SESQUITERPENES

Sesquiterpenes are one of the classifications of molecules found in essential oils. Their configuration makes it easy for them to cross the blood/brain barrier. This barrier is the membrane between the blood and the brain that prevents certain damaging substances from reaching the brain tissue and the cerebrospinal fluid. It maintains the integrity of the whole central nervous system. Sesquitperpenes have the ability to help delete (scrub and vacuum) the bad information stored in the cellular memory.

Oils High in Sesquiterpenes Include:
Cedarwood 95%
Patchouli 85%
Sandalwood 83%
Ginger 77%
Myrrh 65%
Vetiver 59%
Chaste tree 58%
German chamomile 54%
Black pepper 53%
Spikenard 52%
Ylang ylang 48%
Frankincense only contains 8% sesquiterpenes. However, frankincense has a significant amount of monoterpenes and a host of other very important components which carry into the cells and across the blood/brain barrier with the sesquiterpenes of frankincense.

Minerals and Nutrition
by Sharon Moran
Butterfly Expressions, LLC

 

Every day, 24/7, your body is working to produce skin, muscles, and bones. Every 90 days it completely replenishes your red blood cells that are needed to carry oxygen and nutrition to every cell in your body. It is continually producing hormones, which act as "messengers" within the body for all of your body's organs to maintain and sustain your life.

Your body requires raw materials to perform these miracles. Included in this list of necessary ingredients are minerals that the body uses to perform very specific functions. These minerals are essential to be consumed as the body can not manufacture them on its own. Every body function requires some mineral to perform properly.

Some minerals (and vitamins) are often called micronutrients. Your body needs only small amounts of some of these. Failing to get even this small quantity virtually guarantees a nutritional deficiency or disease. Some minerals, such as potassium and calcium, are needed in fairly large amounts. On the other hand, getting sufficient quantities of minerals and micronutrients can provide a substantial benefit for the body.

Minerals are inorganic and hold on to their chemical structure. This means that minerals located in the soil (or not, if the soil is depleted) can make their way into the system.

Many nutrients interact with each other and are necessary to be present at the same time within the system for their absorption and utilization. Vitamin D enables your body to absorb and utilize calcium. Potassium is quickly absorbed into the blood stream where it is circulated freely and excreted by the kidneys.

Water Oz is a company which makes ionic mineral solutions. These solutions have a smaller molecule size than colloidal solutions, making the minerals more available for absorption by the cells. These liquid minerals are often a great source of supplementation. If the diet is lacking in nutritional content, absorption is limited or for any other reason, these liquid minerals are helpful for restoring the mineral balance the body needs to perform its daily functions to the best of its ability.

LeDelicate

GENERAL INFORMATION: Formerly Butterfly Express, llc sold two separate blends for hair health. They were very similar and have now been reformulated into one blend. This new blend retained the name, LeDelicate, because it was so similar to the original LeDelicate blend. In fact, it required only the addition of basil to complete the properties necessary to duplicate the dandruff fighting properties of the former dandruff blend LeDandy. Spanish Sage replaces the sage that was formerly used in both blends.

Spanish sage is slightly milder than sage and has some delicious lavender overtones. It is advised to intersperse treatment of the hair and scalp with LeDelicate and LeEternity (as was recommended when using LeDandy). LeEternity aids the absorption of the nutrients that are vital to hair health and is soothing to the scalp.

INGREDIENTS: basil, cypress, lavender, rosemary, spanish sage, thyme

AFFINITY FOR: hair, scalp, skin

RESONANCE: physical

APPLICATION: LeDelicate can be applied by adding 3-4 drops to shampoo when washing your hair. For hair loss, try placing 3-4 drops of LeDelicate in your conditioner. Leave the conditioner/ LeDelicate blend in your hair and wrap entire head in a warm towel for 10-15 minutes. Afterwards rinse hair gently. This process should be repeated several times a week until the problem has disappeared.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: The aroma of this blend that remains in the hair after use is pleasant and has an uplifting effect on the mind and the spirit.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeDelicate is a wonderful blend for overall hair health. It seems to help the scalp absorb nutrients making the hair more healthy and vibrant with each use. LeDelicate adds attractive natural highlights. For babies with cradle cap, LeDelicate, diluted with almond oil, should be massaged gently into the scalp. Use a very soft brush to dislodge the scaly patches and then rinse or wipe away gently. Use a good quality lotion or LeBaby Me in carrier oil to soothe the baby's scalp after this treatment.

LeStefanie

INGREDIENTS: cinnamon berry, cumin, helichrysum, manuka, melissa, oregano wild, spruce, valerian, yarrow

AFFINITY FOR: immune system, respiratory system, nervous system

RESONANCE: physical, emotional, spiritual

APPLICATION: LeStefanie should be applied on the chest, back, and on the feet. It can also be diffused or inhaled.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: LeStefanie is balancing and uplifting to the emotions. The melissa in this blend adds a light, lemony scent.

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: The high percentage of melissa in this blend makes it uniquely effective for instilling a positive mental outlook on life and for improving oneâ??s ability to enjoy life to the fullest.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeStefanie was developed to help fight antibiotic resistant pseudomonas bacteria, especially in the lungs. This blend has a great affinity for the entire respiratory system. LeStefanie should be considered for any respiratory problem, such as asthma, bronchitis, chest colds, or flu.

The melissa oil used in this blend is one of the strongest antiviral, antibacterial essential oils in the essential oil repertory. This blend is anti-infective, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, sedative, antidepressant, and mucolytic.

LeWarm Down

INGREDIENTS: basil, cypress, fir, lavender, marjoram, wintergreen

AFFINITY FOR: muscles, bones, respiratory system

RESONANCE: physical

APPLICATION: LeWarmDown should be applied, diluted, to any area of the body where there are sore or strained muscles. This blend makes an excellent massage oil. It is often used in conjunction with LePaine, and if there is structural misalignment, LeMillenia is added to the regimen.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: LeWarmDown has an underlying aroma of "black licorice." It is the aroma of basil and is wonderful if you happen to like black licorice. If you find this aroma offensive, try LeTendaCare instead.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeWarmDown is antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory. This makes it an excellent remedy for tight, tired, sore, and aching muscles of any description. This blend is often reached for with sports injuries, muscle strains and sprains, and for torn ligaments.

LeWarmDown seems to aid calcium absorption and distribution throughout the body. This makes it useful for charley horses and the leg cramps during pregnancy. The regular use of LeWarmDown can slow the progress of osteoporosis by improving calcium absorption.

LeWarmDown makes an excellent massage oil for back and joint pain. It often relieves stress headaches, where tight muscles in the neck and shoulders are contributing factors. LeWarmDown increases capillary circulation and protects the skin by helping it to retain moisture.

Clary Sage

(Salvia sclarea)

INGREDIENT IN: LeBalance, LeExhilaration, LeMoonlight, LeTomorrow, LeVictory, LeWoman Wise

THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES: regulates cells and balances hormones, antiseptic, calming, emmenagogue, anti-infective, antispasmodic, antisudorific, aphrodisiac, nerve tonic, estrogen-like properties

AFFINITY FOR: digestive system, respiratory system, hormone balance, spleen meridian, governing vessel meridian, supports yang energy and moderates yin energy

RESONANCE: physical, emotional

PLANT FAMILY: Labiatae

PART UTILIZED: whole plant when flowering

EXTRACTION METHOD: steam distilled

APPLICATION: Dilute well and apply to the feet or on the body.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: The aroma of clary sage promotes confidence and clarity about what you want your life to be.

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: The emotional actions of clary sage are explained by the balance it establishes between stimulation and relaxation (yang and yin). Clary sage calms tension, nervousness, and hypersensitivity, yet revives and revitalizes us when we are fatigued.

Clary sage is a good oil for those who, when overtired, become hypersensitive and either weep or find fault with everyone around them. It is also a good choice for people whose lives show a pattern of continually choosing the wrong kind of friends. The aroma of clary sage calms the nerves and enhances the dream state of sleep. It brings about feelings of contentment.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Clary sage moderates excessive estrogen and yin energy. It is very effective for PMS, menstrual problems and cramping, infertility, frigidity and impotence, and some of the difficulties experienced during menopause. An excess of estrogen is linked to several womenâ??s cancers.

Clary sage is useful in kidney infections, sore throat, and bronchial infections. It strengthens cellular structure and regulates cellular activity. It is an excellent oil, especially as part of a blend, for muscular fatigue and excessive perspiration.

CAUTIONS: Clary sage has a lower percentage of thujone than does common sage (Salvia officinalis). Clary sage is completely safe for most people in most applications when used in normal dosages. However, clary sage has a strong action on hormones and should be used with extreme caution during pregnancy. Clary sage is not to be used with children because of these hormonal properties.

Eucalyptus glob.

(Eucalyptus globulus)

INGREDIENT IN: LeBreezey, LeDeeper, LeDeliverance, LePaine, LeRefreshMint, LeTendaCare

THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES: anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, balsamic, expectorant, antibiotic, antifungal, febrifuge, anti-infective, antiparasitic, antineuralgia, pectoral

GENERAL INFORMATION: I do not recommend taking essential oils internally, but I want to issue a particular warning about all varieties of eucalyptus. They should not be taken internally. The literature around the world and in most schools of thought about essential oils agree that eucalyptus is toxic when taken internally. Nevertheless, the FDA (what do they know about this kind of thing?) have approved it for use as a dietary supplement. You can do most anything with the topical application of an essential oil that you would hope to do with internal consumption. Please be sensible and cautious about the internal use of any essential oil, especially with children, and do not take or administer eucalyptus oils internally at all.

AFFINITY FOR: endocrine system, muscles, yin energy, respiratory system, bones, brow chakra

RESONANCE: physical, emotional

PLANT FAMILY: Myrtaceae

PART UTILIZED: leaves

EXTRACTION METHOD: steam distilled

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: Eucalyptus is energizing and promotes feelings of steadfastness and confidence in oneself. The aroma of eucalyptus can help us release resentment calmly, without the usual explosions of temper and hostility. Eucalyptus, diffused, purifies the air.

APPLICATION: Eucalyptus should be applied to the feet, and on areas where anti-inflammatory properties are needed. Eucalyptus, or a blend containing it, can be diluted and applied to the chest for respiratory congestion and infections. If used in small amounts, eucalyptus makes a good addition to massage oils. Eucalyptus applied under and on each side of the nose brings quick relief for clogged sinus cavities.

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Eucalyptus helps us find our survivor spirit. Eucalyptus taps into the inner strength in each of us. It can help us develop unfaltering faith in ourselves and in divine assistance. Eucalyptus strips away doubt about our abilities, removes negativity and hesitation, and pushes us forward. Eucalyptus calms our spirits and opens our minds to see the way ahead clearly.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Eucalyptus is a very versatile and useful essential oil. It can be used to cool the body in summer and protect us from bacteria and viruses in the winter. Eucalyptus is useful for bronchitis, colds, flu, asthma, and any problem in the respiratory system. Eucalyptus is one of the best oils for bringing down a fever. It is a strong analgesic. It can be applied alone or as part of a blend for muscle aches and headaches. Eucalyptus alleviates mental exhaustion and stabilizes blood sugar levels in both hypoglycemia and diabetes. Well diluted, eucalyptus is good for skin rashes and makes a very good energizing massage oil. Eucalyptus becomes more antiseptic with age, if it has been stored and handled properly.

CAUTIONS: Eucalyptus can be caustic to the skin if used undiluted. Not to be taken internally.

Patchouli

(Pogostemon cablin)

INGREDIENT IN: LeBountiful, LeExhilaration, LeFocus, LeInsideOut, LeMoonlight, LeNoMore, LeRefreshMint, LeSynopsis, LeTranquility, LeWoman Wise

THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES: anti-inflammatory, tissue regenerative, tonic, cytophylactic, antiseptic, decongestant, antibiotic, antifungal, antidepressant, aphrodisiac, astringent, calmative, nervine

AFFINITY FOR: reproductive system, hormones, urinary tract, liver, yang energy, sacral chakra, stomach meridian

RESONANCE: physical, emotional

PLANT FAMILY: Labiatae

PART UTILIZED: leaves, flowers

EXTRACTION METHOD: steam distilled

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: The aroma of patchouli oil is very calming and centering. It helps bring about a cooperative effort between your heart and your head. Self-imposed barriers and limitations seem to melt away. Patchouli can relieve anxiety, fear, and indecision.

APPLICATION: Patchouli is a great skin oil. Dilute and apply it everywhere!

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Patchouli encourages us to dream of new horizons and work toward new goals. Patchouli is a vital ingredient in any essential oil blend that targets our perspective on money, material possessions, or lack of abundance issues of any kind.

Patchouli is especially suited to people with strong constitutions who rarely pay any attention to their health as they pursue their material goals. Almost without warning, they eventually collapse, both mentally and physically. Patchouli is a valuable aid to their recovery and helps them achieve a balance in their lives that prevents a reoccurrence of this pattern.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Patchouli is an oil I have come to love for its effect on physical exhaustion and chronic fatigue. Patchouli is a tissue regenerating oil. It aids with scarring, rashes, eczema, and bacterial and fungal infections. Patchouli is especially good for vaginal infections such as candida and others.

Patchouli essential oil improves hormone balance and aids the liver and kidneys by discharging toxins. Patchouli can help with constipation when the emotional roots are holding on to every material thing and element of safety that we can.

This essential oil has been used in programs for substance addiction. It is a very good oil for chapped skin, athleteâ??s feet, ringworm, and weeping wounds. Patchouliâ??s affinity for liver function makes it a valuable oil for allergies and mild autoimmune disorders.
