What Emotional Imbalances Can Be Balanced With Essential Oils in Aromatherapy?

Among the many emotional disturbances affecting humans, Aromatherapy has been found effective in: Anger Bergamot, Jasmine, Neroli, Orange, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang Anxiety Bergamot, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Mandarin, Neroli, Patchouli, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Sandalwood, Vetiver Confidence Bay Laurel, Bergamot, Cypress, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Orange, Rosemary Depression On a systemic level the euphoric oils address depression arising from sympathetic nervous hyperfunctioning from sensory, emotional or mental overstimulation (including grief, fear, and shock). On a focal level, however, they also work symptomatically to help relieve any kind of depression. As such, they may be used short-term until systemic treatment is available or begun, and regardless of whether the more long-term treatment involves aromatherapy alone or also includes counseling, nutrition, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation or any other form of natural therapy. In some cases, as in depression with chronic low self-esteem and insecurity, euphoric oils should not be used continuously on their own. At the very least they should be combined with one or two other oil types that address the systemic condition presenting. The main euphoric oils include Jasmine, Ylang-ylang, Neroli, Rose, Tuberose, Clary sage, Nutmeg, Patchouli, Vetiver, Atlas cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Myrrh. From the fragrance energetics point of view these oils are predominantly floral-sweet, woody and rooty.

Twelve Tribes Gemstones and their Essential Oil with corresponding Ketoret  and Brain Function

Twelve Tribes Gemstones and their Essential Oil with corresponding Ketoret and Brain Function

  The Torah tells us that upon the Shoham stones, the names of the tribes were engraved: וְלָקַחְתָּ, אֶת-שְׁתֵּי אַבְנֵי-שֹׁהַם; וּפִתַּחְתָּ עֲלֵיהֶם, שְׁמוֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.  שִׁשָּׁה, מִשְּׁמֹתָם, עַל, הָאֶבֶן הָאֶחָת; וְאֶת-שְׁמוֹת הַשִּׁשָּׁה הַנּוֹתָרִים, עַל-הָאֶבֶן הַשֵּׁנִית—כְּתוֹלְדֹתָם – Six of their names on one stone and the names of the remaining six on the second stone, according to their births (Shemos 28:9-10).  Therefore, upon one stone was engraved: Reuven, Shimon, Levi, Yehuda, Dan, Naphtali; and upon the other stone was engraved: Gad, Asher, Yissachar, Zevulun, Yosef and Binyamin.  Why did the Kohen Gadol carry the names of the Tribes of Israel upon his shoulder straps? אַבְנֵי זִכָּרֹן, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל – Stones of remembrance for the Bnei Yisrael.   Rashi notes: שֶׁיְּהֵא רוֹאֶה הַקָּבָּ”ה אֶת הַשְּׁבָטִים כְּתוּבִים לְפָנָיו וְיִזְכּוֹר צִדְקָתָם – That Hashem will see the (names of the) Tribes written before Him and He will remember their righteousness (28:12 w/ Rashi). And what of the אבני מילואים, the twelve Filling Stones, which adorned the חשן (the breastplate)?  Upon those twelve were engraved the names of the tribes, in order of their birth, one tribe per stone (28:21 w/ Rashi). If the names of the Tribes were engraved upon the stones of the shoulder straps, what do we learn from the fact that they needed to be further engraved upon the twelve breast-plate stones?  Furthermore, what lesson can we derive from the command to engrave the Shoham stones with six names per stone, while the Filling Stones were engraved with one name per stone?  Perhaps the Torah is teaching us a profound lesson of what it means to be a member of...

Proper Testing of Essential Oils and Hemophilia Clients. Written by Rivka Sari ©2012 This is the most important information that Aromatherapist must know.

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. Our goal in this aspect of becoming a seasoned and proficient...
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.

Holy Smokes! Incense is a Higher Ground of Medicinal & Original Aromatherapy?

Holy Smokes! Incense is a Higher Ground of Medicinal & Original Aromatherapy?

The ‘ketoret’ is the incense described in the Bible for use in the Holy Temple. Its composition and usage is described in greater detail in midrash, the Talmud and subsequent rabbinic literature. Although it was not produced following the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE, some Jews study the composition of the ancient Temple incense for future use in a restored Temple as part of daily Jewish services. Contemporary Judaism still uses aromatic spices in one ritual, the havdala) ceremony ending the Sabbath. In addition, there is a blessing for pleasant smells. Most Incense can be used for Aromatherapy medicinal purposes. Some people like to make into a ritualistic experience, but in Jewish tradition this is forbidden when burning incense because of the ketoret incense was and is the only ritual burning of incense allowed. Since our Temple does not stand we can no longer burn ketoret. But much of it’s ingredients like frankincense, myrrh, cassia etc can be used for healing purposes only. Incense can purify a space from germs. The burning of incense, use of essential oils, or inhaling of nature’s aromas outdoors was one of the original natural “treatments,” helping to keep humans in balance on many different levels since the beginning of time. It just goes to show that as we continue on the path of technological advancement of our planet, modern medicine, and further disconnection from G-d’s creation of nature, society ultimately relies more and more on man-made drugs and chemicals to make up for the lack of awareness of, the organic medicines that their ancestors received from spending time in nature...

The Color Red אדם in Understanding Biblical Color Therapy צבע טיפול בשמנים

Adom אדם  in Hebrew is the word for the color Red The letter read  are from Right to left Alef Dalet Men אדם Each letter represents Adom א, Daveed ד (King), Mashiach מ. These three have Wisdom and Understanding. Red is associated with the Tribe of Judah which is the tribe that the King of Israel was chosen from. It is also the tribe which Mashiach (Messiah) will come from. Judah is considered the wisest and most understanding of the 12 tribes of Israel. Red is considered one of the most important anointing colors. But too much of the color Red -Adom can become Edom, Edom is the name of the nation that sprang from Esau, the son of Isaac and Rebekah, and the brother of Jacob (Genesis 25:30). Edom bordered Israel on the south and was a kingdom long before Israel (Genesis 36:31). Edom and Israel skirmished throughout their existence. King Saul battled them (1 Samuel 14:47) but David conquered them (2 Samuel 8:14) and Edom remained under Israel’s control until the reign of Jehoram (2 Kings 8:20). The ethnonym, Edomite, occurs only sporadically in the Bible (Deuteronomy 23:8, 1 Samuel 21:8, 1 Kings 11:14), and is spelled without the signature letter vav. That means that Edomite is spelled the same as Adamite (one of Adam).   The root (shoreshim) of  RED  דמם  דום  דמה  דמן  אדם  דם Perhaps by coincidence and perhaps not, this root-cluster contains roots that all seem to have to do with stillness or productivity, with a clear nod to the color red. Red is the color of dawn and is also the first color a human...
