Purification

2014-09-14 15.21.25

 

Purification is amazing! It’s a blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Lavadin, and Myrtle.

It’s in the homemade bug spray that I make (and it works great)!

I also use it on my bug bites to alleviate the itch.

Putting a couple of drops in the trash can help eliminate the stink!  (Especially diaper stink)

I have also been known to put a couple of drops in the washer and run (the load that’s spent a bit too much time just sitting in there) a rinse cycle to refresh and eliminate the “moldy” smell.

When dinner has been burned, this has eliminated the after smell when we diffuse it.

My grandma smokes like a chimney, especially in her car.  While she was recovering from surgery, my aunt ran the diffuser with Purification in her car for three cycles.  My aunt said that it didn’t completely eliminate the smell, but it was drastically better.

This is also a good addition when you diffuse Thieves!

 

The Essential Oils Pocket Reference 6th Edition says:

“This purifying blend cleanses and disinfects the air and neutralizes mildew, cigarette smoke, and disagreeable odors.  It disinfects and cleans cuts, scrapes, and bites from spiders, bees, hornets, and wasps” (pg. 169)

Healing Oils of the Bible Chapter 2

 

Chapter two is amazing.  It’s titled How and Why Oils Can Heal.  It is all about the biology of essential oils and how they work.

The chapter starts out with the author calling us to take responsibility for our own health.  He wants us to use our brains and ask for God’s guidance to maintain it.  ”Much of what is called “alternative medicine” in today’s terminology is actually “original medicine”-that which was effective thousands of years ago but which has been forgotten (suppressed) and supplanted by the chemical/medical industry of modern times” (13).  ”Scientific medicine does not have all the answers.  In fact, if you truly want to be healed, well, and whole they hardly have any of the answers-especially when it comes to chronic diseases” (13).  ”The beauty of oils as medicines is that they don’t have negative side effects like the synthetic drugs and chemicals of modern pharmacology” (19).  Essential oils free you from the cyclical, money making trap of chemical concoctions.

One aspect that makes essential oils so effective is their “infinitesimal sizes.”  They are so small they can cross the blood-brain barrier.  Essential oils work in our bodies in much the same fashion as they do in plants.  ”Thus, they can support and balance our endocrine, circulatory, digestive, nervous and reproductive systems.  They can clear our sinuses and lungs to help us breathe better.  They can help us metabolize our nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.  They can also boost the natural defenses of our immune systems so we can fight off disease by our own abilities” (16).  ”… the amazing abundance of healing properties of essential oils, they are also the world’s most powerful antioxidants that can gobble up free radicals in our bodies” (17).

 

On page 17, the author lists the most gentle Biblical oils as: sandalwood, balm, bay, bdellium, coriander, cedarwood, cumin, cypress, frankincense, galbanum, henna, juniper, myrrh, onycha, acacia, and spikenard.  The stronger oils include: anise, calamus, cassia, cinnamon, dill, fir, hyssop, mint, mustard seed, pine, terebinth and wormwood.

 

This book also talks about the correlation of our emotions and physical illness.  ”Essential oils of every species cross the blood-brain barrier.  This makes them uniquely able to address disease, not only from a physical level, but from a more basic and fundamental level-that of the emotions which are often the root cause of physical illness” (27).

 

Ready for some biology?  Pages 28 and 29 go all in!  Here are a few snippets, but I highly recommend reading these two pages thoroughly!

“But one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 400,000 molecules.”

“… the most important function performed by phenols and phenylpropanoids is that they clean the receptor sites on the cells. ”

“… the most important ability of the monoterpenes is that they can reprogram miswritten information in the cellular memory (DNA) (restoring God’s image, Genesis 1:26). With improper coding in cellular memory, cells malfunction and diseases result, including lethal ones, such as cancer.”

“… sesquiterpenes can delete that garbled information.  At the same time the oxygen carried by sesquiterpenes molecules creates an environment where cancer cells can’t reproduce.  Hence, sesquiterpenes deliver cancer cells a double punch-one that disables their coded misbehavior and a second that stops their growth.”

 

On page 34 he lists “Six Ways that Essential Oils Support Us:”

  1. “As fighters against unfriendly microbes.
  2. As balancers of bodily functions.
  3. As raisers of our bodily frequencies
  4. As antioxidants that purify our systems.
  5. As clearers of negative emotional baggage.
  6. As uplifters of our spiritual awareness.”

Here are books that were mentioned in this chapter:

Healing Oils of the Bible Chapter 1

 

Chapter 1 is titled God, the First Aromatherapist.  It’s main focus is on the fact that when God created Adam and Eve, he placed them in a garden.  This garden was supposed to be able to sustain and provide for their every need.  ”This suggests that God’s original plan was that his children be in contact with essential oils-living and breathing in their presence throughout life” (9).  On page 1, the book states, “Perhaps a lesson to be learned from the story of creation in Genesis is that God intended that we live in an environment permeated with the gentle scents of essential oils” because “They are emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically healing.  God has imbued the aromatic molecules of plants, not only with the power to heal us when we are ill, but to nurture and preserve our health when we are well just by breathing them-even in minute quantities.”

Diffusing gives us the best of both worlds, we get all the comfort and convenience that comes with modern technology, while enjoying the benefits of essential oils, like God had intended.  ”The emotionally uplifting effects of inhaling the fragrances of oils are alluded to in Psalms, Proverbs, Isaiah, and Hebrews, but not discussed.  The spiritual attributes of oils are suggested in many places in the Bible…but are not explained” (5).  The Bible is not a book about essential oils or aromatherapy.  However, essential oils were such a natural part of the lives of the people that they are alluded to, but an explanation isn’t given because it is assumed that everyone knew about them and used them in their daily lives.

Page nine is very interesting.  It talks about the Egyptian embalming process and compares it to the burial practices that were followed in Jesus’ time.  The Egyptians would use “cedarwood, frankincense, and myrrh” … “rosemary, juniper, and cinnamon” this process took forty days to complete.  The coffins were also usually made out of cedarwood.  During the New Testament era, sandalwood was used.  Basil was used in Jesus’ day.

This book is very interesting and full of information.  Get a copy and follow along!  :)
