Essential Oils! Two definitions and suggestions for you. What essential oil research would benefit you?

Essential Oils!  Two definitions and suggestions for you. What research would benefit you?

As I continue to educate myself, I have found many articles on essential oils.  Some I have really enjoyed and you can tell the blog writer has done their research.

My question to you at this point, is what problem/problems do you have that you think would benefit from essential oils? What I am reading so far is that there are several essential oils for some problems such as aches & pains, inflammation, minor infections, sleeplessness, stress and maintain a calming disposition.  Other problems related to the nervous system, circulatory system and respiratory system the oil selection seem to slim down.  So my research will continue.

Here are a couple of definitions and suggestions for you:

Adulterated – Watered down!  Need to watch as the oil could be advertised as pure.  Adulterated oil mixed with synthetic extender, can cause a skin irritation, rash or a burn. Pure essential oils used incorrectly can cause skin irritations.

Beware of opened oils or if you are shopping in store, oils that look like they maybe have been around for a while.

Carrier oils- are oils, not cooking oils, added to dilute certain essentials oils to avoid irritation to the skin.  There are several carrier oils you can try.  Some are j

***Be very careful using applying some oils and going out in the sun.  Research this with wisdom as summer is fast approaching.  Remember store oils in a dark, cool place.

Have ordered some new oils for myself to try.  Helichrysum and Rose.  Will let you know what I come up with.

Researched this information from Essential Oils pocket reference-seventh edition and The Portable Essential Oils by Anne Kennedy.   New books coming with I hope lots of good information to share.#essentialoils#carrieroils#aches&pains

Essential Oils -Part 3

Selection of essential oils with various herbs and flowers in the background

Safety Issues and how to handle essential oils.  Safety in any business or industry is critical.  The food industry, the clothing industry, the car industry etc.

Remember this is a lesson in learning all we can, going slowly to better understand.  These are the basics:

  1. Be aware of safety precautions.  Keep out of the reach of children.
  2. Store in a cool dark area.
  3. Always keep a carrier oil such as olive oil , coconut oil to  treat a skin irritation. Do not flush an oil with water.
  4. Pregnant women always consult a physician or nurse practitioner before starting any type of a health program.  If you become interested in any essential oils, be sure you have educated yourself thoroughly.
  5. Being treated for a medical condition, consult your physician before starting an essential oil.
  6. Use oils in very small amounts, a drop or few drops to be sure your skin does not react negatively.
  7. Children – use caution and check with your medical person about a child and essential oils.  Some essentials oils are safe to use with children, some are not.  Error on the side of caution and check with your physican.
  8. Do not put essential oils in your ear canal. May use around the ear.
  9. Do not use around eyes.
  10. Watch for allergic reactions.
  11. Before ingesting any oil, be sure it is supposed to be ingested. Check with your medical person before ingesting any oil, not listed as can be taken internally.

The above are just some things to remember when learning about essential oils.  I know I have missed some.  Err on the side of caution, as you begin to learn safely how to use essential oils.

Essential Oils -Part 2

I recently read , on Pinterest, an article about essential oils and their respective companies.  Of course, I had to read as mine was one of the companies.  Boy, that article really shook the bushes and had everyone wanting to be heard.  I don’t believe I have ever seen so many comments from a blog.

The writer of the blog was just stating her opinion about the subject.  I am not sure if I was more upset by the comments or the article.  Then I thought isn’t it wonderful, that we live where people have the freedom to express their opinion.

Essential oils and the world of essential oils is not any different than any other business.  The problem is everyone wants you and I to state an opinion similar to theirs immediately, without looking at all the facts.

The solution, in my mind, is we need to decide for ourselves what we want to do.  If your interest is in aromatherapy, essential oils and plant therapy then educate yourself.  That does not mean you have to become certified ( my opinion).  You need to look at the 5 things I listed in Part 1 and see if you are ready to learn more about the world of essential oils.

Let me know under comments (on my blog) if you have question you have not had answered.

Essential Oils – an update on learning. 3/12/21

Essential Oils and plant extracts have been forever a part of history.  Essential oils have been found in many flowers and shrubs.  Europe has had rigid standards and controls in place for a long time on essential oils.  Aroma therapy has in many instances fallen prey to exaggerated claims, however pure essential oils containing no additives can be of benefit physically and mentally if used correctly and safely.  In order to do that we, you and I and the general public must become well educated.

Can we benefit from essential oils!  Yes, we know that, but it depends on what we are wanting to happen.  The benefits only come when you understand that.  Think about the following:

  1. What you want to accomplish by beginning to use oils.  An example – relief from headaches, sleep better or become a calmer individual.
  2. Are you willing to do the homework to understand how to use essential oils properly.
  3. Evaluate the benefit to you after you have used correctly for a certain period of time.
  4. Recognize that many essential oils have more than one benefit.
  5. Keep a journal of  all your essential oil recipes to share with others when questions are asked.   Laugh at yourself if you come up with a good recipe, but maybe the smell is not what you really wanted.

Let me know under comments (on my blog) if you have questions you have not had answered. My oils of choice come from Young Living.  Have enjoyed being associated with them.

Learning how much there is that can benefit us in the world of Young Living Essential Oils.

Sharing as I learn and want you to learn.  Did not know anything when I first became an independent distributor for Young Living.  Never in my wildest when we left our home that morning to go to a craft show, did I think I would come home as an independent distributor.

A good idea for all of us is to see a general overall picture of what is available with Young Living Essential Oils.

Here is some of the information I am going to share with you during my learning journey:

  1. Learning more about the quality of our oils
  2. Not being afraid to try new things and being able to explain why!
  3. Oils, Oils and more oils. What is a base oil?  What oils to use for recipes & how.
  4. Uses of each individual oil
  5. Men’s products
  6. Can you make good smelling scents for both men and women!
  7. Starter kit as a Mother’s Day Gift? Why!  Why not!
  8. Make up
  9. Oils for cooking
  10. Oils for children
  11. Diffusers

These are just a few things that I could think of right now.  Will be letting you know successes and not so successful ventures.  Join me.  Let me know under comments (on my blog) if you have questions you have not had answered.

Young Living Essential Oils !What to buy when.

20190116_192919_burst01_resized (2)

Just like starting a budget you evaluate your needs and pace yourself, on buying Young Living Essential Oils.  When you are just delving into the world of essential oils. look into everything that comes in your Premium starter kit.  Take everything out of the box and identify each and every item.  I have heard that many times people are slow to take to take things out of their Premium Kit Box and it really delays the time the education process begins. It is so interesting.

If you are going to buy as a member, you want to know what you are buying and why.  There are so many items available, not only wonderful essential oils, but also cleaning (Thieves) supplies and beauty items.  If you are going to become a distributor, the questions you need to ask yourself are: Is my spouse or partner on board with this?  What will our budget stand? Does this need to become a budget item that will show each month?  Young Living Essential Oils, should be a fun adventure, that is going to lead you to a healthier life style and a great education. #essentialoils#Younglivingessentialoils
