Essential Oils for Wellness and Well Being

Essential Oils

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination.

Essential oils can be an integral and beneficial part of any lifestyle. Essential oils can help with a number of health problems, then help you maintain the wellness you have found. There are a few things that drew me to essential oils:
  • They are natural. There are no chemicals. For those trying to live a more natural lifsteyle they fit in perfectly. They have few if any side effects when used following their very simple directions.
  • Essential Oils are easy to use. Many oils do many different things, you can try things and see what you prefer.  If you follow a few simple things like keeping them out of your eyes and ears and use them as directed they are safe for everyone in the family. Essentials oils do not interact with other drugs, you can use them without waiting between different oils, and do not have to worry about taking with food or avoiding certain foods. For anyone who has been or is on prescription medication you know how complicated that can become.
  • So many uses. Oils are used for physical and emotional wellbeing. They can be used as cleaning products, personal care products, and in food. All without the worry of chemicals, interactions, and residual junk.
