Understanding Grades of Oils
Something that was not clear to me at first is that there is a BIG difference between the types of Essential Oils. For all I knew, oils were oils, and even though I knew about lavender scented products in my grocery store – I had no idea about the possibilities of supporting my health, naturally, with Essential Oils. Let me explain, all Young Living Essentials Oils are pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. That means care has been given to every single drop, to ensure that the medicinal properties have been retained.
There are 4 Grades of Essential Oils:
A WORD ABOUT PURITY
Don’t be fooled! Young Living’s oils are therapeutic and medicinal. They are derived directly from the plant (as intended by our Creator) – not in a laboratory. They are never extended/adulterated with chemicals. Don’t think that you can purchase less expensive essential oils and get the same results.
ADULTERATED OILS AND THEIR DANGERS
Today much of the lavender oil sold in America is the hybrid called lavandin, which is cut with chemicals to improve the fragrance. Then solvents are added and it is sold in the United States as lavender oil. Most consumers don't know the difference, and are happy to buy it for $3 to $10 per half ounce in health food stores, beauty salons, grocery and department stores, and through mail order.
Some people wonder why they do not get the benefit they expected and conclude that essential oils do not have much value. Most likely, they purchased either a synthetic and adulterated oils. Adulterated and mislabeled essential oils present dangers for consumers. One woman who had heard of the ability of lavender oil to heal burns used "lavender oil" purchased from a local health food store when she spilled boiling water on her arm. But the pain intensified and the burn worsened, so she later complained that lavender oil was worthless for healing burns. When her "lavender" oil was analyzed, it was found to be lavandin, the hybrid lavender that is chemically very different from pure Lavandula angustifolia. Lavandin contains high levels of camphor (12-18 percent) and can itself burn the skin. In contrast, true lavender contains virtually no camphor and has burn healing agents not found in lavandin.
Adulterated oils that are cut with synthetic extenders can cause rashes, burning, and skin irritations. Solvents can all cause allergic reactions, besides being devoid of any therapeutic effects. Even so-called "nature identical" essential oils (structured essential oils that have been chemically duplicated using 5 to 15 of the essential oil's primary chemical compounds in synthetic form) can produce unwanted side effects or toxicities. Isolated compounds may be toxic; however pure essential oils, in most cases, are not. This is because natural essential oils contain hundreds of different compounds, some of which balance and counteract each other's effects.

PREPARING FOR FLU SEASON - Part 2
* * *VICKI OPFER'S FLU TESTIMONIAL & RECOMMENDATIONS:
[Vicki Opfer is in health education and top Young Living distributor and trainer.]
A couple of weeks ago, on the news, two schools were being interviewed. The representative of the first one said that they were seeing 20 new cases of flu a day. The second, the University of Denver where my son, Chris, attends, said that they were seeing 50 new cases a day. Meanwhile, Chris's girlfriend, Rebecca, came down with it, as did my daughter, Jessica's boyfriend, Adam.
When the kids start to become sick, I figure that extra sleep, extra water, and Vitagreen will handle almost anything... I figure that when someone gets sick, they've worn themselves out, and their immune system is weak, so sleep helps that. They're also usually dehydrated; they don't drink enough water and the body becomes toxic because it's not flushing correctly. And the Vitagreen not only offers a wonderful level of stamina, but also balances blood pH, which, when someone is sick, is almost always too acidic... but I knew that this situation was more serious than that... So when Chris and Jessica both started getting sick, we became Aromatic Warriors (as Dr. Penoel says).
They used the following: Exodus capsules - 3 once or twice a day. Longevity capsules - one every 4 - 5 hours for a couple of days, and then one or two a day for a while. SuperC - 2 - 4 tablets twice a day. Linus Pauling said that we need 10,000 units of vitamin C a day to maintain health. Most of us are lucky to get a couple of hundred... When we get sick, or have allergy symptoms, we start taking at least 1,000 mg of C twice a day - morning and evening. It's water soluble so it does not get stored in the body, and that's why we have to take it about every 12 hours for it to be effective.
A capsule filled with 3 drops of Thieves with 1 drop of oregano in it. (If someone has never taken an oil internally, they have to start with NO MORE than 3 - 4 drops and work their way up, just to make SURE that their body tolerates it well, and if it heats up in the stomach, they drink milk or olive oil, NOT WATER) . The swallowed this capsule once a day.
Thieves Lozenges - They took these off and on during the day. This will be THE product of the season - please make sure to have several of these on hand this year - they're amazing. When you start having a sore throat and take one, two, or three of these in succession, the sore throat simply goes away. If you're coughing, and use one, the cough stops immediately. They also seem to work for 8 out of 10 headaches, offering relief within a few minutes, in most cases. So Jessica, Chris, and I never did catch the flu, even though we had several people who we were spending a lot of time with, who did have it... What a relief! Who has time to be sick, these days?
The Winter Rescue Trio: The following may also be helpful (remember - use what you have): RC and Raven - rub on the chest and back, and take deep inhalations. ImmuPower - rubbed on the spine and feet lavender - rubbed on the chest, or in the bath - it's a natural antihistamine. frankincense - to support the immune system - rubbed on the feet, spine, or chest. Thieves - rubbed on the feet
Viruses have a thin band of pH in which they can survive, so if you can change the pH of your body, even slightly, the virus may just go away. To do this, you would begin to eat vegetables and fruits, and not have anything made with flour, sugar, or dairy products. You could eat salads, vegetables - steamed, fruit salad, and a little light protein now and then like chicken or fish. (You can have a little meat - but consider it a side dish - not the main event of the meal...) Vegetable soup is wonderful. If you are a vegetarian, just reduce the amounts of grains and dairy foods for a few days.
If you DO get the flu, by using oils and supplements, you will probably be able to shorten the duration of the illness, which is also a wonderful thing... That seems to have been true for Rebecca and Adam... Lastly, by all means, drink more water, get more sleep, and take your Vitagreen every day!

YOUNG LIVING IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT:
Which oils should you use and how should you use them? Check the Essential Oils Desk Reference, check your intuition, and use what you have on hand! And don't forget to carry some emergency oils and supplements around with you.
Keeping stocked in the Essential 7 Kit oils, the Golden Touch 1 Kit oils and the Raindrop Technique oils will keep you well-prepared for just about anything. Also recommended are Immupower and Exodus II. And of course, Thieves, which comes in the Golden Touch 1 kit. Longevity softgels and Exodus capsules are powerful immune system supporters, as is NingXia Red Young Juice. For those of you who work in "Yuk, what's-that-smell environments", how about carrying around some of the new Thieves Hard Lozenges, Exodus Caps or Longevity softgels for mid-day emergencies when using the oils is not possible or practical. There are numerous other supportive oils and supplements not mentioned here.
PREPARING FOR FLU SEASON
* * *Every year around the same time the news media floods us with dire predictions about the upcoming flu season, the possibility (or probability!) of an uncontrollable pandemic and the lastest information on the stockpile, or lack thereof, of the flu vaccine.
While some people of the sitting-duck mentality fervently pray to not be struck down, others of us happily marinate in and diffuse our precious oils, drink our daily dose of NingXia Red and take other Young Living immune support products like Exodus, Longevity Capsules, ImmuPro, Thieves Lozenges, etc., along with cultivating positive lifestyle practices (diet, exercize, stress relief).
A FEW TIPS:
According to experts, "Proper hand washing is one of the most effective methods of preventing the spread of flu". Is it possible to "properly" wash your hands in a gas station or restaurant rest room with cold water and yucky pink soap? Try carrying around a little bottle of Thieves Spray and use liberally throughout the day! It works great to nip a sore thoat in the bud, too!
Spend time in a crowded office or school where you are exposed to lots of people sneezing and coughing? For added protection, carry around the new Thieves Hard Lozenges along with your Thieves Spray and your emergency oil arsenal.
Try alternating Thieves Oil and ImmuPower Oil on the bottom of your feet at bedtime throughout the cold and flu season. These complementary oil blends provide a wide range of anti-bacterial and anti-viral germ-busting action.
Drink NingXia Red daily and carry around some sample packets to super charge your system whenever you need an extra boost.
Get that old diffuser out of the closet and start diffusing. This is no time for closet diffusers!
Consult your Essential Oils Desk Reference. Don't have one? Highly recommended! Contact me and I will lead you in the right direction!
Most important: Be prepared and stock up for the winter--you won't get the MAXIMUM benefit if you don't have your oils and products readily available when you need them most. Carry some oils with you at all times. Time and time again, many of us have found that when you get the oils on you and in you when a situation first arises (whether a cold or sore throat is coming on, or you have an accident), there is a greater chance of stopping the progression of the situation before it picks up a full head of steam.

The effectiveness of essential oils cannot be fully understood without some discussion of frequency.
Frequency is a measurable rate of electrical energy that is constant between any two points. Every living thing has an electrical frequency. Robert O. Becker, M.D., documents the electrical frequency of the human body in his book, The Body Electric. A frequency generator was developed in the early 1920's by Royal Raymond Rife, M.D. He found that by using certain frequencies, he could destroy a cancer cell or virus. He found that these frequencies could prevent the development of disease, and others would destroy disease.
Bjorn Nordenstrom, a radiologist from Stockholm, Sweden, wrote the book "Biologically Closed Circuits". He discovered in the 1980's that by putting an electrode inside a tumor and running a milliamp D.C. (Direct Current) through the electrode, he could dissolve the cancer tumor and stop its growth. He found electropositive and electronegative energy fields in the human body.
Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Cheney, Washington, developed new equipment to measure the biofrequency of humans and foods. He used this biofrequency monitor to determine the relationship between frequency and disease. Measuring in megahertz, it was found that processed / canned food had a zero MHz frequency; fresh produce measured up to 15 MHz frequency; dry herbs from 12-22 MHz; and fresh herbs from 2-27 MHz. Essential oils started at 52 MHz and went as high as 320 MHz, which is the frequency of rose oil. A healthy body typically has a frequency ranging from 62 to 78 MHz, while disease begins at 58 MHz.
Clinical research shows essential oils, having the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, can create an environment in which microbes, disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., cannot live. Truly, the chemistry and frequencies of essential oils have the ability to help man maintain an optimal health frequency.
It is wonderful to discover that essential oil frequencies are several times greater than frequencies of herbs and foods. For years, research has been conducted on the use of electrical energy to reverse disease. Scientists in the field of natural healing have believed there has to be a more natural way to increase the body's electrical frequency. This led to the research and subsequent discovery of electrical frequencies in essential oils. Patients felt better emotionally when oils were diffused in their rooms. It seemed that, within seconds, these patients were more calm and less anxious with little exposure and inhalation. Certain oils acted within 1-3 minutes; others acted within seconds. It is fascinating to think that an oil applied to the bottom of the feet could travel to the head and take effect within one minute. The more results that have been seen, the more research has been initiated.
Unhealthy Substances Cause Frequency Changes. In one test, the frequency of two individuals, the first a 26 year old male and the second a 24 year old male, was measured at 66 MHz each. The first individual held a cup of coffee (without drinking any), and his frequency dropped to 58 MHz in 3 seconds. He put the coffee down and inhaled an aroma of essential oils. Within 21 seconds, his frequency had returned to 66 MHz. The second individual took a sip of coffee and his frequency dropped to 52 MHz in the same 3 seconds. However, no essential oils were used during the recovery time, and it took 3 days for his frequency to return to its initial 66 MHz. One surprising aspect of this study measured the influence that thoughts have on the body's electrical frequency. Negative thoughts lowered the measured frequency by 12 MHz and positive thoughts raised the measured frequency by 10 MHz. It was also found that prayer and meditation increased the measured frequency levels by 15 MHz.
