Science Behind Why Essential Oils Have Power to Heal
Essential oils have benefits that are up to 100 times more powerful than their dried herb counterparts because of their concentrated property. Therefore, it’s no surprise that they can do incredible things to heal your aches, skin and even psyche!
Most essential oils are high in antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, making them very suitable replacements for cleaners, wound treatment and salves. They also have a small molecular size, which means they are well-absorbed by the skin. Adding them to your lotions and salves induces healing, softening, and nourishing.
Essential oils create signals which cause the brain to release neurotransmitters like serotonin, which link our nervous and other body systems, to provide a feeling of relief. Our sense of smell is received by an organ in the brain called the amygdala that carries waves of perceptual recognition directly to the autonomic nervous system, which stores memories associated with the smell in the cells of our body.
A study was conducted by Vestn Otorinolaringol where a mixture of essential oils by inhalation was used with a group of 3-4-year-old children to prevent acute respiratory diseases and alleviate the symptoms of rhinitis. The essential oil blend was found effective with no side effects noted.

Energetic Qualities of Essential Oils
Science tell us that everything is energy, there is a subtle bio-energy that flows through all of life. The use of essential oils encourages your body to regenerate damaged cells, build a higher immune defense to viruses as well as sustain energy vitality.
Given the technology we have today, we are now able to measure the effect essential oils have on the body using frequency. We know that the human body’s vibratory range is between 62 and 68 MHz. The human body will start to mutate when the frequency drops below 62MHz, this is where we start to see colds, flus and diseases appear. If we combine this knowledge with the frequency an essential oil provides, we can start the work to properly re-tune the body to its original frequency.

New Study Looks at Ancestor's Gut Microbiome to Improve Health
A fascinating new study shows our gut microbiome has been experiencing a potentially catastrophic loss of diversity over the last millennium, possibly giving rise to various common chronic diseases. Is it too late to avoid irreversible damage to our health?
While most of us don’t ever think about it, we coexist with over 100 trillion microbes, the majority of which live in our gut and are essential to our health. Though the existence of the microbiome was first recognized in the 1990s, the full understanding of its importance and mechanisms is still in its infancy.
Dr. Alex Kostic is a microbiologist at Harvard Medical School, who has been studying the microbiome as a mediator of disease. “You know, this concept of the microbiome as a community of organisms living on humans and other mammals, and playing an integral role in our physiology really is a new concept, something that people have only been studying for the past 10-15 years or so,” Kostic said. “But what we’ve come to realize, as we study the ecology of all of the microorganisms living on humans, especially in the gut, is that it’s incredibly diverse, and pathogens are really the exception to the rule. Everything else has a lot of other roles that we’re still trying to tap into, but we can be fairly confident that they’re not driving disease in people.”
In their quest for a clear picture of the microbiome, researchers have recently turned to studying its history.
“What’s really gotten me interested in the history of the human microbiome, is this concept of being able to identify, if it exists, a ‘universal ancestral human microbiome,’ something that was common to all of us before the process of industrialization,” Kostic said.
