“Could Enhanced Wellness and Vitality Be Just a Whiff
Aromatherapy – or the use of essential oils – has been
embraced since early times to promote wellness and vitality.
With exciting new research exposing its many potential benefits
for emotional and spiritual well-being, its time has arrived.
What if there was a near instant way to experience joy or
peace? Or support your overall well-being in a gentle,
time-tested way? And it was something you could take
with you wherever you go.
I’m not talking about a new discovery… far from it. Humans
have been savoring these precious gifts from nature at least
since the ancient Egyptians:
…Clay tablets confirm their role in early international
…Middle Age religious orders embraced them
…Hippocrates promoted their daily use
…The Chinese used them well over 2,000 years ago
And India’s Ayurvedic medicine still uses them today –
they’re that valuable for overall vitality and well-being.
Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Whenever I come across a way
to support physical, mental, and spiritual health that
isn’t invasive or costly, it captures my attention. And
I believe, as you learn more, you’ll be impressed, too.
It’s Not Hocus-Pocus… There’s Real Science Behind
While aromatherapy isn’t new, the science surrounding it
called psychoneuroimmunology is.
Simply, it’s the study of how your experiences – both good
and bad – affect your inner self and your immune health.
Here’s what scientists have discovered so far: When you
experience something pleasurable like a soothing massage or the
scent of a fragrant flower, your mood lifts and your well-being
is positively affected.
Try it for yourself… Watch how your mood – and even your
energy – shifts when you cut into a juicy orange or sniff a
sprig of mint from your garden.
The most exciting thing researchers have gleaned from this
new science, in my opinion, is how we can use aromatherapy in
our daily routines to enhance our vitality and well-being, and
even our outlook on life.
And now I’m going to show you exactly how to do it…
Tapping into the Biological Potential of Plants
Aromatherapy allows you to tap into certain specific
compounds extracted from the leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds,
bark, and roots of plants.
These natural aromatic compounds are called essential
When carefully produced, high-quality essential oils are pure
and very concentrated. As little as a single drop can
lift your spirit and improve your mood!
There are multiple ways you can experience the potential of
these exceptional compounds. Many people like to massage
essential oils mixed with a “carrier” oil directly onto their
skin. Others like to add them to their bath water or shampoo.
Still, others can be used internally.
In just a bit, I’ll be providing you with ideas for using
essential oils topically and I’ll even give you some of my
But first I’d like to share with you one of the most powerful
ways to use essential oils…
How Essential Oils Can Shift Your Mood and
Vitality Almost Instantaneously…
Of all your five senses, your sense of smell is the
fastest way to reach your brain.
With a direct path, the nerve fibers of your olfactory system
– or your body’s system for smelling – run straight to the
limbic area of your brain.
It’s here in your limbic system where you find direct links
to your memories and stored learned responses, emotions, and
However, your olfactory system involves more than just your
Certain essential oils, such as peppermint, can be absorbed
through your nasal cavity and through your bronchial
tract and lungs.
These “fast track” delivery systems help explain how your
body – and your brain – can respond so quickly to a calming or
invigorating essential oil scent!
The Newest Way to Diffuse Essential Oils
There are three common methods for essential oil
Heat the essential oil over a candle or light bulb
Apply a few drops to a piece of cloth
Use a ultrasonic or nebulizing diffuser
Burning essential oils over a candle or light bulb is the
traditional way to disperse the scent of essential oils into the
Now there’s a much more efficient way…
We now know that exposing an essential oil to heat can damage
some of its fragile, beneficial properties.
With the new generation of diffusers such as the ultrasonic
or nebulizing diffuser, your essential oil is dispersed into the
air without heating the delicate compound.
With an ultrasonic or “cool mist” diffuser, you simply add
your desired number of drops of one or more essential oils to a
small reservoir of cold water. Within seconds, you have a cool,
However, do check your options before buying a cool mist
diffuser… Some models have lights that can’t be turned off at
night, a real disadvantage.
Another option is the nebulizing diffuser. This type doesn’t
require water to disperse the essential oil – rather the
diffuser attaches directly to the bottle of essential oil. Much
like the ultrasonic diffuser, it disperses fine particles of the
essential oils into your air.
Both the ultrasonic and nebulizing diffusers provide
continuous distribution of the essential oil in a way that is
easy for your body to absorb, so you experience ultimate
benefits. You also are able to enjoy each essential oil’s unique
No matter which way you choose to enjoy your essential oils,
there’s something important you need to know about them…
Don’t Be Fooled by “Professional Grade” Fancy-Talk
When shopping for essential oils, you’re likely to see the
words “professional grade” on certain products.
You may wonder… Does this mean they are a special grade or a
higher quality reserved for professionals?
Manufacturers may want you to believe that, but you need to
know there is no official grading system for essential
oils. Anyone can label their product “Therapeutic Grade” without
meeting any special criteria.
Don’t take their word for it… It’s up to you
to be the “grading system” for quality!
When evaluating essential oils, always look at these factors
that indicate quality:
Where are the plants grown? Plants
grown in their indigenous regions tend to be healthier.
Watch out for “unknown country of origin!”
Is it the correct species of plant?
Watch out for cheaper substitutions. Make sure you’re
getting the correct species, especially with lavender. Avoid
products that don’t label the botanical name of the plant!
When is it harvested? When a plant is
harvested influences the potency of the valuable
constituents in its leaves, stems, and flowers.
Is it a synthetic fragrance oil or perfume
rather than an actual essential oil? There’s a big
difference. For true benefits, you want a quality essential
oil for its biologically active compounds, or the beneficial
properties that make it work, not just for its scent!
How much does it cost? If it seems like
too good of a deal, you’re probably better off avoiding it.
High-quality essential oils are responsibly grown and safely
extracted without using harmful chemicals. They naturally
will cost more.
How is the essential oil extracted?
Look for essential oils that are either cold-pressed or
steam distilled rather than extracted with harsh solvents.
Has it been diluted or mixed with anything else?
For purity, look for a 100% essential oil.
That’s the only way you know it hasn’t been diluted or
adulterated. This is another way price can be a tipoff.
Do they test their products for purity?
Are the essential oils tested for their identity (or
verification that the ingredients on the label are correct),
purity, quality, and safety? Look for essential tests like
Gas Chromatography (GC) and Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
Now that you know what to look for, let’s cover a few points
that may not be so evident…
Beware of Essential Oils That Carry Unwanted, Hidden
As I’ve just shown you, the quality of essential oils varies
widely. You must do your due diligence.
In addition to the factors that indicate quality, check to
make sure your essential oils don’t contain these hidden
Synthetic ingredients – If you see the
word “fragrance,” this almost always means “hidden
chemicals.” The fragrance industry uses over 3,100 chemical
GMOs – Beware of genetically modified
ingredients. Eucalyptus is one essential oil that is
sometimes genetically engineered.
Chemicals – Harsh chemical solvents
used in the extraction process can be potential neurotoxins
and can cause skin irritation.
Pesticides and herbicides – If they are
used during growth or processing, they will most likely
remain in the oil after steam distillation.
Here’s your best bet for a quality product… In addition to
all these criteria, look for the USDA Certified Organic
seal! You’ll get a higher standard of product when you go
with an organic essential oil.

However,when using 100% essential
oils, because they are so concentrated, mixing them with a
“carrier” oil helps safeguard against irritated skin.
This is a very important safeguard.
What is a carrier oil? It’s an oil that can be used to dilute
essential oils before they are applied to the skin in massage
and aromatherapy – they help “carry” the essential oil onto the
