I think sometimes one of the biggest things that people fear about making healthy switches for their lifestyle is that they simply aren’t “natural” enough to make any changes. People fear that because they’re not some tree hugging hippie with a pocket full of oils and a satchel of lavender with them, that they can’t begin a healthier lifestyle.
Dude, that is so wrong.
I’m here to tell you friends that beginning a journey with essential oils and/or non toxic products isn’t about being the biggest hippie or some natural guru. It’s not about knowing and doing all the things. It’s not about some perfect, kale eating lifestyle. It’s just simply not all of those things.
Many people that I know have used essential oils for either a portal to a more natural lifestyle or simply just because they were intrigued by them and wanted to give them a shot. For some people, they get a starter kit of oils and begin using the heck out of them and slowly start switching their hygiene and cleaning products to more natural options. For others, they don’t really have much interest in doing those things, but they love the aromas of the oils in their home.
With a new year approaching, I encourage you to consider what sort of healthy, smaller change you can make for your home. Not just yourself and your personal goals, but a healthy change for your family as well. You see, something as simple as getting rid of plug ins and candles and replacing it with 100% pure essential oils can actually help children out drastically. You’ll likely notice a difference if anyone in your home typically suffered with asthma or allergies. You’ll decrease their toxic chemical exposure drastically because candles and plug ins are the biggest and most toxic air pollutants in the home.
Using oils to purify and freshen up your home naturally is the first step to a wonderful and healthy new year. Even if it’s the only step you make with your oils, it’s a dang good step.
Fear of the unknown can definitely be tricky. People look at essential oils and hear videos and read posts and still assume that these foreign bottles will always be just that…foreign. But as I’ve seen over and over again, the ones who jump in and ask ALL the questions, are the ones who quickly gain confidence with their oils AND who uses them well beyond just diffusing them. They are the ones who quickly begin helping others in our private groups. How amazing?!
An organic and all natural lifestyle sometimes just isn’t for everyone. But essential oils - they can totally be for everyone. Everyone loves things that smell great; everyone loves something to ease muscles and aches; everyone loves good sleep and happy emotions. And everyone WANTS to be healthy and not constantly on that sick train.
So friends, I hope you give these gems a try one day. Today may not be your day, and that is okay. But one day when you’re tired of the constant sick days, tired of the allergies or just wanting to cover up that pet smell, you’ll be ready. And you can jump right in and we’ll help you discover all that these beautiful bottles can offer for you and your family.
And maybe, just maybe…you’ll discover a whole new lifestyle of health and wellness. Heck, you may even hug a tree one day to thank it for all that it has done for you.
