MEDICINE OF AROMATIC SUBSTANCES
Aromatherapy & Essential Oils
Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil Therapy is the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual elements to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.
Essential oils are distilled or expressed aromatic extracts from various parts of aromatic/medicinal plants: roots, leaves, flowers, fruit, bark and resins. Each essential oil is extremely complex and contains hundreds of individual chemical components all working in synergy to provide unique therapeutic properties and a signature aroma.
Frequency of the Essential Oils
The electrical and magnetic fields of the human body are complex and dynamic and are associated with dynamical processes such as heart and brain function, blood and lymph flow, ion transport across cell membranes, and many other biologic processes on many different scales.
The frequency of the human brain is 72-90 MHz and of the body is 62-68 MHz. Essential oils range from 52-320 MHz with the spiritual oils being over 90 MHz, with Rose as a champion with a rate of 320 MHz.
Essential oils in the higher frequency ranges are great for emotional healing. They are helpful for dislodging past traumas for release.
Essential oils in the lower frequencies have more effect on structural and physical plane, including cells, hormones, and bones, as well as viruses and bacteria. They also help to clear out the toxins.
Maitri Verde’s aromatherapy blends are synetrgetic combinations of high frequency essential oils chosen for their unique abilities to address a certain emotional imbalance and help in achieving desired shift or therapeutic effect. Using them daily, topically or simply inhaling the aroma, can raise your vibration and allow the soul to forgive, forget and release on so many levels. And as we know with most emotional and physical blocks (and disease), the first step to healing is to release denial and begin to forgive ourselves.
When an essential oil is inhaled, the odor molecules travel up your nose where they are trapped by olfactory membranes. These impulses are carried to the limbic system and the olfactory sensory center at the base of the brain. From the limbic system, odor messages go to the hypothalamus, which sends messages to the other parts of the brain (pituitary, pineal, and amygdala) and body, stimulating the autonomic nervous system (ANS), endocrine system, organ functions, secretions of antibodies, neurotransmitters, hormones and enzymes throughout the body.
The amygdala acts as the storehouse of traumas and contains the densest concentration of neuropeptides – the neurotransmitters that act in emotional signals. This high concentration of neuropeptides can affect cellular memory: The amygdala receives incoming scent information before the higher brain centers and activates the autonomic nervous system in response to either pleasant or traumatic memories before any information reaches the decision-making cortex. Smell, not sound, is the primary sense that unconsciously activates and affects traumatic memories stored in the amygdala and can be used to heal traumatic memories stored in the brain center as well.
Plant medicine is based on a relationship between the plant, the healer and the person needing healing. It is a three-way relationship.

Sourcing Essential Oils
Client's health and safety is Maitri Verde's top priority. So is the respect to the plant's life, energy and safety of plant's population in wilderness.
It is important for the work I do that the oils used in the healing products contain the intelligence of the plant, not just the chemical compounds. To craft a superior product takes time, immense knowledge, continual dedication, an open heart, and pure passion. Truly talented distillers and producers are also artists and scientists, always sustainability and community minded.
If you purchase remedies made from plants, including essential oils, it is crucial that you educate yourself enough to make an informed choice, for your own health and for that of the planet.
