Essential Oils: Medicines of the Past for the 21st Century
If you are concerned about the disruptions you see in world governments, weather, food quality, the economy, the depletion of the ozone, the dying of the oceans and just about everything else necessary for life, you are probably preparing the best you can for whatever is coming. Our most important preparation is spiritual preparation. We will need to walk closely with the Lord Jesus Christ and dwell in the secret place of the Most High under the shadow of the Almighty in order to survive the great shaking that is coming.
One concern we should have is in regards to medicine. If there is a great disruption in our society, medical supplies may become scarce or priced out of affordability. Stocking up is difficult because (a) they have a short shelf life or (b) you can only get a prescription for immediate use. It is difficult to get a prescription for antibiotics just in case you might need them at some unknown time in the future.
I am convinced that God is speaking to his Church about this issue of medicine and is leading many of us back to the medicines of the Bible—namely essential oils. If this interests you, I can help you get started today. Essential oils are strong and effective, they take up very little space, and they can be used for many purposes such as antibiotics, pain relief, wound healing, antiseptic, soothing stomach upsets, sanitizing and many other uses. I recently had an ear ache. I put together one drop of helichrysum and one drop of rosemary essential oils and gently massaged them into the skin just under and behind my ear. The pain left instantly!
When considering essential oils it is important to know that not all essential oils are of the same quality. They need to be made using certain procedures that ensure no damage is done to the delicate healing properties inherent in the oils. No chemicals should ever be put in the oils. No high temperatures or pressure should be used to speed up the extraction process. When oils are carefully made from plants using the right processes, the results are oils that contain all the special healing properties of the plants from which they were derived. These oils may be diffused aromatically, rubbed onto the skin and even taken internally. The oils I use are of this quality. I use doTERRA essential oils and have found them to be highly effective and most pleasant to use.
These oils are a gift from God. There seem to be not just one but several different oils for every malady be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. As I write, I am breathing in cedarwood, rosemary and lime essential oils that are wafting up from the diffuser placed on my desk. I use these for mental clarity. Take cedarwood for example. It is able to pass the blood brain barrier right into the brain to oxygenate the cells of my brain. This helps me think more clearly, focus on what I am writing and recall more succinctly the facts I want to convey in this article. Perhaps this is why Solomon used cedarwood for the building of his home and the temple. King David also used cedarwood in the building of his home. In this environment with the fragrance of cedarwood continually in the air they breathed, their ability to govern wisely must have been enhanced. Every night as I prepare for bed, I put these same oils in the diffuser in our bedroom. This has been my practice for several months now and I am definitely experiencing better memory and less confusion. All of us are threatened in our mental faculties because of things in our environment that are attacking our brains—fluoride in our drinking water and toothpaste, heavy metals in our air from chemtrails sprayed in our skies, industrial air pollution, pollution from fire retardants sprayed on our furniture, engine exhaust and many other sources.
There is grave concern amongst medical professionals that almost all our antibiotics are losing their effectiveness. Because of overuse, bacteria have developed a resistance to our antibiotics and we may soon find ourselves with no more effective antibiotics. Most people don’t realize that there are several essential oils that are antibiotic in function—cinnamon oil for example. A few drops of cinnamon oil can be put in an empty capsule and taken internally to enhance our body’s natural ability to fight infection. It can be put in a diffuser to help cleanse the air and, of course, the fragrance of cinnamon is most enjoyable and uplifting. It was one of the ingredients in the holy anointing oil in Scripture. One great advantage of essential oils with natural antibiotic characteristics is that they only kill the bad bacteria and leave the good bacteria free to thrive. This keeps our gut healthy and free to aid the rest of our immune system in the fight against bacterial invasion.
Here is an interesting quote: “… essential oils contain some of the most potent antimicrobial compounds available, and furthering our understanding of them may lead to the development of entirely new classes of drugs.” (http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/01/the-new-antibiotics-might-be-essential-oils/384247/)
Here is another amazing fact from the same website: “Scott Sechler, owner of Bell & Evans Farms, that produced 50 million chickens last year, did it all antibiotic free by using oregano and cinnamon essential oils to fight infection in the poultry.” If farmers were able to stop using antibiotics with their poultry, pigs and cattle, a major advance would be gained in the battle to keep whatever antibiotics we have left effective. However, the pharmaceutical companies would lose billions of dollars so we probably won’t see this happening.
Clearly the topic of essential oils is something that needs to be considered as a major player in the field of medicine as many people seek to turn back from chemicals and synthetic products to the time-tested, biblical and natural methods of the past. No wonder the oils are mentioned hundreds of times in the Scriptures. God even gave specific directions on how the anointing oil for the tabernacle was to be prepared. We can have these same oils in our home for our use!
