This week, Scented Balance Aromatherapy celebrates 8 years in business. Yay!
I haven’t been a certified aromatherapist quite that long (6 years now), but the journey has been amazing because I know deep down why essential oils matter. You see, for a number of years, I had no health insurance and couldn’t afford to have regular medical care. When faced with health concerns, I really had nowhere to turn.
Digging for information on my own and then having to figure out what was actually happening was very frustrating. And of course, I had to sift through several doctors who told me I was just fine but most likely “just depressed.” Really?
That’s when I began to explore the world of complementary and alternative health care.
Why Essential Oils Matter
I’m pretty sure everyone knows we have a ridiculously expensive and broken health care system. One that feeds us toxic pills, creams and shots and gawd knows what else in the name of making money.
If you don’t already know it, then I will say it loud and clear. Anytime you take a toxic chemical, you have to heal twice. Once from the health concern and the second time from the toxic medication.
Somewhere along the line, we’re ignoring the messages and signals that our bodies give us all the time. By ignoring those messages also known as symptoms, we run the risk of becoming very ill.
By paying attention to messages such as aches and pains, indigestion, headaches, eczema flareups, depression and anxiety, there’s a good chance you can get ahead of life’s everyday wellness issues before they become catastrophic.
Yes, I know. We’re busy. We have jobs, dishes, kids with homework and practice, things to do, places to go and people to meet. Oh and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to navigate.
I get it.
And that’s why essential oils matter.
Listen, these wonderful bottles of nature’s goodness are not miracle cures. There are no miracle cures. For anything.
What pure essential oils do offer is an alternative to some of the toxic chemicals out there that are being prescribed by the millions. Again, they don’t cure – they are tools to help your body find its balance.
And that’s exactly what all those prescriptions are meant to do – they are tools to help your body find its balance. But when your body doesn’t recognize the chemical that’s been introduced, you start getting side effects which causes another set of issues.
Look, yes we do need doctors. Yes, we do need the expensive and broken healthcare system with those pills and creams and shots.
Because sometimes, you need that stuff.
But there are alternatives and that’s why essential oils matter.
One particular doctor that I saw for years put it like this:
“Those pills and creams and shots are out there for a reason and we may need to go that route. But I’m willing to think outside the box and recommend a natural and holistic plan first. Then, if (and only if) that doesn’t work, we resort to the other stuff.”
I’m 65 – and I don’t mind admitting my age. I’m in good shape because I’m paying attention. I’m now on Medicare and have the ability to get regular medical care. I’m even scheduled for my first colonoscopy in 12 years. Snort…yay…that’s something ya gotta do!
All that said, I manage my health with pure essential oils, herbs, botannicals, teas and tinctures. I’ve managed to wean myself off of the last prescription I’ve taken for 15 years.
Because I know that no one is in charge of my health except me. No one is in charge of your health except for you.
Ignore your good health at your own peril. It’s precious and won’t last forever. In the meantime, you can enhance your body, mind and spirit (and protect your liver) by choosing something besides synthetic (and toxic) chemicals.
Y’all know I’m NOT a doctor, but I don’t want to see you go through the heartache and frustration that I did because doctors don’t necessarily listen. I listen and hear you in a safe and sacred space. Whether it’s in my physical shop or zoom or email – I listen and do my best to help. And that may mean you need to see a doctor.
Thank you for letting me get this off my chest and explain why I’m so passionate about pure essential oils and all the good they do. I’d love to help you take charge of your own wellbeing and it’s a whole lot easier than you think.
