The Amazing Healing Properties of Therapeutic Essential Oils
by Adora Deva
Our sense of smell is one of our oldest imprinting senses and is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic system—where our emotions, behavior, motivation, long-term memory, and smell are processed. When we breathe an essential oil fragrance, it stimulates nerves in the nose, which send impulses to the limbic system which then sends positive therapeutic memory-emotion responses to the aroma into rest of the brain and nervous system.
For anxiety, depression, fatigue, stress, and more, essential oils have long been appreciated for their uplifting, calming, and clarifying effects on emotional wellness. Additionally, by applying them topically to targeted areas of the body, their therapeutic constituents reestablish balance where stress, depression, or mental discomforts have disrupted healthy emotional functions. Many recipients report feeling the soothing of muscle tension or experience the cleansing effect of the oils as they stimulate toxin elimination from the body.
Essential oils have often been called humanity’s first medicine. They are a form of plant medicine using the aromatic compounds extracted from plants. The Ancient Egyptians used oils for treating diseases, skin and hair care, even embalming. They also used them in religious rituals and ceremonies such as cleansing bad thoughts from the mind—today this would be called releasing emotional trauma.
Therapeutic grade essential oils contain molecules that appear to be accepted by receptor sites on every cell, which causes quick assimilation, promoting muscle relaxation, tissue regeneration and inflammation reduction.
We all carry immune-system depleting viruses and bacteria. Some essential oils can be used for their anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic benefits.
One way I like to share these therapeutic essential oils is by giving a ‘Raindrop’ session. The Raindrop Technique, developed by D. Gary Young, N.D. and a Lakota medicine man almost two decades ago, uses a sequence of nine highly immune-enhancing essential oils. They are dropped like rain from a height of about 6 inches onto the spinal meridians and other nerve centers.
Light massage is then used along these meridians and nerve centers for physical and energetic response, as well as stimulation of the vital reflex points in the feet to promote systemic response, energetic flow and detoxification. The many bio-energetic healing components of these essential oils are directly absorbed into the skin, nerves, connective tissue and blood stream bringing about balance, harmony and increased energy flow to the entire body.
Wonderfully soothing, nurturing and relaxing, the Raindrop Technique can work its benefits in the body and nervous system for days, weeks or even months. Come experience a wonderful Raindrop Technique massage today!
