What are Essential Oils?
I used to think that essential oils were just smelly things for your home and because I’m not someone who believes in filing my life with toxic scents I had dismissed them. However when my friend and naturopath recommended them to me I knew there must be more to them. Since then they have absolutely changed my life. Read my story here.
Turns out when you purchase TRUE Essential oils, they are highly concentrated pure extracts from plants that are 50-70 times for powerful than herbs. They have been used throughout history (think about Jesus being brought frankincense and myrrh) for their health benefits and affect your body on a cellular level, in a good way! You can use them not only for physical benefits but also emotional wellbeing and spiritual health also!
As someone who is very open to holistic health and inspiring wellness, it is these benefits that have drawn me to learning, reading and experimenting with using essential oils. I must admit I am now completely addicted and use them in every way possible; aromatically, topically and internally as well as making my own homemade perfumes, soaps, candles, deodorant etc with them. I use them with confidence now knowing that I am not using the toxic synthetic version of them.
