- [Lorie] Although essentialoils are the latest
health craze, they've actually been around
for thousands of years.
In fact, they're mentioned morethan 300 times in the bible.
Through the ancientprocess of distillation,
essential oils harness thehealing power of the growing
things God placed on the earth.
Flowers, and shrubs,trees, roots, and bark.
The more than 50 essentialoils on the market today
are used to cure dozens of health issues
from acid reflux to warts.
Not to mention, they'reability to clean our homes
and our bodies withoutusing toxic chemicals.
- Well Lorie's here with us.
Lorie, it's always a joy to see you.
You've come up with these essential oils,
look, how do you know these things are
the real goods?
You can scam these thingspretty well can't you?
- That is actually the best question.
And you went right tothe heart of the matter.
So many cheap imitations out there.
And not only do the cheapies not work,
they don't give you themedicinal properties.
They're actually harmful to you.
So you've gotta stay away fromthe artificial fragrances,
and one great way tochoose the right kind of
essential oils is to make sure
they're USDA certified organic.
My favorite type ofessential oil is called
ancient apothecary, andyou can see the little USDA
organic sign on it.
These are made by Doctor JoshAx, who is a friend of mine.
He's a Christian, he's a manof honesty and integrity,
so you really need to trust the oils.
- He's got a website, you can buy
them off his website, right?
- Yes you can, and hehas wonderful videos to
show how to use them.
He has this fantastic,this is my favorite book
on the subject.
He talks about howessential oils were used
in the bible so many times.
- Talk about the ancient,who in the ancients
has used them, and wherethey were referred to.
- Quick answer, everybody all the time.
- Well that took care of that.
- God created them onthe third day with all
the vegetation and hecreated so many things
that grow that all havemedicinal properties,
different plants and thingshave different medicinal
properties, and peopleused them all the way
back in ancient times,King David, King Solomon.
Of course, we know theWise Men brought mure
and frankincense to Jesus.
And there's every reasonto believe that mure
and frankincense atthe time were every bit
as valuable as gold.
The other gift that they brought him,
and because of medicinal properties.
- Well how did they did distill that oil?
How did they get it?
- Well that's a great question.
What they do is they boilwater and then they put the
leaves, or whatever aboveit, and then it evaporates.
And then it's cooled, andthen when it condenses
the water goes down andthe essential goes up.
Because oil and water separate.
- Our news director came to see me,
he said you put me onto something.
He was having stomachproblems, and I said there's
something called oil of oregano.
And you take eight drops ofthat in a glass of water,
and it'll kill every bug thatever grew in your stomach
that's bad--- Right.
- One night I was so sick,I had the most awful,
I went out to dinner, andall I could eat was one
tablespoon of soup, beansoup, I couldn't eat another
thing I was at the dinnerI couldn't eat a thing.
And I took eight drops of oil of oregano
in a glass of water, nextmorning I was completely
well, I was hungry as ahorse and I'd just had
a great big breakfast, it was amazing.
- It's absolutely great.
And I want to talk about oregano here,
this is, I love it so muchbecause of exactly what you said.
This is natures antibiotic,it fights all kinds
of infection, flu, cold,bacterial, parasites.
Like worms, fungal infections,like yeast infections.
- [Pat] It'll kill all that?
- All of that, it's fantastic,it's a little bit strong
so it's not for pregnantwomen, nursing mothers,
infants and children,and you should only do it
for 10 days at a time,then take a week off.
And then go back on it.
You can do it prophylactically to prevent,
or as you used it, to heal,but you just, like you said,
put a few drops of oreganooil in some water and stir
it up, three times a dayfor 10 days at a time.
I wanted to talk about anotherone, which you mentioned,
and I know you love it,which is lavender oil.
Lavender oil is the most consumed
oil in the world right now.
And for good reason, itis fantastic for sleep,
anxiety, and PTSD, it'seven been shown to reduce
PTSD in people because it lowers cortisol,
the stress hormone, and raises melatonin
which helps us sleep.
A lot of people, including me,like to diffuse it at night.
This is a diffuser, andthis is actually my diffuser
which I use at night, andwhat you do is you just
put a little bit of water in it.
And then you put a fewdrops of your lavender oil,
you can see it's alreadystarting to bubble.
You put the lid on, and allthis wonderful evaporates
all night long.
- That's lavender oil in a diffuser.
Where do you get the diffuser?
- Well this diffuser is, Ibought, this is actually mine
I put this on my night stand every night.
I got the cheapest oneI could find because I'm
a penny pincher, but youcan buy beautiful ones
that are very ornate and decorative.
- This is a stripped down version.
- Yeah, this was likeless than $10 but kids
if you're watching, mommacould use an upgrade
of a diffuser for a Christmas present.
But yeah, I got that atAmazon, but you can get
them at Walmart, or reallyBed Bath and Beyond.
- And just a few dropsof that lavender oil?
- Yeah they say onlyabout three or four drops,
but I usually put in morethan that cause I just
love it so much I just sleep like a baby.
And by the way, speakingof Christmas gifts,
this is a wonderfulChristmas gift, this is the
reference book by Josh Axe, myfriend who makes these oils.
And who is a wonderfulman, very acknowledgeable
and it talks about all thedifferent essential oils
like rosemary, heres one.
It tells you all the thingsthat the essential oils
do in alphabetical oil,sandalwood, natural aphrodisiac.
And then, or if you're dealingwith a certain health issue,
you can go over here likemuscle aches, nausea.
All listed in alphabetical order.
So you can search--- What do they
recommend for muscle aches?
- Muscle aches is peppermint I believe.
Would you like me to look it up?
- [Pat] You can if you want to.
- And the good thingabout this is usually,
and thanks be to the lord for this,
it's not usually just one thing.
So if you don't have one,says here muscle aches,
peppermint, yay, I got it right.
Pop quiz, cyprus, margarineand lemon grass, and lavender.
- [Pat] Okay.- Another one of the
wonderful, wonderfulessential oils, another one
of my very favorites is frankincense.
And this is called the king of oils,
this particular oil wasmentioned more than 100 times
in the bible, becauseit's anti-inflammatory
and it helps with brain health including
warding off things likeAlzheimer's and dementia.
And also, it's even beenshown to kill breast cancer
cells, frankincense, it's sowonderful and what you can
do with frankincenseis just put a few drops
on your hands, put it on your neck.
And what's so wonderfulabout essential oils,
is they have really smallmolecules so they sink
down in your cells, in your tissues, even
in your bloodstream andthey evaporate really
rapidly to so you can smell them.
It gets in your olfactorysystem which is directly
tied to your--- You just rub them
on your neck?- Some of them you can
rub directly onto your skin,some of them are a little bit,
they can cause some skin irritation.
So again, consult the referencebook, because sometimes
you'll need to dilutethem with something like
coconut oil or cohoba oil.
- Dig into my pocket, I'm gonna show you,
since you've been on thisthing, I decided I was gonna
follow Lorie and I have inmy hand four of those little
bottles.- Oh, you brought
your own stash.- You better believe it.
I got these from Doctor, ishe a Doctor Axe or is he--
- He is a doctor of natural medicine.
He has videos online which arefree, on the YouTube channel,
he demonstrates all this, he's wonderful.
- All right, I take twoof these and I've got,
let's see what have I got here, there's
something called holy basil, its so funny
I tell my wife, I'vegot holy basil and then
rosemary, and here is the frankincense.
And what else do I have, well tumeric,
I've got--- Oh tumeric,
that's so good for you.
Good for your brain.
- But anyhow, the amazing thing about this
is I want to show youladies and gentleman,
it takes one drop of thesepuppies, you see that little
you put it up and one drop comes out
and you've got a drop on your finger.
- [Lorie] Yeah, it's super concentrated.
- And I put it right undermy nose before I sleep
and I mix them up two ofthem, sleep like a baby.
- Good for you, I'm so happy for you.
- I'm happy for you causeyou brought these at me.
- What an endorsement,now let's talk about some
other medicinal, I've got morein my little demonstration.
Lemon, so wonderful for coughs,and a great way to use lemon
also lemon is great forrelieving nausea as well.
It's been shown torelieve morning sickness
for women who are pregnant.
And then digestive issues like IBS,
irritable bowel syndromeand a great way to relieve
your cough, so you don't haveto buy the cough medicine
is just a few drops oflemon in some hot water,
a little bit of organic honey.
And yeah, you just mixthat up there and drink it
and it coats your throat,it's a great cough reliever.
- It's lemon oil and honey?
- Yeah, lemon oil is the key ingredient.
And then honey, and then this ylang ylang,
which is, ylang ylang.
This grows in thePhilippines, and Indonesia
and it's a beautiful flower.
It's great for cardiovascular health,
it's a natural aphrodisiac, and so it also
improves your self confidence.
These essential oils reallydo affect your moods,
the lavender makes youcalm, peppermint gives you
an energy boost, makes you--
- Now you just put that on your wrist?
- I do, I mixed a littlebit of ylang-ylang
with hohoba oil and Iput it in one of these
cute little roller ballthings which again,
you can get anywhere, I meanthey sell them at Walmart
or at the Vitamin storeand so these, this natural
aphrodisiac is great ifyou're trying to catch a mate.
Or if you already haveone and they're trying to
get them interested again.
- You give that to your mate,or you keep it for yourself.
- So you might want tocarry a big stick because
you'll have to fight offthe men if you use this.
Sandalwood is anothergreat aphrodisiac and it
raises testosterone,claire sage is great for
lowering estrogen for peoplewho are having infertility
issues, there are so manythings and that's again
why I recommend this book so highly.
It's a great Christmaspresent because it tells
you all of the essentialoils, what they do.
And then you can crossreference it for whatever
kind of ailment you have,what oil are good for it.
- Doctor Axe says that too right?
- This is his book, and he is the author,
Doctor Josh Axe, and it's really wonderful
all the things.
But you do have to be carefulbecause they are medicines.
And they were used asmedicines all throughout
biblical times.- You've got so many,
aphrodisiacs, you'llhave a whole group of men
chasing you through thestudio, we'll have to have a
guard protecting you.
- But then when I don'twear it, nobody notices me.
- This is fun, it really is fun.
I gotta get one of those--- diffusers.
- Yeah that's one.- these are great,
they make really pretty ones.
- I can testify, I sleep more soundly.
Two drops, just mix thetwo of those things.
Frankincense and one of the others.
- Lavender is the big sleep aid.
And I've heard so manypeople who can attest
to the fact that they slept poorly before,
they started using thelavender oil at night and they
sleep really well now.
And it really does work,I did forget to mention
one more thing, peppermint.
Peppermint is great forheadaches and as you mentioned
for some other kinds of digestive issues,
and again, peppermintdoes boost your energy,
it's a pick me up.
But a great way to usepeppermint is just put it on
one of these warmcompresses, just a few drops.
And then put it on yourtemples, on your forehead,
the bk of your neck, thepeppermint, smell it.
Doesn't it smell like Christmas?
- Woo wee, that'ssomething nice, all right.
Well Lorie, we had a huge, when we offered
that book about the gut flora,we jammed the telephones,
we had more calls thanI think we've ever had
in the history of CBN, thousands of people
called to get that gut flora thing.
- Well good because it'simportant information
this is one of the most important topics.
And I really, you werethe one who suggested
call me up and said wouldyou please do some stories
on this, and I do believethe lord put that in
your heart just like withthe essential oils piece.
People think that Icome up with this stuff,
it's not me, it's him, hecalls me, says do a thing
on essential oils.
- I'm onto these thingsand all I do I just push
the button and Lorie's up frontwith this wonderful stuff.
The diseases, Parkinson's for example.
You were saying and we were saying
that you fix the gutflora and does it actually
- Well there's absoluteevidence that shows that
healing the gut florahaving a healthy gut flora,
you're intestinal flora, thegood bacteria in your gut
prevents Alzheimer's,Parkinson's, all kinds of
other neurodegenerativediseases, ALS, and so forth.
There's reason tobelieve that if you catch
these things in their earlystages, that you can reverse
some of the symptoms.
But clearly prevention is definite.
Curing it, not as muchbecause once these brain cells
die, it's hard to bring them back to life.
But Pat, I will tell you,our brain cells start
to die 10 years before westart to have symptoms.
So by the time youstart having symptoms,--
- [Pat] It's too late.
- We really need to focus on prevention.
- Okay, well you're gonnacome back, we're gonna talk
about the epigenetics,you've got a whole series
on that.- So exciting, so exciting.
People are like what are epigenetics?
Epigenetics means you canturn off or on your genes.
So let's say for examplethe Alzheimer's gene,
you can suppress it and youdon't have to get Alzheimer's.
- When will you be with us on that one?
- Probably within thenext two or three weeks.
