Essential Oils are the essence of the plant. They carry and transmit information from one system to another and maintain balance and synergy within the plant. When distilled and bottled properly, their properties remain alive and active. Because of this they are uplifting physically, emotionally and spiritually!
We Go Way Back
The history of essential oils is ancient and quite fascinating! Did you know there are accounts of essential oils being used in ancient Egypt? And when plants such as hyssop were mentioned in Scripture it was often referring to the essential oil and not just the plant? Ancient peoples knew and appreciated essential oils for their use as perfumes, and as a way to maintain health. They also valued them for spiritual practices and used them in temples and during rituals.
You might begin to wonder how these oils can help you in your life today… especially considering you probably don’t go to the temple to sacrifice a goat on a daily basis. So, let’s take a look at how these oils are relevant now.
An Oil for Common Sense?
First, use them to support healthy emotions. Feeling a little overwhelmed by your daily commute? We have an oil for that! For one person it may be Stress Away, for another it may be Joy. And for others it may be Common Sense. We have all wished we could spread a little of that around at one point or another! Whatever the situation is for you, we have an oil for that!
Second, maintain a healthy lifestyle. You guessed it, we have a plethora of options for that too! Young Living offers essential oil singles, and blends. Try NingXia Red (a super food that comes in convenient, on the go packets). Use infused supplements to help you through each and every day! In fact, any one of our Young Living Premium Starter Kits are a great place to begin!
Cleaning with Essential Oils
What about cleaning? We all have to do it, or have it done for us. While harsh chemical filled household cleaners are still the norm, they have many negative side effects that come with their use. Simply breathing in the fumes from commercial cleaners can be overwhelming to your senses.
Here is where Thieves Household Cleaner, and our full line of Thieves cleaning products, comes in. These products are all infused with Young Living’s Thieves Essential Oil blend, which packs a cleansing punch! Made of Lemon, Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus and Rosemary this oil blend smells like fall. It makes the perfect cleaning companion! No harsh chemicals, no stinky odors, no worries! Get started with your Thieves Premium Starter Kit today!
And remember skincare and beauty! Maintain healthy, youthful looking skin, hair and nails with essential oils. So often we forget that the skin is our largest organ, and should be cared for appropriately! It helps us eliminate things our body does not need via sweat, and also absorbs nutrients, toxins and other chemicals. This can be both beneficial and harmful to your body, depending on what you expose your skin to.
These things, good or bad, are rapidly absorbed into your bloodstream. They can be transported throughout the body to organs and other tissues. Bearing this in mind, carefully consider how to help your skin do its job most effectively. Young Living Essential Oils offer plant based products for healthy skin maintenance for men, women, children and even a special line made just for babies!
