Your Respiratory System Can be Healthier
With Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils

Therapeutic-grade essential oils benefit your respiratory system and your entire body in many ways by enhancing the natural functions of your body. That's because, unlike drugs, essential oils don't kill off the beneficial and necessary flora in the intestines. Nor do they make you drowsy or tired. Nor do they present a problem to your liver or kidneys, or put harsh chemicals into your bloodstream.

Instead, they're immune enhancing and support the body's natural defenses. They truly help the body heal itself by benefiting every cell, organ and system.

Essential oils act in ways science is only now beginning to understand. Because of their unique structure, they are able to penetrate the cell membranes or your respiratory system — bringing vital oxygenating molecules and nutrients in, while moving toxins out. They support not only the respiratory system, but the immune, respiratory, circulatory, endocrine, digestive, and nervous systems.

The truth is, antibiotics are becoming increasingly ineffective in dealing with bacteria these days. If you have any doubts, read the Washington Post article, "Bacteria More Resistant To Antibiotics" And "Antibiotic Ineffectiveness"

If we can't count on antibiotics, what can we do?

Common sense tells us we need to make sure our immune system remains strong and able to fight off potential dangers. Therapeutic-grade essential oils can be a big help in accomplishing this for our respiratory system and entire body.

Research Shows the Effectiveness of Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils

Preliminary research at Brigham Young University recently found that the minimum inhibitory concentration of therapeutic-grade essential oils of melissa and Turkish oregano is extremely high. This means that it takes very little essential oil to accomplish a lot — and that the essential oil is highly effective.

In fact, research published by The Journal of the American Pharmaceutical Association states that the vapors of 133 essential oils were screened in vitro or antibacterial activity against six test organisms that commonly infect respiratory systems: Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Streptococcus fecalis, Salmonella typhosa, and Mycobacterium avium. Results show that the essential oils of thyme, cinnamon, origanum (oregano) produced the largest zones of inhibition on all test organisms.

And, the University of Georgia reports that of 50 plant essential oils examined by Deans and Richie (1987), thyme oil was the most inhibitory against 25 genera of bacteria. In addition, it was found that Eugenol, a major constituent of clove oil, possesses significant cleansing activity. Farabood et. al. reported that a rosemary spice extract substantially inhibited the growth of S. typhimurium and Staph. aureus.

Note what Dr. Andrew Weil states:

"I expect that essential oils may someday prove a vital weapon in the fight against strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Lavender, thyme and tea-tree oils have been used for centuries as antiseptics; their chemical compounds appear to kill microbes on contact."

"Aromatherapy Offers Intriguing Possibilities" from
Dr. Andrew Weil's Self Healing, Oct, l996, Watertown, MA

Essential oils also work with the body to promote natural healing by stimulating and reinforcing the body's own mechanisms.

"Essential oils include muscle relaxants, digestive tonics, circulatory stimulants and hormone precursors. Many repair injured cells; others carry away metabolic waste. In addition, a number of essential oils enhance immunity, working with the body to heal itself. They're capable of stimulating the production of phagocytes (white blood cells that attack invaders). And some are anti-toxic. Many essential oils have been proven effective against fungi and yeast, parasites and viruses. Others fight infection with amazing effectiveness, killing bacteria by disrupting their life cycle. And unlike conventional antibiotic drugs, essential oils are "probiotic": they kill pathogenic bacteria, but tend to leave beneficial bacteria intact. Finally, bacteria typically do not acquire resistance to essential oils, as they so often do to antibiotic drugs."

The Power Behind Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils

High quality essential oils are extremely concentrated. When extracted at low temperature over many hours (as Young Living Essential Oils are), they contain virtually all of the plant's healing nutrients, oxygenating molecules, amino acid precursors, coenzyme A factors, trace minerals, enzymes, vitamins, hormones and more. Because essential oils are so highly concentrated, they can be many, many times more potent than the herbs or plants from which they were derived.

"...Aromatherapy (essential oils) is one of the most powerful yet safe healing modalities we have today. It should be considered much more in healing."

- Terry Friedmann, M.D.
Freedom Through Health, Harvest, (1993), Scottsdale, AZ

Amazing as it may seem, research shows that essential oils penetrate every single cell of the body within 20 minutes — no matter where the oil is applied! That means a quick swipe on the wrists or on the feet is enough to reach every part of your body. A quick swipe on the chest can reach the entire respiratory system in a matter of minutes.

The Importance of Therapeutic-Grade Certification

But be advised that in order to receive the benefits discussed above, the oils used must be therapeutic-grade. The therapeutic-grade classification exceeds Grade A, and stands in a class by itself. Most essential oils sold in the U.S. today are Grade C and D, but conceal this by not being properly labeled. All Young Living Essential Oils have been carefully monitored and bear the AFNOR/ISO or EC AFNOR therapeutic-grade certification stamped on the label.

Unknown to the general public, many essential oils in the United States today are heavily diluted and adulterated. But diluted and adulterated oils have no therapeutic qualities. They can't help your body heal or help you feel better. In many cases, they do more harm than good.

Only real therapeutic-grade essential oils have the unique properties it takes to help restore health and vitality. Only real therapeutic-grade essential oils kill viruses, fungi, and bacteria, on contact. Only real therapeutic-grade essential oils bring oxygen to each cell because they have the unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the blood and tissues, benefiting every cell, organ and system.

Most oils in the U.S. are imported from France or other countries, where they are heavily thinned and adulterated.

During the last several years, according to the Lavender Growers Association, France has been exporting 100 times more Lavender oil than is actually grown in France. How can this be possible? Where could the extra oil be coming from? Obviously, only from being heavily thinned and diluted.

Of the few companies that do distill their own oils, most of them transport the herbs or plant material a considerable distance before the distillation. What does this mean to the oil? It means many of the volatile (and most valuable) oils evaporate away before the distillation has even started! And to add insult to injury, they are then "cooked" at high temperatures for short periods of time - not allowing the subtler, more therapeutic elements to ever surface.

Young Living Essential Oils are grow completely organically, harvested at their peak, and distilled right there on the farm at low temperatures for long periods of time. Only Young Living Essential Oils are checked by five (yes, that's right — five) independent laboratories by state-of-the-art analysis before they are allowed to be sold (because results of in-house, supplier-based labs can easily be distorted for self-serving ends).

Young Living cultivates over 2,000 acres of farmland in Idaho and Utah. They take great pains to control every phase of organic herb production in many ways:

Uncompromising Standards Of Quality

First of all, they select only the best species. Then, they grow them on land that has never been contaminated by chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides. They irrigate the land with pure mountain water. And because they know that plants lacking minerals and nutrients yield oils low in therapeutic value, they use an advanced mix of enzymes, trace minerals and organic biosolids to build and maintain the soil.

Because distillation at Young Living is part of the farm where the herbs are grown, they are distilled fresh. REALLY fresh! The plants are monitored constantly for the optimal time of day for cutting to get the most therapeutic results! For example, German chamomile must be harvested in the late afternoon to maximize levels of azulene and bisobolol in the oil. Other plants need to be harvested in the early morning or late at night. Young Living makes sure that each crop is harvested at it's peak and that distillation begins immediately.

Young Living takes extraordinary pains to preserve all of the fragile chemical constituents in their essential oils. Plants are steam distilled in small batches for extended periods using special low-pressure, low-heat vertical steam technology developed by Dr. Gary Young. No solvents or synthetic chemicals of any kind are used or added. Moreover, the cookers are constructed from costly stainless steel alloys to minimize the possibility of the essential oil being chemically altered by more reactive metals, such as aluminum, steel, or copper. The results are therapeutic-grade (beyond grade A) masterpieces with unsurpassed healing properties.

Essential oils are rich tapestries of numerous chemical components, some of which (even in small quantities) contribute important therapeutic benefits., For example, Cypress requires 24 hours of distillation at 245 degrees F and 5 pounds of pressure to extract all of its active ingredients. If distillation is shortened by only two hours, 18 to 20 of its chemical constituents will be missing. But, in order to cut costs, many processors increase pressure and heat -- and cut distillation times drastically. Even though this kind of oil is technically considered pure, it may only contain a fraction of its possible complex chemistry and therapeutic value.

Young Living Essential Oils routinely contain up to ten times higher levels of therapeutic elements than the industry standard. You can be sure you are buying the purest and most powerful oil, with the highest therapeutic value when you buy Young Living.

Best Ways To Use The Oils

There are several ways to take advantage of the beneficial properties of essential oils. One way is by simply applying the oils directly to your body, and sometimes, taking a drop or two internally. Best Ways To Use The Oils For The Respiratory System One of the best ways to harness the power of essential oils for the respiratory system is by diffusing the oil (i.e., breaking it up into a fine mist) and breathing it in (more on that below).

Fast Respiratory System Help — Diffusing Essential Oils

An excellent way to use essential oils for the respiratory system is by diffusing the them into the air and breathing them in. In fact, diffusing essential oils has historically been one of the most effective ways to purify the air and benefit the respiratory system. That's because diffusing allows the oils to bring their oxygenating qualities further into the lungs and allows the essential oils to stay in the air for a longer period of time.

Research at Weber State University proved that diffusing essential oils kills airborne micro-organisms. It is so effective that many hospitals in England and France diffuse essential oils daily to keep incidences of drug-resistant bacteria low, and to keep the air free from micro-organisms.

The process of diffusing is so effective because it breaks up the oil molecules into micro-fine mist particles, which are able to stay suspended in the air for long periods of time. Not only does this reduce viruses, bacteria, mold and odors in the air, but it also soothes the trachea and lungs. In addition, diffused oils increase the available oxygen in the air and produce negative ions.

Oils To Diffuse For The Respiratory System

Here's a list of the essential oils that are most effective in purifying the air and soothing the air passages and clearing irritated respiratory systems:

. Citrus Fresh (blend)
. ImmuPower (blend)
. Lemon
. Melaleuca alternifolia
. Eucalyptus globulus
. Purification (blend)
. Ravensara
. Rosewood
. Thieves (blend)
