I wasn’t sure if essential oils were quite what they were credited to be. My wife is a massage therapist and wanted to update her repertoire. She had met someone at a network meeting who introduced her to essential oils. She saw the value for her business and added it to her wellness program for her clients. Soon every client was treated to a diffuser misting an essential oil specially selected for that client. One of the benefits to having a wife as a massage therapist is being the test case for new products and procedures. So this is how I was introduced to Essential Oils.
One of the first oils was Thieves. I mentioned I was coming down with a cold. She gave me a bottle and said breath this. Then she set up a couple of diffusers to mist Thieves around the house. After that she would have an oil for any condition that came along. Most you would rub on your skin and/or breath in. Some could even be used as a dietary supplement.
One important thing to remember when using essential oils is to use them in the correct manner. They are in a concentrated form. You should follow the directions for each oil and use it correctly. Just like eating chips and salsa, most people are not going to eat a whole bag and jar and be without any, shall we say, distress in the lower tract. Okay there are a few of you who could do this, but the major of people would be wise enough not to.
So use a little common sense and enjoy essential oils and their benefits. Hey, anything that has been used for so long as essential oils can’t be bad, can they? I highly recommend you check them out. As I said at the beginning of this blog, “I wasn’t sure if essential oils were quite what they were credited to be.” Now I’m a believer.
