Feel Good Friday-Why are essential oils…essential?

Dear Sisters,

Today is a good day to ‘feel good.’ It marks the two year wedding anniversary of one of my son’s and his lovely bride. It would have been the 66th wedding anniversary of my in-laws. My in-laws have returned to their heavenly home during the past year. I am sure that they are celebrating a much better quality of life and love than they had here on earth. They are with the people that they love. 

While living a long life is something to be admired and appreciated, one of the things that breast cancer has taught me is that quality of life trumps quantity of life any day!

My health is more important to me than any earthly possession that I own. It is essential to my happiness in more ways than one.

Which brings me to the subject of…Essential Oils. What are they and why are they…essential not just to plants but to us?

I found the following definition on the Young Living website: 

Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties.

Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. 

Modern lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins can leave the body unbalanced and diminish energy levels. From cleansing and weight management to supporting every system of the body, essential oils and essential oil-infused supplements can provide the targeted solutions you need to restore balance and feel your best.

In other words: I believe that essential oils ARE essential to life itself!

I believe that God created the earth and everything that is in it. One of the first things he created was plants-The Garden of Eden comes to mind. I picture it as a beautiful place thriving with life and everything that men and women need to survive and thrive.

I started using essential oils from Young Living two weeks ago today. (I had been using one of their oils for a couple of months for one of my lingering health problems.)

I felt a huge difference within a few days. Within a week, a couple of my friends noticed that ‘something was different’ too in a positive way. 

As far as using essential oils to treat diseases, I have to quote from the founder of Young Living, Gary Young:  

We don’t talk about disease and we don’t treat and cure disease. We are about life-style and strengthening the body through nutrition and the power of essential oils. When we do this, the body will take care of itself. We are about self-improvement and living life to the fullest. Everyone is different and no two products are the same, therefore, no two people respond to the products the same way. By simply supporting and strengthening the body with a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition, everyone can have his or her own individual experience without trying to narrow it down to a specific product for a problem.

I KNOW that the essential oils has improved my quality of life like nothing else has during the last four years. I can’t imagine my life without them-or my family. They are essential!

Enjoy your day!

Tip of the Day Tuesday! Don’t ‘get bugged’ this Summer!

Dear Sisters,

Since today is the first official day of Summer, I am starting what I ‘intend’ to be a series of regular posts three times/week. Tip of the day Tuesday, Wellness Wednesday and Feel Good Friday.

My Purposes are to: Inform, share Natural alternatives (most of which will be plant-based) and Keep things simple. I will only share what has been working for me because everybody’s body is different. 

Welcome to Summer! For most of us that live in the United States, that means longer day’s, warmer days and…INSECTS!

If you are like most people, you dread them! You also try to avoid putting harmful chemicals on your skin to keep them away! I will never purchase anything that has ingredients that I can not pronounce. I strive to do the same thing with whatever I eat as well.

Because of my passion for PREVENTING diseases (and any situation that might be uncomfortable), I have found a solution that is plant-based. Most of my closest friends also know that I have a black-belt in bargain-hunting, so whatever I use has to be economical too! Which is one of many reasons WHY I LOVE essential oils! (This meme mentions 21 uses. I will share more of them in future blog posts)-which is one of many reasons why I LOVE essential oils! Stay tuned dear sisters!

YL What can you do with a 15 ml bottle of essential oil
