Essential Oils

The inhalation of essential oils has a profound effect on the brain’s hypothalamus and limbic system. Combining aromatherapy with essential oils massage benefits the mind and the body.

Recently Judy Griffin. Ph.D, aroma therapist, herbalist, lecturer and author was invited to Baylor University Medical Center and Baylor Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas to participate in pain management for the critically afflicted patients. Dr. Griffin’s introduction of flower aromatherapy was an overwhelming success, eliminating some patient’s pain, stress, nausea, anxiety, vomiting, and medication or drastically reducing the medication needed for pain. This treatment is now accepted and acknowledged as a natural effective pain treatment by the physicians at Baylor.

Until recently, most of aromatherapy professionals operated in Europe. Aromatherapy was introduced by René M. Gattefossé PhD, a French chemist, in 1928. During World War II, Dr. Gattefossé shared his studies with Dr. Jean Vanet, a Parisian physician, that was working in China. Dr. Valnet began to use essential oils when his supply of antibiotics ran out. Since that time a multitude of French doctors have clinically validated the antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic and antibacterial powers of essential oils. The government of France recognizes aromatherapy and aroma therapist as sound medical practice and practitioners that is taught in their universities.

Four decades later, medical and scientific research of essential oils extracted from plants, flowers, seeds, stems and leaves has proven that aromas from the essential oils derived from this plant material can alleviate pain, relieve fatigue, vomiting, anxiety, stress, nausea, minimize medication and tension, and induce healing in the mind and body.

Aromatherapy should never be confused with products such as aerosol sprays, candles and laundry soap that claim “therapeutic” properties just because they have the scents of a plant that smell good! Aromatherapy only works with pure, plant distilled plant material that is not mixed with any man made chemical that mimics the constituent properties in the true essential oils. Cold atomized airborne essential oils particles are the absolute best! Essential oils from a candle can actually produce carcinogens. It is imperative that you use essential oils that are not blended, synthetically made or have a fragrance that has been “added”. Aromatherapy users recognize a foreign standard for acceptable essential oils, known as, AFNOR and ISO, (Association French Normalization Organization and International Standards Organization). If the essential oils that you use do not have a certification from one of these organizations (the only standards setting organizations in the world), there is a good chance that your essential oil is synthetic, adulterated perfume oil unfit for healing… Rigid testing identifies the chemistry of true essential oils that can be beneficial in your aromatherapy.
