Powerful Olfactory Sense

The olfactory sense is the oldest sense, which was developed millions of years ago. It is the only sense that is directly connected to our brain by way of more than 70,000 neurons. This is how so many primordial emotions can be communicated through this sense.

Aromatherapy is both an art and a science that encompasses the controlled and skilled use of pure essential oils for promoting health and well-being. Aromatic plants, essential oils, floral waters and their extracts have been used for thousands of years throughout history by every culture. There are several applications for aromatherapy including massage, aesthetics, psycho-emotional, as well as clinical and therapeutic usage. It is considered a holistic and natural alternative for health maintenance. To date, there is no licensing for "aromatherapists", however, many health professionals practice safe use under their individual license, albeit nursing, massage therapy, naturopathy, etc. Although, it is highly recommended that a thorough course of study be undertaken in aromatherapy if one wishes to practice this holistic methodology within the framework of their present license.

Uses of Aromatherapy

1 Massage is the most used form of treatment with Aromatherapy. The chemicals that essential oils are made of can enter the blood system better through the skin, which constitutes 2.5 square meters of area, and is the largest organ in the body. Not only the essential oils have beneficial nutrients, but also the carrier oils such as grape seed oil that we use to dilute the essential oils.
2 Creme Many people use cremes to hydrate their faces and hands, but without the consideration that cremes can be much more useful than just that. Our skin is very porous and can absorb many chemicals from the outside world. We even breath with our skin, so much so that if we were to cover our bodies we would die from a lack of oxygen! For this, if you want to protect your skin against wrinkles, it is not necessary to augment your diet with more nutrients or take pills, but can provide nutrients directly to your skin. Cremes are not only useful for wrinkles but also to introduce nutrients to the blood system. We use cremes made from different types of carrior oils to help provide beneficial nutrients, and to keep the essential oils on the skin so they can enter before they dissolve and evaporate because of their thin consistency.
3 Compresses can be in the form of pieces of cotton, cloth, or a towel. These should be soaked in hot or cold water depending on the treatment. By adding some drops of essential oils to the cloth and putting it on the body, you can help pains or infections that are localized.
4 Baths If you want to take a bath for therapeutic, or simply aromatic reasons, you only need to apply about 10 drops of essential oil until the oil has dissolved throughout the bath water.
If you don't want to take a bath, it is sufficient to soak your feet with oils, as the skin around the feet is the best place in the whole body to absorb oils. Precautions: In the case of babies or people with sensitive skin, oils can be dissolved in a teaspoon of milk in order to avoid irritation.

5 Inhalation Inhalation of essential oils can help with respiratory infections, such as asthma, bronquitis, congestion, etc.. A good way to inhale the oils is with a container of boiling water with three drops of oils, and covering the head with a towel and inhaling the vapor for ten minutes. Another way to inhale the oils is by droping about two drops of oils on a cloth and inhaling it from that.
6 Ingestion Essential oils can be ingested to help with some specific intestinal problems, but although the oils smell quiet nice, one should be very careful and not do so without the guidance of an aromatherapist.

Diffusion

This is the dispursion of essential oils throughout a room to create a subtle and pleasant aroma that can improve the environment. One of the ways to do this is with a ceramic vaporizor like the ones we sell. With just about ten drops of essential oil mixed with water you can have a nice smelling room all day:

1 Diffusior Lamp whose upper bowl is filled with about four or five drops of essential oil, with the heat of the candle or an electric light bulb.
2 Sprays or diffusors Are bottles filled with water that have about three percent of essential oils in them. You can spray them around a room to create an instantly good smelling room.
3 Fan A room can be spread with the pleasant smell of essential oils by putting some drops on a cloth or piece of paper and placing it in front of a small fan. This is a good way to provide an aroma to a specific area.


Essential oils

Essential Oils are very concentrated, complex volatile components which are responsible for giving scent to various botanicals. They are steam distilled from the flowers, leaves, fruit, seed, bark, wood, root or resins of a particular plant. It is important to know the Latin/botanical name of the essential oil you are purchasing; as some species have several different bio-types, resulting in a different essential oil chemotype or major chemical constituent. It is also imperative to know the country of origin, how the material was processed, how it was grown, and if it was rectified or reconstituted. Only the highest quality pure and authentic essential oils should be used for therapeutic results, preferably organically farmed or wild crafted sources. Highly processed, denatured, adulterated or oils of compromised quality or synthetic origination do not have a place in true aromatherapy and should not be used in the therapeutic setting. Essential oils can be used in many pleasurable, health promoting and preventative ways - from aiding minor common ailments, stress related diseases and skin problems, to preventing the spread of bacterial infections, relaxing the mind and body, or stimulating the immune system.
Essential oils can be mixed with massage oils and lotions for topical application, inhaled via air dispursion, applied by compress and experienced through aromatic baths with the use of salts or other emulsifying agents. More often than not, essential oils are diluted and mixed with a carrier oil before applying to the body.

1 Use & Safety Not all essential oils produced, nor sold over the counter are safe for personal or professional use. Some essential oils are skin irritating and phototoxic, and some are considered unsafe and possibly hazardous. Therefore it is important to gain proper knowledge and training of their properties and safety. Special care should be given for young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and persons with a history of epilepsy and asthma.
Another care we should take is with the ingestion. It is considered that the esencial oils shouldn't be ingested to avoid problems. One reason to not ingest essential oils is for their bad flavor, even though the smell is marvalous. It shouldn't be forgotton that the oils are very concentrated and can ocasionally cause serious damage to the stomach and intestines.

Essential oils

There are about 200 different types of essential oils. You can see a small description of all the oils that we sell by clicking to the right. Some are more common than others because they are more economical and effective. You can read a deeper description of the common oils by clicking to the left.

The essential oils are produced from all the parts of the plants that have medicinal attributes. As we already know humanity is connected to nature because we have to oxygenate and nutrify ourselves with the ingredients of nature. Our body is composed of the same material that we find in the earth and in plants.

Each part of the plant has a specific function. And the oil completes the function for the plant the same as it does for us. For example, the leaves help the plant breath, so the oil extracted can help our lungs oxygenate our bodies better. Plants are divided into five parts, and each one of these have different characteristics:

The flower: Is the most superior part of the plant and thus has an effect on the imagination for art and poetry. The seeds and fruit: Because we eat seeds and fruit, they can give us the nutrients we need for our bodies, and also give us joy. Leaves and twiggs: Have many different effects. Trees, aromatic wood, and resins: Because they are large and old, they are good for meditation, respiration, giving wisdom, and healing. The root: Because it comes from the earth, it is good for grounding, calming, and feeling sure and safe.

Science of Aromatherapy
by
Kyle Pounds

Aromatherapy, the use of essential oils for health; is the most ancient, basic, and complete way to be in touch with the rest of the world, and thus grow as an individual and society. This paper will explore the scientific reasons for the importance of aromatherapy, from spirituality to chemistry, and
cosmology to quantum physics. By the end of the paper I hope the reader will be able to explain to a skeptic why Aromatherapy is important, and have a solid base to explore all the benefits that can come from using essential oils. Chapter one, the spirituality of aromatherapy, explains how and why the universe is one and therefore symbiotic; therefore disolving the overbearing hold secularistic thought has on our worlds mind. This chapter will use scientific truths and historical facts to make clear the benefits of seeing the world as one, and the harm in seeing the world in a dualistic way. Then I will explain why Aromatherapy is a holitsic form of medicine and what medicines aren't holistic and why. Chapter two, astro and quantum physics, will begin with describing cosmology, and work it way down to quantum and hyperdimensional physics, setting the stage for the chemistry of essential oils. Chapter three, the chemistry of essential oils, explains how molecules form in plants and how they effect the body and mind. The final chapter chapter four, the energetics of essential oils, describes the energetic effects oils have on the environment and people. CHAPTER ONE, THE SPIRITUALITY OF AROMATHERAPY Since the begining of time, spirituality and religions main focus has been to make everybody get along, in other words, make everybody work together as if part of a larger organism. To do this we need to regard everything in equal importance, not giving too much value to whatever is closest to you, and wanting to destroy what is harder to understand; otherwise known as holistic thinking as opposed to dualistic thinking. The first step in having a holistic viewpoint is the beleif in God. That everything works together, came from the same source, are different manifestations of the same thing; so therefore even the smallest bit of everything has all the the eternal qualities of God. Holistic mantras to live by are the ancient Biblical quotes, 'As above, so below,' and 'God made man in his own image'. Another good visualization to use in contemplating holistic reality is of fractal patterning: The coast line as seen from space has the same basic jagged and wavy structure as it does when seen from just a few feet away; and everyone knows the universality of the spherical shape, from atoms to stars. These are just a few of the many examples. It all came from the same source- In acknowledging the 'as above, so below' idea, it is clear to me there is a central source from which we all came and operate from. If every organizm has a central nervous system or brain, from which all the comands originate; from insects to humans, and cars (the driver), to computers (the hard drive), and from cells (the nucleus), to galaxies (nucleus). Then there must therefore me a nucleus to all of reality that is concious and all encompasing, being the source to all the tentricals coming out of it like branches from a tree, making everything built of the same structure with equal validity, and different jobs to perform for the growth of the whole. It all works together- It is important to realize the universe works together to realize the holism of the universe, otherwise we would through vital components away thinking they have no use just because we haven't taken the time to understand them; thus severing the body like cutting an arm off. To experience this reality we should note how gravity works. Stars in other parts of the galaxy seem far off and separate from us, yet they all dance together influencing one another according to mass; indicating the presence of an invisible unity. Another proven invisible unity is dark matter, the remaining %90 of the universe that we can't detect with any instruments, yet has 9/10 of the gravitational influence. This is thought by modern scientists to be left over primary energy particles from the big bang, having no known influence on us other than gravity. There are also the photons, neutrinos, and other tiny particles traveling in a myriad of waves interacting with us in the form of light and radio waves, and traveling out into the cosmos, connecting us even to the voyager space craft that is almost outside of our solar system. Moral of the story: The whole universe is connected even though we can't see it or understand it just yet. After realizing the symbiotic nature of the universe in a macrocosmic way, we will recognize the same principles on earth. How the great web of life in the rain forests work off of one another, how the intricate global econocimal system operates with each person performing a job for the whole, from dishwashers to heads of state. As these relationships the plant and human worlds are symbiotic within thier own kingdoms, they also interelate with each other. Us living getting plants oxygen the them getting our carbon dioxide, we eat them and they eat us when we die. As plants and humans live in the same environment, the two life forms fight the same kinds of bacteria, and all of this teamwork takes millions of years to come to fruition and be perfected. Making the presence of oils in various plants tried and true in the job it performs for itself, and for humans. In looking at the universe in a holistic way, it makes perfect sense for plants oils to help us. We eat them, we experience life with them both energetically and physically, so using their oils naturally is part of the whole equation; and this is why we have used their oils for our health for millinium. The historical reasons for the need for holistic thought as opposed to dualistic thought. Since the beginning of recorded history, it was the tribes who saw the similarities of each other, and regarded the benefits of every person and put them to their proper use, who were the ones that turned into great empires by establishing trade ruites and inventing new ways to learn and grow. And it was the tribes who killed strangers, thinking they were something seperate and bad, that were anihilated by their neighbors. This is the reason U.S.A. is to succesful today, because we are the great melting pot, incorporating all of the worlds technology. But it is also clear that our countries sceptical veiw on undoctored medicine from plants, and overuse of mad made chemicals like nutra sweet has caused health problems like cancer. And the over dependance on fossil fuels instead of environmentaly friendly substances that hurt the environment are caused by greed, which in turn is caused by the ignorance of the world family; thinking what other people and life forms feel has no effect on me. This idea is caused by a non beleif in God, and ignorance in the conectedness of everything. So naturally, when you ingore the interconectedness of the world, you will be blind to the root cause of a specific problem like a cold, and perscribe a recently man made chemicals to releive symptoms, instead of using natural time tested remedies as a lifestyle to prevent the causes. Seeing the miracle of the planet, it is natural to assume we are supposed to be healthy, so then it is natural to assume we should all have easy access to the remedies that keep us healthy; instead of having to pay millionairs exhortatant prices for unhealthy man made band aids whose sources destroy what took so long for us to have. Destroying whole forests for one drug like penecilin, and wasting the rest of it, is along the same lines as killing thousands of Buffalo just for the fur, and leaving the rest to rot and cause disease until there are no more. CHAPTER TWO, ASTRO AND QUANTUM PHYSICS This chapter will describe the sheer vastness of the universe and amazing microsity of what we are made of, and how we are made. The big bang happened 13 Billion years ago, happened 13 Billion years ago, with the entire universe originating from a point with no size. As the pure energy expanded and separated the duality that our world knows, protons and electrons, formed after four minutes creating the hydrogen and helium nuclei formed, and after 300,000 years hydrogen and helium atoms formed. These used gravity to clump into nebulae, and then to stars. As gravity increases exponentially as objects get closer, and the mass of stars is so great, the negative force that keeps the electron sheilds away from each other were overcome and the nuclie fused, creating all the elements up to iron. In supergiants, usually 100-200 times the size of the sun, all the electron shells collapse and the nucleuses crash into each other, and in the tumult all the other elements are formed and thrown into space in a supernova, to later accumulate and become planets. There are 100 billion galaxies visible, and the Milky Way is an average disc shaped galaxy, of which %30 in the universe are. %60 are eliptical galaxies, and %10 irregular galaxies. There are 10 billion visible stars in the Milky Way, which is how many drops of water are in an olympic swimming pool (about half of these have planet systems like our suns); and there are 90 Billion more dark stars like black holes and brown dwarfs. If the galaxy was the size of America, stars woul be almost invisible specks 200 meters apart and the solar system would be two centimeters accross. Light travels 186,000 miles a second and takes 8.2 seconds to reach earth from the sun, 10(12) photons hit a pinhead per second. The galaxy is one hundred light years accross, and 13,000 light years thick, and we are 30,000 light years from the center which is a black hole millions of times the size of the sun. It is 2.5 million light years to the nearest galaxy, Andromeda, which is 1.3 times larger than the Milky Way and moving toward us, unlike most other galaxies which move away at 600 km a second. If the Sun were a beach ball 70 cm accross, the eath is 75 meters away the size of a pea, the Moon, 81 times smaller than the Earth is 15.5 cm away, Mercury is 30 meters away the size of a pinhead, Jupiter is 400 meters away the size of a tennis ball, Uranus is the size of a time 1.5 km away, and Pluto is a speck 18 km away. We are about half way between the size of an atom and the universe. There are 45 billion billion (4.5 X 10(19) molecules of air in a cubic centimeter at zero degrees celcius, traveling 461 miles per second, having 3.5 billion collisions per second. Caesium is the biggest atom at .0000005 mm accross, taking 10 million to stretch accross the serated edge of a postage stamp. The nucleus is one millionth of one billionth the size of the atom, or a tennis ball inside a football stadium. CHAPTER THREE, THE CHEMISTRY OF ESSENTIAL OILS Chemestry is the reactions of the X# known elements with each other. Hydrogen is the first element with one proton and one electron, although there is a Hydrogen with one proton, one neutron, and one electron, doubling the atomic weight, but not influencing the chemical properties, because they are determined by the number of electrons there are in the outer shell. The second element is Helium with two protons and two electrons. Lithium is the third, followed by Beryllium, Boron, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Fluorine, Neon, Sodium, Magnesium, Aluminum, Silicon, Phosphorus, Sulphur, Chlorine, Argon, and so on. Elements attach to each other by sharing electrons to complete their outer shell, therefore, certain elements only react with the other elements that have the right amount of electrons to share. This is why two Hydrogens bond well with one Oxygen; Oxygen with its 8 electrons, six in its second shell, needing two more, making water. It is the first few elements that are the most important in our lifes because they are the most plentiful on earth and in the cosmos because they are produced first, and my the most number of stars. There are two electrons in the inner shell, and eight in each succeeding shell, so with each succeeding shell created, the atom gets larger, making it more inert because of its weight, keeping it in the Earth, and size, keeping the elements that cling to it away from being able to react with each other. There are other elements called inert elements, they are called inert because their outer shells are complete, not allowing them to share electrons with other elements. Helium is the first inert gas, followed Neon, then Argon eight electrons later, and so on. The first X# of elements are gases because they have atomic weights light enough to fly around, when they get heavier they turn to liquids, and then solids. When elements bond with each other they become molecules. Molecules like aire are light enough to be a gas, and water with an atomic weight of X# makes it a liquid, and most molecules are heavy enough to be solid. Anything alive is carbon based, because it is the smallest element that has the most symetrical amount of electron bonds to offer, 4. Being the sixth element, it has two electrons in the inner shell, and four in the second shell, allowing it to pair with nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen, in four directions; making all sorts of shapes like protiens (solids), oils (liquids), carbohydrades (solids), and so on. Oils are carbon based liquids. Some are heavy oils like the kind you put in your car, and others are lighter, called aromatic oils. It is the aromatic oils that are used in aromatherapy, because they are small enough to penetrate the body, and light enough to fly through the air and enter the olfactory system. Some oils come from whales to help anchor fragrances, but most of the essential oils come from plants. Oils mainly come from leaves and flowers, but also from roots, bark, the center of the tree, called the heartwood, and the sap. Different oils can come from different parts of the same plant. s dark matter, the remaining %99th any instruments, yet has %99 Essential oils are made mostly made of Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen, with some having Nitrogen and Sulphur. The way these elements are organized in molecules to form certain chemtypes, and the percentage of the different chemtypes in the essential oil determines its smell and properties. The molecular weight of the essential oil is how many protons and neutrons are in the total molecule, most essential oils have a molecular weight of 100-300. Essential oil molecules are made with a Carbon skeleton of six carbons, called a benzene ring, with Oxygen, and Hydrogen attached, called Hydrocarbons. There are unsaturated and saturated hydrocarbons. Saturated Hydrocarbons Carbon atoms are surrounded by four Hydrogens, therefore completing their valency shells, called Alkanes. These include Methane, with one carbon, to Ethane, with two, to Propane, butane, Pentane, Hexane, Heptane, Octane, Nonane, Decane, Undecane, to Dodecane, with ten Carbons. Then there are unsaturated Hydrocarbons, which fill their valency shells up by double bonding with each other, called Alkenes. Alkenes, because of their stronger double bonds, are less reactive to the environment. The unsaturated Hydrocarbon chains range from Ethene, with two carbons, to Propene, and so on. These molecules grow and branch out in all sorts of geometrical shapes like three dimensional triangles and pentograms; each influencing their reactive properties differently, and having their own names like Methylpentene and Dimethylhexane. Molecules with a lot of Hydrogens attached to their ends are very acidic, and molecules with Oxygen and Hydrogens are basic. Most essential oils are made of a ring of six Carbons surrounded by six Hydrogens, called a Benzene ring. As the elements that surround these benzene rings change, so do the names. The main groups of molecules are as follows: Phenol is a Benzene ring with an Oxygen replacing one of the Hydrogens, with another Hydrogen on the other side, giving it an open valency shell and making it reactive. Alcohol molecules are more complex structures with Oxygen and Hydrogen attached to the side. Aldehydes are Benzene rings with a Carbon double bonded to an Oxygen and single bonded to a Hydrogen, Ketones are Carbon atoms double bonded to Oxygen atoms. Carboxylic acids are Carbons double bonded to an Oxygen on one end and and Oxygen attached to a Hydrogen on the other, Esters are Carbons double bonded to an Oxygen on one side and single bonded to an Oxygen on the other. Lactones are Carbon atoms double bonded to an Oxygen on one side and single bonded to an Oxygen on the other. Ethers have Oxygens attached to the side. Acetals have a Carbon with two Oxygens and a Hydrogen attached. Amines have a Nitrogen and two Hydrogens. Nitriles have a Carbon triple bonded to a Nitrogen, and there are Sulphur-containing constituents that have lone sulphur atoms atached at various places in the Benzine ring or along a chain. The configuration of the molecules determines how reactive they are to the environment. For example, oils containing a lot of Oxygen will oxydize things, and oils with a lot of Terpenes in them will smell good because of the complex way the Carbons and Hydrogens can grow off the Benzene ring, becoming large enough for our olfactory cells to detect. THE ENERGY OF ESSENTIAL OILS As you can tell there are all sorts of ways the Hydrogens and Oxygens, Sometimes including Nitrogen and Sulfur, can combine and form molecules to fly through the air. With molecular weights only in the hundreds you can imagine how small the molecules are. As you recall, air molecules, which are composed of a mixture of Nitogen2 (78.08%), Oxygen2 (20.94%), Argon (.934%), CO2 (.03%), Neon (.0018%), Drypton (.0001%), Xenon (.000009%), Rhenium (6X10(-18)%), travel through space at 461 miles a second at zero degrees celcius; so also the molecules of the various essential oil constituents vibrate through the air at extremely fast rates as well. The larger the molecules, the slower the vibration rate, but more steady, and the lighter the molecules, the faster the vibration rate. The molecules also have varying electrical charges to them as demonstrated by the Hydrogen bond. The Hydrogen bond is caused by..... THE Aromatherapy Chapter one, The S Aromatherapy hopefully dissolvingsecularistally Chapter two, Astro and Quantum Phyper Sdependence environmentally Other oils with a lot of alcohols in them have a lot of hydrogens and oxygens to react with various inflammations and dissolve them. Not only do oils offer nutritional benefit to the body by application to the skin, but they give ancient knowledge to the most primitive part of the brain, from when we were reptiles many years ago. We have lived with these plants for a long time, and have a time tested response to all of their chemical constituents, thereby controlling everything from our mood to our subconscious thoughts about survival. With 70,000 olfactory cells in our noses which connect directly to our brain, unlike any of our other senses, smell is the most mystical and basic of our senses; bringing us back to the energy of the earth in the most spiritual way. When you send these special, ancient, intricate messages to the brain, the brain in turn sends corresponding messages to the rest of the body. Aromas from plants are not the only ones we use to influence our brains. We also use fragrances from the Musk deer as an aphrodisiac and energizer in the same way the deer does, and oils derived from whale fat, and digestive chemicals used to dissolve squid skulls which we use an a relaxant. KryptonCelsius Hydrogen bond is caused by the fact that the Oxygen atom is so much bigger than the Hydrogen atom because it has two electron shells instead of one. Because of this the electron shell that the three bonded atoms share is much closer to the nucleus of the Oxygen atom, and pulled away from the nucleus of the Hydrogen atoms. This gives the outer shell of the Oxygen atom a slight negative charge, and the shells of the Hydrogen's a slight positive charge, it is these slight charge differences that attract the Hydrogens of one H2O molecule to the Oxygens of the other; in effect loosely holding the molecules together to make a liquid. The Hydrogen bond doesn't work with Carbon dioxide because both Carbon and Oxygen have two electron shells, making them roughly the same size. After realizing how Hydrogen bonds work, it is safe to assume that there are other energetic activities similar to this happening at a much more subtler scale with the other essential oil molecules; contributing to their frequency rate in the air once they have evaporated. These essential oil induced aromatic frequencies obviously effect the frequency of the air molecules, which in turn must influence the frequency of the auras of living things standing nearby. People who have meditated or have a perceptive mind know the difference in feeling between low and high vibration auras. When your are at a low vibration, energy gets stuck in your field and you feel like you are carrying a cloud around with you, when you have a high vibration, low vibrations which feel bad get kicked out. Low vibration energy feels bad because the slowness of their vibrations cause the other vibrations to slow down, just like cold water making hot water cooler. Your energy field needs to be charged for optimum health, so your psychic and pranic energy, your life force, can move through as easily, just as the atmosphere needs to be charged before it can create lightning. Not only does the vibration of the aromatic essential oils effect your energy field in a third dimensional way, but as evidenced from krylion photography, in a more difficult to explain hyper dimensional way. Halos have been seen surrounding leaves after they have been severed, and even atoms. Seeing how essential oils have energy fields as well, not only on an atomic level, but a life force level as shown in the pictures of leaves; it is logical to assume this subtle energy effects the corresponding subtle energy surrounding your body. As plants and humans live symbolically in the earth in this dimension, they obviously do in the other dimensions. All oils have different vibrations, some corresponding to the high frequency of your crown chakra, and others to the more steady energy of various lower chakras. If you want to influence your energy field by something other than your own mind or hands, the best way is with essential oils. We all have different frequencies, so we all can benefit from different oils that suit us personally. A good analogy to use is with the guitar strings. When two guitars are tuned the same, and you pluck the cord of one, the corresponding cord of the other will begin to vibrate. THE FUTURE OF AROMATHERAPY The future is wide open in Aromatherapy because we are just now beginning to understand the various sciences that relate to it, like quantum physics, chemistry, vibration medicine and so on. Now we only use about %10 of our brain, imagine what kind of communication we could make with the plant kingdom when we use the %100 we are designed to use. I read a book that said people in a planet in Sirius's orbit use a special plant to activate their brains to remind them of their past lives, and the past lives of their family members. In another book written by the people from Arcturus's system, they said smelling Rose is the best way to imagine what love is, which they say is the frequency of the next dimension. This phenomenon is in some way caused by the chemical constituents in the oils, and it will be an exciting time for me when we are able to thoroughly scientifically explain these things. But as of now scientists don't even believe in things as obvious as extraterestials, or have the gumption to acknowledge the harmful effects of our carcinogenic environment; which shows just how much in the infant stages we are in Aromatherapy and the other ancient medicines. When we open our minds and notice the peaceful effects forests have on us is caused by the auras of the trees and their aromatic oils, we will begin bringing their life force into our homes and communities, bringing new life and vitality to what we now so pessimistically call the concrete jungle. It doesnÕt have to be that way, all we have to do is see the world holistically instead of as a separate force to be defeated and feared. And the best way to reunite with the natural world, is to reunite with our closest relatives who we have been killing too much of recently, the plants and animals. describing cosmology, and work chemistry of essential oils.

CONCLUSION Aromatherapy is a holistic art, so unfortunately if you are going to convince a skeptic about the benefits of aromatherapy, it is necesary to remind them what holism is in the first place. If someone is skeptical of the vibrational influence of oils, remind them of our comunication with the astronauts via radio waves, and maybe they will open their minds a little. Note the graph of our chemical interchanges: 6CO(2) + 6H(2)0 -- C(6)H(12)O(6) + 6O(2) The process of creating essential oils all starts with the photosynthesis formula: + sun light As we can see the twelve molecules of carbon dioxide and water, six each; undergo a metamorphosis when sun light hits them. The photons from the sun get trapped in the electron clouds and increase their energy and vibration until they rearange in glucose molecules, which are chains of six carbons surrounded by twelve hydrogens and six oxygens; with twelve oxygen atoms in the form of six two-oxygen molecules as a by product. The way these glucose sugar chains are arranged determines whether it is sucrose, dextrose, etc.. The more complex sugar chains are hydrocarbates, useful to us because they provide a lot of energy as the carbon chains are dismantled with the aid of the oxygen we breath, thus releasing the photons that formed the sugar and providing energy for our bodies. The by product is the carbon dioxide we exhale which aids the photosynthesis of more plants. This give and take relationship between us and plants is another phenomenon of the eternal balancing act nature makes from photons and electrons to the gravity and expansion of the universe; as all of these forces cancel each other out, the overall energy of the universe is zero. Esoterically meaning the true influencing factor in the workings of the universe lies in the subtler energy levels of the mind. Essential oils and the brain Essential oils get to the brain via two ways, skin and nose. By the nose, the molecules attach to the thousands of sensors that are shaped to revieve certain chemicals. When those chemicals attach themselves to the receptors like the right puzzle peice, it activates a neuron which sends a message to the brain explaining what it is and how much of it. By the skin, because the essential oils are so basic and small, being simple molecules, they can find their way into the body along the same routes that oxygen takes; down the sweat ducts, blood vessels, and seeping through fat. Once in the blood stream, they get depostited when they are needed, when they fall into a nitch that was waiting for them.
