Aromatherapy is Royal Treatment

AROMATHERAPY IS NOT A LUXURY,

It is an inexpensive way to maintain optimum health and to treat oneself royally, naturally.

1) Exactly how do essential oils transmit healing? Please explain in detail. 
Oils do not transmit healing per se, they transmit or carry chemical constituents which give the aroma and other notable qualities such as repairing/cleansing,  thick/thin and slow/fast —myrrh and lemon for examples, respectively– which in turn facilitate the body’s systems to function properly.
Oils provide an oil-change and tune-up for the body (which is appropriate for HealMobiles!)
Chemical reactions –redness, rashes or interactions of an oil with someone’s skin– may be influenced by that person’s sensitivity or inclination to skin dryness, excessive oiliness or other factors.
Oils enter the body in four ways — inhalation, through skin, by swallowing, and via the body’s  orificies/cavities. There are three perspectives on the healing capacity of essential oils:
British
  • all EOs should be diluted in a fatty oil and no more than 5% should be EOs
  • usually use oils in massage therapy
  • believe most oils are not of a quality that is safe in undiluted applications
German
  • believe in the aroma of oils and popularized the term aromatherapy
  • oils molecules go directly into the brain through olfactory nerves which are connected to the middle of the brain, the amygdala (simply put, the “hard drive” or “OS” for the emotions)
French
  • believe the human being benefits when all four methods of taking oil into the body are used
  • believe oils must be therapeutic in quality
  • emphasis should be on therapy, not just aroma
Most doctors and researchers in the field use the French perspective. Therapeutic-grade oils are produced  following a specialized process beginning with seed quality and ending with distillation, harvesting and quality testing of each batch of oil.
2) Exactly what does a person need to do to access the healing power of oils? How do I set up a therapeutic home environment, including tools needed and cost.  
  • BELIEVE they work, intention often affects outcome
  • test for sensitivity
  • start with a drop and go slowly; a little goes a long way
  • for children and the elderly, use half of the recommendations for ingesting pure oils
  • drink a lot of water (alkaline)
  • Get rid of toxic cleaning agents and toxic health and beauty products
  • Rebuild your medicine cabinet with essential oils and oil-infused supplements
  • Replace “under sink” cleaning products with environmentally friendly products
  • Create your own disinfectants/fresheners using water and oils in a spray bottle
  • eat as organic and green as possible
  • use a diffuser or two to purify air in the home

3. What is the evidence –historic and otherwise– of essential oils facilitating healing?

  • A good overview is provided by the movie, Ancient Secrets of Essential Oils
  • Ancient heiroglyphs to revealed scripture in various religions to
  • Christian suppression to re-ascension in the 20th century
  • renowned Cleveland Clinic uses EOs in the oncology and neonatal ward
  • Based on the profusion of studies validating the effectiveness of essential oils, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has declared many oils and blends GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) and suitable as food additives and food flavoring
