An essential oil is that aromatic, volatile liquid that is within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds and is usually extracted through steam distillation.
The chemistry of essential oils is extremely complex. It makes my head spin, but I persevere! There are hundreds of different and unique chemical compounds in an essential oil.
The best essential oils are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs because of the distillation process.
Essential Oils are substance's that definitely deserve the respect of proper education - which is something you don't get from suppliers in department stores and elsewhere!
In my training and investigation into the world of essential oils it is very apparent that not all essential oils are created equal.
Over 95% sold are of perfume grade and not safe for therapeutic use.
Knowing your source (where the oils were planted, how, when, seed used, cultivating practices, harvesting practices, distilling methods, and testing methods is paramount to your safety and the safety of your family and pets. If the supplier cannot answer any of these questions - WALK AWAY!
There are many methods of applying essential oils: we can diffuse them, apply them topically and ingest them. Remember what I said...know your source and be educated! This does not mean you go to a store, open a bottle and ingest it! On the contrary!
Essential Oils have been around for thousands of years. There are over 200 references to Essential oils in the Bible.
The reintroduction of essential oils into modern times first began during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Today, according to Statistics MRC, the Global Essential Oil Market is expected to reach $12.85 billion by 2023. That's a lot of essential oils coming into the market.
This means the consumer needs to be more educated than ever.
I have taken many courses, attended many summits to expand my knowledge and education on essential oils. My desire is to share this knowledge with you so you can develop your own wellness path on safe ground.
I bring to you articles fully researched and supported by professionals in the armoatherpy industry, including veterinarians, physicians and naturopaths who have listened to their clients wishes. More and more people today are turning to more holistic protocols for their wellness regime. Doctors, veterinarians, hospitals and more are embracing the use of essential oils and other holistic modalities. Modalities like yoga, reiki, acupuncture, massage therapy and more to help their client achieve wellness.
What we have learned is this: YOU are in control of your health. Only YOU can make the decision for YOU. By being an educated consumer, you will empower yourself forward to positive change. Only you know your body.
Read the labels on the items you purchase for your home, your barn, your kennel, your baby's nursery. Know what they mean. Read the long list of side effects on prescriptions given to you. Don't take them lightly. If a side effect is 'death'...would you take it? Would you give it to your child? Do you have a naturopath on your health team?
The world of Essential Oils is HUGE!
