For thousands of years, pure essential oils have provided simple health solutions. Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems,roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.
The complex molecular structure of pure essential oils goes right to work on the damaged cells of the body, entering the bloodstream quickly, bringing instructions to repair, renew or replace. Health is reclaimed and new energy is found.
There are numerous reports of effectiveness in the essential oil community, bringing hope where there was none. I have heard, read and experienced many personal stories of hopeless situations. Luckily I have been able to address and help by following careful protocols with essential oils.
Our organic bodies were designed to heal themselves when given the right organic assistance. It just makes sense!
Happiness is a matter of choice but when issues of life overwhelm and begin to crowd in, a little help is in order. Our limbic system, along with our emotional brain, is connected to our sense of smell. Essential oil scents release the body’s natural hormones that relax the mind and body and with no side effects!
The Ways to Use Essential Oils are Simple and Effective
- Topically: Use on the body’s largest organ, the skin. This can be done directly on the area of concern, using 1-3 drops. Application directly on the sole of the feet, behind the ears, on the wrists or along the spine will bring relief, comfort and immune support. Knowledge of reflexology can assist with application of essential oils for relief. Aroma touch, an essential oil application technique of 8 essential oils, is one of the best ways to experience the benefits topically.
- Aromatically: This involves inhaling a fine mist that has evaporated from the oil. A cold air diffuser is suggested. Inhalation effects mood, cleanses air and opens airways. It also can affect memory, hormones and emotions throughout the olfactory system.
- Internally: While not all brands of essential oils can be taken internally, FDA has approved the use of some for internal use. Make sure they have the designation of GRAS standard. Internal use is most beneficial for the digestive system, mouth, throat, liver, urogenital tract and cleansing.
Continuing education is the key to discovering the power of pure essential oils. I encourage you to research and study this highly effective path for health, hope and happiness.
