So, Last week I talked about Essential Oils on the blog, in a post about how I treat my Anxiety … and I had a ton of questions from you guys about, well, “what are essential oils?” and “How do I use them?” So Let’s talk a little bit about the awesome amazing healing powers of Essential Oils and how I got hooked.
Essential oils are made by distilling natural plant based products and extracting the purest highest quality of oil from those plants. There are a ton of ways to do it, and based on the plant product, there are a variety of ways to extract oils, but this isn’t a science lesson post. Essential oils (when you select the right plant based material for your needs) can offer number of healing benefits: they can help heal your skin, they can help you sleep, help aid digestion — they are basically an additional tool for solving life problems in an organic healthy way. You can check out NAHA for more info on Aromatherapy and the natural healing powers of essential oils if you want to know more.
How do You Use Essential Oils
There are a number of ways to use essential oils. If you have high quality pure organic oils like Young Living Sells, you can use essential oils in a diffuser which secretes the healing scents in to the air, you can apply them topically directly on the skin, or you can even ingest them.
I use Lavendar in my Diffuser at bedtime to help me sleep
I use Frankenssense oil during meditation
I use Lemon Citrus oils to feel bright and energized and make my bedroom smell fresh and spring-timey.
I use peppermint when I am feeling sick to decongest my sinuses.
The list goes on and on.
There are so many oil brands out there lately.. Different products, different diffusers, different brands. Sorting out the pros and cons of what products are best for you can get super overwhelming. But trust me when I say this: Young Living Hands down is by far the best product out there.
Go to whole foods to buy your oils? Stop. I used to buy my oils from whole foods.. until I found out that the products I was spending 13 bucks a piece on were actually just synethic perfumes. Why is that a problem? 100 Percent Therapeutic grade essential oils have amazing healing properties that perfume just doesn’t have. If you are looking to feel calm and relaxed before bedtime, a lavender oil made in factory will not give you the amazing effects that 100 percent pure lavender oil will. Not to mention applying oils topically or ingesting them when they aren’t 100 percent therapeutic grade oils is extremely dangerous.
But guess what – Young Living Essential Oils ARE!
