PicMonkey Collage

EO's aka Essential Oils have had a M A J O R impact on my life, health & healing Journey. Not only did I use them to heal my Lymes Disease, but have continued to incorporate them into my every day life. If you've never used them before, I can't even explain HOW powerful they are. I believe they have the power to HEAL a person from any and all ailments.

I could wax poet about their miracle properties, and will continue to sing their praises!

Below are some of the basics that I believe everyone should have in their home! I used Frankincense and Clove extensively while healing, and ingested them daily (*DISCLAIMER - I used // use DOTERRA which are the ONLY essential oils, besides Young Living that you can ingest. They are triple certified and therapeutic, and can only be ingested when given the OK (it will say on the website and bottle)).

Lavender:

This is the Swiss Army knife of EOs. Heals burns, cuts, relieve insomnia, reduces stress, a powerful antihistamine, bug bites, bruises, sleep deprivation, inflammation, sunburn, lice.

The Final Word

Many practitioners of alternative medicine are now encouraging the use of essential oils for minor ailments such as wounds, insect bites, nausea, headaches, digestive disorders and more. This is not hocus pocus!!! We are talking about the use of pure essential oils from plants and flowers that adapt to nature organically. It is our opinion that essential oils will become an important line of defense that will insure our health and well-being over the long term. . . remember that ALL pharmaceuticals originally come from these exact herbs and plants. They are just processed and manipulated to the e x t r e m e.

A wonderful tidbit about EOs is that they don’t contain ANY fatty acids that can turn rancid or mold AND the environment of a pure EO is too tough for bacteria to grow in. Most essential oils will outlive you and I. There is no shelf life for pure plant essence with the exception of citrus EOs which should be replaced annually. This is a very special benefit and, an economical one!

When you invest in PURE essential oils you’re providing yourSELF security and empowerment knowing that you can take care of most health needs efficiently, without side effects!

I h o n e s t l y don't know what I would do without them! They will be in my life and my families lives forever. I just picture my kids having minor cuts, scrapes, colds, etc . . . and the only things I will use is EO (!) Pure healing energy from the inside out. Hello Hippy Mama! :)

What are your favorite essential oils?

love & light
