Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and Optimal Health

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are the volatile liquids of a plant. They are obtained from properly distilling any part of the plant including the seeds, roots, bark, stems, leaves, fruit, flowers, or branches.

The essential oils and blends sold by OHN offer many benefits:

  • They are safe and easy to use in a variety of ways. They can be diffused, applied topically, and taken both orally and as rectal implants.
  • They can be used to support healthy body functions and to address specific health concerns.
  • They are able to cross the blood-brain barrier and reach the amygdala and other limbic parts of the brain that help to support emotional health.

General dosage guidelines for using essential oils:

You will experience the greatest healing benefits from the oils if you use them both orally and in the colon. Use 3-10 drops orally, once or twice a day. Use 3-20 drops in your enema and/or suppository. You can use the oils in the colon as often as twice a day. You can also rub the oils on the back of the neck or along the spine.

Therapeutic-grade essential oils may be superior to other supplements because they contain the life source of the plant and have no additives or fillers.

IMPORTANT CAUTIONS & DISCLAIMERS

We strongly advise you to consult with your medical doctor or a knowledgeable health practitioner before using any essential oils internally. While all oils and oil blends sold by Optimal Health Network are certified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA with very few reports of ill effects, working with a healthcare professional is highly recommended to ensure a safe and optimal program for your individual body.

When planning to introduce a new essential oil into your healthcare program, test one drop on a small patch of skin first (e.g., on the underside of the forearm). Sensitivity to particular essential oils is highly individual. If the skin feels hot or turns red, this indicates sensitivity, and this essential oil or blend should NOT be used in your healthcare program. Apply a vegetable oil (e.g., olive or almond) to the area, which will dilute the essential oil. Washing with water is less effective.

Apply only one new essential oil or blend at a time to the patch of skin to determine how your body responds. Wait 30 minutes before testing another new essential oil.

DO NOT attempt to self-diagnose or prescribe any natural substances for health conditions that require professional attention. Consult your healthcare professional about any serious disease, medical condition, or injury, or if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant.

DO NOT use wild tansy, clary sage, sage, fennel, wintergreen, or hyssop essential oils during pregnancy.

Keep essential oils out of reach of children.


LATEX ENEMA BAGS: Do not use essential oils in latex (rubber) enema bags. Essential oils degrade latex over time. Use essential oils only in silicone, stainless steel, or plastic enema equipment.
