I often get asked if I use essential oils. And I say yes, yes I do. I am not schooled in the use of them and my curiosity has only just recently been sparked by the healing benefits of essential oils. And while I am considering adding them to my repertoire of healing modalities, I just wanted to share my experience with you all.
I have been using Plant Therapy, Germ Fighter, (available here http://amzn.to/1jXhew8) for about a year. I have an electric wall plug in oil burner (available here http://amzn.to/1LASyzK) that runs 24/7 in a center outlet in my house. Germ Fighter is supposed to protect us from getting the horrible bugs that go around, as well as protect us from the common cold, sore throat and even allergies. Legend tells that this essential oil blend was what was used by robbers during medieval times to protect themselves from the plague. It seems that they would break into the homes of victims of the plaque and not contract it. The robbers swore it was the essential oil blend that protected them.
I have to say that I believe that IT WORKS. While everyone around us tends to pick up many of the nasty bugs and illnesses going around, we mostly stay fairly healthy. If I find that a few of us (there are 6 of us) are getting run down or we start with a few coughs and sniffles, I can usually relate it to not using the oil for a few days. I just make sure to add a few drops every day and voila! we are better.
While the use of essential oils has gone on for thousands of years, recent research studies are showing that they have positive effects on many medical conditions. Essential Oils can be used in diffusers and misters, topically and orally.
