Pure essential oils offer many benefits. It took me a while to understand how powerful essential oils are when you use them topically, aromatically or internally. Since I believe and know that plants heal I finally realized the power of essential oils when they were described in this fashion, “essential oils are plants concentrated so that the oils are 40 to 70 times more powerful than the plant!”
According to the “Reference Guide for Essential Oils” written by Connie and Alan Higley the benefits of pure essential oils are:
- Essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune defense properties of plants.
- Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the skin.
- Essential oils are lipid-soluble and are capable of penetrating cell walls, even if they have hardened because of oxygen deficiency. In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes and then be metabolized like other nutrients.
- Essential oils contain oxygen molecules which help to transport nutrients to the starving human cells.
- Because a nutritional deficiency is an oxygen deficiency, disease begins when the cells lack the oxygen for proper nutrient assimilation. By providing the needed oxygen, essential oils also work to stimulate the immune system.
- Essential oils are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals.
- Antioxidants prevent all mutations, work as free radical scavengers, prevent fungus, and prevent oxidation in the cells.
- Essential oils are antibacterial, anti-cancerous, antifungal, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antitumor, anti-parasitic, antiviral, and antiseptic. Essential oils have been shown to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses, while simultaneously restoring balance to the body.
- Essential oils may detoxify the cells and blood in the body.
- Essential oils containing sesquiterpenes have the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier, enabling them to be effective in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
- Essential oils are aromatic. When diffused they provide air purification by:
- Removing metallic particles and toxins from the air
- Increasing atmospheric oxygen
- Increasing ozone and negative ions in the area, which inhibits bacterial growth
- Destroying odor from mold, cigarettes and animals
- Filling the air with a fresh aromatic scent
- Essential oils help promote emotional, physical, and spiritual healing.
- Essential oils have a bioelectrical frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herbs, food, and even the human body. Clinical research has shown that essential oils can quickly raise the frequency of the human body, restoring it to its normal healthy level.
With all of these benefits you may want to add essential oils to your life. These benefits are only available in pure therapeutic grade oils so do your homework before you buy.
Jean Sumner has pursued an interest in wellness her entire life. An avid runner, she is passionate about exercise, eating healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Jean was diagnosed with cancer in May, 2009 this only served to fuel the flames of her passions and encouraged her to learn more about wellness. This diagnosis actually led to the beginning of World Wellness Education with a mission of “Teaching the world about wellness — one story at a time.”
As Jean pursued alternative methods of treating cancer she met countless individuals who had great stories to tell regarding how nutrition, spirituality and exercise helped them to overcome their various illnesses. Since these stories were moving, motivating and timely she thought that each of these stories may make a difference in others’ lives. With the knowledge that we learn from stories more quickly than other teaching methods an organization was born in hopes to make a difference in the well-being of every individual on the planet.
Prior to Jean’s involvement with World Wellness Education she was a bank manager. With the significant change that was going on in the banking industry, Jean learned that her staff did much better with change if they took it one step at a time. She has now transferred this learning to the Wellness industry and created small weekly changes that one can make which will lead up to a significant amount of positive change by the end of the year.
