Lion Magic. . .
If you'd said ten years ago that I would become wildly enthusiastic about essential oils, I would have said you were crazy! Aromatherapy just seemed a little too weird. Well, I once felt that way about energy work, too, and look what happened: I'm doing it! I admit it, I'm a fanatic convert, because essential oils affect our emotional bodies through aromatherapy and our bodies, using the medicinal properties of the plants, through inhalation, ingestion, topical application! There are so many amazing modalities and products to help us restore and maintain wellness. It's up to us to find which ones work best for us. Please note that my comments below refer only to the therapeutic grade Young Living™ Essential Oils... I cannot vouch for other brands of oils that may not have the same high-quality ingredients or processing.
With therapeutic-grade essential oils, (as compared to perfume-grade oils) it's not just about the aroma, it's also about the therapeutic qualities and properties of the plants. In addition to the therapeutic propterties of the individual plants, these oils all have antioxidant properties, kill germs, oxygenate the cells, assist with removing toxins from the body, and support the immune system. The body takes in these properties best through the nasal passages and through topical application on the bottoms of the feet (there are connections on the feet to all the meridians in the body, which conduct the oils throughout the body very quickly).You also can apply them topically on your body to help with various mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual issues. You can diffuse them in your home for a wonderful, uplifting, aroma, while you are absorbing the therapeutic qualities through your nasal passages (better than chemical "air fresheners"!). You can use them to support your health and that of your pets.
Aromatically, you get a double-header with these oils—not only do they smell wonderful in the air or used as a perfume (Joy™ blend is wonderful!)—but there are additional therapeutic qualities, because aroma affects the part of the brain associated with emotions. and have their therapeutic assistance as a side benefit. And you can cook with and ingest some of them—lemon, peppermint, clove, oregano, and thyme, for example—to benefit from their therapeutic properties and their wonderful taste! Lavender (pictured) is an all-purpose healer. It is calming to the mind and soothing to the body. It's especially good for burns.
Young Living™ also has a line of healthy, effective household products (Thieves™ cleaner, hand purifier, soap, toothpaste, etc.), face and body products, and supplements, all based on and including essential oils. They are a nice alternative to all the chemical-laden products out there! They also offer NingXia Red™ wolfberry juice and bars, which have many antioxidant and therapeutic qualities. The company mission and policy is to use essential oils and natural ingredients of the highest quality, without toxic chemicals, preserving the intrinsic therapeutic properties of the plants.
Here are some examples of how well these oils work:
