What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are concentrated extracts taken from roots, leaves, seeds, or blossoms of plants. They each contain their own mix of active ingredients, and this mix determines what the oil is used for.
Some oils are used to promote physical healing, like treating swelling, fungal infections or inflammation. Others are used for their emotional value, like relaxation, calming or motivating.
Essential oils have been used for therapeutic purposes for thousands of years. Ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used them in cosmetics and perfumes for hygienic, spiritual and ritualistic purposes. More recently, in war times they have been observed to be effective in treating burns, skin infections, gangrene, and wounds.
Today, mass production means that many lotions, candles, and beauty products are sold as “aromatherapy.” However, many of these products contain synthetic fragrances that do not have the same properties as essential oils.
Why are they for me?
Well. I grew up in a hippy town surrounded by woo-woo incense burning, oil wearing, psychic chanting people. I wasn’t one of them, and even though I didn’t judge their views, I personally always thought it was a bunch of bull and that essential oils were just whiffy liquid in a bottle.
I loathed lavender because my mum would pick up a bottle from the $2 bargain shop when she was in the mood to be a bit boho.
Then when I flew the nest, I studied science, biology, anatomy, physiology to an advanced level and I never looked back.
Until this year. When my body started telling me “that’s enough”. I’d abused it for too long. I had to find ways to nurture it back to balance.
I didn’t understand there were THOUSANDS of uses for these precious little bottles of alchemy. I also have come to realise that quality and authenticity of oil matters. Plus I have come to the view that modern medicine might be easier because it’s right there in front of us being prescribed day in day out, but that oils can have a place in healing when used correctly.
And since finding this out, and connecting with many like-minded humans, I also realised it’s not about making huge life changes – it’s simple, and it supplements what you already do. Small change that shifts you one inch closer to living a more natural life.
Why you might like them too.
You can use them for everything! LITERALLY.
Cleaning, mood management, calming, making our own perfume, deodorant, body butter and air freshener so that we aren’t using toxin, endocrine disrupting damaging chemicals and synthetic fragrances, energy clearing, enhancing meditation, focus and clarity, enhancing the immune system, supporting the respiratory system and sinuses, soothing tension, supporting the body through Winter and when environmental threats are high and just about anything you can think of.
