Finally ready to put your curiosity to rest? I've raised 4 kids without the use of any pharmaceuticals! My husband was raised by a family physician and he took antibiotics often! When we got married, he'd get sooooooo sick for months at a time, but I trusted his immune system to get strong with the use of herbs and essential oils. It did, naturally, and he never takes antibiotics anymore and rarely ever gets sick. Essential oils have made this much easier. Join me for a quick overview so you can be in the know:)...
I am a mom of 4 kids who have never had to take one single dose of antibiotics or other pharmaceutical meds for sicknesses, EVER! My kids range in age from 19 down to 11. They were born at home and I had begun to learn about natural health long before they were born. I trusted in nature's remedies! My husband is the son of a doctor who grew up on antibiotics and I helped him stop relying on them at all! When we first got married, he'd get so sick for a month at a time, and I showed him how to heal his body and strengthen his immune system with herbs. I only really learned about the power of essential oils a couple of years ago and I have been blown away by what I've experienced! We have such confidence in their ability to help us avoid a cold or the flu. I've seen them stop food poisoning and digestive pain. I've watched them ease emotional as well as physical pain, help people sleep and so many more things.... These are powerful medicinals that we can easily access!
My medicine cabinet literally consists of an aloe plant, some drawing salve, colloidal silver, vitamins and minerals, elderberry syrup and essential oils. It's that simple!! (I used to use herbal cough syrup but that is no longer necessary!)
Essential oils have been getting a lot of attention in today’s search for better health and better ways to take care of our families.
People often ask me for more information about essential oils, so I decided to write an article to satisfy your curiosity!
Here are a few things I have found about essential oils (and a quick science lesson review):
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not “approve” dietary supplements or foods. They give approval for prescription and over the counter drugs. They do approve a list of ingredients called GRAS (generally recognized as safe) that are approved for use as food additives, preservatives, and cosmetics.
Many essential oils are listed on the GRAS list; however, there are many uses of essential oils outside of these parameters. Because there are no governmental bodies or organizations that approve or certify essential oil quality, it is important to find a company that provides therapeutic grade 100% pure essential oils.
My family has chosen a company that owns it's own farms around the world and is committed to a seed to seal process. This ensures that you receive the highest quality products available. This unmatched process controls every aspect of every drop of oil produced! No other company can say this. Our premium botanicals are cultivated on our own sustainable farms around the world and through very carefully chosen partner farms who employ our proprietary distilling methods and extensive testing to ensure purity, quality and properties for healing.
I have been amazed over and over again with our experiences with essential oils and if you would like more information about the oils I use, please fill out the contact form below. I will be happy to send you some more information via email.
I hope this information is helpful in your search for better ways to care for yourself and your family. We never stop learning.
Lemon is one of my go-to oils because it's inexpensive, its known to be a disinfectant, anti-tumoral, antibacterial, antiviral, liver cleansing, mood uplifting, stain removing, anti-blemish, anti-wrinkle, food flavoring, immune stimulant, amazing oil with so many uses! Did I mention it's inexpensive too?
I love adding lemon oil to my diffuser in the morning because it is very energizing and uplifting. It also is shown to disinfect the air I breathe!
I also start my day by adding a drop or two to my water. The oil is cold-pressed from the rind of the lemon and it takes 3,000 lemons to produce 1 kilo of oil, so it's highly concentrated. Lemon oil is detoxifying and contains high levels of d-limonene which is shown to be a powerful tumor inhibitor.
Lemon oil can also be used in place of Goof Off! Just rub a couple of drops where there is sap, gum, or label residue. Works like a charm!
For a simple lemonade you can combine 2 drop lemon oil, 2 TBS honey and 2 cups water, adjust amounts for your personal taste.
Always use oils in glass, not plastic containers! Do not apply citrus oils to skin that will be exposed to the sun because it may cause burning. Do not use near eyes.
Use cold mist diffuser to mist into the air to lift mood and disinfect the environment.
Apply a drop to blemishes or wrinkles as needed.
Rub on cellulite to help cellular detoxification and possible elimination of cellulite.
