WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

Essential oils are the natural extracts from the seeds, stems, roots, and flowers from plants. They are the lifeblood of the plant and there to protect the plant against predators and disease. How cool is that! As essential oils have these incredibly protective properties to support their systems they too can also support our systems like they do for themselves. 

They have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. While modern medicine is moving towards a more holistic approach towards wellness, individuals are looking at integrating both modern and holistic solutions for their family's healthcare, homes and life. 

Oils are great to use as natural solutions for making household cleaning products, beauty products and as natural medicine.


HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS? 

Aromatically - placing a few drops into your hand and rubbing together and taking a deep breath in (I like to close my eyes when doing this).  Another is placing a few drops into a diffuser and inhaling the aroma. 

Topically - Mixing the oil with a carrier oil or into a roller bottle and massaging it into the skin. 

Internally - A drop or two into a glass of water, tea, coffee or while cooking. Please ensure that the essential oil that you use is 100% pure. As there are many products in the marketplace that are mixed with synthetics and therefore not safe or will have the same effect. 

This is why I have chosen to work with DoTERRA as it goes wayy beyond what is pure. Transparency and purity is what this company stands for ensuring that each product is produced with the utmost integrity and grown ethically that supports the growers to ensure that they thrive.
