There is nothing new about using herbs, spices, and other natural extracts to improve health, beauty, and nutrition. Using nature to heal our body has a rich history dating back thousands of years. Around 400 B.C., Hippocrates stressed the idea that diet, exercise, and overall happiness form the foundation of health. Today those same principles are just as true.
To our benefit, technology has brought new and exciting ways to understand and use natural compounds to improve our overall wellbeing. Much like a cofactor or coenzyme, essential oils work by increasing the body’s natural ability to speed the chemical reactions necessary for life and vitality. Because these natural compounds are highly concentrated, very small amounts of essential oils can yield powerful results.
Essential oils have been shown to present low risk and have few adverse side effects when used correctly. They are an excellent alternative for yourself, your children, and the elderly. There are different application methods for specific essential oils, each providing a unique experience and benefit to the body.
Our complex body systems and delicate internal organs have specific needs. Because each
body is as individual as we are, it can be a challenge to know where to start on your path to meet the real you.
