There are so many reasons to consider essential oils for yourself and for your family. Some people seem to think that in order to use essential oils you must be a completely organic type of person. Others think that in order to use essential oils that you must KNOW how to use them.
Using essential oils can be scary at first but it’s so rewarding in the long run. While there’s a bit to learn, it really all comes so easily and with the right people around you, you’ll have all the help you need when it comes to using your oils.
Here are some simple and straight forward (and fun!) reasons to use essential oils!
To replace your candles and plug ins. Let’s face it…most people get essential oils because they know or read that candles and plug ins are pretty horrible for our health. So, they purchase a starter kit of oils and a diffuser so they can have some beautiful smells in their home without all of the toxins that they read about. In other words, they make your home smell amazing!
For the athletes, active people or achy people. Unfortunately some people have to turn to over the counter things to help alleviate muscle aches and regular pain or head tension. With essential oils, you can help support your body and all of the aches and pains with oils. Just apply topically (some oils we recommend diluting) and you’ll feel wonderful!
For sleep. Because everyone needs sleep! This is actually a huge response that I receive from many of the people who begin with essential oils; their sleep improves! Suddenly they are sleeping better and more sound or their children are sleeping better. There are many oils around that can help with sleep!
To help keep your emotions in check. We all know of many people who need support for their emotions, anxiousness and bluesy days. Essential oils work with the limbic system of our brain to help us release trauma and trigger a certain emotional response. It’s basic science. Once your body is affected by a particular essential oil, your emotions respond in the positive way that you need.
To help your skin. Ever had some weird skin issues that you couldn’t seem to find a solution for? Or maybe you want to make your own homemade products so you can be in control of what goes on your skin! Essential oils are excellent for skin issues, owies and much more. You can make your own products scented with oils while also receiving the therapeutic benefits of the oils for your skin!
For health and wellness. This is HUGE. So many people are tired of that constant train of germs, runny noses, missed days of work and days confined to the sofa. Thankfully essential oils not only support our immune systems when we need them, but can also support our immune systems by taking preventative action. By using oils daily, you can help yourself and your family stay healthier!
For cleansing. Whether it’s the air that needs purifying or your body that needs a gentle cleansing, there are oils that target all of those things. Diffuse a basic oil to cleanse your air or add Lemon Vitality oil to your water to cleanse your body. Even Lavender can be cleansing to the skin for kid’s booboos and such. Essential oils are also excellent at CLEANING naturally and replacing other cleaners within the home.
For all the body things. Digestive issues, respiratory health, circulatory health, tummy aches, etc… oils are there for you through it all. So often I’ll receive a message an about an oil helping someone’s stomach troubles or an oil that helped one breathe better! It’s amazing what nature can do!
There are countless other ways that you can use oils in your life. It’s a new year and you have the opportunity to start fresh and on a clean slate. You have the chance to say yes to something that is GOOD for you, your children and your family. You have the ability to take control of your health and wellness this year!
You don’t have to be some tree hugging hippie. You don’t have to be a scientist. You don’t have to sip Green Tea all day or whatever other thing you associate oils with. You just have to be a person willing to take charge of their health!
