Wow – life seems hard right now, doesn’t it? So much going on to throw us off kilter. I’d like to share 5 advantages of aromatherapy especially during the adventure we’re living in!
Pure essential oils (that’s all I use) make real physiological changes when you use them. That’s a fancy way of saying that pure essential oils can ease such concerns as pain, anxiety and indigestion without the toxic side effects of over the counter drugs.
Advantage #1 – Pure Essential Oils Come From The Earth.
Aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years. Nothing that came from the earth was wasted: plants, fruit, flowers, trees, roots – everything was used for daily living.
Your body knows, accepts and processes food, beverages and medicine that comes from the earth.
What does that mean for you?
It means that pure essential oils work hard in your body without any toxic load to your liver, kidneys and other organs.
Ever been wound up like a top and use Lavender? It calms you without introducing any negative side effects. Can’t wash your hands right this minute? Lavender is an effective antibacterial to help kill germs until you can get to soap and water.
Advantage # 2 – Pure Essential Oils Are Easy To Use.
Not everyone can take pills. Aspirin can tear up your stomach; taking a liquid for nausea or heartburn might make your situation even worse. Simply applying diluted Peppermint to your belly can calm a queasy stomach.
Got a sick headache? A pill may come right back up, but applying Lavender and Peppermint to your head and stomach can ease not only your headache but your upset stomach.
If you’ve ever have food poisoning, nothing stays down. Applying a combination of diluted essential oils to your stomach helps you feel much better because it gets right into your system through your skin – quickly.
Advantage # 3 – Aromatherapy Is Complementary To Traditional Healthcare.
Up until the mid twentieth century, pure essential oils and botanicals were medicine. Ever watch an old TV show where a medicine woman made a potion for someone sick? And they got better?
I work with cancer patients who have burning skin, nausea, aches and pains and aromatherapy helps them through some pretty tough times and doesn’t interfere with their treatment.
Does your arthritis or chronic pain feel worse some days more than others? Flexatoid Blend for Arthritis helps ease the pain and works with your medication. Apply it where it hurts to ease pain – no pills to take.
Advantage # 4 – Aromatherapy Can Ease Stress And Anxiety
This is a big one. Stress and anxiety run rampant in our daily lives – especially with a pandemic wreaking havoc.
One of the best known uses for pure essential oils is the ability to reduce emotional stress and anxiety. Many oils calm, balance and relax and some have a mild sedative effect which is good at bedtime.
Some of the best essential oils for stress and anxiety are Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Orange and Vetiver.
One of my best selling products is Anxiety Ease Synergy Blend Roll On. I created it for a case study for a client who had constant anxiety attacks. Here is the case study – that client still uses Anxiety Ease today.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric illnesses affecting children and adults. An estimated 40 million American adults suffer from anxiety disorders.
Advantage # 5 – Aromatherapy Can Help With Many Common Health Concerns
Considered an alternative form of medicine, (although it shouldn’t be – it’s REAL medicine) Aromatherapy can help you feel better without causing all the nasty side effects. Here’s just a few concerns that pure essential oils help:
- Digestive issues such as IBS and heartburn
- Skin disorders such as eczema and psorasis
- Headaches and migraines
- Sinus and allergies
- Menopause symptoms
- Chronic pain
- Mild depression
- Emotional healing
- Burns, cuts and ouchies
- Bad breath
That’s quite a list of health issues and that’s not all of them! Not every upset stomach or pain needs a doctor’s visit. Aromatherapy can help you make much wiser heath care choices without the threat of toxic side effects.
Gotta tell you the truth – I’ve struggled over the last couple of months. I’ve had bouts of mild depression, headaches, feeling VERY anxious and not sleeping well. Yes, I use a handful of my own products every single day.
Because they help me decrease my stress, improve my mood, enhance my immune system, clean my apartment and simply make life smell better. I absolutely love them and know their power.
I have so many products that can help you live a more graceful life.
