Aromatherapy

Applying Essential Oils

From perfumes and aromatherapy to cooking and medicinal purposes, essential oils have been a vital part of everyday life, dating back to 4500 BC.   Depending upon the chemical make-up of the oil, pure therapeutic quality oils may be applied to the skin, ingested or inhaled. The body absorbs the oils fastest through inhalation and second fastest by applying to the skin on the feet or ears. One may inhale the fragrance directly from the bottle or diffuse them into the room. When diffusing, to preserve the therapeutic constituents of the oil, they should not be heated.  Using a flame or light bulb ring to heat the oil is not advised.  Instead,  a cold air nebulizing diffuser that creates a fine mist  should be used. Diffusion acts as an air filtration system by removing metallic particles and toxins from the air, and produces negative ions which inhibit bacterial growth, destroys odors from mold, cigarettes and animals, and fills the air with a fresh, herbal aromatic scent.

Aromatherapy Makes Scents

How does the aroma of freshly baked cookies make you feel?

Our sense of smell is the the most primitive of the senses.  The olfactory nerve is the shortest nerve pathway in the body running from our nasal cavity directly to the center in the brain where emotions are interpreted.  Thus aromas have a powerful impact on our emotional and physical health.  Different scents can either stimulate hunger or suppress hunger, for example.

Raindrop® Technique

Raindrop Technique originated in the 1980s from the research of Dr. Gary Young working with a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. It integrates reflexology, massage and the power of essential oils in bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment.  A Raindrop session, using the oils provided in the original collection, provides a cleansing at the cellular level.  The molecular composition of the oils have the effect of clearing receptor sites on cell membranes and facilitating the release of stored toxins from the cells and tissues.  Raindrop sessions are part of a comprehensive cleansing of the body when combined with nutritional cleansing of the digestive tract.  As such, including Raindrop in your natural healing practices to regain and maintain your optimal health is recommended highly.

Essential Oil Properties

Read any book about aromatherapy and you will find information about how the applicaton of essential oils can benefit your health.  Many books list different oils and their potential uses.  When ever you use a natural substance such as essential oils they may react differently in different people.  This is often due to the differing body chemistry each of us has.  Every one of us has had exposure to different chemicals and foods.  Our diets are different, our metabolism is different so it makes sense that our reaction to essentail oils may be different.  

To find out more about the difference in essential oil quality, read our post "Aromatherapy Makes Scents".

Here is some basic information on what substances are found in a typical therapeutic grade essential oil and what roles they play in health maintenance.

What's Your Frequency?

Frequency is all around us and IN us

You may be aware that we have energy waves moving around and through us all the time.  Right now there are radio waves (AM and FM) that are all around us and we are unaware of them until we tune a receiver (radio) to the correct frequency to listen to our favorite music.  Television, likewise, has different energy frequencies that are assigned to each channel and we are unaware of them until we turn our television sets on to the desired channel.
