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.”
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!
