The effectiveness of essential oils cannot be fully understood without some understanding of frequency. Frequency is the measurable rate of electrical energy flow that is constant between any two points. Everything has a frequency. Dr. Robert O. Becker in his book “The Body Electric” establishes that the human body has an electrical frequency and that much about a person’s health can be determined by it. In 1992, Bruce Taino of Taino Technology, an independent division of Eastern State University in Cheny, Washington, built the first frequency monitor in the world. Taino has determined that the average frequency of a healthy human body during the day time is 62 to 68 Hz. When the frequency drops, the immune system is compromised. If the frequency drops to 58 Hz, cold and flu symptoms appear; at 55 Hz, diseases like Candida take hold; at 52 Hz, Epstein Bar and at 42 Hz, Cancer. Taino’s machine was certified as 100 percent accurate and is currently being used in the agricultural field today.

According to Dr. Royal R. Rife, every disease has a frequency. He has found that certain frequencies can prevent the development of disease and that others would destroy diseases. Substances of higher frequency will destroy diseases of lower frequency.

The study of frequencies raises an important question, concerning the frequencies of substances we eat, breathe, and absorb. Many pollutants lower healthy frequency. Processed or canned food has a frequency of zero. Fresh produce has up to 15 Hz; dry herbs from 12 to 22 Hz; and fresh herbs from 20 to 27 Hz. Processed, canned foods have no measurable frequency. It would seem we need a source of higher frequencies to maintain our good health.

Essential oil frequencies start at 52 Hz and go as high as 320 Hz, which is the frequency of Rose Oil. Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., CANNOT live.

Research by Dr. Gary Young, a world-renown researcher in the field of essential oils, has shown that if the frequency of the right and left brain lobes varied more than 3 Hz, a headache would begin. If the frequency varied more than 10 Hz, a substantial or migraine-type headache would develop.

By combining an oil formula composed of Helichrysum, Chamomile, and Lavender and through simple inhalation, Dr. Young discovered the frequency of the head could be balanced and return to normal within a few seconds.

In another experiment the frequency of a young man, 26 years old, while holding a cup of coffee, dropped in three seconds to 58 Hz. Without the use of oils, it took three days to go back up to normal. Another young man, 24 years old, drank the coffee, and in three seconds his frequency dropped to 52 Hz. When he inhaled a blend of oils, his frequency returned to normal in 21 seconds.

There is still much research to be conducted, but the premise is if we can keep the body frequency high enough and well oxygenated, we will be free of disease.


Further research has shown that with their immune-stimulating properties, essential oils enhance and support the building of the immune system, whether they are inhaled or applied on the body topically. Even those who contract a cold or the flu recover up to 70 percent faster using essential oils.

Diffusing the Oils Into the Atmosphere

Perhaps one of the greatest attributes of essential oils is their ability to purify the air we breathe. When diffused in the home they release oxygenating molecules into the atmosphere where they stay suspended for several hours to destroy and prevent bacteria, fungus, mold, and freshen the air with natural fragrances. In addition to removing dust from the air, the diffused oils allow us to breathe in their wonderful antiviral, antibacterial and antiseptic properties.

This is the most perfect way to improve our home environment, either to help us relax, relieve tension and headaches, dispel odors, or just create an atmosphere of peace and harmony. If you have children or suffer from Emphysema, Sinusitis, Asthma, and allergies, diffusing essential oils into your home will make an essential difference for you and your family’s health.

Topical Application of the Oils

There is a misconception that pure essential oils should first be diluted before applying them topically on the skin. Pure oils, with the exception of those containing the natural chemical constituent known as “phenol,” (such as with cinnamon, clove or oregano) may be applied “neat” (undiluted) directly on the skin. Oils containing phenol can cause irritation or burning sensation.

CAUTION: Because many commercially available EO’s have been adulterated with solvents and/or man-made chemicals, you should not apply EO’s directly to the skin…unless you know them to be safe. There is but one major producer of EO’s in the U.S. that is known for producing ONLY pure unadulterated oils. EO’s from this producer are, with few exceptions, considered safe to apply directly to the skin without diluting first with a carrier oil. That producer is Young Living Essential Oils, Inc. If in doubt, always try a small amount first to test for a possible reaction.

When applied to the body by rubbing on the feet, essential oils penetrate the skin and travel (via the bloodstream) throughout the body and affect every cell, including the hair, within 20 minutes. The oils do not build up and store in the body because they are very subtle and volatile, having a high evaporation rate. Because of their chemical structure, they are metabolized like other nutrients in the cells.

In addition to the feet, the oils may be applied directly to affected areas of the body, such as to joints, muscle and tendons needing relief from aches and pain. Dr. Gary Young, has discovered the oil from Helichrysum, Birch, Clove and Peppermint when combined can alleviate pain away in a manner of moments.


Aromatherapy means to treat with aroma through inhalation. Essential oils, because of their fragrance and volatility, have been reported to help create greater spiritual, physical and emotional harmony when inhaled.

The olfactory, that part of our nose responsible for odor detection, sends impulses created by various odors to the amygdala, which is the memory center of our brain for fear and trauma. It was only discovered in 1989 that the amygdala plays a major role in the storing and releasing of emotional trauma, and only odor or fragrance stimulation has a profound effect in triggering a response with this gland. Fragrance is one of man’s greatest enjoyments, bringing back memories of past experiences and creating a feeling of security, grounding, and well-being. Dr. Joseph Ledoux, of New York Medical University, feels that this could be a major break-through in releasing emotional trauma.
