What’s the Big Deal About Essential Oils?

What’s the big deal about Essential Oils? It’s difficult to answer that question without going a bit into what wellness is.

If I were to ask someone on the street, their definition of  health & wellness, it would most likely be something like  “Being healthy means I’m not sick, I don’t have some type of chronic condition and I take pretty good care of the body.  I feel pretty well most of the time, so I’m healthy.”

If that definition were true, then each of us would be without that chronic or temporary disease, yet still lack the drive to get out of bed to live life to its fullest.

According to The World Health Organization, “Wellness is a state of complete 1. Physical, 2. Mental/(Emotional), and 3. Social/(Spiritual) well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” (I added a couple of words in parentheses to elaborate a bit.)

Before we go into how essential oils support each of these  3 categories let’s do a short science lesson on how essential oils work:

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural aroma and essence of their source plant.   Think of a rose, then picture 400 pounds of rose petals being steam distilled into a 5 ml bottle of pure rose essential oil.  That’s concentrated!

Each essential oil has an exclusive structure of natural chemical constituents that makes it unique to how it functions within the body.  This is why therapeutic grade lavender essential oil calms and peppermint essential oil energizes.

These constituents work collectively to correct your body and wellness level.   

Back to our definition of wellness. Wellness is a state of complete physical, emotional, and social well-being.   What’s the big deal about Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils?   They support each one of the three categories, thus supporting our body holistically or in its entirety. 

Essential oils support us Physically:

Essential Oils strengthen our immune system: Thieves, Cinnamon Bark, Oregano and Thyme.

Essential Oils support our bodies when we are physically ill.  Raven and R.C. are wonderful to aids in respiratory challenges.  Digize and Peppermint are wonderful supports for our digestive system.

When our muscles and joints are over-worked,  Panaway, Lemongrass, and Marjoram are the therapeutic grade oils we want to have on hand.

Essential Oils balance our emotions:   Therapeutic grade Lavender, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, and Aroma Life essential oils are a must-have for emotional support.

Valor and Bergamot can help relieve anxiety and mild depression.  I personally can attest to Valor helping pull me out of a blue mood.   Typically within 10 minutes after diffusing, I am ready to take on the world once more. (Valor is a Young Living propriety blend of Frankincense, Idaho Blue Spruce, Northern Lights Black Spruce , and Blue Tansy.)

Ylang Ylang can help ease depression, restlessness, and reduce stress levels.

Valor essential oil can provide the courage to go out into an uncomfortable social setting. 

If you are introverted or feel uncomfortable in large crowds. Wearing White Angelica essential oil can feel like wrapping yourself in a comfy blanket.

Peppermint and Rosemary  essential oils can increase your circulation thus boosting your energy level to tackle that last-minute project you thought you didn’t have the energy to complete.

Yes, Therapeutic grade essential oils can help you support your wellness journey, healing it physically, emotionally and spiritually.  

My passion is for you to live your life at the top of your wellness game.
