The news this morning quoted studies of Americans using pain drugs at the cost of 600 million dollars yearly. The effect for chronic pain is temporary. The brain can go into a dependent cycle, causing more need for medication. Pain is related to inflammatory markers in the brain cells. Aromatherapy can bypass the blood brain barrier within seconds and work through the skin as an immune enhancer.
Most pain responds well to my Stop Hurting lotion, especially if it is muscular/skeletal or arthritis. Swelling and edema responds to Lymph Flow lotion. Circulation Booster increases circulation to the site and cardiovascular system to reduce pain and facial tightness. Relax the Shoulders is great for neck and shoulder pain and tension. It also helps relieve depression. The lotions work on site and through the brain to change the cellular memory. Over time the aromatic lotions and blends can help heal damaged tissue as well.
Pain is experienced individually. Some people are more sensitive and usually experience more pain. Stop Suffering is an essence blend I use often in hospitals to relieve the psycho emotional effects and causes of pain. It also helps reduce dependency, even allowing medications to have the best effect.

The European Chemical Agency intends to label Lavender essential oil dangerous because it has the capability of causing an allergic reaction. To date, by 2018, all lavender essential oil products will carry a health warning. The label may read " May be fatal if inhaled or swallowed ".This is the same labeling on lye, bleach and many poisonous household products. Lavender has been universally used for centuries as a fragrant,skincare product. The main properties are linalool, a terpene alcohol, and linalyl acetate, an ester of linalool.
Every natural or man made product can cause an allergic reaction or sensitivity. In 40 years of hospital, clinical and private practice, I have never experienced any fatality from lavender oil. I have environmental clients who react to a photocopy, patients allergic to olive oil and toothpaste, but these are not considered harmful or fatal by the ECHA.
The European Chemical Agency was created to restrict pollution from synthetic pollution. When my clients ask my opinion about targeting lavender essential oil as harmful, my response is, it is an agricultural product and should be labeled accordingly. My thought is: " It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature". Expect a showdown.
Essential oils can help prevent and treat the outbreak of Ebola Virus. Ebola virus cannot thrive in the presence of Cinnamon leaf and Oregano essential oils. Use the inhaler/diffuser, sold on my website at www.aromahealthtexas.com. Add undiluted essential oils to the inhaler and breathe in the scents several times daily.Mist or bathe the skin in diluted Oregano and Cinnamon oils: 2-3 drops of each in 1 cup of water. Avoid the eyes. Keep any open wounds or areas covered at all times.
To reduce fever, combine 2 drops of each : Eucalyptus citriadora, Fennel and Lemon essential oils in 1 cup of water. Mist the body several times. Other good essential oils for reducing fever is Spearmint and Lime. Same dilution and procedure.
Use Thyme , Rosemary and Coriander essential oils to build immunity as a dilution. In 1 cup of water, add 2 drops of each oil. Mist or apply to the body. This dilution can be applied to the skin in a carrier oil, such as Marula or Red Raspberry in the same proportions instead of water. Massage a few drops of the dilution to the chest 2-3 x daily.

Today Julia Jankowski called to share a recovery story about one of her clients. Julie is an experienced licensed recovery counselor who helps people with various types of addiction and recovery needs. She blogs and supports the community in many ways. Today, Julie called from a jail to share a story about one of her clients. The woman was craving narcotics when Julia appeared with AromaHealth lavender essential oil to help her. She applied the lavender on the lady's wrist and sat with her as the woman became calm and stopped craving after several minutes. She has many stories and ideas to share, which she blogs about daily.
To learn more about Julia's blogs, support and suggestion email her at email@example.com She soon will be suggesting AromaHealth Cravings Therapeutic Blend for addiction and cravings of any imbalance. Julia uses several Aroma Health to help rebuild the self esteem of suffering people.
I really admire those who are called to help our people in ways of addiction and recovery. Many people turn away or are somehow distant from these folks. Alcohol, drugs, food and any addictive behaviour is an illness and imbalance that can be resolved as the community recognizes these people are suffering from a disease, rather than hopeless people who make bad choices. We cannot separate ourselves from our environment and addiction is part of it.
Several years ago, I worked with a very talented and generous anchor man for local news, hospitalized for alcohol addiction. He was a leader in the community involved in many charities and programs for adults and children. However, the disease damaged his immunity to the extreme of having to surgically remove 90% of his stomach. His health was failing before I met him. He passed within a few years at an early age. However, he left with integrity, knowing his recovery gave him lasting peace.

Ancient cultures used Sage as an herb and essential oil for women. The dynamics and properties of the herb balances the conflict of women's active and passive roles at home and in society. Integrating the two enhances longevity and empowers a female.
Sage is an herb that grows in adverse soils and circumstances, surviving intense hot and cold weather. This same virtue enhances women to thrive in adverse circumstances and achieve what most women have not envisioned. Sage addresses a woman's self esteem and worth, encouraging her to excel in the many roles she plays throughout her life.
In the body, Sage enhances health and balance during menses, menopause and beyond. Very few essential oils and herbs target women past menopause, yet Sage helps her seek fulfillment in all stages of adult hood without losing femininity. Sage blends well with Rose, Rosemary, Lemongrass, Lavender,Helichrysum and Thyme to fulfill a woman's health concerns. However, during pregnancy and lactation, Sage is counter indicated as a uterine stimulant which stops lactation after birth. It is very helpful during a long or difficult labor to birth the baby successfully.
Sage is a very strong aromatic herb, which is best used in small doses as a tea or essential oil in a diluted blend. In a tea, I recommend 1 teaspoon steeped in 1 cup of boiled water. (Cover the tea as it steeps) In an aromatic blend, 1-3 drops in a 1 ounce dilution is recommended. I also use Sage healing floral water for purification purposes.
