Country MoonI believe in balance; there is no day without night, no white without black, no happy without sad. After all, how can you truly know what elite joy is if you have not experienced the depths of sadness? The problem is that life is usually stuck somewhere in the middle of this balance.

We humans could learn a lesson from animals, as they tend to take life as it is whereas we have to constantly strive to make things bigger, better, more productive, faster. In so doing, and messing with nature, we have upset the balance and created toxins, pollutants and other negatives in our world. The good news is that by getting back to basics, we can tip the scales back in the right direction to create balance again. This is where essential oils come in.

There has been a lot of buzz in the news about them lately, but what exactly are essential oils and how can they help heal us? These oils are highly concentrated plant compounds, essentially (pardon the pun!) the life blood of the plant, performing the same role and function as our blood does for us. Carrying oxygen and other nutrients to the cells, neither plants nor animals could live without this life essential.

The second part of this whole equation on oils is frequency, which is a measurable rate of electrical flow that is constant between any two points. Everything has a frequency or vibration including food, our bodies and even disease. Why do we care about this? Because oils have some of the highest frequencies known to man and because of this they can help create an environment where disease, bacteria, viruses and fungi cannot grow.

Add to this fact that essential oils have the highest level of oxygenating molecules known to man, they can penetrate cell walls to carry vital nutrients that will fight disease at the cellular level. Because of this fact, Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils, calls them the “missing link” in our modern medicine.

The reason they are the missing link goes back to the balance thing. Our very foods, created to sustain us, have been altered by chemical processes in food production, by chemicals that have saturated the ground and waters, and other unnatural processes. Many of these chemicals are ingested and remain in the body. Essential oils have the ability to push the toxins and chemicals from the cells.

Lois, imagine that. Naturally remedies. I believe that natural remedies are all around us but we as a culture have chosen to use medicines to cover the ailments instead of cure the aliments. Nature has a way of producing every thing we need if we would just use it. Modern medicine has developed medications that have side effects that scare me. It appears the side effects are worse than the ailment. Folks want a quick fix which is usually not the case with natural remedies. Prevention of bad health and promotion of good health is not so much pushed in the medical field and when it is there usually is a pill for that. I have to admit that I do take medication for high blood pressure and have had a treatment for prostate cancer but I try to keep the drugs at a minimum and live as simple as I can. I'm a firm believer that a stressful life weakens the immune system and triggers some diseases. ***** Have a great essential oils day.
