Since God gave us the plants, herbs, and trees that He spoke into existence at Creation, it makes sense that copycat chemicals made in a laboratory can’t compare with the amazing nature of essential oils. It also explains why many synthetic chemicals, which attempt to copy what God intricately created for the “service of man” (Psalm 104:14), often cause such devastating harm to our bodies. What God made is good – and He made it for us to use (Ezekiel 47:12)!
Because of the tiny molecular structure of the components of an essential oil they are extremely concentrated. One drop contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules. Numerically that is a 4 with 19 zeros after it. (40,000,000,000,000,000,000) We have one hundred trillion cells in our bodies, that’s a lot. But one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our body with 40,000 molecules. Considering that it only takes one molecule of the right kind to open the receptor site and communicate with the DNA to alter cellular function, you can see why even one drop or inhaling a small amount of oil vapor can have profound effects on the body, brain, and emotions.” – Dr. David Stewart Ph.D
