The Healing Powers of Essential Oils

Certified Aromatherapist, Reiki Master & RMT

The healing powers of aromatherapy and essential oils have been used for centuries around the world. They are used in mainstream medical practice in Europe, and around the world to treat skin burns, as antiseptics in hospitals, insect repellents, perfumes and more. The use of oils is only slowly being embraced in North America. Here, essential oils are mostly recognized for their olfactory abilities but they are beneficial in so many additional ways!

Essential Oils are derived from the essence of plant life such as herbs, flowers, seeds and nuts. A distillation process is used to extract the oils. Oils in their pure form can then be used to treat symptoms of depression, PMS, muscle tension, poor circulation, chakra energy imbalance and even in some cases to aid in fighting cancer. They are also commonly used as cleaning agents with antibacterial and antiviral properties. Essential oils and their natural chemistry are being studied by many universities for their healing abilities. Currently there are studies recognizing the benefits of essential oils in human cellular integrity.

Only 100% natural oils with no synthetic additives have true therapeutic value. Make sure you do your research. Storage and blending of these oils also play a role in their effectiveness. Each essential oil has a energy frequency – for example Frankincense vibrates at a frequency of 147 MHz and Sandalwood vibrates at 96MHz. Frankincense is a main oil of study in it's use to combat cancer and help bring the integrity of good cells back to life after intense chemo treatments.

The human body has a natural affinity to plants since we actually have a similar cellular make up! With a topical essential oil application through a carrier oil, our sebum will bind with the oil to enter the bloodstream and heal the body. When used properly and in the right topical applications, essential oils can be powerful healing agents!
