Often people turn to essential oils from a place of desperation.. Modern medicine has failed them, their needs are complex or they just don’t know where else to turn.
But I didn’t have a story like that, I didn’t have a ‘moment’ when oils became my saviour.. They crept into my life slowly and without me really noticing, like a thief in the night, changing how I thought about healing and preventative measures to keep ourselves healthy. Over time my knowledge and adoration increased for these gifts from nature.
They have become a part of my automatic daily routine…like brushing my teeth. They are my first thought for any ailment or low mood myself or my family are suffering from. I couldn’t imagine going back to relying on white pills in foil packets.
Essential oils are not magic potions though, they cannot fix you overnight, but I believe they support your body to heal itself, using both the physiological and psychological abilities our bodies have in their arsenal to reach that all important homeostasis.
Nature gave us everything we needed to remain healthy and succeed, maybe we just need to pay a bit more attention to what’s on offer?
