The recent resurgence in popularity of essential oils can be witnessed almost everywhere. Everyone knows someone who is selling essential oils. And although they all are passionate about the essential oils they represent, many purveyors of these essential oils have not been thoroughly educated on how essential oils work, and how to use them safely. Just because an essential oil is 100% pure and natural, does not mean that it cannot harm you.
Here is the real deal about essential oils. Validated, not only from thousands of years of use throughout the world, modern science is now documenting what we as intuitive human beings have already innately known. In fact, when one comes up close and personal to an essential oil, they immediately become “hooked”. They are instantaneously enticed because they are experiencing the profound effects of an essential oil on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic.
The benefits of essential oils are far too numerous to mention in this venue. Plain and simple, essential oils are the life force of the plant. They are the part of the plant that protects it from environmental elements including weather, insects, fungus and disease. The same way these plant oils protect the plants is the same way they can protect you. Essential oils can be truly powerful allies in creating and maintain a vibrant, healthy life.
Here are my top 5 reasons why essential oils truly do rock:
- Essential oils have a very small molecular structure, so they are extremely concentrated. One drop of essential oil contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules. Numerically that is a 4 with 19 zeros after it: 40,000,000,000,000,000,000 Wow! Since we have 100 trillion cells in our bodies, one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 40,000 molecules. And since essential oils molecular structure is so small they penetrate the skin and act on the internal organs of the body. When applied to the skin, within 20 minutes of being placed anywhere on the human body, essential oils will penetrate every cell within the body. In fact they can even cross through cellular walls!
- Essential oils are chemically complex. A single drop of essential oil can have hundreds of different chemical constituents all working synergistically together to provide just as many therapeutic benefits. This synergistic symphony of nature cannot be replicated and produces no side effects. To date, modern medicine has only been able to extract one of these chemo types, conduct studies, and then create a drug that treats the symptom, rather than the cause or whole, and often with many side effects.
- Because of the many of the chemo types found in essential oils, essential oils can address many illnesses, injuries and disease conditions. Essential oils, some of which can pass the blood-brain barrier, can even be used as a tool to release past traumas and patterned behaviors, and rewrite “our story” with new desired behavior.
- Essential oils have the capacity to change the electrical frequency of the body. The electrical frequency of essential oils range between 52 and 320 Hz. They have the highest frequency of any substance known to man. Because they are living substances, their frequency is harmonic with the human frequency. When essential oils come into contact with our bodies, the frequency of our bodies become raised to a degree that we become inhospitable hosts to pathogenic organisms. Science has now proven that the higher frequency we as humans resonate at, is the degree to what health can be realized. Higher Frequency = Better Health.
- Essential oils can protect us from air-borne microorganisms. Simply by diffusing essential oils into the air, you can not only realize the physical, mental and emotional benefits of the aroma they release, but you are also killing air borne microorganisms. So effective, than many hospitals are now diffusing essential oils, not only to reduce stress, improve performance, but also to protect patients and workers alike from harmful air borne bacteria and viruses.
