My journey with essential oils began ten years ago.
It was Winter and my respiratory tract was infected again; it was
clear that my immune system was weak. Drugs, and over-the-counter
products had no effect. A friend saw my condition and offered a
blend of oils, consisting of the oils of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon,
Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary. A pleasant surprise followed, in
several hours I felt better and my breathing functions returned to
normal. I have not used Drugs in the past 18 years! This essential oil blend was created from research
about thieves during the 15th century in England who rubbed oils
all over their bodies to protect themselves from the Black
Plague while they were robbing the dead and dying. The assumption was that these oils protected them from the plague.
This blend of oils, oddly enough, is now a brand that goes by the
name of the Thieves blend.
Let's jump to today and consider the health crisis we are facing
everyday in our fight against bacteria, virus' and other underworld figures from the microcasm.
The plague happened in the 15th century. Now consider these
events which happened as recently as March 1998, right out of USA Today! My thanks to Jim Lynn for allowing me to use the below material published in one of his newletters.

During March of 1998, in Texas, fear of a deadly outbreak of a fast-acting bacteria has families in near panic. 19 people, a third of them children, died in Austin and Houston since Christmas
from a bacteria called streptococcus. A special hot line was
set-up and is fielded 300 calls a day from concerned citizens. The concern was over two severe forms of strep, a "flesh-eating bacteria" and the other which causes toxic shock
syndrome. In Illinois, the same thing happened. 10 people died in Decatur from the same deadly form of bacterial outbreak. 2
deaths were also reported in Chicago in February. Other outbreaks were reported in California, Washington and Massachusetts.
Health officials simply do not know how to stop streptococcus,
or why it kills some people while causing only a mild illness
in others. James Musser, Director of the Baylor College of
Medicine's Institute for the Study of Human Bacterial
Pathogenesis, said, "I understand the public frustration. I've
been studying this organism for a decade, and I'm frustrated."
Dr. Musser's frustration is shared by millions. Why is it that
so-called "modern" medicine is so helpless against such
simple, yet deadly life-forms? The simple answer is that
modern medicine looks to unproven patented medicine for
health solutions, rather than to proven natural remedies.
Modern medicine has chosen to follow the practice of treating
disease with man-made antibiotics and chemical drugs. If
these man-made inventions worked, fine...but they do not
work. Time, agonizing side-effects and thousands of premature
deaths, each year, painfully bare this out.
Man-made chemical drugs and antibiotics are, at best, band-
aid approaches to solving the health crisis in America. Yet,
inspite of repeated failures, the medical community continues
to use these failing modalities to fight disease outbreaks,
such as in the case of streptococcus now facing us. To wit: In
Texas a 3 year old boy, who has the flesh-eating form of strep,
is being given massive doses of antibiotics. Why? This
modality is the only one his doctors know, or are trained in
to fight infectious organisms.
There is an answer to staphylococcus, streptococcus,
meningococcus, pneumococcus, anthrax bacillus, thyphoid
bacillus, diphtheria bacillus, and a host of other bacterial
infections, but it isn't to be found in your doctors medicine
Look to Nature:
Mother nature's medicine chest is a marvel to behold. For
within this chest are the very provisions needed to prevent,
protect and heal human beings from bacterial infections.
No longer speculation, but proven by standard, clinical
studies, essential oils are mankind's answer to bacterial
infectious outbreaks from striking your loved ones.
In studies conducted at Weber State University, the essential
oils of cinnamon, geranium, lemongrass, melalueca, mt.savory, oregano and rosewood all proved 100% effective against streptococcus and staphylococcus.
In studies completed in Europe, the essential oil of thyme
proved 100% effective against anthrax, thyphoid, diphtheria,
and Koch's bacillus...as well as meningococcus. The essence
of lemon oil proved 100% effective against pneumococcus,
staphylococcus and diptheric bacillus. It is the
staphylococcus bacteria that infects and kills 000's of people
who contract infections while staying in hospitals.
All of the above named organisms kill thousands of people
yearly. So why hasn't our American health community turned
to this proven and readily available aromatherapy solution?
Perhaps this is a question you should ask your doctor.
How Bacteria Spread:
Bacterial infections are spread from airborne bacteria and by
touching surfaces infected with these organisms. The very air
we breathe may be contaminated from someone else's
sneeze or breath. Touching a telephone or ATM key pad may
spread these bacteria. Anything someone else has touched
can be contaminated with bacteria.
We come into contact with these organisms daily and bring
them home with us. For the most part we are never aware of
this because our body's immune system is always on the job,
daily killing and over-powering invaders. But what happens
when someone's immune system has been compromised?
Unless the immune system can overpower the invasion,
invaders continue to multiply until they have created a
stronghold called an infection. Once established, the infection
can worsen until the body itself is overpowered by the infection
and can no longer support life.
Essential Oil is Nature's Health Insurance Program:
There is no better way to prevent and protect your family from
bacterial invasion then through aromatherapy, the use of
essential oils. While food supplements can strengthen the
body's natural healing system, they cannot prevent and protect
the the body from bacterial invasion the way that essential
oils do. This is one reason why essential oils have been used
since the beginning of time...They are nature's health
insurance program against pathogenic health disasters.
Application is made in one of two ways, diffusion and direct
application. When essential oil is diffused into the atmosphere of a home or office, the air becomes purified, purged of harmful bacteria, fungus and mold. The effectiveness of this procedure is 100% and is like one of those used in studies by Weber State University. Essential oils kill/destroy infectious bacteria within seconds of contact. In addition, aromatic molecules are breathed into the body, where they trigger numerous immune-boosting, healing and relaxation responses. This combination one-two punch is the best health insurance one can have against infectious disease.
Diffusers come in various styles and work in various ways, but the most effective ones use a glass nebulizer which is attached to a small aquarium style air pump. Depending on style, the nebulizer may be attached to a bottle containing essential oil, or have an opening to add them by the drop.
Diffused by vibration and pushed by the force of air within
the nebulizer, a fine mist of oil is released into the air
where it remains suspended for up to several hours.
There is no set procedure or time schedule for using a
diffuser, but many families diffuse three times a day for
10 to 30 minutes each period. The benefits are immense
when one considers the health hazards we expose ourselves
Families with school children can decrease chances of
bacterial contamination by applying the oils directly on their
children before leaving for school. This is an ancient
practice, known long ago as a blessing. The oils penetrate the
skin and go to work within the body as effectively as
Use caution: Pure oils are very concentrated, and a few drops
can produce significant effects; so please begin slowly to
properly determine the body's response. Pure oils should be
diluted with carrier oil for those who are first time users;
who have fair or sensitive skin; or are being applied to
sensitive areas of the body; or are trying a new oil for the
first time; or who are infants or children. Download users guide here.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! Your health is nothing to leave to
chance. We live in times of strange diseases with a medical
community left wondering how to stop them. Use the
knowledge you learn to prevent and protect your family from
health disaster. Continue to visit your physician when needed,
but understand his/her limitation working in a system heavily
weighted against natural healing.
