Benefits of Essential Oils and The Immune System

Do you like to use essential oils? A wonderful article I read on Huffington Post, on essential oils and their role on our immune system. If you are not familiar with oils now is a good time (Fall allergies, colds and viruses) to learn a bit about them. There is a ton of information on essential oils, both in books and online. Always check your source however and follow guidelines carefully, as essential oils are very potent and readily absorbed in our blood stream. Usage may cause rashes and reactions if not taken/used as directed. It is also important to check on the quality of the oils; whether it is therapeutic, organic, GRAS quality. There are a lot of essential oils out there that have been diluted and adulterated, so use with caution or consult someone who knows about oils. 
Ask me if you have any questions on essential oils, or how to make health and room spritzers or generally using oils for every day relaxation or ailments. Classes on essential oils are offered throughout the year where you can make your own spritzers and combos.               


More Than A Scent: Essential Oils Aid The Immune System

Posted: Updated:
If you do some research into the Royal English Archives, you'll come across an interesting little tidbit. It's a recipe for "thieves' oils." So the story goes: In the 17th century, when all of Europe was in the thrust of the Black Plague, a small band of marauding thieves seemed immune to the disease. They would enter the homes of Black Plague victims and have no fear of touching the bodies as they searched for jewelry and money. The King demanded to know their secret.
Their secret had to do with the oils they rubbed on their bodies. Because their family was from a long lineage of apothecaries, they had knowledge about how to use oils medicinally and prophylactically against disease. The King got the exact formulation they were using against Black Plague and this saved his entire family from the disease.

Today we think of essential oils as mere pleasant additions to a relaxing massage. But in olden days, some cultures valued oils even more than gold because their powerful healing properties were known.
Essential oils have the same function in the plant as blood has to the human. When you cut yourself, blood comes out of the cut. The blood cleanses the wound and kills bacteria so that regeneration of the tissue can begin. Similarly, when you cut a plant, resin, or the oil of the plant, is released.
Blood is a transporter. It carries nutrients to the cells. Oxygen is the constituent of blood that delivers the blood through the cell walls. When oxygen is taken out of the blood, the cells mutate and give off a toxic gas. This, then, creates a host condition that will breed disease. So, too, with plants. Oils serve as the defense system in plants. These oils oxygenate the plant and carry nutrients, vital elements and chemical constituents to every cell in the plant. They contain each of the plant's healing nutrients including trace minerals, vitamins, hormones, amino acid precursors and other components. They give the plant the ability to destroy infections, stave off infestations, initiate and maintain growth and repair structural damage. The essential oil of the plant is literally the life force of the plant.
When essential oils are applied to human skin, they carry the same healing force as they do to the plant. Because they themselves carry such a high concentration of oxygen, they also produce in the human system the highest level of oxygenating molecules of any substance on Earth. Because the oils are so highly concentrated, they are at least 50 times more therapeutically potent than the plant itself or herbs made from the plant.
Essential oils detoxify the body. Oxygen pushes unwanted chemicals out of the cell. Normal cell function and balance is established only when there is sufficient oxygen.
The absorbability of essential oils into the human system is unsurpassed. If you are deficient in oxygen, your cell membranes will begin to thicken. When this happens, oxygen is not able to get its nutrients through this thick wall. You may have been eating all the nutritional food in the world, but if the blood can't get the nutrients into the cell, you may have well-nourished blood but you won't have well-nourished cells. Essential oils are soluble with the lipids in the cell membrane and thus go through the cellular wall.
In addition, essential oils have the capacity to change the electrical frequency of the body. Our bodies are electrical. So is everything around us, including our television, our lights and our microwave. The difference between us and our electrical appliances is that we have a harmonic, coherent frequency whereas appliances operate at incoherent, chaotic frequencies. Our appliances have the ability to fracture the frequency at which we operate.
We know that the body awake averages a frequency of 62-72 Hz. Disease sets in when the frequency drops. The frequency of the body drops when the body comes into contact with substances that have lower frequencies: junk food, canned or otherwise denatured food, drugs and even synthetic vitamins. Research has shown that merely holding a cup of coffee in your hand can drop your frequency (probably through the aroma which, as we will see, has a more powerful effect on us than any of us would imagine).
The electrical frequency of essential oils ranges between 52 and 320 Hz. They have the highest frequency of any substance known to man. Because they are living substances, their frequency is harmonic with the human frequency. When essential oils come into contact with our bodies, the frequency of our bodies becomes raised to a degree so that we become inhospitable hosts to pathogenic organisms.
The Prescription:
Essential oils can be applied directly to the skin. Within 21 minutes of being placed anywhere on the human body, essential oil will penetrate every cell within the body. We rub our bodies with oils as specific medicines.
Merely breathing in the fragrance of essential oils is a powerful healer. The healing begins in the brain. There are 800 million nerve endings in the nose that detect odors. The nerve from the olfactory bulb extends back toward the mid-brain and then on to the pituitary and pineal glands and finally to the amygdala. At La Casa, each day we pick fresh ylang ylang flowers, eucalyptus, orange, mint, lemongrass or lemon leaves and whatever herbs meet our health needs at the moment. We crush these plants in our hands and just breathe in. We are breathing in the fragrance of the essential oil as it oozes from the plant, just as blood oozes from our skin when we are cut.
Essential oils can also be diffused in the air. Research has shown that oils can kill most air-born microorganisms. A French study colonized 210 various microbes; within 30 minutes of misting the air with a mixture of oils, only four colonies remained alive. You can mist your air with the fragrance of an essential oil by simply placing a few drops of oil -- 10 to 15 -- in a regular plant water mister diluted with some water.
Enough research has been done that we now have a lot of information on what conditions are affected by which essential oils. Possible therapeutic properties of essential oils:
  • Rose and lavender work well to treat insomnia. Rub the oil up and down the spine just before bedtime.
  • Peppermint relieves nausea, vomiting and fever and soothes indigestion.
  • Ylang ylang may reduce hypertension and high blood pressure. Bergamot is thought to be effective for insect bites, cold sores, sore throat and thrush.
  • Clove is one of three essential oils in which no bacteria, virus or fungi can live. It is used regularly in European hospitals.
  • Bitter fennel, dill and coriander have all been shown to aid diabetics in getting off insulin.
  • We also believe that the therapeutic effect of food supplements and herbs is greatly enhanced when essential oils are part of the formula. When herbs and food supplements are prepared for sale, they are dehydrated. This dehydration releases 90 percent of the essential oil of the plant. Without the oil, most of the life force of the plant has been evaporated out. We feel that this is one reason why herbs used today are less effective than when our ancestors used to just go to the fields and pick what they needed. When the essential oil is reintroduced into the supplement, you are guaranteed that the nutrients will reach the cellular level in your body.

Indigo, Crystal & Rainbow Children. Who are they and how can we help?

The requests for sessions by Indigo adults and children, as well as their more recent groupings of Crystal and Rainbow children have become more and more frequent in my practice, so I thought I'd share a little bit of information about these wonderful beings in order to shed some light for them and their parents who are curious and sometimes desperate to understand.

First off let me say that there isn't a ton of information out there about Indigos. However there are a few trusted sources that I will mention at the end of this blog and I will also share information from my personal experiences as a parent of such wonderful beings.

The term Indigo has been used to describe a group of children that have been incarnating on this Earth since the 1960's and that are here with a mission and a purpose. Most Indigos are now in their early thirties as the major wave of them came in in the 1970's but a lot of them continued to come until about 2000 according to most sources. These kids  are highly sensitive and come in with enhanced technological and creative abilities. A lot of times they have been labeled autistic, ADD and ADHD because of their limited capacity to have social interactions, stay on task and their different and sometimes odd (to us) ways of dealing with the world around them. They are wired differently and as I have been told by one "our DNA is different". They see the world around them in a different way than most people; they have a broader view. And the technological advances of our time is old news to them. Indigo's can feel things and know things without being able to explain how.

The Crystal children were the second wave of these sensitive children and started coming in around 2,000 when the Indigos started slowing down. This is a group of kids that are even more sensitive, very powerful, mentally and creatively, and are here to help us reach our next level of evolution. They are even more focused than their indigo counterpart and their demeanor is calmer and peaceful, with a loving heart, while they work as a collective consciousness to raise our vibration.

In this time of spiritual evolution the Indigos are now undergoing a spiritual upgrade so to speak. A transformation which is awakening the Christ within, the Love Force, that uplifts all consciousness. They are coming to be known as the Crystal children - an emerging group of "human angels" to help uplift and guide the human species into a higher state of being. The Crystal children have dropped the dark energy and the anger that a lot of the Indigos where carrying. They are highly telepathic and hence are often not great verbal communicators. For those of them that come in as new babies, they might take a while to start talking as they tend to communicate with their parents with their third eye, sending ideas and feelings to them in a quiet kind of way. They are filled with love, and their aura is bright and luminous. They have deep, meaningful eyes - the kind you would term an "old soul".

All of these individuals are highly empathic and very susceptible to other people's energy. If you feel overwhelmed when around a big group of people, such as school, work or social gatherings, then chances are your are a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). An Indigo. A Crystal. A Rainbow. Or an Empath. This can cause a lot of distress if you do not know how to deal with such situations or how to protect yourself. People who are empathic have a tendency to take on other people's emotions and to feel the tension and emotions in the room. They can sense when things are off and can take on other people's burdens if they are lacking the tools to cope.  Now if you also happen to be an Empath, that means you are possibly also able to tap into other people's situations and thoughts more readily. Some traits that Empaths usually possess are similar to what we would term psychic. Empaths feel and just know things; they sense energy and emotions from far away. They are clairsentient, clairvoyant, sometimes clairaudient and their senses are activated by the unseen. To most people out there walking into a room full of other people is no big deal, but to a HSP or an Empath it can be extremely overwhelming and can create a panic attack. That's because once they walk through that door they are literally being bombarded by everyone's energy and emotions. If you are not trained to protect yourself, know how to rid yourself of dense energy that is stuck on you and have not been shown how to blend in without absorbing all that yuck, you are in major trouble.

HSPs are not only highly sensitive; they are naturally giving, they make good friends and are great listeners, they are spiritually inclined and they are always there for you. They tend to know just the thing to make you feel better even if they just met you. The problem is they can forget to take care of themselves and get overwhelmed by taking on too much which leads to frustration, negativity, rage, fear and depression. They are like sponges when it comes to emotions and the environment around them and need to learn ways of staying grounded and connected in order to not lose themselves in the vast chaos of emotion out there. When around other people they have trouble concentrating but can be focused, able to concentrate and feel good when they are by themselves. Indigos when unbalanced and overwhelmed can trigger depression, fatigue, panic attacks, food, sex and drug binges and several other physical and emotional burdens than make it hard to live a normal life.

For those of us who are parents of such children, our parenting skills trying to raise these kids can be greatly challenged. None of the classic parenting tools are quite enough or appropriate to help these kids stay happy and safe and to keep your sanity as a parent. These kids need our support in order to blossom into who they are. And we need to educate ourselves in order to help them do that. Funny enough they are actually here to teach us as well. To remind us to open our heart and be kind and loving.

Some of the most common traits of Indigo, Crystal or Rainbow children are as follows:
  • Have difficulty with discipline and authority
  • Are very creative
  • Communicate quietly
  • Can be easily distracted, lack concentration
  • Have strong empathy - are very empathic
  • Can get very angry and throw tantrums
  • "Nobody understands me"
  • Are highly intelligent - often classified as gifted and talented OR
  • Are classified as ADD, ADHD, Autistic
  • Lack social skills
  • Do not respond to time out, negative feedback
  • Respond well to logic
  • Refuse to follow direction
  • Have trouble staying on task
  • Get frustrated with the system - need to think outside the box
  • Lack of patience
  • Anxiety / Panic attacks
  • Have trouble focusing at school or at work
  • Electronics, computers, smart phones are second nature to them.
  • Can think and do many things at the same time
  • Question the status quo and have a feeling they can do things better
  • Have wonderful, strong intuition
  • Develop abstract thinking very young
  • May be psychic and very spiritual at a young age. Talk about memories of past/other lives.
Very often Indigo children are very intelligent and as a parent you know your child to be that; however when it comes to grades at school that intelligence is not reflected on their report card. The best way to engage Indigos is by getting them involved in hands on projects, going out in nature, learning a trait by shadowing a professional and finding a mentor for them. These kids will very often be rebellious in school, get to know the principal/dean on a first name basis,  and get in trouble often with the authorities. They are defiant and disgusted by any form of government. They may experience depression on and off, and feel that they do not belong. Suicidal behavior is often common in HSP as they have difficulty relating and feel the burden of the world on their shoulders. They sometimes become paranoid of their environment and are outraged at the idea of "Big Brother" watching them. They value their freedom and want to be out and earning and making their own life NOW! Indigos are usually very intuitive, have inner guidance (that they don't always listen to) and are prone to premonitions, psychic experiences and lucid dreaming. Their high frequency often shorts out electrical appliances/items; they might affect street light as they pass by, drain watch batteries and create malfunctions especially when they are upset. Indigos are very happy, healthy and powerful when balanced and have the tools to cope with their immediate environment. They are very sweet, caring and loving.

If you think that any of these descriptions feel familiar or you are a parent of such a child, or are an Indigo, I would urge you to come forth and share your experiences with me. We can work together to help you feel more comfortable in this world, explore your unique talents, let your light shine. There are ways to stay connected to who you are and blossom at the same time. Ways to stay safe, learn to protect yourself, keep destructive energy and people at bay and find your way in life as well.

Here is a tool to start taking charge of your life and your emotions: Anytime you feel overwhelmed or overtaken by an emotion ask yourself "Is this mine?"  Most of the time we assume that what we are feeling is coming from within, when in fact the overburdening emotion comes from our boss, our parent, a student next to us or in the class, a teacher. The guy in the car next to us that just uttered a swear word and screeched on ahead of us.  To a HSP it is very important to start discriminating between the sea of emotions that we sometimes drown in. When you stop for a moment and ask the question "Is this mine?" you bring your attention to that emotion. You get clarity. If the emotion is yours then confront it: what is causing it, is it valid, what can you do to resolve it? If the emotion is not yours then simply say "Return to sender" and bless it away. This might seem trivial but to a HSP this is vital. Recognizing what is yours and what is not can get you on your path to freedom. Freedom from overwhelm and anxiety. Practice is the key to making this technique successful. Catch yourself here and there, as often as you can and ask yourself the question, "Is this Mine?".

If you are a teen that needs to find ways to cope at school, ways to comfortable spend time with friends and family members and just know you are destined to do great things, I can help you with that. If you are a parent, having walked this path myself, I can guide you to successfully direct your children to a calm and meaningful family life and to help them thrive.
I offer coaching sessions to talk and provide you with tools to cope, Healing sessions to relieve stress and craziness from your life, as well as combo sessions for a little bit of both.

I wish you peach and calm in your life,
Blessed be.
