Why Essential Oils are Essential (Part 2)
What are Pure, Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils?
As we mentioned in last month’s newsletter, essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants (including their respective parts such as seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruit, etc.). One of the factors that determines the purity and therapeutic value of an oil is its chemical constituents.
These constituents can be affected by a vast number of variables including: the part(s) of the plant from which the oil was produced, soil condition, fertilizer (organic or chemical), geographical region, climate, altitude, harvest season and methods, and distillation process.
As we begin to understand the power of essential oils in the realm of personal, holistic health care, we recognize the absolute necessity for obtaining the purest therapeutic-grade essential oils possible. Chemists can replicate some of the known individual constituents, but they have yet to successfully recreate complete essential oils in the laboratory.
What Benefits do Pure, Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils Provide?
Essential oils embody the regenerating, oxygenating and immune-system strengthening properties of plants. Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the skin. They are lipid-soluble and are capable of penetrating cell walls, even if they have hardened because of oxygen deficiency. In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes and then be metabolized like other nutrients.
Essential oils contain oxygen molecules that 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. They can play a vital role in supporting, affecting, and maintaining overall wellness.
Essential oils are aromatic. When diffused, they provide air purification by:
- Removing metallic particles and toxins from the air;
- Increasing atmospheric oxygen;
- Increasing ozone and negative ions in the area, which inhibits bacterial growth;
- Destroying odors from mold, cigarettes and animals; and
- Filling the air with a fresh, aromatic scent.
Essential oils have a biochemical 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. Be sure to check back next quarter as we discuss frequency and how it pertains to essential oils.
