Everyday Oils is a beautiful collection that covers most normal “everyday” types of situations – it is the perfect “emergency kit” to always have on hand.
The 10 oils, FRANKINCENSE, LAVENDER, LEMON, PEPPERMINT, PANAWAY, TEA TREE, PURIFICATION, THIEVES, STRESS AWAY, JOY can be layered one at a time and offer the body thousands of different molecules.
There is a huge difference between oils that “smell good” and therapeutic-grade essential oils. If the desired effect is not achieved when using essential oils, it is usually due to the fact that the oils are adulterated in some manner, whether by dilution, by improper distillation, or that the oil is a chemically created substitute. Distillation is a very complex art and must be done at the optimum temperature and pressure for each particular plant.
Otherwise, many of the chemical components that should be present will be missing. The oil may still smell the same, but it will not have the same therapeutic effect.
What is the best way to apply them?
The places on the body where the oils will absorb the most rapidly are:
Bottoms of the feet
Rims of the ears
Around the navel
Undoubtedly, the safest place to apply oil is the bottoms of the feet!
Some additional information on the oils of this kit:
FRANKINCENSE has many amazing properties, and many have found it to be effective in preventing wrinkles. In addition, it is very high in sesquiterpenes, which allow it to cross the blood-brain barrier. When the tiny molecules are inhaled, they can oxygenate the cells of the brain directly as well as through the circulatory system. The very high frequency of frankincense makes it a beautiful oil to apply for meditation. In recent years a number of people have used frankincense effectively to reduce the pressure in the eyes and to improve vision.
LAVENDER is considered the “universal oil”. Its complex molecular structure has hundreds of chemical components, making it effective in bringing about balance and harmony to alleviate many different symptoms. It is the most effective substance known for treating burns. In addition, it can minimize bruising and stop bleeding from cuts and scrapes.
Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it.
LEMON is between 54% and 72% limonene which makes it a multi-purpose use oil. It can be used to purify the air and water (Use Lemon Vitality for this purpose). Great for assisting the body in maintaining a neutral pH level. It is cold-pressed from the rind rather than steam distilled as are all citrus oils. Therefore, it is best to use citrus oils within two years. Lemon essential oil is uplifting and energizing.
PEPPERMINT is an excellent choice in the relief of discomfort. It is particularly effective for headaches and for digestive upsets – or just to enhance digestion. Peppermint also has the ability to enhance the properties of other oils when it is layered on top, and it can often relieve blocked nasal passages.
NOTE: Peppermint is considered a “hot” oil, so care must be used when applying it.
PAN-AWAY is a blend of WINTERGREEN, HELICHRYSUM, CLOVE, and PEPPERMINT. This blend promotes rapid healing and helps ease discomforts. Wintergreen contains 99% methyl salicylate. Helichrysum assists the body in regenerating healthy tissue. Clove has the highest rating on the ORAC scale of any known substance – 10,078,700!!!
Containing wintergreen essential oil, which is often used for massage, PanAway is soothing to the skin while providing comforting warmth to muscles after exercise.
PURIFICATION is a blend of CITRONELLA, LEMONGRASS, ROSEMARY CINEOL, MEMAMEUCA ALTERNIFOLIA, LAVENDIN, and MYRTLE. It was originally created for eliminating odors and mold. However, its greatest effect may be that it neutralizes poisons from insect bites, spiders, snakes, scorpions, and even Portuguese Man-of War! It also repels most insects and purified the air.
Can be used directly on the skin to cleanse and soothe insect bites, cuts, and scrapes.
THIEVES is a blend of CLOVE, LEMON, CINNAMON BARK, EUCALYPTUS RADIATA, and ROSEMARYOFFICIANALIS CT CINEOL. It was named for a group of 15th Century robbers who rubbed a blend of these oils on themselves and then stole from the sick and dying – and did not get sick! Studies conducted at Weber State University in 1997 showed a 99.3% kill rate against the airborne particles after diffusing for 20 minutes!
NOTE: This blend contains two very “hot” oils, cinnamon and clove and must be used with care when applying topically. The bottoms of the feet is the safest place to apply
