What are Essential Oils?
I don’t like feeling clueless…
When it comes to the health of myself and my family. Yet every time we came down with an ailment or affliction, that’s exactly how I would feel.
Helpless. Stuck. And frustrated.
Our modern healthcare system is broken folks…
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of modern medicine in certain cases. If I’m ever in a car accident or have a broken leg, I’ll be pleased-as-punch to be in the hospital. I’m very thankful to live in a era where we have access to knowledgeable doctors and nurses.
But what about preventing some of the horrible diseases that afflict our society? Or helping my body heal itself? Or fighting infection without wiping out all the good bacteria in my gut? Those were the questions that weren’t getting answers.
Did you know…
- A whopping $45 trillion per year is spent on health care world-wide, yet our culture is sicker than ever.
- The USA is one of the biggest spenders on the entire globe when it comes to healthcare, yet it ranks 37th on the list of the world’s best healthcare systems.
- More than a quarter of the children and teenagers who live in the US take regular medication
Enter the Miracle of Essential Oils
It’s hard to deny the power of plants, and humans have been using plants as medicine for thousands and thousands of years. Clove oil & rosemary oil were the most popular essential oil produced during the middle ages.
If you’ve ever opened the lid of a bottle of essential oil, then you are well acquainted with the powerful aroma that they carry. But don’t let the tantalizing scents fool you—these little brown bottles are much more than mere perfume.
Essential oils are powerful and have a mind-boggling array of uses. They provide have many natural properties that can benefit the body in many different ways. Herbal essential oils have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-tumoral, anti-parasitic & anti-septic properties. They are unique in that they can cross the cellular membrane because their molecules are lipophilic, which is pretty amazing since anti-biotics cannot do this and therefore, have no effect on viruses.
Try this at home: Squeeze the peel of a ripe orange. The fragrant residue on your hand is full of essential oils.
Essential Oils Have Changed My Life…
For a long time, I used essential oils as all-natural perfume or to make my home smell pretty, but I now use essential oils on a daily basis in every area of my home. My medicine cabinet has been completely transformed, and I am now empowered with the tools and knowledge to care for my family.
