If you were like me, you probably thought that every bottle of essential oil was the same. I believed I could go into any store and buy an essential oil and reap the benefits. How could an essential oil be bad for me? How different can each company be? Isn’t lavender, lavender?
Venturing into a healthy lifestyle can often times be daunting, frustrating, even upsetting to have to tell the good from the bad. Many times people just give up completely. So I am here to help!
First, let me start by telling you this… not all essential oils are the same! In fact you might be buying and using ones that hold no benefits (maybe worse) and are really just a waste of money, but smell nice (that’s at least something). There are many factors to consider when purchasing and using essential oils. Considerations such as how the oils are grown, cultivated, distilled and packaged.
But why is this important? Because if you want the benefits an essential oil has to offer you don’t want it diluted in solvents or distilled to the point there is no volatile components left. For instance, an essential oil bottle can be labeled as 100% Pure and only contain 5% essential oil! And if that 5% was distilled incorrectly (for the type of plant), there could be very little beneficial constituents left in that mere 5%. So why bother huh?
But I don’t want to sit here and type out all the things you should want to look for in an essential oil, because lets face it, you wouldn’t sit at your screen and read it all. So I am going to keep this short, peak your interest, encourage you to learn more and beseech (I have never used that word in my life, why not start now) you to contact me for more information.
Let me share with you personally, my continued knowledge to start you in the right direction. I want to help you choose a brand of essential oils that will bring you all the great benefits they have to offer and to guide you through all their countless uses. I will take the confusion away and get you started.
I am beginning this conversation and I hope you will continue it with me.
