Essential Oils

with one comment

oils.jpgEssential Oils are a gift from God for our healing, body, mind and soul.  The oils of plants are the “essence” of the plants and contain all of the active chemicals.  There is no nutrition in essential oils, just natural, active chemicals.  These are the naturally occurring chemicals that the drug companies try to make synthetic copies of so that they can patent them and sell them for enough money to pay for the research to develop these synthetic drugs as well as make a tremendous profit. 

           With essential oils, like drugs, you must be careful of side effects, because the rest of the plant has the buffers needed to make them totally safe.  Some oils are totally without dangerous side effects and some are not.  

          This time of year would be a good time to begin your use of essential oils.  The insect repellent that the drug companies want you to use contains DEET.  This is a very harmful chemical and should be avoided.  But, what about the problem of mosquitoes that carry potentially life threatening diseases? 

           Essential oils could be your answer.  There is a relatively new product on the market called TKO Orange.  It is totally non-toxic.  It is made from the bitter white peel of the orange.  It will repel any insects.  You can spray yourr animals to repel fleas and ticks. You can spray across a doorway and ants will not cross it, but even if swallowed it is non-poisonous.  It is available in health food stores and some hardware stores.  

          If you would like to make your own repellent buy a copy of “Aromatherapy for Dummies” by Kathi Keville.  It has many good recipes for essential oils for many household uses and it gives the warnings for the ones that have potential side effects.  

          Essential oils are awesome medicine!  Add them to your medicine cabinet for Better Health, Naturally.
