Essential Oils: The Missing Link in Modern Medicine
"PLANTS not only play a VITAL role in the ECOLOGICAL BALANCE
of our PLANET, but they have also been intimately linked to the PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, and SPIRITUAL WELLBEING
of people since the beginning of time.
As the most powerful part of the plant, ESSENTIAL OILS and plant EXTRACTS have been woven into history since time immemorial. Essential oils have been used MEDICINALLY to kill BACTERIA, FUNGI, and VIRUSES. They provide exquisite fragrances to BALANCE MOOD, LIFT SPIRITS, dispel negative emotions, and create a ROMANTIC ATMOSPHERE.They can STIMULATE the regeneration of tissue or stimulate NERVES.They can even ACT to oxygenate and carry nutrients into the CELLS.
ESSENTIAL OILS may assume an increasingly IMPORTANT role in combating NEW MUTATIONS of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. More and more RESEARCHES are undertaking serious CLINICAL STUDIES on the use of essential oils to COMBAT these types of DISEASES.
The research conducted at Weber State University as other documented research indicates that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presents of many essential oils, especially those high in phenols, carvacrol, thymol, and terpenes. This, perhaps, offers a modern explanation of why the Old Testament prophet Moses used AROMATIC SUBSTANCES to PROTECT the Israelites from the PLAQUES that decimated the ancient Egyptians. It may help to understand why a notorious group of thieves, reputed to be spice traders and perfumers, was protected from the Black Plague as they robbed the bodies of the dead during the 15th century.
Throughout world history, fragrant oils and spices have played a prominent role in everyday life. One of the Dead Sea Scrolls on display in Israel at the Shrine of the Book Museum contains this intriguing phrase: “AND HE WILL KNOW HIS CHILDREN
BY THEIR SCENT”".
