Essential Oils

Part of my doctoral dissertation was on “essential oils”, namely tea tree, cedar wood and hinoki oil. Essential oils are the purest kinds of oils that exist. They are natural and come from its own tree kind. The liquid out from the plant comes from steam distillation from the plant stem, leaves, flowers, seeds, branches, and roots. Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades with the popularity of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is a branch of alternative medicine which claims essential oils and other aromatic compounds have curative effects. An entire chapter in my book is dedicated to these oils.

Some research has shown its effects on the healing process while there is still much more that need to be known of them. Some people refer to them as “healing plants”.

Revelation 22:2 says “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations”. This leads me to believe that the oils from the trees should not be overlooked. Tip #140 :in my book mentions a few of the most popular aromatic plant oils and their uses:
Peppermint oil- digestive disorders
Sweet orange- depression and anxiety
Rosemary oil- muscular pains, mental stimulant
Sandalwood oil- depression,anxiety and nervous tension,
Tea tree oil-respiratory problems, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral
Lavendar oil- headaches, insomnia, burns, aches and pains

I have dedicated an entire chapter in my book on these oils. Certain allergies along with positive mood and behavioral swings attribute to essential oils.

Coconut oil, apple cedar vinegar, turmeric, garlic, ginger, raw honey and lemons are just a few that have shown a benefit. For further reading, I suggest reading “How to use Superfoods as medicine”
