Essential oils have been used for physical, mental and spiritual health for at least 4000 years. Essential oils are the basis in Raindrop Technique and are incorporated into the healing sessions. Some of the benefits of essential oils are: Reduce inflammation and pain, relieve muscle spasms, prevent or shorten length of cold/flu because of antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, enhances meditation, improves concentration and decrease stress.
Essential oils are used extensively in Europe in the home and health care setting. What is an essential oil? The essential oil of a plant is its “life blood” because the oil protects it from disease, provides nutrients and helps to repel insects. The oil can be found in the plant’s flower, stem, leaves, bark or fruit. . Essential oils are very complex containing hundreds or thousands of different chemical compounds; this is what gives each plant its unique healing attributes and characteristics. Therapeutic grade essential oils are quickly absorbed by the body when applied topically. The oils work on every system in the body and on a cellular level to assist in the elimination of toxins. The fragrance of the oils works on the limbic system in the brain where emotions are stored. Oils can help release emotional trauma, relax and clear the mind. Essential oils must be therapeutic or medicinal grade in order to maintain its healing properties. This means the plants were grown organically or in the wild, without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. They must be harvested at the correct time of year and distilled properly without chemical solvents or additives. The majority of oils found in the flavor and fragrance industries do not fulfill these therapeutic standards because the oils have been created synthetically or manipulated in some fashion. Only 2% of oils produced are therapeutic grade.
