Aromatherapy and Oils were born out of herbal medicine, a tradition of at least 5,000 years originating in ancient China.
From Egypt to Macedonia, Israel to Italy, Persia to France and eventually the rest of the world, essential oils have a long history and an overachieving caseload.
The ancient Greeks and Romans loved perfumery and essential oils and later discovered they could be used medicinally as well as aromatically.
The chemical constituents in essential oils have been found to have many health benefits from their antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial, properties to their ability to stop headaches, reduce pain, reduce stress, anxiety, promote sleep, and regulate hormones, lower rates of depression, aid in wound care, boost fertility, and hundreds more uses including bug repellant, body lotions and shampoo.
Creating salves, creams and household cleaning recipes can create safe and most effective preventative health measures. When Big Pharma made it an offense to recommend cherries, garlic, carrots, wheat grass, and herbal tea, to remedy or treat maladies, then suddenly any supplement or essential oil was thrown under the bus and the “Free Voice” was accused of prescribing and diagnosing without a license!
So to be sure there is no misunderstanding, this post is a report of historical facts and claims in the public domain including the internet and any statement herein is not to be misconstrued as a prescription or diagnosis.
Men and women were given a gift by our Creator, that big Pharma works daily to steal from us by sending the FDA to regulate our supplements, restrict our use of essential oils, and even force us to get their approval for the making of handmade soap, (Lye and oil) so that Big Pharma can get a “cut” through regulation of our God given Rights!
Genesis 1:19 “I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of the Earth, and every tree, in which is a tree yielding tree; to it shall it be for meat.”
Psalm 104:14 “He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and the herb for the service of man.”
Exodus 30:34 “Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight.” “This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.”
Revelation 22:2 “…and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
Now its time to say that each individual’s body has tolerances and objections to difference outside influences such as foods, allergies, and oils, etc. However there are no hospitalization and deaths attributed vegetables and essential oils. On the other hand Big Pharma advertises continually for us to ask our Doctors for prescription Drugs that have side effects of DEATH, and like sheep to the slaughter we do.
VERY FEW WILL CALL THEIR SENATOR AND CONGRESSPERSON TO OBJECT TO FDA REGULATION OF OILS AND SUPPLEMENTS (vitamins and Minerals.) THAT WAS GIVEN TO US AS A GIFT from the architect of the Universe, and now taken away by 535 men and women that can be paid for their vote under the table.

At a time when a small business is not allowed to sell you raw milk, natural organic vegetables and fruit, (like cherries and carrots) with the suggestion that they could have some protective health benefit, or sell you handmade soap that has no artificial perfumes or harsh man made chemicals because FDA hasn’t approved the bar, the manufacturer or the owner,
then I would expect you to be surprised at this government over-reach of power. History shows that the FDA comes into these businesses like a “drug raid” (full s.w.a.t. attire) and seize all inventory, computers and arrest the owners, (farmers, health food stores, internet shops, and small businesses of every description, putting them out of business on the spot as most don’t have the reserves to restock…

No man or legislature should steal these healthy alternative gifts from us!
