Mother Earth is full of natural plants that have been used for centuries to promote wellness & alleviate symptoms of illness. Explore the links below to learn how you can incorporate natures gifts into your daily life!
Essential oils are plant extracts that have been used for thousands of years to improve physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. They are not made in a lab like the other synthetic scents you find in many perfumes, beauty products, and household cleaning products in the store.
Aromatherapy (the act of inhaling the scent of the plant for its' effects) has been used since ancient times for health & wellness. Each essential oil has it's own unique healing properties, uses, and effects when inhaled. They can be used to enhance sleep, calm anxiety, motivate and energize, elevate the mood, alleviate headaches, reduce nausea, and boost immunity.
The application of essential oils on the skin also goes back thousands of years - as our ancestors used a variety of plants for their natural healing properties. Today essential oils can be used for skin care, to treat scars & blemishes, to reduce pain, soothe sunburns, to fight illness, and enhance immunity & wellness.
Like anything we choose on our journey to wellness, it's important to know what's in the products we buy. Not all essential oils are created equal. Sure some of the ones you may find on Amazon are cheap and may even have 5 stars. But the people buying those may not be looking for the purest oils for health & wellness. Be sure to purchase your oils from a company that knows exactly what is in their oils - choose oils that contain no synthetic additives, no man-made scents that smell 'like' the plant, and most importantly that contain no toxic chemicals. Personally, I purchase all of my oils through Young Living, but Doterra is also a reputable EO company.
