Strange but true – Do you know that in World War II, Rue is used to create a truth serum? While I hope you don’t need to use it for interrogation, here are some interesting ways you can use Rue:
- The plant Rue (botanical name: Ruta Graveolens) has been used for centuries to shed light on our own truth. This is especially the case where regret and grief are so deeply rooted in the body that these emotions have hidden our truth to the point of total self denial
- Rue helps us to release that grief and embrace our spiritual path so that we have the means to be empowered once again. Although, sometimes it is hard for us to look at, or know the truth of the matter, it is also the one thing that releases us energetically and allows us to move forward
- You can also use Rue essential oil to dissolve excess calcium deposits or bone spurs
- It is also useful for treating fungal growths and infections
Rue is one of those essential oils that seems controversial if you do a quick Google. However it is important to understand the difference between homeopathic Ruta Graveolens, and the herb / plant version of rue, especially when buying the products over the counter at your local pharmacy or health food store. Herbal rue can be purchased for culinary purposes or as an extract, whereas homeopathic ruta (essential oil) is found in liquid or pellet form.
Although there are potential side effects associated with high doses of rue, homeopathic ruta is considered to be safe and effective for many health problems. If leaves are ingested in doses of more than 120 milligrams, or more than 1/2 cup of oil, rue can cause some serious health issues.
That is A LOT, and that is when ingesting it. Ruta Graveolens is in about 5 or 6 other essential oil blends Young Living has… RutaVala being one of them. If you truly research this oil and its homeopathic abilities, you would be AMAZED! It is a powerful plant with some awesome benefits that are safe.
