I know you have been hearing a lot about essential oils these days. They are everywhere. But what are they exactly and why can they be powerful tools to add to your family’s lifestyle, to help support your mind, body and home. What’s all the fuss?
Essential oils are the highly concentrated, aromatic essences of trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, resins and flowers. Essential oils are greaseless and not like the other ‘oils’ you have in your home like olive oil or coconut oil for example.
Essential oils act as the plant’s natural defense and protective mechanisms. Essential oils can consist of hundreds of different and unique chemical compounds. They are far more potent than dried herbs because the distillation process makes them so concentrated.
Plant extracts and essential oils have been used by man throughout time for both physical and spiritual support.
Pure essential oils can be used as tools to support your various body systems, to replace toxic synthetic fragrance, to help with sleep, stress and focus and so much more.
I love having these potent tools in my healthy lifestyle toolkit. They give me one more way to support my family’s mind, body and home…naturally.
