Essential Oils for Natural healing

Essential Oils for Natural Healing is an all natural way of treating or preventing health issues.

Visualize this, you are watching a movie on television and a commercial comes on. The commercial shows a person or persons struggling with some health issue. It could be arthritis, diabetes, a need to lose weight or any number of health problems. The actors in the commercial are then shown taking some drug that gives them relief from the condition but there is a catch. A long list of possible side effects, some even life threatening. You then ask yourself, why would anyone take that drug?

Of course the answer is they don’t know there is a safer and better way. Using (CPTG) Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.

Just like any other product there are differences in oils. If you check the label it will tell you that there are additives that don’t have any significant value. These fillers actually make the oil less effective and can have side effects like the drug in the commercial.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are a group of chemical constituents that are volatile and oil soluble. This means they can evaporate and be distilled and will dissolve in or combine with oils or other lipids.

They are found in all or part of one of many different aromatic plants. These constituents are created by plants for immune defence, pollination attraction, damaged tissue healing, and other metabolic purposes within the plant.

How We Get Essential Oils

Pure essential oils are extracted from all or part of a plant by using a stream distillation process. In the case of citrus oils a process of pressing the oils from the peel is used.

Skilled distillers use the best, most natural plants, harvested at the peak of the plants growth, and distilled in the proper way to ensure the correct balance of chemical constituents in the final product. This ensures that you get the purest, naturally derived essential oil for any therapeutic use. Avoid any oils extracted using chemical solvents or that contain synthetic chemicals.

Aromatherapy

Essential oils typically contain several aromatic constituents that create different aromas. This property has long been used to create perfumes, colognes, and other products to stimulate our sense of smell. Because our sense of smell is closely tied to our memory, emotional and stress response centers of our brain, the aromas of many oils can have a strong impact on these areas of our lives.

Not Just For Aromatherapy

It has been discovered that the oils can be used for more than just stimulating our olfactory system. A single oil can actually be a complex mixture of hundreds of different chemical constituents, including various terpenes, esters, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, phenols, oxides, and many others.

In scientific studies many of these chemical constituents have demonstrated properties in the following areas.

  1. Antibacterial
  2. Anti-cancerous
  3. Anti-oxidants
  4. Stress Relief
  5. Anti-inflammatory and many other areas.

Because of the many different properties they are being used not only aromatically but also topically and internally to help support the body’s natural health mechanisms.

Aromatic Uses

There are a couple of ways to use the oils aromatically. The simplest way being to open a bottle and inhale. Another way is to put 1 or 2 drops into your hands and cupping the hands over the nose and mouth while inhaling.

For continuous aromatic use, use an aromatherapy diffuser. The diffuser disperses the oil into the air and can be set to run for a specific time. Diffusers can be simple evaporative, ultrasonic or nebulizing.

The ultrasonic and nebulizing diffusers uses ultrasonic vibrations or cool moving air to transform the oil into a fine mist that is dispersed throughout the room for an intensive therapeutic experience.

Topical Uses

When you apply the oils directly to the skin, hair, mouth, nails or other areas of the body this is known as a topical application. The oils can be applied undiluted, referred to as a neat application, for concentrated use in a small area of the body.

Another alternative is to combine the essential oil with a carrier oil. The carrier oil can be ether Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Fractionated Coconut Oil, Almond, Jojoba, or Sesame.

This is done to cover a large area of the body or to dilute the concentrated oil for young sensitive skin.

Some Common Ways To Apply The Oils Topically Include The Following:

  1. Direct Application
    The oils are either dripped directly onto the body location or dispensed into the hands and rubbed onto the desired location. There are also small roll on bottles that can be used to apply the oils.
  1. Massage
    After combining the oils with a carrier oil to create massage oil it is applied to the skin using a massage technique. The oils enhance the power of touch with their own unique properties.
  1. AromaTouch Technique
    This simple powerful technique was developed by Dr. David Hill. It involves the use of 8 essential oils applied along the spine and feet.The technique is designed to reduce stress, enhance immune functions, reduce inflammatory response, and increase homeostasis in the body.
  1. Compress
    This technique involves placing a hot or cold moist towel on the skin to help drive the oil deeper into the tissue.
  1. Baths
    Adding the oil to a bath either directly or with the use of bath salts or Epsom salts causes the oils to be absorbed into the skin from the bath.
  1. Other Therapies
    The oils can be applied through other therapies such as reflexology, acupuncture, and auricular therapy. This enhances the effects of these therapies.
Internal Uses

Many of the oils are safe to be taken internally by adults, while some should be avoided. If the oil is labeled as nutritional or supplement it can be taken internally as directed. If it doesn’t list this information internal use should only been done under the care of a certified health professional.

Some Common Ways To Take The Oils Internally Include The Following:

  1. Capsules
    Several drops are placed in a capsule. Olive oil can be added to dilute and fill the capsule if desired. The capsule is immediately closed and swallowed.
  1. Beverage
    Add several drops of oil in 1 to 2 cups of water, almond milk, or rice milk.
  1. Rectal or Vaginal Insertion
    Combine several drops of oil with a small amount of carrier oil and insert either vaginally or rectally with a syringe for overnight retention. The oils can also be inserted inside of capsules or applied on tampons.
