Essential Oils

I have been using essential oils on myself, my family and in my home for several years.  I’ve always been the sort of mum, that whenever my family became ill, I wanted to support their body in coming back into balance – homeostasis – it is what our body is designed to do.

 

I love the quote by Rudolf Steiner, For every human illness, somewhere in the world exists a plant which is the cure.

Maybe this is why essential oils have always resonated with me.  I cannot imagine my life without them.  They have become so integrated into everything I do.  They are my first port of call to restore balance, harmony and connection in our lives.

 

 

What are Essential Oils?

 

Essential oils are nature’s living energy.  They are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds.  The distinctive components in essential oils defend plants against insects, fungus, bacteria, viruses, environmental conditions and disease.

 

Essential oils are extracted from aromatic plants by steam distillation and are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs.  For example, 1 drop of peppermint essential oil is equivalent to 26 cups of peppermint tea.

 

 

Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science

 

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for just about every health challenge – mental, emotional and physical.  The Egyptians were the first people to make use of aromatherapy and aromatic herbs using them for religion, cosmetics and medicinal purposes.  In the Bible alone, there are over 200 references to essential oils used for anointing and healing.  Clinical science of aromatherapy is now catching up to support and prove the medicinal benefits of this natural pharmacy.

 

Go to www.pubmed.com and do a search on essential oils.  You will find thousands of references to current scientific studies into essential oils.

 

 

Why Young Living

In processing the Young Living oils, no chemicals are used at any point in their production, including the growing of the plant, harvesting, distillation and bottling.  This process is called Seed to Seal.  The end result is a perfect oil – the highest quality, therapeutic grade, essential oil available on the market today.

Young Living products balance the body, mind and spirit, and create non-toxic and harmonious homes and workplaces, through the ancient wisdom of aromatherapy.  Products include oils, nutrition, beauty and cleaning solutions.

 

The way of the future

 

Essential oils are fast becoming the way of the future.  They are easily absorbed into the body, are non-toxic when produced properly, are highly concentrated and they retain the life force of the plant.

 

Dr Wayne Dyer gave a talk about the Young Living Essential Oils in June 2013.  In his talk he said, The only reason I accepted this speaking engagement…is because I believe that what you are doing will change our planet…You are part of a company that is founded on miracles…you teach the world that there is a better way, through God’s bottles of essential oils”.

Raindrop Technique

 

raindropImagine the sensation of sinking into a deep and blissful state of rest, as you receive the ancient Tibetan version of reflexology on your feet.  As you slowly (even reluctantly) come back to your body and roll over, you experience the gentle splashes as therapeutic grade essential oils are applied up your spine and to your tired muscles.  These oils are then ‘feathered in’ using a spine-tingling technique inspired by the Native Americans, and your back is further invigorated with a combination of exotic bodywork and massage techniques.  Sound like heaven?  It sure is!

 

 

Testimonials

 

Dani: I felt fully supported on all levels. Thank you so much. The pain in my left shoulder has gone and my heart feels so much more open. And I grew taller!

Caren: I feel free. The oils felt just like a waterfall cascading down my back. I did not expect this. I can breathe better.

Rob: The tension has gone from my shoulders and upper back. I feel stretched. I have so much more movement in my upper back area. I feel so relaxed in my body but energized at the same time if that makes sense.

Chris: I feel a sense of calmness. Peaceful and relaxed. I have no discomfort in my body which is a miracle in itself. How can I stay feeling this way always?
