Will Essential Oils Work for Me?
Do essential oils really work? Whenever we’re thinking about putting something on or in our bodies, it’s always a good idea to be skeptical and check out all the ingredients and available facts. Sadly enough, there are a lot of scams out there and some of them are harmful.
Before we had giant pharmaceutical companies producing all kinds of medicines (and the Food and Drug Administration regulating them), people used medicines directly extracted from plants and other natural resources to help fight infection and illness, and to promote better health. Unfortunately, some people also grossly oversold “miracle cures” or peddled products with blatantly misleading or incorrect labels.
As with all the things I put on my skin or in my body, I did my research and consulted with wise people I trust to ensure I get the high-quality products I pay for. I’ve done a lot of research to make sure I’m confident in the quality of essential the oils I use.
As for the effectiveness of the oils, I personally don’t think essential oils should ever take the place of a healthy diet, but I think well-made oils from a reputable source can help aid the body in recovery and promote better health. I’ve learned ways they can be used in combination with the right diet to help treat acute conditions like occasional headaches, skin irritations, respiratory issues, occasional indigestion, and to reduce anxious feelings. They can also provide healthy cell support, thyroid support, circulation support, help reduce inflammation and much, much more!
It’s been a priority of mine to create my own all-natural first aid kit for my family and I’ve found that essential oils can be a wonderful addition.
