Why I Use Essential Oils

white blossomsWe hear so much about essential oils these days. There must be something to it! What are the essential oil benefits which would inspire me to crack open a bottle? I use essential oils for many reasons, but one rises above and sums up all the rest.

They make me feel good.

And when I feel good, all things are possible: balance, healing, optimism, clarity, energy, problem-solving, joy. Which oils give me these benefits? I love Lavender, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Cassia, Peppermint and just about any citrus oil. They make me want to breathe in life more deeply, and this is a good thing.

So much of our physical ailments are connected to our emotional hurts. It’s too easy to get caught up in the things that hurt us. I know, we need to deal with the things on our plate, but we also need clarity, balance, and optimism to be able to deal with them more effectively. And we need to breathe deeply for energy flow and balance and to oxygenate our cells.

My day goes better when I wear essential oils. My favourite perfumes of the past pale in comparison to the exotic fragrance of a pure essential oil! My whole home smells of essential oils because when I diffuse one on my Terra Cotta Pendant, I share it with my environment and with everyone I meet.
