Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals (chemical compounds found naturally in plants). In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends toward more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications. 
I think of my grandma’s tried and true use of peppermint drops for upset tummies. And how the smell of eucalyptus sprigs in a home has a calming effect. Then you get the idea behind the natural, holistic and safe use for essential oils. We are getting savvy to the fact that the health care system’s focus is on what they have been trained to do – treating you after you are sick. That is so backwards – instead we need to be getting healthy and staying healthy.
Actually, it was my debilitating headaches since 5th grade that turned me around. I was tired of little to no answers to even helping with the pain, let alone stop them from happening at all, from the medical community. I am not anti medical help, in fact I went there first, I just wanted a complete set of options. So I started on my journey that ended here – essential oils that supported health in my sinus system. I could do leg lifts laying flat at the gym with no headache the rest of the day. Win-win!
I was sold on essential oils at that moment. We all now use them daily to support healthy respiratory, digestive, immune, and neurological systems! And this isn’t mentioning how we are using them in our homes too! I realize I want to help others too take control of their health and bonus is that you can help the health of your finances also!
