Be eco-responsible and green as essential oils don't contaminate the environment when they leach into water table as do commercial products…and best of all their fragrance lingers to beneficially influence mind, body, and spirit wellness.
Miami, FL (Vocus) September 24, 2009
The benefits of how using essential oils surpass any commercial product are explained in the new YouTube video and in Jami Lin's best-selling Essence of Feng Shui book. Watch Jami and author/aromatherapist, Diantha Harris, discuss how essential oils (typically found in heath food stores) are anti-microbial and non-toxic, how they influence positive attitudes, and how they smell delicious!
"Wipe the kitchen counter with lemon or orange essential oil instead of traditional cleaning solutions. Smell nature instead of toxic fumes and eat right off the counter." "Be eco-responsible and green as essential oils don't contaminate the environment when they leach into water table as do commercial products…and best of all their fragrance lingers to beneficially influence mind, body, and spirit wellness."
The use of essential oils is both an art and a science that dates back at least six thousand years. They contain the life force of plants, and almost instantly, get absorbed through the skin or from olfactory systems (starting with the nose).
Every essential oil has green and antibacterial properties as well as benefits to body and mind. Essential oils affect the body in the same way as food. Vegetables and fish are both healthy and are processed in the body the same way; yet, their nutritional and life-enhancing benefits are different.
Each essential oil has unique benefits based upon the plant it comes from and its chemical composition. As they get distributed into vital organs and tissues through the bloodstream, they affect specific body systems and organs.
Here are just a few physical tips using essential oils to assist with physical applications, excerpted from Essence of Feng Shui book. Put a few drops of eucalyptus in a tub of hot water and clear the sinuses. Put a drop of lavender on a mosquito bite and take out the itch. Lavender will help a cut heal faster and even help reduce wrinkles by tightening the skin. Make a compress with peppermint and reduce a headache. Massage cypress or juniper into the skin to reduce cellulite.
Essential oils have a powerful influence on emotions and states of mind. Olfactory nerves connect directly with the body's limbic system in the brain, which influences memory and emotion. This is why all fragrance has an instantaneous and profound effect.
For a few mental aromatherapy benefits, diffuse some peppermint or rosemary in the office and stimulate focus and concentration. These oils are great to reduce jet lag too. Calm the spirit and inspire restful sleep with lavender or chamomile.
Get started. Simply select an oil by following your nose. Put 9-18 drops in a one-ounce spray bottle…spritz and enjoy! Essential oil life-enhancing and multi-influential benefits are as endless as there are plants from which they come.
