The Essential Oil Craze- and Why I Love Them

Ah, the essential oil craze.

It sure can seem like that on social media these days, can’t it!

I never imagined they would become so popular; it’s so funny! It feels like there were a select few nerdy people who became aromatherapists and would maybe have sign-ups for an online course.

And then…the general public found out about them. And network marketing took off & well, here we are!

So, why do I personally love essential oils? And what is an essential oil?

Hello, I’m an essential oil! I am:

“a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted.”

The distillation process brings out the essence of the plant and some say, the healing properties of this plant.

Example: The lavender flower is known to promote calm & also to be anti-inflammatory when made into a tea or tincture, and perhaps then diffused into a lotion.

An essential oil is like a very, very powerful tea or tincture, I guess you could say. Also, instead of being added to water to bring it out, it’s in a more pure or concentrated form, just the essence of the plant.

Pretty amazing when you’re wanting to reap the benefits in the most powerful way available & save money doing it!

I guess I’m a cross between an essential oil nerd (who has taken an aromatherapy course, myself) and has studied up on different herbs & oils for a few years and just another person who is a network marketer 🙂

The only reason I decided to set myself up to sell a certain brand of oils is because I love the company. I love the on-ramp for anyone to be invited into a healthful lifestyle and I adore seeing a lot of friends living in less pain and greater consistent health.

If we don’t have our health, life can be so hard.

When we’re living in pain, it’s such a trial!

What are you favorite ways to boost your immune system in the Fall/Winter season?

And what do you think about essential oils?

I’d love to hear from you!

Xoxo,

Ailene
