Using Essential Oils ...

Further research has shown that with their immune-stimulating properties, essential oils enhance and support the building of the immune system, whether they be inhaled or applied on the body topically. Even those who contract a cold or the flu recover 70 percent faster using essential oils.

Diffusing the Oils Into the Atmosphere

Perhaps one of the greatest attributes of essential oils is their ability to purify the air we breathe. When diffused in the home they release oxygenating molecules into the atmosphere where they stay suspended for several hours to destroy and prevent bacteria, fungus, mold, and freshen the air with natural fragrances. In addition to removing dust from the air, the diffused oils allow us to breathe in their wonderful antiviral, antibacterial and antiseptic properties.

This is the most perfect way to improve our home environment, either to help us relax, relieve tension and headaches, dispel odors, or just create an atmosphere of peace and harmony. If you have children, or suffer from Emphysema, Sinusitis, Asthma, and allergies, diffusing essential oils into your home will make an essential difference for you and your family's health.

Topical Application of the Oils:

There is a misconception that pure essential oils should first be diluted before applying them topically on the skin. Pure oils, with the exception of those containing the natural chemical constituent known as "phenol," (such as with cinnamon, clove or oregano) may be applied "neat" (undiluted) directly on the skin. Oils containing phenol can cause an irritation or burning sensation.

Know The Difference!

CAUTION: Because many commercially available Essential Oils have been adulterated with solvents and/or man-made chemicals, you should not apply Essential Oils directly to the skin...unless you know them to be safe.

There is but one major producer of Essential Oils in the U.S. known for producing ONLY pure unadulterated, 100% pure, A Grade Essential Oils. That producer is Young Living Essential Oils, Inc.

When applied to the body by rubbing on the feet, essential oils penetrate the skin and travel (via the bloodstream) throughout the body and affect every cell, including the hair, within 20 minutes. They may have a lasting effect for as long as five months from only one application. The oils do not build up and store in the body because they are very subtle and volatile, having a high evaporation rate. Because of their chemical structure, they are metabolized like other nutrients in the cells.

In addition to the feet, the oils may be applied directly to affected areas of the body, such as to joints, muscle and tendons needing relief from aches and pain. Dr. Gary Young, has discovered the oil from Helichrysum, Birch, Clove and Peppermint when combined will take pain away in a manner of moments.

Note: As a user of the above ingredients marketed under the name, Pane Away, this publisher can verify the effectiveness of this oil blend in relieving arthritic pain. It not only worked for myself, but has worked equally as well for everyone I have given it to try. Amazement is the universal response.

Aroma Therapy

Aroma therapy means to treat with aroma through inhalation. Essential oils, because of their fragrance and volatility, have also been reported to help create greater spiritual, physical and emotional harmony when inhaled.

The olfactory, that part of our nose responsible for odor detection, sends impulses created by various odors to the amygdala, which is the memory center of our brain for fear and trauma. It was only discovered in 1989 that the amygdala plays a major role in the storing and releasing of emotional trauma, and only odor or fragrance stimulation has a profound affect in triggering a response with this gland.

Fragrance is one of man's greatest enjoyments, bringing back memories of past experiences and creating a feeling of security, grounding, and well-being. Dr. Joseph Ledoux, of New York Medical University, feels that this could be a major break-through in releasing emotional trauma.

Dr. Gary Young, N.D....

Oil distillation is a precise art that has all but been forgotten. Dr. Gary Young, Founder of Young Living Essential Oils, Inc., is helping to bring this history back to life with research and oil formulations. Dr. Young has spent twelve years studying essential oils in Switzerland, France, Israel, Egypt and Turkey to learn as much as he could about the oils, and how to produce them. In the process, he has established himself as one of the world's leading authorities on the subject.

Returning to the U.S., he built a research farm in Idaho where he built the largest and only stainless steel vertical steam distiller in North America. Today he is distilling some of the finest oils in the world, and lecturing all over America and abroad about the therapeutic value of essential oils.

5,000 Pounds of Rose Petals!

Producing the finest oils requires several hundred pounds of plants, or more, to extract one pound of oil. For instance, it requires from 175 to 250 pounds of lavender to produce one pound of lavender oil, and 5,000 pounds of rose petals to produce one pound of rose oil. Low pressure and low temperature are the keys to maintaining the ultimate fragrance and therapeutic value.

Incorrect processing or contact with any chemical or impurity will destroy the effectiveness of the oils. With this in mind, Dr. Young is committed to producing and offering the finest quality and purest oils in the world. Even the earth on which Dr. Young farms his herbs is free of herbicides and pesticides, to prevent the plants from picking up man-made chemicals. Weeding is meticulously done by hand. In fact, should you visit Dr. Young's Herb Farms, you might be invited to take your turn at "pulling weeds."

When Dr. Young had his oil production tested in France, he went to the government laboratory of Phytosun'Arom. His oils tested there showed some of the highest levels of chemical constituents that had ever been recorded. It is this kind of quality that Essential Oils Online urges its readers to insist upon when purchasing Essential Oils for aroma therapy.

The Young Living Essential Oils Research Farm, located in Idaho, is the finest of it's kind in North America. Dr. Young's company grows the plants, distills them to produce the oils, packages and distributes them and educates the consumer in the usage and benefits of essential oils.

To insure the oils produced by Dr. Young are free of solvents, he insures that each batch of oils is tested by an independent third party laboratory. The reports from these tests are available from Young Living Essential Oils, Inc.

World history richly records the use of essential oils as a means to stave off disease and illness. As modern day "super bugs" have their way with man-made antibiotics, more and more people are turning to the past to find the answers they seek for health and wellness. As they search, they are finding essential oils to be the one source mankind has faithfully depended on over the millennium.

The publisher endorses the quality and purity of the oils produced by Young Living Essential Oils, Inc. There is no other MAJOR producer of Essential Oils in the U.S. that can offer the purity and therapeutic quality that is found in the Essential Oils produced by Dr. Young.

These oils are free of any solvents or man-made chemicals that otherwise would destroy their therapeutic qualities.

As people experience these wonderful, God given oils for the first time, and witness how well their mind and body responds to them, we can expect a paradigm shift in our views towards medicine and health. Essential Oils are "The Missing Link" in nutritional supplements and our good health.
