Bronze Fennel Essence and Eye Health

Recently, several clients experienced a stroke affecting the eyes. Their question is how to heal the area affected to increase visual acuity. I have recommended Bronze Fennel Petite Fleur Essence to help stroke, glaucoma and macular degeneration affecting the eyes. The application is topical. Message two (2) drops on the middle of the forehead three(3) times daily. It may take several weeks or months to increase circulation and affect healing. Bronze fennel is safe and effective. DO NOT put the essence in the eyes or on broken skin

The Healing Properties of Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute

The heady scent of Jasmine grandiflorum absolute is a perfect scent for winter. It  dispels coldness, tiredness, weakness, hoarseness, laryngitis, wheezing and dry itchy feeling in the throat. The warm , pungent aroma enhances the body's ability to keep warm in cold conditions without overheating. When a chilly feeling starts to spread through your system, reach for the Jasmine. The ketone properties protect the lung and immune system, while the esters protect irritated, dry and inflamed skin. Cis- jasmone and methyl jasmonate have the ability to repair injured tissue and dispel mucous colitis brought on during cold weather.

The lightly sweet scent helps free the spirit from emotional restraint, anxiety, listlessness and general depression, often experienced during cold weather. The aroma helps us remember our freedom as it enhances  intuition. The smell is unforgettable. Many people who do not enjoy sweet flowery scents find Jasmine irresistible.

Cold sensitive folks often urinate frequently during winter time. Women may also experience a clear or white vaginal discharge. Wearing Jasmine grandiflorum can assist the reproductive and urinary system during this time. Nursing mother wear it to promote lactation. Wear Jasmine during delivery to assist the natural process. I don't recommend it during pregnancy.

For those who experience sexual disinterest and feelings  of inadequacy or undesirability, Jasmine grandiflorum will reawaken a natural passion. Winter is a great time to cuddle. And Jasmine is a great gift for the holidays.

Boswellia serrata Fights Chronic Inflammation

Boswellia serrata contains anti inflammatory compounds that reduce inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, cardiovascular disease and cancer metastasis. Boswellia terpenes and acids, particularly, AKBA, 3-o-acetyl-11-keto-beta-bowelllic acid, inhibits inflammatory cells that stick to blood vessels causing many inflammatory diseases, including stroke and memory loss. Another component of Boswellia, incensole acetate, inhibits an inflammatory regulating complex inhibiting or slowing chronic inflammation throughout the body.

Boswellia is also neuroprotective against traumatic brain injury. Neuroprotection originates from incensole acetate. The effect is also antidepressant/antianxiety and benefits asmatic bronchitis.

Cancer and tumor necrosis is also benefited by Boswellia. It inhibits pro inflammatory cytokines and mediators. Ninety percent of death from cancer results from tumor metastasis, caused by inflammation. Recent research also found Boswellia decreases precancerous polyps and their formation in the small and large intestine up to 60% AKBA, the most potent boswellic acid, induced cell death in central nervous system tumors.

In recent studies, Boswellia extracts reduced the size of  arterial plaque up to 50%. Extracts also inhibit platelet stickiness and clumping. Chronic inflammation reduces blood flow, resulting in arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular, peripheral vascular disease and general aging. In rat studies, Boswellia reduced total cholesterol up to 48% and increased good cholesterol, HDL, by 30%. This can be done by reducing changes in pro inflammatory gene expressions.

In arthritic studies, Boswellia compounds have reduced and improved conditions in knee and osteoarthritis.

 The healing compounds in Frankincense essential oil includes monoterpene hydrocarbons, ketones and spiritually, sesqueterpenes. These properties transform the recipient beginning with improved digestion, reduced inflammation and tumor formation,protecting immunity to transformation of the psycho spiritual nature of enlightenment. Boswellia serrata originates from India and has been used in Ayurvedic healing for many centuries. The properties of Boswellia carteri and sacra are considered the same. Sacra, Oman, is more expensive and has a lighter fragrance. When it comes to healing, the body's innate consciousness takes the best of available properties and makes the most of it. I have all three available. Contact me if I can help you. I am  involved in a small group of international distllers that grow and distill onsite in small, organically grown quantities.

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.
