Essential Oils A to Z


learn how to use

Essential Oils are Our Heavenly Father’s Medicine Cabinet

 

Plants are beautifully and naturally fragrant. From them, and due to the increase of knowledge and technology, we are able to extract natural aromatic compounds that are found in  seeds, bark, stems, roots and flowers.   The oil is typically obtained by distillation or steam pressing.  It is important to use only the highest possible quality of essential oils when you use them for therapeutic purposes.

The Bible says, “the leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations” (Rev. 22:2)

“Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will  bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.” (Ezekiel 47:12)

God planned way back in the Garden of Eden for our good health!

how do you use essential oils

 

We use essential oils to support and protect the systems and functions of our body. Essential oils have  antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibiotic properties, just for starters. 

All Essential Oils can be used Aromatically and Topically. Many, but not all, can be used Internally. The oils we do NOT use internally include: Cedarwood, Cypress, Eucalyptus, White Fir and Wintergreen. If you happen to accidentally swallow them, don’t panic – you’ll be ok.
