A journey to clean living will always bring you into the world of essential oils. Mother Nature infused plants with the ability to heal. Essential oils are literally the plant’s life-force, it’s blood per se. This plant ‘blood’ supports our own health and wellness.
Historical use of essential oil date back over 5,000 years ago as there was Anthropological evidence that aromatic plant life used with carrier oils like sesame and olive oils created ointments!
These beautiful oils work directly with our very own cells. You can use them topically, internally, and/or aromatically.
According to her book, The Essential Oil Truth, Jen O’Sullivan, states that:
The human body is composed of around 100 trillion cells. Essential oils are composed of around 40 million trillion molecules per single drop! That is 40,000,000,000,000,000,000! Can you even fathom that number? Why and how can that many molecules fit into one single drop of essential oil? Simple: their molecules are extraordinarily small. They are all less than 300 Daltons or amu (atomic mass units) in weight.
Why this matters to us is that they are able to pass through all of our tissues and directly into our cells. The body’s transportation system is extremely effective and can transport these molecules all over the body within minutes when placed anywhere on the body. By simply placing a drop of Peppermint essential oil on the bottom of you feet, in 20 minutes your entire body will be infiltrated with 40 million trillion molecules, in effect consuming every cell in your body with 400,000 molecules. each! Astounding!
The most important thing to consider when sourcing oils is the quality! There is so much crap out there!
Adulterated and impure oils sold on store shelves and produced by questionable companies can be extremely toxic and a complete rip off! So do your research!
I researched for over 6 months! If I’m going to put these powerful liquids on and in my body… and most importantly my kids bodies, they are going to be of the most pure and high quality.
I choose Young Living. Young Living controls all of their farming and manages the entire “Seed to Seal” process. To guarantee consistent, verifiable quality, their oils are tested in Young Living’s own internal labs as well as in third-party facilities.
Their testing methods ensure the oils meet stringent specifications, exceed international standards, and contain the desired levels of bio-active compounds. They are NEVER dilute, cut or modfiy EVER.
If you are beginning your journey to essential oils, I welcome and commend you for following your heart. This is the beginning of healing and living a more holistic lifestyle and creating a non-toxic environment for your family.
You have attracted “the better way” to live life holistically. Essential oils are just more tools in your tool box!
