How Essential Oils Differ From Dried Herbs
Essential Oils are the heartbeat of the plant kingdom,
and are perhaps the most exciting life-giving substance we
have in the world today. They represent in plants what
blood represents in humankind - life! This heartbeat is
the energy that was created to deliver the nutrients into
every cell of the body.
Defined: Essential oils are the subtle, volatile liquids
that are distilled from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees,
bushes and seeds.
An ancient process, oil distillation is a delicate and
precise art that has been almost forgotten. Science is just
now re-discovering the incredible healing power of
Essential Oils, and beginning to acknowledge their value
for our health.
More Potent Than Herbs...
Being concentrated, The oils contain virtually all of the
plants healing nutrients, oxygenating molecules, amino acid
precursors, coenzyme A factors, trace minerals, enzymes,
vitamins, hormones and more. And because they are
concentrated, EO's are from 50 to 70 times more
therapeutically potent than the herbs or plants they are
derived from. Unlike dried herbs that can lose up to 90% of
the healing nutrients and oxygen molecules, Essential Oils
do not. Research further shows that Essential Oils when
applied to skin will penetrate every single cell within 20
Because the very life force of the plant is contained in
EO's, and because this life force synergizes so favorably
with the human body, Essential Oils are now being
considered as medicine by some of the world's most
Clinical research shows that Essential Oils have the highest
frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an
environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc.,
Recent research has also shown that many of the so called
"super bugs" that has modern medicine so concerned, cannot
survive in the presence of essential oils...Nor has there
been any pathogen known to resist EO's by mutating.
Best of all, 100% pure, therapeutic grade Essential Oils are
freely available and safe for home use. Many people diffuse
the oils into the atmosphere of their homes, creating a
virus free and pleasant environment. Many of the oils are
applied directly to the skin to receive almost immediate
benefit from many ailments.
Others are inhaled for relief from headaches, nausea,
emotional release, etc.
Nature's Most Effective Delivery Agent...
Because Essential Oils contain such high amounts of
oxygenating molecules, they act as an effective delivery
agent to bring food nutrients THROUGH the cell wall to feed
the cell nucleus.
Without an adequate delivery agent to assist the cell to
receive needed nutrients, the cell can become deprived of
needed nutrition. Without adequate nutrition, the cell wall
thickens hindering further delivery of nutrients. When
malnutrition occurs, the cell begins to deteriorate,
creating a host for disease-causing pathogens. Essential
Oils are known for their ability to "fly" through the
thickest cell walls. They have the ability to restore
diseased and malnourished cells back to health. In fact,
EO's are nature's most effective catalyst and delivery
agent for feeding your body's several trillion cells.
