Proper Testing of Essential Oils and Hemophilia Clients Written by Rivka Sari ©2012 – Written Homework  assignment for Tiferet Aromatherapy Course Study with Avraham Sand based on his work on Fragrance Testing. Also based on the work of Professor Tim Jacob, head of the Smell Research Laboratory at Cardiff University on the art of Body Fragrance Matching When we first experience the essential oil, this is like a first date. The chemistry between the oil and the client will usually become clear immediately, according to the way they respond to the fragrance. This is only a brief encounter compared to using the essential oil in an aromatherapy treatment, but it is a very reliable first impression. When doing a massage or reflexology treatments, if the client is drawn to the fragrance, it will be effective and enjoyable when they use it in a treatment right at that time.  your nose is a medicine detective. The only If they are not drawn to it, the oil should not be used at that time, but might still be an appropriate choice when used in a later treatment, if it tests positively later. It is important to realize that our preferences (and needs) for the oils are continuously changing. We will be attracted to different oils at night than we would choose in the morning, and different oils at various seasons in the year. A woman will be drawn to varying oils at different times during her monthly cycle. As our state of health changes, our fragrance preferences and needs change accordingly.

Don’t EVER use turmeric if you’re on any blood thinner and coagulations medications

by Rivka Sari | Apr 24, 2016  Health, Remedies & Natural Cures |22 April 2016 Turmeric is often touted as a natural cure-all for most common ailments. It is also usually recommended as an alternative to pharmaceuticals and other medications as it is a natural substance and produces fewer side effects. Although these are all valid points, this leads many people to underestimate the effect that turmeric has on your body. Research has shown that turmeric can actually cause some serious side effects if taken in high doses or used in combination with other drugs. What is Turmeric? When people refer to “turmeric” they are usually referring to the ground-up root of the turmeric plant. The use of turmeric dates back to India almost four thousand years ago, where it was used as a culinary spice and also in medicinal and ceremonial situations. Although many of it’s claimed benefits go without scientific backing, turmeric has still been proven in many studies to provide a wide variety of health benefits. Most of turmeric’s health benefits come from the active ingredient found inside it called curcumin. Throughout the extensive studies conducted on curcumin, researchers found that curcumin exhibits anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-thrombotic (reduces blood clots) effects. As a result of all of these beneficial properties, people often use turmeric as an alternative to, or in combination with, other drugs that they use to treat their ailments. They often do this to avoid the complications and side effects that occur when one takes high doses of pharmaceutical drugs. However, the same properties that make turmeric so beneficial also make it dangerous to take in combination...

General Hemophilia Information for People who have a bleeding disorder

General Hemophilia Information (c) 2011 Written By Rivka Sari by Rivka Sari | Jan 28, 2016 | blog, essential oils for hemophilia, HEMOPHILIA, Safety, Uncategorized | 0 comment Written By: Rivka Sari (c) 2011 General Hemophilia Information Hemophilia is a rare disease that prevents the blood from clotting normally. A person with hemophilia lacks the necessary clotting factors to stop bleeding, so he often needs some sort of intermittent treatment to avoid serious blood loss in the event of a cut or injury. Approximately 20,000 Americans suffer from hemophilia. The disease can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the how impaired a person’s clotting factors are. The idea that a hemophiliac can bleed to death from a minor cut is a fallacy. A person with hemophilia may bleed a bit longer from a minor external injury or cut, but most of these problems can be easily remedied using typical first aid practices. The biggest concern for hemophiliacs is internal bleeding because it can occur without obvious signs and can cause very serious, life-threatening situations. Bleeding into the joints, muscles and other soft tissues is of major concern. Possible Causes of Hemophilia There are two major types of hemophilia, classified depending on which particular clotting protein is missing:Hemophilia A is caused by a lack of factor VIII. It accounts for approximately 80% of all hemophilia cases. It is passed to male children from a mother who carries the disease. Hemophilia B, also caused Christmas disease, is caused by a deficiency of factor IX. It is also passed to male children by a mother who is a carrier. It is...
Aroma for Brain Health?

Aroma for Brain Health?

In studies performed at Vienna and Berlin Universities, researchers discovered that sesquiterpenes, a natural compound found in essential oils of Vetiver, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Rosemary, Sandalwood and Frankincense Rivae, Frankinense Sacra can increase levels of oxygen in the brain by up to 28 percent (Nasel, 1992). Such an increase in brain oxygen may lead to a heightened level of activity in the hypothalamus and limbic systems of the brain, which can have dramatic effects on not only emotions but on learning, attitude, and many physical processes of the body such as: immune function, hormone balance, and energy levels. High levels of sesquiterpenes also occur in Melissa, Myrrh, Cedarwood, and Clove essential oils. Research from the universities of Berlin and Vienna found that sesquiterpenes increase oxygenation around the pineal and pituitary glands. This allows for ideal balance of emotion-regulating and memory-stimulating hormones. We recommend brain blends such as  Brain Health, Stress Ease Now, and Mind Over Matter, to calm your emotion, create more oxygen, ease headaches, ease stress, to build your immune system and quiet all over  body inflammation. The bottom line is that essential oils can penetrate not only the blood-brain barrier, but they can also penetrate the skin, follow nerve pathways, follow the meridians, and provide healing and balance even at the cellular level such as cellular memory and DNA.

Essential Oils Benefits List

Essential Oils Benefits List

One of the core distinctions between herbal medicine and aromatherapy is that one won’t hear the question “what brand of plants do you use?”  This allows for a completely different relationship to plants and the organic materials one uses for healing. It is all about the plant material not the brand. We need to teach or share an essential oil in a brand-less bottle or smell strip. Because I believe there is a need to develop a deeper relationship with the individual essential oil we are smelling and experiencing than merely with the identification or biases that come with brand identification. Because an essential oil is not a brand, it is hopefully a plant derived aromatic medicinal substance.
