  • Dissolve petrochemicals plugging the receptor sites of the pineal, pituitary and hypothalamus glands in the brain.
  • Increase absorption of nutrients and vitamins in the body.

In 1985, Dr. Jean Lapraz reported that he couldnít find bacteria or viruses that could live in the presence of the essential oils of cinnamon or oregano.2

Essential Oils are more than just aroma! Essential oils are natureís medicine kit.
