**THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT**
If you live in the northeast USA in January and February, you need to read on...
I wanted to capture a bit of this reality (though, I couldn't even do it justice before my phone died in the cold.) This is FULL COLOR life, right here.
And if this is the most color you’re getting these days, you need some essential oils in your life. It’s not optional. I’ll tell you why:
1) You need the power of beautiful plants. Essential oils are aromatic molecules that consist of 100’s of natural chemical compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. When things get this desolate, you need to call on the wisdom of the plant kingdom.
2) Essential oils are the plants defense system, they can be yours, too. The same powerful properties that protect plants from outside threats can work naturally to support your immune system, too. It works, I’m telling you. As a mom of 6, we’ve only had to resort to antibiotics for illness about 4 times in 24 years. (And we were grateful to have them! But when it’s safe, we try to use more natural solutions first.)
3) Weather like this can get you DOWN.
This is no joke. Our emotions influence every part of our well-being, including our physical health. Essential oils are one of the most effective and simple tools you can add for emotional health. Here’s my scientific breakdown:
You sniff> your olfactory nerves are activated and send messages to> your limbic system (your emotional brain)> you get an emotional response.
you use your essential oils to elicit the response you want.
So cool, right?
Why would you not have these tools in your life?
4) And most importantly, having oils in your home just makes life BETTER. It's so awesome to have natural solutions right at your fingertips for 80% of your basic healthcare needs, or to instantly shift a mood or cleanse the air.
And it's FUN! Learning how the oils work and choosing and combining the right ones based on their chemistry and qualities...it's a craft and an art form, but one that can be easily learned with practice (plus, I work with an amazing group of supportive people that all love their oils and are more than ready to support and help. doTERRA is a community!
And there are so many resources...use that BRAIN, people! Use it, or lose it, as they say...)
***But here's an important caveat: quality matters. ***
With their growing popularity, you can grab an essential oil at any gas station on the corner nowadays.
But the quality of an essential oil plays a major part in whether or not the oil will have the beneficial effects I’m talking about. Making a truly pure essential oil is very costly, this is why many companies must add fillers or synthetics to their oils.
And because the FDA does not regulate the industry, companies can make any claims they want. (Yikes! More on that here.) You need to know where your essential oils are coming from!
So, if you’d like to explore the benefits of essential oils, I recommend you work with someone who knows what they are talking about, like...um...ME!
And take care of yourself out there!! BRRRR!!!!
