What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are valuable liquids that are distilled from many different parts of plants. They have been used for thousands of years and were our FIRST medicines! Plants are where we get the ideas for modern medicines. Essential oils are unique in that every oil contains anywhere from 200 to 800 different chemical constituents. This means that in just one oil there can be hundreds of different chemicals that can heal you. This is an amazing thought and better yet, there are no negative side effects like you find with modern medicine! Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to help improve physical, spiritual, and mental health. Certified pure essential oils are not only beneficial when inhaled, but also when used topically and internally.
Topically, the certified pure essential oils can help with certain skin conditions, such as acne and rashes. One of the most helpful uses of these oils is in massage. They help reduce inflammation and relax the muscles, promoting healing through better energy, as well as lymph flow and drainage. At the same time, depending upon the oil used, the scent will contribute to relaxation or perhaps increased energy once the massage has been completed. Our massage therapist is a pro at finding just the right oils to help your specific problem.
Internally, essential oils like peppermint and oregano assist with stomach upset and immune health. Peppermint oil will help with indigestion or sick stomach, while oregano can help your body combat viral and bacterial infections. Not many oils can be taken internally, so it’s best to discuss your options with our professional oil distributors. Certified Pure essential oils can also be added to water and diffused to create healthy air fresheners. Besides making your home smell wonderful, you will improve your family’s health. For relaxation, try lavender, frankincense, or chamomile. If you want to energize your family and improve mental sharpness, try citrus oil such as lemon or grapefruit. Or, if the sick season has caught up with you and your family, eucalyptus can assist with clear breathing, and also supports healthy immune system function.
An important word about essential oils – you will want to make sure you use the highest quality oils that you can find. Poor quality oils can be a waste of money as they won’t have the desired effect, and can in fact hurt you. That is why we choose to use and distribute only the highest quality certified pure essential oils.
