Introduction to Young Living Essential Oils Part 7
Aromatherapy is a broad and expanding field that scientists
are just beginning to explore. Aromatherapy means to treat with aroma
through inhalation. It is well known that aroma reaches and influences
the deepest human instincts. When essential oils are
diffused and inhaled, aromatherapy not only delivers the calming benefits
of fragrance, it also delivers the many health benefits unique to essential
Increasing Oxygen and
It has been theorized
that when essential oils are diffused, they can increase
atmospheric oxygen by releasing oxygenating molecules into the air.
Not only do they increase
oxygen in the atmosphere, essential oils increase the
body's ability to transport oxygen into the cells. The lipid-soluble structure
of essential oils allows them to easily pass through cell membranes in
the nose and diffuse into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, the
oils can help transport oxygen and nutrients into the cells. One of the
causes of disease in both plants and humans is the inability of nutrients
to penetrate the cell. This results in cell deterioration, leads to cell
mutation, and creates a host for bacteria and disease.
oils can make chemicals nontoxic by fracturing their molecular
structure. European scientists have found that essential oils work as
natural chelators, bonding to metallics and chemicals and ferrying them
out of the body.
Filtering the Air
increase ozone and negative ions, which inhibit bacterial growth. This
prevents and destroys odors from mold, cigarettes, animals, etc. Diffused
essential oils work as an outstanding air filtration system, helping to
remove dust particles from the air.
Tracing the path of
essential oils through the olfactory system is fascinating
and telling. The olfactory membranes are very tiny and well protected
by the lining of the nose. They contain about 800 million nerve endings
that receive the microfine, vaporized oil particles, carry them along
the axon of the nerve fibers, and connect them with the secondary neurons
in the olfactory bulb. The impulses are then transported to the limbic
system and the olfactory sensory center at the base of the brain. They
pass next between the pituitary and pineal gland and move to the amygdala,
which is the memory center for fear and trauma.
Only in 1989
was it discovered that the amygdala plays a major role in storing and
releasing emotional trauma and that aroma has a profound effect in triggering
a response from this gland. Dr. Joseph Ledoux, of the New York Medical
University, theorized that this could be a major breakthrough in helping
to trigger the release of pent-up emotional trauma.
have had nose surgery or other structural conditions may find it difficult
or impossible to detect a complete odor. The same is true of people who
heavily use makeup, perfume, cologne, hair sprays, hair colorings, perms,
or other products with synthetic odors.
nerves are like other nerves and organs in the body. They respond to electrical
signals and impulses that form coded messages dispatched to various areas
of the body. This may be why inhalation of some oils will increase the
production of endorphins, neurotransmitters, and antibodies. Fragrance
is one of man's greatest enjoyments, bringing back memories and creating
feelings of security, grounding, and well-being.

have a woman in her late 20's or early 30's in my group who was actually
scheuled to have surgery and have rods put in her back. One of my distributors
talked to her about trying the Raindrop Treatments for at least 6 treatments
and she agreed. After 2 she began to notice a difference. I gave her the
third one and the small curve at the bottom was gone and the spine moved
over 1" at the top. ( We drew lines on her back) Over the next several
weeks with weekly RDT's, she grew 1 inch and began to breathe better and
feel better. She cancelled her surgery and I trained her husband to give
her treatments. He does it every week for her.
my son was 4 he was diagnosed with Asthma and was prescribed albuterol
and steroids. We did these treatments for a time because he had trouble
breathing and I was not aware of alternatives. We then found the oils
and I used harmony for allergies which difficulty in breathing can be
caused by, then we used RC
and Raven and
I also used Lavender
and then when we could afford it I bought Frankincense,
which I think really helped push him over the edge into total wellness.
He no longer has asthma and is clear of most of his allergies. I am thankful
for YL oils more than you can imagine.
