Did you know, that Plant Based Medicine goes way back before modern medicine?
ESSENTIAL OILS have been God’s natural way of healing and wellness for thousands of years. It is well documented that their roots go back to Biblical Times, Chinese Medicine, Greek Botany, India’s Ayurvedic Medicine, and Egypt whose own King Tut’s whose tomb was discovered with 50 Essential Oils! These awesome Essential Oils enhance your everyday lives in all aspects of wellness and health, including your yoga practice!
Essential Oils offer alternatives to today’s conventional methods to support healing. Conventional drugs often cause damage and adverse effects. A brief list includes the following:
On the other hand, Essential Oils are the very “Essence of the plant”. They get their name from “quintessential”, literally translated “the fifth sense”. It is thought to be the highest element and when combined with earth, air, fire and water, it is the fifth element that makes up the whole of a being. Essential Oils are comprised of the “Essence” of the plant providing endless benefits for health and wellbeing!
Lavender for example, is predominantly composed of Linalyl acetate, which is known to be anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial in nature; as well as Linalool, which has been researched and found to have anti-anxiety and likely anti-cancer benefits. It is thought that Cleopatra bathed in the flowers and oil and it was the expensive oil that Mary poured on Jesus feet. Lavender is well known for its skin softening and healing properties, aid in sleep, anxiety, insect repellant, headache relief, blood sugar balance and blood pressure health and much more!
