Hey Beloved! Welcome to EP 20 – WHAT?! Number 20. So cool. As you know my goal is to educate and empower you with tools to help you be more empowered in your health and in your home. As an Essential Oil Specialist, Wellness Advocate, Holistic Life Coach, and boiled all of that into one as a Holistic Lifestyle Strategist, PLUS a wife and mom of 4 girls, and because of my passions and life experiences, I am extremely motivated to make a positive impact in the world by helping moms create freedom in their families. I am a freedom fighter! And by having real-world solutions at your fingertips for 80% of the issues that come up on a daily basis, you can create freedom in your home. I also believe that when God created this planet he gave us exactly what we needed – He left us with the perfect plant solutions to help us transform and prosper in our health.
No, we can’t get around eating right, exercising, resting and managing stress, and reducing our toxic load. And anytime I have suffered in my health, it’s because I’ve stopped paying attention and prioritizing those things. So today, we’re going to talk about How To Use Essential Oils To Start Your Own Home Apothecary With Essential Oils To Create A Happy, Healthy, Holistic Home. Because they are not only great to help in those areas, but that is really just the tip of the iceberg. I want to read you a testimonial from a fellow mama.
So amazing Megan, thanks for sharing. Alright Beloved, let’s dig in!
Everything we do starts not only with a solid wellness foundation, as I already mentioned, we can’t get around eating right, exercising, resting and managing stress, and reducing our toxic load. What we DO affects us – it’s pretty simple. But what we DON’T DO affects us just as much. What we refuse to allow to enter into our bodies helps us live a healthier, more empowered life, and puts our health back into our own hands. 1 Corinthians 6:20 “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” This means that what we do to, or put in, on and around our bodies matters to God. Do you not know that your body is set apart by God, for God? That it’s holy, sacred, and is the place of divine dwelling? That it’s the housing of His breath of life? Yes Beloved it is!
Did you also know that 1 million workers miss work each day due to stress? And an average of 7 million people caught the flu at work in a single year? AND that 4 of the 5 top causes of absenteeism at school or work are easily resolved with natural solutions? 4 out of 5 isn’t bad! Now you may or may not work outside of the home and your kids might just be homeschooled like my younger ones are, but regardless of if you work in the home or outside of the home, or your kids are homeschooled or go to public school, anyone and everyone could benefit by knowing how to use essential oils for their health and their home. Essential oils are the simple tools you didn’t know you needed to help you get the job done!
You are the hero of your home! As an extension of God’s grace, love, mercy, and power, He put you there to guide, heal, comfort, protect and lift up your loved ones. And I believe that God creates opportunities for connection in the little moments throughout the day like the skinned knee, the tummy ache, the headache, the out of control emotions that need soothing, and anything else that happens on the day to day. I like helping moms swoop in, fix the thing, get everyone back on track, and walk away the hero. And I love helping them do that in a simpler, safer, and more effective way because at the end of the day, these are the moments that make us better people. These tender moments allow us to be open and vulnerable with our children. They help us expand our capacity to love. And God sees that – He honors that and the time we took to step away from what we were doing and instead focus so intently on this precious child and to do it with confidence, love and grace and He redeems that time. He strengthens our bond with our child, their trust with us, and our relationship. And He also uses it as a teaching moment for them too because kids love using essential oils! It helps them feel empowered to care for themselves in a way that brings health and results. And what better way to teach them about God’s creation. Pure and natural, unadulterated plant power with no harmful side effects.
This is my disclaimer: Remember, not all essential oils can be considered safe for medicinal use, i.e. pure, unadulterated, 3rd party tested and validated, properly packaged, cultivated and distilled for health benefits and medicinal purposes. In fact, experts estimate that 80% of the commercially available essential oils on the market have been adulterated in some way (aromaticplant.org). You do not want to use a cheap, fake essential oil that wasn’t tested for the highest health benefits. So please use caution and work with a specialist that has experience. Even though you might not be able to tell the difference between the real deal and the fakes, your body can! You want to make sure you are getting the gold standard and that the oil is effective and creates a positive biological response in the body vs stopping or inhibiting pathways that should have been activated – which does suggest adulteration. Synthetics or adulterated oils either produce no biological response in the body, or have a negative response in the body. For now, only work with a brand you trust that can do that and has been tested and verified for this. For more on what a quality, testing and sourcing of essential oils be sure to tune into the next episode where I will be going more in-depth on this topic.
Why Essential Oils?
Ok, so you are here listening to this because you would like to improve your health. You want to improve your family’s health. You want to keep your kids healthy. That’s awesome! I am so excited to work with you and help get you started because I want you to know that you have a choice! I am here to help moms be better moms…and of course, help dads be better dads too. My husband loves being empowered to use oils. Believe it or not, dads do like to be empowered too! When I used to teach in-person classes in my community I would take our oils when I taught, and that left him with no tools at home. I learned that had to have a teaching set and a set to leave at home.
My husband and are 15 years into our natural health journey and we’ve been using oils since Nov 2012 for anything that we would go into a clinic for. We use them as much for preventative care and mood support as we do for life’s little everyday emergencies. Here is what we’ve used the oils for in our home:
Essential oils act on the body quickly! They can get into the bloodstream within 30 sec and affect every single cell in the body within 20 minutes. They can be diffused into the air and breathed in or applied topically and absorbed into the skin. So that means you don’t have to fight with your kids to take anything! Unlike herbs, they are highly concentrated so a little goes a long way. They are 50-70x more potent than their herbal form which makes them very cost effective. Fro example, 1 drop peppermint EO has the equivalent potency of approx 28 cups peppermint tea. And they are allergen-free! Share Amber’s story – gluten intolerant, had to make sure that everything was gluten free and I’m grateful that by default EOs are free of the top allergens. They are dairy-free, Egg, nut, fish + shellfish, wheat, soy, and yes – gluten free
And so as I have been teaching about EOs over the past 9 years, I’ve noticed that people fall on a wide range of a spectrum. On one end are people that are REALLY into natural health care. So much so that they think Drs and prescriptions are evil. Then on the other end you have people so much into Western medicine that they think anything natural is voodoo. And you also have people in the middle that might sometimes lean one way or the other. In fact, let’s do this, think about where you fall and I want you to come on over and share in the FB group where you’re at on the Eastern-Western medicine spectrum!
Wherever you land is ok, embrace it! Share where you stand, I think that modern medicine is inspired and that it’s blessed humanity in incredible ways. However, I also feel that we are over prescribed as a people. I’ve come to learn that since using these essential oils that when the Earth was created, that it was not left medicineless.
The word apothecary comes from the apothēkē (key) in Greek and it means a place in which anything is laid by or up, a storehouse, or granary. Historically, the term “apothecary” referred to both the person who manufactured and dispensed medicines as well as the shop in which those medicines were sold. In today’s episode, we are going to talk about simple ways you can use essential oils to build your own home apothecary and medicinal preparations or remedies. Because you are capable of taking great care of your health. Some basic tools you will want to have to start with include:
Tools to get started:
Some of my favorite places to shop for essential oil supplies and resources are https://www.oillife.com and https://www.shareoils.com.
For essential oils and diffusers, you can reach out to me directly at email@example.com and I will personally respond. If you decide to work with me, I can help you decide which oils you personally need to start with and also add you to my exclusive online support community of over 1100 enthusiastic oil members.
If you are looking to explore the potential of essential oils for health + wellness but don’t know where to start, then I want to make sure you know that I have a free 45-minute Essential Oils Made East virtual workshop designed just for you – someone who is passionate about purity and living an empowered life. You want the best. You want the safest. You want the purest and most effective products in your home, not only as a consumer but as a mother – I hear you! Those are all very important to me too! Essential oils were a huge part of our health journey as a family and still are today. I get so many messages and tags on social media from moms shouting the blessings of these plant-powered gifts God created.
Drugs you have for each thing – right? You usually get the drug for just one thing and that’s it. Oils work with body systems which all work together and so that’s why you can use them for so many different things. So if you’ve been wanting to ditch the side effects and are considering essential oils as a natural solution but you haven’t taken the leap yet to start building your own home apothecary, then I’d like to invite you to attend my workshop. My goal is simply to educate and empower you so that you can make an informed decision on whether essential oils are even a good fit for you and your family. Totally no pressure and if you’d like a free sample to go along with the workshop to make it an interactive experience you can opt for that in the link in the show notes: bit.ly/oilsmadeeasyworkshop
I’m going to teach you how to work with them and use them on your own! I am going to help you understand the power of essential oils (because it just looks like water in those little bottles, right?). And if you’ve ever thought that essential oils were overwhelming or complicated or that they don’t work, I would probably argue that somebody didn’t take the time to come up with a specific plan and how they would be helpful for you and how you would use them, or the purity of the brand you tried was compromised in some way.
Check out the link in the show notes to take the first steps towards getting access.
