Natural Healing – Essential Oils

Written by Kajsa IngelssonMay 25, 2017

Today there seems to be a pill for everything.. Tired? Take this upper! Can’t sleep? This one will take you down! Anxious? Double up on this little blue one! What’s often overlooked are the side-effects that these medications come with, not to mention how it’s all connected with the destruction of our planet.

Before the beginning of the reign of the big pharmaceutical companies, there was a wide knowledge about natural healing using plants; tonics, oils and teas. Every village had at least one medicine woman who possessed a great knowledge in the natural healing world. These women were later accused of being witches, hunted down and burned at the stake.

The time has come for the “witches” and all their knowledge of natural healing to rise up again. Let’s take back the control of our health from big pharma and neglectful doctors.

Let’s go on a healing journey together, exploring various methods of remedial treatments. First off is a series about essential oils. You ready for this? OK!

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants with tremendous healing properties. Using essential oils for healing purposes is often called aromatherapy, which is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental and emotional health. You can access the power of essential oils many ways, but the most common practices include aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption.

Tune in tomorrow as we will discover the the full potential of our first essential oil, lemon.
