)-- Did you know that, in centuries past, our ancestors used essential oils for many medicinal purposes? Priests and physicians used them to heal and to purify those who came asking for help. Essential oils are still very useful for people today, although we often neglect to understand their true power. While the mainstream media likes to push pharmaceuticals and physician-based healthcare through shameless commercials and ads, you will rarely hear the media talk about essential oils.
Over time, as we overlooked the powerful benefits of essential oils, people have become unaware of the profound difference they can make. Most people are quite surprised to hear that essential oils have anti-cancerous, anti-infectious, and anti-bacterial properties. Research has shown that these properties not only destroy viruses and bacteria within the body, but they can also restore internal balance to make recovery much faster.
While many people believe that essential oils are only for hippies and alternative therapy gurus, these myths are ably dispelled with the release of the new e-book “Introduction to Essential Oils” written by Diana Hooper. This e-book contains many little-known facts about essential oils and the benefits they provide.
For example, Americans tend to be of the opinion that if a therapy/treatment is not originated by American health care, it is worthless or fake. Most alternative therapies are part of or evolve from ancient healing systems used by various cultures from around the world. Far from being a fad, alternative medicine has been utilized for thousands of years. While essential oils have been a healing agent for centuries, most people think it is a new concept.
Hooper also points out that essential oils can affect our emotional well being. Essential oils are used in aromatherapy, where the fragrant aromas are used to induce a certain feeling in a person. For instance, some essential oils can produce a calming effect when used for aromatherapy, while others can be invigorating.
Studies have backed up the claims that aromatherapy is effective for inducing mood changes. In one test, keypunch operator errors were reduced by half after lemon scent was piped through the ventilation system. Japanese corporations now utilize scent to increase worker performance. Another test showed that New York subway riders became less aggressive when the cars were scented with pleasing food smells. Lastly, it was found that eucalyptus oil keeps truck drivers as alert as caffeine.
