What are Essential Oils... they are odorous pure plant essences and each one is extracted from a single botanical source via a number of different methods.

Almost all essential oils are antiseptic and antibacterial, antiviral or antifungal.

Aromatherapy Oils are categorized by their smell, into a class of notes, high, middle or low and should be mixed with the same note, so the aromas do not clash and overpower each other.

Some oils will stimulate and regenerate while others will sedate and calm the mind and body.

What are Essential Oils... the are pure and therefor they shouldn't be used undiluted on the skin as they may cause irritation, I would recommend that you use cold pressed vegetable oils such as almond, sunflower and walnut as a carrier.

Aromatherapy oils are diverse and some have various healing properties.

Lavender for instance has over 70 different healing properties. It can be used to help children sleep, as it relaxes the mind and has a calming effect. It can bring down temperatures, has cell rejuvenating properties, helps with cuts and burns, and smells wonderful.

The three Essential Oils you cannot do without . . .


In my Own Your Health Course I teach you exactly how to use these oils for self-healing or even healing others.

Everybody should keep lavender, tea-tree and peppermint oil in their home, as you can use them for so many things.

  • Lavender - is an anti-bacterial, as well as a calmative, you can also put a drop of lavender oil on the back of your dog's neck, and brush it in to keep the fleas away..
  • Tea-tree - can be used as an anti-septic.
  • Peppermint - is good for clearing the passages when you have a cold or if you suffer from sinusitis. Peppermint is excellent for cuts, and drawing the heat out of a wound or sprain.

NB: Do not use homeopathic medication in conjunction with peppermint oil, as it takes away the effectiveness of the homeopathic medication.

  • Works with emotions (for balance and well-being)
  • Spiritual Guidance
  • Purification of Environment
  • Aid in boosting immune, respiratory, circulatory systems

What are Essential Oils Cautions...

  • Always seek professional help with serious health problems
  • Do NOT apply directly to skin (unless oil has been specified as safe or has been diluted in carrier oil
  • Do NOT take internally
  • Do NOT use if pregnant, nursing, on children under age 2, or with serious health problems without consulting a professional
  • More is NOT Better


  • Instead of using a roll-on deodorant, an oil mixture can be made up, so as not to clog pores and the lymph nodes, which clean the body.
  • Instead of a cream-based moisturizer, an oil blend of your favorite fragrances can be made up in a carrier oil for deep and natural moisterization.
  • Soak in the bath with lavender oil, as it has everything in it and with so many properties. For a woman, add sandalwood, for men, add ylang ylang.
