Young Living Essential Oils
What you are about to read will astound
the lay person, and wrinkle the eye-brow of physicians trained
in orthodox medicine.
You are about to discover the world of 100% Pure Grade A Essential Oils,
God's gift to mankind. In their pure unadulterated state, essential
oils contain SUBSTANCES so powerful, they may be rated as the MOST POWERFUL
IMMUNE-STIMULATING PROPERTIES of any natural
substance known to man.
In Fact, DOCUMENTED scientific clinical studies show Essential Oils to
be; Immune-stimulating, Anti-viral, Anti-infectious, Anti-bacterial,
Anti-microbial, Anti-septic, Anti-tumoral, Anti-fungal and Anti-parasitic.
And best of all, they are freely available, without prescription.
Physicians and researchers should take note: This is not some
folklore fairy tale, but hard copy research backed by over 6,000
years of use.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are the subtle, volatile liquids that are distilled
from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, bushes and seeds. An ancient
process, oil distillation is a delicate and precise art that has
been almost forgotten. Science is just now re-discovering the
incredible healing power of essential oils, which are the life
blood of the plant kingdom, and beginning to acknowledge their
THE ESSENTIAL BEGINNING... (History
According to the translation of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics
and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians were using extracted
oils from plants for healing thousands of years before Christ.
This makes essential oils the earliest known medicine, pre-dating
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration by some 6,000 years or more.
Highly revered, the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt routinely exchanged
Blue Lotus Oil with the kings of India for slaves, gold and other
precious goods. And so it is, essential oils were at one time
in history considered more valuable than gold. When King Tut's
tomb was opened in 1922, 350 liters of oil were discovered in
alabaster jars. Plant waxes had solidified in a thickened residue
around the inside of the container opening, leaving the liquefied
oil in excellent condition.
In 1817 the 870 feet long Ebers Papyrus was discovered. This
scroll is now referred to as a medicinal scroll. It dated back
to 1500 B.C. and mentioned over 800 different formulations of
herbal prescriptions and remedies. Other scrolls indicated that
the Egyptians had a very high success rate in treating 81 different
diseases. Many mixtures contained myrrh and honey. Myrrh is recognized
today for its ability to help with infections of the skin and
throat and to regenerate skin tissue. Myrrh was also used for
embalming because of its effectiveness in preventing bacterial
Anchored in Scripture
There are numerous references to these oils (or the plant they
are derived from) in the Bible. Some precious oils, such as frankincense,
myrrh, galbanum, rosemary, hyssop, cassia, cinnamon and spikenard
were used for anointing and healing of the sick. There were three
wise men (magi) who brought gold, frankincense and myrrh to the
Christ child. Clinical research now shows that frankincense and
myrrh are two of the most powerful immune-stimulating substances
available, containing very high amounts of immune-stimulating
properties. Perhaps the three wise men were wise in ways beyond
Recent excavation of the ancient city called Gilead, has unearthed
the remains of a fortress like building used for the manufacture
of balsam oil. This "balm of Gilead" noted in Jeremiah
8:22, had long been famous in antiquity for its nearly miraculous
properties to HEAL WOUNDS. In fact, the balsam oil of Gilead was
so famous that the conquering Roman emperor Titus (79-81 A.D.),
after conquering Gilead, displayed branches from Gilead's balsam
trees in his triumphal march through Rome.
So precious was this oil to the commerce of Gilead, the exact
manufacturing process was kept a closely guarded secret. So much
so, archaeologists uncovered an inscription carved into the floor
of a local synagogue that reads, "Whoever reveals the secret
of the village to the gentiles, the one whose eyes roam over the
entire earth and seas, what is concealed will uproot this person
and his seed from under the sun." (see Biblical Archaeology
Review, Sep/Oct 1996 issue). It should be noted when Joseph's
brothers tried to sell him to a caravan of Ishmaelites passing
by, their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh, purchased
in Gilead, on their way to Egypt (Gen. 37:25). And so it is, the
use of extracted plant oils was an established industry thousands
of years before Christ walked on the Earth.
The Plagues of Europe
Essential oils were not produced in Europe until the 12th century.
Although Medieval Europeans lost touch with personal cleanliness,
which helped bring on the great plagues of the 13th and 14th centuries,
essential oils are still known and talked about in relationship
to the thieves who robbed the bodies of the dead and were not
infected. These robbers, known as spice traders and perfumers,
bathed in such oils as pine, frankincense, balsam, clove, cinnamon
and rosemary. Imagine the knowledge and trust they must have had
in the oils, that they were willing to expose themselves to an
otherwise certain death.
Throughout early history, the ancients knew the value of essential
oils. What happened to the information about these oils? Perhaps
during the Dark Ages and the burning of the library in Alexandria
(a center for man's knowledge) and other places, much of this
knowledge was lost. It has only been through the cosmetic and
perfume industry that this valuable science has started to re-surface.
ESSENTIAL OILS RE-DISCOVERED
In 1920, a French cosmetic chemist named Rene-Maurice Gattefosse,
Ph.D., while working in his laboratory, had an accident that resulted
in third degree thermal burn of his hand and forearm. He plunged
his arm into a vat of lavender oil thinking that it was water.
To his surprise, the burning quickly decreased and then stopped
within a few moments. Over a period of time, with the continual
application of lavender oil, the burn healed completely without
a trace of a scar. As a chemist, Dr. Gattefosse analyzed the essential
oil of lavender and discovered that it contained many substances
referred to as chemical constituents. As a result of this, he
determined that essential oils contained tremendous healing properties.
He shared his experience with his colleague and friend, Dr.
Jean Valnet, a medical doctor in Paris, France. During World War
II, while serving as a medical physician in the French Army at
the China Wall treating war victims, Dr. Valnet ran out of antibiotics,
so he decided to try using essential oils. To his amazement, they
had a powerful effect in reducing and even stopping the infection,
and he was able to save many of the soldiers who otherwise might
have died even with antibiotics.
Dr. Valnet had two students who did their internship with
him who were responsible for expanding his work. Dr. Paul Belaiche
and Dr. Jean Claude Lapraz. They discovered that essential oils
contain antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic properties
as well as being powerful oxygenators with the ability to act
as carrying agents in the delivery of nutrients INTO the cells
of the body.
NOTE: One of the causes of disease
in both plants and the human body is the inability of nutrients
to penetrate the cell wall. Unless there is an adequate delivery
agent to assist the cell to receive needed nutrients, the cell
becomes deprived of nutrition, its wall thickens, thus preventing
delivery of nutrients. This causes cell deterioration, leading
to cell mutation, creating a host for bacteria and disease. If
your food supplement program has seemingly hit a "wall of
limitation," it may be for the above reason.
One of the many incredible aspects of the oils is their amazing
ability to penetrate and carry nutrients through the cell wall
to the cell nucleus. They literally "fly" through the
thickest cell walls. This is so due to the oxygenating molecules
found in the oils which transport the nutrients, then delivers
them through the cell for feeding the nucleus. The oils are nature's
most effective catalyst and delivery agent for feeding cells.
FREQUENCY OF ESSENTIAL OILS
The effectiveness of essential oils cannot be fully under- stood
without some understanding 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 the human
body has an electrical frequency and that much about a person's
health can be determined by it.
In 1992, Bruce Taino of Taino Technology, an independent division
of Eastern State University in Cheny, Washington, built the first
frequency monitor in the world. Taino has determined that the
average frequency of a healthy human body during the day time
is 62 to 68 Hz. When the frequency drops, the immune system is
compromised. If the frequency drops to 58 Hz, cold and flu symptoms
appear; at 55 Hz, diseases like Candida take hold; at 52 Hz, Epstein
Bar and at 42 Hz, Cancer. Taino's machine was certified as 100
percent accurate and is currently being used in the agricultural
According to Dr. Royal R. Rife, every disease has a frequency.
He has found that certain frequencies can prevent the development
of disease and that others would destroy diseases. Substances
of higher frequency will destroy diseases of lower frequency.
The study of frequencies raises an important question, concerning
the frequencies of substances we eat, breathe and absorb. Many
pollutants lower healthy frequency. Processed or canned food has
a frequency of zero. Fresh produce has up to 15 Hz; dry herbs
from 12 to 22 Hz; and fresh herbs from 20 to 27 Hz. Processed,
canned foods have no measurable frequency. It would seem we need
a source of higher frequencies to maintain our good health.
Essential oil frequencies start at 52 Hz and go as high as 320
Hz, which is the frequency of Rose Oil. Clinical research shows
that essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural
substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease,
bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., CANNOT
Research in the field of essential oils, has shown that if the
frequency of the right and left brain lobes varied more than 3
Hz, a headache would begin. If the frequency varied more than
10 Hz, a substantial or migraine-type headache would develop.
By combining certain oils and through simple inhalation, the frequency
of the head may be balanced and return to normal within a few
In another experiment the frequency of a young man, 26 years old,
while holding a cup of coffee, dropped in three seconds to 58
Hz. Without the use of oils, it took three days to go back up
to normal. Another young man, 24 years old, drank the coffee,
and in three seconds his frequency dropped to 52 Hz. When he inhaled
a blend of oils, his frequency returned to normal in 21 seconds.
There is still much research to be conducted, but the premise
is if we can keep the body frequency high enough and well oxygenated,
we will be free of disease.
USING ESSENTIAL OILS
Further research has shown that with their immune-stimulating
properties, essential oils may enhance and support the building
of the immune system, whether they be inhaled or applied on the
body topically. Even those who contract a cold or the flu may
recover 70 percent faster using essential oils.
Diffusing the Oils Into the Atmosphere
Perhaps one of the greatest attributes of essential oils is, they
have been known through research to purify the air we breathe.
When diffused in the home they release oxygenating molecules into
the atmosphere where they stay suspended for several hours to
destroy and prevent bacteria, fungus, mold, and freshen the air
with natural fragrances. In addition to removing dust from the
air, the diffused oils allow us to breathe in their wonderful
antiviral, antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
This is the most perfect way to improve our home environment,
they may help us relax, relieve tension and headaches, dispel
odors, or just create an atmosphere of peace and harmony. Diffusing
essential oils into your home will make an essential difference
for you and your family's health.
Topical Application of the Oils
There is a misconception that pure essential oils should first
be diluted before applying them topically on the skin. Pure oils,
with the exception of those containing the natural chemical constituent
known as "phenol," (such as with cinnamon, clove or
oregano) may be applied "neat" (undiluted) directly
on the skin. Oils containing phenol can cause an irritation or
CAUTION: Because many commercially
available essential oils have been adulterated with solvents and/or
man-made chemicals, you should not apply essential oils directly
to the skin...unless you know them to be safe. If in doubt, always
try a small amount first to test for a possible reaction.
When applied to the body by rubbing on the feet, essential oils
penetrate the skin and travel (via the bloodstream) throughout
the body and affect every cell, including the hair, within 20
minutes. They may have a lasting effect for as long as five months
from only one application. The oils do not build up and store
in the body because they are very subtle and volatile, having
a high evaporation rate. Because of their chemical structure,
they are metabolized like other nutrients in the cells.
In addition to the feet, the oils may be applied directly to affected
areas of the body, such as to joints, muscle and tendons needing
relief from aches and pain. The oil from Helichrysum, Birch, Clove
and Peppermint when combined have been known to take pain away
in a manner of moments.
Aromatherapy means to treat with aroma through inhalation. Essential
oils, because of their fragrance and volatility, have been reported
to help create greater spiritual, physical and emotional harmony
The olfactory, that part of our nose responsible for odor detection,
sends impulses created by various odors to the amygdala, which
is the memory center of our brain for fear and trauma. It was
only discovered in 1989 that the amygdala plays a major role in
the storing and releasing of emotional trauma, and only odor or
fragrance stimulation has a profound affect in triggering a response
with this gland. Fragrance is one of man's greatest enjoyments,
bringing back memories of past experiences and creating a feeling
of security, grounding, and well-being. Dr. Joseph Ledoux, of
New York Medical University, feels that this could be a major
break-through in releasing emotional trauma.
YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS
Oil distillation is a precise art that has almost been forgotten.
Living Essential Oils, founded by Dr. Gary Young, is helping to
bring this history back to life with research and oil formulations.
Gary has spent twelve years studying essential oils in Switzerland,
France, Israel, Egypt and Turkey to learn as much as he could
about the oils, and how to produce them. In the process, he has
established himself as one of the world's leading authorities
on the subject.
Returning to the United States he built a research farm in Idaho
where he built the largest and only stainless steel vertical steam
distiller in North America. Today he is distilling some of the
finest oils in the world, and lecturing all over America and abroad
about the therapeutic value of essential oils.
Producing the finest oils requires several hundred pounds of plants,
or more, to extract one pound of oil. For instance, it requires
from 175 to 250 pounds of lavender to produce one pound of lavender
oil, and 5,000 pounds of rose petals to produce one pound of rose
oil. Low pressure and low temperature are the keys to maintaining
the ultimate fragrance and therapeutic value. Incorrect processing
or contact with any chemical or impurity will destroy the effectiveness
of the oils. Young Living is committed to producing and offering
the finest quality and purest oils in the world. Further, the
ground on which the plants are grown is free of herbicide or pesticide.
Weeding is done by hand. In fact, should you visit the Young Living
farm, you will be expected to take your turn at "pulling
When Dr. Young had his oil production tested in France, he went
to the government laboratory of Phytosun'Arom. There Young Living
Oils tested to show some of the highest levels of chemical constituents
that had ever been recorded.
The Young Living Essential Oils Research Farm, located in Utah,
is the finest of it's kind in North America. Young Living grows
the plants, distills them for oils, manufactures the products,
packages and distributes them and educates the consumer in the
usage and benefits of essential oils.
To insure Young Living Essential Oils are free of solvents, Young
Living has each batch of oils tested by an independent third party
laboratory. The reports from these tests are freely available
upon request from Young Living.
Young Living Essential Oils offers a full line of Essential Oils
and other nutritional products. To simplify the question of which
oils to try, Young Living offers a
sampler kit of the seven oils most
frequently requested. (Lavender,
Lemon, Peppermint and four blends: Joy, PanAway, Peace & Calming,
The Essential Seven Kit was created so that anyone could immediately
use and appreciate the benefits of therapeutic-grade essential
oils. If you have never used Essential Oils, the Essential Seven
Kit makes an excellent beginning.
