Hello water + forum, Hello to you Solmare. It is good to hear from you!
Water, may I ask you for your help with essential oils once more? I will do my best to help.
This time I have questions regarding their topical rather than internal use.
I have read on this forum and also elsewhere, that when dealing with a skin infection like mine, nothing oily should be put on the skin. - I don't know, if that includes essential oils. As far as my knowledge goes, quite the opposite is the case. Essential oils used topically can cure infections like mine (as people have reported and studies show). You are correct. Essential oils are not 'oily' and can be of benefit when treating skin infection topically.
So I assume, it's more than ok to use essential oils topically for my skin infection. Yes, you can use essential oils topically for a skin infection, however, I don't feel you are truly dealing with a topical/external skin infection. (My opinion only) From your past postings I believe your skin condition is your body being forced to eliminate toxins through the skin, because it is the only way out. I hope you have been doing the internal cleansing (COLON / LIVER). Cleansing the colon/bowel, liver and other organs is the most important thing you NEED to do FIRST and do ENOUGH to truly cleanse. Dr. Schulze said that something like 80% of his patients, no matter what their health issues were, found after cleansing their colon they were no longer sick. Their disease or afflictions were gone.. just by cleaning their colon! If your skin infection (I think you said you have had for 10+ years) is a result of a blocked/clogged colon, it will take more than a week or a month to cleanse, open and heal it, but you will not find true health with a dirty colon and your skin will not be free of this infection.
You can use essential oils to assist and support your body, while cleansing-- but until you get the elimination channels open and working, your body has no way to get rid of the toxins, except through your skin.
So my plan is to start using essential oils externally as part of my fight against the infection.
I have a couple thoughts on how you could best use the oils externally.
1. Massage them into the bottoms of your feet / foot reflexology.
2. Massage them into the blocked areas of your body (colon, liver).
3. Massage them into the area at the base of your skull / neck.
I know you want to apply them to the sites of skin infection, so I will just say, start with one area and go slow. See how the different oils affect the area BEFORE using this as your main application process.
Which oils would you use? You have reccomended several oils in one of your past answers to one of my posts, but I think you/we were talking "internally". These are the oils you listed: Clove, cinnamon, peppermint, ginger, juniper, Cedarwood, spruce, pine or cypress. Would you also reccomend these for external use for my condition?
Yes, I recommended these oils for oral/internal use. They will be of benefit used externally/topically as well. They are oils that will help assist and support your body while you are cleansing.
They contain the PHENOLS AND PHENYLPROPANOIDS (found in Clove (90%), Cassia (80%), Basil (75%), Cinnamon (73%), Oregano (60%), Anise (50%), and Peppermint (25%).
While they can create conditions where unfriendly viruses and bacteria cannot live, the most important function performed by phenylpropanoids is that they clean the receptor sites on the cells. Without clean receptor sites cells cannot communicate, and the body malfunctions, resulting in sickness.
MONOTERPENES (found in most essential oils: Galbanum (80%), Angelica (73%), Hyssop (70%), Rose of Sharon (54%), Peppermint (45%), Juniper (42%), Frankincense (40%), Spruce (38%), Pine (30%), Cyress (28%), and Myrtle (25%).
While offering a variety of healing properties, the most important ability of the monoterpenes is that they can reprogram miswritten information in the cellular memory (DNA). With improper coding in cellular memory, cells malfunction and diseases result, including lethal ones, such as cancer.), SESQUITERPENES (the principal constituents of Cedarwood (98%), Vetiver (97%), Spikenard (93%), Sandalwood (Aloes)90%, Black Pepper (74%), Patchouli (71%), Myrrh (62%), and Ginger (59%). They are also found in Galbanum, Onycha, and Frankincense (8%).
Sesquiterpene molecules deliver oxygen molecules to cells, like hemoglobin does in the blood. Sesquiterpenes can also erase or deprogram miswritten codes in celluar memory.
The combination of "PMS" (Phenylpropanoids, Monoterpenes, and Sesquiterpenes) found in essential oils is probably one of the major aspects responsible for the therapeutic power familiar to essential oil users. Many oils containing PMS have been found to be useful in addressing many illnesses, injuries, and disease conditions. One hypothesis is that this combination offers the following actions:
1. Cleanse Receptor Sites: Phenols and phenylpropanoids can act to clean receptor sites on the surfaces of cells. This allows the proper transfer of hormones, peptides, neurotransmitters, steroids, and other intracellular messengers.
2. Deprogram Bad Information: Sesquiterpenes seem to work at the subcellular level by affecting membrane fluidity and facilitating oxygen transfer. Sesquiterpenes may also affect transport of material inside the cell. This allows for access to DNA and RNA which may offer a scientific basis for "deprograming or erasing the incorrect information from cellular memory" often referred to in holistic healing circles.
3. Reprogram Correct Information: Monoterpenes, working at both subcellular and intracellular levels, protect against free radical damage and work within cells to produce properly programed strands of RNA and DNA. This helps insure proper cell-to-cell communication and maintain healthy bodilyFunctions. Many refer to this as "reprogramming the cells".
These three classes of chemical components may be why essential oils sometimes affect a healing that is nearly instant and also permanent.
What they simply do is to restore the body back to its natural state of balance and health at the most basic and fundamental levels within the cells.
I hope you will read what I say about the use of essential oils and get on an intense cleansing program and FULL NATURAL HEALING PROTOCOL. I truly want you to find health and be free on your skin infection and I do believe that essential oils will be of great benefit to you. I believe they are a benefit to everyone who uses them therapeutically. I am 'a believer'. BUT, I don't believe for one minute they are all any person needs to do if they want to be healthy or 'cured'. I believe in cleansing, vegan eating, juicing, SuperFood, barefooting, hot & cold therapy, BODYWORK, moving your body EVERY DAY, the benefits of castor oil and tinctures and ALL the rest of the 'parts' to the protocols used on this forum.
Essential oils should only be used as one element/part of a complete NATURAL HEALING PROTOCOL that includes cleansing the elimination channels and organs, nourishing, restoring and rebuilding the body.
Essential oils are NOT a 'cure all' or 'magic bullet' in a bottle, but can be a very important element in a complete Natural Healing Protocol.
I believe essential oils often times can be the 'missing link' when people do the Natural Healing protocols --- successfully used by healers like Dr. Schulze for decades in his clinics --- find they are not ENOUGH.
Our world is filled with 'new' toxic influences in the years since Dr. Schulze was in his clinic/practicing/teaching. (As he said, our world is more toxic today than yesterday.) This is why he updated and intensified what he learned from Dr. Christopher, Jenson and others and in his personal clinical experience. He has said many times in his teaching he hopes that his formulas will be updated and intensified as necessary. This is what Uny and this forum are doing.
It is clear to me, Dr. Schulze -- today uses essential oils in several of his newer formulas and I believe if he continues to develop new formulas and products, essential oils will have an important presence. Essential oils should be a part of today's protocols.
My best advice to you and anyone looking to Natural Healing is to do ENOUGH-ENOUGH-ENOUGH! CLEANSE and CLEANSE and CLEANSE---NOURISH YOUR BODY, MOVE YOUR BODY, then do all the other PARTS of the protocols... including ESSENTIAL OILS!
Here are some oils that I have come across many times in the past few months, and I am planning on using them externally:
- Tea Tree
What do you think of them for external use? All of these oils would be fine for external use. Many people never take any essential oil orally and only use the oils topically or diffuse them. Your desk reference has a lot of good information on how to use essential oils topically.
I have bought the "Essential Oils Desk Reference" I am happy to hear you have a copy of the Essential Oils Desk Reference and hope you are finding the information you have been searching for concerning essential oils. and have read(pages 353; 356) that no more than 3 oils should be used in a blend. When 'creating' an oil blend of your own, it is good to only blend 3 oils. However, there are MANY blends that have been formulated using more than 3 oils. These blends are well tested and can be very powerful. How would you use the essential oils externally? Only 1 oil per application or a (self-made) blend of 3 or even more oils? You can certainly use a self-made blend.
Here's what I was going to do: Chose 9 single essential oils and make 3 blends, each blend consisting of 3 oils. I would make 1-3 applications per day, alternating the blends. This sounds fine, but I hope you will use essential oils to assist and support your body WHILE you do colon cleansing and NOT focus on treating the skin condition. I believe the skin infection / condition is your body's way of trying to rid itself of toxins because your elimination channels are blocked and not able to do their jobs.
Whenever necessary (for example when using Oregano or Thyme) I would use olive oil to make a dilution. Yes, be sure to dilute. Use your desk reference to check for recommended dilution for topical application.
Any other suggestions/tipps are more than welcome! I am giving you some suggestions below. You know better than anyone... and you will know quickly how you react to the different oils. The oils I am going to talk about, applied topically/externally will benefit and assist and support your body while you are cleansing. This is one of the great things about essential oils.. they get where they need to go. If you use them topically, diffuse them and breath them or if you ingest them, they will do their job!
Thank you so much in advance, You are welcome.
many healthy greetings, Wishing you HEALTH! Water
Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) is one of the most anti-microbial and antiseptic of all essential oils. It is anti-fungal, antiviral, and anti-infectious
Lemon (Citrus Limon) has antiseptic-like properties and contains compounds that amplify immunity. It promotes circulation, leukocyte formation, and lymphatic function.
Cinnamon Bark (Cinnamomum verum) is one of the most powerful antiseptics known. It is strongly antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) is anti-infectious, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory.
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis CT cineol) is antiseptic and anti-microbial. It is high in cineol—a key ingredient in antiseptic drugs. It helps fight candida and is anti-infectious.
I would definately use oregano, thyme and lemongrass oils. Using them topically will help with your internal cleansing and healing. Remember what is applied to the skin is absorbed into the body. Many people never take essential oils internally, but 'reap' their benefits.
Oregano (Origanum compactum) Essential Oil
Medical Properties: Anti-aging, powerful anti-viral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory, immune stimulant
USES: respiratory infectious diseases, infections/tuberculosis, digestive problems
Dilute 1 part oregano essential oil with 4 parts vegetable oil (carrier oil)
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) Essential Oil
Medical Properties: Anti-aging, highly anti-microbial, antifungal, antiviral, antiparasitic. A solution of thyme's most active ingredient, thymol, is used in many over-the-counter products such as mouthwash and vapor rubs because of its purifying agents.
USES: Infectious diseases, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimers disease, hepatitis.
Application: Dilute 1 part thyme with 4 parts vegetable / carrier oil;
CAUTION: May irritate the nasal membranes if inhaled directly from diffuser or bottle, or irritate the skin if applied neat (undiluted).
GRAS generally regarded as safe
FA food additive
DS dietary supplement
HBP use with caution if dealing with high blood pressure (small amounts)
CH do not use on children younger than 18 months of age
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus)
Historical Data: Lemongrass is used for purification and digestion. Research was published in Phyotherapy Research on topically applied lemongrass for its powerful antifungal properties.
MEDICAL PROPERTIES: Antifungal, antibacterial, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory, regenerates connective tissues and ligaments, dilates blood vessels, improves circulation, promotes lymph flow.
USES: Bladder infection, respiratory/sinus infection, digestive problems, parasites, torn ligaments/muscles, fluid retention, varicose veins, Salmonella.
APPLICATION: Dilute 1 part essential oil with 4 parts vegetable oil
(1) apply 1-2 drops on location
(2) charkas/vitaflex points
You mentioned using Ravensara and Lavender oils. Both could be of benefit. I know you have the desk reference, but I include a bit of information on these oils for others who are reading this.
Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica) Essential Oil
Historical Data: Ravensara is referred to by the people of Madagascar as "the oil that heals". It is antimicrobial and supporting to the nerves and respiratory system.
Medical Properties: Antitumoral, antiviral, antibacterial
USES: Herpes virus/viral infections, throat/lung infections, hepatitis, shingles, cancer, and pneumonia
1. apply 2-4 drops on location
2. chakras/Vita Flex points
3. directly inhale
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) Essential Oil
Medical Properties: Antiseptic, antifungal, analgesic, antitumoral, anticonvulsant, vasodilating, relaxant, anti-inflammatory, reduces blood fat/cholesterol, combats excess sebum on skin.
USES: Respiratory infections, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, menstrual problems/PMS, skin conditions (perinial repair, acne, eczema, psoriasis, scarring stretch marks), burns, hair loss, insomnia, nervous tension.
More About Lavender:
Action: Antiseptic, analgesic, antitumoral, anticonvulsant, sedative, anti-inflammatory.
Lavender is beneficial for cleansing cuts and wounds and is ideal for skin care, since it prevents the build up of excess sebum, a skin oil that bacteria feed on. Lavender has also been clinically evaluated for its relaxing effects.
Traditional Uses: The French scientist Rene Gattefosse was the first to discover lavender's ability to promote tissue regeneration and speed wound healing when he severely burned his arm in a laboratory accident. Today, lavender is one of the few essential oils to still be listed in the British Pharmacopoeia.
Indications: Burns (cell renewal), sunburns (including lips), dandruff, hair loss, allergies, convulsions, herpes, headaches, indigestion, insomnia, high blood pressure, menopausal conditions, nausea, phlebitis, tumors, pre-menstrual conditions, scarring (minimizes), skin conditions (acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and rashes) and stretch marks. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.
Other Uses: Lavender is a universal oil with many different applications. It may help arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, convulsions, depression, earaches, heart palpitations, high blood pressure, hives (urticaria), insect bites, laryngitis, nervous tension, respiratory infections, rheumatism, and throat infections.
1. apply 2-4 drops on location
2. chakras/Vita Flex points
3. directly inhale
5. take as a dietary supplement
Lavender has a wide range of uses.
Apply where you would use a deodorant.
Safe for use on small children.
Fragrant Influence: Calming, relaxing, and balancing, both physically and emotionally.
CAUTIONS: True lavender is often extended with hybrid lavender or synthetic linalol and linalyl acetate.
