What Are Essential Oils?
The best quality essential oils are 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. When using the right brand, they are 100% natural and pure, contain no side effects and are fifty to seventy times more powerful than herbs themselves. So concentrated that one drop of peppermint essential oil is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea.
When using oils, it's incredibly important to know where the oils are coming from, and how they are extracted. Ensuring that the end product remains free from contaminants, pesticides and other chemical residue.
Our essential oil brand of preference, is doTERRA. A highly regarded company who ethically source oils that have the highest grade of potency and purity we have ever experienced.
Why Use Them?
Essential Oils provide a number of life-enhancing benefits, often used to lift mood, calm the senses and provide a number of health benefits for the body.
With Western medicine being so freely available in today's society, it's commonly forgotten that plants were and are the original source of antibacterial and antibiotic medicine. The compounds found in plants have been used for centuries to fight threats such as mold, fungus and bacteria. Alike medicine, they penetrate the cell membrane and eliminate threats in the body, without any nasty chemicals or side effects.
Whether you're interested in essential oils for aromatic reasons (stress relief, improve quality of sleep and more) or to save on trips to the doctor, essential oils help you to take control of your health and wellbeing naturally.
Whilst we still heavily believe in doctors and hospitals, we also believe that having preventative health rituals in the power of our own hands is incredibly important in daily life.
Our all time preferred supplier of essential oils, is doTERRA. A company that is dedicated to creating essential oils that are CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) approved, that are free from fillers and artificial ingredients like pesticides and chemicals.
