I love plants and the medicine they give us freely. Plants speak to us in different ways, we just have to listen to understand what they are telling us and how they are trying to help us. Long ago I learned how to make plant medicine using the Simpler's method. Years later I found out that the essential oils derived from the plants are even stronger and more potent. I began adding the essential oils to what I was making to ensure the quality I was making was top notch. Then I would add these oils to butters and make balms. What a win-win for my family and friends.
Essential oils are a great way to support your whole-body wellness and enhance every aspect of your life. Still don't know what an essential oil is? Next time you drive by a field of fresh lavender or a pine forest, breathe deeply—you’re experiencing the soul-soothing power of essential oils. Essential oils are more than nice scents; these powerful plant extracts are your path to the lifelong wellness! Essential oils are aromatic, concentrated plant extracts that are lovingly harvested from farm-grown and wild-crafted plants, herbs, and trees. They are carefully obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapping. These pure essential oils are more potent than dried herbs and far more powerful than the botanical's from which they are extracted. This is why it is so important to know that just a drop or two is more than enough. Open a bottle of Young Living's Lemon Vitality and take a deep breath, it is incredible how soothing, crisp and clean the scent is triggering emotions and memories. Then add a drop or two to a glass of water and enjoy.
How to Use Essential Oils:
From the earliest of times essential oils have been used to for cleansing and religious purposes. You can access the power of essential oils in many ways, but the most common practices include aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption. The method I used of bringing the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals' to my home was done in measurable steps. Start by switching to non-toxic products. I got on the rewards program to continue making my products such as toothpaste, and I started switching out the products I don't have time to make anymore like shampoo, body wash, and laundry detergent. I use Peppermint EO added to a carrier oil for back and knee pain and when added to Epsom Salt, wow is all I can say. Peppermint Vitality is great for those terrible timing stomach aches. My family's health is of the utmost importance to me and when my son tells me he has a headache, I dab lavender and infuse in his room. I use essential oils every day with one of my favorites being Thieves. I work in a hospital and ensuring I don't bring anything home is paramount to keeping my children safe and healthy. I use it for cleaning our floors, kitchen, bathrooms at home and sanitize my hands and take Thieves Vitality to keep me healthy at work. There are so many ways to incorporate the healthy lifestyle in measurable steps from cleaning products, to the Vitality line which offers Oregano Basil and many others to enhance what we cook, to makeup and vitamins which I got for the kids and every so often I take one just because it is so yummy. Clove EO is another favorite in my home for those toothaches. My son had a lot of pain due to a tooth that was infected and Clove took away the pain. I also use it in addition to a few others in my pain oils and balms. I cringe when I walk into someone's home and they have those so-called air purifiers in the electrical sockets, yikes! Diffusing is a natural way of obtaining true essence without the nasty chemicals. Nature is amazing and I am so thankful every day that we are able to incorporate essential oils in every aspect of our health and wellness journey. T I can guide you towards your wellness journey with the oils you need by sharing what has worked for me and my family.
