Essential Facts About Essential Oils Many of you are new to Essential oils, so some background information is important. For those of you who are already “oilers” you will be re-inspired by this information and will continue to share this with family and friends.
How long have essential oils been around? • Essential oils were humankind’s first medicine. • Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to improve health. The ancients used the oils with great success for the body, mind and spirit. The use of essential oil is documented in the Bible as well Chinese writing. • There are 188 references in the Bible to essential oils. We have all heard about Frankincense, Myrrh, rosemary, hyssop and spikenard to anoint and heal the sick. • Cinnamon, Calamus, cassia and olive oil are noted in a recipe used by Moses. • When referring to these Holy oils, we are referring to their medicinal use a being from God’s pharmacy. Everything that we need to be happy and healthy has been given to us. We need only to look to nature!!!
What is an essential oil? • Essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants (including their respective parts such as seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, and fruit, etc.). • PURITY of the oil is an extremely important aspect. This purity and level of medicinal constituents is affected by a vast number of variables such as climate, fertilizer, pesticides, altitude, harvesting procedures and time of the year, on and on. All these variables effect the chemical constituents of each oil.
Today’s seminar is based upon the use of the purest, grade-A Essential Young Living oils. • Young Living Essential Oil Company is committed to bringing you the highest grade oils possible. Anything less than pure may not bring the desired results. • Young Living is dedicated to making sure the oils are of the highest biological value.
What benefits do pure essential oils provide? • Essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune defense properties of plants. • Therapeutic essential oil molecules are small and are able to easily penetrate the tissues body. • Essential oils are lipid soluble, therefore are able to penetrate cell walls that have hardened due to oxygen depletion. • Essential oils penetrate cells of the body with oxygen molecules within 20 minutes of application.
Essential oils can be anti-bacterial, antifungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, and antiseptic. Some essential oils have been shown to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses while simultaneously restoring balance to the body. • Essential oils containing sesquiterpenes that have the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier. • Essential oils promote emotional, physical and spiritual healing. • Essential oils have a bioelectrical frequency. Clinical research shows that essential oils raise the frequency of the body and restores it to a normal, healthy level.
What is “Frequency” and how does it pertain to pure essential oils and health? • Frequency is a measurable rate of electrical energy. Everything has an electrical frequency that is measured in megahertz (MHZ). The human body ranges between 62-68 MHZ in the daytime. For example, if you have the flu, the frequency range is 57 MHZ, Epstein Barr- 52 MHZ. Fresh herbs have a frequency of 20-27MHZ, while essential oils vibrate at 52-350 MHZ. The use of essential oils has been shown to elevate the frequency of human beings. • Microorganisms have the ability to decrease human frequency and interestingly, negative thoughts can reduce human frequency as well. • Positive thoughts, meditation and prayer have been shown to elevate human frequency to a healthy level of being.
How do pure essential oils effect the brain? • The blood-brain barrier is a membrane between circulating blood and the brain that prevents certain damaging substances from reaching the brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid. Some essential oils are able to cross this barrier. • The amygdala is a gland within the limbic system that plays a major role in the storage and release of emotional trauma. Aromatherapy has been shown to release emotional trauma. The essential oils also can effect the pineal and the pituitary glands. These two glands are the “control center” of the brain and direct the body on various levels such as stress response, energy production (thyroid), and immune function. • Sesquiterpenes increase oxygen in the limbic system of the brain, especially around the pineal and pituitary glands. This in turn leads to higher levels of antibodies, endorphins and neurotransmitters. The essential oils of Frankincense and Sandalwood are particularly high in sesquiterpenes.
What enables pure essential oils to offer such wonderful benefits? • The term heterogeneous is used to describe the chemicals making up essential oils. This simply means that essential oils can perform multi-functions at the same time. Synthetic chemicals are exactly the opposite in that they have basically one action. The heterogeneous effect of an essential oil depends on the specific chemical constituents, and the proportion of each one in relation to each other. These constituents can be grouped into families for their specific qualities.
The Application of Essential Oils: Diffusing Essential Oils Essential oils are aromatic. When diffused, they provide air purification by: • Removing metallic particles and toxins in the air • Destroy odors from animals, toxic mold, and smoke • It fills the air with fresh oxygenated aromatic scents The easiest and simplest way of getting essential oils to the brain is inhalation, specifically to the amygdala. A“diffuser” is used specifically for dispersing essential oils into the air. Avoid any type of diffuser that uses heat because heat may destroy the valuable chemical constituents. The newest ultrasonic diffuser from Young Living is superior because it diffuses without fractionating the precious therapeutic essential oils.
Direct Application • Essential oils may be applied directly to the skin or area of concern. One to three drops of an essential oil is generally all that is needed to feel a shift in energy. Body Massage • When large areas of the body are massaged, essential oils should be diluted in the vegetable oil. Vita Flex Therapy / Foot Massage • Vita flex refers to the points on the feet, where specific organs of the body can be affected. Three to six drops of oil is recommended per foot to experience the benefit from an essential oil. The oils can be worked into the foot by a special technique that is tremendously relaxing and rejuvenating.
Auricular Therapy • The application of essential oils to the rim of the ear is called auriculartherapy. The ear has the nerve endings for all the organs just as the feet do. Never put oils inside the ear. Baths • It is recommended that three to six drops of oil be added to ½ ounce of bath or shower gel, add to the running water. Be careful with the “hot” oils such as cinnamon because they can be very heating and irritating to the skin. Perfume or Colognes • Wearing an essential oil as a fragrance is a wonderful way to experience the benefits from an essential oil. The aroma can affect the brain’s chemistry at the cellular level.
Stress and Weight: • The chemical constituents of essential oil are able to cross the blood-brain barrier and work in the area of the brain, the amygdala, that alleviates trauma and elevates endorphins and neurotransmitters. • The pineal and pituitary glands are the “control center” of the brain and can direct the body on various levels such as stress response, energy production (thyroid), and immune function. • Pure essential oils have been determined to oxygenate tissue and affect the acid base balance. • It is now understood that “stress” affects every aspect of human bodilyfunction; weight gain, emotional distress, low energy level, and poor digestion and assimilation of nutrients can all be interrelated.
There is no short cut to health. • Thoughts, attitudes and behaviors that create health cannot be overlooked. • Eating well. • Adequate sleep. • Release tension. • Meditation. • Laugh often. • Hydration level. Essential oils hold a key to assist you in your journey and quest to have quality of life. We wish to share the insights of their use with you, for yourself and your loved ones.

Plan Ahead to be Busy • Write the menu for the week • Shop for good food • Plan and cook ahead • Delegate and get everyone to help…with everything that needs to be done… to stay healthy and happy. • Look at the calendar and “cut and slash” everything that you don’t need to do.
WEIGHT • Take a moment several times during the day to “be at peace” and use your oils to quite yourself, ground, and refocus. Peace and Calming is a wonderful EO to “calm your motional body” • Notice when you are becoming upset and reground before it has a physical effect. The chemical effect of stress raises cortisol. Cortisol effects the function of the thyroid telling it to stop making T-3, the chemical that tells your cells to burn energy. This is a critical concept to “get.”This is how stress makes yourbody put on weight.
Technique: • Place several drops of your chosen oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, then cup over your nose and breathe deeply several times. Feel the shift in your energy. Enjoy the moment to refocus. Blend # 1: 5 drops lemon and grapefruit in a gallon of pure water and drink through out the day. Grapefruit is known as a “fat-buster”. Blend # 2: Combine: 4 drops lavender, 4 drops basil, 3 drops juniper, 8 drops Grapefruit and 5 drops cypress; mix and apply to feet, on location, as a body massage, or use in bath. This blend is used to emulsify fat.
Simple Technique to reduce appetite: • Place several drops of peppermint oil in your water. Drink throughout the day, especially if you feel like eating when you are not really hungry. • When needed, peppermint can be inhaled as noted in the technique above. Placing a drop on the tongue is not only refreshing, but delicious. It works.
