August 2010 ~ ALL articles & updates are being posted to our Essential Oils For Healing blog, an excellent resource for learning how to use these healing oils.
Areas I'm particularly interested in are integrative therapies for healing from cancer (including the latest anti-cancer data on essential oils), creating hand-crafted all natural perfumes with pure essential oils in luxurious jojoba, and teaching clients how to support their health & well-being with essential oils.
April ~ Our Essential Oils For Healing blog is where all NEW articles, current reserarch, and our personal discoveries using essential oils are being posted. You're invited to bookmark the EOH blog, subscribe to the RSS feed, or make a comment on one of the posts and sign up for blog updates...that way you won't miss our articles as they get published.
Were you aware essential oils from the orange tree’s flowers, leaves, and rind have powerfully healing effects? With remarkably anti-carcinogenic and anti-tumoral properties, based on it’s high 85%-96% limonene chemistry, ORANGE essential oil has combated tumor growth in over 50 clinical studies.

In our article: ORANGE ~ Therapeutic Essential Oil As an Adjunct Cancer Therapy We ask, WHY aren’t Orange Essential Oil’s awesome anti-Cancer properties common knowledge? My guess…either most oncologists aren’t taught about or aren’t aware of D-Limonene and Perillyl alcohol’s benefits OR there isn’t enough financial incentive to have cancer patients self-administer orange oil for their own recovery as recounted in the personal testimonials at the end of this article.
EASTER, a sacred Christian remembrance of the prophet Jesus’ resurrection, we felt was the perfect occasion to write about a hand-crafted ‘Holy Chrism’ blend that integrates special oils from various religious and cultural traditions: A Special ‘Holy Chrism’ Essential Oil Blend for Blessing & Anointing .
Hands-on Blessings are part of many religious traditions
March ~CLOVE essential oil came to the rescue in my husband's dental health emergency at the end of the month: Clove Essential Oil, The Classic Remedy for Toothaches & Gum Infections
My hubby, Bill’s rear lower molar had been bothering him for a month. It became TOO much…and started throbbing, radiating pain along the jawbone and up the side of his face. I had suggested to Bill several weeks ago to start dabbing the tooth & surrounding gum line with undiluted CLOVE oil in case there was an infection. But as some hubbies are prone to do, he hadn’t bothered. Reminded him again that using Clove oil would help stop the infection FAST! And help numb the pain, since it’s a topical anesthetic.
Initially, Bill applied THIEVES™ ~ a versatile, anti-infectious Young Living Essential oil blend ~ with a cotton-tipped swab dabbing it around the inflamed gum line and right on the sorest areas. Within 1 minute, the pain & discomfort were reduced by 30%. He repeated the application a 2-3 times before going to an emergency mid-afternoon dental appointment.
By 9pm in the evening ~ only 5 hours later ~ when our dentist phoned to see how Bill was doing and asked if the Vicadin was helping with the pain, Bill said he was hardly in any discomfort at all and hadn’t taken any Vicadin, yet. Bill commented a single dose of antibiotic he had taken, when he got home, was “already working.”
Overhearing the phone conversation, I noted a subtle tone of disbelief in Dr. Sandhu’s voice, but being a gentleman and a real doctor, he wasn’t about to dismiss what he likely thought was a placebo effect of Bill’s optimism. Dr. Sandhu encouraged Bill take some Vicadin before bed and to continue with the every-8-hours antibiotic prescription routine to minimize the infection before his root canal surgery the following day.
I, of course, have NO doubts, the two therapeutic essential oils Bill used were actually responsible for the dramatic, rapid reduction in his pain and discomfort. (Read more...)
February ~ We continue discussing 'natural aromatics' in our article: Fragrance & Well-Being: Perfumes that Delight & Heal .
Here are some excerpts...
Essential oils are concentrated healing essenses with powerful effects. It's wise to have a good reference book to guide you in using therapeutic essential oils with care. Before buying my very first bottle of essential oil, I bought a basic essential oils reference book, the Higley's Reference Guide for Essential Oils which I still use today.
Have you noticed? We also have a menu link in the sidebar to essential oils books recommended highly as superb resources by my Clinical Aromatherapy instructor, Linda Smith.
You'll find the Higley's Guide listed there as well as in the Essential Books Store showing all the books I have in my personal essential oils reference library...and others that would be excellent resources. Both the essential oils books page and our store link directly to Amazon.com making it easy for you to read book reviews and buy some of these excellent resources for your own library.
January ~ We introduced Mandarin Spring™, a 'natural' oil based fragrance that elicits appreciative “hmms & ahhs” from everyone who smells it, men and women alike.
A delightful rose & citrus perfume, Mandarin Spring™ has REAL health benefits ~ attributes of its pure therapeutic essential oil ingredients that I infuse in organic jojoba, a luxurious skin emollient.
One friend I gave some Mandarin Spring™ to as a gift found it INSTANTLY stopped her migraine headache after she applied 3 small drops to her forehead, between her eyebrows and rubbed in at each temple.
I'm constantly learning about these versatile healing essences. Just in the last two weeks I've made some TERRIFIC discoveries!
Early in the month I had a finger joint flare-up painfully...with arthritis or some sort of inflammation? It HURT! Decided I wasn't going to put up with that. Used two essential oils with almost instantaneous relief! Gosh, was I pleased and IMPRESSED....
My sweet kitty Jaeci's eyes were a bit watery a week or so ago. Certain viruses can cause those symptoms in cats.
It's not advisable to use essential oils on cats, because their liver physiology is VERY different than other mammals. Some essential oil compounds can be toxic, even deadly. But hydrosols (hydrolats) ~ essential waters obtained during the oils distillation process ~ are VERY therapeutic and extremely gentle.
If you're a cat lover or know someone who is, read how easily & quickly Rose hydrosol cleared up her eyes...
I'm going to explore the healing possibilities of gentle hydrosols this next year, starting with myself and my family.
Every few months I'm planning to add blog posts on my favorite essential oils, discussing their healing properties & therapeutic uses. Here are three articles in this series:
