Essential oils have become a bit of a “buzz” word that a lot of people talk about. Yet, if you ask someone “what are essential oils”… you’ll get a different answer every time!
So let’s dive into a quick examination of just what exactly they are.
You can consider essential oils as the “life blood” of a plant. They circulate through all the plant tissue and carry nutrition into the cells and waste products out. Thus, the “essential” part… without them, the plant would die!
Here’s the interesting thing: when high quality essential oils are applied to your skin, they do many of the same tasks as they do while inside the plant. They quickly permeate the cell walls of your skin to deliver nutrition and remove waste.
As they do this, they help to clean the receptor sites of your cells… receptors that are easily disrupted by heavy metals and petrochemicals (the chemicals found in plastic).
This cleansing effect helps to restore balance to your body, which ultimately helps you to feel better.
Not All Essential Oils Are Created Equal
Notice I said high quality essential oils. That’s because not all oils are created equal. There are three types of essential oil: fragrance, food and therapeutic grade.
95% of all essential oils are made for the food and fragrance industry. There are hundreds of compounds in just one essential oil, but not all oils are used for healing purposes.
The fragrance industry is just interested in the nice smell. So in a lab they remove only the part of the oil that gives the smell and they throw the rest out.
The food industry just wants the parts that taste good. So in a lab the take out the ingredients that taste like mint, peppermint, cinnamon, etc., and use small amounts to flavor the things they make.
With Therapeutic Oils, all of the compounds are left in tact so that you can experience the fully health benefits that Mother Nature intended.
When “Natural” Isn’t Natural at All
Here’s where things get really fun…
Most of us are becoming savvy shoppers who read the labels for the food we buy. Words like “organic”, “sugar-free” and “all natural” are signs we look for that indicate that food is healthier for us.
Yet the government allows anyone to use the word “natural” on a product if… read very carefully now… the compounds that make up the product COULD be produced in nature!
Read that again. This means that even if the product is 100% man-made in a lab from synthetic materials, yet it could have been made of natural ingredients, then it can be labeled as “natural.”
That’s why you will find….
Oils That Heal & Oils That Don’t
Real therapeutic grade essential oils can promote restoration and provide balance to all of your body’s systems.
Synthetic oils do not.
How can you tell the difference?
The type of bottle is your first clue: REAL essential oils are stored in dark bottles with a label that shows all the ingredients, including the botanical name.
Synthetic oils come in clear bottles, do not show the ingredients or if they do, don’t list the botanical name and have absolutely no healing property at all.
You second clue is the price: Real essential oils cost more. And for many people, the higher price is a turn off. Yet what do you prefer? Mother Nature’s pure remedy… or synthetic garbage?
How To Use Miracle Essential Oils
When you’re just getting started, one of the most confusing aspects of essential oils is how to use them.
There are really only three basic ways:
1. Smell them
2. Apply them
3. Eat them
Using the fragrance of Real essential oils has been documented for eons. It’s how most people are introduced to them.
So when it comes to smelling them, you have a couple of options: you can put a few drops in your hand and smell them directly; or you can put them in a special device called a diffuser that sprays a fine mist into the air.
Diffusing is a great way to keep any room smelling fresh and vibrant all day long.
The other two are pretty self-explanatory: you can rub them on your body or you can eat them.
Be warned: Some oils are very powerful and if you rub them directly onto your skin, you may break out in a rash. When using a new oil, it’s best to rub it on only a small area first to see how you react.
And when I say “eat” them – most people just put a few drops in their favorite beverage or on their food.
Remember to use real therapeutic oils if you want to try that, as synthetic oils can be dangerous.
Mother Nature’s Miracle Essential Oils
Recently, I found a company that makes essential oils that I tried out, and I really loved their products!
It’s called Miracle Essential Oils – which I kind of like because essential oils are Mother Nature’s miracle.
One thing that set them apart was that they created a few special blends that can be used in any of the three ways I listed above.
So now, rather than trying to decide how to best use the oil, you don’t have to even think about it... just use whichever one suits your fancy!
But here’s the real reason I like them: they only use the best, highest quality plants for their oils.
You know, there are a lot of companies out there that talk a big talk… yet when you get under the hood you quickly discover that they’re all smoke and mirrors.
I used to use oils from another company that promoted itself as organic and all natural. However, one day I discovered how they actually processed their oils and I was horrified… there was nothing natural about it at all!
You can be darned sure that I wouldn’t make the same mistake twice!
So when I bought my first order from Miracle Essential Oils, I did a little more research into their business practices.
Here’s what I discovered:
Now, with all this attention to purity and premium delivery, you would think that their oils would carry a premium price.
Yet again, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how much my order would cost.
To be honest, I’m actually a bit curious to know how they are able to offer the low cost they do and still maintain the high-quality that they do.
But hey, I’m not complaining!
Now that we have covered both the application as well as the many benefits of the MEO (Miracle Essential Oil) Blends, you can try them for yourself today.
