Our Emotional State Triggers Our Desires for Food
And we can control these emotional states by inhaling certain scents.
You got it! Essential Oils for Fighting Fat!
Certain smells have been identified to curb cravings, and a lot of these smells can be derived from a few drops of specific essential oils.
It’s important to vary the scents throughout the day so a person does not become desensitized to it. We suggests rotating three essential oils throughout the day to experience the most effective weight loss results.
Use the power of Peppermint Essential Oil for reducing hunger, curbing cravings and aiding weight loss.
A controlled study measured food consumption for participants exposed to peppermint oil versus a control group not exposed to the oil.
The results revealed that those exposed consumed close to 3,000 calories fewer from saturated fat and sugar each week. This amounted to 23% fewer calories based on an 1,800 calorie daily diet for 7 days.
Grapefruit essential oil has been found to aid in weight loss in two distinctive ways.

Firstly, like Peppermint oil, Grapefruit has been found to reduce appetite. A study found that rats who are exposed to the scent of the Grapefruit show a reduction in appetite and an increase in weight loss.
The aroma of the Grapefruit essential oil results in an increase in mood and emotional state and consequently leads to a reduction in calorie consumption.
Bergamot Essential Oil: Run a warm bath, add 10-12 drops of bergamot essential oil and ease yourself in. The bergamot oil acts as a relaxant and sedative and can uplift your mood. Research has also identified bergamot oil as being an effective appetite suppressant.
Vanilla Oil: Some suggest that the scent of vanilla can reduce cravings for sweet foods which are a major source of empty calories. Light a vanilla candle or add a few drops of vanilla essential oil to your diffuser necklace and keep your cravings at bay.

Orange Essential Oil: One of the main reasons those on a diet fail is because they get depressed and binge on fatty foods. Use Orange to rid all depressive symptoms and stay on the right path for weight loss.

Other oils that have been found effective in the fight against fat are patchouli essential oil, ylang ylang essential oil and tangerine essential oil.

Smelling Sandalwood Essential Oil Stimulates Cell Proliferation and Wound Healing
Every Organ can "Smell"
Scientists have identified about 350 separate olfactory receptors in the human nose but have also discovered about 150 of these receptors in other organs, including the heart and liver. Indeed, scent receptors have been found in nearly every human tissue.
There is a big trend towards odor receptors being found elsewhere in the body doing other jobs.
In the nose, one of the main functions these receptors serve is informing the brain about the environment, which may then lead to other effects (such as producing hunger or nausea, or triggering a memory).

It has been difficult for scientists to discover what functions these receptors serve in other parts of the body, although some investigations have begun yielding results. For example, studies have shown that smell receptors on sperm cells can change the direction and speed of swimming, while receptors on colon cells trigger the release of the neurotransmitter serotonin. The latter effect is believed to play a role in what some scientists call the "second brain," a reference to the large role that the gut plays in regulating bodily systems, including mood and cognition.
Sent Spurs Healing
In the new study, researchers tested the OR2AT4 scent receptor in the keratinocytes that comprise the skin's outermost layer. They exposed this receptor to natural Sandalwood essential oil. The researchers explained that, for at least 4,000 years, sandalwood has been a prized perfume and medicinal treatment for skin across East Asia.

Sandalwood essential oil triggered a calcium-dependent signaling pathway in the keratinocytes, leading to a 32 percent increase in cell proliferation and a nearly 50 percent increase in cell migration. Both of these changes are characteristic of wound healing. The experiments were repeated on skin tissue samples that had been scratched, confirming the healing benefit.

The researchers also found various other scent receptors in not just the keratinocytes but also the skin's fibroblasts (which play a role in wound healing) and melanocytes (which are found near the bottom of the epidermis and produce the skin pigment melanin).
So inhale Sandalwood essential oil and use Sandalwood essential oil in a carrier oil such as olive oil, grapeseed, or your favorite one, because the skin cells need to be exposed to the oil for five days to produce the effect.

Spinal Treatment
To promote alignment of the spine, the oils used also align and balance the flow of energy throughout the body. Spinal Treatment Essential Oils increase and align energy flow by opening or releasing blockages that are preventing free circulation.
For Viral, Bacterial, Back Spasms, Spine Compressions, Simple Colds, Flu’s, and Infections.
The essential oils used in Spinal Treatment have powerful anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. They promote back and spine health by aiding in detoxification. These oils help to flush out toxins and kill dormant viruses and bacteria that cause inflammation, pain, and disfigurement of the spine.

The massage incorporates a light feathering motion which awakens the nervous system and brings energy to the spine. Nerve receptors are stimulated and open up to receive the oils and transport them through your entire system, making this technique a great therapy and detoxifier for the whole body.

Vita Flex, is a technique brought over from Tibet that is used on the spinal reflex points of the feet. This technique, when combined with the essential oils, benefits the back by stimulating circulation and promoting lymphatic drainage.
This is a treatment for virus' that are hidden deep along the spine.  They keep coming out and creating problems from time to time.

What about shingles.  Herpes is found in the body in several forms.  Chicken pox, cold sores, mononucleosis, lupus, Epstein bar, chronic fatigue syndrome, shingles.  These are all forms of herpes virus.

The virus hibernates in the vertebrae of the spine, which is why it is so hard to kill the virus.  It lays dormant, sometimes for years.  Children who had severe cases of chicken pox have been found to develop shingles in later years.

Herpes, laying dormant in the vertebrae of the spine, is then brought to activity, travels down the nerve, to the surface of the skin, where it erupts into sores on the surface of the skin, thus completing the cycle.  The sores normally last about 10 days, if not treated.  The entire nerve is inflamed, and extremely sore. This is why the shingles or cold sores are so painful.  The pain is felt in the entire nerve before the sores even break out.

Now for the treatment.  First remove all  metal including belts, jewelry and barrettes to allow the energy to flow freely. 

    Strength combination - Needs to be added to a carrier oil. (1 part essential oil - 4 parts carrier oil or more depending on sensitivity of person being treated. (Actually we just apply the carrier oil to the skin first and then the essential oil instead of mixing in the bottle.) 

  Person being treated needs to lie face down on table or bed or floor.  Should have loose comfortable covering. (Pants really don't work) 

      Add  2 to 4 drops of Strength to each shoulder and 6 or 7 drops on each foot.  After applying to bottom of feet hold hand over as much of bottom of foot as possible.  Right hand on right foot, left hand on left foot.  Need to hold approx. 10 minutes or if you are more sensitive - until you can feel an energy pulse in the feet.  (It aligns the energy of the body - Most important part of treatment) 

  Cover the whole back with a light covering of a carrier oil and then start the rest of the treatment (You can put more carrier oil on if you begin to feel any heat during any part of the treatment) 

       Thyme - 4 to 6 drops along spine from tailbone to neck.  Rub in with gentle upward strokes.    Just barely letting your finger tips touch the back feathering using one hand and then the other from the tailbone to the neck three times. 
       Repeat the above  with hands going out to sides of body. 
       Apply 4 to 6 drops of Cypress along spine from tailbone to neck, lightly massaging in circular motions, clock wise along the side of the spine with gently upward strokes. Do both sides of the spine several times.  (Do not press on spine) 
 Do the same with Birch, Basil and Peppermint
       Apply 5 to 6 drops of Marjoram up the spine and work it in. 
       Apply 5 to 7 drops of  Antispasmodic (added to carrier oil) to each side of the spine and work outward. 

        Apply Ortho-Flex generously mixed into an oil such as almond, olive, etc or a combination of massage oils into the back.  Also do the legs then place a hand towel soaked and folded in as hot of water as you can comfortably stand on the spine and back to "force" the oils deeper into the tissues.  Cover the wet towel with a large dry towel to keep it warm longer.  Leave on until it cools down. 
      Place Birch, Cypress, Basil and Peppermint, along the inside of the leg from the knee to big toe - One at a time in that order.  This is especially useful for helping the colon cleanse itself. 
       Pull ankles to stretch body - helps if person being treated can hold something.  Not too hard and hold a few minutes three times -

Powerful Benefits of Essential Oils
Essential Oils Affect The Psyche
The aroma of essential oils trigger physiological and psychological responses. They lift our moods, aid in fighting mild to moderate depression, increase alertness, calm aggressive behavior, and help us deal with trauma. Essential oils also lower anxiety, increase memory, and even affect our dreams.

Orange, Oregano, Thyme, Tea tree, Juniper, Rosemary
Sooth Burns, Sunburns, Minor Cuts, And Scrapes
Rene-Maurice Gattefosse (1881-1950), the father of aromatherapy, tells of an explosion in his laboratory that covered his arms in severe burns for soothing the skin. He rinsed the burns with lavender essential oils, and they began healing the very next day. Essential oils are also very antiseptic and cleansing to minor cuts and scrapes. Essential oils, with the addition of aloe vera, are very effective.
To Much Sun, Lavender, Geranium, Marjoram, Tea tree, Rose
Support Muscles And Bones
Muscles make up approximately 50 percent of our body weight. Our skeleton consists of approximately 206 bones. This framework enables movement and protects our vital organs.
