1. Quantum Physics, Essential Oils & the Mind-Body Connection
~^~by David Stewart, PhD

Essential oils are composed of numerous chemical compounds, numbering from a few dozen to several hundred in a single species. Thus far, chemists have not fully analyzed even one species of essential oil. Scientists do not know the complete compositions of even the most popular oils, such as Lavender, Frankincense, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, or Peppermint. For example, lavender contains at least 200 identified compounds, but many more are known to be present whose identification has not been achieved.

One scientist estimated that just to identify all of the compounds present in the essential oils known today would take a thousand years. However, we do not need to know all of the constituents of an oil to enjoy its benefits. With essential oils, healing can start taking place right now, without complete understanding, while science can catch up later. Besides, essential oils are more than just chemistry.

Vehicles of Living Energy

A compound made in a laboratory may have the same chemical formula as one produced in nature, but they are not the same and do not have the same effect on your body and mind. A chemical formula is not a complete description of a compound, even though today’s chemists and chemistry books will say so. Instead of describing an essential oil as “A Mixture of Chemical Compounds,” essential oils are better described as “Vehicles of Living Energy.” Here is why that is so.

Most compounds of essential oils are built from “Aromatic Rings.” These are molecular structures composed of carbon atoms arranged in closed configurations such as triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, pentagons, hexagons, and other larger more complex shapes.

A prevalent form of these carbon rings in essential oils is the “Benzene Ring,” consisting of six carbons in a hexagonal circle. The benzene ring was discovered and described in the 19th century, but it was not well understood until the development of sophisticated technology in the 20th century. From a series of precise measurements of the electrical properties of the benzene ring, scientists eventually realized that the concept of simple atoms, protons, neutrons, and electrons could not explain its properties. Neither could the concepts of atoms and molecules fully explain the behavior of the many other kinds of rings found in essential oils.

What scientists came to conclude is that these ring structures could no longer be thought of as expressions of matter measured by discrete sizes, dimensions, and masses. This is because they are actually waveforms to be measured by frequencies, amplitudes, and phases. In other words, the compounds of essential oils are not just molecules of matter. They are energetic waveforms. Thus, essential oils can manifest either as particles of matter (chemistry) or as waves of energy (physics) or both.

The fact that energy and matter are equivalent and interchangeable was first articulated in 1905 by Albert Einstein (1879-1955). The realization that aromatic rings, originating as matter but functioning as energy, was only a further confirmation of Einstein's insight.

Quantum Physics 101

Now, let’s talk about quantum physics and show how essential oils employ the laws of both chemistry and modern physics, not just chemistry.

As a science, there are two fundamental forms of physics. There is “Classical physics” and there is “Quantum physics.” Both are necessary to describe the world around us and the ways in which essential oils work.

The principal laws of classical physics were first articulated by Sir Isaac Newton (1642–1727). Classical physics has to do with things large enough to experience or measure with our five senses. Classical physics provides the laws by which engineers can build bridges across rivers, design cars to ride in, and send rockets into outer space. Classical physics deals with phenomena involving dimensions the size of an atom or larger.

The principles of quantum physics were first articulated at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th by men such as Max Planck (1858–1947), Erwin Schroedinger (1887-1961), and Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976). Quantum physics has to do with things too small to experience or measure with our five senses. Quantum physics explains things like electric eyes, solar panels, and spectrometers and how they work. Quantum physics deals with the behavior of things with dimensions smaller than an atom. These include electrons, protons, neutrons, quarks, neutrinos, mesons, and other subatomic particles.

As human experimenters, we can study the objects of classical physics as objective observers, separated and apart from the phenomena we study. This is not so in quantum physics, where the experimenter is always part of the experiment.

For example, light is known to manifest is either a wave, described by frequency, amplitude, and phase, or it can manifest as a stream of particles with properties of discrete quanta described by size, momentum, and mass. These quantum particles are called photons. While light can appear as either a continuous wave or a stream of discrete photons in any given situation, it can never be both at the same time. It was in 1900 that Max Planck discovered the minimum unit of energy for a photon, expressed as a “quantum” and measured by Planck’s constant.

An interesting series of experiments were performed during the 1980s, by scientists working independently in Germany and the United States. They sought to explore the relationship, if any, between certain observed phenomena and the observers. These were the so-called “Double Slit, Delayed Choice” experiments. Scientists were able to show by releasing a light beam from a common source, aiming it through a pair of vertical slits, that as the light traveled to targets where it was to be recorded or observed, they could make a decision as to whether it would show up as a wave or a series of particles. Their decision, made while the beam was passing between its source and its recording point, determined the outcome of the experiment. If their decision were for the light to manifest as a continuous wave, it would record as a wave on the photographic plate. If their decision were for the light to manifest as discrete particles, it would record as particles.

The question arose, “What is light beam in flight on its way to being observed? Is it a wave or is it a stream of particles?” The answer scientists came to conclude is that a light beam in transit is neither a wave nor a particle. It does not exist as light until it is recorded or observed. As a beam travels the distance between its source and its target, it is not yet light, but only “a bundle of possibilities” or “a packet of probabilities” as yet unmanifested. Which possibility it will manifest at the recording site is up to the decision of the observer. In other words, the experimenter is unavoidably a part of the experiment and a determining element of the recorded outcome.

How to Prove that Light in Flight Does Not Exist

To demonstrate the non-existence of light before it is seen or recorded, consider this: If light existed as a wave as it passes from its source to a point of observation, you could take the beams of two flashlights and aim them to cross through the same region in space and they would interfere and alter each other. But this does not occur, a fact you can easily demonstrate yourself.

If you took several flashlights and shown their separate beams through the same region of space in a vacuum, the beams would all pass through each other, occupying the same space, without any interference. Each beam would pass through the others with no effect in its intensity, direction, or color. This is because the beams passing through the same portion of space do not exist as light. Therefore, they cannot influence or interfere with one another in any way.

This is in contrast to other types of waves such as sound, seismic waves, or waves on the ocean. If two sound waves pass simultaneously through the same portion of space, they alter each other. They can resonate and result in greater volume and they can interfere destructively, canceling each out partially or totally. Acoustical engineers must deal with wave interference patterns in designing auditoriums and music halls.

In the case of seismic waves, these are vibrations that move through the earth caused by earthquakes and other underground disturbances. When more than one wave train passes through the same region of earth at the same time, they interact and change one another, creating numerous altered patterns. It is these patterns that seismologists record and analyze.

In the case of waves on water, you have probably observed this yourself. When a surface wave moves against or across another wave, things happen quite visibly. They crash, change direction, and metamorphose as they pass through each other within the same volume space.

But light is different. The beams of the sun, traversing 97 million miles of space, can cross through light beams made here on earth without either affecting the other. That is because a light beam in transit is not a light beam and does not posses the properties of light.

But suppose light passing from one point to another actually existed as a stream of photons, a flow of quantum particles? If this were so, then two light beams crossing the same region would result in multiple collisions with the particles of each beam bouncing around in all directions, thus scattering the beams into a random disarray of flying particles.

To illustrate this, take two water hoses, each with a coherent stream of water squirting in a single direction. These would be streams of water molecules, millions of tiny particles of matter. Then aim the two hoses so that the streams pass through some common point. Both streams would instantly be scattered, splashed, and disrupted by the collision.

So you see, light in flight is different. It is neither energy nor matter. It is neither a passing wave nor a stream of particles. If it were either, two beams could not occupy the same space without interference. Therefore, light is not light until recorded or observed. There must be a receiver or recorder. It is only at the point of being observed that it becomes light as we know it. Until then it is only a passing packet of possibilities, a bundle of probabilities unborn.

Mind Over Matter

Before we apply the concepts of quantum physics to essential oils, let us discuss some other related research concerning the interaction of mind and matter. Let’s consider essential oils as “living energy” and consider how human intent and the decisions we may can determine the action of an oil.

We know that the human mind can affect the electromagnetic frequencies of essential oils. Prayer and positive thinking elevates the frequencies while negative thoughts will decrease the frequencies.

In the 1950’s, Franklin Loehr, an American scientist explored the effect of prayer and human thought on water. H2O molecules are composed to a single oxygen atom with two hydrogen atoms attached at specific angles ranging from 120-110 degrees. Loehr found that human thought alters the bonding angles between the oxygen and hydrogen atoms, thus changing the physical properties of the water. (See "The Power of Prayer on Plants" by Franklin Loehr.)

More recent experiments by the Japanese scientist, Masaru Emoto, graphically prove that human thought and emotion affects the crystalline structure of frozen water. Aim beautiful thoughts at water, such as “love,” “angel,” or “appreciation,” and it will crystallize into beautiful icy patterns. Aim ugly or mean thoughts toward water, such as “hate,” “demon,” or “kill” and the frozen water produces ugly crystals. Interaction of mind and matter is a scientific fact. (See "Messages from Water" by Masaru Emoto.)

Consider this: As water vapor is condensing in the high atmosphere and crystallizing into snowflakes, the water above is receiving millions of thoughts from the people below and responding according to the nature of the thoughts. The next time it snows in your area, ask yourself: “Am I creating beautiful snowflakes or ugly ones?” If you find an ugly snowflake, you can always say, “I didn’t create that one. Someone else did.”

The point is that human thought and human intent effects electron behavior. Since every chemical and neural process in the human body involves the activity of electrons, we see that our bodily functions are not simple matters of traditional chemistry and classical physics. They are mental, emotional, and spiritual as well. The so called “mind-body connection” is through the electrons.

We know that essential oils amplify intent—the intent of the person applying the oils as well as the intent of the person receiving the oils. Healing practitioners who anoint with oils know from experience that essential oils work better with prayer. They also work better when supported by faith and belief on the part of the receiver. But exactly why and how does this work?

Essential oils also have electrical properties, which are subject to our thoughts and feelings. We have always known that the same essential oil will have different effects on different people, but the usual explanation is that different people have different chemistries. Therefore, the same oil will have a different chemical effect on different people because of their differing chemical make-up. But is it really all about chemistry?

The Quantum Physics of Essential Oils

The next time someone asks you about what an essential oils can do, you can give them two answers.

(1) When a person asks, “What will this essential oil do for me?” You can say, “Well, the oil contains certain compounds. There are phenols that are cleansing and detoxifying. There are esters that are emotionally releasing. There are sesquiterpenes that oxygenate the cells and clean out misinformation in cellular memory. And there monoterpenes, ketones, oxides, etc., which can do this or that and which can have such and such effects depending on the chemistry of your own body. What benefits you receive from this oil may be different that those received by another because different people have different chemistry.” That would be a chemical answer, and it is a perfectly valid answer.

(2) You can also give them a quantum physics answer. When someone says, “What will this oil do for me?” You can reply, “What do you want it to do? This bottle of oil is only a packet of possibilities. Which possibility it manifests for you will depend upon your thoughts and desires. For a person with different thoughts and desires, it would manifest different possibilities. So decide what you want it to do.” That would be your quantum physics answer.

Both the chemical and quantum answers are correct. You need both to fully describe how essential oils work. Here is how they work together.

The “packet of probabilities” offered by an oil is a matter of chemistry. The chemical composition, or collection of compounds, that makes up a specific oil determines its “possibilities.” A given oil is not capable of all possibilities, only those within the capability of the constituents present. The determination of which element of the “bundle of possibilities” represented by the oil’s chemistry will manifest in a particular person is a matter of quantum physics. And quantum physics is subject to desire, feeling, and intent. In short, the potential actions of an oil is defined and limited by its chemistry, but the determining factor as to which potential action will manifest is defined and limited by the attitudes of the anointer and receiver.

Chemistry determines what is possible. Quantum physics determines which possibilities actually happen. Our thoughts won’t change the chemistry of an oil; that is fixed before we apply the oil. But our thoughts can determine which aspects of the chemistry will work in our bodies; that is determined at the time of anointing and afterwards.

What this means is that the receiver of an essential oil must participate in their own healing. The oils are not healers. They are only vehicles that must be facilitated by our supportive thoughts for them to work with optimal benefit. Because of their innate chemistry and the intent given to them when grown, distilled, packaged, and distributed, therapeutic grade essential oils will work to an extent even without the conscious participation and mental support of the receiver. But they will work much better with such support and participation. This is also why you want to use only pure therapeutic grade essential oils that are imbued with the healing intent of the manufacturer and marketer, from the herbs of the field to the bottle that is sold.

So you can see that the science of essential oils, as agents of health and healing, involves both physics and chemistry in combination with the human heart and mind.

Therefore, therapeutic grade essential oils are in a category all of their own--above and beyond the simple drugs, antibiotics, and antibacterial agents marketed by physicians and pharmacists at this time. Essential oils have been available on earth since the creation of plant life and are imbued with the qualities and intent of their creator. The medicines of man fabricated in factories and laboratories have no such qualities and the intent of their makers is not necessarily healing.

An Example of Applied Quantum Physics with Oils

Margaret is an employee of ours whom we see regularly throughout every work week. A few years ago, she was playing volleyball and got hit hard in the mouth with an elbow. It pushed one of her front upper teeth back so far that she could not chew because it no longer aligned with her lower teeth, striking them at an odd angle. The displaced tooth also turned gray.

When x-rayed by a dentist, he said that the bone behind the tooth was crushed but the tooth, itself, was not broken. He said that the nerves inside were dead and that the gray coloring in the tooth was because there was no blood circulating in it. He told Margaret that she would need to have a root canal—a costly procedure that would leave her tooth without feeling and permanently dead. The dentist also told her that the only way to reposition the tooth was to apply braces over a period of time.

Instead, Margaret decided to take an alternative route. She started a daily routine. Every morning and evening she brushed her teeth with Thieves Toothpaste, Gargled with Thieves Mouthwash, and rubbed Thieves Oil Blend directly on her teeth and gums. She also rubbed oils of Juniper, Wintergreen, Cypress, and Peppermint on her teeth every day.

Within two weeks her tooth moved back into its original positions on its own, without braces. Then slowly, over the next month, the color of her tooth went from very gray to white again. The feeling in her tooth was also restored. Today you cannot tell that her tooth was ever displaced or discolored.

I was not surprised that the color returned to her tooth, since Thieves oil blend is highly antimicrobial and if there were any infection in the teeth, Thieves is quite able to combat it. This would be due to the chemistry of the oils that make up the blend: Clove, Cinnamon, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. Cypress oil is also known for correcting scrambled programming due to physical trauma at the level of cellular intelligence.

Nor was I too surprised that the feeling and nerve function of her teeth was also restored. Essential oils are known to be capable of tissue regeneration, including damaged nerves. While nerve regeneration is not a property generally ascribed to Thieves Oil Blend, Juniper oil is known for this capability. There are other oils better known for that.

But the fact that the teeth restored themselves back into their original positions was most amazing to me. While the chemical possibilities of Thieves certainly include antimicrobial action and Juniper is associated with nerve regeneration, the righting of bent teeth was not something I had ever heard of with any oil. Wintergreen does address bone challenges and was, perhaps, the oil that healed her crushed jawbone and helped straighten the tooth. In any case, the possibilities of fixing crushed bone and straightening crooked teeth must have been a part of the “bundle of probabilities” possessed by the oils Margaret chose, even if these may have been obscure and remote possibilities that were unknown and rarely manifested.

The question is this: “What was it that activated these specific healing possibilities from the oils to fix Margaret’s tooth?” I believe it was Margaret’s strong intent to solve and completely heal her problem with oils and to avoid, at all costs, the expensive oral procedures her dentist would have performed. With such will and determination applied with the oils of her choice, she was completely healed and restored.

Margaret’s success also illustrates the power of patient participation in one’s own therapy. If Margaret had applied the Thieves Oil, Thieves products, and other oils mechanically, just because someone recommended it, without the faith and fervor of her focused intent, the healing would probably have not taken place so quickly nor so completely and, perhaps, only partially or not at all.

So you can see how the oils, chemistry, quantum physics, right attitude, and determination all work together to achieve a desired result. The key element in this experience certainly involved her choices of oils, but the real determinant was Margaret’s resolve and will to apply the oils until the ultimate result was obtained, no matter how long it might take. Thanks to the intensity of Margaret’s intent, it didn’t take very long.

Packets of Possibilities

Each species of essential oil possesses many possibilities but will manifest only certain ones in a given application on a particular receiver. The ones available are determined by chemistry. The ones chosen are determined by the desires, feelings, and beliefs of the receiver and facilitator. When an oil is applied to any part of the body you can mentally direct it to go to wherever it is needed and affirm the outcome you desire. Your affirmation must be more than a one-time thought, but must come from within your deepest convictions and faith and be repeated and consciously retained until the desired results are manifested.

Even for a single oil, the possibilities are innumerable and almost unlimited, including potential manifestations previously unknown. For example, an oil may be known to be supportive of liver function, and but not known for nerve regeneration. Even so, that oil could manifest regenerative neural actions if directed to do so. So if you don’t think you have the right oil for a specific application, use what you have and, with intense concentration and feeling, direct the oil to do whatever you wish it to do. Essential oils are imbued with an intelligence non-existent in pharmaceutical drugs.

Listed below are six general probabilities possessed by essential oils that you can call upon to create healthy environments in your home, car, or work place and to maintain wellness or bring about healing in your body. You can call this list a “Six-Pack of Possibilities” for essential oils.

1. Essential oils can destroy harmful fungi, viruses, and bacteria in the air we breathe as well as inside our bodies. While being deadly to pathogenic microbes, they are harmless and helpful to humans.

2. Essential oils can act like hormones to keep our organs and bodily functions in balance and can even fill in the differences, or stimulate our bodies to produce, when our bodies do not manufacture the hormones we need.

3. Essential oils can elevate our bodily frequencies, helping us to stay healthy and immune to disease. Their vibrations resonate with our tissues in helpful ways according to our wishes and mental directions.

4. Essential oils are nature’s most powerful antioxidants that cleanse free radicals from our systems. This helps maintain a state of wellness and can extend our life spans.

5. Essential oils work in our limbic systems to help clear negative feelings and blocked emotions, thus eliminating the root causes of many diseases and conditions.

6. Essential oils support and increase our intuitive powers and sharpen our spiritual awareness, which is why religions all over the world, from ancient times to the present, diffuse the aromas of essential oils as incense in their sanctuaries in order to facilitate effective meditation and prayer.

Essential oils work on all human levels: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. Some even say that essential oils can work on the financial level, as well, which is why Young Living has a blend called “Abundance.” Remember, by the laws quantum physics, “Essential oils amplify intent.” This is true whatever your intent may be, but is much truer when your intent is a good one and in harmony with a higher power.

2. Gary Young's Depression Protocol
~^~by Vicki Opfer

The following is provided by Vicki Opfer who received this protocol from Gary Young at a lecture in Wyoming arranged by his sister, Nancy Sanderson.

"Gary gave a protocol for depression that I have taught in every class since then," says Vicki. "It includes Valor, Harmony, Joy, and White Angelica."

This is a good protocol to start your day or to begin a class any time. You don't have to be depressed to receive its benefits.

Gary's Mood Elevating Protocol:

On the bottoms of the feet, or a single drop on one wrist and hold the other wrist to it for a few moments to balance the entire system!

A single drop, over the solar plexus area (above the belly button)!

A single drop over the heart!

A single drop in one hand, rub hands together, and brush over the head, face, chest, shoulders, down the body, right over the clothes, as though applying an angelic shield!

3. What Are We Allowed to Say? by Jeff Kaplan, RN, LMT
~^~(With Preface by David Stewart)


Young Living distributors are often confused about what they can legally say or not say about essential oils. Basically, what you can't do is to tell someone what specific oils to use and how to use them for their specific complaints. That would be "prescribing," which only licensed health care providers can legally do. Another thing you cannot do is to state that a certain oil can cure such in such or produce certain definite results. That would be "making a medical claim," which only doctors and drug companies can do.

We are also not supposed to use certain words or prefixes that the drug companies have obtained exclusive rights to use. The prefix, "anti-" is supposed to be reserved only for pharmaceuticals, but the word, "antiseptic" is okay for anyone to use and can be freely applied to oils that have that property (which is most of them). Some distributors are afraid they have to memorize a long list of dos and don'ts and words to avoid, and still fear they will slip up and say something forbidden.

In general, what we are allowed to do is to teach, share our personal experiences, read from published sources, and provide information in general. We can be vague and indirect, and still make our point, and be okay with the law.

The following is an answer to the question of "What can I legally say?" that was recently posted on the GreaterJoy chatline by Jeff Kaplan. I enjoyed what he expressed there and especially his style of expressing things. I wanted to share it with you. I like the way he has simplified things, cut to the chase, wasted no words, was blunt with the truth, and avoids having to think about every word he speaks to stay on the right side of the FDA.

Jeff Kaplan is the son of a physician, a registered nurse, and a licensed massage therapist. His website is www.admiralmassage.com.

David Stewart


I am allowed to tell people what their drugs can do, or are doing to them. I read the side effects right out of this Lippincott Nursing Drug Guide, or I let them read it themselves.

I tell people that many medications/drugs are anti-health. I can use the "anti-" word when it comes to drugs, right?

I have a person I massage 3 times weekly, who has brain cancer. One of his doctors has him on a high dose of prednisone, ostensibly to keep down the swelling in his brain. Apparently, his brain was swelling because the tumor was growing. Hello?

Prednisone, for a cancer patient????!#$%&%! Of course, we can think of several oils that do a better job of reducing inflammation. Notice I didn't say the anti word here. To name a few: Wintergreen, Peppermint, Lavender, and the new one, Copal (also known as Copaiba), an ingredient in the new roll-on, Deep Relief.

If you want your patient to get better, the last thing you would want is to shut down his immune system with steroids. Oh well!

Cancer patients will often eat a lot of sugar from milk shakes, if they can get them down without upchucking-just so long as they can eat something, esp to keep the weight on, or gain weight. The doctors usually don't say anything about eating a lot of sugar which feeds the cancer. Why should that situation be any different when it comes to prescribing steroids?

You see, getting this patient well and cancer free is not the goal in modern medicine. The goal is palliative care only. "Minimize his suffering" while he is still alive since he is going to die anyway. I highly question the "minimize his suffering" part. I think its the other way around.

I asked his wife if he was still taking prednisone? "Yes," she said, "and they upped his dose."

"WHY???" I asked.

She said, "Six and a half, and a dozen of the other" or something like that.. (I never could quite got a handle on that phrase)

Basically, she has gotten programmed by the doctors that "the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks".

No they don't.

I could tell he was taking a steroid before I even asked her, because his poor skin gave him away. This guy's skin is blotchy, and ecchymotic (bruised all over the place), with scabs, and skin tears. His skin is the texture of toast. Thats what happens when people are on steroids for an extended period-their skin gets fried. Prednisone screws up everything in your body. He has literally no immune system left.

I am massaging him three times a week, putting on Frankincense, Lemon, Myrrh, Tangerine, Lavender, Oregano, Thieves, and any thing else I can think of, to keep this guy going. It gets me perturbed, at how some people like this dear sweet man, or his wife, can blindly accept this treatment from his doctor.

So as far as words are concerned, I don't mince them when it comes to the drugs some people are taking. I have no need of exaggerating when I tell people drug side effects. I have never had anybody tell me, I KNEW ALL THAT!

Usually,they say, "Oh really? I didn't know that! Why does the doctor have him, or her, or me on this drug anyway?"

Before I came along, 98 times out of a 100, they didn't have a clue about drug side effects, and precautions, due to possible liver and kidney damage, not to mention all of the other lovely things that happen over time as the toxins build up in the liver, and other body systems. Some people have been taking some of their drugs for YEARS.

I have a thought. How is it stepping out of bounds with the words we use, when you read the information, including the side effects, nursing considerations, and precautions right out of a drug book? You may not understand all the Latin words in there, but you will understand enough.

If you have to, get a medical dictionary. That will really open things up to you. You might even catch yourself thinking, MAN ALIVE, THIS DRUG IS PURE POISON! HOW COULD ANY DOCTOR PRESCRIBE THIS, AND HOW IN THE WORLD COULD ANYBODY TAKE IT??

Not knowing what some of those words mean keeps us in the dark. What about the person taking the drug? Even if they read the side effects, do you think they know what any of those words mean? I don't think so. I still have to look a lot of them up myself.

Let me explain something: Those sheets that come home with people from the pharmacy that tell of side effects are pretty lame. They don't tell half the story. Get yourself a good drug book, like the Physicians Desk Reference (The PDR). Quote it, or let them read for themselves.

We are in the people business, and I think we are also in the education business. I want to help people, and the first priority in my mind, is to help them understand the meds/drugs/poisons they are taking-and understand exactly why they are taking them.

I also like to give the good news after I give them the bad: You know, there are a few things that you can do, which aren't as expensive, that might help you a lot.

Oh really? Like what?

This would be a good time to pull out the EODR, and look up an oil, or condition in the back. Well, lets take a look in this book...I have done that with a few people, and enrolled them.

By the way, I don't tell people to stop their drugs cold turkey. I don't want to get in trouble, and I don't want Young Living to get in trouble. I also don't want someone stopping a drug that they need to wean off.

Statins-yes, get the blank off of them. You have to read the info in the drug book though to know! Some drugs are so bad though, you shouldn't really wait until the patient's body goes to pot, and they die, before you say anything. I have found that MOST of the time, the person is deteriorating, not because of the disease they were diagnosed with-its the drugs they are on thats wrecking their health.

If we are going to quote from the Desk Reference, and I agree on that, lets turn the tables around and quote from drug books. If not, why not? The FDA can't shut down Young Living, because of YL distributors reading about drug side effects to people from the same drug books which are found in hospital nursing stations.

Some doctors may not like it, but thats too bad. My Dad, a D.O., thinks that drugs are waaaaay overprescribed! He used to take away some of his patients' drugs, because he often told me that most patients he saw, were on way too many medications. He called it the "pink pills for pale people" syndrome.

Some people get blue pills for this disease, and others, red pills for that disease, and still others, green pills for still another disease. This may be a slight exaggeration but not much! Certain diseases get the same pills almost like clockwork. Not in every case, but more often than not, this is true. It also depends on the latest drug(s) that are out, which are being pushed/promoted by the drug reps.

I am anti-pills. If this guy I am seeing tomorrow wasn't on that steroid, he would be SOOOO MUCH BETTER. Sigh!

I have used up most of my oils on him. They aren't anti-life like the drug(s) he is taking. The oils are pro-life, and pro-health. Our oils in fact, make it possible for us to be pro-active with our health. These are the words I am allowing myself to use.

As of February 24, 2009, 59 CARE Programs have already been scheduled for 2009. More programs are added every week. Periodically check the website, http://www.RaindropTraining.com for the latest listings in the CARE Calendar.

If you don't find a CARE program in your area at this time, check the Directory of Certified Trainers on the CARE website and contact one or more of them to see if a CARE Seminar or Intensive can be arranged in your neighborhood.


1. CARE INTENSIVES (offering ALL of the 25-hour CARE curriculum over a 3-4 day period.)

2. CARE SEMINARS (offering a portion of the CARE curriculum over a 1-2 day period.)

3. CARE CLASSES OR LECTURES (offering one, or a portion, of the five topics of the CARE curriculum in a day, morning, afternoon, or evening.)

The Full 25-hour CARE Curriculum includes the following:

BO - Bible Oils (2 hrs)
VF - Applied Vitaflex (4 hrs)
RD - Raindrop Technique (8 hrs)
CH - Essential Oil Chemistry (6 hrs)
ER - Emotional Release with Oils (5 hrs)

Listings of scheduled CARE Programs are given below and are coded as follows:

1. Intensives offering the full five courses (25 hrs) of CARE credit are designated as ALL.

2. Seminars offering only a part of the CARE curriculum are designated according to what is offered by BO, VF, RD, CH, and/or ER as appropriate.

The Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a Continuing Education Approved Provider.

For specific information on any particular program, see Contact Names with their emails, phone numbers, etc., at the end of this message. Registration for most Intensives can be accomplished on the internet at http://www.RaindropTraining.com.

You may also call CARE toll free at (800) 758-8629 or e-mail your requests to careclasses@raindroptraining.com.


CARE Classes are usually taken for the information and skills they provide. Certificates of Participation are issued for each Class. Any CARE Class once taken can be repeated for half-price.

For those who may want to teach for CARE, CARE Classes are the first step toward becoming a Certified CARE Instructor (CCI)

In addition to credit for massage therapists thru NCBTMB, taking CARE Classes can also lead to becoming a Certified Raindrop Practitioner (CRP) or Board Certified Raindrop Specialist (BCRS) through the Natural Therapies Certification Board (NTCB). The CARE Program also leads to eligibility to become a Licensed Spiritual Healer (LSH) through the Alliance of Christian Healers Licensing Board. Becoming both a CRP and a LSH legalizes you in the practice of Raindrop and Vitaflex throughout the U.S. and Canada. Being a CRP or BCRS also makes you eligible to obtain liability insurance good throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Eligibility for becoming a CRP or BCRS is available only through CARE. For more details, visit http://www.RaindropTraining.com.For complete details, obtain a current edition of the CCI Handbook ($9.95) available from CARE.

This program may change your life if you are willing to try something new and be open. I love how gentle and graceful my healing was and how wonderful to have hope again.
~ Lisa Marie Belter, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This class was very enlightening. I would recommend it to everyone. It is nice to know that there is an alternative to medicine.
~ Tiffany Slusher, Minford, Ohio

As a Medical Doctor, I would suggest very highly that all medical practitioners, medical students, and residents should be exposed to programs like this.
~ Andrew Sears, M.D., Saginaw, Michigan

I can say from experience that the complete version of Raindrop, as taught in CARE Seminars, is the very best. CARE training allows a person to completely grasp the meaning of every technique and lesson taught so a person can carry out, with true value and with deep spirituality, their own facilitations using CARE methods. I am confident that I have learned the most effective way to assist others on their journey to optimum health."
~ Colleen Coleman, Sherwood, Oregon

Since I can remember I could not seem to hear what others could hear. As a result I was labeled as a slow learner. At the CARE Seminar, the Instructor asked if he could demonstrate the Vitaflex Ear Technique on me using helichrysum oil. So I took out my hearing aid and he gave his demonstration to the class. That night when I turned on my computer I had to decrease the volume by three-quarters of the setting I normally use as it was too loud for me. The next day I did not wear my hearing aid to class and for the first time I did not strain to hear.
~ Vickie Hornbuckle, Piedmont, Kansas

This seminar was beyond my highest expectations! It opened up incredible insights and understandings! In addition we learned one Vitaflex technique that 'cured' my scoliosis with one application.
~ Patricia B. Hayes, Bath, Michigan

My experience in this class was very precious and a blessing! The instructor poured out her love all day long amongst us. She touched my heart. I would love to have more of my dear friends in Europe receive this wonderful experience.
~ Gabriele Hauser, M.D., Vienna, Austria

This program has changed my life. I feel as if I have been waiting all of my life for this door to open so I could walk through into my destiny. Usually I would go to a seminar and in a few days, I would go back to my old habit patterns, but not this time. The next day after the emotional release class I woke up totally free from a fear I had for years. God is such a wonderful Father to prepare these healings for us in such a simple way as offered through CARE's ministry. I will forever be thankful. And one more thing. My block towards chemistry is gone. Really gone!I did not look forwardto the class. I actually dreaded it. Now, I am looking forwardto taking it again and becoming a teacher! Miracles happen all the time! Shalom.
~ Maria DeShields, St. Louis, Missouri

A fabulous reintroduction to the oils, the chemistry, and life in general. The instructor was amazing.
~ Jyll Johnstone, DiReno, Italy

The CARE Intensive exceeded my high expectations. All of the instructors were great. Their tremendous caring and willingness to give of self was always evident.This program provides an opportunity to build on previous knowledge or start new if unfamiliar with essential oils. It also enables you to participate in personal growth and meet wonderful people.
~ Jeannette Vaupel, RN, Genoa, Illinois

Thank you so much for bringing the raindrop training to Australia. I absolutely loved the course. It was a turning point for me. I hope that you can come back to Australia ASAP.
~ Sonya Vassallo, Beechworth, Victoria, Australia

I am so grateful for CARE. This workshop really truly builds confidence and teaches the techniques in a way that could be learned by anyone. Thank you! It has been so fulfilling!
~ Robyn Karima Grant, Nakuop, British Columbia, Canada

This seminar will change your life! I have no suggestions forthis seminar. It was fantastic.
~ Diane Koepp, Belle Plaine, Minnesota

This is a program for everyone. It will cange their lives for a much better future. Makes you a new person who belongs to God. Thank you.
~ Dermot Bailey, Niestetal, Germany

It was great! I loved it! Until I took this seminar I didn't have a clue that oils could do so much! Thank you!
~ Susan J. Knowles, Caldwell, West Virginia

We traveled a long way for the CARE Seminar (from England to California). The whole workshop was interesting, enlightening, excellent, and very enjoyable. It was well worth every mile traveled!
~ Susan Neary, Clitheroe, Lancashire, England

As a massage therapist I was able to take the work that I do to the next level! The understanding of the chemistry of essential is helping me explain the scientific way they work. Thank you. It was a pleasure being in this class.
~ Melissa Bills, LMT, Caro, Michigan

This training is an absolute must for all those involved in oils. Truly awe inspiring!! We received knowledge and healing from above.
~ James Claps, Grove Village, Illinois

This workshop has been the most rewarding learning experience since my introduction to essential oils. The wealth of material and wonderful personal experiences and knowledge shared was beyond my expectations.
~ Aziyza Shabazz, St. Croix, Virgin Islands

Three days after receiving raindrop in the CARE class I received a healing from a painful shoulder and left arm. I am very excited what the oils do for people.
~ Meg Hueslcamp, Brenham, Texas

Millions of thanks to you. I am already lining up students to come to your next classes. Everything was taught in such a simple manner that even a child could follow and do raindrop technique. May God bless you richly in your work.
~ Kiew Lo, Carlingford Court, New South Wales, Australia

Words are not adequate to express how great this class is. Everyone was inspired and blessed by every section of the class. We didn't want it to end.
~ Connie Allen, Lewiston, Idaho

The CARE Intensive was so great! It was amazing. During the three days we all bonded together and it seemed like we were all a big family. I found the chemistry class to be very interesting, which shocked me as I never really enjoyed science before. You explained everything so well that now I will feel more confident in using my oils and sharing them. Thank you for the experience and the training.
~ Jamie Brown, Lakewood, California

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for such a wonderful program. Not only have I learned a great deal of new skills, I have grown as a spiritual being. All this in just three days! Thank you.
~ Kim McMahon, Bronte Beach, New South Wales, Australia

I have taken the CARE Classes twice now and it continues to get better. The magnitude of information is incredible. I feel like I could repeat and repeat.
~ Carol Garvey, Oakville, Ontario, Canada

I wouldn't change anything about the CARE class. It is perfect. This little group is really special. We were supported by so many angels and the presence of the highest spirit. I love this training!
~ Vijay Churfuerst-Hanzal, Leobendorf, Austria

The Raindrop Messenger is also a friendly way of keeping you abreast of CARE’s ongoing programs, activities and helpful books and videos.

Subscribing and Unsubscribing

Where and How to Obtain Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

If you are a Young Living Essential Oils Distributor or a Young Living Customer, you have chosen to avail yourself of the world’s finest oils of Biblical grade quality. If You are not a YL Member and have a friend or relative who is, you should approach them and ask how you can become affiliated with Young Living and purchase these oils.

You may also contact any Certified CARE Instructor (CCI) who would be happy to enroll you in Young Living. The addresses, phone numbers, and email information for all CARE instructors are given on the CARE website, http://www.RaindropTraining.com. Perhaps there is a CCI living near to you who would serve as your sponsor and assist you in learning about how to use the oils.

If you do not know of anyone in your community or family that sells these oils, you may also choose to enroll with Dr. David and Lee Stewart as your sponsor at http://bibleoils.YoungLivingWorld.com or by contacting Young Living at (800) 371-3515 and enroll over the phone asking that David and Lee Stewart, YLEO Member #261333, be your sponsors. You may also call David or Lee directly at (573) 238-4273.

You cannot practice therapeutic aromatherapy with healing results unless you use properly produced and packaged oils. Most oils easily available from retail outlets are food or perfume grade oils and do not have the healing properties that Young Living oils possess.
