There is another dimension to the healing powers of essentials oils. This has to do with their electrical properties. All essential oils carry electrical charges, usually electrons or negative ions, which are healing and healthful. They are also energetic generating nanovolts of electricity (billionths of a volt) at megahertz frequencies (that's in the radio frequency range or millions of cycles per second).
These frequencies are measurable with properly designed instrumentation. Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Cherry, Washington, has developed sensitive frequency meters to measure such energies. In a series of experiments conducted by Tainio, reported in the Reference Guide to Essential Oils published by Abundant Health, the following was found.
The frequencies of essential oils are between 52-320 MHz--the highest of all known substances. The highest is Rose Oil at 320 MHz. Lower frequency oils resonate with the bodily systems that have those frequencies, such as the bones and joints, and, thus administer healing vibrations to those systems. When several oils are blended together, a fundamental frequency will emerge that may be higher or lower than many of its components.
By comparison, fresh herbs measure 20-27 MHz, dry herbs 12-22 MHz, and fresh produce 5-10 MHz. Processed or canned food measured zero. In other words, there is no life or life force in canned or processed foods. They contain chemical nutrition, but not the vital, electronic nutrition of live fresh foods.
Measurements on the human body found that a healthy person has a frequency around 62-68 MHz. When a person's frequency dips to 58 MHz, cold symptoms can manifest. Flu symptoms start at 57 MHz, Candida at 55 MHz, and Epstein Barr syndrome at 52 MHz. Cancer can begin when the body falls below 42 MHz. The process of dying begins at 25 MHz and goes to zero at death.
In other experiments by Tainio, he measured the effects of coffee, finding that even holding a cup of coffee lowers one's bodily frequency by 8 MHz and that taking a sip can lower one's frequency by 14 MHz. When essential oils are inhaled following the exposure to coffee, the bodily frequencies restore themselves in less than a minute, but if no oils are administered, it can take up to three days for the body to recover from even one drink of coffee.
Frequency data are not yet available on most oils. The table that follows gives a sample of electromagnetic frequencies for a few oils for which such measurements have been made and published. (See Reference Guide to Essential Oils published by Abundant Health.)
Electromagnet Frequencies of Selected Oils
|Rose (Rosa damascena)||320 MHz|
|Helichrysum (Helichrysum Italicum)||181 MHz|
|Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica)||134 MHz|
|Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)||118 MHz|
|Blue Tansy (Tanacetum annum)||105 MHz|
|German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)||105 MHz|
|Melissa (Melissa officinalis)||102 MHz|
|Juniper (Juniperus osteosperma)||98 MHz|
|Angelica (Angelica archangelica)||85 MHz|
|Peppermint (Mentha piperita)||78 MHz|
|Galbanum (Ferula Gummosa)||56 MHz|
|Basil (Ferula Gummosa)||52 MHz|
One of the most important healing modalities of the oils is their ability to lift our bodily frequencies to levels where disease cannot exist.
The Power of Prayer
Tainio also found that the frequencies of oils are also affected by thoughts. Negative thoughts lowered the frequencies of the oils by 12 MHz while positive thoughts raised them by 10 MHz. Prayer made an even greater difference, raising the frequency levels by 15 MHz.
This is important information. It has always been known that applying and receiving essential oils in an attitude of prayer greatly enhances their effectiveness. The above data offer a scientific explanation of why.
The point is that the Biblical application of essential oils was always with prayer. Sometimes prayer alone will work and sometimes oils alone will work, but the combination is very powerful, indeed. The intent and righteousness of the person applying the oil, as well as the faith of the receiver, has a great deal to do with the prognosis for success in healing. We must not only be intelligent and loving practitioners of aromatherapy, we must also live pure lives so that we may be clear channels for God's healing power. In Deuteronomy 7:13 Moses comments that God will bless the oil of a righteous person. Science has now found this to literally be true.
