Aromatherapy! So what is it?
Jun 25, 2021

Reading time 2 min.

The definition is by Wikipedia is based on the usage of aromatic materials, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds. It states: “Aromatherapists are people who specialize in the practice of aromatherapy, utilize blends of supposedly therapeutic essential oils that can be used as topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion.”
Notice how it is emphasized by “Essential Oils”

But you see there is one problem here. My opinion is that Aromatherapy is not just the usage of essential oils. There is a much bigger picture here.

If you go back in time, there was no such thing as essential oils. We really did not have the technology to make essential oils as we can today.
What was used was the plants and trees all around us. Parts of the plants were used in teas. Parts were actually done with an oil infusion, using Olive Oil which came from the Olive Tree which grew around their regions. Some like in resins, especially the Frankincense species were burned, oil infused and used in water. And yes so many of the plants and resins were used by ingesting them.

When I studied to become an Aromatherapist, we touched on each plant, but we never really got down and dirty and learned about each one. We learned the chemical make-up of the essential oils that were distilled by using the plants but that is basically it.

But this is a problem because we need to understand each aspect of each plant to really understand these essential oils. We need to learn how the plant "ticks” to be able to use the essential oil medicinally.
Also sometimes the whole plant is better to use than the essential oil, especially for a longer period of time. We are told you cannot use the essential oil for long periods because you may become sensitized to a particular oil. You can use the plant or tree material longer because it is the raw material and is not so concentrated like the essential oil is.

I think an Aromatherpist needs to be well rounded and learn both about herbalism and essential oils. There are times I find in my Hospice practice that essential oils just do not cut it and I find by using a particular frankincense species in a lotion or salve or serum actually works better, it is way gentler. And it is not just the resins, I oil infuse lemon balm which I grow , which helps with muscle pain and stiff joints a lot better than using the Melissa essential oil and less expensive. I also do an oil infusion with the wild mint I grow and it is wonderful for respiratory problems and also muscle aches and sometimes find this much better than using an essential oil blend, depending on the client I am using it for. I make a tincture out of Myrrh to use with mouth problems. I would never think to put a few drops of the essential oil in my mouth because of the concentration of resin in it. But I will use the essential oil in a blend for topical usage for other medicinal uses. See they can go hand in hand.

So this concept that Aromatherapy is just the essential oil to me is bogus. Maybe we need to change the wording to say Aromaherbaltherapy instead or call us "Aromaherbalists" like my colleague Mindy Green who is both a pioneer in Aromatherapy and Herbalism says, or combine the two when trying to explain what this profession is really about. She has presented on the topic of Aromaherbalism.

Ancestral defect meditation

What is ancestral defect, who is effected and how to solve it?
Ancestral defects are stored in our cells and can cause anger, phobia, finical issues, and illnesses. We are actually effected by the sins and mistakes of our ancestors and we are carrying their karmic debts in our DNA.
Are you effected if you experience the followings in your life:
- children in your family suffers from a illness since birth
- children suffer from physical and mental disabilities
- won’t be able to pay off debts
- family always experiencing diseases
- lack of success in all area of works and businesses
- sudden death in the family at early age

Ancestral Healing

Ancestral healing is a powerful method for helping you to clear unwanted baggage from your energy field.

We are all master Creators of our reality. Our beliefs are the seeds that result in our physical world. Unfortunately, many of these seeds were sown when we were babies. Sometimes they are inherited from our parents or ancestors. Sometimes they come from past lives or different dimensions. So, healing is not simply a matter of using positive affirmations. The root has to be cleansed. When it goes, it is lifted from all beings, in all time, and all dimensions.

Ancestral healing does that – often very quickly. Sometimes change is instantaneous and dramatic. Sometimes it takes time, but know that more is more. The more you engage with this energy:

  • the easier it becomes to let go of old things that used to bother you
  • your old triggers melt away. Since you have fewer buttons, you’re more peaceful inside
  • the more ease you have in your day to day life regardless of the chaos outside of you
  • you may feel closer to the light inside of you, others, and Source itself
  • your wants and needs change so that they are more in alignment with your higher calling
  • pain becomes a thing of the past
  • your intuition deepens. You begin to know what is true and what is just a story
