21 Things You Should Know About Essential Oils
Essential oils are not really oils. They do not contain the fatty acids that constitute what we would consider an actual oil. Valerie Gennari Cooksley, author of Aromatherapy: Soothing Remedies to Restore, Rejuvenate and Heal defines essential oils as “highly concentrated plant constituents possessing potent medicinal and cosmetic qualities.” However, I think Stephanie Tourles nailed it in Organic Body Care recipes when she said, “I consider essential oils the life force or the soul of the plant.”
Most essential oils are high in antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties: This makes them an excellent addition to your homemade cleaning preparations. Oils that are best for cleaning are: Lemon, grapefruit, eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree, lavender, and rosemary.
Essential oils are miniscule in molecular size, which means they are absorbed well by the skin – making them perfect ingredients in personal care items intended to heal, soften, and nourish. However, they do not accumulate in the body over time – they simply offer up their healing properties and then pass on through.
Scientific studies have shown that rosemary essential oil helps your brain perform. Specifically, smelling rosemary essential oil helps memory recall and performance on tests. Interestingly, this study also showed that groups that inhaled either rosemary or lavender essential oil felt much more relaxed than those who inhaled no odor at all.
Fragrance oils and essential oils are NOT the same thing. As a rule of thumb, if you see the word “fragrance” or “fragrance oil” or even “perfume” on anything, you can assume this is synthetic and NOT natural. (Even if it says natural fragrance.)
Essential oils are wholly natural and cannot be patented; which means that you’ll never see an essential oil in a pharmaceutical drug. As such, you can expect that the vast majority of mainstream healthcare practitioners will never recommend essential oils as therapeutic alternatives to drugs. More importantly, because essential oils cannot be patented, drug companies will not waste money studying them. This limits our scientific knowledge of essential oils GREATLY, and the majority of what we know about them are things that have been passed down through thousands of years of personal use and experimentation.
Enormous amounts of plants are needed to produce essential oil. In fact, on the extreme end, it takes 4000 pounds of Bulgarian roses to produce 1 pound of essential oil. Other plants like lavender only take 100 pounds of plant material to produce a pound of essential oil. Still, can you imagine how concentrated essential oils must be, in light of how many plants are used to produce them?
Most essential oils should never be used undiluted on the skin. Instead, they should be combined with “real” oils (called carrier oils), waxes, butters, alcohols, or other diluting measures. Because they’re so concentrated, if you don’t dilute, you may end up with an unfortunate reaction (and unhappy skin).
There are a few essential oils that are generally recognized as safe to use undiluted. Of course, there has to be a few exceptions to the rule. Again, in Organic Body Care Recipes, the author points out that the only essential oils that are widely acknowledged as safe to use undiluted (sparingly) are: lavender, German chamomile, tea tree, sandalwood, and rose geranium.
Never use an undiluted essential oil on a baby or child. Children have much thinner, more delicate skin than adults have, and tend to be very sensitive to the potency of essential oils. In fact, even if you do use essential oil in a recipe for children, only use half of the essential oil recommended in the recipe. That’s all they’ll need, anyway. (Here is a list of 19 essential oils that are safe for babies and children.)
Avoid the following essential oils while pregnant or nursing (and skip EOs completely in your first trimester): Aniseed, cedarwood, chamomile, cinnamon, clary sage, clove, ginger, jasmine, lemon, nutmeg, rosemary, sage (this is only a partial list of some of the more common essential oils – view the full one here).
To test if you’re sensitive to an essential oil (which is probably best to do before using it in a skincare preparation): Combine one drop of essential oil with 1/2 tsp carrier oil (like olive, jojoba, or sweet almond). Rub this on the inside, upper portion of your arm and wait a few hours. If no redness or itching develops, you’re most likely not sensitive to that essential oil.
Keep all essential oils out of the reach of children – and avoid contact with your eyes. This is just standard safety precautions, but must be mentioned
Do not take essential oils internally, especially oils like wintergreen and eucalyptus. While some essential oils may be used well-diluted in something like toothpaste with safety, it’s generally recognized that there’s no need to take essential oils internally. In fact, there are several toxic essential oils that should be avoided even through skin contact. Luckily, these are NOT common essential oils, and most of them you’ll never find in the store.
Not all essential oils are created equally, nor does more expensive necessarily mean “better.” There are certain brands I will use in a less therapeutic fashion (like for cleaning), because they’re far less expensive than their counterparts. When you see a wide fluctuation in price between, say, lavender essential oils, you can bet that the far less expensive one is likely lower in quality. However, a small variation in price differences on the higher end will NOT mean a better essential oil. It will just mean a higher price. (A little birdie also told me that there are also only a handful of essential oil distilleries in the world, which means that most essential oils come from the exact same places – thus there is little difference in quality between the more “typically priced” EOs.) What I’m saying here is: Understand that you DO have to pay for quality, but that if you’re just using essential oils in non-therapeutic fashions, it’s okay to use less expensive oils (like the Beeyoutiful ones pictured at the top of this post, or NOW brand essential oils). But if you want high quality, I suggest using Mountain Rose Herbs or another ethical supplier that offers organic essential oils (grown without pesticides or toxic fertilizers).
To test your essential oil to see how “pure” it is, put a single drop of it on a piece of construction paper. If it evaporates quickly and leaves no noticeable ring, it is pure. If you have a ring left, then it is likely diluted by the manufacturer with an oil of some sort (this test will not work for myrrh, patchouli, and absolutes).
Essential oils will last for at least 5 years (if not 10), so one bottle could literally last you a decade. Hopefully that thought will help mitigate the cost involved in purchasing some essential oils. Because they are SO concentrated and only a tiny amount is needed in anything you do, they’ll last you a very, very long time. The only exception to this rule is citrus oils, which will see a reduction in potency after a year or two.
Store your essential oils in dark glass bottles (which they were probably packaged in) and out of direct sunlight. This is simply to help preserve their potency.
Remember that what you’re allergic to in food, you will be allergic to in essential oils. So if, for some reason, you can’t eat sage without breaking out in a rash, steer clear of sage essential oil (or any product containing it).
USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO HELP YOUR MOOD.
Lavender, peppermint, grapefruit, chamomile, lemon, ylang-ylang all help produce happy, joyous moods. Clary sage helps with PMS (although there have been reports that overuse of clary sage can lead to intoxication). Rosemary increases focus and concentration. Don’t forget the mood benefits of essential oils. Here’s an information packed aromatherapy reference chart to refer to.
The recommended usage of many essential oils is hotly contested throughout the aromatherapy profession. The majority of oils you find in the supermarket are absolutely safe (though you should research them before using them); however, once you start digging into the world of essential oils, you’ll find that professionals – even within the same organization – debate extensively over the use of certain oils. If you’re ever unsure about an oil or its use, do the research you can, and if you still cannot make up your mind as to its safety – avoid it. But, by all means, do NOT be afraid of essential oils. Just use them with care and respect, and all will be fine.

The Emissary by Patricia Cori
In Patricia Cori's newest book The Emissary (soon to be a major A-list motion picture movie), she reveals how whales, dolphins and humans are being genocided by a targeted depopulation program to destroy Source-oriented intelligent life on our planet, and how her book The Emissary is a vehicle to bringing this message to the mainstream reading public and motion picture theatres.
"The screenplay format of Patricia Cori’s The Emissary, quickly optioned by Global Entertainment Holdings, is already in development to become a major motion picture. It is a fact-based fictional account of the mass extinction event taking place on planet Earth. In Dan Brown’s eerie Da Vinci Code style, author Patricia Cori takes the reader into a world of unexplained reality and concepts perhaps too real for us to imagine in our busy lives.
HOLLYWOOD, CA – In an ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, author, interdimensional researcher, and Cetacean activist Patricia Cori discusses her newest book The Emissary (soon to be a major A-list motion picture). Patricia Cori also reveals how whales, dolphins and humans are being genocided by a targeted depopulation program to destroy Source-oriented intelligent life on our planet, and how her book The Emissary is a vehicle to bringing this message to the mainstream reading public and motion picture theatres.
Writing about Patricia Cori's The Emissary in Exonews.org, Debbie West tells us, "The screenplay format of Patricia Cori’s The Emissary, quickly optioned by Global Entertainment Holdings, is already in development to become a major motion picture. It is a fact-based fictional account of the mass extinction event taking place on planet Earth. In Dan Brown’s eerie Da Vinci Code style, author Patricia Cori takes the reader into a world of unexplained reality and concepts perhaps too real for us to imagine in our busy lives.
"In this newly released, spell-binding book, lead character Jamie Hastings is sought out due to her unique psychic and remote viewing skills and brought into a military black ops program, masked as oil exploration on the pretense of preserving whale sanctuaries. When it’s discovered that the real assignment is to search out an advanced civilization beneath the oceans, the mysterious nuances and synchronicities tied to events playing out on the world stage awaken the reader to a disturbing thought. Within our subconscious lingers the notion that we are not alone in this universe and that this fact has been hidden for a very long time.
"Author Patricia Cori gives her readers a lot to ponder as she draws them into a new world of possibilities. In fact, can whales communicate, as they do with psychic Jamie Hastings in The Emissary? Our science argues that they do indeed communicate and are of a very high intelligence. On the wake of the most recent Taiji dolphin slaughters, legislation is arguing that dolphins be given the status of 'Non-Human Personhood,' and activists like Ric O’Barry are pleading for humanity to get outraged. O’Barry’s award winning documentary, The Cove, produced in 2009 and listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most film awards ever recorded, is a daring look into the brutal inhuman treatment of unbelievable cruelty that occurs as dolphin families are separated from their young, causing mothers to abort and forcing the pod to watch as each one is either bludgeoned to death or led to a life in captivity.
Weaving an intriguing tale, Patricia Cori’s The Emissary reveals through her character, Jamie Hastings, how to persevere on a journey to seek truth using inner guidance and trust. Cori’s message of galactic hope and transparency are spelled out in her profound earlier trilogy, The Sirian Revelations, which for the discerning readers explores humanity’s continuing struggle to evolve into a new heart-centered frequency.
But The Emissary is relentless in driving home another main point: the reckless destruction by mankind of Earth’s oceans and all its inhabitants. Mirrored in truth, the story parallels a real life U.S. Navy sonar-testing program, as reported by the New York Times, that includes the annihilation of as estimated 13 million cetaceans – including whales and dolphins.
“These virtually unregulated Navy Warfare Testing Programs already approved are now taking a toll on all aquatic life. The sonar exercises at issue would take place off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, Hawaii, Alaska and in the Gulf of Mexico – affecting literally every coastal state. In many regions, the Navy plans to increase the number of training exercises or expand the areas in which they may occur." -Rosalind Peterson, California President and Co-Founder of the Agriculture Defense Coalition, a citizen watch organization that monitors geoengineering and warfare activities.
There again comes a glimpse of reality vs. fiction with memories of other actual news stories by the Huffington Post, The New York Times and CNN, citing countless mysterious reports of beached whales, entire dolphin pods, dead birds, fish and other marine life in unexplained genocide.
The 'Great Noise' described through communication with the whales in The Emissary, is related to sonar testing and to HAARP technology, an actual military program long suspected of being tied to geoengineering. Cori reminds us, through this marvelous fictional story, that our own discernment will lead us to the truth, that the only way to overcome adversity is to face it with courage and conviction and that the light prevails … but not without brave warriors like the novel’s heroine, Jamie Hastings, whose uncanny resemblance to the author does not go unnoticed.
Appealing to society to protest the destruction of our oceans, violence against whales and dolphins and a plea for humanity to wake up has been a tireless and lifelong personal crusade for Patricia Cori. In a previous book, entitled Before We Leave You: Messages from the Great Whales and the Dolphin Beings, she explores Earth’s energetic connection to whales and dolphins, whose sounds provide a vibration field for our Earth and chords of communication waves that raise the entire planet into higher realms of consciousness. Perhaps, as many report, battles in the oceans are more than marine testing programs and military bases like AUTEC (Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center) can lead to a bigger story.
USO’s (underwater submerged objects) have been sighted and recorded in our recent history by military eye witnesses and even by Christopher Columbus in his crossing to the New World as shown in the History Channel Documentary. Traces of an advanced society by Admiral Byrd’s expeditions in Antarctica, along with strange military operations and ancient texts of the Lemurian and Atlanataen cultures, support the existence of a greater interdimensional force on this planet.
As absurd as that might sound, the historical trail of continuous covert corruption by human hands concludes that, as stewards of Earth, we must stay diligent in our pursuit of justice and honor of all life – and sometimes that challenges us to use a knowing eye and a brave heart.
Cori’s real life fight to save our oceans began several years ago with a personal experience with whales and dolphins that shook her to the core: a life changing event that resulted in the formation of the non-profit Save Earth’s Oceans, where all can join together on the quest to save the whales and dolphins and our planet. Save Earths’ Oceans held an extraordinary event in London on April 25th, Singing the Oceans Alive, to raise awareness of the plight of marine life featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and FLASHMOB kids who sang Under the Sea.
"What is under the sea that covers 2/3rds of this planet? Maybe we should listen to the whales and dolphins that have lived there for millions of years." -Patricia Cori

PERSONAL MESSAGE: “Human life is a very challenging experience and we are built to live in a state of alertness, which equates to the creation of various psychological conditions that make life difficult or even unbearable. With all my knowledge and skills I still must apply all I know to handle this challenge, so never feel weak or inadequate should you need help to navigate your thoughts and feeling towards a healthy state of being. In fact I still regularly read my own book, The Insanity of Humanity, to remind me of the importance of staying in a consciously expansive state beyond the fears that attempt to control my life – because when mine, or anyones fears take over, it becomes difficult to even remember how to feel expansively or what it felt like to be strong and clear. But with the right education you will remember that your clarity is closer than it feels, and then before you know it you are once again bigger than your fears.
I do assure you, that with the knowledge I have developed and share, life will no longer be something you are at the mercy of, and instead you will be an empowered being that will be the master of your existence whilst still dealing with all the unexpected events that life throws your way. We cannot change life itself as things stand, and of course their are many disturbing aspects to human societies that will take time to change, but we can change our ability to understand and deal with it, creating an experience that will inspire rather than destroy.”
ABOUT DAVID: He started his career as a Counsellor at the Brighton Psychology Centre in 1999, and he has been advancing his understanding of life and human behaviour with passion, clarity and vigour ever since. It also became apparent very early in his career, that anxiety and depression are prolific in today’s modern societies, and much higher than the statistics would indicate. So it was obvious that to understand these painful experiences were the foundation to understanding all psychological conditions that people were being labelled with – most start with common mental stress, and grow from there. If left unattended they develop into various forms of repressed and disturbing thoughts and corresponding mental disorders. Hence creating a confusing web of intertwined thoughts that become a cage which is very difficult to exit. The key observation was that the more overwhelming the disorder, the smaller the place of thought a person was in, hence it became clear that stress creates a process whereby a persons reality actually shrinks around them until fear has full control over all their thoughts. And in such a state it is impossible to expand ones existence beyond these restrictions – unless a person has access to clear and precise guidance from an expert in such matters. Appreciating the enormity of what helping people requires, David has made sure that he understands the entire terrain of the human mind whilst in an altruistic state, as he approaches counselling with complete integrity in the knowing that people place their well being in his hands.
His journey to being a cutting edge human behaviour specialist, has been enhanced by his other areas of experience, including; Talk Back Radio Announcer, Fitness Consultant, Business Advisor, Speaker and Author of The Insanity of Humanity.
Within this eclectic background of experiences, David found one consistent observation that is the key to every genuine endeavour of every person on the planet. He discovered the importance of a complete state of compassion if one is to maintain an expansive journey. And without an expansive journey, a persons real potential, meaning their inner purpose, as opposed to being successful at something, is never unleashed. And this is not to say that attaining a compassionate state of being cannot equate to wealth of some kind, but it will not be an obsessive outcome that one needs to feel whole. Compassion is a powerful force that creates many interesting qualities. It curbs corrupt thinking and places a person in a world beyond choice, hence fear has little power over a persons existence. Compassion is the key quality that guides all of David’s discoveries and it exists at the heart of Life expansion Technique(L.E.T.), which he now shares with the world through various mediums of education.
David guides his clients without being influenced by his own beliefs, learning, thoughts and feelings. For to not be in this state is a form of prejudice, and it compromises a Counsellors/Life Guides integrity, as well as the clients ability to trust the counsellor. You will always get nothing but the truth from David, and as he always says…
“The truth can’t hurt you just your resistance to it”…David Coles

DEBORAH BURGER is co-president of National Nurses United and president of California Nurses Association, which helped found the NNU. CNA membership has doubled in the past seven years, now representing over 57,000 RNs in 164 facilities across California. Its advocacy for nurses and patients provides an important check to corporate domination of health care debates. With CNA, California nurses have led the nation in ground-breaking patient advocacy legislation such as staffing ratios and whistle-blower protections.
ABOUT NURSES AT DALLAS, TEXAS HOSPITAL
Two nurses at Dallas Hospital in Texas contracted Ebola after caring for Ebola patient Thomas Duncan who later died. National Nurses United acted as an intermediary for nurses at Dallas Hospital, when CDC spokesperson Thomas Frieden blamed the first nurse's contamination on her breaking protocol.
National Nurses United, served as spokesperson for the nurses at Dallas Hospital many of whom didn't want to reveal their identities for fear of retaliation from the hospital, these are some of the allegations they made regarding the hospital's failure to adequately protect them and other patients while treating Thomas Duncan:
1. CLAIM: DUNCAN WASN'T IMMEDIATELY ISOLATED
On the day that patient Thomas Eric Duncan was admitted to the hospital with possible Ebola symptoms, he was "left for several hours, not in isolation, in an area where other patients were present," union co-president Deborah Burger said.
Up to seven other patients were present in that area, the nurses said, according to the union. A nursing supervisor faced resistance from hospital authorities when the supervisor demanded that Duncan be moved to an isolation unit, the nurses said, according to the union.
2. CLAIM: THE NURSES' PROTECTIVE GEAR LEFT THEIR NECKS EXPOSED
After expressing concerns that their necks were exposed even as they wore protective gear, the nurses were told to wrap their necks with medical tape, the union says. "They were told to use medical tape and had to use four to five pieces of medical tape wound around their neck. The nurses have expressed a lot of concern about how difficult it is to remove the tape from their neck," Burger said.
3. CLAIM: AT ONE POINT, HAZARDOUS WASTE PILED UP
"There was no one to pick up hazardous waste as it piled to the ceiling," Burger said. "They did not have access to proper supplies."
4. CLAIM: NURSES GOT NO 'HANDS-ON' TRAINING
"There was no mandate for nurses to attend training," Burger said, though they did receive an e-mail about a hospital seminar on Ebola. "This was treated like hundreds of other seminars that were routinely offered to staff," she said.
5. CLAIM: THE NURSES 'FEEL UNSUPPORTED'
So why did the group of nurses -- the union wouldn't say how many -- contact the nursing union, which they don't belong to? According to National Nurses United Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro, the nurses were upset after authorities appeared to blame nurse Pham, who has contracted Ebola, for not following protocols.
"This nurse was being blamed for not following protocols that did not exist. ... The nurses in that hospital were very angry, and they decided to contact us," DeMoro said. And they're worried conditions at the hospital "may lead to infection of other nurses and patients," Burger said.
ABOUT NATIONAL NURSES UNITED...
National Nurses United, with close to 185,000 members in every state, is the largest union and professional association of registered nurses in U.S. history. NNU was founded in 2009 unifying three of the most active, progressive organizations in the U.S.-and the major voices of unionized nurses-in the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, United American Nurses, and Massachusetts Nurses Association.
Combining the unparalleled record of accomplishments for nurses and patients embodied in the proud history of those nurses associations, which for some span more than 100 years, the establishment of NNU brought to life the dream of a powerful, national movement of direct care RNs.
At its founding convention in December, 2009, NNU adopted a call for action premised on the principles intended to counter the national assault by the healthcare industry on patient care conditions and standards for nurses, and to promote a unified vision of collective action for nurses with campaigns to:
Advance the interests of direct care nurses and patients across the U.S.
Organize all direct care RNs "into a single organization capable of exercising influence over the healthcare industry, governments, and employers."
Promote effective collective bargaining representation to all NNU affiliates to promote the economic and professional interests of all direct care RNs.
Expand the voice of direct care RNs and patients in public policy, including the enactment of safe nurse to patient ratios and patient advocacy rights in Congress and every state.
Win "healthcare justice, accessible, quality healthcare for all, as a human right."
In its first year, NNU made some spectacular achievements, including:
Organizing 6,500 RNs into NNU in Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Nevada, and Texas.
Sharing collective bargaining resources and experiences to support major collective bargaining campaigns in Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Washington DC, and other sites.
Sponsoring major national legislation to promote comprehensive reform for patient safety and professional nursing practice, including RN-to-patient ratios modeled on the successful California law sponsored by NNU affiliate CNA.
Strengthening the voice of RNs in the national healthcare reform debate, and in electoral campaigns from coast to coast.
Most notably, CNA/NNOC sponsored the nation's foremost RN patient safety law, in California, requiring minimum RN-to-patient ratios, the most effective solution in the U.S. for stemming the erosion of care standards in hospitals.
NNU affiliate members are renown as leading advocates of guaranteed healthcare by expanding and updating Medicare to cover all Americans, for negotiating many of the best collective bargaining contracts for RNs in the nation, and for sponsorship of innovative legislation and regulatory protections for patients and nurses.
