Essential oils are natural remedies for the body, mind and spirit. They are the true a gift from Mother Nature and the blood of the plants, flowers, roots and herbs. The sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic lobe of the brain, the emotional control center. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger, and joy all emanate from this region. This is why the scent of a special fragrance can evoke memories and emotions before we are even consciously aware of it.
Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects.
Not only can essential oils be used to combat stress and emotional trauma, but they can also stimulate the production of hormones from the hypothalamus that can result in increased thyroid hormone (our energy hormone) and growth hormone (our youth and longevity hormone).
Sesquiterpenes in the essential oils of sandalwood and frankincense can increase levels of oxygen in the brain by up to 28%. Such an increase in brain oxygen may lead to a heightened level of activity in the hypothalamus and limbic systems of the brain, which can have dramatic effects not only on emotions, learning, and attitude, but also on many physical processes of the body, such as immune function, hormone balance, and energy levels.
Living Foods Institute has created a series of oil blends to help our students achieve the health they desire. The particular blend of oils has been chosen for specific reasons and to work together to raise the energy vibration of the body so healing can occur.
All of our oils of 100% organic and wild crafted. No synthetic oils are used under any conditions as synthetic oils are toxic to the body. The oils may be used in several ways.
- Apply the oils to the bottoms of the feet, on and between each toe and on the tops of the feet.
- Apply the oils to the inside and outside of the ear. Do not pour the oils in the ear.
- Apply the oils on the area of concern.
- Diffuse the oils in an electric diffuser. DO NOT USE A DIFFUSER WITH A CANDLE. The heat from the candle will destroy the oils and they will loose their potency.
