Essential Oils And Emotional Roots Of Disease

heart verses Pictures, Images and Photos
Whatever goes on in our heart or mind definitely affects our actions and ultimately rules our whole lives. What usually precedes or follows a thought? A feeling. And the feeling is what rules our mind-heart. Dr. Christian Bernard is reported to have made the statement that a person would not be able to live for a very long period of time on an artificial heart as it does not have brain cells. In order for person's heart to function on a continual basis, it must have brain cells.
Why is this? It has to do with the DNA and RNA. In order for the harmonious flow of life to continue in a human being, the part of the cell that contains the blueprint or intelligence (DNA) and the part of the cell that carries out the instructions (RNA) has to have directions. An artificial heart is void of this intelligence (DNA).
The Scriptures give us clear indication and appreciation that the heart and the mind are inseparable. Points of interest are references the Bible makes to the heart-mind connection, indicating that DNA is involved in this process.
"For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he...
Proverbs 23:7
"The good man brings good things
out of the good stored up in his heart,
and the evil man brings evil things
out of the evil stored up in his heart.
For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks."
Luke 6:45
"Repent therefore of this your wickedness,
and pray God if perhaps
the thought of your heart may be forgiven you."
Acts 8:22
One of the unique aspects of essential oils is the fact that, when inhaled, they go directly to our emotional and spiritual centers of the brain. These are organs that respond only to aroma. They do not respond to spoken words or to substances that cannot pass the blood-brain barrier. Talk therapy and most prescription drugs cannot reach the emotional center of the brain. The molecules of essential oils are of the right composition and size to pass through the blood-brain barrier.

Even water does not pass through the blood-brain barrier, which is a good thing, or else our heads would all swell up like watermelons every time we got caught in a rain storm. But essential oils do pass through, which is one of the secrets to their amazing therapeutic abilities. They can reach into our emotional brains and unlock forgotten feelings that are the roots of many of our physical problems.
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart...
Proverbs: 27:9
"A merry heart does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit dries the bones."
Proverbs 17:22
Essential oils also address the roots of our problems at cellular levels, right down to the DNA inside the cells. They cleanse the cells, protect them from hostile microbes, delete incorrect information in cellular memory, and reprogram proper information so that cells have a correct job description and can function as God intended.

Not All Essential Oils Are Created Equal....

There are 4 Grades of Essential Oils:

Grade A oils are pure therapeutic quality and are usually made from organically grown plants distilled at the proper temperatures using steam distillation.

Grade B oils are food grade; they may contain synthetics, pesticides, fertilizers, extenders, or carrier oils.

Grade C oils are perfume grade and may contain the same type of adulterating chemicals as food grade oils. They usually contain solvents which are used to gain a higher yield of oil per harvest. Solvents are highly toxic and contribute to cancer.

Floral Water is a byproduct of the distillation process, a very high quality if it comes from a Grade A distillation process. Accordingly it is of low quality if it comes from poor quality raw materials and or poor distillation processes. It is usually found in skin and hair products.

Cooking with Essential Oils

Essential oils are different from common vegetable oils such as olive, flax, sesame, or canola. While both have benefits, cooking with essential oils can be a healthier alternative to vegetable oils in many instances. Here are some of the key differences between the two types of oils:

  • Vegetable oils contain glycerol, which leaves a greasy residue when applied to the skin and creates a slippery surface (i.e. in the pan); essentials oils do not create a slippery surface (unless mixed with vegetable oil).
  • Vegetable oils are 100% fat; essential oils contain no fat.
  • Vegetable oils are primarily pressed from seeds, nuts, avocados, olives or the bran of grains; pure essential oils are steam distilled from plants (with the exception of citrus oils which are cold-pressed).

The following essential oils are frequently used in recipes: lemon, orange, nutmeg, black pepper, peppermint, ginger, mandarin, sage, tangerine, lemongrass, grapefruit, fennel, spearmint, cinnamon bark, oregano, clove, and basil, among others.

Many people believe that using essential oils in cooking is a relatively new idea; in fact there are thousands of food products that use essential oils for aroma and flavor such as chewing gum, chocolates, candies, and many more. While certain essential oils can be harmful if taken in high dosages, moderate use as flavoring (a few drops per person) is not only safe but delicious!

AromaTalk Tip of the Week: Cat Fleas

"We found a kitten, near death, filled with fleas and larvae pouches all over his belly. I got a bottle of Young Living's Purification essential oil blend from the car, poured about 10 drops in my hands and started towards him. The fleas started jumping off like in a cartoon! He licked off what I applied, which killed anything internally. "Charlie" is now 6 years old."

The Ant Philosophy

The Ant Philosophy
~By Jim Rohn

"The ants are a people not strong, yet they gather their food in the summer." Proverbs 30:26
Over the years I've been teaching children about a simple but powerful concept - The Ant Philosophy. I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy.

The first part is: Ants never quit. That's a good philosophy. If they're headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they will look for another way. They'll climb over. They'll climb under. They'll climb around. They keep looking for another way until they find one. What a neat philosophy, to never quit looking for a way to get where you're supposed to go.

Second, ants think winter all summer. That's an important perspective. You can't be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants are gathering in their winter food in the middle of summer. An ancient story says, "Don't build your house on the sand in the summer." Why do we need that advice? Because while it may seem like sand is a good place to build in the summer when it's dry, you've got to think ahead to the storms of the winter when it is wet and where sand may not be so good when it floods. As you enjoy the sand and Summer sun, you've got to think rocks for a more solid foundation to weather the storms of Winter. Think ahead. Ants do.

The third part of the ant philosophy is that ants think summer all winter. That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, "This won't last long; we'll soon be out of here." And the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they'll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. During winter, they live in a state of positive expectation and can't wait to get out.

And here's the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All he possibly can. What an incredible philosophy, the "all-you-possibly-can" philosophy.

Wow, what a great seminar - "The Ant Seminar," taught and lived by tiny six-legged creatures with brains smaller than the head of a pin, yet containing all the wisdom they need to succeed and survive.

1. Never give up.
2. Look ahead.
3. Stay positive.
4. Do all you can.

People write whole books on these topics while the life of an ant expresses these principles in less than a dozen words.

What If Beauty Ads Told The Truth? (Parody)

Great piece about phthalates toward the end! Hilarious irony, but unfortunately very true if consumers take a closer look at the advertising we buy into.

Di-Gize Essential Oil Blend to the Rescue!

This morning my three and a half year old son came to the breakfast table with a pained expression on his face. I was making a toasted cinnamon raisin bagel, which he loved. His complexion was ashen gray and he was doing a whimper crying thing that is so unlike him. He did not look good, even his lips were white. Stomach flu is going around our church and one of the kids in our Life Group threw up at our Fourth of July celebration Saturday night. Oh, dear, he might be getting the flu was my first thought.

He ate a bite of his bagel and ran into the living room to lay on the couch, again, not something he would never normally do first thing in the morning. He said "I don't feel good, my tummy hurts". I told him that Mommy would get some oil for him. I put a couple drops of grapeseed oil in my palm and added a couple drops of Young Living's Di-Gize essential oil blend of tummy-soothing Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus), ginger (Zingiber officinale), peppermint (Mentha piperita), juniper (Juniperus osteosperma and J. scopulorum), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), anise (Pimpinella anisum), and patchouli (Pogostemon cablin).

I rubbed some of the oil mixture from my palm on his belly in a clockwise motion, then began rubbing the soles of his feet. Before I could start rubbing the second foot, he was kicking his legs trying to get up! He jumped up, ran into the kitchen, and wolfed down the WHOLE BAGEL! His lips were red and color started to return to his cheeks. Essential oils often take some time to work, but this morning they INSTANTLY transformed my son who looked every shade of gray and about to vomit. We had a wonderful day playing outside, riding his bike, ate Greek chicken salad for lunch, and with no tummy issues at all.
