I.    Why Use Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils - Properties

       I feel privileged to be able to use Frankincense, which used to be worth more than gold.
       (read the research on Pubmed. )

       Watch this Youtube video about Frankincense being used for cancer:

        Please note that Quality of essential oil is paramount.  The properties described on this web site are only of therapeutic grade essential oils.

      Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils:
  • Are volatile and concentrated, slowly distilled at low temperature/pressure to extract most plant constituents; grown from healthy seeds in optimal conditions     
  • 50 to 70 times more therapeutically potent than the herbs or plants they are derived from
        Note: ORAC of blueberries is 2,400, wolfberries 25,300, clove 1,078,700.     Read more:
  • Have a small molecular size and lipid-soluble structure similar to the makeup of our cell membranes
    • Molecular size is less than 500 amu
    • One drop contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules.  We have 100 trillion cells in our bodies, and that's a lot. But one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 40,000 molecules. 
  • Penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the blood and tissue 
         Therapeutic grade essential oils get absorbed thru the skin in just 30 seconds!

        When topically applied to the feet or elsewhere, they travel throughout the body in a matter of 
  • Carry oxygen into cells and carry waste products out  
        Some oils, like cedarwood and frankincense, can increase levels of oxygen in the brain by up to

        Research indicates that when essential oils are diffused, they can increase atmospheric oxygen and 
        provide negative ions, breaking down potentially harmful chemicals and rendering them nontoxic, 
        inhibiting bacterial growth.         
  • Cleansing
      Cleanse our cellular receptor sites of pharmaceutical drugs, petrochemicals, and other
      disruptors of intercellular communication  

       Balance PH
      "... they increase the alkalinity of the body, not because oils are alkaline, but because of how they respond to acids....
The aggressive parts of an acid are the three hydrogen ions H+ that cause bodily damage wherever they circulate..   When a therapeutic grade oil enters the body, its molecules willingly sacrifice themselves to the acid, engulfing and neutralizing the H_ ions, so that you don't have to suffer their mischief anymore.  With a reduction of H+ ions in the body, pH is raised toward a healthier alkaline line near acid in and of themselves..."
  • Balancing
      "An essential oil works toward balance, and homeostasis means that the same oil can work in different directions depending on the needs of the plant or person.  

      For example, Oregano oil will kill hostile microbes while nurturing those that are friendly, and
      Melaleuca Alternifolia will take care of the fungus.  Angelica oil can stimulate a uterus to contract or 
      to relax depending on the need,  Myrtle oil is an adaptigen that can stimulate an increase or decrease 
      in thyroid activity depending on a person's condition, Ocotea balances blood sugar and pressure.     

      Drugs are incapable of such intelligent discrimination and act only in preprogrammed direction, like 
      robots, whether beneficial or not"  (think of antibiotics)

  3. strongly bactericidal, immune-stimulant, tonifying, strengthening, warming (phenols)
  4. antiseptic, stimulant, anti-infectious (phenylpropane derivatives)
  5. antiseptic, heart tonifying, diuretic, immune stimulant, microbicidal (alcohols)
  6. spasmolytic, fungicidal, soothing to the skin, direct action on CNS, anti-inflammative (esters)
  7. balancing, spasmolytic, carminative (ethers)
  8. anti-inflammative, cooling, anti-allergic (sesquiterpene hydrocarbons)    

  • Perform all the functions in our body they perform in plants
