Basic Facts about Essential Oils

  1. Essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune defense properties of plants.
  2. Some essential oil constituents are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the tissues of the skin.
  3. Essential oils are lipid soluble and are capable of penetrating cell walls, even if they have hardened because of an oxygen deficiency. In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the body withing 20 minutes and are then metabolized like other nutrients.
  4. 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.
  5. Essential oils are very powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals. They prevent all mutations, work as free radical scavengers, prevent fungus, and prevent oxidation in the cells.
  6. Essential oils are anti-bacterial , anti-cancerous, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-microbial, anti-tumoral, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, and antiseptic. Essential oils have been shown to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses while simultaneously restoring balance to the body.
  7. Essential oils may detoxify the cells and blood in the body
  8. 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.
  9. Essential oils are aromatic. When diffused, they provide air purification by:
    1. Removing metallic particles and toxins from the air.
    2. Increasing atmospheric oxygen
    3. Increasing ozone and negative ions in the area, which inhibits bacterial growth
    4. Destroying odors from mold, cigarettes, and animals
    5. Filling the air with a fresh aromatic scent
  10. Essential oils help promote emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. 
  11. Essential oils have a bio-electrical frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herb, 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.
