Essential Oils from the Bible

essential-oils 1In the first chapter of Genesis it is written that the Almighty placed man and woman in the Garden of Eden. The Almighty knew from the very beginning that this ‘perfect’ environment would be the key source for mankind’s health and well being.

Daily applications of essential oils in Biblical times were common and was medicine provided by the Almighty.

The Almighty provided these plants and oils to heal our bodies, minds and Spirits. They were the original source of healing used in combination with Massage, Reflexology, and ‘Hands On’ Healing.

How do essential oils work?

Essential oils immediately penetrate the skin and cellular membranes. They diffuse throughout the blood and tissues instantly in a matter of seconds! Oils cross the brain-blood barrier and reach the amygdala and the limbic system which is the integrative center for emotions, emotional behavior, and motivation, in the brain.

List of Biblical Essential Oils:

Cinnamon Bark – The warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon has been sought throughout the ages both as a valuable commodity and for its ability to improve wellness. Cinnamon is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function, and acts as an antiseptic. You can also use it to enhance your cooking, or dilute and massage into chakras to create a soothing, relaxing sensation.

Frankincense – Has a sweet, warm, balsamic aroma that is stimulating and elevating to the mind. Useful for visualizing, improving one’s Spiritual connection, and centering, it has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress and despair. Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. More recently, it has been used in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research. Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. The ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks.

Juniper – Has a clean, mildly penetrating, woody scent that has a cleansing effect on the mind, Spirit, and body. It may work as a detoxifier and cleanser, is beneficial to the skin.

Pine – Has a refreshing, invigorating aroma. First investigated by Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, pine is soothing for stressed muscles and joints when used in massage. It shares many of the same properties as Eucalyptus, and the action of both oils is enhanced when they are blended.

Cypress – Has a woody smell and has been known in supporting the body’s natural response to irritation and injury as well as aiding normal breathing. This oil also has historical use as an additive in perfumes and as an adhesive.

Galbanum – Has an earthy aroma. It was used in ancient temple ritual incense anointing associated with springtime. Galbanum supports the immune, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and other body systems.

Myrrh – Has a rich, smoky, balsamic aroma that is purifying, restorative, revitalizing, and uplifting. It is a helpful aid to meditation, having one of the highest levels of sesquiterpenes available. Sesquiterpenes are a class of compounds that have a direct effect on the hypothalamus, pituitary, and amygdala, the seat of our emotions. Myrrh is referenced throughout the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The Arabian people believed it helped wrinkled, chapped, and cracked skin. Today, myrrh is widely used in oral hygiene products.

Spikenard – Was highly regarded in India as a perfume, health-supporting herb, and skin tonic. Prized at the time of Christ, it was used by Mary of Bethany to anoint the feet of Yeshua before the Last Supper. This is a relaxing and soothing oil for the skin.

Cedarwood – Has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage, and has long been used as a beneficial ingredient in cosmetic preparations for oily skin.

Sandlewood – Has a rich, sweet, warm, and woody aroma that is sensual and romantic. Used traditionally as incense in religious ceremonies and for meditation, it is uplifting and relaxing. It is valued in skin care for its moisturizing and normalizing properties.

Fir – Traditionally used for muscular aches and pains, the warm aroma of balsam fir soothes and rejuvenates body and mind. It is known for supporting respiratory function and also believed to create an uplifting sense of well-being.

Hyssop – A biblical oil that was also sacred to ancient Greeks, has a fresh, woody scent that is slightly sweet. Hyssop is noted for its purifying properties.

Myrtle – Has a clear, fresh, herbaceous scent, similar to eucalyptus. Supportive of the respiratory system, skin, and hair, it has been researched for its effects on glandular imbalances* and its soothing effects when inhaled. It is also helpful for meditation and lifting the Spirit.

Essential Oils are making a remarkable and necessary reemergence. Essential Oils were a commodity during biblical times, and it is a commodity now. They will be ‘essential’ in the future of health and overall well-being. Christ Yeshua, Mary Magdalene, and many other disciples wrote about and used essential oils in their daily routine. Now allow yourself to heal with the nectar of Nature.

May you be blessed with happiness, health, wealth, joy, bliss, and longevity!

The Benefits of Wheatgrass

Wheat Grass

Just two ounces of wheat grass juice contains the vitamins and minerals equivalent to three (3) pounds of organic vegetables, and is especially high in magnesium, potassium, and calcium.

Wheatgrass juice is approximately 70% living chlorophyll, making it one of the best ingestible sources of chlorophyll available. Chlorophyll oxygenates the blood and organ tissue, impedes the growth of harmful bacteria in the digestive tract, neutralizes toxins and helps purify the liver.

Wheatgrass improves digestion and relieves constipation.

Wheatgrass rebuilds red blood cell count, naturally regulates blood pressure, and helps regulate blood sugar.

Wheatgrass juice acts as a safe agent for internal cleansing, possessing powers of detoxification more than ten times superior even to long-time detoxification favorites like carrot juice.

Prayers for Shielding & Protection from Psychic Energies!

Spiritual Warrior
Ephesians 6:10-18 NIV

The Armor of God

Finally, be strong in Christ and in its Mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of Love & Peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray with pure intent in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying to God for Humanity and Gaia, Mother Earth.

AND SO IT IS.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;

to understand, than to be understood;

to love, than to be loved.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.

Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

Massage image

Stress and Tension Release:

Stress and tension relief is one of the most prominent benefits of massage therapy today.  It’s also a key component for anyone in the process of achieving a healthier, happier lifestyle.

Taking care of the body, ‘our temple’ should be a priority for everyone in life.  By adding therapeutic massage to your daily life will help you to feel, look and simply feel healthier.  Stress relief can also improve your vitality, energy levels, overall wellbeing and state of awareness.

Benefits of Stress Relief:

*Lowers Heart Rate

*Lowers Blood Pressure

*Relaxes Muscles and Joints

*Increases Endorphins

Encourages Relaxation:

The body can produce an unhealthy buildup of excess hormones and lactic acid when we become stressed in our life.  Pent-up levels of the “stress hormone” cortisol, and the “chemical compound” lactic acid can lead to symptoms of sleeplessness, headaches, emotional & mental imbalances, digestive problems, muscular and joint stiffness and pain.

Therapeutic Massage has been shown to decrease cortisol and lactic acid levels in the body. This allows the body to enter a relaxing state of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual recovery­.  In fact, massage triggers a brain chemical release of endorphins, which can result in long standing feelings of relaxation, happiness, lowered stress, improved mood and mental stability.

Benefits of Improved Relaxation

*Improves mental stability

*Allows for better handling of life’s pressures and stresses

*Reinforces a much more positive attitude and outlook

*Promotes relaxed states of mental, emotional and spiritual awareness

*Enhances calm, peaceful, and creative thinking

Improves Posture:

Most people are unaware of their posture throughout the day.  Improper posture can lead to muscle strain, soreness and stiffness.  When you hunch forward on a constant basis, your body and spine become unaligned.  Your muscles begin to push, pull and condense when we are not aware of the proper posture, and can cause extreme discomfort.

Therapeutic Massage can relax the muscles that are inducing the improper posture, allowing the body to re-position itself in its natural state of being; head held high, with shoulders pulled back.

Benefits of Improved Posture

*Muscles are loosened and relaxed

*Greater joint mobility

*Pressure points are relieved

*Improved Blood Circulation

Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion:

Therapeutic Massage stimulates the production of the body’s natural internal lubricants to keep joint and muscular flexibility at a maximum and optimal level.

Benefits of Flexibility

*Increased joint mobility and range of motion

*Increased muscle flexibility

*Can enhance athletic performance

*Helps prevent active lifestyle injuries by staying flexible

Improves the depth of Breathing:

One of the signs of stress, anxiety and muscular tension, is constricted breathing.  When the body becomes stressed, our diaphragm begins to constrict.  It causes the body to take shallow, short breaths which cause oxygen constriction.

Many muscles in the front and back of the upper body and torso are accessory respiratory muscles.  If any of these muscles are chronically tight and shortened, they can restrict normal breathing and disrupt breathing patterns.  Therapeutic Massage can lengthen and relax these muscles, with the improvement in breathing capacity and function.

Improved breath function and capacity can also improve posture. This leads to an opening of the chest and diaphragm area needed for optimal lung capacity. When the parasympathetic nervous system responds to massage, the breath rate slows and becomes deep and regular.

Benefits of Improving Breathing

*Controls breathing to aid in relaxation

*Increases oxygenated blood flow to all areas of the body

*Increases energy level and vitality

Strengthens the Immune System:

People who experience high levels of stress and tension tend to get sick more than others. Combined stress and tension, with lack of sleep and poor nutrition, the human immune system’s ability to naturally protect itself against bacteria and infection is greatly reduced.

Clinical studies have indicated that regular massage not only help alleviate stress, but can naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity (the activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”) and decrease the number of T-cells, which improves the body’s immune functioning overall.

Benefits of Strengthening the Immune System

*Increases the body’s natural killer (white blood) cells

*Aids in the fight against bacterial and fungal infection

*Naturally enhances the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and vitamins needed for an optimal

functioning immune system.
