Ancient Viruses in our DNA

Our chromosomes contain at least 8 % of viruses from our ancient lineage. These virus lie dormant until reawakened. They have a potential to reinfect recipients.

ALS, a progressive muscle wasting disease is a known illness that can awaken a sleeping virus. When this happens, muscle wasting and subsequent neurodegeneration. Medical research is considering using HIV drugs to slow nerve degeneration. Once the virus infects a recipient, it is not easily stopped.

Viral Escape is an essential oil and Petite Fleur essence blend that can reduce the incidence of retrovirus as well as modern ones. In test tubes, Viral Escape has antiviral and antibacterial capabilities as effective as many  common antibiotics and modern drugs. Viral infections often lead to secondary bacterial infections and require antibiotics.

Viral Escape is best applied often and before infection occurs. Massaging a few drops on a few times a week can often reduce infection.Moderate continual use will not harm the natural immune response. It can enhance and strengthen immunity.

The Most Nutritious Way to Eat Garlic

Allicin, the nutritious part of garlic, is created by cooking garlic 10 minutes after cutting, mashing or mincing. Cooking or eating garlic raw right after cutting will destroy the ability to create allicin. Allicin is a compound created by two properties in garlic. Ten minutes after cutting garlic, this chemical reaction creates allicin, the healthy part of garlic.

Garlic has avoided genetic modification and maintains all or most of its original health properties. It is easy to grow in a pot or as a garden plant. Garlic naturally repels aphids and several garden pests. Buy fresh garlic and place the bottom side in the garden or potted soil as a planter. It will soon sprout and multiply into a medley of nutritious plants. Garlic grows naturally with other garden herbs and most plants.Water only as needed and do not fertilize with commercial products. Garlic really doesn't need any fertilizer.

Garlic is a universal plant with no certain origin. I have been to Guanacasta in Costa Rica and other areas where it is too hot to thrive. Most of the world can enjoy its flavor and medicinal effects year round.

Garlic is a natural anti fungal with  some antibiotic properties. It is useful to reduce hypertension and many ailments of modern living. Garlic is high in heating properties. If you suffer from insomnia, hot sweats, red rashes, gastric re-flux and arrhythmia, keep garlic to a minimum until your symptoms subside.

Safe Travel using Purely Organic Hand Sanitizer

Recently the local news reported information about the sanitation on airplanes. The news was shocking. Multi resistant staff and fecal material were found on the tray tables we drink and eat from. The lavatory had fecal material and a strain of staph causing pneumonia on the sink and other areas. Cold and flu germs were just about everywhere a passenger sits, eats and uses the bathroom. These are the reports that stand out in my mind. My thoughts go to what we can do to remind ourselves to not only wash our hands, but also to use a hand sanitizer on the tray and everywhere we put our hands and uncovered flesh. Aromahealthtexas offers Purely Organic Hand Sanitizer made from fresh, garden blooms grown onsite.

If you want healing, and protection, I suggest using and traveling with knowledge and  my therapeutic hand sanitizer. Purely Organic Hand Sanitizer will increase your immunity without taking away its integrity.

Three Varieties of Lavender

The three varieties of lavender are: Lavender Vera, the most popular; Lavender Spica; and Lavender stoechas. Each contains different chemical properties and have specific healing abilities. I will name a few.

Lavender Vera is most well known as an all purpose essential oil. The very fragrant scent is due to 50% esters and 41% monoterpene alcohols. Small amount of ketones support the urogenital organ functions. Esters and monoterpene alcohols are especially healing and beautifying for the skin. They also relax muscles and reduce tension, making lavender a great pain reliever and sleep enhancer.

Large amounts of ketones in Spike lavender fights viral and fungal infections. Spike lavender also relaxes the heart muscles to help anxious and hypertensive people. It also has ketones to increase tissue regeneration and heal wounds.

Lavender stoechas has a predominance of ketones that reduce mucus, earaches, whooping cough, burns and regenerates skin.

I successfully grow all three lavenders in North Central Texas. They require very good drainage and lots of sunlight.

On an emotional level, lavender opens the heart and clears the mind. They are prevalent in blends that enhance intimacy, social and emotional balance.

Keep lavender refrigerated or in a very dark, cool place in tightly sealed bottles. The high amounts of monoterpenes cause oxidation and turns the aroma stale and less fragrant.

Note: Monoterpene alcohols have a light, floral aroma. They are antiseptic, antiviral and increase immunoglobulins. They can reduce intestinal inflammation; are sedative and tonic. Monoterpenes in essential oils are mild and usually non offensive.  A patch test before application can assure safety.

Essential oils for Shingles Symptoms

Essential oils contain antiviral properties that can reduce the shingles viral load and subsequent symptoms. The high  amount of esters in some essential oils are especially useful for reducing intense skin and muscle burning,tingling red rash with fluid filled blisters that ooze and form a crust. Symptoms usually occur on one side of the body in a small area. Headache, fever, chills and flu symptoms can occur. Diagnosis must be made by a medical doctor. Shingles originate form chickenpox virus and can display symptoms many years later.

Essential oils may be diluted and applied directly to the affected area, or on a nearby area of skin:

Roman Chamomile, Anthemis nobilis, contains predominately ketones and esters that sedate pain, itching, swelling, eruptions and promote tissue repair. Blend 1 drop of Chamomile in 1 ounce of carrier oil. Red Raspberry is a good choice for shingles.

Geranium, Pelargonium graveolens, also reduces inflammation and promotes tissue repair. Large amounts of its esters are soothing and antiseptic. Use 1-5 drops in 1 ounce of carrier oil.

Lavendula sica and vera, both reduce burning and inflammatory symptoms and promote healthy tissue repair. Although Lavender vera contains more esters, I like to use Spike Lavender because the predominance of ketones promote  antiviral properties. Dilute 1-10 drops of essential oil in 1 ounce of carrier oil.

Palmarosa, Cymbopogon martini, is very cleansing, antiviral and antifungal. Dilute 1 to 5 drops in 1 ounce of carrier oil.

Apply essential oil blends directly on affected areas or nearby, 3 to 5 times daily. The essential oils mentioned can be combined in 1 ounce of carrier oil. Use 20 drops or less of essential oils in the blend. It is possible these essential oils can be worn to prevent an outbreak of shingles. Apply them to the neck and chest as a preventative twice a week. Viruses attack when immunity is down. Keep your stress levels balanced with Reduce Stress Therapeutic Essence Blend.

How to Trap a Virus

Viral molecules can stay in the body for a lifetime. Usually we build an immunity to most virus we catch or have an exposure.Other virus can hang around in your liver and especially along the spinal column , causing fatigue and a host of immune deficient symptoms. With viral infection, unwanted bacteria also move into the skin ,lungs and circulation traveling to deep organs and tissues. Taking antibiotics and cortisone derivatives may weaken immunity over time as they also kill the good bacterial growth in the intestines. Under normal immune processes, immunity is strengthened as the body uses its resources to capture and remove unwanted virus and bacterial tissue.

Essential oils and essences can be very effective in assisting the immune system. They adversely affect a wide variety of virus, bacteria and fungus.Used correctly, there is no side effect. The best methods of application include direct inhalation from the inhalent diffusers offered on the website and topical application along the spine and on the chest. Children, elderly and sensitive folks can apply a few drops onto the bottom of the feet. This skin is less likely to react. Essential oils move up because they are volatile, allowing the aromas to travel throughout the body. Often people ask if all three methods can be done simultaneously. The answer is yes. However, 3-5 drops is a normal treatment. The Petite Fleur Essences may be applied undiluted. Essential oils are best diluted into an appropriate carrier oil for application. The inhalent diffuser uses undiluted essences and essential oils that have been squirted into the diffuser with a dropper that is supplied. The inhalent diffusers are the size of a lipstick. You simply put the diffuser under your nose and breathe in deeply a few times. This can be repeated 3 or more times daily as needed for comfort and to protect against exposure.

Carrier oils are normally food grade quality and healing in themselves. The lipid molecules make essential oils readily absorbed into the skin, bringing their healing qualities into tissues. Carrier oils can also fight virus, bacteria, mold and fungus. Their lipid qualities help to trap a virus, while the essential oils prevent the virus or bacteria from  multiplying . Essential oils and essential oil products are best kept away from heat and bright light exposures. Once a bottle is open, oxygen can cause rancidity. It's best to use the product rather than keep it on a shelf indefinitely.Otherwise,  kept away from strong light and heat, blends can last up to 6 months unopened. Carrier oils are like a food. They can also become rancid after opening  for several weeks. For best results, make small amounts of  essential oil blends. I have 1 dram, about 4 ml, or 1 ounce, 30 ml. for dilution. Red Raspberry is a non nut carrier oil that soothes red and sensitive skin. It helps prevent sunburn and protect the skin. Marula is a nut oil that feels like silk when applied to the skin. I use it often, especially in blends to desensitize the skin from strong essential oils.It is also gentle to the liver, which has to detox essential oils before they travel to the kidneys. It takes about 3 hours before essential oils applied on the skin travel to the kidney. A little goes a long way. Safe treatment using essential oils should be 20 drops or less of all essential oils in a 1 ounce carrier oil. A dram of carrier oil can carry 5 or less essential oils. This can vary in natural perfumery, which is done with different intentions and usually using absolutes.

Essential oils include: thyme, clove, peppermint, cinnamon, litsea, Peru Balsam absolute, Patchouli, Eucalyptus, lemon peel, hyssop, basil, helichrysum absolute, jasmine grandiflorum absolute, lime, linden blossom absolute, and more....

If you are looking for a product to protect you and loved ones, especially during travel and holiday festivities, Viral Escape and Entero Virus are blends now available at www.aromahealthtexas.com. Carrier oils are also available, listed under the essential oil tab. EnteroVirus is for colds, flu and viral mutations we may not have been exposed to before. It has essential oils safe for children. Viral Escape is a broad spectrum combination of essential oils and Petite Fleur essences for most exposures. The research for these oils has been done in test tubes, meaning the essential oils killed the bug or did not allow it to grow. Some studies have also been done clinically, indicating certain essential oils to be as effective as many antibiotics and antivirals. These have been done in Europe and countries who have many exposures to a variety of virus.

In Japan, measles, mumps and rubella vaccines were banned in 1993 because so many children developed non viral meningitis and various complications and reactions. The children may have reacted to one of the many toxic chemicals included in the vaccines. My point is research is available indicating  why essential oils and essences can be safe and effective in trapping most viral, bacterial and fungal infections and exposures.

Many of you know I had twins over 40 years ago with insufficient immunity. I learned to use foods, trace mineral analysis, Petite Fleur Essences and essential oils as needed to bring them into a healthy, productive life. They were not expected to live, drugs or not. I only used essential oils as they grew towards teen years. The Petites, such as Yarrow, thyme, sage and several other essences in the Immune kit breathed life into their immune system and catalyzed better health. Nature has provided an answer to every problem of health and longevity I have encountered. It is a lifestyle change, not a fix when a problem occurs and nothing else works. Consider these natural healers for viral and bacterial exposures that could lead to more symptoms as you mature.
