Essential Oils

 

Growing up on a farm where our parents aspired to be self sufficient and not only grew our own fruit and veg, but also grew grain, made it into flour and then bread. Mum would knit brown and white jumpers, hats and blankets from our sheep's wool, that she had hand spun. Starting her own health shop in a country town in the '80s and testing out seaweed and lentil patties on us as kids, we soon grew to love the natural lifestyle and have always believed in healthy living and the importance of good quality natural products.  

Hippocrates said "Let food be thy medicine. This really resonates with us, and why we got so excited when we discovered essential oils in 2017 is they are like supercharged plant power. For example, one drop of peppermint essential oil is like 28 cups of peppermint tea, in terms of the support it can provide with regard to digestion and alertness. 

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilisations across the globe, so they are certainly not a new thing. What is new, is that more and more scientific evidence is developing to show what we, as a human race have always known and that is that the oils work.  You can learn more about the science and evidence on aromatic science.com.

In September 2017 in Salt Lake City, doTERRA launched their vision for health care.  The aspiration is not for essential oils to be an ‘alternative medicine’ but to be integrated alongside modern medicine.  To do this, they are developing a model health clinic which initially will be onsite to serve the 2,500 employees in the Head Office.  In order to achieve this vision, doTERRA understands that the research needs to be robust in order to demonstrate the efficacy to medical professionals.  doTERRA are also working closely with many universities to expand the research that is available about how the oils are working.  We think this is such an exciting ambition and we are so glad to be part of it in our small way of sharing these oils and empowering individuals and families in their own homes.

We have added essential oils to our tool kit for healthy living and love using doTERRA essential oils in our homes for our family and pets.  We reach for essential oils daily for mood, wellbeing,  sleep support, gut health, energy, focus, aches and pains, immune support, to avoid toxins in our cleaning and personal care products, and for flavouring our food (especially raw chocolates!)  We are using the Modern Essentials app to help guide us as different issues arise that we need to deal with as well as the amazing online communities that we are now part of.
