Australian Essential Oils for Health & Well-being

Australian Essential Oils far outway the ones that most Australian’s buy in the supermarket.
OH! that will do, for Health, cleaning and for the first aid cabinet.
Education about what you actually need is a priority.

Fact or Fiction?   TV now warns us of the ‘Superbug” resistant to drugs. MRSA.
Some and only sum pure, unadulterated Essential Oils are not resistant.

Just the words Tea Tree and Eucalyptus do not mean what you think they mean.
Unless you see the BOTANICAL NAME.
Other than that they may smell nice and may just kill something or another:
Non Botanical Named Oils are OK for cleaning although will still have an affect your health.

Learn first to seek the purpose, then seek your solution.
Plug ins and candles are nice, yet pure essential oils have a different purpose.
Heating of essential oils can also destroy the healing benefits of the molecular structure.

Please, if  this means anything to you and your family then look for the Botanical Name, because if it does not have one what are you risking?

Australian Essential Oil Native History

Australian Indigenous Settlement

Australian Essential Oil History
Tribute to  Traditional Owners – First, Native Nation

Contrary to the world’s belief and the little known fact, Australian Indigenous – Aboriginal peoples had the first natural medicine trading industry in Australia. They taught our early settlers how to use their medicine to heal wounds, colds, sore muscles, skin problems and very beneficial insect repellants.
Our traditional people were the first in the world to have used essential oils. Seven thousand years before the Egyptians.  Dated and recorded, yet not acknowledged, as promised, by our government.

Recorded evidence and around 4,000 artefacts were given by the Bundjalung People around Coraki in NSW.  This  substantially proved they actually distilled and traded TEA TREE up and down the east coast of Australia, with other traditional peoples using other essential oils, such as many different Eucalyptus Oils.  Our Tea Tree Oil  along with Eucalyptus oil, are still in the Top 5 medicinal oils in the world. May I repeat: Seven thousand years before the Egyptians.

Which Essential Oil and Why?

Which Essential Oil?  What Type and why?

 As Facebook displayed “Happy Earth Day” today the picture is quite apt for me. The watering can and a plant growing, leaves flying around AND they look like Eucalyptus Leaves. BUT which Eucalyptus? My inquiring mind set to work.

With over 700 species of eucalyptus, as well as chemical types, common names and different parts of the plant being marketed, it is no wonder that people are so confused!  And, on top of it, most companies are labeling the oil all under the same genus of Eucalyptus.
Now that is not only confusing, but misleading!

Most choose Aroma for smell, whereas Aromatherapy, choose products for well-being therapy.
The THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS of all essential oils are to do just that, benefit ailments.
Therapeutic Grade is only American marketing hype as is organic and pure.
This applies to ANY Essential Oil regardless of brand. Fragrance oils are not rated.

‘Pure What’ , ‘Rated What’, we must ask, as everything we smell has an impact on our health and well-being.

Think of the ABOVE, before you think about the price

 

Think of BELOW to understand the basics for your Health & Well-Being.

What is in a candle, what is in incense , what is in a spray, what is in essential oils – chemicals. Good or Bad, your health is your choice. Connect with the earth today, HUG A TREE or a PLANT because they are natures medicine.
1) What is the Botanical Name? Important-Eucalyptus Which one?
2) What is the Country of Origin   – Climate and soil
3) What is the Chemical Type  – Therapeutic properties i.e. Immuno-stimulant
4) What is the Chemical Profile – The actual chemical percentages
The time of day and how the oil is processed can also change chemical profile.
5) As previously explained in the 5 Pillars of health, this IS number 5.  It is up to us, the consumer, to know our own health profile and our own medications and/or supplements lists first. Then look at the precautions for each oil.

Suggestions of ingesting should only be made by a Qualified Professional who also understands YOUR specific Number 5.

“Happy Earth Day” my friends, don’t forget, HUG a TREE on any day!
