My Journey with Essential Oils
My family and I have totally had our lives transformed by the use of essential oils. I cannot begin to describe the relief that I feel having something safe, natural and powerfully effective on hand when someone in my family is not feeling well. Keeping our little people happy and healthy is our main priority as parents and these beautiful gifts of nature make this oh so much easier! I really didn’t expect to fall in love with these oils the way I have. I began using them to help me manage my anxious feelings and support my sleep – I have since discovered that they are not only great for that, but for so much more. I now use about 20 different oils every single day – they truly are amazing!
Essential oils are aromatic compounds extracted from plants. They make up the plants natural defence system and they are powerful, potent and effective. You can use essential oils to support you with a variety of things. Some of the ways we use essential oils in our home include:
- Soothing anxious feelings
- Supporting sleep
- Improving mood
- Skin support (irritations, itchiness, bug bites and stings)
- Relieving aches and pains
- Digestive support and easing upset tummies
- Respiratory Support
- Immune Support
- Cleansing and purifying
We have also replaced a lot of other items in our house with natural products that contain essential oils – things like household cleaners, soap and skin care. This is reducing our toxic load and the amount of chemicals we are exposing ourselves to on a daily basis.
It is important to know that not all essential oils are created equal. We have chosen the oils we use as we believe they are the purest oils on the planet. I take my health and wellness seriously and that of my family. It is important for me to trust that the oils I have chosen for me, my husband and my children are of the highest possible quality and are free of chemicals, pesticides and other nasties. With this in mind I choose doTERRA essential oils. They set the bar for purity and potency and I love knowing that thanks to their stringent testing procedures I will get the same quality in every drop! It’s like having a beautiful oily medicine cabinet at your disposal. Here is a video that explains the quality probably better than I can:
