As moms, we try to do the best for ourselves and our families.
We buy organic food.
We try to avoid toxins in things we ingest or put on our bodies.
We do our best to exercise regularly. (OK I still struggle with this one).
But what do you do when you need something for aches and pains or when sickness strikes your child or you are mentally/emotionally needing medicinal help?
Most people turn to conventional medications, those that are prescribed by doctors or purchased over the counter.
The problem with those medications is that they are
1) tied to risks that are usually outlined in small print that people tend to skip over that are very real (check out this article)
2) not fully researched over time since the sample size is small (long term effects are not yet known)
3) pharmaceutical and food companies have their eyes on profits more than overall healthcare (article).
Please don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that there isn’t a place for modern medicine. Emergency room doctors save lives and modern medicine has made very important discoveries.
But most people NEVER consider ESSENTIAL OILS as an alternative to helping with everyday problems.
Essential oils are natural and healthy and have been used for centuries.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food.” In other words, FOOD IS MEDICINE.
Why don’t our doctors ever talk about plants that may help before prescribing medication that is synthetically made?
I believe the answer is that part of modern medicine is curing the symptoms and not looking at the root cause.
First let me say that I am not a medical professional and this website is not FDA approved. I am a mom that has seen the benefits of essential oils in my life, my family’s, and countless others and have a passion to share what I’ve learned.
Hence my website name ESSENTIAL OILS HELP is two-fold: Essential oils help you in life (see how here) and I am here for helping with information on how to use them and how to get them in your home.
