Our Body and Cypress Essential Oil

“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2)

God truly wants us to know about ourselves and how He provides tools for maintaining our own temples.

Outside appearances of buildings or houses often give an indication of whether the structure is or is not well maintained.

God asks each of us to keep our bodies as a temple, a holy place where He dwells. Our mind is also our personal temple.

* Who is responsible for the care of our body temples?

* Who is the one designated to take precautionary and preventative measures to preserve our bodies in a healthy state and to seek appropriate remedies when repair is needed?

* Who must be the first to take responsibility for the diagnosing and treatment of any illness in our bodily temples?

* Who must ultimately be the one to choose our medicines and remedies to keep our temples sound, vigorous and in good repair?

WE ARE!! Not any doctor or another individual! It is called “Personal Responsibility.”

It is God’s desire that we be in good health, both physically and mentally. It is our duty and responsibility to build, maintain, and repair our body temples.

Essential oils were a part of daily worship in the Temple of the Israelites and were responsible for maintaining a healthy environment there.

What do you think about essential oils as a part of your daily life as tools, provided by God, to maintain a healthy environment in body and mind?

Are you ready to commit to keeping better care of your temple?

“He hewed him down cedar, and takes the cypress and the oak, which he strengthened for himself among the trees of the forest. He plants an ash (Pine) and the rain nourishes it” (Isaiah 44:14).

Cypress (cupressus sempervirens)  The Greek word “sempervirens,” from which the botanical name is derived, means, “live forever.”

The oil of Cypress has been used since ancient times for purification and as incense. It is one of the most used oils for the circulatory system. Because it assists in moving stagnant matter, it actually assists many systems of the body: circulatory, digestive, urinary, and skin. It also helps with cellulite, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, fluid retention, constipation, edema, excessive perspiration, and much more. It is also effective for muscles and joints, arthritis, the respiratory system, the reproductive system and the nervous system.

Medical properties: Improves circulation and strengthens blood capillaries, anti-infectious, antispasmodic, discourages fluid retention, supports the nerves and intestines.

Other uses: Diabetes, circulatory disorders, cancer (jean Valnet, MD), grounding, stabilizing, menstrual cramps, pancreas insufficiencies, liver disorders, gallbladder, ovarian cysts.

* When inhaling its fragrance it eases the felling of loss and creates a sense of security and grounding. It also helps heal emotional trauma, calms and soothes anger, and helps life flow better.

* Use one or two drops and apply as a deodorant

* Apply a drop to a minor injury to facilitate healing and prevent infection

* Apply neat or dilute on area to ease cramping

* Rub around nasal area to help control nose bleeds (avoid getting in eyes)

* Help relieve chest discomfort and or bronchitis by rubbing on the chest area

* Help strengthen blood capillaries and increase circulation by rubbing Cypress, neat or mixed with a carrier oil, on location

* Mix several drops with a carrier oil and apply as an insect repellant

* Diffuse or inhale directly from the bottle to help with insomnia

With the continual bombardment of viral, bacterial, parasitic, and fungal contamination in this world, God has provided an answer for this perplexing problem.

He has created these oils to serve as a shield of protection for our bodies and our homes from the onslaught of pathogens, and to offer support to the immune system for tough times ahead.

Are you ready to commit to taking better care of your body/mind temple?
