Essential oils are volatile, aromatic compounds found throughout nature in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. Each essential oil is composed of 200-500 different biocomponents, which make them very diverse in their effects. No two oils are alike. The power of an essential oil lies in its components and the synergy between them.
Essential oils have a unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and travel throughout the blood and tissues. Their structure is very similar to that of a body’s cell membranes and with their relatively small size, penetration into cells is enhanced. When administered,essential oils can travel throughout the body in a matter of minutes.
From ancient writings and traditions dating back to 4500 BC,it appears aromatics were used for religious rituals, treatment of illness and other physical and spiritual needs. Ever since, essential oils have played a prominent role in everyday life. Even the Bible contains over 200 references to aromatics, incense and ointments.
Essential oils were reintroduced into modern medicine in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and have benefits for many conditions. I have been using essential oils to treat my patients with wonderful results. Some of the patients and conditions I have used essential oils to treat include emotional balance, anxiety, kidney disease, nerve damage, tissue healing, pain, diabetes, viral and bacterial infections, hypothyroidism, lower urinary tract disease, spondylosis, disk disease, bone spurs, arthritis, liver disease, immune stimulus, allergies,vaccinosis, vomiting, respiratory infections, cancer, lick granuloma,lacerations, laryngeal paralysis, parasites, ear infections, diarrhea,constipation, anorexia, and Cushing’s disease.
Essential oils are a wonderful addition to many modalities I use to help animals heal their own bodies and seek a higher state of health.
