Essential Oils Harmonize
Lesson 13 Chapter 2
“The sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic lobe of the brain, the emotional control center. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger, and joy all emanate from this region. The scent of a special fragrance can evoke memories and emotions before we are even consciously aware of it. Where smells are concerned, we react first and think later. All other senses (touch, taste, hearing, and sight) are routed through the thalamus, which acts as the switchboard for the brain, passing stimuli onto the cerebral cortex (the conscious thought center) and other parts of the brain.” ~D. Gary Young, Founder of Young Living Essential Oils
Oils do not "kill" the bacteria, viruses, etc. They harmonize them. This quote explains what that means:
"Pathogens and micro-organisms are part of life. They are the original life forms and they fulfill a very complex function. All forms of cellular life on earth share genetic links. Humans are genetically linked to so-called pathogens, or micro-organisms. We actually consist of bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites and other micro-organisms and they form part of our system…Béchamp discovered that if he stopped fighting micro-organisms and instead improved what he called the ‘milieu’, the environment of the cells, the so-called ‘pathogens’ did not disappear but actually aided in repairing the cells. By not focusing on the disease but on healing instead, Béchamp witnessed the pathogens doing the same. When he concentrated on the disease, however, and literally tried to combat it, the pathogens proved themselves to be the worst enemy. He showed that micro-organisms are the bridge between life and death, and the stage in between — disease." ~Mike Donkers, article Understanding the True Meaning of Disease
***NOTE: NEVER HEAT ESSENTIAL OILS
Heat will alter the chemistry, rendering them therapeutically useless.
Diffused oils don't just mask odors; they actually alter the structure of the molecules that create odors - so the odor is gone and any toxic air is also rendered harmless. They also increase the available oxygen in the room and produce negative ions which is what our bodies need to be in harmony.
