Fragrance, Essential Oils and the Importance to our Be-ing Fragrances are such an important part of our lives. Smells, both good and bad, influence our journey through life and have a strong impact on how we respond to our environment. From the womb, programming of the sense of smell has a significant impact on the quality of life. Smells from our life become programmed into our subconscious mind and set triggers to our memories. This can instill a sense of security and protection or a sense of fear. The emotions of grief, sadness, and regret are linked to the sense of smell.
Fragrances and essential oils have been used to clear space and balance the energy of homes for centuries. Religious texts have touted the uses of essential oils in purification, healing, and embalming rituals. My personal favorite for clearing is a blend of orange oil and frankincense oil. A pure therapeutic grade oil is preferred to a perfume grade because it has the highest frequency of any natural substances.
Cheap blends of perfumed or essential oils don’t seem to work as well as a higher therapeutic grade. Every living thing has an electrical frequency. Measuring in megahertz, Bruce Tainio Technology in Cheney, Washington, developed equipment to measure the biofrequency of humans and foods. He found that a healthy body has a frequency measuring from 62–78 MHz. Disease begins to introduce itself to the body at 58 MHz. However, it was discovered that 100 percent therapeutic-grade essential oils still contained the “life force” of the plant, and measured from 52 MHz to 320 MHz. Clinical studies show that essential oils have the frequency and chemistry to help us maintain an optimal health frequency within our environment. Other studies show that processed food has a frequency of 0 MHz, and fresh produce and herbs varied from 2–27 MHz. These studies show that essential oils have double to triple the frequency of food and herbs.
During these studies, when oils were diffused into a room, clients felt better emotionally. Within seconds of their introduction, the clients became calmer and less anxious with their research environment. In controlled testing, it was found that minor unhealthy substances in food and in the environment lowered the body’s MHz, and recovery time from a minor infraction took up to three days. It was also discovered that negative thoughts lowered the body frequency by 12 MHz, and meditation and prayer increased the measured frequency by 15MHz.
However, these studies were later retracted based on the fact they could not get the same exact readings three times in a row. However, in my speculation, each element energy (feng shui) of the day is different and each person’s energy will change day-to-day making it impossible to get the same results each time. I am in no way a scientist but based upon my experience in feng shui, energy changes each moment in time and nothing ever stays the same. Follow your gut, be your own experiment and see what your results are.
It is imperative to educate yourself on the use of these oils and keep your living space olfactory correct. It is so important to become aware of what fragrances enhance your well-being. Essential oils, aromatherapy, incense, cooking and baking, or familiar smells will enhance the chi of a room. A musty room depresses chi.
I have experimented with oils for the last 20 years and tried all different blends and brands. I have moved away and come back to Young Living essential oils several times. Each time I left, I would have bottles of lesser quality oil in my cupboards. I no longer even venture out; YOUNG LIVING (https://www.youngliving.org/designwisdom) is now my wholehearted oil of choice. Below are few sample recommendations of oils to help support your well-being and clarity of mind and spirit. Other suggestions may be found in my Alchemy of Quantum Mind Feng Shui and Reconnecting your Spirit books.
