Very few essential oil experts and aroma therapists are aware of the energetic effect of essential oils. This is understandable considering how powerful certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils are in their simplest methods of affecting our physiology on the cellular level. Few have bothered to study essential oils effects on a deeper level because the way they work on the cellular and chemical levels seemed to explain sufficiently their effectiveness in healing our bodies.
My primary research has been in the study of the human biofield and essential oils and during the course of my research I have found some very important words of wisdom that I wish to share. According to Oschman, “Vibrations underlie virtually every aspect of nature” (2000, p. 121). Every cell in the body with its electrons, atoms, molecules and chemical bonds has its own vibrations. Furthermore, information can be transferred from one living organism to another without physical contact by way of entrainment. There are over 90 octaves in the spectrum of electromagnetic vibration frequencies and all therapeutic treatments involve one or more portions of the energy spectrum (Oschman, 2000).
Every cell is designed to run at a specific voltage and frequency so in general disease occurs when cells do not have enough voltage and are running at too low frequency. This is where the little known effect of essential oils comes into play. Essential oils have the highest frequencies of any substances tested so far. A high-quality rose oil tops the frequency charts at 320 MHz with harmonics of 160 and 80. Lavender oil tests at 118 MHz with a harmonic of 59. Wild Tansy is 105 MHz and 53 harmonics. Humans test at 62 to 68 MHz with individual organ systems testing at different frequencies. Furthermore, individual essential oils contain hundreds of frequencies. Certain oils and blends of oils contain frequencies that correspond to a specific organ (Tennant, 2013). The frequency of rose oil is higher than any human cell frequency but its harmonics include 160 MHz and 80 MHz. With the human brain operating at 70 to 78 MHz, rose oil can transfer its energy to the brain because of the similar Hertz range. Furthermore, lavender oil rates at 59 MHz which is very close to the resonant frequency of many human organs including the liver, stomach, spleen and colon.
The fouler things in life also have specific frequencies, viruses, bacteria, germs, and mold all have frequencies although much lower than plants and essential oils. A synthetic essential oil, or simply an inferior quality essential oil that may not be noticeably different that a therapeutic grade oil (at least to the untrained user) certainly will not have the same frequency or effect that a certified pure therapeutic grade essential oil will have. In fact, these oils will not only be unable to produce the same healing effect but may indeed have detrimental effects because of their inferior chemical and energetic properties.
David Stewart (2013) discusses the way essential oil molecules affect the body by way of entrainment. The essential oils resonate with body tissues at frequencies intrinsic to the body’s own spectrum along with the harmonic and beat frequencies. These frequencies increase the body’s own electromagnetic vibrations and restore coherence to the human electric field in ways that produce healing and maintain wellness.
Dr. Tennant explains that from his studies and experiments he found that the essential oils were getting results which he had assumed was because the oils were correcting the cellular voltage. However he says that he soon found that the oils did not change the voltage. Further study revealed that the oils were changing the signals coming from the DNA to the proteins in the cells. Dr. Tennant likens this to the way a software antivirus program corrects errors in the computer software. Dr. Tennant claims the essential oils correct the information being sent from the DNA to the proteins in cells.
The frequency aspect of essential oils also helps us to understand why some oils work
differently on the same condition with different people. Each of us also has our own frequencies and harmonics and these will respond differently to the frequencies and harmonics of any given oil. This can be compared to the way our body reacts chemically to a certain perfume or cologne. I personally have sniffed some fabulous aromas out of fancy perfume bottles only to apply it and get a much different (and far less pleasant) resulting aroma.
If you would like more information on any of the information contained here I suggest you read the books below that I have referenced. I am continuing to do research in this area and will continue to share my research. My dissertation is under way and will examine the effects of certified pure therapeutic grade essentials oils _on the human biofield.
