I go into a gift store. Yuck...synthetic
fragrance. I have to leave. I go down the cleaning aisle at the
grocery store. I get sick to my stomach and dizzy, and I have to
leave. I go into the restroom at the restaurant at which I am eating.
The room freshener is making me ill and my appetite is ruined now.
Does no one else notice how offensive these fragrances are? I try to be
polite, but am I really being polite by not being more outspoken on
issues like this?
Candles, perfumes, deodorants, room fresheners,
dish washing liquid...artificial fragrances are everywhere. Why? Have
people forgotten how wonderful the smell of a spring day really is? Or
the smell of a real pine tree, or lemons, or the smell of a fresh
bouquet? The difference is tremendous! They smell nothing like their
synthetic counterpart. Natural fragrances are so much more subtle and
gentle, not abrasive and irritating the way that chemicals are.
Yes. That's what they are. They are irritating to the respiratory
tract, that much has been proven by science again and again. So why do
we keep breathing them in? Because so much money is being made that
nobody cares! I think, too, it's because people's noses are so worn out
from the irritation, that nobody smells how truly awful they smell!
fragrances have also been linked to many problems with the endocrine
(or glandular) system. They have even been linked to fertility problems
and birth defects! Cancer is another problem, as is asthma, allergies,
central nervous system disorders and more. It is criminal that this is not more widely known.
Millions of people paying money to subject more people to toxic
substances just by breathing the air in their place of business...or
organization...or home. We even give this poison as gifts! Why do so
many do that? Because we think it smells.....nice? Poison, in my mind,
is not nice!
I'll tell you what's nice. The smell of real
flowers, fresh fruit, and rain. Cinnamon, vanilla, cherries, lavender,
roses and mint...there are so many wonderful smells that are REAL!
guess what? Not only are they not dangerous, they are actually GOOD
for our health!!! The natural aroma enters our nasal passages and sends
signals to the brain. They have wonderful effects on our body, spirit
Natural fragrances can be used in the form of
essential oils, and they not only smell great and have healing effects,
but they tend to be very antibacterial and anti-fungal and are quite
excellent for cleaning surfaces, the air, and also the body. That's
what they used to anoint Jesus' feet! In fact, they gave him
frankincense and myrrh the first night he was born. That's how valuable
natural fragrances have always been and always will be. They have been
here since the very beginning of time...when all was created and seen
At Essentials of Life we believe that yes, all was
created as good from the beginning. Good and for our good. Since then
things have diverted a great deal, and now we have so much sickness and
disease it's unreal. Yes. It's just that. "Unreal." Why are so many
dying in sick? Because we're living in a world that's becoming less and
Artificial fragrances, artificial food, artificial
medicine in the form of synthetic drugs. Synthetic. Artificial.
Unreal. Phony. Fake. Then we say natural health doesn't work. How can
people expect to experience natural healing when everything they do is
"unreal?" Real health comes by real means!
As a society we surely must realize we've had to have
been somehow brainwashed or drugged or both in order for us to believe
the rubbish that is supporting the mega-bazillion dollar chemical
world!!! We're paying to be poisoned and thinking it's all very
pleasant and nice! Wake up and smell the coffee! Real coffee! Make
sure it's organic and fair trade but SMELL it! At least it's still from
a real bean!
research is abundantly clear on this matter. The government has turned
its eye in favor of the mega-bizillion dollar chemical companies, and
so let's guess why nobody knows. Unless they look at the research, that
Do it. Look at the research. See for yourself. Don't
depend on your doctor or the ads on TV to tell you. Find out for
yourself and then stop killing yourself, your brain, your hormones, and
deforming other folks' kids. I mean, for real. If a store is going to
install a baby changing table, then maybe they might want to consider
taking the artificial air freshener out and using essential oils. It
might smell nice, but we don't want what comes with it thrust upon us
and our kids!
list goes on and on...This is what science has repeatedly shown. There
is a directpp link between synthetic fragrances and the problems
above. this what we want for ourselves? For our kids? For our
elderly parents? For our dog? NO! We want to be healthy, of course!!!
- GLANDULAR PROBLEMS
- HORMONAL PROBLEMS
- BIRTH DEFECTS
- RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS
- NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEMS
- MUSCLE AND JOINT PAIN
don't buy it! STOP! Take a serious look at what's going on! There is
research all over the place! Not only studies on fragrance, but on all
the chemicals to which we are exposing ourselves on a daily basis.
Synthetic fragrances are present in so many products
used around the house and in personal hygiene, when essential oils do a
much better job. They smell better, they clean better, they even
retard wrinkles! Essential oils are natural healing agents given to us
by God, but instead we use products with poisons...who would do that on
purpose? People clearly do not understand.
Issues such as these
is why we, as a church, are taking on the cause of giving folk medicine
back to the folks. Come on people...these drugs...these chemicals...the
fragrances...they are completely dulling your minds and ruining your
health! YES! Even something as seemingly innocent as a sheet of fabric
softener thrown in with your clothes.
Studies have shown that
the chemicals in synthetic fragrances cause severe problems in the
environment when they enter the waste system. Problems that don't go
away. It has been found, for instance, that these chemicals are harming the wildlife. Some people think this is only an issue for "liberal tree huggers and animal lovers," but what affects the environment is affecting us, too. If the leftovers are killing the fish, believe me, the main course is doing the same thing to us.
These chemicals cross the blood brain barrier, for one thing, and
for another thing, they impair the body's ability to screen other
chemicals out. This is bad! This is contrary to nature. This is the opposite of God's will for our good.
As a church, this IS our concern.
We are here to help people live closer to God. Well, God didn't sell
you a bunch of fragrances that will make you sick, God gave you roses
for free...and lilacs...and lavender....and geraniums....and
peppermint....and cinnamon...and frankincense....and lemons...and pine
trees....and a whole lot of other good scents that help HEAL. Real
pine actually works to clean out your lungs as it cleans the floor! What could possibly be better than that?! But instead, people use artificially scented "pine" cleaners that negatively impact their health. Even hospitals are using these things! How can that possibly be? Are we really that blinded by commercial interests to realize we're being sold something that isn't good for our health? Shouldn't hospitals, at least, be concerned about what medical research has shown?
a church this is our problem, too, because we are stewards of this
planet upon which we live. Are we taking good care of it? Really?
a church this is our problem because people are getting sick...people
are dying, in fact...and they don't even know why. It's our duty to
point out this problem. With awareness comes responsibility, and this
is a problem of profound significance of which we are aware. Prevention
is easy. Well, not easy...but every little bit helps, and switching to
natural fragrance will certainly help.
As a church this is our
problem because our bodies are the temple of God. Please be aware. The
merchants don't care if they defile the temple. Jesus threw them out.
We need to start doing the same.

Natural fragrance is one of God's Gifts of Healing. Learn to use it and it will serve you well! If you would like to learn how to make your own unscented or naturally scented product, join us for the We Can Make It Group if you would like! The invitation is open to all. At any rate, have some good scents about what you expose your brain, lungs, and body to.
