WHAT'S AN ESSENTIAL OIL?

Essential Oils are the aromatic, volatile liquids distilled from plants. The essential oil can be obtained from the roots, seeds, shrub, flowers, leaves, and trees and bring health and healing to the body. Each essential oil consists of hundreds of different and unique chemical compounds. Essential Oils were actually man’s first means of wellness dating back to 5000 B.C. found in Egyptian hieroglyphs. Essential oils are very complex and extremely potent, which is why they are able to reach every part of our bodies on a cellular level. In fact, within minutes of using, or breathing in, an essential oil, they can be found in every cell of your body!

The fragrance of the oils works with the limbic system in the brain where emotions are stored and can help relax and clear the mind, as well as release emotional trauma (this emotional stuff is huge for overall wellness).

BENEFITS OF ESSENTIAL OILS

Essential Oils benefit your health, but they are not used as medications! They are natural substances that help your body do what it was genetically designed to do. This is why when using essential oils it’s encouraged to be look at it as a lifestyle choice… the more often you use them the more your body is supported, just like exercise! This way of thinking takes practice because we are so trained in a Big Pharm way of thinking.

 

Our whole lives we have been trained to ‘pop a pill’ every 12-24 hours (without exceeding more than 6 in a day!) to feel better, the problem with this is that those pills are only putting a band-aid over the problem instead of teaching the body to do what it’s designed to do naturally.

  1. Essential Oils can bypass digestion - Unlike most things we use, essential oils do not have to go through the digestive tract to be absorbed. Why is this important? When we take something orally…think a vitamin, food etc; our body has to break it down via digestion before we gain the benefits from absorption. The majority of what we put in our body is never actually absorbed, therefore we aren’t gaining any of its benefits. Using essential oils, either aromatically or topically, allows your body to gain the maximum absorption by skipping the whole digestion process.
     

  2. Essential Oils are fat soluble - What in the world does this mean and why is it important? When you put a drop of essential oil on your skin and rub it in, it disappears... there’s no oily residue left over! This is because underneath your skin there is a little fatty bi-layer that soaks it right up and shoots it right into the bloodstream so it can go to work. It takes only 20 minutes to get an essential oil into your body, into your bloodstream and start taking care of business. So when you feel like you’re not operating at optimal level it can be a good idea to apply essential oils continuously throughout the day to keep in good health.
     

  3. Essential Oils cross the blood-brain barrier - The blood-brain barrier is a literal barrier, or coating, around the nervous system and brain to keep toxins out. The particles of essential oils are so very tiny, smaller than that of a protein, that they are able to cross through the blood-brain barrier, through the blood vessels and capillaries and drive themselves right into your body quicker and more completely
     

  4. Essential Oils work off frequencies - Did you know that everything in this world has a frequency? Every plant, food, water, cell, even the air we breathe… these all contribute our level of wellness.

    • A healthy human body frequency is 62+ MHz

    • Illness starts at 57-60 MHz

    • Our bodies are receptive to cancer at 42 MHz

    • Death begins at 25 MHz.

    • Everything we do or come in contact with impacts our frequencies either positively or negatively. Taking a simple sip of coffee can lower your frequency by 14 MHz, having negative thoughts decrease our frequency by up to 12 MHz, having a positive thought can increase our frequency by 10 MHz, raw real foods are the only food that help raise our frequency. One of the most important functions of essential oils is the ability to raise body’s frequency to a level where disease cannot exist. The frequencies of essential oils range from 52-320 MHz, so load up on these bad boys and keep your body working properly!
       

  5. Essential Oils are adaptogenic - This means that they can change and adapt to what the body needs. It does for my body what my body needs, and for your body what your body needs. Let’s say that we open a bottle of Lavender together. For me, it might make me calm and sleepy, whereas you might get a burst of energy! This happens because the oil is adapting and doing what your body needs it to do!
     

  6. Essential Oils work in Therapy Localization - Every square inch of skin on your body contains at least 19,000 nerve endings, so we need to treat them right and help them along as much as possible. Using Therapy Localization is an easy way to do this. When you touch a part of your body it automatically sends a message to your brain ‘hey pay attention to this spot.’ So when you take an essential oil and apply it to, let’s say your thyroid, you’re sending a message to your brain to focus here. When your brain receives this message it automatically sends more blood rushing to the area, opening up the blood vessels in that area, and in turn, turns the nerve endings on, allowing the essential oil to more quickly be absorbed into the body and start to work faster! How cool is the human body?
     

  7. Essential Oils clean receptor sites - Essential oils are made up of chemical constitutes called phenols, monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. These naturally clean and repair receptor sites on our cells! When there is junk on a receptor site, the brain cannot send a signal to that part of the body to tell it what to do and the brain cannot process the information that your body is receiving! Ever touch a hot stove and quickly realize ‘it’s hot’ and pull your hand away? That’s because your receptor sites in that area are clean and can quickly send the message to your brain to remove your hand. On the reverse, someone who touches a hot stove but doesn’t quickly remove their hand has damage to those receptor sites.
