The healing essence of nature
in a bottle
Plants, flowers, barks and roots have healing properties that we can take in through all of our senses.
Did you know that pharmaceuticals are nothing but a specific mixture of synthetically reproduced elements found in nature? So why don't we embrace the healing power of plants in our day-to-day lives and instead depend on others to fix our wellbeing?
I was absolutely surprised to find out about the potency of one little drop of a high-quality, therapeutic grade essentail oil. As complimentary therapy, oils can support us plentiful on our holistic healing journeys.
Read on to find out how!
Essential Oils ...
can be taking in through absorbtion of our skin by adding them to our baths, cremes or directly onto our skin, through ingestion by adding them to our water or food and, last but definitely not least, by smelling.
The interesting part is, that our sense of smell is directly connected to our brain, or to be more specific, to our limbic brain. Also called "the reptilian brain", it's responsible for our emotions, memories or insticts. Further, the limbic system communicates with our autonomic nervous system, which in turn is responsible for our heartbeat & blood pressure, with our endocrine system, which produces & regulates our hormones, and our gut.
Taking into account how many of us are suffering from constant stress, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues or even cardiovascular diseases, pure, therapeutic grade essential oils are a great, natural and holistic support for our society.
Each plant, flower or root has a variety of different qualities and healing properties. Therefore, while for example inhaling an oil with the intention of reducing stress, the oil is also communicating with and supporting a plethora of other systems at the very same time.
•••Why quality matters •••
If you imagine that only one drop of lemon essential oils contains the power of 5 lemons, you can guess how elaborate & also expensive the production of essential oils actually is.
To limit costs and efforts, there are many producers who are adding components like alcohol or other fillers into their oils.
Do you want the real deal, a product you can trust, or do you want something that is highly dilluted and may even contain harmful substances?
Next to our own health, we need to note that the production of essential oils has a huuuge impact on the health of our planet: agriculture needs to be ethical, sustainable and organic.
This is why I'd strongly recommend you to only choose high quality, therapeutical grade essential oils, where you exactly know that the frequency of the product matches your standards.
