2. Essential oils are not going to cure you of all your ailments, make stubborn symptoms suddenly vanish, or heal away a health issue you’ve had for a really long time. BUT they can make you healthier and greatly improve the quality of your life in ways you’ve never imagined.
If you really want to experience the powerful benefits of using essential oils then you first have to practice 4 Major Mindset Shifts. Otherwise you are just blindly trading out your "Advil for peppermint essential oil," and treating your symptoms rather than the cause, and in the long run…... you won’t feel any better.
I am a huge advocate for using natural remedies. In fact, the last 9 years of my life and work is a living testament of how the power of plants can change our lives.
What I live by:
Using whole plants, along with their parts and extracts, to positively impact the health and wellbeing of our minds and bodies, is truly the only way to see real transformative results in the quality of our lives.
Redefine what being healthy means. It’s not just about being free of symptoms. Being healthy means being fully conscious that our wellbeing is a tricky balancing act, and that to maintain good health we have to work at it.
Our wellbeing is complex, multi-dimensional, and constantly ebbing and flowing. A bad night’s sleep, a day without exercising can throw us out of whack. Ask yourself: what is throwing you off? And once you identify it, reach for an essential oil to bring you back to center.
Education MattersOur sense of smell can positively impact our health. Seriously. Smelling essential oils everyday, and exercising our sense of smell can make you feel better in ways you never thought possible. Essential oils are the aromatic extracts from plants and they are made up of hundreds of aromatic molecules that have been shown to trigger responses in our brain that can literally change our physiology.
If you really want to start using essential oils to positively impact the health and wellbeing of yourself and others, you must get educated. It’s not enough to just grab a few recipes from an article you saw in an Instagram post. Essential oils are plant medicine and Aromatherapy is alternative medicine. There are many courses you can take, or if you are like me and like to pick up a book and read, there are many available on this topic. I recommend the following titles if you want to see real results.
Incorporating more plant-based practices into our diets, skincare and mental health routines are proving to be the most effective ways to keep us healthy. The evidence based research is overwhelming, and even as we speak, chemists continue to explore what nature has to offer so that new medicines and treatments can be created; Science leans heavily on nature to find the answers.
