What are Essential Oils?
I continue to use herbs from my garden to supplement my food; always drink herbal tea and eat garlic when I feel run down; and the good old hot toddy is a go-to during winter months.
About 2 years ago, a friend introduced me to Therapeutic Grade essential oils. Concentrated, hydrophobic liquids or compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants, they are the pure essence and defense mechanisms that plants use to stay healthy and support immunity. They are also 50 – 70 times more powerful than herbs. I still love using herbs but I thought to myself, “Wow – that much more powerful than herbs, perfectly bottled and available to me all winter when my herbs have been buried under feet of snow?” I couldn’t wait to learn more.
How can I use Essential Oils
Aromatically. This is a fancy way of saying “smell them” or, “diffuse them in the air.” By just sniffing in the powerful aromas, there is an immediate response by our brain, which is stimulated by the different scents and therefore properties of each individual oil. This is the best way to change or lift your mood if you need a little pick-me-up. (I always keep peppermint and wild orange in my car for long drives!)
Topically. That’s right. You can put them on your skin. However, not all essential oils are created equally! Email me to find out the only essential oil company I trust to use in this way. Years ago, in college, I used essential oils. I was told I could NOT put them on my skin – rather could just sniff them or put them on my pillow at night. When I researched and realized that you could put pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils directly on your skin (some “hot” oils should be diluted with coconut or another kind of carrier oil), I couldn’t believe the results. (Did you eat too much? Have stomach discomfort? There is a digestive blend that was made for soothing an upset belly and you can put it directly on your abdomen.)
Internally. The first time my friend told me to swallow a drop of peppermint in my water, I asked her, “What do you put in your oils that makes them ingestible?” She said, “It’s what we DON’T put in them.” The oils I had been using years earlier had added fillers. They may have been heat extracted. (The oils I use are only either cold-pressed (citrus oils) or steam-distilled (plant-based oils) and they have a five-method testing system to ensure the purity and “beyond-organic-ness” of their oils. Email me to find out more about this system.) What sold me was their bug repellent blend. I was always been the girl at outdoor parties who was inside helping clean all too early in the evening instead of outside enjoying the crackling fire and stars. I refused to put chemical-ridden bug spray on me and would run the other way when people started spraying it around me. People usually thought I was crazy but if you don’t know by now – those chemicals go DIRECTLY INTO YOUR BLOODSTREAM and have been known to cause all sorts of diseases. The only products I put on my skin (because they ALL travel into your bloodstream!) are natural, therapeutic grade products. After applying the essential oil therapeutic grade bug repellent blend on me at one particular party a couple summers ago, people started asking me, “Why are you the only one not slapping bugs away from yourself?!” My eyes widened. This stuff actually works!
I was hooked. Aren’t you?
How do I and Where can I buy Essential Oils?
Email me for more information – I’d love to show you how!
Remember I said I used to use essential oils years ago and I was told not to put them on my skin or to ingest them? There are many essential oil companies out there. There is only ONE company who I stand behind to ensure I am getting the highest quality Therapeutic Grade essential oils to supplement my overall health. Email me or leave a note over at the contact page to find out more about which ones. Some people consult me, “I bought some oils at the store but it doesn’t say on the bottle that I can take it internally – should I anyway?” NO. Absolutely not. If it is recommended that you not take them internally, why would you use them or even put them on your skin? There is only one essential oils company that produce the purest essential oils that I would trust to put in and on my body.
Best way to buy
Think BJs or Costco membership. You pay a small yearly fee to get the best prices around.
Here’s how it works:
When you email me, or contact me I will send you a link with step-by-step instructions on how to sign up for wholesale prices for just $35 for the entire year. Even if you only buy 2 oils a year, it is worth this one-time investment to get 25% off of retail. At the end of a year, it is only $25 to re-up, and guess what? They send you a free bottle of peppermint, so essentially (pun intended :)), it’s free.
Why buy an enrollment kit when you only want 2 oils? These essential oils work. When you get peppermint and it soothes your headache, and lemon, which cleans your counters and helps to detoxify, and lavender, which soothes skin irritations, and helps you sleep, you’ll wish you had more. Enrollment kits are a smart way to get involved so it doesn’t cost you mucho dolores down the line. The best part? When you order an intro kit when you’re first starting out, the wholesale membership fee ($35) is waived.
