I have recently added a large variety of absolute essential oils to our growing inventory at Aroma Health. Today, Linden Blossom is the newest absolute I have made. Tilia attracted me because it is unique by helping to dissolve stones and hard cysts, cholesterol and arterial plaque.It also reduces headaches, migraines, high blood pressure and tinnitus. Linden is used often at the onset of a cold or flu, by promoting sweating to release the virus entering the body.The nature of Linden is also to calm liver energy that is associated with restlessness, hyperactivity, nervousness and tension. The personality that benefits from Linden is basically wired and high strung. Chemically, Linden is high in Sesquiterpenes, which are anti inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, analgesic and non allergic. They regenerate the liver and glands and stimulate the heart function. Sesquiterpenes also tone muscles, decongest lymph and veins. These chemicals are prevalent in the Labiatae family of aromatic kitchen herbs and plants we use everyday.
The healing properties of Linden may seem unrealistic, until you understand that the inhaled molecules pass the blood brain barrier and create an oxygen rich medium where cancer and many other incurable diseases cannot co- exist. The AMA concurs that a long list of incurable diseases could be cured by introducing healing agents that can pass the blood- brain barrier.However, The AMA is only considering chemically produced pharmaceutical agents to date. What Nature produces is not easily patented.
Apply Linden topically or inhale it often for best results over a period of at least 3 weeks.I suggest applying it on the inner fold of the ear, but not inside the ear hole, or on the throat or neck where it can be enjoyed.

For the past 15 years Harmony and Relaxation therapeutic blends have been used successfully in patient care to reduce the Nocebo effect.The blends are used before and after chemotherapy and cancer treatment at Baylor Hospital's Healing Environment program in Dallas and Irving Texas.Patient care began with bone marrow and stem cell patents and quickly spread throughout all departments, including speech therapy. Topical application allows the aromas to be used with other modalities.
The Nocebo effect occurs when expectations and negative suggestions cause symptoms or illness to occur. Nocebo effect is both biochemical and physiological, displaying with a variety of cues. Cortisol and histamine levels dramatically increase,targeting adrenal and hypothalamus involvement. Recently, Ted Kaptchuk,Harvard medical, proved Nocebo occurs without concsious awareness.
Studies continue to search for understanding, while solution is more evident in patient are.Harmony and Relaxation Therapeutic aroma blends lessen anxiety and unconscious responses. I have clinically used these essences in the United Kingdom and USA for over 25 years to balance a full spectrum of stress and related illnesses. Blood pressure, hydration, chronic illness and pain are some of the symptoms helped by Harmony and Relaxation. These aromas change brain chemistry within seconds affecting hormones, circulation moods and immune responses. Given a repose from the stress response, the brain can adjust to homeostasis.

Headaches are a common source of pain and often mysterious in nature. Most headaches are related to tension and muscle tightening in the neck and base of the skull. Stress, alignment and ergonomics are often the cause of tension headaches. Aromatherapy is increasing in use for helping reduce headache and sinus pain. These are non-invasive aromatherapy pain products that are topically applied and may be safely used concurrently with over the counter and prescription medications.
Relax the Shoulders lotion massaged onto the neck, collarbone and shoulders is best for tension headaches. Deep Massage essence blend applied on the temples and across the forehead help reduce cyclical pain and pain receptors. Each pain aromatherapy blend is calming and soothing. Relaxation and Reduce Stress blends promote calmness and stamina to reduce everyday stressors.
Migraine headaches have several symptoms: sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, vomiting, visual disturbances, auras, tingling, clumsiness and difficulty communicating and hearing. Many factors trigger migraines: hormone imbalance, weather, stress, fatigue, hunger, diet, trauma and neck injuries. Sufferers should use these pain aromatherapy products: Deep Massage daily, and Relax the Shoulders lotion on the neck and shoulders twice daily.
Sinusitis and subsequent headaches and facial pain are best helped with Decongest aroma blend lightly massaged around the nose, cheeks, on the temples and forehead. The Sinus spray can be used throughout the day for quick relief. Allergy blend is also used when common allergens cause sinusitis.
Ear infections are common to most children by the age of three. Deep Massage blend can be worn to reduce pain during medical treatment. Unwind aroma blend worn behind the ears and/or side of the neck increase drainage and may help reduce re-occurrence. If re-occurrence continues, dietary changes may be needed.
