How Are Essential Oils Used?
Essential oils are most widely used for their aromatic benefits; however, the purest essential oils can be used topically and many can be ingested as well. The resulting effects of applying essential oils can be quite profound (as I can personally attest to through my own experiences). I have seen these oils do some truly incredible, powerful healing – and quickly too.
In upcoming posts, I will share with you some of the ways that I’ve used essential oils (both for myself and others) to heal various ailments, improve overall wellbeing, and for culinary and dietary purposes. So Stay Tuned!
Apply a couple drops in palms, rub together and inhale or use a diffuser.
Most oils can be applied neat with no carrier oils and are easily absored by the skin.
Can be added to foods & drinks, or put in capsules and swallowed, or even dropped under your tongue.
Now there are some who say that essential oils act merely as a placebo…
to them I say,
“If essential oils are placebos – then they are placebos that WORK.”
Did you know that placebos work in up to 60% of patients with almost every kind of symptom? So if the power is really in believing, then I personally would rather believe in a natural substance than some chemical created in a lab to be effective. Unlike essential oils, pharmaceutical drugs usually come with a long list of side effects that can be much worse than the problem your trying to solve! At least try to heal something first with essential oils, and if it isn’t effective, then pop a pill. Nature deserves the first opportunity. The worst that can happen is you have little bottles of pure aromatic amazingness that didn’t happen to fix the exact health issue you were hoping it would, but at least everything smells so much better afterwards. And, depending on which oils you have, things will taste much better as well. Rest assured though – the therapeutic benefits of essential oils has been well documented over the centuries.
The reality is that I wouldn’t have been using them for so many years if they weren’t effective.
The Market is Flooded With Essential Oil Companies – How to Choose the Right One?
Important things to consider when shopping for essential oils are:
Are they being responsibly and sustainably sourced?
Are the products really what they say they are?
Have they been tested and validated by a third party?
Is the company transparent?
