How Does Essential Oil Healing Work
Essential oils create waves which cause the brain to release neurotransmitters like serotonin, which connect our nervous systems and the rest of our body to provide a feeling of relief. Our sense of smell is received by the amygdala, an organ in the brain that transmits waves of visceral recognition directly to the autonomic nervous system that regulates a variety process that takes place without conscious effort, which stores memories associated with the smell in the cells of our body.
Science tells us that everything is energy; subtle bioenergy that flows through everything in the universe. The use of essential oils encourage your body to regenerate damaged cells, increase your immune defense to viruses, and sustain energy vitality.
We can now measure the effect of essential oils measure on the body using frequency. Scientists tell us that the human body’s vibratory range is between 62 and 68 MHz. The human body will start to change when the frequency drops below 62MHz. This is where we begin to see colds, flu, and diseases appear. Combining this knowledge with the frequency an essential oil provides, we can adequately re-tune the body to its original frequency.
As magnets use energy to attract or resist, healing stones crystals use energy in the same way. When you place individual crystals over certain parts of your body, your energy transforms, vibrates, pulses, moves, and shifts following the properties and energetic signature of the gemstone.
