Essential Oils As A Self-Care Revolution

We’re  living in the midst of a revolution, one that pertains to our well-being. It is evident that humanity has not been living in harmony with nature for the past 200 hundred+ years, especially since the onset of the industrial revolution. We can see the expression of this in our ecological and societal state, in which millions of people and animals suffer with unfulfilled needs everyday.

Amidst this we have a saving grace, Mother Nature.

Mother Nature, also known as Pachamama in the Andean tradition, is masterful and benevolent. She has always held gifts and sophisticated solutions for each of us embedded within her leaves, flowers, and roots. Humanity has collaborated with plants for thousands of years for the vitality of their family and villages, well before modern day manufacturing existed. One of the most revered therapeutic modalities throughout ancient history is the usage of Essential Oils.

Here’s why the essences of Mother Nature are currently on the frontline of a health care phenomenon. Join the wellness revolution!

What are essential oils?

Have you ever walked through a lavender or rose field and enjoyed that uplifting floral aroma? Or peeled an orange and felt refreshed by its fragrance? This is the splendor of the aromatic qualities found in essential oils, yet aromatherapy is simply just the beginning of their magic. Essential oils are aromatic compounds extracted and distilled from various aspects of plants, providing innumerable therapeutic benefits. They are the immune system of Mother Nature. Just as they help the plant and flower kingdom defend against environmental threats, they offer these same protective benefits to human physiology. The compounds found within one drop of essential oil are complex and potent, helping the body to address root issues on a cellular level. The essence of a plant works with the essence of our health, it is simple.

Why use them?

Because there is an oil for everything… from skinned knees, to sleep restlessness, to oral care! They are 50-70 times stronger than herbs even! It is truly in the best interest of our collective environment for us all to learn how to work with the natural world. As a community we are suffering from toxic overload in our water, soil, and air. Now is the moment to begin educating ourselves on how we can improve our vitality, immunity, and beauty in a pure and clean way. Essential Oils are actually the power within most of our household products; house cleaners, air fresheners, lotions, deodorants, etc. Imagine having the ability to clean and uplift yourself and your home with your very own ‘Do It Yourself’ creations. Millions of homes today are converting their bathroom cabinets with these plant essences to restore their personal well-being and that of their loved ones, so join the Revolution!

What should I look for in an essential oil line?

Purity is important! There are currently varying grades of essential oils in the world market. There are toxic grades, containing fillers and residue pesticides and chemicals, which are harmful for our bodies. Hence, it is highly recommended to only work with a 100% pure grade of essential oil that is safe to use topically, aromatically, as well as internally. Here is the essential oil line that I recommend and work with exclusively. Do your research before buying essential oils and try them out to see how they affect your body-mind!
