Essential Oils


Before learning about essential oils I thought there effectiveness was limited to aromatherapy; maybe able to slightly alter ones mood by using a pleasant scent.  But they’re so much more powerful than that.

Essential oils synergistically benefit the physical and energetic bodies.

Therapeutic oils are extracted from medicinal plants through steam distillation producing highly potent oil.  Essential oils can be helpful in treating a spectrum of ailments topically, internally or aromatically although you should check recommended concentrations and application methods before use.

Physical Properties of Essential Oils:

  • Antibacterial
  • Antifungal
  • Antiviral
  • Anti-itch
  • Disinfectant
  • Antimicrobial
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Decongestant
  • Antidepressant
  • Antiparasitic
  • Antiseptic
  • Pain Relieving
  • Immune-stimulating  …to name a few.

Energetic Properties

Besides physical remedies, essential oils also hold their own vibration signatures/energy frequencies that are retained from the life force of the plants when they were harvested at peak vitality.  When applied to the physical body, the essential oils are also working at energetic level to harmonize the correlating wavelength causing the dis-ease.

I recommend everyone have a few key essential oils on hand in the medicine cabinet.  They can go a long way in treating a gamut of infirmities or at the very least, first aid.  Lavender has a great many uses and would be a good place to start.
