Essential Oils..True Nature Can't Be Duplicated


Hola Chicas/Chicos..I pray all is blessed. Essential Oils..we've have heard of them, know them or use them in some fashion. Whether for therapeutic properties or for aromatherapy, we can all agree that there is spiritual goodness in these marvelous oils.

Essential Oils were mankind's first medicine. From African hieroglyphics and Chinese writings, we know that priests and physicians have been using Essential Oils for thousands of years. There are essentially 188 references to Essential Oils in the Bible. Oils such as, frankincense, myrrh, rosemary, hyssop, spikenard were used for anointing and healing the sick. In the book of Exodus, The Most High gave Moses a recipe of Myrrh, Sweet Cinnamon, Cassia, Sweet Calamus, Olive Oil as a holy anointing oil. How amazing would that have been to grace your presence with that oil??

It is interesting to know the chemical components that nature combines to make up the oils, but it is also humbling to take note of the fact that even with the best human efforts, should you in a laboratory combine all the chemicals in the correct proportions, you would still not have an identical oil...sorry scientists. Such a copy of an oil will not have the same therapeutic effect as the natural and pure essential oil. And though we pride ourselves on being a technology advanced society, modern science still can not unlock the secrets of essential oils and why they can do what they do.

If you for instance took all the correct chemical components, which will include lavandulol, borneol, terpineol, geraniol and linalol, and try to make up lavender essential oil in a laboratory, you will not have an oil that can successfully treat burns the way that true lavender oil can.

Producing the purest of oils can be very costly because it may require several hundred pounds, or even several thousand pounds of plant material to extract one pound of pure essential oil. For example, one pound of pure melissa oil sells for $9,000-$15,000. Although this sounds quite expensive, one must realize that three tons of plant material are required to produce that single pound of oil. Because the vast majority of all oils produced in the world today are used by the perfume industry, the oils are being purchased for their aromatic qualities only. High pressure, high temperatures, rapid processing and the use of chemical solvents are often employed during the distillation process so that a greater quantity of oil can be produced at a faster rate. These oils may smell just as good and cost much less, but will lack most, if not all, of the chemical constituents necessary to produce the expected therapeutic results.

Benefits of Nature..Essential Oils:
  • Essential Oils are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals. They prevent all mutations, work as free radical scavengers, prevent fungus and prevent oxidation in cells.
  • Essential oils are anti-bacterial, anti cancerous, anti-fungal, anti infectious, anti microbial, anti tumorous, anti parasitic, anti viral, and antiseptic. They have been known to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses while simultaneously restoring balance to the body.
  • Essential oils may detoxify the cells and blood in the body.

  2. Cardamom oil is sweet, spicy and almost alsamic in fragrance, is clear to pale yellow in color and slightly watery in viscosity.
    Cardamom was well known in ancient times and the Egyptians used it in perfumes and incense and chewed it to whiten their teeth, while the Romans used it for their stomachs when they over-indulged.

    Cardamom oil is particularly helpful for the digestive system. It works as a laxative and soothes colic, wind. It warms the stomach and helps with heartburn.

    When feeling weak and mentally fatigued, cardamom oil can help with its refreshing and uplifting effect.I found good Cardamon Essential oil form this Blog post...
