I am the first one to admit, I really didn’t get what the hype was on essential oils? Until about a year and a half ago I thought they were amazing for enhancing potpourri, lavender was great for a relaxing bath, peppermint could help ease a headache, and that was my limited knowledge. When people would share with me their “oil experiences and oil uses” I was excited for them, but I will admit, and I am going to be honest, that I thought essentials were a bit of hocus pocus. That was my belief, until I had my first couple “oil experiences”, until I realized the healing properties of essential oils. So about a year and a half ago I decided to find out what the hype on essential oils really was about? So, I ordered a kit of dōTERRA oils (the EVERY oil kit – I wanted to have them all) and started researching essential oils. I have to admit I was amazed…I had no idea they were mentioned 500 times directly in the Bible, that Romans and Egyptians used them. I also had no idea that there is an oil for everything! Did you know that you can put diluted (with a carrier oil/dōTERRA fractionated coconut oil) oregano on a wart? Or that peppermint works with digestion, fevers, headaches, and that is just the beginning? Or that citrus oils are great for depressions? Frankincense works wonders on acne and cancer cells – there is even message on pubmed.gov on frankincence? These are just a few of the uses for essential oils. As a chiropractor and wellness expert, I was drawn to the healing properties of essential oils giving an avenue other than pharmaceuticals and over the counter for individuals seeking wellness alternatives.
One key aspect I found in my research on essential oils was that essential oils cross cell membranes, promoting cellular healing and DNA repair. This ONE point completely shifted my perspective, since then I have incorporated essential oils in to my daily wellness routine. Cellular health is really important especially when you realize you are only as healthy as your cells!
