Aromatic plants and the oils from them have been around for thousands of years. Dating back 18,000 years evidence of plants and oils were discovered in drawings on the caves in Lascaux, France. They are mentioned in Vedic literature and in China’s historical Yellow Emperor’s Book of Medicine and 300 liters of sacred plant oils were discovered in 1925, sealed in King Tut’s tomb for 3,000 years in apothecary jars. This record find gave new meaning to the term, “shelf life.”
If these Essential Oils have been around for 18,000 year, why don’t we know more about them? We may think we’re the smartest people on the planet, but we would do well to go back in time and learn secrets from the ancients. Before modern medicine the go-to healing agents were herbs, plants, and Essential Oils. They are powerful healing agents and chemical compounds derived from the flowers, bark, stems, leaves, seeds, wood, roots and peels. They were easily accessible to all people and fairly easy to steam distill and extract.
They assist the body be being absorbed through the nose and the skin and going to work on the issue at hand automatically. Some are astringent, anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, expectorant, calmative, sedative, stimulating and much more. Once in the body, they head right to the source and repair what is ailing. They know exactly what to do and need no complex instruction. Essential Oils require dilution for safe use and caution while using. Never use an Essential Oil straight from the bottle, or “neat” as the term goes. Review the cautions and precautions before your dive in.
Using Essential Oils, you can:
• Create a massage oil blend for your aches, pains and muscle tightness.
• Add to shampoos for dandruff, greasy hair, dullness.
• Create your own face creams for your particular type of skin: mature, dry, oily, problem skin.
• Ward off colds and flu strains.
• Turn your bath in a therapeutic pool for stress release.
• Create peace and tranquility with aromas in your home.
• Develop your own cleaning products that are green and safe to use.
• Use them in place of some common medicines for headache, indigestion, tension and pain.
The Healing Art of Essential Oils will educate you, inspire you and give you great recipes for using Essential Oils to enhance your health and improve your life experiences. It also presents you with the cautions, toxins and dangers of using Essential Oils incorrectly. The book can be your bible for aromatherapy and a guide to natural pharmaceuticals at your fingertips.

Have you ever run out of Coping Coupons? There are days when I feel like I’m being pummeled by a tennis ball pitching machine gone berserk and everything is hitting me all at once. My options are to: tear my hair out, scream into a paper cup, pound my fists on a table, run away and join the circus or stop and remember to breathe.
Believe me, I’ve done them all at one time or another, but now that I have found Essential Oils, I always choose breathing. Not the ordinary kind of breathing mind you, but breathing the air put out by my trusty diffuser. I drop yummy, soothing aromas like ylang-ylang, bergamot, lemon and sandalwood Essential Oils into a half cup of water and turn the diffuser on. In the time it takes to prep the diffuser, I can feel the tensions and anxiety already leaving my body in anticipation of the luscious moment ahead. The next few minutes are total bliss. I change my nervous system from an Indie 500 race car into Margery Mellow.
I close my eyes, sit back in my chair and travel to my favorite place, which happens to be a nifty little beach on Kauai. While the fragrant aromas waft around me and the limbic center in my brain records the relaxation, in less than 5 minutes I’m ready to go back onto the world stage and wage peace or war depending what the tennis ball machine has in store for me.
When I learned how to use Essential Oils as a calming agent I shifted my life into a center of control instead of one of helter-skelter and being the target of whatever vector splatter may cross my path.
If the days gets rough, when the wolves are clawing at the door, my diffuser and I steal a few minutes away from the maddening crowd and relax. Just me and Margery.
Choose the aromas that make you happy and that transport you to into a world where you are carefree and uplifted, if only for a moment, and you will save your nervous system from wear and tear and your lovely face from premature wrinkles. It’s a technique that can work brilliantly for you. Give it a try.
