Essential Oils Everyday~Why & How to use them.


Why~ ? 

  We were placed in a botanical garden not in  a concrete jungle therefore the 'molecules of essential oils' are very much a natural part of our healthy and complete existence here on planet earth.  We don't see them but they are manufactured in plants and released into the air.  When we breath the air they travel into our blood through our lungs.  Their many varied chemicals have different actions in our bodies.  From anti microbial purposes to refreshing, invigorating, relaxing, or sensual they are a gift from our Creator.  One of the most obvious chemical reactions is the pleasure of their molecules of scent.  Although we may not be conscious of all the wonderful ways they work their Majesty in our lives, alone the power they evoke through our olfactory system or our sense of smell is enough to give them attention.  
     "In ancient times essential oils were such a part of everyday life any real explanation of them in text was left out, however their mention was common place.  In the Holy Bible alone there are over 1,035 references essential oils, aromatic oil-producing plants, and their applications, including at least 33 species. Not only were they used by Jews and early Christians but they were used by all the cultures around them, including the Arabians, Assyrians, Phoenicians, Babylonians, Persians, Egyptians, Romans, Greeks and other cultures around the Mediterraneans.  Their perfumes, medicines, anointing oils, balms, and incenses all derived their scents, potency, and healing capabilities from essential oils".  (Healing Oils of the Bible, Dr. David Stewart. pg 96)
     Big pharmaceutical companies market the use of medical drugs for symptomatic illnesses never treating the real root of the dis-ease. The type of medical theory that is practiced in our day is 'Allopathy' it treats symptoms in the body using pharmaceuticals, which are synthetic molecules of nature or a mock of nature.  This type of medicine does not even claim to heal people. Healing occurs in the body naturally if given the right environment to equip itself to carry out the process.   All the elements the body needs to bring about healing and maintain health are given by the natural world and are harmoniously aligned with the same principles that our bodies run on. We were made from the very earth the same earth that we sow and reap our food from.  Healing also has a spiritual element as well.  When the body, spirit,  and the soul are working together harmoniously you have health.  Essential oils that come from plants are the model for which pharmaceutical companies create their drugs. However these drugs or chemicals do not contain the natural package in which they originally were taken from in the natural world.  Essential oils when extracted and produced in the way that allows them to contain the whole array of chemical compositions we find in the plants, are the true healing medicines that God has so graciously given us.  These oils are working their majesty in the plants before they even get into our bodies.  So when they are carefully produced and packaged we can access these gems and use them in our lives to help our bodies heal and maintain abundant health.  

How~?

     There are three levels of our being that the oils work on; our physical bodies, our emotions, and our spirits. Since all of these levels or aspect of our existence are interconnected we may see results in each area separately or they may over lap in application.  When we place the oils on or in our physical bodies they have a way of naturally knowing how to work in our emotions and in our spirits.  They may or may not work on all aspects as we use them but they do work individually in each of the three areas of our being.  The intent and desires we hold in our hearts as we use them will allow them to operate in conjunction with our wills and  in each of these three layers of our being.  It is not that it is some kind of 'magic' or 'spell' that takes these workings to consideration.  It is our willingness to be whole.  Yeshua said in John 5:1-9, 'Are you WILLING to be made whole?'  So if our consciousness is wanting ourselves  to be whole then the awareness of our need in any area ready and willing to be made whole will show itself to us. The oils have a way of allowing our awareness to become more heightened to areas of healing or change we need.   They are kinda like a magnifying glass to our existence.  When we were shut out of the garden because of our choice of fruit it was like we were also shut down in the area of our beings that allows more light to see and live by.  Essential oils are the most oxygen containing molecules apart from air itself.  When we left the garden we were cut off from the level of oxygen that we needed to function in health.  Essential oils in essence,  bring more life into us.  

The Physical Level~
   
  Essential oils have been applied on the human body,  throughout time, from birth to death.  The wise men of the East brought; Frankincense,  Myrrh (Liquid Gold), and  possibly either Balsam Fir or Aloes/Sandalwood oil, which are two of the most precious and costly oils of that day, to the Christ child at his birth.   In ancient times they used essential oils to embalm bodies upon burial of the dead.  These embalming rituals sometimes took up to 40 days and thousands of dollars in precious oils.  Essential oils were also found in the tombs of ancient pharaohs.  These oils still contained potent healing chemicals after thousands of years.  Even flesh of the dead after thousands of years, of potential decay, were found in these tombs and crypts of ancient days.  I believe today we have lost a bit of the sacredness of our Temples/bodies. Sin has run its course over yet another generation and seems to be worse then ever before.  It's time to get back to regarding our flesh and bones as a dwelling place of the divine and treating it with such love and care as that commands.   There are a few ways of applying essential oils on the physical body and many reasons to do so.  I will list these applications and some possible reasons why you would use them. Remember that when using Essential oils they are 'Chemicals' NOT oils  in the sense that we think of 'fatty acid' oils or greasy oils.  They are very dry wet oils or chemicals  evaporating rather quickly.  So, with that in mind they can be used in the house hold and on the body where cleaning products and skin care would apply. When using Essential Oils on the body be very cautious.  Some Essential Oils have more 'hot' or 'spicy' chemicals than others.  The skin can be very sensitive and it is advised to start applying them with carrier oils or doing a test patch on the inside of your arm or elbow.  I use them often and frequently directly on my skin.  I have even gotten the spicy ones in not so comfortable places including the eyes.  Where as discomfort or mild pain may occur, in the event, oils will do no damage they will just teach you to be more careful and honoring with their special properties i.e. chemicals as you get to know them and feel confident with their use.  If pain or discomfort occurs with topical application be sure to flush with a carrier oil or milk not water.  It is advised to start using very small amounts of oils to become familiar with their potency.

"Physically, Essential Oils support us as *fighters against unfriendly microbes,*balance-rs of bodily functions (such as hormones, digestion, circulation, brain chemicals, nerves, endocrine, energy levels, cardiovascular, respiratory, immune and such as they support the whole body)*and raisers of our bodily frequencies, and as*antioxidants that purify/detox our system". (Healing Oils of the Bible, Dr. David Stewart)  Essential oils are the greatest solvents to our cells.  

*Topical Application on skin is called 'Neat' not recommended for beginners until recognition of certain oils can be considered.  The palms of hands and feet are a safe place to start applying essential oils directly to the body as they are the two places your skin is most porous. Massage oil is a great way to carry the oils and apply them topically on the body.  

*Inhalation, as in 'Breathing In', merely breathing in from an open bottle of oil,  the application of cologne,  perfumes, diffusion with air, water, steam, or smoke as in burning resins, herb and  incense.

*Internally, can be taken in through oils in gel capsules for supplementation or liquids such as milk, juice or water, or in food sources i.e. salad dressings, flavorings such as vanilla, mint, orange added to pastry, ice cream or cereal,  herb oils in savory meat dishes or other entrees.  Essential Oils can be taken internally through any body orifice; the mouth, the ears, the nose, the anus and the rectum.  If you are having lung issues I have read that you can bypass the digestive system right to the lungs by entering the anus. 

Some of the ways to use these applications may look like these suggestions:

Personal hygiene; facial steam, face masque,facial oil or cremes, lotions,massage oils,dry brushing, aroma baths,bath salts, essential oils are often in soaps, shampoos, and conditioners.  

House hold use; Air fresheners; water spritzers, sheet sprays, laundry, diffuser, (especially in colder weather  or when a member of the household are sick,  to support the immune system) 
Oils can also be worn as perfume to protect from airborne sickness and viruses when out in public places such as schools or hospitals.  General cleaning, as the oils all contain anti microbial properties and some more than others.  Jacuzzi, after shower a few drops on a drying towel.

Maintaining Health; I  take the oils internally when I get a flu virus. I use all the herb oils like Oregano, Thyme, Lavender, Marjoram, and  Rosemary.  I would  also take  them internally when I would wake up in the night with anxiety. Marjoram is a good one to take to calm your nervous system down as well as Chamomile, Lavender and  Peppermint. Taking Clove oil is a very good antioxidant and good oil for over all longevity.   

Caution: Do not use on household pets without proper understanding as animals do not process them the same way our human bodies do.  With animals the amount of essential oils used is very minute. 


Because this ended up being so long I am going to continue this blog on another entry.  I will cover The Emotional Level~ with applications & The Spiritual Level~with applications. . . so tune in to the wonderful smells of 'Aromatherapy Health Today' for  more on "Essential Oils Everyday~ Why ? How? and When?

Can You Smell The Roses ?

The connection that the Olfactory System has to the sense of smell is also closely related to your level of Self Awareness.   Are we so bogged down with synthetic molecules of smell, flavor and a whole host of chemicals we surround our daily lives with that we have become 'out of touch' with our real life natural connection.? From Car Air Fresheners to House Hold Cleaning Products we run the gamut on the bouquet of aromas that come from manufactured origins and molecules that do not fit into our God given natural body chemistry.  The perfume companies alone spend millions of dollars annually creating fake molecules of scent that will tantalize your Olfactory System and lead you into a reality that is far from REAL. Studies have been conducted on the Olfactory System that certain scents will motivate people to spend money, have sex, or  just find the ability to  rest and relax more often.    Other studies conducted have shown that natural molecules of scent may open up your emotional being to walk more free of negative emotions that carry a heaviness that weigh ourselves down with lower frequencies of  sickness and disease.   While walking into the library of a local college to use the computer today  I noticed the smell of it's roses planted along side the building.  I was astounded that I could smell them  from that distant.  These roses were so fragrant and strong that their own molecules of scent were reaching my nose 20 feet from the building.  I'm not sure how far those microscopic molecules of scent released in the chemicals of 'Essentil Oil' from the Rose travel but I do know because of their tiny tiny size and weight they can stay suspended in the air for hours.  The essential oil molecules of the rose are  the highest frequency of all oils reaching heights of  320 Megahertz.  So, what that means is just by walking by those roses today, their molecules of scent have the power to raise the levels of my own bodies cellular frequency.  Where as this computer room I am sitting in right now is actually reducing the frequency of my cellular vibrations I am presently aware that my time here is coming to a very quick end.  I just wanted to share today that wonderful experience in smelling those roses as I approached the building and encourage all to become more aware of the molecules of scent they have invited into their lives.  Remember all that comes from mother earth nourishes our bodies, strengthens our spirits and emotions.  The molecules of scent that have been synthesized in a chemical laboratory in the name of Greed are not doing anything for your good in fact they are weakening your health and your self awareness.  We were placed in a Garden on earth where we can synch our frequency to the frequency of nature which is peace to our beings.  Becoming more aware of the frequency of  'fake' molecules and removing them from our lives may very well be the key to experiencing more of a Sunny Day. Replacing 100%natural molecules of scent will magnify  all that that encompasses in meaning as it relates to our physical bodies, our unseen emotions & thoughts and our spiritual connection with our Father God & His Holy Spirit.  His spirit will  lead us daily to worship Him in Spirit and Truth.  May He lead you ever so gently this day into more truth that you indeed  walk in the freedom Christ died for you to have. 
Please take the time to exercise your sense of smell and try to become more aware of how you feel around certain smells, chemicals and frequencies they really do affect your quality of life. Enjoy an aromatherapy bath or just a stop by a local garden or flower shop and feel the difference it brings, or visit your local massage spa and ask for an aroma massage. 
Enjoy True Aroma ! xoxxocarolgayxoxo

If you're not 'Fasting' you're not 'Lasting'

I wanted to share a little bit about fasting to remind people of the amazing power of lightening the load on the body.  I was reminded recently through a list of healthy commandments found in one of Dr. Paul C. Bragg's books, The Shocking Truth about Water.  Here is the list.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thou~ shall respect thy body as the highest manifestation of  Life.
Thou~ shall abstain from all unnatural, devitalized food and stimulating beverages.
Thou~ shall nourish the body with only Natural, unprocessed, 'live' food, ~that
Thou~ shall extend thy years in health for loving, charitable service
Thou~ shall regenerate thy body by the right balance of activity and rest.
Thou~ shall purify they cells, tissue and blood with pure fresh air and sunshine.
Thou~shall abstain from ALL food when out of sorts in mind or body.
Thou~ shall keep thy thoughts, words and emotions, pure, calm and uplifting.
Thou~shall increase thy knowledge of Nature's laws, abide therewith, and enjoy the fruits of thy life's labor
Thou~shall lift up thyself and thy brother man with thine own obedience to All Nature's laws.

It was the seventh one that struck me this past week while reading the book. 'Thou shall abstain from ALL food when out of sorts in mind or body" I have been shaking off the emotional affects of my recent divorce and when I read this I was, "wow",  I need to do a fast.  Fasting is something I started to do when I was about sixteen years old.
  When in high school I was influenced to eat differently.   At the same time I started to work at a Health Food deli.  While working at the deli I was exposed to a whole new world of health.  I started to get sick with mono or strep throat every year.  This was probably due to the increase of sugar and refined foods I allowed into my diet at the time.  This change in my diet wasn't too different but enough to put me over the edge on my usual energy output.  I was starting to see that there really are two roads to go by. One is life and the other is death.  My older sisters were also moving into a more healthier more vegetarian diet.  When my sister would bring my nephew over to our house she would bring his food in a brown paper bag and he would exclaim, 'Mommy doesn't want me to eat that 'yuckie' food at Grandma's house".  Now, I thought we ate pretty healthy.  My father was an avid gardener.   We composted.  We hunted.  We picked and canned fruit.  We fished.  However we still had a lot of refined flour, refined sugar, and bad fats, and other processed foods around. 
 My boss at the deli started to suggest to me that I drink carrot juice with fresh ginger & garlic  when I started to get low on energy. 
  While at my oldest sisters house I was checking out her book shelf and came across a book by Dr. Paul C. Bragg.  This was my first introductory to Dr. Bragg and his health regime.  He has been a powerful influence in my life.  He is the guy that had the first health food products on the market.  He went around doing health crusades and lectures about living a healthy lifestyle. He would say to the crowd, 'Any of you have a grocery story?  Well,  let's clear a shelf and put in some of these healthy products on it'.   In fact that is the way that Jack LaLanne got 'delivered' from his evil ways.  Jack used to eat a gallon of ice cream A DAY ! I read somewhere that he tried to kill his brother on a number of occasions. He was a sugar addict.    A neighbor or relative heard that Paul was going to be giving a lecture on health and brought Jack along.  There was no place to sit so Jack got to sit right next to Paul on the stage as he lectured.  He was up front and personal and well he had a revolutionary change occur in his life.  He was enlightened in an area of his life that he needed serious help in.  I'm so glad that Jack got saved.  Today I have a Jack LaLanne juicer that I'm using.  It's a great product. You might be familiar with Dr. Bragg's products like Organic Apple Cider, or his Virgin Olive Oil.  That oil is like butter.  So, I started to read that book and live by the principles on health that he presented.  I started doing distilled water fast once a week and every month a five day water fast working myself up to doing two forty day juice fast in my twenties.  I thank God for sharing this knowledge with me it really helped me over come so many emotional & spiritual issues in my life, and the story continues.
  It is always challenging to continue to live by what you believe.  There are challenges every day within us and without us trying to draw us one way or another.  We have to remember what we believe, what we have experienced and what we have done in the past to over come and stay on top of life's challenges and potential set backs and injuries.  Living in abundant health is a discipline, a way of life.  Choosing who you hang out with , spend time with , look up to, listen to , can all influence what we believe , what we know and where we are going in life.  Not everyone is an over comer, nor will everyone enter into all that life can give us.  We each have to make decisions in our own lives to over come hurdles and finish the race.  New challenges are just around the corner so we have to continue to do the things we know that keep us strong and moving on. 
 For me one of those things is Fasting.  I heard it said in a recovery program inner city fellowship that I attended years ago that 'you aren't lasting if your not fasting' & 'your not succeeding if your not reading'.  Great slogans to live by.  I have had my greatest breakthroughs in life through fasting and I'm expecting more.
  Fasting has helped me to over come cravings for foods that are not good for me and encourage cravings for foods that are good for me.  I  remember while working at the deli.  We served all things healthy.  We grew our own sprouts and put  them on everything.  I did not like to eat tomatoes or sprouts.  I could eat tomatoes in salads or on sandwiches but not alone.  Sprouts,  I hated. . . ewwww yuck!  They were like eating 'bleach'.  That was all the good stuff in them that cleans  out and detoxes all the grossness in your body from bad health.  Well after the first seven day water fast I did I could eat tomatoes like apples and eat handfuls of sprouts.  After I went away to college and ever since I have  had a perpetual garden of fresh sprouts growing under my counter top. 
  I have found that fasting is a 'health regulator'.  When you give the body plenty of good hydration and nutrition  it sets it on a course that leads to abundant health.  Your body becomes more sensitive to things that are not good for it and you can feel its energy drop when you falter in making the best choices for optimum health.   Your body is like a car it needs energy to run it.  You need vital energy stored in your all your body systems and organs to function in abundance.  Fasting gives your body time and energy to keep itself cleaned out and store up energy to stay alive.  Fasting along with meditation helps you to become more consciously aware of your life, your thoughts and your feelings.  Things don't get swept under the carpet for too long.
  We want to live a conscious life don't we?   I've read that our lives are run by our sub-conscious minds.  The goal is to get the sub-conscious to come up to the surface so we can live in the present moment in God's light and truth, consciously without effort.  Most of our beliefs were created as far back as in the womb and we really are for the most part double minded.  We think one way and feel another way and walk around in confusion. 
   Fasting helps you to become clear minded.  It gives you peace in your body and a freshness in your spirit.  The clouds disappear and you can see clearly , feel yourself and take care of your body mind and spirit.  Fasting helps to take off the self deception that we hide in. 
   It is amazing how much time and thought we give to feeding our appetites in our culture.  When you fast you  may think what on earth am I going to do with all this time on my hands. I don't need to go to the grocery store, I don't need to fix food, or think about what I'm going to eat.  The best way to go into a fast is to determine your intentions before you do it.  Set the fast, like what are you going to eat or not eat, am I going to juice or do only water? Give yourself some guidelines and go for it.  Don't be hard on yourself if you fall out of your fast.  Continuing on or not you can always decide to do another.  I encourage you to continue to fast.  Keep up the discipline and experiment with different kinds of fasting and cleansing.    It's good to journal, meditate, relax, or exercise.  You have to feel your energy and  trust that you are going to do what you need to on each day.  You may need to rest all day.  You might feel like you can do a bit of exercise.  Dr.Bragg's book, 'The Miracle of Fasting', goes into detail of how to go into and come out of a fast.  Just don't be afraid to step out and try it.   Start small and work your way up to longer fast.  And remember you are not lasting if you are not fasting.

Why Believe in Miracles?

    I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately.  After going through a divorce and having my dreams come crashing down it seems the right thing to do, at least for me.  Really, my dreams didn't come crashing down only the 'illusion' of my dreams.   See I was NOT living my dreams, and I am still NOT living my dreams.    So how could they come crashing down, well they really didn't.  It was only my ego that came crashing down.  Only the false sense that everything was ok in my life.
  Ever since I came into a conscious relationship with Christ I had a dream to see the miraculous happen on a normal daily basis.  I read the gospels a lot in the beginning of my spiritual awakening.  I was so in love with that miracle man.  I've had lots of dreams with the miraculous taking place but in all reality I am not a 'Miracle' worker yet.  I do aspire to be.  I actually ache and long to see them flowing in many peoples lives.  Why?  I'm not sure, but I think we need them and well I surely would like to see one rather than go to Disney Land.   I just know that it is in my heart, and I need to follow it.  I believe that miracles show us that God is first of all the supreme creator, and that he is just a good God and full of Love, Compassion, and Mercy.  I think he likes to make things 'right' , or 'perfect' or 'whole'.  If he is  supreme creator I don't think he enjoys looking down on such brokenness and such chaos in his creation. 
      I've been reading an amazing book, 'the anatomy of a miracle', by dr. james b. richards.  This book is rocking my world.  On top of a dozen or so other books I'm reading, they all seem to overlap in theme and concepts.  Yet this one is really good.  Basically he gets down to why we don't see the miraculous taking place in our lives more often.  He breaks it down and helps you to understand faulty ways of thinking and just learning how to identify wrong beliefs in our own lives that hinder or keep us from seeing miracles.  You have to do a lot of soul searching to be free.  I think miracles flow from a freedom.  Freedom that allows you to simply believe like a child would believe that their father would bring them a good gift upon request and not tease them with a snake in a bag. 
     Dr. James says we must 'see, perceive or conceptualize a miracle before we can believe for it'. (pg. 11) This is why Jesus used parables to help the mind to 'conceptualize' something that it could not wrap itself around or speak to it in a language it could receive.  Dr. James says that the parables of farming, shepherding and current events of those ancient times have less value to a mind of modern society.  We need to understand the language and laws of the 'unseen' world so we can flow in miracles.  He attributes cutting-edge, scientific discovery to birthing a new language that will help us enter into this state of being.  A state of existing where we can believe and see manifest miracles in every day life. 
     Its seems simple enough yet it is not that easy.  See, you have to believe in order to see results in the miraculous.  There are things in our souls that are contrary to this childlike believe. Our current way of thinking that has been past down through several generations of people who didn't regard God or care to see miracles.    Several generations of people and cultures that attempted to build their own tower to heaven and get things done the way they wanted to or thought best. 
We have to work through our 'unbelief' to come to a place where we will see miracles flow in a generation of people.  The whole bible is a story of how God is working with a people to be like him.  A people that he can call 'his children' those who when people look at them they know they belong to God, what ever that looks like  . .  .we will only have to wait and see. . wait and become that image in the earth. 
   I would like to list some quotes from this book to tease the one who also longs for the miraculous like I do.  I hope that you will pick up a copy of this book and devour it as I have been.
