Mother Nature Knows Best
She really does! Which is why I’ve always sought out the most natural options available…
Whether it’s cleaning my counters or moisturizing my skin, what feels normal to me has long been the most natural solution.
In fact, my children have never even used antibiotics! No — I’m not crazy, and I don’t flatly refuse the use of antibiotics, either, but I have always opted to explore the natural route first.
Did I mention my children are 10 and 13 years old? For 13 years the natural route has yet to fail my family!
Essential oils have been used for centuries to uplift emotions, provide beautiful skin care, reduce toxins in our environment, boost immunity, cleanse our homes, and enhance flavours in cooking and baking. And there’s A LOT of research to back up their many uses.
As a doctor and a mama, I LOVE the purity and potency of essential oils. There is nothing as empowering as having the tools and remedies that you need to care for your family on hand whenever you need them, and knowing both HOW to use them and that they’re SAFE and EFFECTIVE.
What are Essential Oils?
Have you ever enjoyed the scent of a freshly cut, juicy orange? Then you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils! Naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. These aromatic compounds (essential oils) provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being wonderfully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and in wellness practices.
How do I use Essentials Oils?
There are three primary methods for using essential oils.
Each of them is incredibly effective and powerful.
Certain essential oils can be very stimulating when diffused, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also purify the air of unwanted odors and toxins.
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. They readily benefit different body systems with this method of use.
