How I Cleared A Rat Infested House By Diffusing Essential Oils

If you have ever had a rat infestation in your building you know it can be slightly perturbing to say the least.

My wife and I had bought a building in downtown Toronto, Canada. We found out to our dismay there were rats in the walls. I called the city and I was told to cover over their entry ways with wire mesh and to use rat poison.

Which I did to the best of my ability. Trouble was, the rats were tunnelling in underground from the sewer system a and I had no idea of where their entrances were. For every rat I poisoned thousands more were available to take its place.

It was a futile effort and I was going nowhere.

Then I thought of diffusing essential oils. And it worked! Within 24 hours they were gone and they never returned. Watch the video.

Oregano Oil And The Pain In My Knee

Years ago I used to be a runner and I would pound the pavement for miles and miles. It all ended one spring day in 1996 when I injured my knee while I was doing my thing. For the past 14 years I’ve had a constant lingering pain in that right knee.

Recently I started consistently using oregano oil applied directly on my knee. About 6 drops once a day and I’ve had a substantial decrease in pain. I actually felt a difference almost immediately.

Joint pain may be related to the presence of a yeast organism called Candida. Yeasts are part of the fungal kingdom which includes mushrooms and molds.

Anyway, Candida exists normally to some extent in our bodies, but when our bodies go out of balance they can get really out of hand. For example, when we eat refined sugar, the Candida population explodes because they just thrive on the stuff. We can end up experiencing a number of symptoms including joint pain. See Alex Howard’s excellent article at naturalnews.com.

I’ve seen many people who have joint pain wearing copper bracelets. I’ve talked with quite a few and every one has told me the copper bracelet has helped decrease their joint pain. It just so happens that copper is an anti-fungal agent. Interesting!

Now, oregano oil happens to be a powerful anti-fungal agent. Just look at these properties:

  • anti-fungal
  • anti-viral
  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-parasitic
  • anti-inflammatory
  • immune stimulant

Just be careful if you use decide to use it. Even if you get small amounts on your fingers, do not touch anywhere near your eyes or sexual organs or you may feel some definite discomfort for awhile. Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!.

If you have applied it on your body and it causes any irritation at all the problem can usually be solved by spreading a small quantity of a vegetable oil, like olive or almond oil, over the area. Whew!

Some people are extremely sensitive to essential oils. If you had a lot of irritation just discontinue this method completely or use very tiny amounts.

I’ve talked in the past of how difficult it is to get good quality essential oils, even though the bottle says on it “All Natural” and so on. The main reason is that the world demand for essential oils has far outstripped the supply and what is most often sold now-a-days is diluted with chemicals or mass produced with somewhat less than the best methods.

If you are familiar with essential oils and already have a favourite oregano oil, go ahead and try it. If not, check out my site.

If you have a medical condition please seek professional advice.

Aromatherapy – Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil is one of my all time favourite natural remedies. The peppermint herb has been used for thousands of years as a digestive stimulant and is known as a tonic for the liver and gallbladder.

Just one drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea, so remember, this is pretty potent stuff. It means that my 15 ml bottle of oil below is equal to about 7000 cups of peppermint tea!

Peppermint oil is often used as a decongestant as it will relieve the stuffy nasal passages that many people get during hayfever season. It will improve mental concentration, relieve many headaches, lower a fever and even clear mucous from the lungs.

Peppermint oil will also relieve pain and inflammation when applied to a bruise or injury.

Many people do not know that peppermint oil has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal qualities, and has been used to expel intestinal worms. Peppermint oil has also been studied for its effects as  an anti-cancer agent

It is difficult to get essential oils that are not loaded with chemicals even if the label on the bottle says 100% pure (see a previous post). The world wide demand for essential oils has outstripped the supply by hundreds of times and the pressure to extend the oil with chemicals and use cheaper production methods is enormous. I buy from Young Living Essential Oils. You can order true peppermint oil here.

Aromatherapy – Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender oil is my favourite of all the essential oils. The smell of the real oil can lift you out of depression* and take you to a place of peace. A true oil free of chemicals is very calming, uplifts the spirit and is second to none when applied directly on a wound. A minor cut will heal quickly and with no infection or scarring. Lavender oil will also reduce the pain of the injury.

Lavender has the following properties:

  • speeds wound healing
  • anti-septic (kills microbes)
  • anti-fungal (kills fungus)
  • analgesic (relieves pain)
  • anti-depressant
  • anti-convulsant (reduces or prevents convulsions)
  • vasodilating (widens blood vessels, promotes blood circulation and decreases blood pressure)
  • relaxant
  • anti-inflammatory (reduces inflammation)
  • reduces blood cholesterol
  • combats excess sebum on skin

Lavender oil has been used for:*

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Mental fatigue
  • Panic attacks
  • Stress
  • Oily skin
  • Bruises
  • Stretch marks
  • Earache
  • Chickenpox
  • Hypertension
  • Vertigo
  • Whooping cough
  • Flatulence

*If you have a medical condition please seek the advice of a qualified health care practitioner.

Lavender Flowers

There is a significant problem in obtaining quality oils. Let me give an example.

Today much of the lavender oil sold in North America is obtained not from lavender, but from lavendin, grown and distilled in China, Russia, France and Tasmania. Lavendin produces 10 times as much oil as lavender so it is much cheaper but it  is also substantially different.

There are several problems for the lavendin growers.

  1. Lavendin oil contains a caustic compound called camphor. You can use lavender oil to heal even a third degree burn whereas lavendin oil will intensify the burn. So the lavendin growers heat their oil up to 17,000º C to “flash off” the camphor. In the process the oil is fractured and becomes therapeutically useless.
  2. Lavendin oil doesn’t smell quite the same as lavender oil, so the growers add up to 6% synthetic lenolol acetate and then market their product as pure lavender oil. It is a total scam.

This type of thing is happening with many oils all over the world. The result is you cannot trust the label on the bottle of oil you want to buy. You really have to know who you are buying from and how the plants were grown and processed. It is the reason why I use Young Living Essential Oils.

The demand for essential oils world wide has outstripped the supply and the pressure to use chemicals and high temperature / high pressure production methods is enormous. Small companies still have to compete with big time buyers on the world market and price rules. Big time.

 

Young Living Essential Oils – my all time favourite.
