Proven Natural Remedies for You and Your Family
A special report on the amazing therapeutic uses of essential
oils for developing a superior immune system, fighting deadly
microorganisms, and enhancing health.
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
From AIDS, to Epstein Barr, to Lyme's disease, to deadly food
bacteria such as E.coli and salmonella, we are more and more
vulnerable these days to serious threats to our health. The list
of microbes is growing and becoming more exotic, some deadly,
some just destroying the quality of life: the mutant, tissue-
destroying Streptococcus bacterium, the fatigue-causing
Cytomegalovirus, the deadly Hantavirus, the nearly invisible
parasites like Cryptosporidium and Giardia, deadly new drug-
resistant strains of tuberculosis, SARS, the frightening new
outbreaks of "airport Malaria" and mosquito-borne Dengue
hemorrhagic fever. The world is becoming a dangerous place to
Is the situation serious? Yes. Because of new antibiotic-
resistant bacteria, new viral infections being imported from all
over the world, and complications like pneumonia that weaken an
already sick person, what used to be a simple illness, like the
flu, is now potentially lethal even to otherwise healthy people.
It is becoming increasingly dangerous for anyone, of any age, to
Is there a way to deal with this? Yes. This e-course will
introduce you to the powerful therapeutic effects of pure
essential oils--possibly the most unique, highly effective,
immune-boosting, disease-fighting substances ever discovered in
nature. Please don't skim this lesson, even if you think the
topic seems a bit odd, or even if you feel you're already
familiar with essential oils. Never has there been a more
important time to understand the natural tools you can use to
take responsibility for your health and well-being.
Please also understand that this e-course is written only for the
purpose of education and sharing of information. It should not be

WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY?
"The use of essential oils dates back to ancient times, but there
has never been a time when essential oils are more needed than
today. The world is facing a medical disaster. Modern technology
has produced the jet aircraft, which can be the instrument of
transferring contagious disease around the world in hours.
Fortunately, there are answers that provide a way for us to
protect ourselves, our families and friends from these dangers.
Research has shown that with their immune-stimulating properties
essential oils can dramatically enhance and support the building
of the immune system, whether they are inhaled or rubbed on the
body topically. Even those who contract a cold or the flu can
recover 70% faster using essential oils." (D. Gary Young, ND,
" I expect that essential oils may some day prove a vital weapon
in the fight against strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Lavender, thyme and tea-tree oils have been used for centuries as
antiseptics; their chemical compounds appear to kill microbes on
contact." (Andrew Weil, M.D., 1996)
"[A]romatherapy [essential oils] is one of the most powerful yet
safe healing modalities we have today. It should be considered
much more in healing." (Terry Friedmann, M.D., 1993)
HOW HAVE ESSENTIAL OILS PROVEN THEMSELVES OVER TIME?
Texts and artifacts from ancient China, India, Egypt, and Europe
are chock full of references to significant therapeutic uses of
essential oils. The ancient Egyptians were masters of essential
oils for cosmetics and medicine. "The use of myrrh, cedarwood
oil, and other aromatics in the process of mummification gives
ample evidence of their antiseptic properties...[and] has also
led to the use of these gums as rejuvenating agents." (Tisserand,
In the Bible, the Lord gives Moses specific instructions on how
to make "an oil of holy anointment, an ointment compound after
the art of the apothecary" to protect his people, using "three
principal spices" which were myrrh, cinnamon, and calamus.
(Exodus 30, 22-25)
During the Black Plague of the 17th century, "Every aromatic
substance available seems to have been used...Aromatics were the
best antiseptics available at the time, and the people knew it."
Of course, it didn't help many thousands of people who died. But,
"those in closest contact with aromatics, especially the
perfumers, were virtually immune." (Tisserand, 1977)
"...in Toulouse a band of thieves is alleged to have stripped and
robbed the bodies of plague victims without coming to harm
themselves, thanks to an aromatic compound of vinegar, cloves,
sage, marjoram, rosemary, juniper and camphor--all known and used
in aromatherapy for their antibacterial properties." (Davis,
History further reveals that virtually the entire town of
Bucklersbury, England was spared from the plague, even while the
residents of other towns in close proximity were dying in droves.
How were the residents of Buklersbury spared? Historians believe
it was because it was the center of the European lavender trade.
While lavender is a plant whose essential oil is widely used in
making perfume, it has long been known to have powerful disease-
Dr. Jean Valnet, a French physician, began using essential oils
during World War II, using them to treat the wounds and burns of
soldiers on the battlefield. His subsequent research stimulated
widespread interest in the use of essential oils, and his book,
"The Clinical Practice of Aromatherapy", is now regarded as a
classic. Quotes of Dr. Valnet in this e-course all come from this
book. (Valnet, 1980)
Dr. Valnet writes: "In recent years both doctors and the public
have re-discovered the medical value of essential plant oils, but
the idea of using their properties to maintain or regain health
goes back to antiquity. The Romans had their knowledge of
essential oils from the Greeks, who in turn had received it from
the Egyptians. Hippocrates, for example, tackled the plague
epidemic in Athens by fumigating the whole city with aromatic
essences of plant oils. Later, in the 19th century, it is known
that perfumery workers always showed an almost complete immunity
during cholera outbreaks."
In light of today's modern plagues, and the utter failure of our
20th century "wonder drugs" to stop them, could it be that these
completely natural, historically tested substances are the answer
to our urgent need for enhanced immunity?
OK, SO WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS EXACTLY?
"Essential oils are the regenerating and oxygenating immune
defense properties of plants. Their oxygenating molecules
effectively transport nutrients and a myriad of other powerful
chemical constituents to the cells, bringing life to the plants,
destroying infections, staving off infestation, aiding in growth,
and stimulating healing. They are to plants what blood is to the
human body, and much, much more." (D. Gary Young, ND, 1995)
"Dr. Taylor of the University of Austin Texas has observed that
essential oils present more new compounds than the chemists of
the whole world could analyze in a thousand years. We now know
that they are mixtures of many powerful and therapeutic chemical
constituents. " (Valnet, 1980)
Essential oils are the subtle, volatile liquids or resins from
plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. They
are what give plants their characteristic odors, such as the
fragrance of a rose or the aroma of cedar or pine. There are now
30,000 known aromatic molecules that make up various essential
oils, and science readily admits it has only scratched the
surface in identifying and cataloguing them. A single essential
oil can contain up to 800 different chemical constituents. This
is one reason why the vast number of therapeutic actions of even
a single essential oil is not yet fully understood.
What is understood is this. Because of their unique chemical
structure, essential oils are able to penetrate the cell membrane
of human cells, just as they do the cells of plants, carrying
vital nutrients inside. Once inside the cell, "Essential oils
promote natural healing by stimulating and reinforcing the body's
own mechanisms. Essences of chamomile and thyme, for instance,
are credited with the ability to stimulate the production of
white blood cells which help in our fight against disease."
The three primary elements of all essential oils are hydrogen,
carbon and oxygen. However, essential oils contain a tremendous
number of other powerful chemical groups, including alcohols,
phenols, esters, ethers, oxides, coumarins, sesquiterpenes,
terpinols, ketones and aldehydes. These chemical constituents and
the sub-compounds they are made up of are what give the essential
oils many of their most amazing healing properties.
The secretory cells of plants that produce the volatile oils trap
the photo-electromagnetic energy of the sun and, with the help of
glucose, convert it into biochemical energy in the form of
aromatic molecules. Through this remarkable process, some of the
most powerful natural healing elements known to humanity are
Some of the chief families of chemical constituents found in
essential oils, along with their most widely acknowledged
* Aldehydes are highly reactive organic compounds that are anti-
infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and sedative. When
inhaled, they are calming. They are found in many of the lemon-
scented oils, including the oils of lemongrass, melissa and
citronella. One of the principal aldehyde compounds, citral, is
highly anti-infectious and anti-viral, particularly when applied
topically on herpes simplex.
* Phenols are deadly to bacteria. They contain high levels of
oxygenating molecules, and have powerful antioxidant properties.
As a result, they are one of the most beneficial immuno-
modulating compounds of all of the aromatic groups.
* Alcohols are strongly anti-bacterial and anti-viral. The
sesquiterpenol molecules in this group are anti-inflammatory and
stimulate the immune responses. Linalol, one of the most
beneficial constituents of the alcohols, is highly anti-bacterial
and works to boost the immune system, and carvacrol has been
shown to be antiseptic, superbly energizing and possibly anti-
* Terpenes are known to inhibit the accumulation of toxins in the
human body, and help the liver and kidneys discharge built up
toxins. They are antiseptic and stimulating, anti-inflammatory,
anti-viral, anti-bacterial, analgesic, anti-spasmodic and
* Ketones are known to help stimulate cell regeneration and
promote the formation of tissue. They also help dissolve and
discharge mucous, helping with asthma, colds, flu, and coughs.
* Esters result from the reaction of an alcohol with an acid.
They are known to produce a relaxing and soothing effect on the
human body. They also have very strong anti-spasmodic and anti-
Additional chemical constituents found in essential oils include:
* Azulene prevents the discharge of histamine from the tissues by
activating the pituitary-adrenal system, causing the release of
cortisone. Very useful for asthmatic conditions. Known to
dramatically speed up the process of healing. Stimulates liver
regeneration. Strongly anti-inflammatory.
* Bisbalol is the strongest of the sesquiterpene alcohols. It is
anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It is also
known to be a powerful ulcer preventative.
* Flavonoids show highly beneficial effects on the capillaries of
the human body, increasing blood flow and oxygenation of the
cells and tissues.
* Farnesol is highly anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.
* Farnesene is strongly anti-viral in action.
* Limonene is known to exhibit strong anti-viral properties and
more recent research suggests it may be anti-tumoral.
* Terpene alcohols are highly anti-bacterial and stimulating to
the immune system.
* Terpene hydrocarbons are highly anti-viral.
* Thujone relieves respiratory distress and stimulates the immune
system. May be highly beneficial in the reduction
and destruction of malignant tumors, particularly in breast
Quite an impressive list. But it barely touches the surface of
what modern medical science is now discovering about the powerful
therapeutic and immune boosting properties of essential oils.
Many scientists believe that over the course of the next decade,
it will be some of the specific constituents of various essential
oils that will help bring a halt to the burgeoning epidemic of
chronic degenerative disease now plaguing this country, including
cancer, arthritis, heart disease, chronic fatigue, multiple
sclerosis and more.
WHAT DOES MEDICAL SCIENCE TELL US ABOUT ESSENTIAL OILS?
"Essential oils include muscle relaxants digestive tonics,
circulatory stimulants and hormone precursors. Many repair
injured cells; others carry away metabolic waste. In addition, a
number of essential oils enhance immunity, working with the body
to heal itself. They're capable of stimulating the production of
phagocytes (white blood cells that attack invaders). And some are
antitoxic. Many essential oils have been proven effective against
fungi and yeast, parasites and viruses. Others fight infection
with amazing effectiveness, killing bacteria by disrupting their
life cycle. And unlike conventional antibiotic drugs, essential
oils are "probiotic": they kill pathogenic bacteria, but tend to
leave beneficial bacteria intact. Finally, bacteria typically do
not acquire resistance to essential oils, as they so often due to
antibiotic drugs. " (Keville and Green, 1995)
"What do the oils do? First of all they are transporters; they
transport products to the cells of our body. Secondly, they
contain ATP, which serves as the power source of the cells--the
fuel. Essential oils normalize the viscosity of the blood, and
facilitate the delivery of vital nutrients. Some oils are anti-
spasmodic and help relieve migraine headaches and mental fatigue.
Others reduce the pain and swelling of arthritis, release liver
toxins, clean the gall bladder, clear up acne and stimulate the
secretion of gastric juices, while even others work to improve
nerve impulses and synaptic connections, and heal burns, cuts and
infected wounds. Some oils reverse insomnia and anxiety, lower
cholesterol, relieve PMS symptoms, stimulate the immune functions
and destroy [microbes] among many other important functions. "
One of the principal characteristics of essential oils is that
they contain powerful oxygenating molecules. This is why the
essential oils, when applied to the skin or when inhaled, have
the ability to dramatically increase cellular oxygenation. This,
in turn, begins almost immediately to boost the human immune
Incredible as it may seem, recent research shows that essential
oils placed anywhere on the body will penetrate every single cell
of the body with in 2O minutes. (Young, 1995) They will even
penetrate a fingernail or toenail almost instantly to reach
fungus underneath. This stands in marked contrast to the average
of 13 to 23 hours for the therapeutic constituents of dried herbs
to reach the cells of the human body after ingestion.
What's more, essential oils are extremely concentrated,
particularly when they have been derived through distillation,
which is the best method of extraction for high quality oils.
When properly extracted, the oils contain virtually all of the
plant's healing nutrients, oxygenating molecules, amino acid
precursors, coenzyme A factors, trace minerals, enzymes, vitamins
and more. And because essential oils are so highly concentrated,
they can be many, many times more potent than the herbs or plants
from which they are derived.
Dr. Valnet asserts that the essential oil from thyme destroys the
anthrax bacillus, the typhoid bacillus, the glanders bacillus,
staphylococcus, the diptheria bacillus, and meningococcus. He
further states, "The essence of lemon is second to none in its
antiseptic and anti bacterial properties".
Andrew Weil, M.D., noted advocate of natural therapies writes:
"Certain aldehydes in lemon balm, for instance, have been shown
to reduce inflammation, while certain ketones in rosemary and
eucalyptus appear to reduce mucus production. Essential oils
appear to affect the emotions as well: In one recent study done
in a British nursing home, vaporized lavender oil was found to
work as well as pharmaceutical sedatives in helping residents
relax into sleep." (Weil, 1996)
Until recently, the bulk of research on the therapeutic
properties of essential oils has been carried out in Europe and
the Middle East, most notably France, Egypt and Israel, each
country having a rich, centuries-old history of the use of
various essential oils for therapeutic purposes. It has been
these scientific studies that finally jolted a small number of
far-seeing researchers within the American medical and scientific
community to sit up and take note of the extraordinary
antimicrobial power of essential oils, particularly in light of
today's plague of deadly antibiotic-resistant microorganisms.
In tests conducted in France by Professor Griffin, director of
the French Police Toxicology Laboratory, the antiseptic effect of
a blend of essential oils--including pine, thyme, peppermint,
lavender, rosemary, cloves and cinnamon--was studied in order to
test the ability of the oils to purify the air of harmful disease
causing bacteria. First, Professor Griffin set up a number of
Petri dishes approximately 15 centimeters from ground level in an
open room, allowing them to stand for 24 hours, germs from the
air being collected naturally as they settled into the open to
dishes. After 24 hours he analyzed the dishes, finding them to
contain 210 colonies of various microbes, including numerous
molds and staphylococci. He then sprayed the mixture of essential
oils in the form of an aerosol into the air in the room. After
only 15 minutes, only 14 colonies of microorganisms out of the
original 210 were left alive. After 30 minutes, only four
colonies of the regional 210 were left. Importantly, all the
potentially harmful disease causing molds and staphylococci had
been killed in the first 30 minutes. (Valnet, 1980)
In another French experiment, the number of pathogenic
microorganisms in various locations were measured. In a forest,
there were found to be five pathogenic microorganisms in the air
for every cubic meter. In an average apartment, there were found
to be twenty thousand microbes in the air per cubic meter. In
public stores, there were found to be nine million microbes in
the air per cubic meter. On the top of a worktable there were
found to be five million microbes per square meter. On a carpet,
9 million. And in the air of a large hospital there were found to
be on average ten thousand microbes per cubic meter. According to
Dr. Valnet, when an inquisitive doctor put some of the microbe
laden air from the hospital into a flask containing just a few
drops of essential oils, 40 percent of the microbes were
destroyed in only 20 minutes, 80 percent in an hour, and 100
percent in nine hours!
Dr. Valnet concluded, "Clearly, the administering of essential
oils by fine aerosol spray should be common practice in sick
rooms, operating rooms and clinics."
In an extensive article in "Advances," a publication of the
Fetzer Institute, Keith Block, M.D., a physician well known in
the cancer field, surveys the alternative therapies for cancer
that seem to be effective. He writes, "Consider the
chemopreventive activity of limonene, a monocyclic monoterpene
found in the essential oils of citrus fruits, spices, and herbs.
As recently reviewed by Crowell and Gould (1994), limonene
induces both phase I and phase II enzymes, resulting in hepatic
(liver-related) detoxification of carcinogens and increased
carcinogen excretion. Limonene may also block tumor promotion and
progression. (Haag et al. 1992a) [and] the complete regression of
mammary carcinomas by limonene and its metabolites appears to
involve tissue re-differentiation and induction of programmed
cell death (apoptosis), an integral part of normal biologic
processes (Haag, et al. 1992b)." (Block, 1997)
Dr. Valnet states that pathogenic microorganisms do not become
resistant to essential oils as they do to modern day synthetic
drugs. He says, " The body cannot become 'habituated' in the
pejorative sense of the word--i.e., no longer able to derive any
benefit--to the oils anymore than it can become habituated to
pure mountain air or personal hygiene. The results remain the
same; they do not lessen over any length of time."
And, unlike many of today's most popular antiseptic chemicals,
essential oils do not harm human tissue. As Dr. Valnet writes,
"Essential oils are especially valuable as antiseptics because
their aggression towards microbial germs is matched by their
total harmlessness to tissue--one of the chief defects of
chemical antiseptics is that they are likely to be as harmful to
the cells of the organism as to the cause of the disease. "
The successful uses of therapeutic uses of essential oils are so
varied and so great, the list of healing benefits literally
boggles the mind. For example:
Dr. Valnet asserts that unlike antibiotics, many of the essential
oils have strong anti-viral properties, and can provide
remarkable protection against viral infections ranging from
shingles to influenza.
Additionally, wounds of all types appear to heal quicker when
treated with essential oils. According to Dr. Valnet, "When
essential oils are used on both large and small wounds, healing
takes place quickly without dangerous toxicity or the formation
of scars." Skin disease also appears to benefit greatly from the
use of essential oils. States Dr. Valnet, "The various
dermatoses, acne and blotches are curable by both local and
general treatment with essential oils. Local application of the
oils also acts upon the subjacent organ such as the liver,
intestine or circulatory system, whose deficiency has given rise
to the cutaneous problem."
Furthermore, according to Dr. Valnet, many essential oils have
proven to be anti-neuralgic, anti-rheumatic, and beneficial to
the entire body and its organs. "Recent research has proved that
the essential oils pass directly through the layers of the skin
to be rapidly circulated in the blood, and then eliminated via
the lungs and kidneys in particular. The organs benefit from the
disinfectant, antispasmodic or stimulant properties of the oils
in the process. Using the essential oil of juniper in bath water,
for example, is recommended for people suffering from rheumatism
Dr. Valnet further states that various essential oils can be used
to treat conditions ranging from high blood pressure to fatigue.
For example, "The oils of lavender and marjoram lower arterial
pressure. On the other hand, the essences of hyssop, rosemary,
sage and thyme raise arterial pressure by liberating adrenaline
as a result of direct action on the area of the cortex of the
Andrew Weil reports on confirmation of the French medical
orientation to aromatherapy, or the therapeutic use of essential
oils: "Research worldwide is now validating the French acceptance
of aromatherapy as a medical modality." As examples he cites a
German double blind, controlled study finding peppermint oil
reducing headaches; two controlled British studies showing
peppermint oil more effective than placebo for irritable bowel
syndrome; and ongoing studies in the United Kingdom researching
the possible promise of limonene, in lemon oil, in the treatment
of advanced cancer. (Weil, 1996)
It's easy to see that the therapeutic properties of essential
oils are far too numerous to fully describe in the few pages of
this e-course. This is because the essential oils of plants, all
together, involve literally thousands of chemical compounds and
sub-compounds, each of which has their own therapeutic actions on
the human body.
A BRIEF WORD ABOUT THE FREQUENCIES OF ESSENTIAL OILS
The effectiveness of essential oils cannot be fully understood
without some discussion of frequency. Frequency is the measurable
rate of electrical energy flow that is constant between any two
points. Everything has frequency. Dr. Robert O. Becker, in his
book "The Body Electric", establishes that much about a person's
health can be told by the frequencies generated by the person's
body. (Becker, 1985)
In 1992 the pioneering scientist and researcher Bruce Tainio
built the first "bio-frequency" monitor in the world. His
research shows that when the frequency of the human body drops
substantially it is a clear indication that the immune system has
been compromised. His frequency measurements correlate well with
various states of disease and health, and show the effects of
contact with low frequency foods (junk, canned foods, coffee,
etc.) and the health-enhancing effects of the use of fresh fruits
and vegetables, herbs, and essential oils due to their measurably
higher frequencies. (Tainio, 1996) While Tainio's work remains
experimental, it echoes the principle suggested in the earlier
research by Royal Raymond Rife in the 1920's in which various
microbes were measured for their unique frequencies and killed
with the administration of higher frequencies.
The high electrical frequencies of essential oils appear to be
related to their ability to kill even the most virulent forms of
pathogenic microorganisms, and boost the immune system of the
human body. For example, Dr. Valnet states that the essential oil
of clove" has been found to have electronic constituents which
are opposed to cancer and to virus diseases."
HOW DO YOU USE ESSENTIAL OILS?
There are many ways to use essential oils, but the two most
popular ways are diffusion into the air and direct application
onto the skin.
Diffusion of essential oils into the air of an enclosed space
(such as a house or office) is popularly called aromatherapy.
That's because the highly aromatic, sweet-smelling molecules of
the essential oils are literally breathed into the human body, at
which point they trigger numerous immune-boosting, healing,
relaxing, or stimulating responses, depending upon the specific
oils being inhaled. Whether applied directly or inhaled, pure
essential oils have a therapeutic impact on the human body. D.
Gary Young, ND points out that the body's response time to
inhalation of essential oils can be as quick as one to three
seconds. Of course, even when the oils are applied directly to
the skin, their fragrance still gets to the nose!
How do the essential oils cause their effects? Specialized nerve
endings deep in the nasal passage are direct extensions of the
brain's olfactory bulb. When the tiny, vaporous oil molecules hit
them, they stimulate unique receptors that send impulses directly
to the olfactory center which "is very closely connected with the
limbic area of the brain, which is concerned with our most subtle
responses such as emotion, memory, sex-drive and intuition. The
olfactory area of the brain also connects with the hypothalamus,
a very important structure, which controls the entire hormonal
system by influencing the `master gland' itself--the pituitary."
(Wildwood, 1991) Thus, it's not hard to understand how an
essential oil, sending impulses so directly to the brain, can
affect the physical body as well as the emotions.
When oils are diffused in a home or office, they purify the air
itself by removing toxins, metallic particles and other harmful
microscopic debris. They also increase the atmospheric oxygen of
the air, and boost levels of beneficial ozone and negative ions
to inhibit dramatically the growth and reproduction of airborne
pathogens. As the aromatic molecules drift to the various
surfaces of each room (ceilings, floors, walls, tiling, etc.),
the unique properties of certain essential oils will rapidly kill
pathogenic bacteria, viruses, molds and fungi with which they
come in contact. And lastly, they can destroy odors from mold,
cigarettes, household pets and more.
Essential oils can be diffused into the air in a number of ways.
During summer months when you have a fan or air conditioner
running, one of the simplest ways to diffuse oils is to put a few
drops of your favorite oil onto a Kleenex, a cotton ball, or
handkerchief, and secure it in or next to the air vent or the fan
cage so that the air blows across it. The blowing air then
circulates the aromatic molecules of the essential oils
throughout your house, and you breathe them in and enjoy the
fragrances as you go about your normal daily household
Perhaps the most popular and effective method of diffusing oils
is using a device called a "diffuser," which sprays an ultra-fine
mist of the essential oil of your choice into the air. The
millions of misted particles sprayed from a diffuser are so fine
they can hang in the air of your house literally for hours,
spreading from room to room via the normal air circulation that
occurs as you walk through your house. A diffuser gives the
longest lasting effects in the air.
Another easy method of diffusing, if only because of its
simplicity, is to purchase the kind of spray bottle you would use
to mist houseplants. Fill the mister with water, add 15 or 20
drops of essential oil, shake well, and then walk through your
house briefly "misting" each room with the solution as you go.
(This refreshing mist will clear the air and clean it, but will
fall out of the air more quickly than the mist created by a
Regardless of which method of diffusion you choose, you'll find
immediate beneficial effects. For example, diffusing oils into a
room where someone is sick with a cold or flu can cut their
downtime by half or more. According to the experts and personal
testimonies, recovery can be accelerated by as much as 70%! And
regular diffusion of essential oils can practically eliminate
your normal change-of-season bouts with colds or flu.
According to Dr. Valnet, "Many essences (e.g., cinnamon, pine,
thyme, lemon) have marked effects on influenza, and patients
treated with these essences seem to get through the winter
The stories that people tell about their experiences using
essential oils are so wide ranging it can be surprising or even
hard to believe. But, when you put these stories side by side
with the research mentioned above, it's not surprising at all.
For example, for some people, simply smelling the essential oil
of lavender right out of the bottle can knock out a stubborn
sinus headache within 60 to 90 seconds. Other people swear by a
few drops of peppermint across the forehead to do the same.
Smelling eucalyptus for just several minutes often helps to open
clogged nasal passages and clear up sinus congestion like magic.
And a few drops of the essential oil of peppermint on the tummy
can completely eliminate acid indigestion and heartburn!
We have personally experienced that the essential oils of
peppermint and helichrysum will often completely alleviate
shoulder, knee and other joint discomforts when applied directly
to the painful area. That is because they both have chemical
constituents that are anti-inflammatory and analgesic, in
addition to their oxygenating and immune-boosting properties.
Other essential oils, such as rose, lavender and ylang ylang can
be rubbed into the area of the back, up and down the spine, just
before bedtime if you suffer from insomnia. Their amazing calming
and relaxing effects practically guarantee a sound night's sleep.
And again, you receive these benefits on top of all of the other
powerful health-enhancing properties of the oils!
As mentioned earlier in this e-course, direct application of
essential oils to any area of the human body results in almost
immediate penetration of the cells of the body. We recommend that
anyone beginning to explore this incredibly effective technique
always start with the essential oils diluted with pure vegetable
oil. Individual sensitivity to the oils may vary and needs to be
In addition to the application of the oil or oil blend directly
on or over the affected area, one of the most effective and
efficient means of application of the oils is to specific areas
on the bottom of the feet. This notion is present in the ancient
healing practices of India (Ayurvedic massage) and China
(acupuncture and acupressure). In as little as 21 minutes,
virtually every cell of the body will have been penetrated by the
oil, regardless of where the oil was applied.
Furthermore, the essential oils carry their oxygen molecules and
micronutrients right into the cells, nourishing and oxygenating
the body in an extraordinarily efficient manner unmatched by any
other substance on earth. Of course, anytime your cells get the
vital nutrients and oxygen they need, they become more robust,
healthy and able to deal with potential problems.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE PURCHASING ESSENTIAL OILS?
Unfortunately, not all essential oils are created equal. In fact,
many if not most of the essential oils on the market today are
what's called "perfume quality" oil. Usually found at health food
stores or through discount mail order suppliers, these are over-
processed, chemical-laden, highly adulterated and de-natured
products that, in reality, are little more than cheap perfume
made from various odorous plants. 98% of the world's essential
oils are made for perfume, food flavoring, or industrial
purposes. They contain little or none of the beneficial
therapeutic qualities of pure essential oils. Of course,
consumers are not commonly given this information by the
purveyors of these oils. In truth, the purveyors may have no idea
what they are selling. And unfortunately, it is only when you get
the oil home and use it that you find out that it's completely
devoid of therapeutic benefits.
Pure, unadulterated therapeutic essential oil is extremely
difficult to come by--and often very expensive. One reason for
this is that it can take as many as 500 to 2,000 pounds or more
of raw plant material to produce just a single pound of pure
essential oil. And that pound of pure essential oil can cost
anywhere from $1,000 to $15,000, depending upon the amount of raw
plant material needed to extract the oil, and the difficulty
involved in extracting it. This is why many bulk distributors
today sell inexpensive diluted and adulterated oils in large
quantities to unsuspecting buyers, who may be told they are
getting decent oil and who then re-bottle these denatured
products in smaller quantities for sale to the public at steep
For this reason, having documentation of the purity and quality
of an essential oil is all-important. Without it, you may have a
nice smell and little else.
It's also important to know that the purity and therapeutic
quality of essential oils are dramatically affected by several
other very important factors, including the location and climate
in which the plants are grown, the growing procedures used for
each particular plant, the harvesting procedures and the
extraction procedures used. The plants for pure therapeutic
quality essential oils must be grown organically whenever
possible, nourished with the best plant foods and water, in the
right location and at precisely the right climate. Many of them
have to be harvested with great care, by hand, in order not to
damage the plant or its delicate oils. Furthermore, the
harvesting must be done at precisely the right time of the year
and day, when the oils in the plant are at peak potency. And
rather than the high heat and chemical extraction processes used
by so many essential oil producers (which rob the oils of the
vast majority of their vitality), true therapeutic-quality
essential oils must be extracted by steam distillation (with very
few exceptions, where distillation is not possible, such as with
jasmine oil) using extremely low pressure and low heat so as not
to degrade the quality of the oil.
These factors are not optional! They are mandatory if a plant oil
is to be sold as a pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil.
Nevertheless, it appears that there is only one major producer of
essential oils in the United States whose products are all
guaranteed to meet these criteria.
MEET D.GARY YOUNG, N.D.
One of America's foremost experts on essential oils and their
therapeutic uses D. Gary Young, ND, is one of the few producers
in the world who is devoted to producing pure, unadulterated,
therapeutic-quality essential oils for public use.
D. Gary Young's credentials are impeccable. He studied essential
oils under the famous French researcher Dr. Jean-Claude Lapraz,
M.D., who pioneered the use of essential oils to treat and cure
chronic respiratory diseases. D. Gary Young, ND studied with him
at the Geneva Medical University in Switzerland. Later, D. Gary
Young, ND went to Paris to study under Paul Belaiche, a leading
French physician who brought much-needed understanding to the
western world regarding the previously unknown chemical
properties of essential oils.
D. Gary Young, ND then went on to conduct private research into
the essential oils at the prestigious Warwick University in
England, as well as the University of London. He then traveled to
Cairo, Egypt to study essential oils under Dr. R.S. Farag, head
of the biochemistry department at Cairo University. Dr. Farag
documented the oxygenating molecular activity of essential oils,
and was responsible for the scientific documentation of their
powerful anti-oxidant and anti-microbial activity. He has written
and published over 90 medical research papers on the essential
oils, and has received more awards than any other person in this
field of study. (Farag, 1989)
Later, D. Gary Young, ND founded his own clinic where he
experimented with pure essential oils and continued his research
into their amazing therapeutic properties. He also contributed to
the field of blood crystallization study, and helped advance the
study of dark field microscopy.
Today, he heads Young Living Essential Oils, the company he
founded for the purpose of bringing pure therapeutic-quality
essential oils to the American public. He is one of only a
handful of experts in the world today familiar with the multitude
of requirements for growing plants for, distilling and protecting
high quality essential oil. And he is the first to conduct
research and studies in North America on the use of essential
oils for the treatment of degenerative diseases.
His farm in Utah cultivates the largest single acreage of
lavender in the world and he is the first in North America to
grow organic plants for the distillation of essential oils.
Finally, Pure, Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils Are Available In
the United States
Fortunately, just as today's growing plague of antibiotic-
resistant bacteria, mutating viruses, infectious fungi and
disease-causing parasites has begun to sweep across the nation
like a tidal wave, D. Gary Young, ND has been developing his
company, Young Living Essential Oils, on a national basis in
order to help bring pure therapeutic-quality essential oils to
the forefront of public consciousness. It is a time of most
urgent need. His oils are not only the highest quality oils
available here in the United States, but they are also very
reasonably priced in spite of the fact that he must import many
of the oils from special farms in France, Egypt, Inner Mongolia
and China, where the best growing locations and growing climates
are located for many essential oil plants.
FIND OUT WHAT ESSENTIAL OILS CAN DO FOR YOU, PERSONALLY!
At present, Young Living Essential Oils offers 70 different 100%
pure, therapeutic-quality "single" essential oils, and 60
different blends of 100% pure, therapeutic quality essential
oils. Because of this wide range of choices, D. Gary Young, ND
has put together a special "introduction to essential oils" kit
for first-time essential oil users, consisting of three bottles
of some of the most important and powerful of the essential
healing oils (peppermint, lemon and lavender), and four bottles
containing specially formulated blends of essential healing oils,
for a total of seven bottles of essential oils. D. Gary Young, ND
calls this kit "The Essential 7." Each bottle contains a full 5
ml of highly concentrated essential oil--more than enough to help
you become thoroughly familiar with their amazing therapeutic
Each of the seven different oils and oil blends in the Essential
7 kit can be diffused, applied directly to the body, or even
added to the bath water. Here are descriptions of the oils you'll
find in this kit, and their most widely acknowledged therapeutic
1) Lavender - This beautiful oil has been called the "universal"
essential oil because of its extraordinary ability to help with
so many different problems. D. Gary Young, ND has said if there
were only one oil he could have, it would be lavender. It is
highly touted for its phenomenal ability to heal help severe
burns, cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. It is also widely
known for helping with headaches, gentle relief of insomnia,
alleviating PMS symptoms, and reducing stress. The fragrance is
calming and relaxing, both physically and emotionally. It may
kill many dangerous pathogenic microorganisms, and has supports
healthy circulation, blood pressure, and heart function.
2) Lemon -This refreshing oil is known to promote leukocyte
formation and increase lymphatic function, thereby dramatically
supporting the body's immune system. It works against many
pathogenic microorganisms, helps purify the air and water, and
promotes a sense of well-being when inhaled or applied. It is
also known to help relax overworked muscles and to be a potent
antidote for a variety of toxins. People love the uplifting
fragrance, especially children.
3) Peppermint - This cooling spice oil is known to improve
dramatically and rapidly mental acuity and alertness, vanquish
fatigue, soothe the respiratory system, relieve nausea, help to
reduce fever and vomiting, and quickly help to relieve the
discomfort of headaches, acid indigestion and heartburn. It also
may kill some intestinal parasites, as well as other pathogenic
microorganisms. Peppermint is also often used as an inhalant to
ease the symptoms of asthma and bronchitis, and is cooling on hot
This kit also contains blends of Young Living Essential Oils,
designed by D. Gary Young, ND for specific purposes.
4) Purification - This is a blend of 100% pure essential oils
including Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavendin, and Melaleuca. It was
specially developed by D. Gary Young, ND to purify the air of
airborne pathogens and neutralize mildew, cigarette smoke, and
other odors found in homes, offices and confined areas.
The oils which are combined to make this blend have been
described as having strong healing properties on their own:
* Citronella can be highly antiseptic and anti-spasmodic, and in
some instances may be anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory as
* Lemongrass is known to be strongly antiseptic and anti-
parasitic. It is also very calming, highly beneficial for the
digestive system, anti-inflammatory, and often used in natural
* Lavendin is similar to lavender and has many of the same
powerful therapeutic properties.
* Melaleuca is known to be highly anti-microbial, immune-
supporting, decongestant, neurotonic (i.e., it calms jangled
nerves) and sometimes even pain-relieving.
Purification is great for repelling bugs and relieving the
itching and swelling of bug bites. We believe this oil should be
in the first aid kit of every home!
5) Joy - An exquisite blend of pure essential oils, Joy includes
Ylang ylang, Bergamot, Citrus and Rose oils. It was specially
developed by D. Gary Young, ND to relax the body and mind, and
bring about an enhanced sense of well being and security.
The properties of the constituent oils have been reported as
* Ylang ylang is thought to be highly antiseptic and is used
overseas to fight intestinal problems. It also may relieve
tension and high blood pressure, reduces over accelerated
breathing, may ease a rapid heart beat), and it is thought to
work wonders on sexual debilities such as impotence in men and
frigidity in women.
* Bergamot has been used in the Middle East for hundreds of years
as an effective way of managing infectious diseases, cold sores,
insect bites, ulcers, sore throat, thrush, and depression. It is
known to have about 300 powerful chemical constituents, and has a
refreshing, uplifting quality.
* Mandarin is believed to be antiseptic and anti-spasmodic, as
well as appeasing, gentle, and promoting happiness.
* Rose oil (Rosa damascene) has the highest frequency of all the
essential oils. It creates a sense of balance, harmony, overall
good health, and elevates the mind. It promotes healthy skin and
may help ease the most distressing symptoms of many problems,
such as respiratory problems, sexual problems, skin problems and
even muscle sprains.
When feeling sad, there is nothing quite like a sniff of "Joy" to
uplift the spirit! This is another blend to be used regularly, if
6) Peace and Calming - This is a blend of pure essential oils
that includes Citrus, Ylang ylang, Tanactum and Patchouly. It was
specially developed by D. Gary Young, ND to help promote
relaxation and a sense of calm after a stressful day. When
diffused in the home it helps gently relax overactive, upset, or
hard to manage children. (We've already discussed the numerous
therapeutic and anti-microbial properties of Citrus and Ylang
* Tanactum (also known as Blue Tansy) is one of the most rare and
most therapeutic of the essential oils. It is thought to be
highly anti-microbial. It supports the immune system fight the
symptoms of colds, flu and infection. Additionally, it aids the
body's nervous system by modulating neurotransmitters, reducing
stress and bringing about a general feeling of wellbeing.
* Patchouly is among the top 10 oils used in aromatherapy. It is
known to be powerfully antiseptic. Additionally, it helps
regenerate tissue, and is anti-inflammatory. It is also used as a
general tonic that helps bring about a relaxed state when
diffused or applied directly.
If you have any trouble with stress, feeling overly worried, or
getting a good night’s sleep, we believe this is one of the most
beneficial essential oils blends you could possibly use. Children
typically love it. Also, because of the Citrus and Patchouly it
contains, it has the ability to rid your home of dangerous
airborne pathogens when diffused.
7) Pan Away - Some people call this a miracle oil. It is a blend
of pure essential oils including Helichrysum, Wintergreen, Clove,
and Peppermint. It was specially developed by D. Gary Young, ND
to help the reduction of inflammation, promote healthy
circulation and healing, and alleviate mild to severe discomfort
in overworked muscles, bones, and joints due to exercise. It has
proven to be highly effective in easing the symptoms of sports
injuries, sprains, and muscle spasms. (We have already noted the
many beneficial therapeutic properties of Peppermint above.)
* Helichrysum has been referred to by Gary Young as a "magic
bullet" oil. It is an all-around beneficial essential oil that is
widely known to help regenerate tissue and reduce tissue pain. It
has also been shown to stimulate liver cell function, improve
hearing loss, and reduce scarring and discoloration of the skin.
* Wintergreen contains methyl salicylate, which has a completely
natural cortisone-like action that is highly beneficial for
muscle, bone and joint discomfort especially due to over
exercising. It is extremely helpful in decreasing the distressing
symptoms of arthritis, tendinitis and rheumatism.
* Clove is widely known for its powerful pain-relieving and
germicidal properties. It is also one of the three essential oils
in which no known bacteria, virus or fungus can live. It is anti-
infectious, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-
parasitic and antiseptic.
This essential oil blend is an absolute 'must have' if you engage
in any kind of work or sports activities that leave you with sore
muscles or achy joints.
Please remember that virtually all essential oils are multi-
beneficial and therapeutic, so long as they are pure,
unadulterated first-quality essential oils. Even though many of
the essential oils described above are historically known for
treating very specific symptoms, such as pain, insomnia, high
blood pressure or infection, virtually all of them work to
oxygenate the cells of the human body, and are packed with
oxygen, natural immune system stimulators, and a wide spectrum of
cellular enhancers which are carried directly into the cells and
tissues of the body to oxygenate and balance them. In short, one
of the real beauties of high quality essential oils is that
almost any of them will help support the human immune system, and
benefit your overall health and wellbeing, regardless of the
specific symptoms for which you may be using that oil.
As with any substance you use for therapeutic purposes, the best
advice is to proceed with sensitivity and intelligence. The good
news is that if used appropriately, essential oils are completely
safe as well as effective. So, you can just try them and see how
they affect you. Along the way, you may even experience their
subtle effects that touch upon the spiritual dimensions of your
experience, as well as the physical, mental, and emotional.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS
While some people feel that first person "testimonials" are
unscientific and represent a secondary kind of information, often
referred to as "merely anecdotal," we feel that there is
undeniable value in hearing the experience of other people with
natural products that are as benign as Young Living oils. This is
not to say that such stories represent scientific evidence. It's
just to say that the experience of individuals does have value,
and we humans typically share those valued experiences by telling
"When I received my Essential 7 kit, I started inhaling the
peppermint oil immediately for my swollen nasal passages and a
sinus problem. Within minutes I had relief. After two days I was
completely clear in the nasal passages. Now, for the first time
in years I have gone through a spring without headaches, dripping
nose, breathing problems, or sinus infections. - F. B., AZ
"I received the Young Living Essential 7 kit on July 5, 1996 and
started using the oil blend called PanAway for my symptoms of
arthritis and the lavender oil for stubborn skin growths. With
only four applications some of the growths are gone, and others
are almost gone. What is incredible is that I have no more
discomfort of arthritis and have power in my knees so that I no
longer have to push and pull myself around holding onto walls,
furniture and using a walking cane." I.H., FL
"I think you should know that I don't like the `PanAway.' I don't
like it. I love it. I have been able to work on our property
without the constant pain I have had for several years when I do
any kind of physical activity. I have been able to work in the
garden for up to seven hours a day! ." G. K., TX
"My son had a bad boil. Tried antibiotics (cream and oral) during
a 2-week period or so. Couldn't get rid of it. Draining real bad.
I put 2 treatments of about 2-3 drops of lemon oil on it and it
was gone! It cleared up completely within a few days after the
second treatment and has never come back." R. T., MX
"Everybody was sick around us last winter, with a really bad flu
that had people in bed for weeks at a time. With me as a
therapist and my husband a doctor, we had a lot of exposure.
Then, the family came for the holidays, with bad colds and
coughs, too. This happens every year, and we always get something
from them that keeps us coughing for weeks. But we used an oil
blend starting before the cold season started and didn't get sick
once. I feel it was the oil that helped us stay well." S.P., CA
"I used Young Living Eucalyptus Oil for my allergies by inhaling
each day for three days. The results were remarkable. Not only
did it stop my allergy problem, my sense of smell has returned
after 32 years. I can walk in the yard now and actually smell the
different flowers and plants.... It's amazing." J.C., CA
"Since I received my Essential 7 kit I have not stopped using the
oils. I got burnt over my eye with a curling iron and applied the
lavender oil and the next day there was no evidence of a burn. I
used to suffer from depression but no more since I began using
the Young Living Essential Oil blend called Joy." B.E., FL
"My wife now uses the peppermint oil to stop painful stomach
cramps. It works in about 90 seconds flat on cramps that used to
leave her in debilitating pain for several days. Additionally, we
now rub a few drops of the oil blend called Peace & Calming on
our backs before bedtime, and sleep like babies. The more we use
the oils, the more amazing results we continue to get. So far,
everyone we've let use the oils have gone from skeptic to true
believer in a matter of minutes." S.B., CA
