Incorporating essential oils into my lifestyle is the most natural transition I have ever made. As soon as I was introduced to them I knew it was something that I had been waiting for. It's like I just knew it was for me and that I would never look back. I now use them in every single aspect of my life and have so much gratitude and appreciation for something I used to think of as just stuff that you put in a bath or burned to make a room smell nice. Now, I can't imagine life without these little bottles by my side and I will tell you why...
I have been encapsulated by the pharmaceutical industry for most of my life relying on drugs to assist not only physically but with my emotional stability too that resulted in a seizure a few years ago ago which was apparently a side affect of an antidepressant I was prescribed. We truly do not know what we are putting in our bodies or how it will affect us short and long term. This is why I have chosen these natural solutions as a lifestyle and I am so excited to be on this new journey and able to share this with you all.
The versatility of these particular oils (doTERRA) are endless and you can become as creative as you want by adding them to your cooking as the oils I choose to work with are pure enough to ingest (only certain oils are safe for ingesting no matter how pure though), making your own beauty products, massage oils, hygiene regimes (eg. DIY toothpastes, deodorants etc.) and even replacing household cleaning agents. My main focus however, is to support my mood by ingesting, inhaling and topically applying specific oils eg. Lavender (probably the most well known oil) assists with anxiety and relaxation so I smother my pillow in it, wear it as perfume, put it on burns or wounds to heal, put in in my bath for the ultimate relaxation experience, drink it as a tea with honey and lemon or just have a quick whiff if I'm feeling nervous to calm my farm. That's just one oil in particular.
Not only have I found a new way of approaching my mental and physical health from a natural, non toxic approach I have also found "my tribe". A community of powerful, beautiful and supportive souls (the team that I work with for doTERRA) that I have considered family from the moment I met them. This journey and the amazing people I have met (and have the opportunity to continue to meet whilst sharing these pots of smelly goodness) has given me a whole new outlook and appreciation for not only natural and holistic therapy and treatment but has allowed me a sense of belonging and oneness which to me is priceless seeing as I have felt ostracised and that of an outcast my entire life. This line of work is not what I consider "work" or "business" but it is as much a part of me as my arm or leg. It's ingrained in me, I am so passionate about being able to share this from my heart because I know how much of a huge difference it has made in my life compared to how helpless and powerless I felt swallowing pills each day to get by. I only wish I grew up with the knowledge I am just starting to gain now!
What are essential oils?
If you are anything like me you before I was introduced to the oils you may think that aromatherapy is just a load of fluffy, hippy crap.
An essential oil is an aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications inclusion in aromatherapy – using these compounds from plants to help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. The type of volatile aromatic compounds present in an essential oil determines both the oil’s aroma and the benefits it offers.
