What You Should Know About Essential Oils Unfortunately not all essential oils are created equal. In fact many, if not all the oils on the market are what is called "perfume quality" or "4th & 5th quality oils. These are over-processed, chemical laden, highly adulterated & de-natured products that, in reality, are little more than cheap perfume made from various odorous plants. This includes oils found in health food stores. Many people think that when they buy an oil that is labeled as "100% pure" they are getting good oils. This is far from true. Pure unadulterated essential oil is very hard to come by & can be very expensive. One reason for this is because it can take as many as 500 to 2,000 pounds or more of raw plant material to produce just a pound of pure essential oil. To maintain all of the therapeutic qualities, it must be extracted by steam distillation using extremely low pressure & low heat so as not to defile the quality of the oil. There are 4 grades of essential oils: PURE This means the oil was not diluted with a lesser quality essential oil. For example: lavender oil is often cut with lavendin, which has very little therapeutic quality. "Pure" does not mean it has no chemicals added to it. It could be 75% vegetable oil & 25% essential oil & still be labeled "100% Pure." NATURAL This means the oil was not adulterated with vegetable oils, propylene glycol, SD Alcohol 40 or other chemicals. COMPLETE This means the oil was distilled at low heat & low pressure so that all the therapeutic properties are there. They have not been rectified or purified (which means stripped or redistilled.) Essential oils are often redistilled to make a small amount of oil go farther. They can make more profit that way. The problem is, when you redistill the oil you lose the therapeutic properties. It's like using a tea bag over & over again. An example: France is the number one producer of lavender oil. In 1997 they produced 25 tons of lavender and 67 tons were shipped to the U.S. Melissa oil is another example. It is very hard to produce. Out of 52 pounds of pure melissa oil, 1000 pounds were exported. What is wrong with this picture? There are anywhere from 200 - 800 chemical constituents that take up a single essential oil. When the oil is not distilled properly, you will be left with as few as 10. Some of the most powerful healing constituents are at the end of the process. GENUINE or GRADE A These are the cream of the crop. Great care is taken at every step of the process. Seeds- not from hybrids, soil- organic soil that never has chemicals put on it. Chemicals are never used on the plants in the field. Distillation by steam at low pressure & low temperature in upright containers & no chemicals are ever used in the process. Must have clarity of definition (one plant could have 200 species.) The time in the distiller is also important- cypress oil needs to be distilled for 24 hours. Many companies will distill at higher temperature for a shorter time. This will destroy the quality of the oil. The distiller must be no more than 50 miles away from the sight where the plants were harvested, must have Gas Chromatograph readings with an embossed seal that does not come from their own lab. Then & only then can they have the words "Grade A" on the label. Young Living's oils are GRADE A oils. They are one of the few companies in the world that grows plants from seed, distills & bottles their essential oils. Young Living is the largest grower of essential oil plants in the world. Healing Essential Oil Remedies Nature has given us many healing gifts from the plant kingdom. Healing essential oil remedies are one of the most enjoyable ways to experience its benefits for enhancing wellness. The benefits and pleasures of essential oil healing can be enjoyed from purchased products or from the plants themselves. Smell a rose and feel at peace. Rub lavender flowers in your hands, breathe in, and let out a stress-busting sigh of relief. Crush a rosemary leaf, inhale deeply and feel your head clear. Essential oil remedies are said to affect healing at different levels. For example, on a physical level, lavender is useful for acne, pain, and sunburn. On an emotional or mental level, lavender helps lift depression, relieve stress and calm anxiety.They are used as vibrational remedies in energetic healing. For year round essential oil healing, consider purchasing therapeutic grade essential oils. They are more expensive than lower quality oils, but are pure and more effective. They last a long time because you use so little. Common therapeutic essential oils of good quality are usually available through local health food stores and on-line. Look for high quality oils from companies you trust such as Mountain Rose Herbs. Fragrance oils are not essential oils, they are totally synthetic and have no health benefits. Essential oil remedies are very easy to use. If mixing your own blends, you do need to follow some basic guidelines to achieve the desired actions and to use them safely. Consult an aromatherapy book or good on-line source for instructions and recipes. If you prefer, prepared blends are readily available for a variety of needs. Follow the directions on the bottle. Remember, in aromatherapy, less is more. Don't be tempted to use essential oils internally. Unless you really know your oils and what you are doing, this is unsafe. Although therapeutic grade essential oils are sometimes administered internally by skilled aromatherapists, most essential oil remedies are for external use only. Always test the remedy on a small patch of skin first to make sure it doesn't cause a reaction. Essential Oil Remedies Here are a just few examples of how you can experience essential oil healing for yourself. These three oils are commonly used, readily available and moderately priced. Lavender oil is probably the most known and loved of the essential oils, especially by women. Here is one of my favorite ways to enjoy lavender oil. Put a drop in your hands and rub them together. Cover your nose and mouth with your hands. Close your eyes and inhale deeply for instant relaxation and stress-relief. Put a drop or two on a cotton ball and carry it with you. Sniff anytime for an instant stress-buster. Heaven! You can also dab a bit of lavender oil on a sunburn, an insect bite or a pimple. Use five-to-ten ten drops mixed in some oil or salts and add to bath water. Add a few drops to skin lotion. Peppermint oil A whiff of peppermint oil delivers an instant pick-me-up. It can be used alone or combined with lavender oil to counteract nervous stress and mental fatigue. Eat a strong peppermint candy to help with flatulence or intestinal upset. Use one drop added to water as a gargle for bad breath or sore throat. Some people find this oil irritating on their skin so be sure to test first. Peppermint oil is added to commercially made mint candies. These candies are offered after meals because peppermint helps with digestion. Tea tree oil is a very popular for essential oil healing. It has a reputation as one of the best therapeutic essential oils when you want to use a natural remedy for bacterial or fungal skin infections. You can apply a drop for toe nail fungus, ringworm, acne, warts, insect bites and infected wounds. Tea tree oil can be used straight or "neat". If it irritates your skin, dilute with a carrier oil or a little lotion. Inhale to counteract negative thinking, nervous exhaustion or shock. Can also be combined with lavender. Use as a steam inhalation for respiratory infections or add a few drops to the humidifier. Tea tree oil is useful for disinfecting around the house. Add several drops to your natural cleaning spray or laundry. Beyond Essential Oil Healing Some fascinating research has been done regarding aromatherapy and its uses beyond essential oil healing. Researchers have found that there is a strong link between scents and memory. "Forgotten" memories buried in the subconscious can bubble to the surface in the presence of an associated aroma. Students who sniff certain scents while studying find it easier to recall information when sniffing the same scent during an exam. When you have specific goals in place, everyday smells can activate these goals. People who smell lemon, a common cleaning fluid scent, are more likely to tidy up than those who don't. Realtors suggest that people use cinnamon or bake a pie when showing a home. It makes the house feel like home. Lemon oil is diffused in Japanese stores because people buy more when they smell lemon. Perhaps this is because it is an uplifting scent. A few drops of good quality lemon or orange oil added to a marinade on fish or chicken are yummy smelling and tasting. This is one of the few exceptions to the external use only rule. How To Make Essential Oils Essential oils are used for aromatherapy purposes, scenting bath and body preparations, refreshing or making potpourri, and blending into perfumes or colognes. Many of the recipes include essential oils, and it’s fun to try making your own at home. There is just one note of caution: Although you will be making your essential oils from natural ingredients, please do not be tempted to take them internally. Essential oils are very strong and often are not safe to consume. Additionally, your plants may not have been prepared in sterile conditions. True essential oils are extracted from only one scent, but you can create your own mixtures of fragrances by extracting them from several flowers and herbs together. Such a blend may smell wonderful or not good at all—you may want to save this alternative until you're a little more experienced with what goes together well. Listed below are some flowers, herbs and spices that are suitable for making your own essential oils. Flowers: Carnation Lilac Geranium Lily of the Valley Hawthorn Orange Blossom Heliotrope Rose Honeysuckle Rose Geranium Hyacinth Sweet Pea Jasmine Violet Lavender White Ginger Citrus and Spices: Cinnamon barkLime peel Cloves Orange peel Grapefruit peel Tangerine peel Lemon peel Vanilla beans Herbs: Basil Lemongrass Borage Lovage Chamomile Mint Chervil Rosemary Comfrey Sage Ginger Savory Hyssop Thyme Lemon Balm Verbena The easiest way to make essential oils at home is to use a simple variation of the effleurage and maceration techniques. Fresh herbs and flowers make the strongest essential oils; however, if you do not grow your own or have access to fresh plants, you can use dried products instead. Planetary Oils The seven sacred planets (the five visible planets plus the Sun and Moon) relate to the days of the week and also planetary hours within days and seven sacred planets were associated with ancient Gods and Goddesses. The use then of these planets and their hours has an ancient history in Witchcraft and Paganism. These oils help invoke the powers and characteristics of the individual planetary power. You can use these oils to anoint candles, or wear them as personal scent to help convey the power of the deities represented by the Planets. They may also be combined with Zodiacal Oils when one is working an astrologically-based spell.

As you do this concentrate on the purpose you have in mind. Candles can be used with oils(anoint)only or oil and herbs. If called for, roll the oiled candle in the appropriate herbs, still thinking fo your goal.
