Essential oils...you hear about them all the time right? Next big craze! You see people online selling them, you see them in lotions, sprays...even in Walmart! So what's the big deal?!
Well friends, let me just give you a few inside bits about these 'magical' oils that seem to have taken the world by storm!
Essential oils have been around as far back as the B.C. era! Once referred to as aromatics, they've really been around for years and we've just chosen to let them be skimmed over. Now they are resurfacing again, but many cultures have continued using oils all along, we're just starting to see the true benefits become popular again.
I know what you're thinking, there's a reason they faded away, there must have been something better that took their place. There is a reason they were thrown on the back burner. Maybe um....medicine?! Correct! Medicine did come along and was much better or quicker at treating pain or preventing disease. But at what cost?
Did you know that at one time, not too long ago, well into the early 1900's, doctors would recommend giving children heroin as a cough suppressant?! Now, today we'd be thrown in jail for that! My point is, as medicine and technology grew, they found cures, treatments, advancements...but with it came risks, some that were later found to be worse that the initial ailment and could even cause death!
Don't get me wrong here, I'm a nurse and great lover of science and technology and everything progressive! But, my years in healthcare has led me down this path to finding other, more natural alternatives. I have literally watched people receive medication to kill their cancer, have it cured...to only die 3 months later from heart failure because that chemo was cardio-toxic. But hey, the doc's cured the lung cancer! This is just an example. You may think I'm being extreme or that is a rare occurrence, but I can tell you in just one year on a medical floor, in a rather small hospital, this happened more than I can county on one hand. So, not as 'extreme' as you may think. My point here is that medicine is amazing, but has a time and a place. We need to open our minds to every possible way to keep our bodies and our families healthy and realize we don't just have to take what the doc says to the bank! More times than not it pays to do some of your own research.
For me and my family, this is where essential oils has come in to play. Oils can literally be used for everything if you give it a chance to work. The most popular uses in our home are for headaches, cold symptoms & prevention, stress reduction and sleep! I'll explore specifics more later, but feel free to ask questions below!
Give them a try, I'm even willing to send you a sample if you message me. I promise you that you will see a difference. This is more than just a MLM market, a money making scheme, the next big craze... these oils can do amazing things and can aid in improving you & your families lives and health!
