When God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, he didn’t place them in a house. He put them in the middle of a lush garden filled with flowers, trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, and all the scents and smells we associate with such a garden. These aromas come from the essential oils of the plants and are used to communicate amongst themselves, the animal kingdom, and people.
One thing we can learn from the creation story in Genesis is God intended us to live amongst the fragrances emanating from His plant kingdom via essential oils. If His Word says, beloved, I wish above all things thou mayest prosper and be in good health, John 3:2, and Proverbs 21:20 says there is a treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise, then, we can deduce essential oils are one way God provided for us to prosper and be in health.
It has been proven, scientifically, essential oils are healing emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. They are effective when you’re sick and preserve your health when you’re well. I can attest to the effectiveness of essential oils on all these levels and have had the pleasure of using them for 20 years. Whether through inhalation, topical application, ingestion, or a combination thereof, essential oils have kept me and my family in good health.
My daily regimen includes starting the day with several glasses of fresh mountain spring water (we’re blessed with a mountain spring on our property), infused with a few drops of citrus oil. My favorites are Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, and Lime. Citrus oils add a tart flavor, support cellular health, and help maintain a healthy weight. Most days I then combine some oils in my cold water diffuser. Today, fall is in the air enhanced by diffusing the crisp and warm aromas of Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, and Frankincense. Within seconds the molecules of these oils meet the receptors of my olfactory membrane, the smell is identified, sent from the olfactory nerve into the limbic system of the brain where emotional and psychological responses are determined. How many times have you caught a whiff of an old familiar smell that brings you back to a particular time? I love those moments. They’re evidence that aromas indeed affect our emotions.
Next, I brush my teeth with an oil-infused toothpaste such as Thieves Whitening Toothpaste, rub my gums with Frankincense, place a drop of Joy in my belly button, apply Valor to the bottoms of my feet, Harmony to my wrists, Brain Power on my forehead, and I’m good to go! If anything unexpected comes up, I’m confident I have oil in my arsenal for it 🙂
When settling down for the evening, I’ll often have a relaxing hot soak in the tub with Lavender infused Epsom salts. I apply Cypress on my legs for circulation and mix Frankincense and Lavender with ART Intensive Moisturizer, to maintain healthy skin. If I wake up in the night, I always have Lavender nearby for a quick aroma fix to soothe me back to sleep.
As you can see, I don’t have to live in the Garden of Eden to benefit from the healing properties of essential oils. God gave us the plants, their oils, and the brains to figure out how to extricate them and apply them as part of His plan for our health.
