If you're concerned about the health of your body, mind & spirit, then what breath and applied topically to your skin are also critical to your overall well being.  Your skin is your body's largest organ and anything applied to your skin will either benefit or harm you from the topical application of all of the ingredients.   That only makes sense doesn't it?   Your skin does not live in isolation from the rest of your body.   The same is true for your dog, horse, cat or other animal companion. If you think it does, take some freshly crushed garlic, rub it on the soles of your feet and have someone smell your breath in about 20 minutes!

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the soles of the feet are known as the "second heart" with over 60 reflexology/meridian acupuncture points.  These are the reflective zones representing all of our organs.   Gravity and our natural defense system moves toxins away from our vital organs and the feet become the storage zone for heavy metals and toxins.
The quality of the air that we breath is important and effects every aspect of our being.  The art of Aromatherapy and essential oils have gained a great deal of focus in recent years and if you're not familiar with the art of essences, it might seem like a lot of hocus pocus and very bizarre, new age or just plain strange and will immediately be discounted by western medicine.   However, if you've ever smelled a breathtakingly beautiful flower, your favorite food simmering on the stove or even turned up your nose at the stench of open sewers or waste treatment plants, then you already KNOW how aromas can and do effect you, both positively and negatively.

Essential oils are possibly the oldest form of medicinals and are mentioned frequently in the Bible and other ancient scriptures.  Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts document Medicinal Aromatherapy use before 2780 BC. The name  "Aromatherapy"  comes from a French cosmetic chemist, Rene`-Maurice Gattefosse, Ph.D. While working in his laboratory in 1920 he received 3rd degree burns to his hand and forearm. Looking for something to immediately sooth and stop the pain he emerged his arm in a container that he thought contained cold water.  Within just a few minutes all of the pain had stopped.   To his surprise, his colleague informed him that the container was full of pure Lavender essential oil!   With the continued application of Lavender oil, the burn healed perfectly with no scaring. Since he was a chemist he analyzed the essential oil Lavender and found it to contain healing chemical properties.  The oils also contain hormones, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals and have antifungal, antibacterial, anti-infectious, antiseptic and immune stimulating properties.

Essential oils are extracted from the leaves, bark, roots, flowers, fruits, nuts & berries of herbs, shrubs & trees.  Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to restore, maintain & enhance health, increase well being and in health & beauty routines.  When the strength is discussed, it's not referring to the aroma but to the individual characteristic of the oil.  There are from 200 to 800 different natural chemical constituents with a single essential oil. Because of this fact, no two oils are alike in the way they effect the body or the way the body responds to them.   Some essential oils are thousands of times stronger than the natural fruit, leaf, etc from which is was extracted.  Because of their strength they are NEVER to be applied directly to skin without diluting with a suitable carrier oil or water first.  They are also NEVER to be taken undiluted internally.  This is the safe rule, especially when you're first learning.   Many folks do apply certain oils directly to their skin as some are well within the generally recognized as safe range internally and externally.   We caution against this practice unless you are well versed in this procedure.

Essential oils produce aromatic molecules that interact with your nasal cavity giving signals that are modified by various biological process before reaching your brain's limbic system.  The limbic system is considered the emotional control center of your brain. The aromas create various impressions associated with previous emotions & experiences. Directly connected to the portion of the brain, the limbic system controls heart rate, breathing, memory, blood pressure, stress levels & hormonal balances.

Traditional healers have know what modern research is just discovering and that is, that it appears using aromatherapy & essential oils is the fastest way to achieve a positive psychological or physiological effect.  Many research universities are learning how volatile and quickly positive results can be achieved.  Recently, Dr. Radwan Farag, Ph.D.  the head of the biochemistry department of Cairo University documented the oxygenating molecular activity, antioxidant and antimicrobial activity of essential oils.  Another research project at the University of Manchester, in England, has shown that just  Eucalyptus and Tea Tree oils can KILL live Tuberculosis cells in just 40 minutes.  Do you know of anything synthesized that can approach those incredible results?

Aromatherapy effects the neuro chemistry of the brain and can help to clear sinuses, detoxify, oxygenate, free congestion in the chest, relax, invigorate and produce changes in emotional, physical and mental behavior.  The essential oils penetrate the skin and enter the blood stream within minutes.  Even subtle, undetectable aromas can produce significant results within your central nervous system.   Olfactory membrane contains 800 million nerve endings, which form a pathway to the memory center for fear and trauma.  This area of the brain has 100,000 times more information than sight, touch and taste combined.    Is it a surprise that essential oils have such a positive impact on the emotions and body?   In Europe, thousands of medical doctors prescribe the oils for oral consumption for many disease processes, while American medical doctors are completely untrained in this important, inexpensive, life supporting therapy.    Inhalation therapy will give results within 1 to 3 seconds.  That's within a few seconds, not days, not weeks, not course after course, after course of harmful antibiotics that disrupt the balance of your body and it's beneficial bacteria.   The over zealous, "  protective "  FDA here has not approved this method in the United States, nor will they ever, it conflicts with Big Pharmas' exploitation of helpless Americans.  Just who is the FDA really protecting?

Like everything else synthetic, people are discovering the truth about commercial synthetic fragrance oils.  They contain harsh synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, fillers, binders, builders, colorings, dyes, preservatives, stabilizers, additives and a host of other substances that enable them to sit on shelves for years.   Part of the advertising dollar to lure the consumer is spent on making these harsh chemicals sound more attractive and natural...and the word  " organic "  is being twisted and distorted, implying pure and natural without synthetics, while in fact petroleum products, human waste, horse manure are also organic, but taking a deep whif of them isn't too appealing, is it?   And how would you feel about bathing in them or having them in your body care ingredients?

We offer only 100% pure natural, plant essential oils, with no added water, alcohol, carriers or other synthetic or natural dilutions.   These are not  " fragrance "  oils which not only don't offer any beneficial properties but are composed of dozens or even hundreds of synthetic chemicals in order to create a  " fragrance."  Is it possible that this mass bombardment of synthetic chemical fragrances contributes to   " multiple chemical sensitivity "  a term unheard of 50 years ago?   When you consider everything has fragrance in it, detergents, shampoos, lotions, household cleaners, furniture, clothing, carpet, building materials and the list goes on.   MCS, is on heard of in more rustic cultures.

Essential oil uses are limited only by your imagination.... Dogs & horse enjoy direct  (diluted)  application of the oils and inhalation, cats don't normally like essential oils on their fur but don't mind spritzing.  Birds prefer spritzing around them. Essential oils have been used in the following applications:

Oils can be used for a wide range of problems.  According to Dr. Penoel, one of the leading physicians in this area, oils can effect eight areas of function:

* Congenital (hereditary) conditions

* Organ systems (heart, lungs, etc.)

* Bio-electric aspects of the body

* Infections (viruses, bacteria, etc.)

* The immune system

* Structural components

* Endocrine glands

* Neuro-psychological function

Oils therefore work at several levels of human functioning simultaneously.  Oils can be used both for prevention and as part of a daily health program, and as a treatment for acute and chronic illnesses.  Today, there are thousands of French medical doctors who routinely include essential oil formulations in their remedies.  They are complex systems that bacteria & viruses can't resist or become immune to, unlike antibiotic resistant bacterias.

Depending on where you live and your particular environmental misfortune you may need more extreme measures.   Two years running we were attacked by grasshoppers or locusts, depending on definition. Conservatively speaking there were thousands and thousands of them.   They were on the driveway, in every plant stripping it to just a stalk, on the paths. hanging from tall grass.  It was impossible to take a step without them POPPING up all around you, often to shoulder height, or landing on you, they would crunch under your feet since it was impossible to avoid them.

If you can imagine this scenario, it was a nightmare!

Not much fun and very unattractive. Apparently these invaders come in cycles that can last for years and there isn't any chance of enjoying a garden or plantings of any sorts with them around.    Naturally, we're not interested in poisoning them, our animals and ourselves. After researching, we formulated a blend that does not poison them, but disrupts their breeding cycle.

So this year, they actually had a 3 week head start before I got out to spray them and I thought it was going to be more of the same.    All in all for the entire summer I sprayed less than a dozen times. You could see their numbers diminish.    Here and there there was an occasional grasshopper, and they were looking mighty lonely!   The outdoor aroma smelled like a wonderful ethnic restaurant, not harmful to animals...and gets rid of the problem very quickly.    It was amazing how quickly and easily it worked, the planets survived, we didn't have to crunch on them as we walked.    Life was good.

Mix about 4 oz of this bottle in a traditional poison lawn sprayer that attaches to your hose and that dilutes with water. Should be enough to last the entire season.    We were eliminating our invaders in an area of a little over an acre.    They would move beyond our spraying limits.   Later, we noticed they were also not in our pastures.    July 2007 invasion this year,   we have a grasshopper here and there, nothing to get excited about, and no plant destruction.  I've got my eye on them and am ready to spring into action if they get out of balance again, in the meantime, it's always better to let mother earth control things.  Contains: Grape seed oil, Neem oil, Garlic essential oil, Cayenne essential oil
