Essential Oils

A hydrophobic, volatile oil (in other words, a substance that separates from water and evaporates quickly) gained through either steam or solvent extraction (much less desirable), and is a highly concentrated extraction of aromatic and chemical constituents of a plant.

Essential oils carry the physical properties of flowers and plants in a highly concentrated form. Through the different processes of distillation, the volatile constituents of the plant’s oil are extracted from its flowers, leaves, branches, or roots. Essential oils carry biologically active volatile compounds in a very concentrated form that exhibit therapeutic benefits in very small amounts.
The most common groups of chemical components found in essential oils are terpenes, alcohols, esters, ketones, aldehydes, and phenols. Most essential oils are antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. The antioxidant value in some essential oils alone is absolutely amazing,  just an ounce of Clove Oil has the antioxidant capacity of 450 lbs of carrots, 120 quarts of blueberries, or 48 gallons of beet juice.
There are three types of terpenes containes in essential oils: Phenylpropanoids (also called Hemiterpenes), Monoterpenes, and Sesquiterpenes.
Phenylpropanoids: Create conditions unfriendly to bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They are found in Clove (90%), Cassia (80%), Basil (75%), Cinnamon (73%), Oregano (60%), Anise (50%), Peppermint (25%). Most importantly,  phenylpropanoids clean the receptor sites on the cells. Without clean receptor sites, cells cannot communicate, and the body malfunctions, resulting in diseases.
Monoterpenes:  They are found in most essential oils. While offering a variety of healing properties, the most important ability of the monoterpenes is that they can reprogram miswritten information in the cellular memory. With improper coding in the DNA, cells malfunction and diseases result, such as cancer.
Sesquiterpenes: Found in Cedarwood (98%), Vetiver (97%), Spikenard (93%), Sandalwood (Aloes) 90%, Black Pepper (74%), Patchouli (71%), Myrrh (62%), and Ginger (59%), Frankincense (8%), these molecules deliver oxygen to your tissues. Viruses, bacteria, and cancer have a difficult time surviving in an oxygenated environment.  Sesquiterpenes can also erase or deprogram miswritten codes in the DNA.

Essential oils will not encourage “superbugs” 
Bacteria have proven that they can mutate to form different kinds of resistant strains of “superbugs” to adapt to the toxic antibiotic drugs. Essential oils have never created a superbug.  There have been hundreds of studies clinically proving their effectiveness against pretty much all bacteria, including MRSA and other superbugs.

Essential oils have been shown to have antiseptic properties against drug-resistant bacteria. According to research presented at the Society for General Microbiology’s spring meeting in Edinburgh, the essential oils of thyme and cinnamon were found to be particularly efficient antibacterial agents against a range of drug resistant Staphylococcus species which are extremely difficult to treat.

According to Science Daily, a Georgetown University research study found that the germ-killing properties of oregano oil were found as effective as most antibiotics — including vancomycin — for treatment of antibiotic-resistant superbugs such as E. coli, Salmonella, MRSA and flesh-eating bacteria.
Essential Oils address the causes of disease at a cellular level.  Essential oils can penetrate the cellular wall and dispel viruses, whereas antibiotics can only kill bacteria outside of the cellular wall. One drop of essential oils contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies. Just one molecule can open a receptor site in our bodies and communicate with the  DNA to alter cellular function.
Essential oils can enter the body by many avenues.
There are approximately 40 million trillion molecules in one drop of essential oil (that’s approximately 40,000 molecules for each cell in the average human body). They are so small, that they enter your body through the skin and go everywhere in your body.  Essential oils have an incredible ability to enter the body through the lungs and disperse throughout the body in a way that most other medicines are unable to achieve.
Essential oils can be diffused,  applied topically, added to your food, added to your bath. Unlike conventional drugs, essential oils  can work on all these interfaces at once. Essential oils can also be used topically to treat all sorts of conditions ranging from acne and allergies, to headaches and indigestion. Just a few drops of essential oil applied to the hands, wrists, feet, abdomen, or lower back can provide relief for a number of ailments.

 Essential oils can erase misinformation in our cells.

Essential oils have the ability to clean receptor sites on the surface of cells which allows for the proper communication between cells. Essential oils have the ability to erase incorrect DNA and then to correct it.

Essential Oils can change your nervous system biochemistry.
A Japanese study found that inhaling essential oils can modulate your sympathetic nervous system activity. Certain oils were found to be stimulating, while others were found to be calming. For example, according to Dr. Mercola:
Black pepper, fennel, and grapefruit oil caused a 1.5-to 2.5-fold increase in sympathetic nervous system activity (as measured by an increase in systolic blood pressure)
Rose and patchouli oil resulted in a 40 percent decrease in sympathetic nervous system activity
Pepper oil induced a 1.7-fold increase in plasma adrenaline concentration, while rose oil caused adrenaline to drop by 30 percent
Other oils have been shown to measurably decrease stress hormones—inhaling lavender and rosemary were shown to reduce cortisol levels.25
When purchasing essential oils, keep in mind that they are not the same as synthetic fragrance oils, which in most cases are not safe to use on the skin. Pure essential oils are always natural.
Many oils also need to be diluted with a “carrier oil”  such as coconut oil which serves as a base to add a few drops of essential oils to.

Always use a carrier oil when using essential oils on babies and children since their skin is much more sensitive to the effects.
Keep in mind that many essential oils on the market are not 100% pure and therapeutic; they may have potentially toxic extenders.
Some essential oils be applied directly to the skin, others need to be diluted with a carrier oil

Oils also have different molecular structures, and will result in various consistencies when mixed with essential oils.  “The molecule of jojoba is the same size as a hair follicle and so it absorbs deep into the skin. Other oils, like almond oil, have larger molecules that cover the skin’s surface.” That’s why you can apply jojoba and the outer layer of skin will still feel dry. Jenny opts for a blend of oils that will moisturize deeply while also leaving the skin feeling emollient.

All essential oils have a grounding (low), medium or uplifting (high) note. Citruses like lemon, lime and grapefruit are invigorating and found to relieve depression. Lavender helps with anxiety. Cedar and vetiver are grounding and calming. Rose and ylang ylang are aphrodiasics. Frankincense, known for cell regeneration, is even thought to help fight cancer. Each essential oil carries a benefit, and when combined, synergize to bring overall balance and wellness.
Things we want to let you know...
Check with a health professional before using essential oils if you have a serious medical condition or are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant. Do not ingest frankincense oil unless at the direction of a qualified aromatherapist. This oil is toxic when ingested in large quantities. Seek the advice of a health professional before topically applying essential oils to children.
When applying an essential oil for the first time, test one drop on a small area of skin first. Skin sensitivity differs from person to person. If your skin feels hot or turns red, apply a carrier oil to the area to dilute and plan to dilute that essential oil before reuse. Essential oils are not water soluble, so trying to wash them off with water is not effective.
