#31 drops -- October 2:
There’s nothing mysterious or weird about essential oils! You’ve been dealing with them – smelling them and ingesting them -- all your life, even if you never really thought about it.
Essential oils are found in plants – from mighty trees to tiny flowers. In herbs and spices. In roots, bark and stems. If you’ve enjoyed Earl Grey tea – it’s flavored with Bergamot. If you’ve made Indian or Thai or Italian dishes – you’ve used ginger, cardamom, and oregano. Have you ever smelled a rose? Yep, that’s essential oil you’re experiencing.
These precious oils are distilled (or cold pressed for citrus oils) directly from carefully harvested plants. This is not a willy-nilly process. For the most pure and potent oils the right plant must be grown in it's own perfect environment, then harvested at the peak time for its own unique ideal therapeutic profile, and distilled by experts using exacting methods. Because quality matters -- and it is very important -- brand matters if you are seeking something more than, "oh this smells good."
So okay, there are essential oils but what is the big deal? The thing is that essential oils contain compounds at a molecular level that are nourishment – on a cellular level – for your body. Essential oils have an unsurpassed capacity to support and benefit your body in because of many factors: their molecular density and complexity and their natural affinity and compatibility with our cells.
So how do you use nature's powerful tools? There are three pathways to getting essential oils in your body: aromatically, topically and internally. More about these three pathways in the coming days!
TIP #2: Try cooking with essential oils. Here’s a nice and easy recipe for Chai Latte – perfect for fall and waaaay better for you (and your wallet) than Starbucks!
