Today's Scientists are studying the numerous and amazing healing substances found in essential oils. Research has shown that essential oils are highly antipathognic. in 1995, Dr. Jean C. Lapraz discovered that no bacterium or virus tested could survive in the presence of oregano and cinnamon. At Weber State University, where Sue Chau tested close to 100 single oils and oil blends, the 3 single oils found most effective against a wide range of bacteria were cinnamon, mountain savory, and oregano. Two oils (cinnamon and oregano) were compared with penicillin and ampicillin for anti-microbil activity. They were found superior to and out performed penicillin and ampicillin. For anti-viral activity, the 3 most effective oils were yarrow, roman chamomile, and lemongrass. The oils found most effective aganst fungus, mold and yeast were cinnamon, mountain savory, oregano and spearmint. The more research done on essential oils, the more benefits we become aware of.
Because essential oils are volatile and aromatic, many benefits are obtained by inhaling them. You may breathe in the fracrance from the bottle, apply the oils to your body, or diffuse them into a room.
Essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune defense properties of plants. Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the tissues of the skin. They are lipid soluble and are capable of penetrating cell walls, even if they are hardened because of an oxygen deficiency. In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the bdy within 20 minutes and are then emtabolized like other nutrients. They remain in the body for 21 days, (the life span of the cell).
Essential oils contain oxygen molecules which help to transport nutrients to starving human cells. Because a nutritional deficiency is an oxygen deficiency, disease begins when the cells lack the oxygen forproper nutrient assimilation. By providing the needed oxygen, essential oils also work to stimulate the immune system.
Essential oils are very powerful antioxidants. Anioxidants create an unfriendly enviroment for free radicals. They prevent all mutations, work as free radical scavengers, prevent fungus, and prevent oxidation i the cells.
Essental oils are anti-bacterial, anti-canceros, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-microbial, anti-tumoral, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, and anti-septic. Essential oils have been shown to destroy all tested bacteria and virues while simultaneouly restoring balance to the body. Essential oils may detoxify the cells and the blood in the body.
Essential oils containing sesquiterpenes have the ability to pass the blood brain barrier, enabling them to be effective in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, Lou Gehrig's disease, Parkinson's disease, and muliple sclerosis. Essential oils help promote emotional, physial, and spiritual healing.
