Evidence the Essential Oils Work?

Is there REALLY any evidence that essential oils can help you heal?

I always think it’s funny when we hear the “experts” say there is no scientific evidence that essential oils can help you, therefore they should not be used.
Now, besides my own personal experience which is proof enough for me…and many others I have been Blessed to help, the TRUTH is that there IS “scientific evidence” all around us…but do we know where to look?
Next time your doctor tries to dissuade you from using essential oils in your healing ask them if they know about this?
The National Library of Medicine which is the end all be all when it comes to “medicine” ion this county boasts 11388 studies and beneficial uses for essential oils at the time of this printing.  See here:

Let’s go a little further here:  They want you to believe that chemo and radiation are the only forms of CURE for cancer, yet they have 486 published studies of their effectiveness at the time of this printing!
See for yourself! 🙂

My opinion is that there are in fact MANY “cures” for cancer and other health related issues.  The key is to find what works for you that is easily implementable in your daily routine!

What better way to heal than pampering yourself?  🙂

I personally have experienced essential oils being a major factor in healing cancer, gangrene, scabies, tetanus, athletes food, candida, respiratory issues and much more!  🙂

Here are just a few sightings you will find if you check out the National Library of Medicine:

“Frankincense oil derived from Boswellia carteri induces tumor cell specific cytotoxicity.

CONCLUSION:
Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Microarray and bioinformatics analysis proposed multiple pathways that can be activated by frankincense oil to induce bladder cancer cell death. Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment.”

Abstract

The essential oil from Cedrelopsis grevei leaves, an aromatic and medicinal plant from Madagascar, is widely used in folk medicine. Essential oil was characterized by GC-MS and quantified by GC-FID. Sixty-four components were identified. The major constituents were: (E)-β-farnesene (27.61%), δ-cadinene (14.48%), α-copaene (7.65%) and β-elemene (6.96%). The essential oil contained a complex mixture consisting mainly sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (83.42%) and generally sesquiterpenes (98.91%). The essential oil was tested cytotoxic (on human breast cancer cells MCF-7), antimalarial (Plasmodium falciparum), antiinflammatory and antioxidant (ABTS and DPPH assays) activities. C. grevei essential oil was active against MCF-7 cell lines (IC50=21.5 mg/L), against P. falciparum, (IC50=17.5mg/L) and antiinflammatory (IC50=21.33 mg/L). The essential oil exhibited poor antioxidant activity against DPPH (IC50>1000 mg/L) and ABTS (IC50=110 mg/L) assays. A bibliographical review was carried out of all essential oils identified and tested with respect to antiplasmodial, anticancer and antiinflammatory activities. The aim was to establish correlations between the identified compounds and their biological activities (antiplasmodial, anticancer and antiinflammatory). According to the obtained correlations, 1,4-cadinadiene (R(2)=0.61) presented a higher relationship with antimalarial activity. However, only (Z)-β-farnesene (R(2)=0.73) showed a significant correlation for anticancer activity.”

“Frankincense essential oil prepared from hydrodistillation of Boswellia sacra gum resins induces human pancreatic cancer cell death in cultures and in a xenograft murine model. CONCLUSION:

All fractions of frankincense essential oil from Boswellia sacra are capable of suppressing viability and inducing apoptosis of a panel of human pancreatic cancer cell lines. Potency of essential oil-suppressed tumor cell viability may be associated with the greater abundance of high molecular weight compounds in Fractions III and IV. Although chemical component(s) responsible for tumor cell cytotoxicity remains undefined, crude essential oil prepared from hydrodistillation of Boswellia sacra gum resins might be a useful alternative therapeutic agent for treating patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma, an aggressive cancer with poor prognosis.”

“D-limonene rich volatile oil from blood oranges inhibits angiogenesis, metastasis and cell death in human colon cancer cells. SIGNIFICANCE:

The results of this study provide persuasive evidence of the apoptotic and anti-angiogenesis potential of BVOE in colon cancer cells. The extent of induction of apoptosis and inhibition of angiogenesis suggest that BVOE may offer great potential for prevention of cancer and may be appropriate for further studies.”

So as you can see, even main stream medicine knows about the healing power of Mother Nature…please check out these links and continue your search knowing the Mother Nature CAN heal…and with Her lovely scents, it’s much more fun that chemo, radiation or any type of drugging or surgery! 🙂

This post was written in 2012. There have been hundreds if not thousands more studies since. I will be posting many of them here so check back often!

Happy Healing! <3
