So many people in the world report successful use of the essential oil in the treatment of many health diseases, but the mainstream medical community attempts to dismiss their reports. The essential oils are everywhere. If you follow any blog, you will find the essential oils in survival, DIY, natural health and mommy blogs. The question now is: do the essential oils really work, or they are just one expensive fragrant trickery?
What are essential oils?
Essential oils bring the physical properties of plants and flowers in a highly concentrated form. Through the different methods of distillation, the volatile components of the plant’s oil are drawn out from its leaves, flowers, roots or branches. Essential oils bring the biologically active volatile combination in a concentrated form that present therapeutic benefits in just small amounts.
The most usual groups of chemical parts found in the essential oils are alcohols, terpenes, esters, aldehydes, ketones, and phenols. Most of the essential oils are antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antioxidant. In some essential oils the antioxidant value is really amazing. Just one ounce of the popular Clove Oil contains the antioxidant capacity of 48 gallons of beet juice, 120 quarts of blueberries, or 450 lbs of carrots.
There are 3 types of terpenes in the essential oils:
Monoterpenes, Sesquiterpenes and Phenylpropanoids, which is also called Hemiterpenes.
Monoterpenes – they can be found in most of the essential oils. They offer many health properties, but the most essential ability of the monoterpenes is that they are able to reprogram miswritten information in the cellular memory. With the incorrect coding in the DNA, cells breakdown and diseases result, like the cancer.
Sesquiterpenes – can be found in:
- Cedarwood – 98%
- Vetiver – 97%
- Spikenard – 93%
- Sandalwood (Aloes) – 90%
- Black Pepper – 74%
- Patchouli – 71%
- Myrrh – 62%
- Ginger – 59%
Viruses, cancer and bacteria have a hard time surviving in an oxygenated surrounding. Sesquiterpenes can also delete or deprogram miswritten codes in the DNA.
Phenylpropanoids – they created conditions unfriendly to viruses, bacteria and fungi. They can be found in:
- Clove – 90%
- Cassia – 80%
- Basil – 75%
- Cinnamon – 73%
- Oregano – 60%
- Anise – 50%
- Peppermint – 25%
The most important thing is that phenylpropanoids clean the receptor sites on our cells. Without these clean receptor sites, the cells can’t communicate, and because of that the body malfunctions, so that will result in diseases.
The real truth about the essential oils
The bacteria have confirmed that they can mutate in order to create different types of resistant strains of “superbugs” to accommodate to the toxic antibiotic drugs. The essential oils have never made a superbug. There have been many studies proving the potency against almost all bacteria, including the MRSA and some other superbugs.
