What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being; to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit
Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed via the skin, and whilst breathing they enter the lungs. These therapeutic particles next enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body where they can deliver their beneficial healing powers and are said to promote whole-body healing
Aromatherapy is the inhalation and topical application of essential oils (or the pure essence from plants). As a form of alternative medicine, it is said to enhance physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
The Science of Inhalation
When a person inhales an essential oil that scent is carried by olfactory nerve cells in the nose to the olfactory system which then sends the aroma to the brain, namely the limbic system, the house of emotions and emotional behaviour such as intimacy, passion and sex.
The Science of Topical Application
Essential oils have high antioxidant properties as measured by the Oxygen Radical
Absorbance Capacity (ORAC), a test developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Tufts University to measure the antioxidant speed and power of free radical inhibition (which means the speed they clear up the cells).
Why Aromatherapy Boosts Mood! FEEL THE VIBE . . .
In addition to their antioxidant super powers essential oils bring when applied to the skin, the oils also invoke good feelings of wellness and vitality through a process called “entrainment.” According to researchers in Washington using Tainio Technology the vibrational frequencies of essential oils are the highest of any natural substance known to man. Through the principle of entrainment, the oil’s higher frequency will raise the vibratory quality of that individual. We will look at this through the data recorded by a Frequency monitor device called the BT3.
The Healing Process and the Subtle Energy Nature of Essential Oils
Here are some more Science Bits, get your professor head on!
The human body vibrating within its normal vibratory range between 62 and 68 MHz is considered in a state of health. But energy disturbances in the energy bodies (think aura) will actually precede the appearance of disease and illness in the physical body.
The normally harmonious coherent frequencies of the body easily go out of “tune” when a person experiences physical or emotional stress. A blockage of the flow of life energy – characterized by inflammation, irritation and illness – can result. When the human frequency range drops below the norm of 62 megahertz, this is when abnormalities and illness can begin to develop.
Human Electrical Frequencies and Fields
Tainio with his machine showed that a person’s health could be determined by its frequency levels.
Intriguing as Tainio’s research and the results of the BT3 machine is, its foundation may have been laid in the early years of the 20th century by Dr. Royal R. Rife, M.D. (1888-1971). Dr. Rife conducted research with a machine he developed called a “frequency generator” that applies currents of specific frequencies to the body. He concluded that every disease has a specific frequency.
