Are Essential Oils really essential?
Essential. The word means extremely important and necessary. Also basic. Maybe we need to get back to the basics and the saying KISS for “Keep It Simple Stupid” really has some bearing. The same goes with our health and medical care system; however, these things have also turned into a complete mess. Everyone is starting to freak out about things like organic, non-GMO, all natural, nont-hormones, no additives, and the list goes on and on. Honestly, I have to agree with most of these claims. The more WE try to change from what God intended for nature to be, the more problems we are seeing.
Essential oils were the first type of medicines used by man. To explain a little more of what they are in layman’s terms first think of our blood in our body. What does it do? It brings nutrients, macrophages, and oxygen to our organs and to areas of injury in the body. Sometimes when a plant is cut you can see something ooze out of the plant as if the plant is bleeding like when we get a cut and bleed. This is known as the “Life Bood” of the plant, and the essential oil of the plant. The essential oil of the plant is vital to the living processes of the plant and will do the same for the human body when used by us breathing them, ingesting them, and applying them topically. Their cells match our cells and can help create homeostasis in the body UNLIKE ALL SYNTHETIC drugs including OTC and prescribed.
There are studies out there already even though the research is smaller on oils than the research that pharmaceutical companies have on drugs, there is still some research going on out there! For instance, Sacred Frankincense oil by Young Living, actually has REVERSED cancer cells in the poor prognosis of bladder cancer. To my health fitness majors out there, there is research that peppermint oil actually increases VO2 and oxygen uptake in runners! Which I have used it for running and indeed felt a boost myself! Studies have shown that essential oils are also anti-bacterial with the evidence that thieves essential oil blend and lemongrass essential oil killing MIRSA. Also they do what antibiotics in pill form can’t do: they fight viruses. The sooner we start using these, the sooner the rest of America will start using them, at least this is my hope.
So yes! In summary essential oils really are essential. There is a phrase, “there’s an oil for that” that is true because essential oils really can help one reach optimal health and wellness. There are so many out there that one may ask “Where do I start?”. That’s OK because young living does have a GREAT way to get started!
