Tips to Clean Your Home With Essential Oils
Have you ever noticed that ALL your commercial cleaning products list “warning” or “caution” labels on the bottles? Obviously, those labels are put there for a very good reason. The bottles DO contain poison and can cause adverse symptoms if inhaled or touched. Yikes!
Here’s where we can shift to a new concept of cleaning, without worry of chemicals, fumes, or synthetics harming our bodies. Essential oils are the best kept secret for cleaning and purifying your environment.
Amazingly, essential oils are just as powerful as conventional cleaners.
It’s very simple and a lot less expensive when you use essential oils instead of store-bought regular cleaners. The essential oils in this article anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. And the best part is they are 100% safe and even good for you! Conventional cleaners can’t say that.
Using the highest quality therapeutic grade essential oils is of utmost importance. Poor quality oils are not effective in killing germs, nor are they safe to use in the ways I describe in this article.
Here are a few ways to achieve a healthy, clean home using essential oils.
If you mop your floors
(tile, wood, laminate, marble) -- replace your floor cleaner and use a bucket of water with 10-20 drops of Lemon and/or Lavender essential oils. Research has shown that lemon and lavender essential oils kill many strains of bacteria. And it’s completely safe to inhale and walk upon!
If you steam or Roomba your floors
(tile, wood, laminate, marble) -- walk through the house and drop a few drops of Lemon and/or Lavender essential oils in various places. Especially by the front door, garbage can area, bathrooms and kitchen. As you steam the floor, the essential oils will be dispersed by the steamer or roomba, killing bacteria, mold and viruses in the process.
If you vacuum your floors
- put 5 drops of Lemon and/or Lavender essential oil on a tissue and vacuum it up. This will kill the germs that get sucked up in your vacuum and also diffuse the oils into your home leaving it smelling wonderful!
To have a clean air environment, get rid of that air freshener that’s plugged into your wall! Its fragrance is definitely not of therapeutic value. Use a few drops of Thieves or Purification essential oil blends on a cotton ball and place it in your AC vent. Both of these blends were formulated to kill airborne bacteria, viruses, mold and fungus. They also neutralize smoke and pet odors.
Or better yet, get yourself a cold air diffuser and diffuse either of these essential oils every day.
To make a chemical free, germ-killing hand wash, use up the remainder of your foaming hand wash and save the bottle. Now, fill it 1/8th full with Dr. Bronners liquid castile soap (or organic dish washing soap.) Fill the rest with spring water. Add 10 drops of Flu Buster essential oil. Shake well and use at the kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Loose your Purell and get a bottle of Lemon essential oil. Rub 1 drop of Lemon essential oil into hands after using public restrooms. Lemon essential oil kills germs while uplifting your mood as well. What a bonus!
See how just a few changes in your cleaning routine can easily replace a bunch of chemical cleaning products in your home? I suggest starting slow by eliminating one cleaning product per week and incorporating an essential oil in its place. Soon you will be truly “greener” than anyone else you know and probably a bit healthier, too!

Nikola Tesla (July 10, 1856 c. January 7, 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, physicist, mechanical engineer and electrical engineer. Tesla is recognized among the most accomplished scientists of the late 19th and early 20th century. His patents and theoretical work form the basis of modern alternating current electric power (AC) systems, including the polyphase power distribution system and AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.
Tesla experimented with electromagnetic flux and studied the earth’s gravitational field. During his research he discovered that the ionization of the atmosphere would alter when it was charged by radio wave transmissions in the low frequency range of 10 to 80 hertz. Tesla also discovered that he could cause both positive and negative ionization of the atmosphere by manipulating the radio frequency. Further studies indicated that with positive ionization, people and animals became tired and lethargic and with negative ionization the effect was one of feeling active and energetic.
These air ions are important to you because if they have a high proportion of negative ions in the clusters you will feel lively, uplifted and enthusiastic. Too many positive ions in the clusters will have you feeling depressed, lethargic and full of aches, pains and complaints.
It is estimated that there are normally 1,500 to 4,000 ions per cubic centimeter. Negative ions are exceedingly mobile and the Earth’s surface has a negative charge; therefore, negative ions are repelled from the Earth. This repulsion creates a normal ratio of positive to negative ions in the range of twelve to ten. Normally, more positive than negative ions exist.
Negative ions are exceedingly beneficial for a person’s metabolism as a means of enhancing human behavior. They act in a complex mechanism to bring about hormone and biochemical reactions in the body and brain. It is impossible to get an overdose of negative ions, which act like pure water in washing away dirty poisons. Generally, the more negative ions you are exposed to, the better and more uplifted you feel.
Positive ions or the lack of negative ions may cause serotonin hyperfunction syndrome or “irritation syndrome” and it involves sleeplessness, irritability, tension, migraine, nausea, heart palpitations, hot flashes with sweating or chills, tremor and dizziness. The elderly become depressed, apathetic and extremely fatigued.
Human mood disorders (depressions) are effectively treated with drugs which specifically block the re-uptake of serotonin into the presynaptic axon terminal, for example fluoxetine (Prozac) and Zoloft. This suggests that positive ions may play a part in this condition and the condition may be safely treated with negative ion therapy.
Just as good benefits are provided by immersing yourself in negative ions, bad effects come from breathing air with a high density of positive ions. Before a storm the positive ion concentration becomes more than three times the amount of negative ions. If the barometer is falling in anticipation of a storm, brace yourself. Adults, children, and animals alike react testily to such bad weather, for ahead is the kind of day that may leave you most prone to illness or accident, stupid mistakes and irrational anger. Simply, positive ions are responsible. The full moon increases positive ion ratios, which accounts for the strange and aggressive behavior noted by police and medical services. Studies show that 75% of the population is noticeably and adversely affected by positive ion ratios, while increased negative ions tend to have a calming influence on these same people.
There is an impressive amount of evidence that connects low barometric pressure before storms with erratic behavior. This is a time where the positive ions in the air outnumber the negative ions by a ratio of over three to one. More suicide attempts take place, greater numbers and more serious accidents occur on the highways and in factories, and an elevated incidence of fainting spells seem to beset people. An analysis of the records of some 2000 public school students showed that their “conduct” marks sagged noticeably before a storm.
Positive ion air encourages increased physical discomforts ranging from headaches and nausea to the familiar rheumatic twinges that precede storms. Even the healing rate of wounds has been known to slow up, while the risk of infection accelerates. Tension and depression are certainly more common
Conversely, negative ion air -- when the weather is quite comfortable -- not only stimulates morale but actually relieves certain chronic diseases. Experiments with negative ionization have shown marked improvement for sufferers from high blood pressure, asthma, and hay fever.
Many psychiatrists agree that positive ionization contributes to the cracking of “fringe personalities,” and sets off some mental conditions. On summer dog days, when the positive ion index climbs, more neurotics slip across into pathological psychosis than at other times. The incidence of sex crimes rise, as do all categories of property and personal crimes. Increased incidence of violence, road rage, theft, bank robberies, and shoplifting become serious commercial and cultural problems.
Frequencies of Essential Oils (Part One)
Frequencies of the Human Body in Hz
Georges Lakhovsky discovered that all living cells (plants, people, bacteria, parasites, etc) possess attributes which are normally associated with electronic circuits. Dr. Royal R. Rife found that every disease has a specific frequency and that certain frequencies can prevent the development of disease. Professor Harold Saxton Burr showed that these L-Fields could be used to predict illness by noting variations in them. Dr. Reinhold Voll identified correlations between disease states and changes in the electrical resistance of the various acupuncture points. German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp found that diseased cells will radiate a different photonic signature than healthy cells of the same type. Dr. Robert O. Becker found the human body has an electrical frequency and that much about a person’s health can be determined and influenced by it.
Circadian Rhythm -- Body Clock
Our body’s biological functions work much like a finely tuned watch: Every part works in unison to keep the body in homeostasis (maintenance of the internal environment within tolerable limits). However, when one working part doesn’t function normally, it tends to disrupt many other vital parts and can upset homeostasis. Our circadian rhythm is best described as an internal biological clock that regulates our body functions, based on our wake/sleep cycle. Circadian rhythms are not only important in determining sleep cycles but also in feeding patterns. There are clear patterns of brain wave activity, hormone production, cell regeneration, and other biological activities linked to these daily cycles.
Every cell in the body vibrates at a certain frequency and groups of cells, which form together make bodily systems such as organs, have their own particular frequency, i.e. a healthy liver has a frequency of 55 to 60Hz.
Every object on this planet, still or alive, has an electrical frequency that can be measured accurately. Electrical frequency is being measured by counting of the number of occurrences of a repeating current flow per second. This unit is called Hertz (Hz).
What Does Hertz Mean?
All atoms in the universe have vibrational motion. Each periodic motion has a frequency, (the number of oscillations per second), measured in Hertz:
- 1 Hertz (Hz) = 1 oscillation per second (ops)
- 1 Kilo Hertz (KHz) = 1,000 ops
- 1 Mega Hertz (MHz) = 1,000,000 ops or 1 million
- 1 Giga Hertz (GHz) = 1,000,000,000 ops or 1 billion
Some people might ask how come a living organism like the human being has measurable frequencies. The definite answer is how is it possible that human beings would NOT radiate in certain frequencies? The human body is a radiant machine. Every living element in our body radiates. Our brain operates on electrical current, our ears absorb sounds vibrations, and we produce voices and temperature.
Living organisms have measurable frequencies on various levels from the entire body down to the cellular level. That fact has enabled scientist to conduct researches on humans and map their frequencies. It turned out quite clearly that there are frequency differences in healthy humans in comparison to ill ones. Biophoton emissions will vary according to the functional state of the organism. If a disease such as cancer affects certain cells they will radiate a different photonic signature than healthy cells of the same type. In this way biophotons can be a noninvasive tool for assessing the state of health or vitality.
More over scientists discovered that each illness has different frequency that is always within a definite range. During the first steps of that line of research those results were considered as a new diagnostic discovery, yet as the research progressed and researches started running frequency measures on human cells, it turned out that those cells also reacted to direct external light and sound frequencies. The most incredible discovery was that ill cells reacted to very precise levels of frequencies and were cured or eliminated whilst nearby healthy cells remained intact.
It has also been discovered that the general human healthy frequency is within the range of 62 -72 Hz and when it drops to lower levels it enables the appearance of variety of diseases. For example at the level of 58 Hz, diseases like cold and flu were more likely to appear. On much lower levels (42 Hz) Cancer appeared in many humans.
Any movement of an object in any frequency can be changed by an external intervention of another frequency and the frequency of the human body and its cells is of no exception. When the body becomes ill or infected, these normal frequency patterns become distorted and either increase in frequency, known as ‘hyper’ in medicine meaning “high, beyond, excessive, above normal” i.e. inflamed, on fire, irritation type conditions or decrease in frequency, known as ‘hypo’ in medical terms meaning “low, under, beneath, down, below normal” i.e. for cold, damp, degenerative conditions.
Of course the unwanted virus, toxin or infection also has its own unique frequency which can be isolated and inverted’ so it is 180° out of phase, then by delivering the inverted frequencies back to the body, it will neutralize/kill the virus, toxin or infection allowing the organ to recover and normalize therefore recovering in health. It was Dr Royal Rife who first discovered the importance of frequency.
Dr Royal Raymond Rife developed a high-powered microscope that could magnify an object almost 1,500 times. He was the first to see viruses, bacteria, parasites, toxins, etc in the blood. From this work he developed a frequency generator which could generate various electrical frequencies to be passed through an affected or diseased part of the body. It is well known that electrical currents passed through a wound or broken bone will greatly accelerate the healing process. Furthering his work, he validated certain frequencies could prevent the development of disease, and others would destroy disease.
Frequency & Health
The human body has a normal frequency range of 62 Hz to 68 Hz, as the frequency range lowers due to the constant use of alcohol or drugs, the worse the health condition becomes. When the frequency drops, the immune system is jeopardized. If it drops to 58 Hz, cold and flu symptoms start appearing, 55 Hz trigger diseases like Candida and at 52 Hz Epstein Bar virus, Cancer is at 42 Hz and below, whilst death begins at 20 Hz.
Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Cheney, Washington , developed equipment to measure the biofrequency of humans and foods. He used this biofrequency monitor to determine the relationship between frequency and disease.
The human body has an electrical frequency and that much about a person’s health can be determined by it:
Normal brain frequency (head) 72-78 Hz
Visionary Range 120 MHz
Bone 38-43 MHz
Brain frequency at 80-82 MHz indicates a genius
Healthy body (neck down) 62-68 Hz
Thyroid and Parathyroid glands 62-68 Hz
Thymus Gland 65-68 Hz
Heart 67-70 Hz
Human cells start to mutate when their frequency drops below 62 Hz
Lungs 58-65 Hz
Liver 55-60 Hz
Pancreas 60-80 Hz
Disease begins, colds invade 59-60 Hz
Stomach 58-65 Hz
Ascending Colon 58-60 Hz
Descending Colon 58-63 Hz
If the frequency drops just 4 points this is when a headache will start 58 Hz
- Disease begins, Like the cold symptoms 58 Hz
- Flu invades the body 57 Hz
- Viral Infection 55 Hz
- when more serious problems come about like pneumonia, Epstein Barr and etc. 52 Hz
- Tissue breakdown from disease 48 Hz
- Cancer can set in 42 Hz
- Death begins at 20 Hz
Invading pathogenic frequencies (toxins & viruses) are low. Positive beneficial bacterial frequencies are higher.
- Pollutants lower healthy Frequency
- Processed or canned food has a frequency of zero
- Fresh produce has up to 15 Hz
- Dry herbs from 12-22 Hz
- Fresh herbs from 20-27 Hz.
- Frozen foods have a frequency of zero
- Human Health
The use of electrical energy to reverse or eliminate disease led to research and discovery of electrical frequencies and how they can be used to regain, maintain and improve health.
There have been clinical studies conducted on the effectiveness of using the above techniques for asthma, allergies & skin disease.
Independent Clinical Trial: Success Rate
Clinical results for treatment of asthma 93.7%
Clinical results for treatment of allergic diseases 78% to 89%
Clinical results for treatment of allergic skin diseases 89.9%
Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis are common yeasts that thrive within intestines and mucous membranes. Everyone is born with Candida, even your pets.
Candida’s main function in the body is to destroy all putrefied food matter in our digestive tract before any potentially harmful bacteria can feast on it, multiply, and threaten our health.
So why do some people suffer with Candida, while others do not?
When the gastrointestinal good bacteria like acidophilus and bifido and your immune system are healthy, Candida is kept in check. But food chemicals, artificial sweeteners, and processed ingredients oils, high fructose corn syrups, sugars, and pharma-drugs cause a population burst and Candida grows out of control. Even though Candida is naturally present in the body, it can cause problems if there is an overgrowth, resulting in Candidiasis. When this happens, the yeast branches out with hardened spiny tendrils that puncture the intestinal wall, and yeast begins colonizing in other parts of your body.
It is common knowledge that prolonged use of antibiotics play a major role in the development of Candidiasis. Antibiotics eradicate bad bacteria that cause certain diseases and infections, but they also destroy the good bacteria that keep Candida under control. Prolonged use and strong doses of antibiotics can lead to an imbalance in your gut flora, allowing bad bacteria and yeast to overgrow.
If your digestion is inefficient, you aren’t properly eliminating body wastes, or your pH is too acidic, Candida can spread into your bloodstream and deposit in other tissues and mucous membranes, such as your throat (also known as thrush), nasal passages, and abdomen. You may develop: distention, constipation, allergies, skin rashes, and adult asthma symptoms. What would be normally benign yeast literally morphs into an aggressive, destructive, fungal pathogen causing a variety of health problems from head to toe, often perplexing traditional doctors.
Because Candida is naturally occurring intestinal yeast, traditional medical doctors typically do not recognize its overgrowth as a cause of endometriosis, allergies, depressed immunity, many chronic illnesses, or brain fog. Candida can spread throughout your body and even penetrate into your brain.
When doctors diagnose you with sinusitis instead of yeast in your nasal passages, they typically prescribe antibiotics. The antibiotics, in turn, kill the intestinal bacteria that controls Candida, the cause of your sinus irritation. If the Candida is not controlled, your sinus problems could continue to reoccur, creating a chronic demand for more drugs, more doctors visits, new drugs, different drugs, asthma medications, inhalers and eventually COPD oxygen ventilators and steroids simply because your sinus problems were misdiagnosed and treated incorrectly.
Before the onslaught of diet sweeteners and the insertion of over 10,000 processed food chemicals in the American food supply, a common reaction to an overgrowth of Candida may have been athlete’s foot, a vaginal yeast infection in women or jock-itch though the absence of these does not mean the absence of yeast overgrowth. Many cases of endometriosis are actually just an overgrowth of Candida inside the uterus, but hundreds of thousands of women have surgically had their uterus removed when simply cleaning the organ of yeast may have been all that was needed. Before you have extreme health surgeries done or commit to long-term antibiotic use, try a cleanse for yeast.
The symptoms of Candidiasis vary from person to person, but the more common symptoms are:
- Fatigue after eating
- Feelings of aggression and anger after eating
- Craving simple carbohydrates, like those in bread and sugar
- Extreme mood swings
- Feeling intoxicated after eating a meal high in carbohydrates
- Excessive mucous in the throat, nose, and lungs
- Fungal infections of the skin
- Jock itch
- Athlete’s foot
- Vaginal infections and drainage
- Oral thrush
- Anal itching
- Short-term memory loss
- Feeling spacey
- Bloating after eating
- Flatulence after eating
When the overgrowth of Candida becomes chronic and occurs for more than ten years, the following symptoms may result:
- Lymphatic swelling
- Difficult PMS
- Night sweats
- Chest and joint pain
- Memory loss
- Lack of coordination
- Blurred vision
- Intense and sporadic headaches
- Intermittent vertigo
- Sneezing fits
- Increased food allergies
- Sensitivity to damp, mildewed or extremely humid environments
- Sensitivity to perfumes, colognes, and smoke
- Acute kidney infections
How to Prevent Candidiasis
Diet is your main defense against Candida. You may have to avoid a number of your favorite sugary foods and drinks. Once you have gotten your yeast overgrowth under control, you can introduce some of these foods back into your diet, limiting your intake of any food that feeds yeast, such as alcohol, sugar and diet sweeteners. Permanently remove all toxic food chemicals and highly processed food products, and eat smaller portions of organic foods.
Avoid or limit:
- Sugar, refined and simple
- Wheat and rye
- Milk and cheese
- Alcoholic and caffeinated beverages
Keep your food well covered in the refrigerator to prevent mold from forming. When eating out, don’t hesitate to ask how the dish is prepared and tell the server to serve ingredients like soy sauce or mayonnaise on the side.
If you struggle with Candida, eating a low carbohydrate diet is best. Carbohydrates, even healthy complex ones, break down into glucose (sugar) in the digestive tract. Avoid all sugars, but aim live as normal a life as possible. When you occasionally slip up and eat the foods that promote Candida overgrowth, make sure to supplement with the products available to assist in digesting.
The following foods are your best choices when on a Candida diet, and note that you’ll also lose weight.
- Fish, poultry, and lean red meat
- Most vegetables limit the amount of squashes, such as pumpkin
- Brown rice
- Seeds and nuts, except cashews and peanuts
- Beans and lentils
- Organic milks, but modify the amount of milk from cows
- Amaranth, kamut, quinoa, buckwheat, oats, and spelt
Contrary to popular belief, foods containing yeast may be eaten if no allergic reactions occur. Brewer’s yeast, for example, is very nutritious and immune-enhancing. Don’t fear your food learn what works for you.
As your Candida symptoms disappear, you can reintroduce some of the forbidden foods, but add them one at a time and very slowly. The major rule of thumb concerning Candida is to limit all your foods containing sugar. Indulging in too many foods too quickly can cause a relapse, and you might want to remain cautious for the rest of your life. But that’s not so byou are committed to eating a healthier diet that keeps your weight down, naturally.
You can learn to love that, you think?
Researchers believe that gastrointestinal disorders may be linked to the brain dysfunctions that cause autism. Recent studies have shown that there are beneficial effects of enzyme-based therapy for Autism spectrum disorders.
In a study conducted by Dr. Timothy Buie, a pediatric gastroenterologist from Harvard/Mass General hospital, forty-six patients between the ages of 5 and 31 were selected for inclusion in a study based on a diagnosis placing them in the category of the Autism spectrum disorders, ADD and ADHD. Their diets were supplemented with a dietary enzyme formulation. The results: the enzyme formula beneficially and safely affected all thirteen of the parameters measured; improvements ranged from 50-90% depending on the parameters. The enzyme was effective at improving the symptoms such as socialization, hyperactivity, attention, eye contact, comprehension and compulsions.
For both ADD/ADHD and Autism, stimulation of the limbic region of the brain may also help treat these disorders. The aromas from therapeutic essential oils have a powerful ability to stimulate this part of the brain, since the sense of smell is tied directly to the mind’s emotional and hormonal centers. As a result, the aroma of an essential oil has the potential to exert a powerful influence on ADD/ADHD and Autism.
In a two-year case study (1999-2001), Dr. Terry Friedmann, M.D., found significant results when children that had previously been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD were administered therapeutic essential oils by inhalation.
The essential oils Vetiver, Lavender, and Cedarwood were used.
The oils were administered in this fashion: one oil was administered by inhalation three times per day for 30 days. An inhalation device was also used at night to administer a continuous inhalation of oil.
The inhalation of the oils proved to settle the children’s brain waves back into normal patterns and improved their scholastic performance and behavioral patterns.
The final results:
Lavender increased performance by 53%.
Cedarwood increased performance by 83%.
Vetiver increased performance by 100%.
This study will be published in the American Medical Association Journal.
