Even my adult learning & memory processes, alertness & task performance, are notably improved with application of a true Vetiver oil, and with the other EO’s mentioned in this comprehensive article in conjunction with the suggested nutrition + dietary adjustments. I personally use only genuine Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils.
Vetiver EO
The article explains how Vetiver works in terms of changing “brain wave” activity…my Vetiver is improving my beta-theta ratios! 🤔
Lavender
My sleep patterns have also improved REMARKABLY with diffusing
Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) along with true Lavender (Lavandula anguvstifolia) widely known for it’s calming & naturally sedative properties at bedtime over the past year and a half.
The Dr. Mercola article (linked above) explains how, in chemistry terms, that this particular Cedarwood has a super high “sesquiterpene” content (which our local Ontario cedar, for example, does not).
Cedarwood LRG
The aromatic plants created and put on this earth for our BENEFIT are POWERFUL NATURAL CHEMICAL FACTORIES!
If you have some chemistry background like I do, you’ll appreciate that the chemistry of a properly distilled pure essential oil looks like varied combinations of phenolic compounds (phenols), terpenes (monoterpenes or sesquiterpenes), and aldehydes, accounting for their uniqueness & versatility, and explaining how antibiotic-resistant bacteria can outsmart a cookie-cutter antibiotic made in a lab but can never outsmart a high-phenolic essential oil with constant variables in its natural chemical constituents.
We recommend the new book by Dr. Cole Woolley, PhD, entitled Exploring Essential Oils – a great resource for understanding essential oils and how they work in the body.

Aromatherapy & Overcoming Trauma

“The emotional trauma from accidents, death of loved ones, assault, abuse, etc., can implant its devastation deep within the hidden recesses of the mind, causing life-long problems that seem endless. Being able to release such burdens can bring about a new “lease on life” with a return to motivation and vitality.”Essential Oils Desk Reference, Sixth Edition, © 2014

Consider that a pure therapeutic grade essential oil knowledgeably distilled from properly cultivated aromatic plants, contains unique and complex constituents that facilitate each of the top self-care practices (sleep, nourishment, exercise, breathing, grieving, relaxation, and focus) to assist in overcoming the effects of trauma in it’s many and varied forms.

“An essential oil of a single plant species typically contains 100 to 400 different chemical compounds”, writes Dr. David Steward, Ph.D., D.N.M. in his brilliant book on the chemistry of essential oils. “Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) is [a] good example of a thoroughly studied, thoroughly analyzed oil whose constituents have yet to be all discovered…There are over 200 known compounds identified so far and scientists expect that this is only half of the constituents present in Lavender.”1

Q. How are pure therapeutic grade essential oils distilled from aromatic plants, able to impact the emotional brain through olfaction (our sense of smell) and act as clearers of emotional baggage, uplift, improve mood, and lower depression?

A. Because of the active chemical constituents found naturally therein, and the way our noses are wired into the brain.

Did you know that we do not actually smell with our noses, but rather, with our brain?

olfactory-limbic-bw-graphic

We “smell” with our olfactory system – the nerves that connect directly to the amygdala, the “diencephalon” – or Limbic System. It involves several organs, including the thalamus, hypothalamus, pineal gland, and pituitary gland, all known as the central brain or “emotional brain” and includes not only neural cortex, but endocrine glands as well. It functions, therefore, both electrically and chemically via hormones. (Not surprising to learn that the emotional brain secretes hormones, while the intellectual brain does not).

The Limbic system is the storage center for our feelings and emotional experiences. This part of our brain cannot be communicated to with spoken or written language. Because it responds only to smell, therapeutic grade essential oils provide a powerful means to contact this non-verbal portion of our brains.

Commenting on how the emotional brain works, Dr. David Stewart, Ph.D., D.N.M., writes, “Think of the central brain as a librarian that files and catalogues our emotional memories. Our body is the library. Whenever we experience an emotion, the central brain takes it and files it somewhere in  your body. It could be in your heart, your intestines, your lungs, a specific joint or muscle, or some organ like the liver or kidneys. In order to recall and access that memory, the emotional brain (the librarian) has to locate it in its card index and call it up from wherever it has been stacked in your body. It can then pass it on to the frontal lobes of your brain where it can be consciously recalled, revitalized, re-experienced, and/or articulated.”2

Specific molecular constituents in therapeutic grade essential oils, because of their infinitesimally small size, have the ability not only to cross the blood-brain barrier, but also to stimulate this center of emotions, uplifting, relieving, and releasing deep buried emotion and grief, improving mental awareness, depression, and attitude.

These active molecules are in three classes of oxygenated hydrocarbons, including terpenes, phenols and phenylpropanoids.
The molecular chemistry of properly distilled Frankincense essential oil, for example, includes up to 82% Monoterpenes, a most important group of oxygenated hydrocarbons found in essential oils, thought to restore or awaken the correct information in the cell’s memory (DNA). Other essential oils high in Monoterpenes include those properly distilled from Citrus peel (Lemon / Orange / Grapefruit / Bergamot), Cypress, Black Pepper, Lavender, Rosemary, Juniper, Ravintsara, and Fir. 3  In terms of the aromatherapeutic properties of essential oils Monoterpenes tend to be analgesic, antiseptic, decongestant, and to act as driver oils amplifying the effects of a previously applied oil.4
Myrrh, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang essential oils, when properly harvested, distilled, and bottled, are high in Sesquiterpenes, another group of infinitesimally small oxygenated hydrocarbon molecules, thought to actually delete or erase the bad, miswritten information from cellular memory (DNA), or unscramble it so cells can function normally. Aromatherapeutic properties of Sesquiterpenes include being analgesic, sedative, anti-anxiety, and antidepressant.5
Therapeutic grade essential oils also contain purgative Phenolic compounds. Phenols and phenylpropanoids have a purifying effect cleaning the Receptor Sites at the cellular level, and are thought to be the initiators of healing processes. Full of energy and very stimulating, Phenols have a purifying effect at the cellular level, cleaning cellular receptor sites, and clearing the way for the many other types of healing compounds in the oils to carry out their divinely designated assignments. Clove bud essential oil contains 67% Phenolic compounds, not to mention it’s incredibly high Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity rating. Other therapeutic grade essential oils high in Phenolic compounds include Cinnamon, Thyme, Tarragon, Basil, Fennel, and Oregano.

In a November 2011 in the Yale Scientific Magazine, Cynthia Deng explains how essential oil molecules stimulate olfactory receptors and are linked to specific memories…

“Olfactory sensory neurons carry the signals from the receptors to the olfactory bulb, which filters and begins processing the input signals of the [essential oil]. Mitral cells then carry the output signals from the olfactory bulb to the olfactory cortex, which allows you to perceive and recognize the [scent of that specific aromatic]…Interestingly, the mitral cells do not only lead to the olfactory cortex, they also carry the signals from the [essential oil] to other areas in the brain’s limbic system. Some mitral cells connect directly to the amygdala, the brain structure involved in emotional learning and memory. Indeed, the olfactory system is the only sensory system that involves the amygdala and the limbic system in its primary processing pathway. This link explains why smells are often linked to specific memories.”6

In an August 2016 article posted on ‘Aces Too High News’, science reporter Donna Jackson Nakazawa asks another century-old Question….
Q. “…Shouldn’t physicians consider the whole patient – body and mind – so that they can suggest [behavioural] health tools that will alleviate both the root causes and the symptoms of disease?”7
Research begun in 1996 and over 1500 peer-reviewed studies since, have replicated the same findings…that women who faced three types of childhood adversity had a 60% greater risk of being hospitalized with an auto-immune disease as an adult.
Similar links exist between childhood stressors and adult heart disease, diabetes, migraines, irritable bowel disease, cancer, and depression.
Nakazawa writes, “All disease is multifactorial. Past trauma is one of those factors. I can’t help but think of how my own story might have been different if the medical community had been trauma-aware…and had offered therapeutic interventions.”8
A. Unadulterated therapeutic grade essential oils provide an answer to how we might be able to help ourselves to better health and to non-medically offload deep burried emotional experience, trauma, and grief.

Single Essential Oils: Frankincense & Sacred Frankincense / (Boswellia carteri) & (Boswellia sacra)

“Frankincense is good for everything from gout to a broken head.” [Egyptian saying] Today we might say, “Frankincense is good for everything from head to toe.”

“Used to treat every conceivable ill known to man”, frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it. It is mentioned in one of the oldest known medical records, the Ebers Papyrus (16th century BC), an ancient Egyptian list of 877 prescriptions and recipes.

In ancient times wine was fortified with Frankincense to aid digestion. Frankincense is the second-most mentioned oil in the Bible next to Myrrh. It is referred to eighty-one times throughout scripture, including references to its use in stopping a plague (Numbers 16:46-50) and it being gifted by wise men to Mary and Joseph (Matthew 2:11, Isaiah 60:6) for anointing and care of their Christ child, Jesus, throughout his infancy to keep Him strong and healthy. By this time, it was commonly understood that Frankincense was a healing oil good for almost anything from scrapes and bruises to the common cold.

YL Frankincense

Frankincense, with it’s spicy, woodsy, sweet aroma, has been diffused or burned in churches for centuries and is found in many modern colognes and perfumes, including the women’s perfume Youth Dew® by Estee Lauder, and the men’s fragrances, Aqua Brava®, Giorgio®, and Old Spice®. Frankincense blends well with Lavender, Basil, Cypress, Pine, Myrrh, Bergamot, Patchouli, Citrus oils, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, and Sandalwood.

frankincense tree

Named after the Scottish botanist Dr. John Boswell, and British surgeon and herbalist, Dr. H.J. Carter, Frankincense oil is steam distilled from the Oleo-gum-resin that is tapped from the trunks and limbs of the Frankincense tree, a small tree native to North Africa, which grows today in Oman, Yemen, and Somalia. Collecting the gum-resin in the distant and arid regions in which the trees grow naturally, is a painstaking and tedious process, accounting for the high cost of the precious essential oil.

The molecular chemistry of Frankincense:

  • Monoterpenes – up to 82% > reprogram cellular memory promoting permanent healing, maintaining normal cellular regeneration.
  • Sesquiterpenes – 8%
  • Alcohols – 4%
  • Esters – yes
  • Ketones – yes

Key chemical constituents in Frankincense include Alpha-Pinene (30-65%), Limonene (8-20%), Alpha-Thujene (up to 15%), and Beta-Caryophyllene (up to 5%). The latter of which provides local anaesthetic activity.

Frankincense ~ Properties / Actions in the human body:

  • analgesic
  • antispasmodic
  • calms the nervous system – antidepressant / anti-anxiety / uplifting / grief / emotional release
  • antibacterial / bactericidal – immune stimulant – a good cleanser for boils, ulcers, mouth ulcers, and wounds.
  • astringent / tones and contracts tissue – regenerating to aging skin
  • anti-inflammatory
  • antioxidant
  • antitumoral
  • cellular regeneration
  • expectorant – pulmonary antiseptic – eases coughs, chronic bronchitis, laryngitis, and asthma attacks or shortness of breath
  • generally aids in digestion and in expelling gas from intestines
  • diuretic properties – urinary tract infections / cystitis / urethritis

Uses & Application for pure therapeutic grade Frankincense essential oil:

  • Inhale* directly or Diffuse
  • Apply to skin – may be applied NEAT or undiluted, or dilute 1:1 in a carrier oil
  • Apply to Vita Flex points (feet / hands)
  • Internally as a therapeutic dietary supplement diluted 1:4 with vegetable oil or olive oil in a capsule.

*Frankincense resin may also be burned as incense in an incense burner for inhalation.

Pure Essential Oils = Free Radical Scavengers

What does “ORAC” mean? You see ORAC ratings listed for each single essential oil in the Essential Oils Desk Reference, Sixth Edition (1.), but what does it mean? Did you know that many of the new Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oils introduced to our Canadian market this month have some of the highest ORAC scores of all the essential oils?!?…

ORAC stands for “Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity” – meaning the capacity of a plant substance to ABSORB free radicals (bad guys) which damage cells in our body, ultimately causing premature aging, oxidation – hardening of arteries, cell mutation and disease processes.

Essential oils have the highest ORAC scores of any known substances…this equals HUGE free radical scavenging activity!

[GEEK-TALK: Each essential oil undergoes a lab test which quantifies its total antioxidant capacity, measured as ‘trolox equivalents’ (or uTE/100g) using the antioxidant trolox (i.e. vitamin E) as a standard]….

Here are ORAC score of some new YLTG oils to our Canadian market…(LAVENDER EO for comparison has an ORAC score of 360 uTE/100g* and LEMON EO = 660 uTE/100g*)…

PATCHOULI = 49,400*
VETIVER = 74,300*
BLACK PEPPER = 79,700*
LAURUS NOBILIS (Bay Laurel) = 98,900*
GINGER = 99,300*
NUTMEG = 158,100*
ROSE (Rosa damascene) essential oil = 160,400*
FENNEL = 238,400*
CORIANDER = 298,300*

[F.Y.I. and just to blow your mind…MYRRH has an ORAC score of 379,800*, and CLOVE = 1,078,700*]

We benefit from the free radical scavenging activity of pure essential oils simply by inhaling or diffusing them, and applying them topically, as their infinitesimally small molecules permeate our bloodstream via the lungs when inhaled, and flood our entire cellular matrix with free-radical scavenging molecules.

On a nutrition note, and by comparison, here are the ORAC scores of a few HEALTHY antioxidant-rich FOODS (berries, fruits, & vegetables) including Chinese (NingXIA) Wolfberries, one of earth’s most powerful antioxidant fruits!

Wolfberries

Carrots ORAC score 210
Oranges ORAC score 750
Beets ORAC score 840
Raspberries ORAC score 1,220
Strawberries ORAC score 1,540
Blueberries ORAC score 2,400
Kale ORAC score 1,770
Chinese Wolfberries ORAC score 30,300

Single Essential Oils: CEDARWOOD (Cedrus atlantica)

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Imagine an essential oil so sweet, mellow, warm, and soothing, with such a wide array of practical applications [see MODERN USES OF CEDARWOOD Essential Oil below] that you won’t want to be without it in your ‘natural medicine cabinet’.

Properly distilled Cedarwood essential oil, with its high concentration of sesquiterpene molecules (see below) encourages serotonin production, which is then converted to melatonin in the pineal gland, the sleep inducing hormone. Cedarwood is is a lovely essential oil to diffuse at bedtime, and while sleeping, to create a healthy, restorative sleep cycle. Cedarwood combined with Lavender is a calming, relaxing blend.

Distilled from the leaves and wood of the Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica), today we have categorized and documented the health benefiting properties of Cedarwood essential oil, as antiseptic (destroys infection-causing bacteria), antispasmodic (prevents or relieves cramps or spasms), tonic (strengthens the whole body or a specific organ), astringent (contracts and tones tissues), diuretic (increases flow of urine), emmenagogue (encourages and regulates menstrual flow), expectorant (helps remove excess mucous from bronchial and sinus passages, insecticidal, sedative (reduces stress in the body and calms the nervous system), fungicidal (prevents and destroys fungal infection), and antiseborrheic (prevents excessive secretion of sebum in the skin that can clog pores).  1

Cedarwood (Cedrus atlanticus), found in Greece, the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, Algeria, and in the U.S.A., is the species of cedar most closely related to the majestic biblical ‘Cedars of Lebanon’ (Cedrus lebani), who’s forests were exploited and decimated by ancient kings – first by Egyptian Pharaoh’s, and then king David, and king Solomon, for medicinal and building purposes, until they were all but extinct.

Cedarwood may be the first and most ancient of the distilled essential oils. The Chinese, Tibetans, Sumerians, and Egyptians, were using Cedarwood for hygienic, disinfecting, and embalming purposes more than 5,000 years ago. There is evidence that Egyptians were distilling Cedarwood oil as far back as 3,500 B.C., and it is mentioned on a Babylonian tablet dated 1800 B.C. Egyptians used Cedarwood to build aromatic and durable temples and dwellings, to make musical instruments, coffins, and boats.

Cedars of Lebanon

King Solomon traded 280,000 bushels of grain and 1,200 gallons of oil (probably olive, and perhaps some almond, walnut, pistachio, or sesame oil, and some essential oils) with King Hiram of Tyre (Phoenicia) for the Lebanese Cedrus lebani cedar trees to build the temple and his home in Israel.

Though King Solomon was wise in many things his wisdom did not extend to awareness of sustainability and reforestation, as thousands of workers stripped the lush forestlands of Lebanon near Tyre, and floated the wood by sea down to Jerusalem.

“Of all the essential oils in the world, Cedarwood contains the highest concentration of sesquiterpenes (98%)…

What is Sesquiterpene?

…The sesquiterpenes in Cedarwood have the ability to pass through the blood-brain barrier and oxygenate the brain directly upon inhalation by way of the nasal passages and the olfactory nerves. It has even been suggested that Cedarwood oil might prevent senility and Alzheimer’s disease.” 2

blood-brain-barrier


Sesquiterpenes are oxygenating, mood elevating, and deprogram miswritten or garbled codes in the DNA.

“The idea of a Cedar dwelling for a king”, writes Dr. David Stewart, “as well as a place for worship, is an excellent application of the power of essential oils. Cedar is a fragrant wood, due to its oil content, whose aroma lasts indefinitely…It is probably no coincidence that both David and Solomon chose cedar as the wood for their home and temple.

For a king, who has to make decisions every day that affect thousands of subjects, living in an environment where they would inhale Cedarwood oil every day would contribute toward wise judgements and help keep their consciousness elevated on a spiritual level. Perhaps the wisdom of Solomon was even greater than we thought and included a sophisticated knowledge of essential oils and how they could assist him in ruling his kingdom in an effective way…” 2

Oxygenate and Energize with Genuine Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

Mortar with medicine cross, fresh herbs and essential oil bottle

The first thing to consider regarding an essential oil, is where it comes from. Essential oils are the natural, volatile liquids that are extracted from plants – a wide variety, including trees, grasses, shrubs, flowers, herbs, fruits, berries, and seeds. The oils have the characteristic fragrance of the plants from which they are extracted, but their therapeutic benefits go beyond our olfactory system or sense of smell! So you want to know where your oils come from – what seed variety was grown, how the plants are cultivated, distilled, tested, and how the oils are bottled and sealed. Is attention being given to quality and sustainability? You do not want oils that have been adulterated or diluted. You want the purest essential oil from seed – to seal.

Different extraction methods are used for different types of plant material. Essential oils from herbaceous plants are generally distilled, fruits are cold pressed, resin from trees and shrubs is collected and distilled, and ‘absolute’ oils from delicate flower petals are extracted using pure alcohol which is removed through evaporation.

In come cases it takes an enormous amount of plant material to produce an essential oil. On the extreme end, it takes 4000 pounds of Bulgarian roses to produce one pound of rose absolute essential oil. And 100 pounds of Lavender plant to produce one pound of Lavender essential oil.

Biochemical Diversity of Plants and the Human Body:

Each essential oil is typically a complex mixture of often hundreds of individual compounds, just as each species of plant the oils are extracted from are chemically very heterogeneous or diverse in their effect, unlike synthetic manmade chemicals that have basically one action.

It is this biochemical diversity of the plants themselves that explains the wide array of beneficial effects an essential oil may have on the human body. A single drop of pure lavender essential oil, for example, can be antiseptic, calming, help with allergies, and alleviate headaches, PMS, and motion sickness.

Essential Oils Increase Oxygen Intake:

Plants in nature are chemical factories! They take in the elements of the earth and sun, converting them into molecules including carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. These are the basic fuels which we break down to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is the ‘high octane’ fuel in the human body. Essential oils contain oxygen and glycosides which convert into glucose in the human body, which is the raw material for ATP.

We know that the immune system can be greatly improved by the general increase in movement of blood which carries oxygen to our cells, and by the decrease of the viscosity of the blood in our body. Enhanced circulation and is vital to good health as it effects the function of every cell, and thus every organ including the brain.

cell-oxygen

Oxygen is essential to provide efficient energy and nutrient transfer to every cell of our body. Constituents in essential oils have been proven not only to increase oxygen intake of the cells but also to enhance cellular respiration. Increasing circulation in general will increase blood oxygen and cellular respiration. But when combined with essential oils containing oxygenating molecules, cellular and organ function are significantly improved.

Oxygen is also the enemy of many things that are harmful to the body. Bacteria, for example, does not require oxygen for growth and will react negatively or even die if oxygen is present.

The Itty Bitty Nitty Gritty:

When two or more atoms join together they become a molecule. Essential oils are made up of molecule groups. There are many different chemical constituents that make up a single essential oil. Individual essential oils may have anywhere from 200 to 800 different constituents! Specific molecular constituents in essential oils known as aldehydes, ketones, and esters, protect their oxygenating molecules.

Ketones & Aldehydes

The value of using ONLY genuine

Therapeutic Grade essential oils:

More and more people are returning to essential oils for health and wellbeing and will continue to do so as scientific research, anecdotal and clinical research continues to demonstrate their effectiveness.

However, in order for an oil to possess all of its beneficial chemical constituents, and have the energy capacity one would expect from that specific oil – it must be grown from organic non-GMO seed, in just the right soil, cultivated just the right way, properly distilled, and tested and bottled with a SEED to SEAL promise of all of the aforementioned. The ONLY company with the experience and testing that can guarantee this  with every oil they put into the hands of its members (serving both wholesale and retail customers) is Young Living Essential Oils.

ESSENTIAL OIL CONSTITUENTS THAT WORK AT THE DNA LEVEL OF YOUR BODY:   The human body has an amazing affinity with the chemical constituents found in nature! The two basics groups of chemical constituents found in plants are ‘hydrocarbons’, and ‘oxygenating compounds’, including  Phenols, Terpenes (Sesquiterpenes and Monoterpenes) Esters, Aldehydes, Ketones, and Flavonoids. Some of these constituents actually work at the DNA level in the human body.                                                                                                                 DNA strand

Phenols have a purifying effect cleaning the Receptor Sites at the cellular level.

Sesquiterpenes may delete bad information from cellular memory, or unscramble it so cells can function normally.

Monoterpenes are thought to “mend”, “restore”, or “awaken” the correct information in the cell memory.

EO Molecules Chart (1)

EO's Inhalation vs Topical

Certainly the body has an affinity with nature’s essential oils, which absorb and pass through the body with great ease. Many scientific experiments have shown that essential oils can travel with relative speed when applied to the skin or inhaled.

Essential oil molecules are so microscopic that they can penetrate the fatty layers of the skin. The lipid solubility of essential oils allows them to travel transcellularly or directly through the cells.

Essential oils will go into the body in just 2-3 seconds. It takes only twenty-two seconds for essential oil molecules to reach the brain, and two minutes until they can be found in the bloodstream. Essential oils will saturate the entire cellular matrix within twenty minutes, and are completely metabolized in 2 1/2 hours.

Their penetrating ability through fatty tissue layers into the interstitial fluids may explain why essential oils enhance circulation and why massaging the skin with essential oils can be so beneficial.

Our Electrical Capacity, Dis-eases, Dis-orders, and Essential Oils:

Lastly, it is important to learn that the body frequency in a healthy person is higher than in someone who is not. Healthy cells in the human body have a certain energetic frequency. And the things we consume affect our body frequency.

What gives us this ‘electrical capacity’? There’s a slight imbalance between potassium and sodium ions inside and outside our cells, and this imbalance sets the stage for our electrical capacity. You’re probably familiar with the water soluble ‘electrolyte’ minerals, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which also have the ability to carry an electrical charge in cellular fluids, enabling the synapses to work between nerves and the smooth running of our muscles.

Because of these ‘electrical or energetic’ ways in which our bodies work, our health can be greatly affected by high or low frequencies within the body. It makes sense, therefore, that we can affect change by introducing different or higher frequencies, and in doing so, prevent, treat, or cure our own dis-eases, and dis-orders. Scientists have discovered that each illness has a different frequency which is always within a definite range, and that administering higher frequency treatments, unhealthy or diseased cells regain complete vital force while healthy cells in that same area are not affected.

How can essential oils affect energetic frequency with our body? Protons which are electrically positive, and electrons which carry the electrically negative charge, create electrical frequencies that are measurable in essential oils. In fact, clinical research shows that essential oils have some of the highest frequencies of any substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease cannot live:
