The heart and soul of a plant is the essence of a plant, known as an essential oil. To make essential oils, boiling water or steam is pushed through 20 pounds of the plants’ glands, leafs, roots, barks, seeds, or flower. The oil is released and an essential oil is made. Aromatherapy, the direct inhalation of the oil, was used by Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. Inhalation has a direct physiological effect via the limbic system in the brain and blood circulation.
The book of Exodus mentions how the Lord gave the following recipe to Moses for a holy oil: Myrrh, cinnamon, calamu, cassia and olive oil. There are over 33 mentions of different species of fragrant plants with over 1,035 references to essential oils both in the Old and New Testament. Psalm 51:7 says “Purge me with hyssop and I will be clean.”
Dr. Gattefosses’ 1937 book about Aromatherapy reads “one rinse with lavender essence stopped the gasification of the tissue,” (referring to a burn)
He shared his knowledge with his colleagues and his friend, Jean Valnet, an MD in Paris. After completely exhausting his supply of antibiotics in China during WW2, Dr. Valneet began using oils on his battlefield injured patients, with a high success at saving their lives.
Most essential oils are anti microbial and cannot go rancid. Any given oil contains 80-300 or more different constituents. The molecules in one drop of essential oils are so small they can enter the body anywhere on the skin. One drop on the skin starts circulating thru the body in 30 seconds.
