Essential Oils and Homeopathy Jendi: Joette, my friends are talking about
essential oils, and I’d like to know your opinion of them. Joette: – this brings up a broader question.
And that is, what is my opinion on the use of other methods of alternative health. before
I learned homeopathy I used whatever means I had at the time. I depended on my homemade
meals and common sense methods to protect my kids immune systems, but when someone got
sick I employed botanicals. I wild crafted herbs from around my property like St. John’s
wort, coltsfoot, nettles and such and made them into tinctures so I always had a store
of quality homemade herbal medicines. I also had a store of essential oils for my
old fashioned vaporizer. The kind in the green glass container that I grew up with back in
the 50’s. As far as essential oils go, I began making
this lovely concoction that was not unlike one of the formulas produced by the large
essential oil companies. A friend of mine got me started on it and named it “Scoundrels”
with reference to the product with a similar name. “thieves” Now my father makes it
for most of us in the family. When he puts it in a mist bottle, he cleverly calls it
“Scoundrels in the Mist.” (ha,ha) You know, its
Clove Oil, Lemon Oil, Cinnamon Oil, Eucalyptus
and Rosemary. We use that to clean the air, on our hands when we travel and put a few
spritzes about us every once in a while during cold season. Love it! But I didn’t stop
there. Jendi: you spritz this around the room. Right?
Joette: Yes, I put a few drops in bath water or on a handkerchief and took sniffs, and
I might add a drop of an oil into a carrier oil such as coconut oil and rub into the skin,
but generally I don’t take or give them internally. That is, other than when I make
mint ice cream. I’m particularly concerned about using essential oils internally and
in great concentration for children and I’m conservative even with the amount of concentration
anyone inhales. When it comes to essential oils little goes a long way. Jendi: But you are a homeopath. Do you work
with essential oils now with clients or do you use them only for your family?
Joette: I don’t…not professionally. I have no degrees in the use of essential oils,
nor am I interested in acquiring one, since I find homeopathy to act so fully and efficaciously
that I have no interest nor need to go further. But I do encourage folks to take up whatever
it takes to stay away from drugs. But as you said, I’m a homeopath and Homeopathy has
no connection to essential oils.  Despite the misnomer that homeopathy means “home
remedies”…you know, the word “home” in the prefix, throws everyone off. It’s
also not a general term for ‘natural remedies’. It does not mean that at all. I’m particularly attracted to homeopathy
because I’ve seen it resolve osteomyelitis, abort strokes, angina, panic attacks, mend
broken bones in half the time, abort a flu in its tracks, turn a baby in the womb (as
Dr. Mercy Jackson taught us all so many years ago), remove food intolerances, eliminate
allergies, restore sleep, abort colic, arthritis….shall I go on? I can. Homeopathy is a complete form of medicine
with a compendium of scientific data to back its claims.   Jendi: Are there essential oils that have
been made into homeopathic remedies? Joette: yes. Of course the
delivery is different in that homeopathy delivers
on a very subtle and minute level. Lets look at camphor, a commonly used essential oil
that is used as an antiseptic, disinfectant, and insecticide, in the world of oils. In
homeopathy, once it is highly diluted using a mathematical process and succussed, called
potentization, it becomes a wonderful medicine that antidotes the ill effects of previously
used drugs. So we often open a case with Camphor 200 so that it can work on the ill effects
of previous drugs. The power of that alone is worthy of our attention given the amount
of our population propped up by drugs. For example, I specifically used this remedy
after my father had surgery years ago to antidote the potential side effects of the drugs and
procedures he was subjected to. Of course I used other homeopathic medicines to aid
in the quickened healing of the wound as well as helping him readily come out of the anesthetic.
This is the stuff my blog is made of. Tips and tricks that I learned by traveling the
world for homeopathy methods and having raised my family on . homeopathy is a very complex
medical paradigm and I take pride in being able to distill it so that anyone can get
the hang of it. Jendi: So what is the main difference between
homeopathy and essential oils? Joette: There are many different ways to approach
this question: But I’m going to take a user-friendly approach. So you know a little bit of my background
with essential oils, but I wanted to know how people who follow my blog are using it
today as well.  My team canvased many of my students who use both homeopathy and essential
oils. They also reached out to several essential oils communities and interviewed a few pros.
 From our sample of research, generally speaking, it appears that the vast majority of essential
oil users use the oils to PREVENT disease.  The benefits in this area-they report- are
far reaching.  You know, the blends that are called immunity
boosters. So that is one of the main differences…the
expectations are different so the effects the usage. Homeopathy consistently goes beyond
prevention of disease, and it has been recorded to uproot infections and illness once it has
been contracted. You see, homeopathic medicines are intended to stimulate the body’s ability
to correct itself, so its often illness or condition specific. This means that we use
these medicines for actual illness, not usually for prevention. There are exceptions, but
in general that’s how it’s done. Such as mending broken bones, eliminating allergies
(not just addressing them as they occur, but rooting them out.) So in homeopathy, if someone is prone to colds
and communicable illnesses, that is reason enough to employ a homeopathic medicine. That
is a pathology in itself. Of course, we’re supposed to get colds and children are supposed
to get childhood illnesses such as chicken pox, but if the person is sick every month
with one thing or another, its time to get to the bottom of things. Its time for a correction. Jendi: So if someone was prone to colds or
sore throats, an essential oil might be used too, right? Joette: when we use essential oils, most folks
use them for each and every sore throat, but a homeopathic medicine would be used over
a period of time to root out the problem and often instead of having to fix it each time.
In other words, its intention is to not have to use anything after awhile. That means what’s
been done is that the person is essentially fixed. This also means that meanwhile, while the
person is suffering from a cold, you can employ both methods. EO’s and homeopathy
are compatible. If you’re going to do what I did, if you’re going to take this on yourself
and not depend on a prescription drugs, you want to be fully armed. Jendi: “So, if I understand what you are saying
correctly, homeopathy can work alongside essential oils, like there is a synergy?” Joette: yes, they can work together, but I
believe that each stands on its own. And they can be can used side by side, but
there are some rules for engagement. Jendi; Can you expound on that? I have felt
as though I coulnt’ use both simultaneously. Joette: This is how it works -You will antidote–or
neutralize, or render the homeopathic useless with particularly strong odors. Mint based
oils such as peppermint and menthol,–if used in its full strength–camphor, menthol, tea
tree oil, eucalyptus. So this is how you incorporate the 2:
-Consider separating the oils from the remedy: so take the remedy and wait 15 minutes and
then use the oils and don’t use them these particular ones in full strength. I like to
use the combination essential oils in vaporizer even those that may contain these particular
oils. You may remember that my ‘scoundrels in the mist’ contains some eucalyptus.
-So if you avoid these, you can use homeopathy and good essential oils concomitantly. Jendi: Are there any protocols you can teach
us today? Joette: Yes. I love giving people take-aways.
Here’s something that everyone should know how to use. That is Arnica montana 30 or 200.
It should be used at the onset or at least as close to it as possible for a soft tissue
injury or head injury. If it’s serious enough , of course you head to the ER but on the
way, administering Arnica montana 200 every few minutes has allowed the action of the medicine to begin lickety- split. That
is it has a reputation for reducing shock, softens hematomas, accompanying anxiety and
if there’s an open wound, it protects it from infection. My children who have done
a great deal of skiing and tending animals in their lives grew up knowing that they were
safer as long as they kept Arnica montana 200 or 1M in their ski jackets. They knew
how often to use it and when to stop administering. Jendi: So what might you use alongside of
Arnica montana if you choose to use an essential oil? Joette: You could certainly use frankincense
for a head injury or cypress fir to support in a broken bone, but I have seen homeopathic
Symphytum 200 mixed with Calc phos 6x make quick work of bone healing in my own family
and Arnica montana is a favorite of professional ski teams in Switzerland and other areas of
the world. Also, plastic surgeons (and even in the US.) throughout the world count on
Arnica montana for hematomas and ecchymosis after surgery. Jendi: so if you know that essential oils have therapeutic
value, why don’t you use them in your day to day work?
Joette: The reason is that in my experience, I find homeopathy to be so sweeping in its
ability, so easy to learn, at least the practical way I use and teach it, so inexpensive and
wholesome, that I simply focused and dedicated the last 29 years of my life to it.. It’s
that simple. So I have mastered, as much as someone can master in 29 years of study, family
use and in practice, but dropped essential oils in lieu of it because homeopathy rarely
fails me. This is not to say that I don’t use my “Scoundrels” as a preventive measure.
For example, when I used to see clients in my office and someone came in who had an infectious
disease such as a cold or flu, I’d spray the office with my mixture. I’d also use
essential oils for when somone in my family has had a trauma to aid in any way I can.
But its not my foundational go-to. My firmament is homeopathy. Jendi: I guess this means you use more than
just homeopathy then. Joette: I find that there is a path upon which
most of us in North America travel before we get to homeopathy and when we finally get
to homeopathy, (what I consider to be the ultimate medical method)), we pass through
many towns. Some of them are worthy of holding on to and using in tandem with homeopathy,
others will likely fall to the wayside as superior methods become more available. It’s
a matter of an evolutionary process. Of moving down the chain of what works more thoroughly,
more consistently, is most cost effective and is more learnable. The problem with homeopathy
is that while it fulfills all of the criteria I mention here, it has not until now been
an easy method to use. That is, it has been historically difficult to determine the correct
remedy, to match the condition. Jendi: And essential oils and botanicals and
vitamins, for example, are easier to choose from? Joette: Yes, with essential oils, if you’ve
got a cold, you would likely choose from 2 or 3 oils, perhaps blend them together and
start sniffing., but with homeopathy, you have to do a little more reading, in some
circumstantces, a lot more and then choose the most fitting remedy. But that is based
on Classical homeopathy. That is, you need to observe nuances of the sufferer to determine
if this remedy or that would fit best. In doing so, it can become frustrating for those
who are new or uninitiated to the very sweeping and complex world of homeopathy.
Jendi: So you have an easier way, right? Joette: yes. Well actually, every homeopath
who is seasoned has eventually come up with short cuts, some gleaned simply by being observant
in practice, others by reading the books of the great homeopathic masters of the last
2 centuries, attending post grad courses, sharing with and learning from colleagues….
But you can accumulate only so much over the limited amount of time in practice. You know,
human conditions and suffering is vast and we homeopaths have a finite amount of time
to observe and collect data that are simple. Let me step back and make it clear that homeopathy
works and it works thoroughly and often to complete resolution. But It’s not a 100%
guarantee, its capabilities are often astounding…even to me after seeing results time and again.
The glitch is that the system of choosing the remedy in its complexity has stymied many
a neophyte. But I’m here to say that this has changed.
Enter the Banerji protocols. The reason I give continuing accolades to these doctors
in Calcutta, with whom I worked for 2 consecutive years is because they have gotten what would
take other homeopaths a life time to accumulate and distill. They have gathered their heirs’
accumulated data and offered them to me, to the world. Additionally, their model is extraordinary
in that they don’t’ see the average number of patients as other doctors throughout the
world. NO. they each take 100 cases per day and there are 10 of them and they are open
6 days per week which means they oversee 6,000 medical cases per WEEK! Don’t care what kind of medicine you practice,
no doctor that I know takes that many cases. There’s no data anywhere that can boast
these numbers. What’s so great about numbers? It offers irrefutable evidence and this distills
down to specific remedies for specific conditions. Its clean, its efficacious and its indisputable. Jendi: so can you give me the overall picture
more encapsulated? Joette: the upshot of the message is this.
Do what you need to do to get your family and self as far away from drugs
as possible. Employ botanicals, essential
oils, whatever means to get a handle on keeping things simple. get the protocols I teach on
my blog, tuck them in your hip pocket and start using homeopathy as often as you need.
Jendi: thanks Joette, I’ll keep my essential oils and continue on my journey of using homeopathy
as well. Joette: “Can’t resist alliteration…..It’s
my method of the making mighty moms!
