The 2nd episode of insight into Essential Oils and how they can benefit your life and improve your Lifestyle!
Hi, this is Cecilia Salvesen from HonestlyEssential.com. Very often, I'm asked the question, why do people use essential oils? This Earth was created to protect itself in order to sustain itself on an ongoing cycle. All of the plants that are here are to not only adorn the earth, but to also protect its environment. These plants that we tap into have therapeutic properties as defense mechanisms which are antiviral, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, etc. and we are able to bottle these therapeutic properties.
They also uplifting, soothing, calming with many other valuable properties. So when we use these, we are tapping directly into what nature offers us to protect ourselves. We are taking their protective mechanisms and using it for us. The benefit, of course, is there are no side effects. There are no harmful effects if used properly, like everything else, if it is not done in moderation, you can overdo it. Even drinking too much water can be harmful.
So when you use the essential oils exactly as they mean to be used and you use them correctly, you can tap into these valuable therapeutic properties, and Nature shares this with us in a very open and loving way inasmuch as there are no side effects and they are natural, there are no chemicals, no additives, no preservatives, nothing to harm us except to help us. I'll be talking to you again more soon about other valuable properties of essential oils.
