Ty Bollinger: If you’re interested in essential oils, you’re in for a real treat. When it comes to essential oils, Dr. Eric Zielinski is the person you want to listen to. In this video, Eric talks about the 3 powerful ways to use essential oils.
Charlene Bollinger: Essential oils can be a powerful medicine when they’re used properly. Watch as Eric gives you his top tips for using essential oils safely in your everyday life.
Dr. Eric Zielinski: I want to park here for a moment, because this is where it gets really serious. For people that have ever been abused, for people that have been traumatized, because I don’t know about you, but every time I walk by a woman who wears the same perfume as my first girlfriend 20 years ago, I remember her. Anyone can relate to that? I literally see her. I haven’t talked to her in 20 years. Becky, hi, if you’re watching, cool. I think of you every time I smell it, it’s Obsession, that perfume Obsession. Every time. Yeah exactly.
So, you could use aromatherapy to trigger something good, or it can also trigger something bad. God forbid you had a traumatic event, you were traumatized, you were abused, and there was a smell in that room or in that area, you smell that again 10, 15 years ago, it could cause a post-traumatic stress response.
But you can also retrace. So, the nice thing and the powerful thing is for those of you who are trying to use aromatherapy, who are trying to use natural remedies, imagine creating your safe haven. Alright? This is my golden tip of the day: create your safe house.
Imagine you’re doing something good for yourself, whether it’s cooking, whether it’s making your own DIY products, whatever it might be. Imagine you create the ambience, which includes smell. Let’s say you like orange. Great, I like orange too. Get your diffuser, kick in with some orange, maybe a drop of vanilla, you’ve got this nice creamsicle smell going on, and now you’re doing your natural holistic therapy.
Maybe you’re doing a detox bath. Maybe it’s whatever it is that will remind you in your body “this is what we smelled and we got better.”
Why aren’t more counselors doing this? I’ll bet you more marriages would be saved if we actually used these sorts of things more, right? Imagine you get in an argument with your spouse and you put on the aromatherapy diffuser of the same scent that you used when you were just under therapy two weeks ago. Why not? It literally will work, it can work.
So topical use, very effective. Dilute, dilute, dilute!
And organoleptic evaluation, I can’t forget this. How does your body respond? Meaning taste, smell experience. So, you can give me the purest essential oil on the planet, right now in front of me, open up the bottle, I smell it, I get a headache. That’s my body’s response to it.
It could be a number of reasons why. My body’s biochemistry at this moment, whether stress, anxiety, maybe because I just ate whenever a non-organic GMO-filled burger. I don’t know, I don’t do that, by the way. But what happens if you’re changing your biochemistry? Maybe you just had a horrible argument with your boss and you smell something and your chemistry just didn’t jive? That’s your organoleptic evaluation. You want to know how your body responds to something, you want to taste it.
So, what I recommend for topical use, you do a skin patch test, just like how you were to do—you know how your carpet cleaner always says, “Hey, you test a little piece of your carpet first before you stain the whole thing.” Same thing with essential oils.
You do it highly diluted, and again you get the book, I go all through the charts, you get one percent dilution, very diluted, put a little dab on the back of your hand and watch what happens.
People that will have an adverse reaction—it’ll come up with eruptions, it’ll burn, it’ll itch, whatever it might be. That’s a sign that your body shouldn’t be using that particular oil. This is standard, folks. Has anyone ever heard about organoleptic evaluation? This is standard aromatherapy. Why aren’t you doing that with all your supplements? Why aren’t you doing that with all your drugs? I get it, organic, non-GMO, perfect pure everything, but if I take a probiotic and if I get bloating, if I don’t feel good, I’m not going to take the rest of the bottle.
Think about that. Does that make sense? Literally every time you buy a new essential oil bottle you have to do this. You have to smell it, you have to put in your diffuser. Put one or two drops in your diffuser, let it run for five minutes, do a skin patch test and see why this is literally medicine. We have friends that are using essential oils to cure themselves of cancer. This is legitimate medicine, just like your probiotics are, and your multis, and whatever it is that you’re taking. Okay? So that’s a side note, side tip.
Test the stuff. That’s really, really important.
Inhalation, just standard what you would think of as aromatherapy. There’s a variety of ways, those reed diffusers, those of you who got blessed by the Healing Strong aromatherapy necklaces, anything any way that you can enjoy what is known as the inhalation benefit of the oils. And these things, I’m telling you something, this is cool, there is a defined effect within, science has proven this, there is a defined effect within about one or two hours. And then after two hours the effect is gone. You don’t see that with drugs. You see biochemical buildup, right?
I missed this point, but to go back to topical use, literally applying essential oils over the abdomen, which is by the way one of the best places to put it, not the bottoms of the feet, when you apply to the abdomen, research has suggested and actually proven that the chemicals in the oils will be in your bloodstream within five minutes. Five minutes. I mean just think about the patch, right? Think about your transdermal patches for nicotine and things. Same thing with essential oils, alright? So, I love that.
Inhalation benefit. There are so many different ways. Organoleptic evaluation, again smell it, simply just smell it. If you open up the bottle and if it’s good, good. If it’s not, return it. Most companies will say “Okay, we understand.” And here’s something interesting, and I get this a lot, just because the brand is good doesn’t mean every part of every oil is going to work for you every time. I don’t know if that makes sense. But you could buy your starter kit, and 15 out of the 20 oils work great with you but five don’t. That’s fine, that’s life, really. We have to roll with those punches, okay?
Internal use. This is the most controversial aspect of aromatherapy. Here’s the bottom line. The number one market that uses essential oils on the planet is the food industry. Everything you taste, whether it’s a peppermint patty, whether it’s your soda pop. What you think Coca-Cola is? It’s a special blend of highly, highly diluted essential oils that people have enjoyed for all these years. Essential oils, okay? So, it is safe. It’s all a matter of doing it right and dosages.
So, I’m not just going to put 15 drops of oil in my mouth. I could burn the mucous membranes, I could cause reflux, there’s so many different things, okay? That’s why I cover it in my book, literally a whole chapter devoted just to safety stuff. We’ve got to remember oils and water don’t mix.
So, I do this though. My favorite, because I used to love soda pop, my favorite is to get some liquid stevia, because it’s an alcohol extract which acts as an emulsifier, which helps water and oil mix. I’ll add a drop of orange, a dropper, because I’m a stevia junkie, a whole dropper of stevia, mix that up and then I pour in my sparkling water. That’s my soda pop, been doing that for years.
That’s safe. It’s not going to burn me because I am emulsifying it; I’m diluting it. Otherwise the oils are going to be on top. Okay, just think about that.
So, before you put oils, and I love it because I talk about in my book, a detox bath, which is fantastically important for cancer patients especially, because I’m telling you folks, you need self-care, we all need self-care. Especially—who’s a care provider here? Who helps people? Actually, you guys deserve a round of applause, if you help someone, if you care for someone.
You’re the unsung heroes. I ran into a store—sir thank you for what you do. I mean I ran into a store and I saw my old professor from school, it was actually a few months ago, and she had to get away, she’s caring for her dying aunt who’s 90 years old, and she is the primary care for her aunt, and she is “I had to get away.” Like she has been doing this 24 hours 7 days a week and she’s like “I just got to go away and just a little me time.”
There’s nothing wrong with that, don’t feel that’s selfish, that’s a lie from the pit of hell. You need a little me time because you need to be filled up to fill others, amen.
And when you’re doing your detox bath, don’t be pouring oils on the water. You’ve got to mix and dilute them first, because what’s the first thing that hits the bottom of the water? You can burn yourself. I’m telling you it happens. You don’t think about this stuff, okay? So not another shameless plug for my book, but you’ve got to download this, because I’m going to run through five or six slides that you don’t need to take notes. But it’s going to kind of wow you, okay, so make sure you get this.
So, the proven approaches, absolutely proven approaches of how to use essential oils for cancer patients. Number one is promote the immune system essentially. Gut function, few things on the planet can really, really do some good work in the gut. Remember that the gut is the distal colon, it’s hard to get these things down, it’s hard to get a supplement down there, it’s hard—I mean there’s a variety of different things that affect the body’s ability to have good gut function. And gut function, I know you know this, is crucial to the immune system. Essential oils are fantastic for gut function and immune-boosting, literally immune-boosting, it could do a lot of things.
And it could help fight. It can help fight vectors, they help fight fungi. I mean who would have thought? That discussion was unbelievable. You guys heard about, I mean wow, antifungal oils, right? Tea tree, lavender, thyme, oregano, name it, lemongrass.
We don’t hear enough about lemongrass, that’s like an MVP. These are fantastically effective antifungals.
Respiratory support. How many cancer patients just are struggling with breathing issues? That’s an interesting complaint because you want to have vibrant energy, you want to be able to breathe better. Diffusing your ravensara or your peppermint, eucalyptus can help really just open up the airways better, just for a variety of different things, to help you sleep better, to help increase your mood, everything from pain to just nausea, to you name it.
But the bottom two are kind of special, and I want to define these really quick. The bottom two literally proven that essential oils are chemoprotective and chemotherapeutic. And it’s important to understand the difference because chemoprotective is actually, the pure definition, the real definition is “protects healthy tissues from the toxic effects of anti-cancer drugs.” Essential oils have been shown to do that. So, when you’re taking essential oils with your chemotherapy, they have what’s known as as cell selectivity.
Which means they can help target cancer cells and leave your healthy cells alone, and in fact, give your healthy cells what the healthy cells need to ward off the basic nuclear attack, right? That’s what chemotherapy is. Same thing with radiation. And also, they’re chemotherapeutic, they literally can kill cancer cells and they can cause what’s known as apoptosis, right, programmed cell death.
