Essential Oils: Mans First Form of Medicine
What are Essential Oils:
Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, roots, stems, flowers, and other parts of plants. Not only can the oils lift your mood, calm your senses, and elicit powerful emotional responses, but they also offer you medicinal and therapeutic benefits.
Essential oils are one of the world’s great, untapped resources. Essential oils are extracts from plants that are fifty to seventy times more potent than herbs, and they treat the root causes of your body’s problems rather than simply masking the symptoms. They provide a natural, holistic approach to self care. Many have powerful cleansing properties and are naturally antimicrobial. Essential oils are able to get inside the cell and are effective against viruses with no harmful side effects.
Do they really work and are they safe?
Essential Oils trump pharmaceutical drugs in safety and effectiveness because they are effective against BOTH viruses and bacteria. With the unique ability to penetrate the cell membrane, essential oils attack viruses that reside on the inside of cells, as well bacteria that attach to the outside of a cell. And, unlike chemical drugs, essential oils do not remain in the body. They leave no toxins behind and may even detoxify the cells and blood in the body. But, that doesn’t mean that they are weak or ineffective in helping the body heal. For example, the essential oil of oregano is twenty-six times more powerful as an antiseptic than phenol, which is the active ingredient in many commercial cleaning chemicals. And one drop of peppermint essential oil is equal to twenty-eight cups of peppermint tea!
Essential oils embody the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune-strengthening properties of plants. The very substances that protect the plant, are present and active in the oils to protect us! These complex chemical constituents make essential oils antibacterial, anticancer, antifungal, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antitumor, antiparasitic, antiviral, and antiseptic. They have been scientifically tested and have been shown to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses while simultaneously restoring balance to the body. In fact, do to their small molecular size, essential oils can quickly penetrate and affect every cell of the body within twenty minutes and then be metabolized like other nutrients! They are truly amazing
