SummerCooking#EssentialOils#Chicken Chili Recipe

Monday, June 17th, 2013

Cooking with essential oils is rather easy, it is a way  to add  a bit of spice to your own recipes.  There are a few tips to using essential oils in your cooking.

The amount to use, start with one drop, add more to taste.  The only exception to this rule is oregano, put a toothpick in the essential oil and stir that into your sauce or other recipe. Oregano is a very hot and potent oil and needs to be used to taste.

The ideal time to add essential oils in your cooking is at the end or when the food has been cooking for a while.  If you use it at the beginning of your cooking you may need to add more because some of the oil will evaporate during cooking.

I add Therapeutic Grade “Essential Oils to my summer dishes. They will enhance everything, from upgrading your culinary creations, to creating an inviting aromatic atmosphere.”

The Aromatic Influence of Basil is that it helps maintain an open mind and increases clarity of thought.

Basil is valued for its restorative and calming properties, basil can sooth sore muscles and joints, to ease breathing, and as a cooling agent for the skin.

Chicken Chili Ingredients:

  • 3 chopped yellow onions (1 1/2- 2 recommended)
  • ¼ cup olive oil, plus extra for chicken
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded, and large-diced
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, cored, seeded, and large-diced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. dried red pepper flakes or to taste
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tsp. salt, plus more for chicken
  • 2 28-ounce cans whole peeled plum tomatoes in puree, undrained
  • 5 drops Basil Essential Oil
  • 4 split chicken breasts, bone in, skin on
  • Freshly ground pepper

Directions:

Cook the onions in the olive oil over medium-low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the bell peppers, chili powder, cumin, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, and salt. Cook for 1 minute. Crush the tomatoes by hand or in batches in a food processor (don’t pulse for too long if using a processor-doing it in by hand is recommended). Add tomatoes and basil oil. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and place on baking sheet. Season generously with salt and pepper. Roast chicken for 30 to 35 minutes until cooked. After letting it cool for a few minutes, remove bone and skin and shred or cut into chunks. Add chicken to the chili and simmer for another 20 minutes. Enjoy!

 

 

Basil has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma known to enhance memory function while reducing stress and tension. Basil provides restorative benefits to both the mind and body due to its high linalool content, making it an ideal application for sore muscles and joints and to reduce tension when applied to the temples and back of the neck. Basil is commonly used in cooking to add a fresh, herbal flavor to meats, pastas, and entrée dishes, but it is also cooling to the skin and can be used to soothe minor irritations. When diffused, Basil helps promote clear breathing and healthy respiratory function while sharpening focus and lessening stress. USES • Diffuse to sharpen focus while studying or reading. • Apply to minor skin irritations. For sensitive skin, dilute with dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil. • Apply to fatigued or sore muscles and joints. • Diffuse or apply topically to promote clear breathing.

Medicinal Properties In Essential Oils

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Ancient literature shows that the Egyptians were masters at blending aromatic oils, they may have been the first people to discover the healing properties in the plants that produce essential oils.

In 1922 when King Tut’s tomb was opened, they discovered an abundance of alabaster jars that were filled with about 100 gallons of essential oils.

“The Ebers Papyrus medical scroll reveals that Egyptian healers had a remarkably high success rate, treating as many as eighty-one diseases using oils of frankincense, cinnamon, myrrh, rosemary, galbanum, hyssop, cassia, and spikenard often mixed with honey.”  As doctor James L. Geiger, the oil/MD talks about in his book ” Your Doctor’s Natural Guide To A Longer, Healthier Life.”  The Sweet Smell of Success

How are essential oils being integrated into modern medicine to improve patient care?

The chemistry behind therapeutic grade essential oils is being examined by the medical community. Essential oils as Dr. Geiger explained to me “are very versatile, one oil can simultaneously enhance the cellular immune system (increases lymphocytes)  while eradicating infectious organisms.”

A wellness project that was broadcast by  Fox News reported on the study that was done at the Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville Tennessee. The medical center studied essential oils to see what affect they would have in their emergency room.

The study was done to help decrease stress and help increase energy. They ran the study by placing aromatherapy diffusers around the emergency room, and diffusing them.

The results surprised many of the 100 emergency room staff.

Before the study 41% of the emergency room staff were stressed at work, after diffusing the oils only 3% were stressed at work.

Prior to the study 60% of the emergency room staff were frustrated at work, after the diffusing of the essential oils only 6% were frustrated.

After observing closely the dramatic results from studies using essential oils, many health care providers and medical facilities are looking into how they might integrate essential oils into their private practices and their hospital settings.

Improvement for the work environment and to promote patient care outcomes should be in my opinion a necessary goal of all medical practices.

Wellness institutes like  California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, Ca are offering essential oil aromatherapy as a complimentary medicine approach in their overall medical plan.

A doctor I know has integrated essential oils into his practice, he uses the essential oil of Ginger on his patients in the operating room to avoid post surgery nausea and vomiting.  Dr. James L. Geiger, in his latest book The Sweet Smell of Success “Your Doctor’s Natural Guide to a Longer Healthier Life”, explains the scientific validity of using essential oils as an integrative therapy.

It is my passion to continue educating myself and others on the uses for therapeutic grade essential oils.

 

 

Promoting Wellness Through Nature

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Promoting Wellness Through Nature is a trademark of the OilMD, James L. Geiger MD .

Promoting “Essential Oils” for Healthy Aging is a passion of mine.

I use essential oils everyday, and frequently throughout my day for personal use and then at home I put essential oils in diffusers.

Essential oils are perfect to use as a mood booster, and they supply your home with wonderful smells as well as protection from airborne viruses and bacteria.

The benefits of essential oils in the home are fantastic if you want to live “green” it’s another avenue to stay healthy and reap the results for your entire family.

“Essential Oils” have so many healthful benefits.

I have been complimented many times for the calming, refreshing, mood boosting and aromatic atmosphere that I have in my home from the uses of essential oils.

At the top of my list to stay balanced throughout my day is the “Well Balanced Lady”  It will definitely lift you up and if you are experiencing PMS, Peri-Menopause, or Post Menopause it will help keep you feeling refreshed.

In February 2011 I wrote two blog posts on essential oils, Jasmine for Women and Essential Oils for Women and Men.  They are educating and inspiring.

We are aging, no one is immune from the aging process…so the phrase Anti-Aging really isn’t true in my opinion. The phrase “Healthy Aging”  I heard many years ago from Dr. Andrew Weil, so now I use it.

Healthy Aging makes perfect sense to me and the way we do it, is by taking care of ourselves on a daily basis. Of course there are many aspects to healthy aging.  A couple of the ones that come to mind are a positive attitude, exercise, healthy eating and the use of essential oils.

I would like to continue to show you the benefits of one of my favorite essential oils, ” Sandalwood” and its uses.

If you’re going to use essential oils use them throughout your day to get the full range of their benefits.

The Essential Oil of Sandalwood is extracted through steam distillation of pieces of wood from matured Sandal trees which are 40-80 years old (ideally it should be 80 years).

The OilMD’s “Well Balanced Lady” has sandalwood in it.  This is why I love it so much.

Organic Facts shows the capabilities of this unique essential oil.

carminativeis/ a herb or preparation that prevents formation of gas in the gastrointestinal tract.  diuretic/diuretics increase the excretion of water from the body, although each class does so in a distinct way.  disinfectant/ substance that is applied to non-living objects to destroy microorganisms that are living on the objects.  emollient/soothing to the skin expectorant/drains mucus from the lungs hypotensive/helps lower blood pressure.  memory booster/boosts memory.  sedative/ reduces irritability and excitement. tonic/An invigorating, refreshing, or restorative agent

I encourage you to stay on your quest for Healthy Aging.

Join me in a healthy living journey with essential oils.  I have an opportunity for you to be a consumer and/or business builder with do Terra Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils come visit Dr. Geiger and myself @http://www.mydoterra.com/oilmd/

Healthy Aging for Women and Men with Essential Oils

Friday, February 25th, 2011

I do promote Essential Oils for Healthy Aging because I have seen the results in myself, my family and friends.

Dr. James Geiger the oilMD offers in his book “The Sweet Smell of Success” guidance for the use of “Medical Aromatherapy in the 21st Century”.

“Essential oils are extracted oils from plants that give off aromatic and fragrant smells, they also act to normalize and regulate the systems of the body.”

“Essential oil phytomolecules impact intra-cellular synthesis pathways. Embodied in the chemical constituents found in these plant distillates are the energy and informational building blocks that produce complex emotional and intricate physiological effects in humans and animals.”

“Food is medicine. The FDA classifies essential oils as food. Learning the art and the science of aromatherapy is one avenue to increase health in this revolution of wellness.”

Essential oils are noted for their medicinal properties that  are exceedingly high in ORAC value (oxygen radical absorption capacity) to scavage free radicals associated with disease and aging.

Free radicals are harmful to the body. The human body is composed of many different types of cells.  Free radicals hurt these cells.

In brief “free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule, “stealing” its electron. When the “attacked” molecule loses its electron, it becomes a free radical itself, beginning a chain reaction. Once the process is started, it can cascade, finally resulting in the disruption of a living cell. Of particular importance is that free radical damage accumulates with age.

“Essential oils have crossover properties in clinical areas, for instance, oils of ginger, helichrysum and frankincense are true dual inhibitors of inflammation.”

“Since virtually all pain is due to inflammation, it is particularly dangerous when that inflammation in the human body is stealth enough that it does not cause pain. Because silent inflammation in the human body mostly means silent damage.” In my opinion this could mean silent disease.

In closing I would like to encourage you to make yourself your number one priority on a daily basis and use Essential oils and Essential nutrition. It is extremely important for healthy aging.

The Benefits of Jasmine Essential Oil for Women

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Here’s the perfect gift for your lady any time of year.

Learning about the essential oil of Jasmine may be the perfect gift for your loved one.

The Well Balanced Lady with its wonderful qualities for women has in it the essential oil of Jasmine along with other unique oils from the oilMD.

The Well Balanced Lady will relieve you of your hot flashes and it offers along with that a feeling of all over balance when used throughout your day.

Let me tell you the benefits of Jasmine as talked about in Organic Facts.

“The health benefits of Jasmine Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties like anti depressant, anti septic, aphrodisiac, anti spasmodic, cicatrisant, expectorant, galactogogue, emenagogue, parturient, sedative and uterine.”

Each of these benefits from Jasmine suit women perfectly because as women we want to take care of ourselves and our families, the benefits of this essential alone can contribute to keeping our families healthy, as much as healthy eating, and exercise.

Let me begin describing the benefits of Jasmine:

Aphrodisiac

Anti depressant

Anti spasmodic/asthma symptoms

Calms your body from the stress of daily living

Sedative

Facilitates and eases birth/ reduces labor pains

Lactating mothers benefit by it’s ability to increase milk production

Relieves pain from menses

Peri-Menopause and Menopause

Uterine Health

Dry skin treatment

Helps you sleep better

Cold relief by helping as an expectorant, it reduces phlegm in the nasal and respiratory tracts.

Scars from acne or wounds, it helps fade of them

Antiseptic & disinfectant, it has bactericidal, viral, germicidal, and fungicidal properties.

Just imagine all these wonderful benefits from the essential oil of Jasmine, as Dr Geiger mentions in his book “The Sweet Smell of Success” essential oils promote wellness through nature.

Essential oils diluted with jojoba oil in 10% solution of essential oils are great used as a perfume or mixed with a quality body lotion.  Uses for essential oils in your home range from cleaning with antibacterial oils to a romantic massage.

***Spring is here and summer is just around the corner.  Try making large pots of Jasmine Green Tea.  Let the water boil then add in one tea bag per cup. Turn water off put lid on pot, steep.  Let the tea cool to room temperature before putting it into small containers, then refrigerate.  Add lime or lemon.  These two teas are so good together plus nutritious, delicious,  and a cool and refreshing drink.

I use a 4 qt or 8 qt pot and add both green tea and jasmine tea.This is also an excellent way to have antioxidant protection along with all the wonderful benefits of jasmine.

The “Wellness Revolution”

Monday, January 24th, 2011

The “Wellness Revolution” many of us may say, finally how come it took so long? I personally have been waiting since the late 60’s.

I am inspired to get as much knowledge as possible to those that are interested in health and wellness. We specifically want to educate about essential juices and essential oils. The oilMD in his book Health Secrets shares the importance of these two essentials for your life. http://www.oilmd.com/ In my opinion they are a daily requirement for healthy living which corresponds to healthy aging. Isn’t this what everyone is looking for, the fountain of youth?

The term anti-aging isn’t true, there isn’t one of us who can say that we aren’t aging. The term that I like to repeat when I educate is healthy aging. Healthy Aging focuses on the whole person, what I mean by that is it is important to realize that we are all aging, yes there is botox and plastic surgery available so that we can look younger, that’s wonderful, but to focus too much on aging in a negative way can create negative energy.

A couple of years ago I was in a seminar with Les Brown.
As a renowned professional speaker, author and television personality, Les Brown has risen to national prominence by delivering a high energy message which tells people how to shake off mediocrity and live up to their greatness. It is a message Les Brown has learned from his own life, and one that he is helping others apply to their lives.

One of the messages that I heard him speak about was “How To Make Yourself Your # 1 Priority.

This had a great impact on my life. So much so that I think I’ve shared it since then probably a dozen or more times.

The plain and simple is that we do need to make ourselves our #1 priority everyday with eating properly, making time to exercise and definitely we need to keep a positive mental attitude with a heart of gratitude


Aromatherapy Enhances Women’s Health

Monday, January 24th, 2011

“Aromatherapy is an aid to general health and beauty, which enhances personal preventative healthcare. Safe practical choices in clinical aromatherapy with essential oils from plants can be extrapolated from evidenced based clinical references which may be integrated into the management of various common symptoms and conditions. For individuals with pre-existing medical conditions, great care must be taken to evaluate and determine which oils are appropriate and how to administer them. Both complementary alternative medicine and allopathic medicine are making advances towards integration of therapies with oils.” Dr. James L Geiger, the oilMD.

I want to talk specifically about the essential oil blend “Well Balanced Lady”

All women starting during puberty can support their lives with “Well Balanced Lady” essential oil blend.

The blend of these oils works through the receptors in the brain to relieve symptoms brought on by PMS, peri menopause, menopause and post menopause.

Using plant based oils through out your day instead of perfume is one way that many women stay smelling fresh and support their bodies to be free from the bothering symptoms we try and ignore but can’t throughout our lives.

Frequent use is the key….

The Healing Benefits of Essential Oils

Sunday, April 4th, 2010
The Healing Benefits of Essential Oils Are Numerable
Aromatherapy has given me solid health benefits in a number of ways ever since the first day I started using them.
I will continue to use them every single day because of their healing benefits. I use them as my perfume, no more synthetic fragrance for me; I want the natural fragrance that will give both a wonderful scent and the healing balm my body deserves.
1.  A health benefit: they are healing after a burn. Tremendous is the word that comes to mind here,  if used immediately no blisters form. E.O’s help with scrapes and cuts too because they heal quicker when used right after the injury.
2. A health benefit: menopause symptoms; anxiety, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, coping with stress, and weight gain.
These aren’t just words, the symptoms that go along with menopause can be detrimental to a women’s health.
For instance waking every night at 3 am wide awake and then having to function the next day, and this happens day after day.
Next the feeling of intense anxiety, all of a sudden, you feel a surge of anxiety even in a relaxed state which lasts anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes, several times a day.
Some women have to get a prescription for tranquilizers to help them cope.
This would be a form of illness in my opinion.  And on top of that what is the chemical from the drug doing to your body.  Wouldn’t it make perfect sense to use nature as your healing balm like therapeutic essential oils instead.
On top of this another symptom of menopause is waking in the morning with such an intense feeling of anxiety as if you had just worked a 16 hour day; this was one of the worst symptoms for me personally.
The anxiety causes many women hundreds of dollars trying to figure out why. But I used essential oils the minute the feeling would come on and it would vanish.
My only regret is that I wish I had known about them when my symptoms first started.  I had a couple of years without them so when I did find them they were a God send.
PMS:  Essential oils help women of all ages with this monthly issue.  Use essential oils on the body after your bath, and during your day as often as you can.  I have found that using them in a diffuser during these difficult days can without a doubt help with these monthly symptoms.
3. A health benefit: Using essential oils during the cold and flu season helped my family; I have three children and using them in a diffuser that will go off every 15 to 30 minutes per hour gives your home a wonderful scent as well as the healing benefits because the oils used get rid of bacteria and virus in the air.
The second benefit here is that the virus or bacteria doesn’t take out the entire family for a day or more and having them miss work or school.
So why spend so much money on commercial products when you can get the healing benefits from cleaning with essential oils, there perks are numerable.  Using them in the home for cleaning removes bacteria, virus and cleans the air.
4.  A health benefit:  Ginger in particular helps with nausea from car sickness and cruise sickness, nausea during pregnancy, high altitude sickness and migraines, it is also an anti-inflammatory.  These are health issues that people seek help from their physicians for and receive medicine  because the symptoms are so extreme.  But nature at its best can do what medicine can’t do, I would call that healing.
5. Essential oils have multiple cross over properties as I’ve mentioned above about ginger.  Lavender also has more than one benefit, it is a pain killer, healing balm to burns and it is an antihistamine to name a few.
When a simple solution would be to frequently use essential oils to heal your body of these disturbing symptoms why not?
Essential oils are healing balms.
How many women go through this; I would definitely say without hesitation that even though menopause is not considered a sickness; the symptoms we get as women can affect us as if they were.
I’m not leaving out men, essential oils have benefits for you too.
For further instructions on the benefits of essential oils buy Dr. James Geiger’s book, “The Sweet Smell of Success” to learn more about the health benefits of essential oils.

Eating the South Beach Diet Way

Monday, March 1st, 2010

A couple of years back I wanted to lose the weight I hadn’t been able to lose since I had my last child, so I decided to check out the South Beach Diet.

The First Phase of this diet is to stop cravings, it is fourteen days without bad carbs, bad fats, baked goods, alcohol, fruit or sugar.  The purpose again is to stop cravings.

The Second Phase you gradually add some foods back in, SB has daily meal plans to help you.  They also have lists of foods that you can enjoy on each phase and foods to avoid.

Phase III is designed for maintenance, and designed to last the rest of your life.   It worked for me.  Unfortunately over a two year period the weight crept back up.  It’s because I was unaware of a few food allergies that I had and adding these foods back in brought the weight back up.  I could probably live with this extra weight for the rest of my life but a few pounds off will definitely be better for healthy aging.

I just read an article from Real Age and just a mere 4 pounds can have huge benefits.

This new study “showed that dropping a mere 4 pounds could cut hypertension risk by 8 percent in middle-aged people and by 11 percent in the 50-plus set.”

“Of course, bigger weight loss had even better blood pressure benefits in the 8-year study. For example, losing 15 pounds reduced high blood pressure risk by 21 percent in the middle-aged folks. Better yet, people 50 to 65 who were 15 pounds thinner enjoyed an even more impressive 29 percent risk reduction. And isn’t it great to know that a realistic mini goal of 4 pounds will still bring big health benefits on the road to 15 lbs.”

I’ve never had to diet so thinking of a diet kinda spooked me, a week without fruit or bread, potatoes, rice and pasta?  As if the world would come crashing down after 14 days without these foods.  It is crazy the way we think isn’t it?

Healthy Aging is my theme here on the Ideal Scents Blog and I have come to the conclusion after starting this new way of eating again that it is truly a great way of eating.  I once heard this and totally agree; eat to live, not live to eat.  Makes perfect sense to me.  Since I eat mostly natural and organic foods anyway it may seem strange that those of us who do eat very healthy may still need to lose weight but we do.  We can still eat too many natural grains or sugar, even if it is honey or organic sugar.  It still adds pounds.

In the South Beach Diet Book it talks about emotional eating, this is a whole other topic but one that is crucial in our thinking if we are going to succeed, so I highly recommend reading the book if you are planning on starting this new phase of your life.

So I started this new plan again 8 days ago and it is remarkable what I have discovered for myself.  I have discovered that the fiber in the vegetables is what fills me up, plus the protein I eat at each meal.  The sweet treats that you can have with this first phase are also new for me.  For the past couple of months I had decided to make my after meal sweet treats fruit, low glycemic fruit, so I’m looking forward to phase two so I can add those back in.

What definitely has helped this time around is the on line support from the South Beach community.  It is fantastic to be able to ask questions and get answers within hours of asking.  You get support from those who have lost any where from 5, 10 or even  100+ pounds.  They help you stay on track with encouragement, experience and great ideas.  It’s a win win situation.

So is the South Beach Diet a diet or a new way of living?  It is definitely a new way to eat.  Eating this way keeps the balance that we need without over doing it.

It has been so successful because people lose weight, stop cravings and learn the healthy way to eat,  live healthy food.

Ideal Scents has always taught that we need to eat properly to live a long healthy life and this support from the South Beach Diet, I guarantee can change your life.

Adding exercise to this program can get you on track for a new you, a brand new life with a healthy outlook.  Free from the diseases that being overweight can bring.

I would consider this a preventative medicine lifestyle.

In his book James Geiger MD, The oilMD discusses Worldwide Wellness, he speaks about obesity.

I like this quote that he mentions in the beginning of chapter three.

“The art of healing comes from nature and not from the physician.  Therefore, the physician must start from nature with an open mind.” Paracelsus

There are many diets out there, the problem I see with some of those diets is that you are eating pre-packaged food, its processed. We need live healthy fresh food daily.

Even with these good fresh foods we still need to use supplements because of the depletion of nutrients in our soil, so it is crucial for preventative living that we eat sensible, not just for satisfaction. Eating for satisfaction will just keep us over weight and in risk of disease. Remember our goal is healthy aging.  Imagine at 80+ enjoying your life with friends and family.

Here’s to healthy aging, a new way of living for more energy, feeling good in your clothes, and the satisfaction that you are in control of your life.
