Why I Love Essential Oils and Recommend you do too

As a holistic nutritional consultant, healthy food solutions for wellness are pretty much right at the top of the list - of course, along with other lifestyle habits like getting enough sleep, exercise, drinking water and more. In spite of diligent efforts for health, however, we injure ourselves; have sore muscles, headaches and indigestion; plus a host of other afflictions that can show up from living in an imperfect world. Our medical system (believe me, I am so thankful for the privileged country I live in with access to modern medicine) offers help in many ways, very often in a chemical form which can be effective but also carries side effects.

Thus my love for essential oils. 

My introduction to essential oils was drinking peppermint tea, cooking with dried and ground herbs, and using oil of oregano and melaleuca (a.k.a.tea tree oil). However, with my growing inventory of quality essential oils I am learning about, and experiencing, wellness benefits like sleeping better and thinking clearer - and thankful for these natural, aromatic healing tools.

Essential oils include a myriad of plant seasonings and health enhancers with specific properties that I couldn't begin to cover here but I have included some things that have worked for me and others.

Cypress -  good for relaxing tight neck muscles, as well as a blend called Deep Blue.

Rosemary - worked well for sore achilles tendon after running two consecutive days.

Frankincense - I use this for so many things (its effectiveness makes up for its expense!); one of my favourite uses is for calmness and 'feel good' properties. My husband thinks it's a great after-shave - I agree - nothing but the best for this guy. Also, this oil is particularly interesting historically

Melaleuca has been a wonderful help for a condition my husband gets every winter: itchy, red swelling between the toes, irritating to no end. Putting a few drops of Melaleuca on these areas worked great for Derryl this winter. Melalueca, mixed along with another great healing oil, lavender, recently came to the rescue again for my husband: again in his toes! This time it was to treat a burn when a small slice of hot metal fell off our decrepit barbeuce and landed right between two toes, immediately creating a blister. With very little air getting at it to heal, especially covered with socks and workshoes all day, this was getting to be a 'real pain' - we finally clued in and gave the melaleuca and lavender combo a try. Healed up nicely. (Another benefit of this: we now have a new barbecue that isn't spewing bits of itself on unsuspecting victims.)

A Winter Blues Buster - for your diffuser

4 drops wild orange

3 drops lavender

2 drops Frankincense

Add to 70-80 ml water and use in diffuser. This is a great combination to use in the evening to help experience a good night's sleep.


AromaTouch Technique 

Aromatherapy includes different applications - aromatically, topically, internally. A topical technique has been designed by doTERRA - after which personally experiencing, i.e. so relaxing and stress-reducing - I have learned how to do myself, so I could add this hands-on benefit to my holistic nutrition business. Unfortunately this can not be applied online.


I hope this information has been helpful for you. I am not an expert in essential oils - just learning and experimenting what works for me and learning from others. If you are also on this natural medicine route, let me know what works for you.

Disclaimer. I use doTERRA oils so am most familiar with this company, but I am not proposing to push this brand on you. However, for the healthiest results, I recommend you choose certified pure, therapeutic-grade oils that do not use rapid processing or chemical intervention of any kind. Again, I am not a doctor and my comments in this blog and on my site are not to be taken as medical advice - they are simply what has worked for other people or myself.
