cellular memory is miss written, cells malfunction and diseases, including life threatening diseases can set in.
*Sesquiterpene molecules found in essential oils deliver oxygen molecules to the cells.
Oxygenated cells are vital for beautiful skin, hair and nails. The most famous quote on oxygen in regards to health is attributed to Otto Warburg. In fact he won the nobel prize for discovering that low oxygen was a characteristic for today’s most dreaded disease. As a Traditional Naturopath I always advise my clients to consume lots of herbs and sprouts because they have the highest frequency of any food. Keep in mind that the higher the frequency of a food, the more beneficial it is.
Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Washington invented new equipment to measure the frequency in food and people. Using a Mega Hertz (MHz) calculation he was able to determine the frequency of food, essential oils and even disease.
Frequencies of Food
Fresh herbs and sprouts have a frequency of 20-27 MHz
Fruits and Vegetables 5-10 MHz
Meat 2 MHz
Processed Food 0 MHz
Frequencies of People
Healthy Human Body 71-90 MHz
Cold symptoms 58 MHz
Flu symptoms 57 MHz
Candida 55 MHz
Epstein Barr Virus 52 MHz
Cancer can begin at 42 MHz
Death process begins at 25 MHz
In a series of experiments Tainio discovered that the frequencies of essential oils are between 52 – 320 MHz, the highest of all known substances.
He also discovered that the frequencies of essential oils are affected by our thoughts.
Negative thoughts can lower the frequency of an essential oil by 12 MHz, while positive thoughts raised them by 10 MHz.
This really proves that our thoughts are powerful. It also explains the ancient biblical religious tradition of receiving essential oils in an attitude of prayer.
When I use essential oils, which is every day, I say a silent prayer of thanks for the essential oil I am about to use.
Dr. David Stewart says “One of the most important healing modalities of the oils is their ability to lift our bodily frequencies to levels where disease cannot exist.”
Here are some of my favorite Health and Beauty Essential Oil Protocols
For Coffee Drinkers.
I love my one cup of coffee in the morning. Yes I use organic coffee. Unfortunately coffee has been shown to lower your frequency. Just holding a cup of coffee can lower your frequency by 8 MHz. Taking a sip of coffee can lower your frequency even more, by 14 MHz. This is most likely due to the acidic and dehydrating nature of coffee.
There is good news. Once you finish your coffee, take your favorite essential oil and put a drop or two in your palms. Rub your palms together, cup your mouth and nose and take 10 deep breaths. Tanio’s frequency technology shows that this instantly brings your frequency back to normal levels.
Simple Daily Detox
The moment I wake up, I put a drop or two of lemon essential oil in 8oz of room temperature water and drink. This is a convenient and safe way to gently detox every day. Lemon essential oil comes from the rind of the lemon, which is where the majority of the vitamin and the molecule Limone is found.
Lemon essential oil contains 68% d-limonene, (lemon juice does not) a super antioxidant that has been shown to cleanse harmful chemicals from the liver.
Lemon essential oil is absorbed easier than lemon juice and can increase energy levels and aid in mental clarity.
I even use my Lemon essential oil to flavor sauces and salad dressings.
It takes 50-70 lemons to make 1 15ml bottle of Lemon Essential Oil.
Super Charge Your Skin Care
I add essential oils to my skin moisturizer.
My favorite essential oils for supercharging my skin care include:
Frankincense essential oil which is known to help reduce blemishes, appearance of pores, prevent wrinkles and tighten skin.
Lavender essential oil can help prevent oxidative stress which leads to aging.
Sandalwood essential oil helps soothe, tighten and cleanse the skin.
Yarrow Pom has powerful anti aging properties for the skin.
DNA Repair Protocol
Normally, when the DNA of a cell becomes damaged, (which can be caused by toxins, stress, poor diet, etc.) the cell commits apoptosis, also known as cell death. Sometimes the cell does not commit apoptosis and continues to replicate with damaged DNA. This is not a good thing for your long term health.
The good news is that Frankincense has been shown to cause cells with damaged DNA to go ahead and commit apoptosis. This makes Frankincense a powerful anti aging, rejuvenating essential oil.
Every night as I am crawling into bed I rub a few drops of Frankincense essential oil on the soles of my feet, which are very porous. The essential oil reaches every cell in the body in a matter of minutes because blood flows up from the feet to the heart and circulates.
Keep in mind that the body goes into repair and restore mode while you sleep, so this is the perfect time to support this process with essential oils.
Burns and Sunburns
Lavender essential oil is a staple in my kitchen and bathroom. For burns, Lavender essential oil immediately stops the death of skin cells the moment it is applied. For sunburns I take a teaspoon of coconut oil and add 2 – 3 drops each of lavender and peppermint essential oils and apply.
For Anxiety and Overwhelm
I carry Lavender Essential Oil in my purse at all times for those moments I may feel uptight, anxious or overwhelmed. Taking 10 deep breaths of Lavender can instantly reset the autonomic nervous system calming anxiety and overwhelm.
I breathe it directly from the bottle or place a drop or two in the palm of my hands, rub them together and cup my mouth and nose and take 10 deep breaths. I also like to put 10 drops in my bath at night for a totally relaxing experience.
There are many ways to use essential oils, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
