10 Reasons Why I LOVE Essential Oils

Essential oils have blessed my life in so many ways, I have so much gratitude for the knowledge and understanding that I have about natural remedies and holistic health. These are the top 10 reasons why I love using essential oils (in no particular order):

    1. No side effects! When I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, the doctor gave me medication to help my problem… and then additional medication to counteract the side effects of the first medication. It was discouraging to learn that I had to take medication in the first place, and it was even worse that the medication didn’t make me feel good. I am so thankful that I no longer have to rely on medications on a daily basis, I use my essential oils instead.

  1. Cost effective solutions. Purchasing medications can get very expensive, and it can also be a nightmare to deal with insurance companies and the coverage that they will or will not offer for specific health situations. By using my essential oils first, I am able to avoid unnecessary medications and save money that would have been spent on co-pays, prescription payments, and deductibles.
  2. Better moods. It is incredible how quickly essential oils can my mood around. If I find that I am having a rough day, or I’m a little grumpy… I simply pull out a bottle of essential oil and breathe in deeply. My mood improves within 30 seconds, and I am back to my usual cheery self.
  3. Natural alternatives to medications. Our modern world is bombarded with pollutants and chemicals that are not good for our health. Even medications are filled with man-made chemicals that could potentially harm us (especially with long-term use). I am so grateful to have the ability to choose my approach to my health care, and I love using plant-based, natural compounds that support my overall well-being.
  4. Helping other people. I find myself frequently reaching for my bottle of essential oil when a friend or family member is in need. It is wonderful to help the people I love, and see them find the relief they are looking for!
  5.  Treat the problem instead of masking symptoms. Most of the time, medications are treating 1 specific symptom or problem. Instead of looking at the root case to see what is causing the symtpom, doctors treat the symptom itself… often masking the root problem by hiding the symptom. Using essential oils allows me to target the root of the problem, which naturally takes away the symptoms because the root problem has been solved.
  6. Faster results. I find that essential oils often work faster than medications. Essential oils can be integrated into the bloodstream within 30 seconds, but medications often take longer before they kick in.
  7. Avoiding sickness and disease. Using essential oils and other natural remedies has allowed me to take a preventative approach to my healthcare. I am able to be proactive in my day-to-day living in order to prevent illness from setting in. Before learning about natural remedies, I took a very reactive approach to my living, and it has been wonderful to change my focus. Plus, I rarely get sick now!
  8. Versatile uses of essential oils. One type of essential oil can often be used in multiple situations, but medications often only have 1 use. For example, heartburn medication can only be used for a few select stomach problems (acid reflux/heartburn), but lemon essential oil can be used for heartburn PLUS depression, fever, cleansing, purifying, infection, energy, parasites, etc. Those are only a few of the uses of lemon essential oil, click here to see many more ways lemon can be used.
  9. Freedom to choose. I love the fact that I have the knowledge and understanding to make a choice each time a health concern arises. Instead of blindly depending on a medication professional to tell me what to do, I am able to make educated decisions with natural remedies. My approach is to use essential oils first, and medical treatments/interventions second… and it has worked out great for me. I am thankful to have medical options available if they are needed, but I am even more grateful that I can use my essential oils first before turning to unnatural solutions.

These are just a few of the reasons why I love essential oils so much. They are so powerful, and they have literally changed my life for the better! I am incredibly grateful that God has provided us with so many natural healing options to support our health and wellness.
