Self-Care is Self-Love Part 2: Want to know more about essential oils? Now you can!

This blog post today is about Aromatherapy and Young Living Essential Oils (the only essential oils I use) as a follow up to last week’s post.

So, what are Essential Oils (EOs)? Essential oils (EOs) are aromatic and volatile liquid that comes from inside flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. EOs are considered to be the “Lifeblood” of plants, as they carry oxygen and nutrients within the plant. EOs can be experienced in different ways.💧

To date, I have experienced, more self-care in my daily life. I am more relaxed; my sleep quality has improved; the biggest thing I love is that they are toxic free.😴

There is always a disclaimer of some sort when it comes to EOs: “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The contents of this website/e-mail are for informational purposes only and are not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Only a doctor can diagnose and treat disease. In pregnancy, many oils are contraindicated due to toxic risk; therefore, pregnant women should discuss use of essential oils with their primary care provider, certified nurse-midwife, or obstetrician. Also, in children, this can ring true as well. Please always dilute more than usual with children and check with the manufactures for guidelines on use with children and pets.” This disclaimer should be applied to all my post about EOs including this one.✋

Now, you are probably wondering why I use Young Living. Young Living takes great care to ensure that their oils are 100% pure and therapeutic grade. These are not the same kind of oils that you'll find at the health food store. Those are considered perfume grade oils.

Young Living owns thousands of acres of sustainable, organic farmland and is the world's largest producer of EOs. They have nine of their own farms all over the world; they even have a seed to seal promise. They invite all people to come work the farms and participate in the process. All of their oils are steam-distilled in stainless steel chambers at low pressure and low temperature. Young Living never uses any pesticides or GMOs. They go to every measure imaginable to ensure that their oils not only meet, but exceed quality standards.

In general, EOs are greaseless. They will evaporate if left open. Lesser quality will leave a greasy, sticky residue; meaning they were probably cut with vegetable oils or chemicals.

I use EOs daily, I practice aromatherapy. From last week’s post, Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these EOs is widely believed to stimulate brain function. I practice aromatherapy via the diffusion method. Diffusers work by breaking apart the EOs into micro molecules and then dispersing them into the air to fill your area. My next practices will include making blends, for application to my body. (I promise to keep you posted!) 👀

In the meantime, I would love for you to experience the same positive benefits as I. Trust me, you can use EOs too; it is easy. 

Do you want to feel calmer? Do you want to relax? Do you want a toxic free way to take care of yourself and your loved ones better? 

Plus, by connecting with me and starting your journey, you will be able to enjoy discounts too. I use the hashtag, #Aroma.RN #12716791 when I discuss EOs and Young Living.
