CAN ESSENTIAL OILS HELP WITH BALANCING HORMONES?
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
They are the most powerful part of a plant. They are the life blood of the plant. Just like your blood clots through cuts and oxygenates your cells and detoxes the body, oils do the same thing for the plant. They are distilled from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, rinds, resins, herbs, fruit. Oils consist of over a 100 natural organic compounds. Plants can photo synthesise, work through trauma, energise and they can do similar things in the human body.
In humans, oils can provide support for every system in the body, your skeletal system, muscular system, brain health, circulatory system, endocrine system and hormones. They can help support a healthy weight and support your respiratory system and aid your immune system to support you when everyone else is sick. Oils can support every organ in your body, your liver, kidneys, heart, colon and can be used for emotions and grounding and for spiritual support. Oils in a diffuser can help calm you down, especially if you have had a stressful day at work.
Oils can be used as an alternative to toxic chemicals in your home. Thieves can be used to start to swap out the chemical cleaners in your home.
There are about 300 oils on the earth but you only need about 10 to 20 to get started and you don’t need to be an aromatherapist to know how to use them. In most cases you are using them topically on the skin.
Choosing the right essential oil is very important though. There are so many essential oils available. Most of the essential oils I have come across have been diluted down, they are not therapeutic grade and may have been distilled more than once so you are not getting 100% of the plant. It’s like re using a tea bag a second time, you won’t get all the flavour. It’s the same for essential oils. A lot of the essential oils do not comply with certain standards either.
What do I mean when I say “therapeutic grade”. This means that they are 100% pure and have been made seed to seal. Young Living essential oils are 100% pure and safe to ingest.
Therapeutic grade essential oils such as Young Living are completely safe and effective.
They are distilled from inside the plants and they are 100% pure, no fillers and no dilution. They are made by a process of seed to seal and follow strict guidelines. They will only use seed to seal suppliers and these suppliers are regularly checked to make sure they are following their strict guidelines of seed to seal every time to make sure they are 100% therapeutic grade.
