Dear Fibro Friends - I've been experimenting with essential oils since 2002 to deal with a myriad of annoying and debilitating problems related to my FMS/CFIDS condition, which I've had since 1982. There is no known "cure" for this disorder, but I have found many essential oils that help me cope and be more functional from day to day. You use them in 3 different ways: apply topically, inhale fragrance, or ingest (put a drop in a glass of water or in food). These are THERAPEUTIC GRADE essential oils - not recreational perfumes! Scroll down to read my personal favorites! - Dominie
Essential Oils work differently from any other natural substance.
Their unique features are that they:
This is why one essential oil can do so many different things for you all at once--physically, emotionally, and mentally--with just a few drops in the air or on your skin.
Here's a picture of how the aroma of essential oils affects us:
The olfactory bulb carries molecules and impulses into the brain area where our emotional memory is stored.
Scent stimulates nerves to fire in the emotional center of the brain, but it also stimulates the master gland to release hormones. Hormones affect the fight/flight response, as well as digestion and heart rate. In this way, essential oils can affect us in many ways all at once, just through their fragrance.
But essential oils also have a complex chemical structure, designed and produced by nature, which makes the use of essential oils uniquely economical! For example, when lavender oil is applied to a wound, over sore muscles, a broken bone, or a burn, it can support the body's natural self-healing processes in all those areas. Or it might stimulate the immune system or balance blood pressure, or relieve a tension headache, or help you go to sleep.
And finally, essential oils can affect us just through their subtle energy. They have a presence that touches us deeply, and can change our feelings and our thoughts in an instant. This you have to experience to believe!
