Totally useless article, just kidding actually I liked it BUT, BUT, BUT I was actually looking for a Chart and an organization that certifies the cures reported by the public from the use of them. You know homeopathy, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine etc has research on herbs and cures and in my own garden opinion, they may work on maybe 60 or 70 percent population as every human is filled with different chemicals depending upon multiple factors and that’s why nothing can be guaranteed that would work on every person. Nowadays the whole world is getting sicker and sicker because these people have no fresh air with different segments, no pure water with minerals, all Gmo and foods are killers, everyone has something to ride that means no exercise, plastics and all synthetically and industry made things they are surrounded wit polluted the world. I have decided to go to Florida get five acres of land and have my own French Garden and my small zoo and produce all my own food, fruit, and veggies and cures. All medicinal plants will be fenced,, Zoo will have rabbits to keep law mowed and produce fertilizer, Peacock to eat snakes and beauty, chickens for eggs, meat and insect control, goats for milk and proteins, cats to eat mice, dog for security guard,, camel or Girrafe as a ladder to pick up fruits from trees . There is too much rain so a pond to hold water to raise fish and animals to drink water, Sun to produce electric, make hut from coconuts for healthy water. I can go on and on but it is getting late and I will miss the flight as I am heading the airport. If I miss the flight I will join you and start looking for cures just like you and I am sure despite all these essential oil s. I will never have a good year of health. As the last 150 years suddenly the whole planet changed but we are still the same old stone age people and have old genes and DNA. Follow me and I will lead you out of bondage to promise land. I have the passion for health and studied a lot, tell me should I start a blog.. [email protected]
The most important terms to look for regarding the way the plants are grown and harvested are: Certified Organic, Wild Harvested, or unofficially organic (sometimes called “unsprayed”). A reputable essential oil company will freely disclose all information about where and how their source plants are grown, and they’ll be proud of their organic choices.
He suggested an “old wives tale” remedy of tea tree oil in my shampoo. He is not typically an alternative medicine sort of guy, so I was surprised that he even suggested it. By golly it works! I have been a teacher for over thirty years –28 of them head lice free. I shared this idea with several colleagues and parents, and they all report the same results.
The third and most shocking thing that I learned (this was most shocking because I really felt like I had been lied to when I found this) is that the words that these companies use such as “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade”, are TRADEMARKED PHRASES by their corresponding essential oil company. This means that the reason each of these companies claims that “no other company can say….”, it's because their company has trademarked the words…from the doTERRA website:”CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade is a registered trademark of dōTERRA Holdings, LLC representing internal standards of quality assessment and material control. The CPTG protocol is not administered by government or industry regulatory agencies and does not imply regulatory approval of dōTERRA products.”
Warning, it’s in science language. This made me a believer in pure grade EO. That being said. If you chose YL or DoTerra, or go to an non MLM, QUIT FIGHTING about who is best, blah, blah, blah. We are YL and building a business with it. Big deal. We like the people and the product. I also know that there are several other good options out there. Fighting over who’s best, makes EO users look like children. Grow up. Enjoy your brand of choice and quit running others down.
The old adage, “you get what you pay for” is generally quite true when it comes to essential oils. Producing and distributing high quality essential oils is a time consuming and expensive process. If you find an essential oil at a price significantly lower than most major brands, you’re not getting a good deal, you’re probably getting a fake product.
According to a scholarly journal article published in the American Journal of Nursing Science, research has shown that “aromatherapy causes various actions favorable for patients such as relaxation, reductions in anxiety, depression and fatigue, and improvements in quality of life via nervous, endocrine, immune, and circulatory systems, [and] therefore could be applied as a complementary therapy for people with anxiety symptoms. However, as with all complementary treatments, it should not overlap the doctor’s instructions, especially in severe cases.”(19)
Dr. Robert Pappas says, “There are a lot of companies out there selling essential oils and most of them have no ability (or in many cases no desire) to do the necessary quality control to verify what they are getting from their supplier before they pass it on to their customers.” The GC/MS test determines quality and can show evidence of adulteration, although it is not perfect. Good companies will employ other tests as well like, Organoleptic (sensory tests), or FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy).
The essential oils industry is not regulated by the FDA, making comparison shopping quite difficult. Some essential oil brands use certain terminologies, others use different names for the same thing. A huge question lately is whether or not you can safely ingest essential oils. Some brands advertise internal use of essential oils, and others advise against it. I recommend to spend some time and get to know an essential oils brand first before you get their products through your door and trust them with the well-being of yourself and your family.
Lavender essential oil has been granted Generally Recognized as Safe status by the Food and Drug Administration (21CFR182.20 2015), which means that it is safe when used for its intended purpose as a food additive.42 Many EOs are inappropriate for oral administration in their undiluted form because of irritant, inflammatory, or cytotoxic effects on skin and especially mucous membranes, warranting dilution or avoidance. LEO is seemingly well-tolerated in this regard and is often applied topically or administered orally in an undiluted form. Reports of in vivo contact dermatitis and in vitro cytotoxicity, however, exist, warranting caution.43,44 Long-term studies demonstrating safety are lacking.
My 15 yo daughter has suffered severely from eczema. She’s been on steroid pills, creams and every prescribed topical ointment on the market. I am desperate to approach this skin issue with a more natural/healthy method. The steroid pills she takes are not at all healthy on her system but I dont know what else to do. I would love your recipe for the psoriasis mixture as this may help with my daughter. Thanks so much!!
Low temperature and low pressure play an important part of collecting the highest quality essential oil. When plant matter is placed into a chamber and steam is injected, the plant’s essential oil is released into the air. The steam and essential oil are carried out of the chamber and cooled. The oil and water are then allowed to separate for collection.
