Believe It Or Don't
Greetings fellow inhabitants of planet Earth.
My name is Daniel, aka Murph,
founder of Murph’s Remedy Emporium
As you may know, our bodies; skin, kidneys, pancreas, stomach, liver, intestines, heart, lymphatic system, brain and et al, are bombarded with chemicals and foreign “stuff” from one source or another daily. Hmm, disorder of body part, you have. Take this pill. Don’t worry, the side effects should disappear in a little while. If not, we can give you this capsule which will illuminate several of the side effect of pill # 1. But it has side effects too. Not only prescribed chemicals, but they put inorganic substances in there too like fillers and colors. Two things are better than those inorganic substances, CBD’s & essential oils. The CBD supply chain is already in operation and I’m not going there. I’m going essential oils. It’s like the ocean. We all know it is there but we don’t know what is beneath the surface. The ocean and essential oils should both be further explored. We should taper back on NASA and start looking in to the ocean in my opinion. I first became familiar with essential oils when I ran a local massage supply store. I sold essential oils but was skeptical of their benefits at first. Over time, I talked with customers who used them and tried them out myself. I soon became a believer! I sold products that were topical pain relievers, most of which contained menthol as the active ingredient. Menthol works like this. The body hurts and sends a pain sign al to the brain. You put on menthol and it sends a cooling sensation to the brain. When the menthol wears off, the pain is still there because menthol is only masking the pain and does nothing about the pain itself. I also sold ibuprofen gel and lidocaine creme. Both were pricey. Murph's All Pain & Arthritis contains essential oils to relax muscles, release muscle spasms, anti-inflamatories and oil for pain. I used the menthol analgesics plus the ibuprofen gel and lidocaine cream and found them ok but still lacking healing qualities. They fight the pain but didn't treat the root cause. I thought there had to be something better and Murph's Remedies were born!
FRAGRANCES AND ALLERGIES
Symptoms of fragrance allergy
Sensitivities to perfumes or in general fragrances trigger various unpleasant reactions in people. Some common symptoms of perfume allergy include the following:
- mild to severe headache skin irritation, itching, and rashes sneezing, coughing and runny nose, also called allergic rhinitis breathing difficulties, dizziness, and fatigue muscle aches watery, red, and itchy eyes wheezing inability to concentrate swelling – or angioedema nausea and vomiting
Studies have shown that in people suffering from migraines, strong fragrances from perfumes or colognes can even trigger a migraine attack.
I don't have migraines but i have gotten instant headache from commercial fragrances
Fragrance chemicals etc
Perfumes contain a mix of several ingredients that include a complex blend of natural essences as well as synthetic chemicals. The average perfume or cologne contains about 14 secret chemical ingredients that are capable of triggering mild to severe allergic reactions in fragrance-sensitive individuals.
Some essential oils actually help alleviate the symptoms of allergies. So, if you have allergies the perfume you or somebody around you uses try aromatherapy with If you'd like to incorporate essential oils into your life to relieve allergy symptoms, here are a few you might want to try. I also have a blend for general allergies available in AromaHaler form.Lavender. Eucalyptus. … Tea tree oil. …Peppermint. … Lemon.
So, in conclusion, I would say my essential oil fragrances are hypo allergenic for the most part. I usually use organic fractionated coconut oil or cocoa butter as carriers. Small chance of allergenic reaction.
WHY USE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are the
Earth's natural medicine.
11 essential oils are mentioned in the Bible including frankincense, myrrh, hyssop and more. Essential oils have practically no side effects.
Many oils should not be used if pregnant, lactating, have very high blood pressure or seizure disorder. To this end I do not recommend the use of essential oils for these people.
And now some really good hard-core evidence from mostly well respected sources.
The effects of lavender scent on dental patient anxiety levels: a cluster randomised-controlled trial. 7, 2010. To review the effect of lavender scent on anticipatory anxiety in dental participants. In a randomized-controlled trial, 340 patients with dental anxiety were assessed while waiting for a scheduled dental appointment, either with use of lavender scent or not odor. Analysis showed that although both groups had similar, moderate levels of generalized dental anxiety the lavender group reported significantly lower current anxiety than the control group.
Anxiety Pre-Surgery effect of aromatherapy on patients awaiting ambulatory surgery: a randomized controlled trial. The aim of this study was to determine if aromatherapy could reduce preoperative anxiety in outpatient surgery patients. A total of 109 preoperative patients were randomly assigned to bergamot essential oil or a placebo (water vapor) and their responses to the State Trait Anxiety Inventory and vital signs were monitored. All those exposed to bergamot essential oil aromatherapy showed a greater reduction in preoperative anxiety than the control groups. Aromatherapy may be a useful part of a holistic approach to reducing preoperative anxiety before outpatient surgery.
Lavender essential oil in the treatment of migraine headache: a placebo-controlled clinical trial. European Neurology. , 2012.
Forty-seven patients with migraine headache were divided into two groups: 1) inhaled lavender essential oil for 15 min or 2) used liquid paraffin for the same time period. Patients were asked to record their headache severity and associated symptoms in 30-min intervals for a total of 2 hours. From 129 headache attacks in the lavender group, 92 responded entirely or partially to lavender. In the control group, 32 out of 68 headache attacks responded to placebo. The percentage of responders was significantly higher in the lavender group than the placebo group. Results suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches.
Murph’s note: gave a friend with arthritis some topical
arthritis remedy and an All-Pain AromaHaler. He uses the AromaHaler when he
gets migraines. A few inhales is all it takes for him. I also have Murph's Head & Toothache Remedy
University of Maryland What is the history of aromatherapy?
Essential oils have been used for therapeutic purposes for nearly 6,000 years. The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used them in cosmetics, perfumes, and drugs. Essential oils were also commonly used for spiritual, therapeutic, hygienic, and ritualistic purposes.
The chemistry of essential oils is influenced by the local geography and weather conditions, as well as the season and time of day when the plants are harvested, how they are processed, and how they are packaged and stored. Each plant is unique in its chemistry so essential oils are never exactly the same-this is different from pharmaceutical drugs that are synthetically reproduced to be identical every time.
Currently the International Standards Organization sets standards for each essential oil that include a range of acceptable concentrations for its major chemical constituents.
Benefits of aromatherapy
Answers from Brent A. Bauer, M.D.

However, some studies have shown that aromatherapy might have health benefits, including:Relief from anxiety and depression Improved quality of life, particularly for people with chronic health conditions Improved sleep
Smaller studies suggest that aromatherapy with lavender oil may help:Reduce pain for people with osteoarthritis of the knee Improve quality of life for people with dementia Reduce pain for people with kidney stones
