I’ve been dabbling with essential oils for a few years, primarily for aromatherapy and in our bath water. More recently, I’ve really been exploring the array of uses and health benefits and I am in L-O-V-E! My collection is growing quickly and I am using these powerhouse oils to:
- improve and maintain immunity
- support sleep
- create natural moisturizers and face wash
- replace medications
- replace toxin-filled home cleaning products
- provide balance and serenity to our home
Essential oils are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, peels, and other parts of plants. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. They are referenced in the Bible and have long been touted for their healing properties in cultures across the world.
They were medicine before man created synthetic medications. Our society has far removed itself from using nature to heal, but to me, it just makes perfect sense. God has given us everything we need.
Buyer Beware: Not all oils are created equal. In my exploration, I’ve done a lot of research on various brands and only purchase oils that are pure, therapeutic grade essential oil. You get what you pay for and depending on how you are using the oil, cheaper brands could cause adverse effects.
This is why I recommend and opt for dōTERRA® oils. I signed up as a Wellness Advocate with dōTERRA to gain wholesale pricing and because I know I can trust the quality of the oils. They are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® and third-party tested for purity. Their oils are a daily part of my health care and ‘beauty regime’. I use them every day… EVERY DAY!
The uses and benefits of essential oils are endless….
- Support/balance hormones
- Ease feelings of anxiety
- Support your family’s health
- Boost metabolism
- Make homemade products
I’ll share more through blog posts.
