Most people hear the words “Essential Oils” and transfer that to mean Aromatherapy, having a vague notion of what that actually means – pictures come to mind of, say, spa treatments, or scented candles, and a general sense of calm and well-being. And then, believing that they have grasped the general concept of essential oils, they turn their attention to other things. Never even guessing the truth – that there is SO MUCH MORE to these incredible therapeutic tools, and their ability to have a profound impact on our lives!
Essential Oils are, perhaps, the only substance able to target and deal with Chemical, Physical, and Emotional Stress! Such as the way they facilitate the recognition and release of emotions (both positive and negative), supporting individuals through the processing of those emotion(s) and creating an environment where they can be safely addressed.
“EO’s” also remove toxins from the body, assisting in fighting off unfriendly micro-organisms, and stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Able to penetrate cells on a molecular level, therapeutic quality EO’s are effective against bacterial AND viral infections. This is why, in France, Essential Oils are covered by many health insurance plans – of course, the quality of oil is imperative. It’s the difference between a nice-smelling chemical, and a potent medicinal alternative! That’s why it’s so important to know the distribution company, and realize that a “food grade” essential oil is of far lower quality (and effectiveness!) than one that is considered “therapeutic grade”.
