oils were man’s first medicine and are making an astounding comeback.
Records dating back to 4500 B.C. describe the use of balsamic substances with
aromatic properties for religious rituals and medical applications. Ancient
medical scrolls describe a high success rate in treating 81 different
diseases with aromatic and medicinal plants.
Egyptians may have been the first to discover the potential of fragrance and
were masters in using essential oils and other aromatics. Imhotep (2780-2720
BC) was one of the founders of “pharaonic” medicine and is often
given credit for ushering in the use of oils, herbs, and aromatic plants for
the time of Christ, the ancient Egyptians collected essential oils and placed
them in alabaster vessels. These vessels were specially carved and shaped for
holding scented oils. In 1922 when King Tut’s tomb was opened, about 50
alabaster jars--- enough to hold 350 liters of oils were discovered.
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”. - Dr. Gary Young
“aromatherapy” was coined in 1928 by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, a
French chemist, and involves using a plant’s essential oil (the blood of
the plant). They are the subtle, volatile liquids or resins from plants, shrubs,
flowers, leaves, seeds, bark or roots.
In both the
Old and New Testaments of the Bible there are over 200 references to aromatics,
incense, and ointments. Aromatics such as frankincense, myrrh, galbanum,
cinnamon, cassia, rosemary, hyssop and spikenard were used for anointing and
healing the sick as well as protection against disease.
grade essential oils boost the body’s own defense system which helps
fight infectious illnesses. It is through these properties that aromatic herbs
have been esteemed so highly throughout the ages and so widely used during the
onsets of malaria, typhoid, and the epidemic plagues during the 16th century.
People who use pure essential oils have a higher level of resistance to
illnesses, colds, flu, and diseases.
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 are 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 not only
kill pathogenic bacteria, but tend to leave beneficial bacteria intact. Finally,
bacteria typically do not acquire a resistance to essential oils, as they so
often do to antibiotic drugs.” -Green and Keville, “Aromatherapy: A
Complete Guide to the Healing Art”
reintroduction of essential oils into modern medicine first began during the late
19th and early 20th centuries. Recently researchers at an American university
sprayed therapeutic grade essential oils within enclosed areas in controlled
tests to measure their effectiveness against airborne, life-threatening
pathogens. They discovered that diffusing these oils in a micro-fine vapor in a
room destroys these infectious pathogens. The studies proved conclusively that
essential oils are even more effective and reliable than popular antibiotics. A
virus or bacteria will mutate to defend itself against vaccines and
antibiotics, but no pathogen has ever been known to mutate when confronted with
One of the
most interesting studies conducted was one that tested oregano oil on
staphylococcus bacteria which is responsible for a variety of severe
infections, and one which is becoming increasingly resistant to many
antibiotics. The oregano oil was found to inhibit the growth of staphylococcus
in the test tubes as much as antibiotics did. The ability of oils from various
spices to kill infectious organisms has been recognized since the beginning of
recorded history. Spice oils have also been known to create a hostile
environment for parasites, bacteria, yeasts, and molds.
researchers and practitioners including some of the world’s most
prominent doctors actually consider essential oils to be medicine. Dr. Jean
Valnet, MD, the well-known French medical researcher and essential oil expert
states that various essential oils can be used to treat many conditions ranging
from high blood pressure to fatigue.
The rediscovery of the efficacy of essential oils is evident by
the many people who are now buying oils instead of over-the-counter medicines.
The public has also learned that prevention is key, and that they should not
wait until they come down with symptoms to start using oils. Protection can be
as simple as inhaling the vapor of tiny molecules from a small bottle that fits
easily into a pocket or in an aroma diffuser pendant easily worn around the
neck . A few drops rubbed on the hands or feet or if it is a pure oil, taken as
a supplement, can also be very helpful. For many, the renewed confidence in the
healing properties of essential oils has made oil application part of a daily
