Essential oils are aromatic liquid substances extracted from specific species of trees, roots, leaves, fruits, grasses and flowers. They are the substance that gives the plant its characteristic odor. Essential oils are to plants like blood is to our bodies. These concentrated oils are far more valuable to humankind, than just pleasing aromas. They have been used throughout the centuries as remedies and at one time were considered more valuable than gold.
The benefits of pure therapeutic-grade essential oils are many:
Essential oils are so small in molecular size and lipid soluble that they can quickly penetrate the tissues of the skin. In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes. They metabolize like other nutrients and do not accumulate.
Essential oils contain oxygen molecules which help to transport nutrients to starving human cells and help oxygenate our cells.
Essential oils may detoxify the cells and blood in the body.
Essential oils are very powerful antioxidants that create an unfriendly environment for damaging free radicals. They 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, antitumoral, antiparasitic, antiviral, and antiseptic. Essential oils have been shown to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses while simultaneously restoring physiological balance to the body!
Essential oils have a bio-electrical 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.
As you can see pure essential oils are extremely powerful natural healing agents. Many conditions respond to these wonderful fragrant oils. Acne, burns, insomnia, depression, indigestion, sprains/strains, dandruff, and headaches to name a few.
Apart from being able to heal and treat various ailments, essential oils provide a natural alternative to toxic cosmetics. Throw away your toxic perfumes and colognes and find healthy essential oils. You can even create your own lotions and creams that are safe healthy alternatives.
Essential oils also have many applications around the house. When diffused, essential oils may provide air purification, remove metallic particles and toxins from the air, increase atmospheric oxygen, increase ozone and negative ions in the area, eliminate odors from mold, and fill the air with a fresh, aromatic scent.
In order to get these amazing results with essential oils they need to be pure, therapeutic grade. Unfortunately, most oils are inferior quality and possibly toxic.
