Let’s face it, essential oils are everywhere! Let’s talk!So you’ve seen those tiny little bottles everyone is raving about and you are wondering what the fuss is all about?
I will tell you!!
In fact, I am thrilled to share with you! So buckle-up my friend here begins the first day of the rest of your oil-loving life!
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the ‘life blood’ of a living leaf, plant, flower, shrub, tree, resin etc. The oil is typically steam distilled from the harvested plant. Although most of the world think of them as ‘spa smell-goods’, high-quality essential oils can be used for much more than aromatherapy.
Because of their ability to support the body naturally, they are widely used in hospitals Europe! Isn’t that amazing?! But that is a topic for another day!
For the sake of legal issues and such, I will try to keep my comments compliant, but know that I am holding back knowledge that I would love to share! If you are willing to dig deeper and think outside the box, I strongly encourage you to do so!
EO’s aren’t a Trend
Essential Oils have never been more popular or widely used than they are today, but that doesn’t mean they are a trend! In fact, the use of essential oils dates back to biblical times! EO’s have been used for hundreds of years and have now been scientifically proven to work!
Young people are increasingly becoming health-conscious. As a result, essential oils have started to come into play more and more.
I grew up with a few ‘health food store’ essential oils in our home, but we weren’t even sure what to do with them. The resources available today are limitless. I can google anything I want to know about and usually find an answer withing seconds.
And so it goes for essential oils. People are sharing different ways to use EO’s and others are finding those tips and tricks to try for themselves. The online network is incredible!
Real Life ‘Magic Potions’
These tiny bottles are powerful and ready to be unleashed!
Did you know you can give your medicine cabinet a complete make-over with essential oils? Well, you can! And the best part is that essential oils work with your body, and not against it like drugs.
You can use essential oils to address the root of the problem, whereas drugs that are hard on your organs and come with icky side-effects just deal with your symptoms. (I’m not saying that there aren’t proper times and places for pharmaceuticals, there are, I have personally used them. I am grateful that I don’t have to resort to drugs for every little thing.)
We use herbal teas, supplements, and essential oils for most of our day-to-day ‘struggles’. A few examples are clearing nasal passages, relaxing for better rest, frazzled nerves, and the common bugs that go around seasonally.
I personally believe that essential oils were sent from God above to provide relief and support to us! They absolutely work for me and my family! We LOVE having healthy choices and not having to go to the doctor for every tiny little sniffle!
It makes me quite frustrated that I have to be careful not to step on the FDA’s toes when I share about essential oils. I want to have to freedom to speak what I know and love so that I can help others mommas do what I am doing!
Not all Essential Oils are Created Equally
My family uses Young Living essential oils because I have found them to be the highest quality, not adulterated with fragrances like knock-offs are. The quality is so great in fact, that I am using far less than I was with the knock-off oils. So it’s a win, win!

If you want an all-in-one resource to answer pretty much anything you could ever want to know about essential oils, Get yourself an Essential Oils Pocket Reference by Life Science Publishing. It is an awesome book packed with so much information about essential oils and how to use them! I open it up whenever I have a question. In fact, much of the information I share about essential oils was found in that crazy, cool book!

Not an Edible Wrap, Unfortunately, but the kind of wrap says, “this post is coming to an end”! And now I’m hungry.

Okay, I’m not a witch-doctor, in fact, I am not a doctor at all.
I want to be clear that I have no intention to diagnose prescribe, treat, cure, prevent any illness or disease.
I am a mom that has found tricks that work to support my family’s health naturally and I love sharing what I learn.
