Essential Oil Benefits

There are many essential oil benefits that I can think of... so many people I know have improved their health by using them.

Each person is different so naturally each person has a different body chemistry. Therefore the essential oil benefits you receive may or may not be the same for someone else. One person may have the same results by using a totally different oil. So there is a "learning curve" to using essential oils... but it's more a learn-your-own-body sort of thing.

One reason why essential oils are valuable is because they have several things in common with human blood. They are accepted by the body because of these commonalities. They include: compatibility with human proteins, ability to fight infection and regenerate tissue, similarity in chemical structure with human cells, similar hormone-like compounds, and many more.

Essential oils are so tiny they are able to penetrate human cells. So when a therapeutic-grade essential oil is applied to the skin it reaches every cell in the body within minutes. Just think of all the essential oil benefits! Results in minutes!!

Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils
Support the 11 Major Body Systems

Over the years our bodies are exposed to many factors that are negative. Our body systems become compromised from illnesses, exposure, and poor lifestyle choices.

These can include: overeating, drinking alcohol or other unhealthy liquids, eating the wrong types of foods or not enough good foods, smoking, not consuming enough water, taking prescription drugs, being around radiation, being exposed to chemicals... and the list goes on and on...

With all this self-abuse our bodies get worn out and tired. They may begin showing symptoms that there is a problem. That is when we really need essential oil benefits! Of course, prevention is always better... but us humans seem to always have to push it.

If you have something that has been bothering you for a while first figure out which body system is being affected. Then you can use oils that support that system to help you.

Remember: Only therapeutic-grade essential oils

can give therapeutic (REAL) results!

Okay... There are eleven major body systems which work harmoniously to keep us alive. They are:

  1. Integumentary System - skin, hair, nails, sense receptors, sweat glands, oil glands.
  2. Skeletal System - bones, cartilage, joints.
  3. Muscular System - muscles attached to bones.
  4. Nervous System - brain, spinal cord, nerves, brain stem, sensory organs.
  5. Endocrine System - pituitary gland, pineal gland, hypothalamus, thyroid gland, parathyroids, thymus, adrenals, pancreas, ovaries, testes.
  6. Cardiovascular/Circulatory System - blood, heart, arteries, veins, blood vessels, capillaries.

  8. Respiratory System - nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs.
  9. Urinary System - kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra.
  10. Reproductive System - (male) testes, vas deferens, urethra, prostate, penis, scrotum; (female) ovaries, uterus, uterine tubes, vagina, vulva, mammary glands.
  11. Digestive System - mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, intestines, rectum, anal canal, teeth, salivary glands, tongue, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, appendix.

Achieving Homeostasis

Essential oils are homeostatic... this means they help maintain a state of equilibrium within the body. This is due to their complexity. They are "whole" so they have multiple components which can have multiple effects on a person's body. Essential oil benefits are practically guaranteed.

Essential oils do not disturb the body's natural and normal balance. Pharmaceutical drugs, on the other hand, are synthetic chemicals designed with one purpose; this can - and often does - disrupt the body's homeostasis. But, add other natural methods, such as massage therapy, accupressure, or meditation, and the benefits are enhanced further.

Here are some essential oil benefits I have personally received:

  • Relaxation & Pain Reduction during Childbirth.
  • Beautiful Skin, I look 5 - 10 years younger than I am!!
  • Balanced Moods - no more highs and lows! I used NingXia Red.
  • We rarely get sick because we use Thieves.
  • More Energy, Clarity of Thought, Endurance, and so much more!

You can receive essential oil benefits too. Try some and find out!
