In humans, many provide support for every system in the body: your skeletal system, muscular system, circulatory system, endocrine system and your hormones, respiratory system, and immune system. They support brain health and a healthy weight.They have been used for thousands of years as beauty aids and for emotional support. An oil in a diffuser can soothe a child’s tough day at school and provide a calming effect when you’ve had a stressful day at work. Oils can be used as an alternative to cleaning chemicals in the home. You can literally start swapping out every single chemical in your home to live a purer lifestyle, and you can do it without breaking the bank!
You do not need to be an aromatherapist to use them. In most cases, just rub it topically into the skin. There are three main ways to get oils into your system: the English apply it topically—rub it on the skin; the French ingest and cook with it; the Germans diffuse and inhale, which is the most effective method because it doesn’t have to pass through the digestive system.
How do they enter—and how long do they last?
Tests have shown oils reach the heart, liver, and thyroid in three seconds when inhaled; they were found in the bloodstream in 26 seconds when applied topically. Expulsion of essential oils takes three to six hours in a normal, healthy body.
ON THE FLIP SIDE…
Look at the ingredient list of what you have in your bathroom and kitchen. Every day we put products on our skin, in our body, and breathe them; but many of these products contain damaging chemicals. The average woman applies over 300 chemicals every day to her body just through soaps, makeup, shampoos, and hair care products. Eighty of those products are applied before breakfast!
A place to share our oily experiences as we continue on this journey of health. We are here to share how they continue to be beneficial for us.
After dealing with a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and having a new skull put in, all Dr's could do was give me harmful narcotics for pain. Thanks to my ICU nurse that put oils on me, they have completely changed my life and that's not all..........
I would like to share my direct experiences with using essential oils to reduce or eliminate some of the physical effects of my brain injury. After my brain injury occurred, I had seizures, depression, anxiety, unable to eat, tremors experienced in varying parts of my body, inability to walk without a walker, an inability to communicate verbally( Apraxia and Aphasia), extreme skull pain, and a debilitating sensitivity to light, sound (Hyperacusis) smell and taste. I lost my ability to work a job that I loved, to support myself, to live independently, to make independent decisions( temporarily), to walk without aid, to drive, to go to restaurants, shopping centers, theaters, etc., as well as most of my relationships. I began to use essential oils to reduce or eliminate the excruciating skull pain. I started using Frankincense, Rosemary, Clove, Peppermint, Helichrysum and Wintergreen topically whenever I felt pain. I noticed a difference almost immediately. I eventually also ingested this in a capsule, oils I use are safe to ingest. My sleep increased from 2-3 hours to 6-8 hours a night. I was being treated for my seizure condition with a variety of pharmaceuticals with resulting side effects. I began to use Clary Sage as a seizure prevention. I slowly discontinued the pharmaceuticals and solely used this oil. I recently was given an EEG to initiate and monitor seizure pattern. I did not have a seizure during this test and have not had one since the use of this essential oil. My neurologist was amazed that I did not have a seizure and that I also was not using the prescribed medication. I was told to continue doing what I am doing as it seemed to be working, but anti-seizure medications were available to me.
I use other oils which have been beneficial to the other after effects of the injury.
I have almost eliminated my tremors. My light sensitivity has improved greatly. I still have issues with sound (hyperacusis) as I continue to blend oils I will find my solution! My memory continues to improve. My ability to express myself verbally continues to improve. Oils have prevented many of the side effects that were associated with pharmaceuticals.
I am finding that the quality of my life has greatly improved through the use of my essential oils.
All I can say is that this works very well for me. I was a vegan before and I continue to be one, so to me oils are just part of my path to health.
I continue to also discover many ways to use them and create my own recipes.
My story continues to evolve as I continue my quest to my utmost health.
