Zinc

An essential trace mineral, probably most widely known for the integral role it plays in your immune system and the prevention and treatment of the common cold. Aside from iron, zinc is the most common mineral found in your body, necessary for the function of every one of your cells. Zinc is used in the production of white blood cells, helping your body to fight infection, and plays a key role in regulating the way your heart muscle uses calcium to trigger the electrical stimulus responsible for your heartbeat.1 It’s also one of the building blocks for approximately 3,000 proteins and 200 enzymes in your body. Recent research has now identified the role zinc plays in protecting your DNA.2 However, while essential, your body does not store zinc, so it is important you get enough from your dietary intake every day. Moreover, regularly getting too much can be just as hazardous as getting too little.

Carbon Dioxide

The essential molecule for all plant life that without, the entire web of life on our planet would instantly collapse. Misinformed environmentalists have been exhaustively convinced that carbon dioxide is somehow a “death” molecule for the planet, when exactly the opposite is true: The planet would die without it… and humans would have no vegetables, no fruits, and no herbs if it wasn’t for carbon dioxide as revealed in an in-depth report on the benefits of CO2. In his paper, independent scholar and author Indur Goklany explains how CO2 benefits both the biosphere and humanity by stimulating the growth and flourishing of plant life. Further, increased concentrations of CO2 directly contribute to more rainfall, which means more food for both animals and people. Contrary to what the global warming fanatics often claim, rising CO2 levels have been helping our planet, not hurting it. So, ironically, reducing the carbon footprint is not green at all!

Scientists have lots of evidence demonstrating that increased carbon dioxide levels leads to healthier plants. A team of scientists in Nevada conducted a five-year experiment in which they grew one group of ponderosa pine trees at the current carbon dioxide atmospheric level of about 360 parts per million (ppm) and another group of pines at 700 ppm. The doubled carbon dioxide level increased tree height by 43 percent and diameter by 24 percent. Similarly, a team of scientists from Virginia Tech University reported that growing loblolly pine trees in a greenhouse with a carbon dioxide concentration of 700 ppm increased average tree height 9 percent, diameter by 7 percent, needle biomass by 16 percent and root biomass by 33 percent.2

Increased atmospheric carbon dioxide doesn’t just make a plant bigger. Carbon dioxide also makes plants more resistant to extreme weather conditions. In a study discussed in the journal Plant Ecology, a team of scientists subjected the Mojave Desert evergreen shrub to three different concentrations of carbon dioxide – the current level of 360 ppm and at 550 ppm and 700 ppm. The plants, which were being grown in simulated drought conditions, responded more favorably in the carbon dioxide-rich environments. Photosynthetic activity doubled in the 550 ppm environment and tripled at 700 ppm. Increased photosynthetic activity enables plants to withstand drought better.3

Likewise, a team of biologists grew seedlings of three yucca plants in cooler greenhouse environments at the 360 ppm and 700 ppm concentrations. The yucca plants exposed to the enhanced carbon dioxide concentration showed a greater resistance to the colder temperatures. Dr. Robert Balling, a climatologist at Arizona State University, notes that by making plants healthier and more resistant to extreme weather conditions, higher levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide expands the habitat of many plants, improves rangeland in semi-arid areas and enhances agricultural productivity in arid areas.4

Another benefit of enhanced atmospheric carbon dioxide is that it helps the tropical rainforests. Scientists from Venezuela and the United Kingdom grew several species of tropical trees and other plants in greenhouse conditions at carbon dioxide concentrations double the current level. The plants responded favorably, showing an increase in photosynthetic activity. The scientists concluded that, “In a future atmosphere with a higher carbon dioxide concentration, these species should be able to show a higher productivity than today.”5

Another team of British and New Zealand researchers grew tropical trees for 119 days at elevated levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. They found that the enriched carbon dioxide environment stimulated the trees’ root growth by 23 percent. Expanded root systems help tropical trees by increasing their ability to absorb water and nutrients.6

Bigger trees, increased resistance to bad weather, improved agricultural productivity and a boon to rainforests are just some of the many benefits that carbon dioxide bestows on the environment. With little evidence that carbon dioxide triggers dangerous global warming but lots of evidence showing how carbon dioxide helps the environment, environmentalists should be extolling the virtues of this benign greenhouse gas.

Rising CO2 levels have actually boosted the productivity of the biosphere by some 14 percent since 1982. Crops are growing more easily as a result of this, and the overall amount of farmable land throughout the world has similarly increased by as much as 17 percent. “Satellite evidence confirms that increasing carbon dioxide concentrations have also resulted in greater productivity of wild terrestrial ecosystems in all vegetation types,” Goklany’s eye-opening report explains.

“Increasing carbon dioxide concentrations have also increased the productivity of many marine ecosystems.”

As agricultural yields have progressively increased as a result of more CO2, food prices have progressively decreased. That’s right: global warming, so-called, has been a powerful weapon against hunger, making food more plentiful and readily available at cheaper costs. Beyond this, global warming has improved the viability of forests and other natural habitats, not only by contributing to their re-growth, but also saving many of them from being destroyed to make way for more agriculture and farming.

“Had it not been for the increase in yields of 9–15%, global cropland would have had to be increased by a similar amount to produce the same amount of food, all else being equal,” the report explains. “That figure means that an area equivalent to the combined area of Myanmar, Thailand and Malaysia has been saved from the plough.”

Many animal species have also been saved from extinction as a result of increased levels of CO2. According to the paper, were it not for carbon dioxide “fertilization” of the planet, there would have been a “significant increase” in the number of animal species at risk of disappearing.

Rising CO2 levels have also provided more water, specifically to areas that need it most. The reason for this is that CO2 increases water evaporation and subsequent rainfall, acting as nature’s watering bucket to ensure not only that crops stay hydrated, but also that droughts are avoided.

“Regardless of whether, how and under what conditions carbon uptake and water-use efficiency are related, global ecosystem productivity increased by 14% from 1982–2011 (Figure 1), 8 while vegetation cover increased by 11% in arid areas from 1982– 2010,” the report explains.

“And with regard to agricultural productivity, global crop yields have increased,” it adds. “For instance, from 1961 to 2013, cereal yields per hectare increased by 85% in the least developed countries and 185% worldwide. These yield increases show no sustained sign of decelerating.”

For decades, enviro-terrorists have been blaming the world’s ailments on carbon dioxide (CO2). Yet, this humble molecule is actually essential for plant life to exist. While proponents of climate change are loath to admit it, CO2 is a key part of photosynthesis – the way plants make energy. CO2 is essentially food for plants. Without CO2, water and sunshine, plants can’t grow. And when plants can’t grow, people starve. It is highly concerning that alleged environmentalists are promoting drastic reductions in CO2 as the only solution to climate change (a heavily fabricated theory to begin with). Without photosynthesis, there can be no life on Earth.

Recent research confirms that carbon dioxide has contributed to global “regreening.” Estimates suggest that increasing CO2 levels has led to a substantial increase in farmable land worldwide. Experts say farmable land has risen by 17 percent, and that overall biosphere productivity has gone up 14 percent since 1982.

Research also demonstrates that global crop yields have increased by 185 percent worldwide – and scientists say these increases show no signs of slowing. Indeed, it would seem that so-called “global warming” has actually been good for the planet. And as Mike Adams, founder of Natural News and Brighteon.com, contends, warring against CO2 is a war against life itself.

As Adams explains, burning fossil fuels actually provides plants with more fuel:

Burning fossil fuels, by the way, means combusting hydrocarbons to release energy. One of the byproducts of burning fossil fuels is the release of CO2 into the atmosphere, providing fresh CO2 that plants are starving to harvest from the air. CO2 levels in the atmosphere right now are at near-emergency low levels of barely above 400 ppm. Forests, food crops and indigenous plants across the globe would flourish at double or triple the current level of CO2. If we had, for example, 1200 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere,the Earth would be greener and more lush.

The leftist call to eliminate carbon from the atmosphere is a suicide mission. In 2017, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Chief Scott Pruitt even stated that he did not believe CO2 was a primary contributor to climate change. There is no shortage of reasons to be skeptical of climate change in and of itself, given the numerous instances of fraud and faulty data. Ultimately, the idea that CO2 is a vehicle of climate change is a hypothesis – and a poorly thought out one, at that.

It is no wonder that skeptics now believe that climate change fear-mongering and the GND have nothing to do with environmental concerns – and everything to do with ushering in a New World Order. The GND even spells it out for us, with AOC and her minions promising “a massive transformation of our society with clear goals and a timeline.”

The GND is further described as a “10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and create economic prosperity for all.”

If that’s not a dog whistle for a new socialist regime, I don’t know what is. The Green New Deal would kill the U.S. economy, American freedom and the environment in one fell swoop – and this is what the Left wants people to think progress looks like.

Climate change fanatics repeatedly cite “science” as their domain from which they might demand absolute compliance and obedience to their delusions. “Science,” they say, is why they never have to provide any real evidence that would support the bizarre notion that carbon dioxide is somehow bad for the planet. No debate is allowed, either, because they claim a monopoly over “science” by asserting all debates are “already settled.” Therefore, no further discussion may be tolerated. (This is the twisted, Left-wing version of science totalitarianism, courtesy of sociopathic, power hungry science overlords like Neil DeGrasse Tyson.)

In reality, every real scientist knows that carbon dioxide is essential for all plant life across the planet. As the following science diagram shows, carbon dioxide is necessary for plants to breathe. Without it, they would suffocate in minutes:

Plants use carbon dioxide to create CBD, THC, vitamin C and anti-cancer nutrients like curcumin

Not only is carbon dioxide necessary for all plant respiration via photosynthesis, it’s also the key ingredient used by plants to synthesize nearly every medicinal molecule that’s loved by herbalists, natural medicine practitioners and even medical cannabis advocates.

All cannabinoids are made out of carbon dioxide, for example. This includes CBD and THC. For those of you who aren’t chemists, every line segment in the molecular maps shown below represents a carbon bond. Double lines are double carbon bonds. Carbon atoms have four available bonds in their outer shell, and those bonds may be occupied by Oxygen (often a double bond), Hydrogen (a single bond) or other Carbon atoms. (Related: Learn more about chemistry by reading Chemistry.news.)

There are 21 carbons, for example, in a molecule of cannabidiol. Guess where the hemp plant gets this carbon? From carbon dioxide, of course, which all the hemp-smoking Leftists are convinced is an evil molecule.

Despite the fact that cannabidiol comes from carbon dioxide, climate change cultists are simultaneously “pro hemp” and “anti carbon dioxide.” How can this be the case? Because they are science idiots who have been brainwashed by the liberal establishment to despise the very molecule that creates nearly all the natural medicines in the world.

Anyone who hates carbon dioxide must, by definition, hate CBD, THC and all plants. Yet, astonishingly, climate change cultists think they support “green lifestyles” by opposing the very molecule necessary for all plant life on our planet. That’s how gullible and brainwashed they are: They’ll believe anything if it is claimed to “save the planet” (even if it murders the planet).

Curcumin from turmeric root is also made out of carbon dioxide

Curcumin, a powerful anti-cancer nutrient found in turmeric, is also made from carbon dioxide. As you can see in this molecular diagram, it’s made from 21 carbons. Where do you suppose the turmeric plant acquires the carbon it needs to manufacture this molecule? From atmospheric carbon dioxide, of course, the very molecule that delusional climate change fanatics have said they want to eliminate from the planet because it’s a “pollutant.”

In fact, nearly every medicinal molecule in all of botany is made out of carbon dioxide. CO2 is the key source of carbon used by plants to synthesize everything from chlorophyll to resveratrol. Every healing nutrient in basil, oregano, cinnamon, cilantro, garlic and pomegranate fruit is made out of carbon dioxide. The entire world of natural medicine owes its very basis to CO2.

This is why every herbalist, naturopath and medicinal arts practitioner should be in favor of carbon dioxide. Without this molecule, they would all be out of business (and dead, technically, since all life on the planet would collapse).

The real SCIENCE of carbon dioxide proves this molecule is the answer to a greener planet

Every person who argues that carbon dioxide is bad for the planet is a science idiot. Neil Tyson is a science idiot. Bill Nye is a science idiot. Elon Musk is a science idiot. And Al Gore is a science idiot, too. They all have one laughably stupid thing in common: They think carbon dioxide is bad for plant life on Earth. This makes them total morons who couldn’t even pass a high school science class.

Seriously, they would all earn “F” grades in a high school science class because they can’t even get the answer correct on which molecules are involved in photosynthesis.

I remember studying photosynthesis in the tenth grade. I was 16 years old, and my science teacher was an awesome, liberty-loving gun owner who later taught us genetics and microbiology. Photosynthesis was simple stuff then, and it’s simple now. Yet the global warming lunatics are trying to memory hole all science education that covers carbon dioxide or genetics because they have to push their delusional narratives of global warming and transgenderism. Somehow, they ridiculously claim to have a monopoly over “science,” even when their stupid narratives are so full of junk science quackery that real scientists are laughing their heads off everywhere.

The bottom line in all this? Any person who insists that carbon dioxide is “bad” for the planet is a scientifically illiterate moron. These are often the very same people drinking green juice smoothies who don’t even know that plants are green precisely because chlorophyll harnesses carbon dioxide and sunlight to create plant energy. If any molecule is a “green” molecule on our planet, it’s CO2!

Essential Oils

Used for thousands of years in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes because of their antidepressant, stimulating, detoxifying, antibacterial, antiviral and calming properties, they are recently gaining popularity as a natural, safe and cost-effective therapy for a number of health concerns. They require a large quantity of plant material and need to be diluted before use because they are concentrated. Essential oils can be used in different ways, including aromatherapy (smell is the fastest way to reach your brain.), skin massage (dilute first), adding them to bathwater, using them in a compress or burning them in a diffuser. The science, psychoneuroimmunology, shows that when you experience something pleasurable like a soothing massage or the scent of a fragrant flower, your mood lifts and your well-being is positively affected. This can happen with just a single drop. Buy USDA certified organic oils only and beware of claims of “professional grade” or “therapeutic grade” as there is no official grading system for essential oils.

Typically created through the process of distillation — which separates the oil and water-based compounds of a plant by steaming — they are highly concentrated oils that have a strong aroma. In fact, sometimes they are called volatile aromatic oils because of their high concentration of the aromatic compounds. (1) They also are simply called aromatherapy oils. By concentrating the oils of these plants, you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil.

Of all your five senses, your sense of smell is the fastest way to reach your brain. With a direct path, the nerve fibers of your olfactory system – or your body’s system for smelling – run straight to the limbic area of your brain. It’s here in your limbic system where you find direct links to your memories and stored learned responses, emotions, and feelings. However, your olfactory system involves more than just your brain…

Certain essential oils, such as peppermint, can be absorbed through your nasal cavity and through your bronchial tract and lungs. These “fast track” delivery systems help explain how your body – and your brain – can respond so quickly to a calming or invigorating essential oil scent!

“Can Inhaling Essential Oils Harm My Pets?”

Contrary to common belief, newer research suggests that high-quality, pure essential oils may actually support the emotional and physical well-being of pets, including cats, when inhaled.

A word of caution… Not all essential oils are created equal. Avoid inexpensive essential oils of unknown quality or content. Many inexpensive oils can contain synthetic fragrance oils or perfumes that may be unhealthy for your pet to inhale. To know which oils are suitable for your pets, it’s recommended to consult a veterinarian with essential oil experience. Essential oils should always be diluted, blended, and used with the supervision of a veterinarian or aromatherapist. Rosemary should not be used around pets with epilepsy and Tea Tree should not be used with cats.

Burning essential oils over a candle or light bulb is the traditional way to disperse the scent of essential oils into the air, however we now know that exposing an essential oil to heat can damage some of its fragile, beneficial properties. With the new generation of diffusers such as the ultrasonic or waterless diffuser, your essential oil is dispersed into the air without heating the delicate compound. With an ultrasonic or “cool mist” diffuser, you simply add your desired number of drops of one or more essential oils to a small reservoir of cold water. Within seconds, you have a cool, scented mist. However, check your options before buying a cool mist diffuser… Some models have lights that can’t be turned off at night, a real disadvantage.

Another option is the waterless or dry aroma diffuser. This type doesn’t require water to disperse the essential oil – rather the diffuser attaches directly to the bottle of essential oil. Much like the ultrasonic diffuser, it disperses fine droplets of the essential oils into your air. Both the ultrasonic and dry aroma diffusers provide continuous distribution of the essential oil in a way that is easy for your body to absorb, so you experience its ultimate benefits. You can also enjoy the unique scent of each essential oil.

No matter which way you choose to enjoy your essential oils, there’s something important you need to know about them…

It’s Not Hocus-Pocus… There’s Real Science Behind Aromatherapy

Notice how your mood shifts when you smell a fragrant flower? While aromatherapy isn’t new, the science surrounding it called psychoneuroimmunology is. Simply, it’s the study of how your experiences – both good and bad – affect your inner self and your immune health. Here’s what scientists have discovered: When you experience something pleasurable like a soothing massage or the scent of a fragrant flower, your mood lifts and your well-being is positively affected. You can try it for yourself… Watch how your mood – and even your energy – shifts when you cut into a juicy orange or sniff a sprig of mint from your garden.

The most exciting thing scientific researchers have gleaned from this, in my opinion, is how we can use aromatherapy in our daily routines to enhance our vitality and well-being, and even our outlook on life.

And now I’m going to show you exactly how to do it…

Aromatherapy allows you to tap into certain specific compounds extracted from the leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, bark, and roots of plants. These wonderful aromatic compounds are called essential oils. When carefully produced, high-quality essential oils are pure and very concentrated. A single drop can lift your spirits and improve your mood!

There are multiple ways you can experience the potential of these exceptional compounds. Many people like to massage essential oils mixed with a “carrier” oil directly onto their skin. Others like to add them to their bath water, shampoo, or lotion. Still, others can be used internally, if you’re using a high-quality organic, food-grade oil like many of our Organic Essential Oils are. But there’s even more…

Benefits of Essential Oils

1. Balance Hormones

There are essential oils for hormones that may help to balance your estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, thyroid and testosterone levels.

Some oils, such as clary sage, geranium and thyme, help to balance out estrogen and progesterone levels in your body, which can improve conditions like infertility and PCOS, as well as PMS and menopause symptoms. A 2017 published in Neuro Endocrinology Letters indicates that geranium and rose have the ability to influence the salivary concentration of estrogen in women. This may be helpful for women who are experiencing menopausal symptoms that are caused by declining levels of estrogen secretion. (2)

Certain oils are also able to lower cortisol levels, which can help to improve your mood and reduce symptoms of depression, and increase testosterone levels, which can improve a man’s libido. (3)

2. Boost Immunity & Fight Infections

Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties that help to boost your immune system and fight infections. The chemical substances found in the oils, such as terpenes, esters, phenolics, ethers and ketones, have the potential to fight foreign pathogens that can threaten your health. Some of the best essential oils for your immunity include oregano, myrrh, ginger, lemon, eucalyptus, frankincense, peppermint (or Mentha piperita) and cinnamon.

Studies have shown that essential oils effectively destroy several fungal, viral and bacterial pathogens, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Helicobacter pylori and Candida albicans infections. Because antibiotic resistance is becoming such a major threat in modern health care, using these oils as a form of independent or combination therapy can help to fight bacterial infections in a safer and more natural way.  (4, 5)

Oregano oil, for instance, has powerful immune-boosting properties and has displayed both antiviral and antibacterial properties in lab research. Oregano oil contains carvacrol and thymol, two compounds that have antimicrobial effects and can inhibit the synthesis and growth of several types of bacteria. (6)

Frankincense oil’s immune-enhancing abilities may include helping to destroy dangerous bacteria, viruses and even cancers. For example, a lab study found that frankincense oil shows strong immunostimulant activity. (7a, 7b)

Frankincense also demonstrates anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor effects when tested in lab studies and on animals — specifically, helping to fight the cells of specific types of cancer. (7c) A 2012 study showed that a chemical compound found in frankincense called AKBA may kill cancer cells that have become resistant to chemotherapy. (7d)

3. Support Digestion

Another researched essential oils benefit is their role in aiding and improving digestion. Some oils help to relieve upset stomach, indigestion, diarrhea, stomach spasms and even conditions of the gastrointestinal system, such as IBS. Oils can also aid your digestion by helping to stimulate digestive enzymes that make it easier to break down and absorb the nutrients, fats and protein that you need.

Ginger essential oil, for example, is known to promote your digestive health by easing indigestion, constipation and ulcers. A study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology found that ginger oil stimulated gastric emptying in people with indigestion. Ginger oil is also used to relieve gas, reduce nausea and ease abdominal pain. (7)

Another useful essential oil for digestion is peppermint. Research shows that peppermint oil works to provide rapid relief of IBS symptoms. In a 4-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, 72 patients with IBS received either peppermint oil or placebo. The peppermint group experienced a 40 percent reduction in total IBS symptoms after 4 weeks, which was superior to the 24 percent decrease of symptoms reported by the patients in the placebo group. After just 24 hours of using peppermint oil, the treatment group experienced a decrease in symptoms of 19.6 percent. (8)

Some other essential oils that may be helpful for digestion include fennel, lemongrass, marjoram, black pepper and juniper berry.

4. Boost Energy Levels

Did you know that essential oils can help to boost your energy levels and even improve your athletic performance? Some oils have stimulating effects and can actually increase oxygen to your brain, which will leave you feeling refreshed, focused and energized.

A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that peppermint oil increased brain oxygen concentration, improved exercise performance and reduced exhaustion in healthy male athletes who consumed peppermint oil with water for 10 days. (9)

Some other great essential oils for energy include grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, eucalyptus and rosemary.

5. Improve Brain Function

With neuroprotective effects and cognitive performance boosting abilities, essential oil benefits have helped many people who are suffering from neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. In a scientific review published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience, researchers found that because essential oils possess powerful antioxidants that work to inhibit free radical scavenging, they help to naturally improve brain function and reduce inflammation.

Essential oils have also shown to improve learning, memory and ability to focus. Both stimulating and sedative oils can be useful, as oils like peppermint can improve sustained attention over a longer period of time, while oils like lavender can be useful for people going through tough exercises or situations. Furthermore, they can be useful in relieving agitation in individuals with dementia. This is due to their calming and sedative effects. (10)

6. Reduce Emotional Stress & Anxiety

Perhaps one of the most well-known essential oils benefits is their ability to reduce stress and anxiety. Some have sedative properties and induce a calm, peaceful, uplifting and relaxed feeling. The best essential oils for anxiety and stress include lavender, Roman chamomile, bergamot, ylang ylang, orange, rose, frankincense and vetiver.

A 2016 randomized controlled clinical trial found that inhaling rose water for four weeks significantly decreased the state and traits of anxiety in patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment. (11)

A pilot study published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice found that the use of aromatherapy as a complementary therapy helped to reduce anxiety and depression scales in postpartum women. Women between zero and 18 months postpartum were divided into either a treatment group that inhaled a blend of rose and lavender oils or a control group that didn’t receive any type of aromatherapy. After four weeks, the women using aromatherapy had significant improvements in anxiety and depression symptoms compared to those in the control group. (12)

And a 2014 study involving 82 participants evaluated the effectiveness of aromatherapy for elderly people with chronic pain and symptoms of anxiety and depression. Researchers found that after four weeks of treatment with essential oils, there was a significant reduction in negative emotions, including feelings of anxiety, stress and depression, among the intervention group. (13)

These are just some of the studies that have displayed the anti-anxiety and stress-relieving capabilities.

7. Alleviate Aches and Pains

According to a systemic review and meta-analysis published in Pain Research and Treatment, there is a significant positive effect of aromatherapy, compared to placebos or control treatments, in reducing pain. Researchers evaluated 12 studies on this topic and found that essential oils were especially helpful in treating postoperative pain, obstetrical pain and gynecological pain. (14)

There are many oils that may be applied topically or used aromatically to reduce body aches and pains. One study that displays this essential oil benefit evaluated the efficacy of these oils on neck pain. For the study, the experimental group received a cream that was composed of marjoram, black pepper, lavender and peppermint oils, and the control group used an unscented cream. The creams were applied for 4 weeks, directly to the painful area after bathing. Researchers found that the experimental group had improved pain tolerance in the neck and showed significant improvement in the 10 motion areas that were measured. (15)

The best essential oils for alleviating aches and pains include lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, chamomile, rosemary, majoram, thyme, frankincense, turmeric, ginger and myrrh.

8. Boost Skin and Hair Health

Using essential oils on your skin and in hair and beauty products is a natural and effective way to keep up your personal care regimes without having to use products that are made with chemicals and hydrogenated oils. Essential oils may calm irritated skin, reduce signs of aging, like age spots, improve acne, protect your skin from sun damage and thicken your hair.

According to a review published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, “at least 90 essential oils can be identified as being recommended for dermatological use, with at least 1,500 combinations.” What gives these oils their skin benefits is their ability to fight against pathogens that are responsible for dermatological infections. Oils can also help to improve inflammatory skin conditions, like dermatitis, eczema and lupus, improve the general appearance of your skin and even aid wound healing. (16)

There are also quite a few studies that have found essential oils to be helpful for hair growth. One such study, conducted in 2015, evaluated the efficacy of rosemary oil on patients with androgenetic alopecia, or male or female pattern baldness. Patients were randomly assigned to rosemary oil or minoxidil (a medication commonly used for hair loss) for a six-month treatment period. Researchers found that both groups experienced a significant increase in hair count at the six-month endpoint. They also indicated that scalp itching was more frequent in the minoxidil group. (17)

The best essential oils for skin and hair include lavender, Roman chamomile, frankincense, tea tree, geranium, myrrh, helichrysum, rosemary and clary sage.

9. Reduce Toxicity

Essential oils may help to reduce toxicity by promoting the detoxification of your home and body. These days, we are all inhaling and ingesting a number of chemicals and environmental toxins that can be dangerous for our health. Some work as mild diuretics, thereby increasing urine production and improving detoxification. And some oils aid digestion and promote the detoxification of toxins that buildup in the body. (18)

Oils that help to promote internal detoxification include lemon, grapefruit, parsley, funnel, lemongrass, peppermint and ginger.

Using detoxifying oils can help your body to flush out these toxins and it can clean the air of your home, too. In fact, unlike most home cleaning products that are loaded with chemicals, essential oils can naturally clean your home by destroying harmful pathogens and pollutants.

The best oils for reducing toxicity in your home or place of work include grapefruit, orange, lemon, lemongrass, eucalyptus, cinnamon, peppermint and tea tree.

10. Relieve Headaches and Migraines

Essential oils may work as natural headache and migraine relievers because they effectively treat the trigger, addressing the root of the problem instead of masking it, like painkillers do. Essential oils for headaches provide pain relief, improve circulation and reduce stress, which can be a major cause of both headaches and migraines.

A placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted in 2012 evaluated the efficacy of inhaling lavender oil for the treatment of migraine headaches. Forty-seven patients with migraines were divided into two groups — one that inhaled lavender oil for 15 minutes and one that used a color and odorless liquid.

After asking the patients to record their headache severity and associated symptoms every 30 minutes for a total of 2 hours, researchers found that the difference between the controls and treated patients was statistically significant. From 129 headache attacks in the treatment group, 92 responded entirely or partially to lavender. In the control group, 32 out of 68 headache attacks responded to the placebo. (19)

Aside from lavender, some other oils that can help to relieve headache pain include peppermint, which has a cooling effect and stimulates blood flow, eucalyptus, which relieves sinus pressure by opening the nasal airways, and rosemary, which reduces inflammation, promotes circulation and has a calming effect.

11. Promote Restful Sleep

Some essential oils have sedative properties, which can be helpful for people who are having trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night. Lavender oil, in particular, is known to be an effective sleep aid because of its ability to leave you feeling relaxed and calm. Some other oils that can be used to promote restful sleep include Roman chamomile, ylang ylang, bergamot and vetiver.

A 2014 systematic review conducted at the University of Minnesota evaluated 15 quantitative studies, including 11 randomized controlled trials that examined the effects of essential oils on sleep. Researchers found that a majority of the study findings suggest a positive effect of oils on sleep deprivation and disturbances. Lavender oil was the most frequently studied oil and of all evaluated studies, no adverse events were reported. (20)

Another recent study, this one published in Nursing in Critical Care, investigated the effects of lavender oil on sleep quality among patients in the coronary intensive care unit (ICU). Sixty patients participated in the study and they were divided into the intervention group or the control group.

The intervention group inhaled lavender oil for 15 days and researchers found that they showed significantly significant differences in their sleep quality compared to the control group that received no form of therapy. Researchers pointed out that lavender oil is a non-invasive, inexpensive and easily applicable intervention for hospital patients who are having trouble sleeping and experiencing anxiety. (21)

Don’t Be Fooled by “Professional Grade” Fancy-Talk

Now here’s where things can get a bit tricky. When shopping for essential oils, you’re likely to see the words “professional grade” on certain products What exactly does that phrase mean? You may wonder… Does this mean they are a special grade or a higher quality reserved for professionals? Manufacturers may want you to believe that, but you need to know there is no official grading system for essential oils. Anyone can label their product “Therapeutic Grade” without meeting any special criteria.

Don’t take their word for it… It’s up to you to be the “grading system” for quality!

When evaluating essential oils, always look at these factors that indicate quality:

  • Where are the plants grown? Plants grown in their indigenous regions tend to be healthier. Watch out for “unknown country of origin!”
  • Is it the correct species of plant? Watch out for cheaper substitutions. Make sure you’re getting the correct species, especially with lavender. Avoid products that don’t label the botanical name of the plant!
  • When is it harvested? When a plant is harvested influences the potency of the valuable constituents in its leaves, stems, and flowers.
  • Is it a synthetic fragrance oil or perfume rather than an actual essential oil? There’s a big difference. For true benefits, you want a quality essential oil for its biologically active compounds, or the beneficial properties that make it work, not just for its scent!
  • How much does it cost? If it seems like too good of a deal, you’re probably better off avoiding it. High-quality essential oils are responsibly grown and safely extracted without using harmful chemicals. They naturally will cost more.
  • How is the essential oil extracted? Look for essential oils that are either cold-pressed or steam distilled rather than extracted with harsh solvents.
  • Has it been diluted or mixed with anything else? For purity, look for a 100% essential oil. That’s the only way you know it hasn’t been diluted or adulterated. This is another way price can be a tipoff.
  • Do they test their products for purity? Are the essential oils tested for their identity (or verification that the ingredients on the label are correct), purity, quality, and safety? Look for essential tests like Gas Chromatography (GC) and Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
  • Has it been manufactured in a cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility? Is the manufacturer processing the oils to Food Grade standards? This is especially important for oils used in the kitchen; you want to ensure the manufacturer is adhering to the same strict GMP guidelines that are required for manufacturing the foods you eat.

Now that you know what to look for, let’s cover a few points that may not be so evident…

Beware of Essential Oils That Carry Unwanted, Hidden Surprises

As I’ve just shown you, the quality of essential oils varies widely. You must do your due diligence. In addition to the factors that indicate quality, check to make sure your essential oils don’t contain these hidden surprises:

  • Synthetic ingredients – If you see the word “fragrance,” this almost always means, “hidden chemicals.” The fragrance industry uses over 3,100 chemical ingredients!
  • GMOs – Beware of genetically modified ingredients. Eucalyptus is one essential oil that is sometimes genetically engineered.
  • Chemicals – Harsh chemical solvents used in the extraction process can be potential neurotoxins and can cause skin irritation.
  • Pesticides and herbicides – If they are used during growth or processing, they will most likely remain in the oil after steam distillation.

Look for the USDA Certified Organic seal! You’ll get a higher standard of product when you go with an organic essential oil.

What are the best essential oils to start with?

Some people ask for a list of essential oils before they realize how many essential oils exist. The most common essential oils that I believe everyone should have stored in their personal medicine cabinet include the following:

  • Lavender: heals burns, cuts, rashes, stings, reduces anxiety and promotes restful sleep.
  • Peppermint: improves joint and muscle pain, relieves digestive issues, reduces fevers, clears sinuses, improves asthma and bronchitis, and relieves headaches.
  • Frankincense: reduces inflammation, heals bruising, reduces scars, boosts immunity and promotes emotional well-being.
  • Tea tree: has antibacterial and antifungal properties, can be used to prevent and reduce infections, and cleans the air of pathogens and allergens.

Rhodes, Cecil

British born statesman, industrialist, and South African financier who wanted to make Africa a British dominion from the Cape to Cairo“, with the financial support of Nathan Rothschild (1840-1915) and Alfred Beit, was able to control the diamond mines of South Africa with his Debeers Co. by buying out the French Diamond Co. and then merging with the Barnato Diamond Mining Co. He eventually controlled the production of diamonds throughout the world and was also prosperous in gold mining. He wrote the first of seven wills, in which he called for the establishment of: “…a secret society with but one object — the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilized world under British rule” His seventh and last will named Nathan Rothschild administrator of his estate, and established  the Rhodes Scholarships, an educational grant, at Oxford University (which was controlled by the Fabians). which provided a 2-year program for young men, and later, women, from the US, UK, and Germany, to carry on the Illuminati conspiracy.

As the founder of the De Beers Company, which still controls sixty percent of the rough diamond markets, he once controlled ninety percent of that trade. Ostensibly one of his age’s most powerful men, the country of Rhodesia (present day Zimbabwe) was named after him. …Under the cunning guise of extending the domination of the “Anglo-Saxon” race, he successfully furthered the interests of his royal masters of England and the various Atonist dynasties of Europe. Although he was actively involved in the Boer War, he was despised by the military commanders and troops who saw him as an opinionated, domineering, megalomaniacal busy body. The machinations of this demagogue and his cronies have been thoroughly exposed in the works of G. Edward Griffin, Dr. John Coleman, Anthony Sutton, Lyndon Larouche, and Dr. Caroll Quigley. – Michael Tsarion / The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2

Rhodes claimed that he wanted to create “the foundation of so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible,” but that wasn’t true. Cecil Rhodes and Alfred Milner (the British High Commissioner of South Africa) precipitated the Boer War because they wanted to expand the British Empire. The English army sustained 100,000 casualties in the war, and over twenty-eight thousand Afrikaner women and children were starved and/or died of typhoid fever in Milner’s prison camps. Rhodes and Milner wanted the carnage to continue, but the British Parliament intervened and stopped the brutal war.

How can you verify that information?

Professor Quigley’s book, “Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time“, has an excellent section on the Boer War. Thomas Pakenham’s book, “The Boer War“, is also an excellent source of information. Professor Quigley’s book, “The Anglo-American Establishment” contains the letter that Cecil Rhodes wrote to William Stead during the Boer War:

“That is the curse which will be fatal to our ideas — insubordination. Do not you think it is very disobedient of you? How can our Society be worked if each one sets himself up as the sole judge of what ought to be done? Just look at the position here. We three are in South Africa. . . . I myself, Milner, and Garrett, all of whom learned their politics from you. We are on the spot, and we are unanimous in declaring this war to be necessary. You have never been in South Africa, and yet . . . you fling yourself into a violent opposition to the war.” [31]

Cecil Rhodes died before the war ended, but the senseless carnage didn’t deter the members of Rhodes’ secret society because most of them were deeply involved in the occult. Alfred Milner (Lord Milner) inherited Cecil Rhodes’ wealth. He assumed leadership of the secret society, controlled the Rhodes Scholarship fund, and brought thousands of young men to Oxford University to learn the importance of world government.

The Rhodes fortune, through the Rhodes Scholarship Fund, has been used to promote the concept of globalism and one-world government. Up to 1953, out of 1,372 American Rhodes Scholars, 431 had positions in teaching and educational administration, 31 were college presidents, 113 had government positions, 70 held positions in the media, and 14 were executives in foundations.

“From Cape Town to Cairo”: Political cartoon featuring Rhodes reigning over Africa.

Cited among of the most committed imperialists of the 19th Century, Rhodes has been Prime Minister of the Cape Colony from 1890 to 1896. Earlier on, he came to Africa in his 20s and, at the time, was believed to be suffering from tuberculosis. As a businessman, Rhodes made an untold fortune from gold and diamond mining in the region; his exploits there would lead to a long-held contempt for the man, culminating in 2015 with a group of protesters in South Africa calling for removal of a statue of Rhodes, which was doused in pink paint and dragged away into storage.

There was more to Rhodes than just his business and political ambitions. Among his personal beliefs, Rhodes endorsed the idea of superiority he attributed to Anglo-Saxons, which he called “the first race in the world” in a portion of his will. He further wrote that, “the more of the world we [Anglo-Saxons] inhabit the better it is for the human race.” Rhodes hopeful aspirations for his Anglo-Saxon kindred carried further than mere personal beliefs. While in his twenties, Rhodes sought to solidify formation of a secret group, following a meeting that transpired with General Gordon of Khartoum. What resulted was Rhodes aptly-named group, The Secret Society, which was designed with one express intent and purpose: the institution of a New World Order, under British Imperial rule.

Rhodes began developing his philosophy after hearing a speech by John Ruskin (1819-1900) at Christ Church at Oxford University, which espoused an opinion, which by extension, furthered the teaching found in Plato’s Republic. Plato called for “…a ruling class with a powerful army to keep it in power and a society completely subordinate to the monolithic authority of the rulers.” Rhodes was also greatly influenced by Windom Reade’s book The Martyrdom of Man, published in 1872, which advocated Darwinism and the tremendous suffering that man must undergo, which was epitomized in the phrase “the survival of the fittest.” The book said that the “inevitable progress of man (was) to perfection.” Rhodes incorporated this rationalization into his thinking.

Frank Aydelotte was a Rhodes Scholar, president of the Association of Rhodes Trustees, and he wrote a book titled “The Vision Of Cecil Rhodes“. The following information comes from that book.

“The seven wills which Cecil Rhodes made between the ages of twenty-four and forty-six constitute a kind of spiritual autobiography. While they contain no reference to the events of his life, they reflect the most important part of him, his ideals and aspirations, and the development of his thoughts as to how those aspirations could best be realized. . . . Best known are the first (the Secret Society Will, written while he was still an undergraduate), and the last, which established the Rhodes Scholarships. The gradual change in Rhodes’s thinking which led him to give up his plan for a secret society and turn instead to a great and novel plan of international education can be traced in these interesting documents.” [13]

That is a very important passage. Frank Aydelotte claims Cecil Rhodes “gave up his plan for a secret society“, but Frank Aydelotte knew that wasn’t true because he led the American branch of the globalist movement for many years. He was also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) that was (is) a “front” for the Milner Round Table Group, and the Round Table was (is) a “front” for the Association of Helpers, the inner circle of Cecil Rhodes’ secret society. [14]

Professor Quigley discussed the man who led the American contingent of the globalist movement:

“At the time the president of Swarthmore College was Frank Aydelotte, the most important member of the Milner Group in the United States since the death of George Louis Beer. Dr. Aydelotte was one of the original Rhodes Scholars, attending Brasenose in 1905-1907. He was president of Swarthmore from 1921 to 1940; has been American secretary to the Rhodes Trustees since 1918; has been president of the American Association of Rhodes Scholars since 1930; has been a trustee of the Carnegie Foundation since 1922; and was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations for many years. In 1937, along with three other members of the Milner Group, he received from Oxford . . . the honorary degree of Doctor of Civil Law.” [24]

How do we know Cecil Rhodes created a secret society, and that the influence of that movement exists today?

  1. Cecil Rhodes discussed the secret society in his “Confession of Faith.” [15]
  2. Five of Cecil Rhodes’ seven wills mentioned the fact that he wanted to establish a secret society. Rhodes’ sixth will didn’t mention the secret society because it was organized in 1891. [16]
  3. William Stead wrote about the secret society after he was expelled from the organizaton. [17]
  4. Cecil Rhodes wrote a letter to William Stead that mentions “our Society.”
  5. H.G. Wells described the organization in a fictional book titled The New Machiavelli. [18]
  6. Frederic Howe met several members of “Milner’s Kindergarten” in 1919. [19]
  7. The Milner Group (the secret society) and their American counterparts organized the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations. [20]
  8. Alfred Zimmern was a member of the secret society from 1910-1922. [21]
  9. Professor Quigley “studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records.” [22]
  10. Gary Allen, author of None Dare Call It Conspiracy, examined Professor Quigley’s papers (in 1980), and found the records of the secret meetings.
  11. The major media concealed the existence of the CFR until about 2000.
  12. David Rockefeller organized the Trilateral Commission in 1973 after Gary Allen exposed the CFR in 1972.
  13. The movement suppressed Professor Quigley’s books.

Professor Carroll Quigley, considered by many the best historian of the 20th century, wrote in his book The Anglo-American Establishment, that:

What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. […] this secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day […] He aspired to be the creator of one of those vast semi-religious, quasi-political associations which, like the Society of Jesus, have played so large a part in the history of the world.

Rhodes’ Secret Society was outlined thusly by author Robin Brown, in his excellent book The Secret Society: Cecil John Rhodes’s Plan for a New World Order:

“The Secret Society has perhaps been passed over because it is not the subject matter of conventional biography. It has instead been categorized as conspiracy theory, the stuff of whodunits, involving diamonds by the ton, vast hordes of gold, political intrigue, presidents and prime ministers, plots involving the Nazi axis, Erin aristocrats and royals — and, of course, that particular ‘secret society’ that is world banking. But it is clearly not a conspiracy theory: Rhodes documented everything. The codicil attached to his first will announcing his intention to form a secret society to rule the world may be found at Rhodes House in Oxford. In addition, he nominated beneficiaries to run the Society and left them money to fund its activities. Finally, the Society still exists, albeit in several different forms. Though far less secretive, some of these do still lack transparency, and some… are more influential today than they were over a century ago.”

According to Professor Quigley:

“This society has been called by various names. During the frst decade or so it was called ‘the secret society of Cecil Rhodes,’ or ‘the dream of Cecil Rhodes.’ In the second and third decades of its existence it was known as ‘Milner’s Kindergarten’ (1901-1910) and as ‘the Round Table Group’ (1910-1920). Since 1920 it has been called by various names, depending on which phase of its activities was being examined. It has been called ‘The Times crowd,’ ‘the Rhodes crowd,’ the ‘Chatham House crowd,’ ‘The All Souls group,’ and ‘the Cliveden set.'” [23]

G. Edward Griffin explains in The Creature From Jekkyl Island, that:

Cecil Rhodes made one of the world’s greatest fortunes of the 19th century. Financed by Nathan Rothschild and the Bank of England, he established a monopoly over the diamond output of South Africa and most of the gold as well. He formed a secret society which included many of the top leaders of British government. Their elitist goal was nothing less than world domination and the establishment of a modern feudalist society controlled by themselves through the world’s central banks. In America, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was an outgrowth of that group.

Eustace Mullins states in The Curse of Canaan,

Cecil Rhodes was the agent for the Rothschilds when he secured their control over the vast diamond and gold reserves of South Africa. They still exercise control through DeBeers (diamonds) and the Anglo-American Corporation (gold). Rhodes had considerable holdings himself; when he died, Lord Nathan Rothschild emerged in 1891 as his sole trustee.

Rhodes’ Secret Society went on to become highly influential during World War I, and later, “appeasement initiatives” aimed toward placating figures such as the Duke of Windsor and, more notably, Adolf Hitler, would be spearheaded by groups associated with Rhodes’ Secret Society in the years leading up to World War II.

Of the various modern formations Brown noted earlier in the excerpt from his book above, Georgetown University History Professor Carroll Quigley described what he called “Round Table Groups”, which were essentially the same secret societal shoot-offs founded in 1891 by Cecil Rhodes and, later, Lord Alfred Milner. The groups, their formation, and subsequent operations were outlined by Quigley as follows, in his 1964 book Tragedy and Hope:

“As governor-general and high commissioner of South Africa in the period 1897 – 1905, Milner recruited a group of young men, chiefly from Oxford and from Toynbee Hall, to assist him in organizing his administration. Through his influence these men were able to win influential posts in government and international finance and became the dominant influence in British imperial and foreign affairs up to 1939. Under Milner in South Africa they were known as Milner’s Kindergarten until 1910. In 1909 – 1913 they organized semi-secret groups, known as Round Table Groups, in the chief British dependencies and the United States. These still function in eight countries. They kept in touch with each other by personal correspondence and frequent visits, and through an influential quarterly magazine, The Round Table, founded in 1910 and largely supported by Sir Abe Bailey’s money. In 1919 they founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) for which the chief financial supporters were sir Abe Bailey and the Astor family (owners of The Times). Similar Institutes of International Affairs were established in the chief British dominions and in the United States (where is known as the Council on Foreign Relations) in the period 1919 – 1927. After 1925 a somewhat similar structure of organizations, known as the Institute of Pacific relations, was set up in twelve countries holding territory in the Pacific area, the units in each British Dominion existing on an interlocking basis with the Round Table Group and the Royal Institute of International Affairs in the same country. In Canada the nucleus of this group consisted of Milner’s undergraduate friends at Oxford (such as Arthur Glazebrook and George Parkin), while in South Africa and India the nucleus was made up of former members of Milner’s Kindergarten.” (Quigley,Tragedy and Hope, p. 132)

Needless to say, the American Council on Foreign Relations maintains a healthy degree of attention for its dealings in areas of politics, governance, and international affairs. In my article A Brief History of Secret Societies in the Western World, I outlined a brief summary of the formation and current function of the CFR thusly:

The Council on Foreign Relations, which has its roots dating back to Woodrow Wilson’s presidency, may be one of the most “secret” of purported modern secret societies. It is often said that those who speak of official CFR business outside of meetings will be penalized with loss of their membership; the very definition of “secret” activities.

John Foster Dulles was an early member of the CFR, as was his brother, Allen Dulles, who went on to be the head of the CIA. Since Dulles’ tenure with the agency, virtually every CIA chief has also been a member of the CFR. However, the CFR’s influence doesn’t merely extend to the CIA; the State Department is equally involved in the group’s dealings.

As with many other secret societies, the CFR has its own magazine, Foreign Affairs, which serves as something of a public front for the organization, in periodical form.

This is an interesting historical side-note, about the publication of Foreign Affairs in association with the activities of groups like the CFR. As Quigley noted, a similar publication was (and still is) offered by the Round Table Groups, which can be more directly associated with Rhodes and his Secret Society than it’s aforementioned “modern” counterparts.

To what extent, even well after his own death, was Rhodes able to set the groundwork for the “New World Order” he envisioned? Arguably, the globalization is continually promoted today under the oversight of groups like the Bilderbergs, the CFR and its subsidiary known as the Trilateral Commission, and countless other organizations, groups, and yes, even secret fraternities and societies. Placed into proper historical context, the underpinnings of many of the most influential political groups known today stem back to the exploits of those like Rhodes, who, in all their obscurity, have indeed managed to have very lasting influence on world affairs.

Robin Brown paints Rhodes as a closet homosexual in his book The Secret Society: Cecil John Rhodes’s Plan for a New World Order. On page 144:

… a homosexual hegemony – which was already operative in the Secret Society – went on to influence, if not control, British politics at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Rhodes himself, the book alleges, was gay, and because homosexuality was a criminal offense in Britain at the time, he realized that gays only survived if they operated in:

… a society that remained secret, ring-fenced by wealth and political influence.

Since most secret societies require some form of sinful activity that binds them to secrecy such as gay sex and pedophilia, it is not an outrageous claim, but one that needs more investigation.

Abiotic Oil Theory

oil that is not (a-) made from decaying biological organisms (-biotic), but from rhythmic cycles in the mantle of Earth.  This theory (debunking the evolutionary fossil fuel theory) dates from the 19th Century when the French chemist Marcellin Berthelot and the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev proposed to explain the origin of oil and their theories were revived in the decade after 1950 in Russia out of necessity. The science behind the theory is sound and is based on experimental evidence in both the lab and in the field. In its simplest form, the theory is that carbon present in the magma beneath the crust reacts with hydrogen to form methane as well as a raft of other mainly alkane hydrocarbons. Particular mineral rocks such as granite and other silicon based rocks act as catalysts, which speed up the reaction without actually becoming involved or consumed in the process.

The capital fact to note is that petroleum was born in the depths of the Earth, and is only there that we must seek its origin Dmitri Mendeleev, 1877.

This theory has helped to identify and therefore develop large numbers of gas and oil deposits. Examples of such fields are the South Khylchuyu field and the controversial Sakhalin II field.  Experiments have shown that under extreme conditions of heat and pressure it is possible to convert iron oxide, calcium carbonate and water into methane, with hydrocarbons containing up to 10 carbon atoms being produced by Russian scientists last century and confirmed in recent US experiments. The absence of large quantities of free gaseous oxygen in the magma prevents the hydrocarbons from burning and therefore forming the lower energy state molecule carbon dioxide. The conditions present in the Earth’s mantle would easily be sufficient for these small hydrocarbon chains to polymerise into the longer chain molecules found in crude oil.

The Nazi’s, who had been making synthetic oil out of coal, knew that oil is abiotic and not a fossil fuel that is biologically made from certain types of decaying matter. They developed what’s known as the Fischer-Tropsch equations which explained that the earth makes oil under intense pressure and heat deep within the earth on an ongoing basis. It’s interesting that the same biomarkers found in oil are present in coal and represent, of course, parts of prokaryotic archaea that re-worked primordial hydrocarbons.

Reported in ScienceDaily in 2009, researchers at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm have managed to prove that fossils from animals and plants are not necessary for crude oil and natural gas to be generated. The findings are revolutionary since this means, on the one hand, that it will be much easier to find these sources of energy and, on the other hand, that they can be found all over the globe.

Using our research we can even say where oil could be found in Sweden,” says Vladimir Kutcherov, a professor at the Division of Energy Technology at KTH.

Together with two research colleagues, Vladimir Kutcherov has simulated the process involving pressure and heat that occurs naturally in the inner layers of the earth, the process that generates hydrocarbon, the primary component in oil and natural gas. According to Kutcherov, the findings are a clear indication that the oil supply is not about to end, which researchers and experts in the field have long feared.

He adds that there is no way that fossil oil, with the help of gravity or other forces, could have seeped down to a depth of 10.5 kilometers in the state of Texas, for example, which is rich in oil deposits. As Kutcherov sees it, this is further proof, alongside his own research findings, of the genesis of these energy sources — that they can be created in other ways than via fossils. This has long been a matter of lively discussion among scientists.

“There is no doubt that our research proves that crude oil and natural gas are generated without the involvement of fossils. All types of bedrock can serve as reservoirs of oil,” says Vladimir Kutcherov, who adds that this is true of land areas that have not yet been prospected for these energy sources.

But the discovery has more benefits. The degree of accuracy in finding oil is enhanced dramatically — from 20 to 70 percent. Since drilling for oil and natural gas is a very expensive process, the cost picture will be radically altered for petroleum companies, and in the end probably for consumers as well.

“The savings will be in the many billions,” says Vladimir Kutcherov.

To identify where it is worthwhile to drill for natural gas and oil, Vladimir Kutcherov has used his research to arrive at a new method. It involves dividing the globe into a finely meshed grid. The grid corresponds to fissures, so-called ‘migration channels,’ through underlying layers under the surface of the earth. Wherever these fissures meet, it is suitable to drill.

According to Vladimir Kutcherov, these research findings are extremely important, not least as 61 percent of the world’s energy consumption derives from crude oil and natural gas.

The next step in this research work will involve more experiments, but above all refining the method will make it easier to find places where it is suitable to drill for oil and natural gas.

Vladimir Kutcherov, Anton Kolesnikov, and Alexander Goncharov’s research work was published in the scientific journal Nature Geoscience.

Early on, there was initial skepticism concerning the concept that oil and gas were byproducts of organic decay. The following quote, from the late Sir Fred Hoyle FRS (1982), exemplifies the suspicions that the accumulation of deceased animals and plants could not be the source of our planet’s oil and gas.

The suggestion that petroleum might have arisen from some transformation of squashed fish or biological detritus is surely the silliest notion to have been entertained by substantial numbers of persons over an extended period of time.

The Theory of Abiotic Oil (sometimes called Abiogenic Theory) can be traced back to the early 19th century and notions of magmatism and petroleum, which some scientists thought fueled volcanoes. This concept, that petroleum is linked to volcanic activities, has been debunked, but the theory that oil is formed apart from the decay of animals and plants has persisted.

Russian geologist Nikolai Alexandrovitch Kudryavtsev was the first proponent of the modern theory of abiotic oil, in 1951. He is considered Father of Modern Abiotic Oil Theory. He argued that no petroleum resembling the chemical composition of natural crudes has ever been made from plant material in the laboratory under conditions resembling those in nature. He analyzed the geology of the Athabasca bituminous sands in Alberta, Canada (Athabasca Tar Sands) and concluded that no “source rocks” could form the enormous volume of oil in those tar sands (reserves currently estimated about 1.7 trillion barrels) and the most plausible explanation is that oil is abiotic, abiogenic, inorganic and that comes from deep inside the Earth through deep faults.

Kudryavtsev’s Rule states that “any region in which hydrocarbons are found at one level will be seen to have hydrocarbons in large or small quantities, but at all levels down to and into the basement rock.

Kudryavtsev worked with such brilliant scientists as Petr N. Kropotkin, Vladimir B. Porfir’ev, Emmanuil B. Chekaliuk, Vladilen A. Krayushkin, Georgi E. Boyko, Georgi I. Voitov, Grygori N. Dolenko, Iona V. Greenberg, Nikolai S. Beskrovny, Victor F. Linetsky and many others.

The overwhelming preponderance of geological evidence compels the conclusion that crude oil and natural petroleum gas have no intrinsic connection with biological matter originating near the surface of the Earth. They are primordial materials which have been erupted from great depths. Vladimir B. Porfir’yev, 1956

Since then, many scientists have embraced this theory citing compelling evidence (Abbass, 1996; Bergey, 2012; Pfeiffer, 2003; Losh et al., 2002; Olson & Ashworth, 2013). A leading voice in this slowly building scientific consensus was the respected astronomer and professor emeritus at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, Thomas Gold (1920-2004). For years, professor Gold had been promoting the idea that oil is actually a renewable, primordial syrup that is continually manufactured by the Earth under ultrahot conditions in the presence of tremendous pressures.

According to Gold, as this substance migrates to the surface, it is attacked by bacteria, making it appear to have an organic origin (Gold, 1999). When questioned about the official narrative of oil’s origins, Gold, a scientist at Cornell University replied “That’s nonsense,””There’s not a shred of evidence from chemistry, geology, or any other science to support it. It has no place in textbooks and school classrooms.”
Other evidence that the Earth’s oil supply is being renewed includes the Eugene Island #330 oil field. It has been verified that Eugene Island is rapidly refilling itself with oil, perhaps from some continuous source miles below the Earth’s surface (Lakoski, 2011; Cooper, 1999). The facts are incontrovertible. Production at the oil field, deep in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana, was supposed to have declined years ago.

In addition, for a while, it behaved like any normal field. Following its 1973 discovery, Eugene Island 330’s output peaked at about 15,000 barrels a day. By 1989, production had slowed to about 4,000 barrels a day. Then suddenly – some say almost inexplicably – Eugene Island’s fortunes reversed. The field, operated by PennzEnergy Co. (Pennzoil), is now producing 13,000 barrels a day and probable reserves have rocketed to more than 400 million barrels from 60 million. Stranger still, scientists studying the field say the crude coming out of the pipe is of a geological age quite different from the oil that gushed 10 years ago (Cooper, 2011).

L. Fletcher Pouty, who served as Chief of Special Operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President John F. Kennedy, remarked:

“Any geologist will tell you, well, most geologists will tell you that OIL IS CREATED BY THE MAGMA OF THE EARTH. The oil wells in Pennsylvania that were pumped out dry at the turn of the century and capped are now filled with oil again.”

He continued:

“The deepest fossil ever found has been at about 16,000 feet below sea level; yet we are getting oil from wells drilled to 30,000 and more. How could fossil fuel get down there? If it was once living matter, it had to be on the surface. If it did turn into petroleum, at or near the surface, how could it ever get to such depths? What is heavier Oil or Water?” Water: so it would go down, not oil. Oil would be on top, if it were “organic” and “lighter.”

“It was made to be thought a “Fossil” fuel by the Nineteenth oil producers to create the concept that it was of limited supply and therefore extremely valuable. This fits with the “Depletion”allowance philosophical scam.”

One of the questions that should be addressed has to do with the incredible push back against this theory from the evolutionary scientific community (Heinberg, 2004; King, 2006; Termotto, 2010). Why would the fossil fuel camp defend against this not-so-new and well-documented hypothesis? One can only surmise that the view of ever-diminishing oil reserves fits into the green energy movement’s political views; therefore, the concept that oil and gas might be renewable resources is not politically correct.

There is a more important aspect to this debate. It has to do with the evolutionary worldview that it supported by the current consensus of millions-to-billions of years. The concept that our fossil fuels are the result of prior mass extinctions fits into the evolutionary paradigm. This materialistic and entirely naturalistic worldview is faithfully promoted in the mainstream media. They dutifully repeat anything these evolutionary scientists report as if what they say are undisputed facts. The millions and millions of years of evolutionary time are introduced to support the fact that, according to Darwin’s theory, change occurs so slowly that it cannot be seen with the naked eye or detected in the fossil record. This was, and continues to be, a foundational aspect of evolutionary theory. The hundreds of millions of years of death and decay are thought to be the source of the oil and gas reserves around the world. If the Abiotic Oil Theory is true, then the false evidence appearing real of the millions-to-billions of years of evolutionary time is no longer necessary, at least where oil and gas production are concerned.

Today, Darwin’s theory is presented as a foregone conclusion and, if you will, that is the prevailing scientific consensus. Even when we find what appears to be partially fossilized remnants of connective tissue, blood vessels with what appear to be intact red blood cells within an allegedly 70 million year old T. Rex femur (Nova, 2007); we continue to accept the scientific consensus that, given enough time, molecules can morph themselves into men. This completely unsubstantiated view, with regard to the T. Rex blood remnants, is presented as a 70 million year old miracle of preservation. The consensus of billions of years of deep time continues to be invoked. This is in spite of the fact that, under certain conditions, fossilization can occur rapidly (Veith, 2009). This view persists when it is evident that, apart from divine intervention, matter can neither be created nor destroyed. That is not a model, a hypothesis, or a theory; it is a “law” of physics.

More than a century after Louis Pasteur finally debunked spontaneous generation; evolutionists cling to a completely imaginary big bang beginning of everything as well as their musings concerning abiogenesis. This includes the possibility of extraterrestrial sources of life, e.g. Directed Panspermia (Crick & Orgel, 1973). So much for the scientific consensus as it is applied to the origin of life.

The world is fighting over oil, not because we are running out of oil, but because there is so much of it. It is not the shortage of oil that drives nations to war, but the overwhelming desire to control it. Oil is power. That is one of the main reasons for Gulf War I and Gulf War II.

But, the real reason has to do with Globalism and the agenda of the New World Order (World Financiers Inc.) The US has enough fuel reserves to last for an estimated 3500 years and any world shortages are not due lack of reserves. It is the aim for total control so they can maintain the price squeeze. – TONY  (A. R.) PITT

When we begin to examine the facts, apart from the bias of evolutionary dogma, we discover that much of what is held up as evidence in favor of Darwinian evolution is actually false evidence appearing real. What is of particular interest to those who are spiritually inclined is that the acronym for “false evidence appearing real” spells FEAR. The stark reality is this that worldview choices have very serious consequences. After all, if atheistic evolutionary theory is true, then the Word of God and the gospel are not. Atheistic evolution says, the best we can hope for is the struggle to survive as long as possible and then, to be overcome by disease finally succumbing to death. The result is a very bleak, hopeless and utterly meaningless life. However, if the Word of God is true, then humanity has a glorious hope in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Two thousand years ago, a Jewish fisherman named John opened his eyewitness account of the coming of the Messiah with the following introduction.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men, John 1:1-4.

Do not make the mistake of accepting a scientific consensus, especially when it is being used to support false evidence appearing real. When we reject fear-based evolutionary lies, we can choose God’s forgiveness and the gift of everlasting life that is so freely offered, by grace through faith, in the risen Savior, Jesus of Nazareth.

Books to read:

At the end of World War II, U.S. intelligence agents confiscated thousands of Nazi documents developed by German chemists unlocking the secrets of how oil is formed. When the Nazis took power, Germany had resolved to develop enough synthetic oil to wage war successfully, even without abundant national oil reserves. For decades, these confiscated German documents remained largely ignored in a United States where petro-geologists and petro-chemists were convinced that oil was a “fossil fuel” created by ancient decaying biological debris.

Clearly, big U.S. oil companies had no financial interest in explaining to the American people that oil was a natural product made on a continual basis deep within the earth. If there were only so many fossils in geological time, there could only be so much oil. Big oil could then charge more for a finite, rapidly disappearing resource than for a natural, renewable, and probably inexhaustible one.

Once oil is understood as an abundantly available resource, there is no reason hydro-carbon fuels cannot indefinitely propel the development and production of cheap energy reserves the United States needs to maintain its dominant position in the emerging global economy. The Great Oil Conspiracy, updated for this paperback release with a new chapter by Dr. Corsi, explains how German chemists had cracked the code to synthetic oil, and why the U.S. government is trying to keep their findings from you to this day.
