Did you know essential oils have been used for centuries for their healing properties?

When you think of essential oils, you likely conjure smells of lavender and peppermint, but their benefits go way beyond a pleasant scent.

Modern trends toward holistic approaches of self-care, and a growing scientific validation of alternative health practices are driving a rediscovery of the profound health benefits of essential oils.

One of my many passions is to educate and empower you to become a healer in your own home using essential oils.

What Are Essential Oils?

Derived from plants, essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile organic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are clean to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue.

This Is How You Can Use Essential Oils*

One of the most effective means of topical application is through the foot. The oil permeates the skin and enters the bloodstream and the effects of the oil can be seen within twenty minutes. (It is important to dilute the oil before using it, especially topically, and never use it on broken skin.) Another way to get the benefits of the oils is to use them with a diffuser.

*NOTE: If you are pregnant, planning to get pregnant, or breastfeeding, consult your physician before using any essential oil.

This Is How Others Use Essential Oils

When my overseas business trip was just one week away, my husband came down with a major cold, and successfully treated it with Melalucca, Oregano, and On Guard essential oils. I took mini vials and pre-made capsules in my carry-on, so that when the virus hit me, which it did, I could function despite an intense schedule, jet lag, and little sleep!

Since before his first birthday, my son has had breathing and asthma issues. Nebulizers, medicines, and hospital visits became the norm for us, especially around seasonal weather changes. After having struggled with these issues for YEARS, I talked to Leslie and took her advice. Her suggestion included using the ‘Breathe’ oil on his feet and chest. I don’t have words powerful enough to describe the change in him. We haven’t used a nebulizer yet this season, and we have NEVER made it this far into the Fall season without doing so. He asks for [Breathe oil] every night and that’s SO much more pleasant than trying to force medicine or a breathing treatment on him. It’s made my life so much easier. I could not be more enthusiastically pleased with this product and with Leslie, for knowing how to help me.
