Not seeing successes with your Essential Oils? Perhaps you jumped on the Essential Oil bandwagon only to realize that they aren’t as promising as they initially seemed to be?
That’s a common problem I hear with friends and family who get started. As someone who has used and relies on Essential Oils for several years, it’s easy to dive with great expectations only to realize that the experience wasn’t what you had hoped for.
So back to the drawing board you go.
And in the process, you proclaim that they don’t work – are a waste of time, and even more, are nothing but a gimmick.
I never always knew how much these little bottles could do – before I got started. But they have done some amazing things for our family. They work amazingly well for what we need them to do – but it doesn’t come without a greater understanding of essential oils in general.
#1 – You are not using them consistently
When you are using Essential Oils, consistency is KEY. You can’t expect them to work wonders if you are inconsistent – and when we say that you need to make them a regular part of your routine, that means you must reapply often.
Listen to your own body and reapply as needed.. and understand that Essential Oils are not a “one time use and that is it” remedy.
#2 – You are not using them correctly
In order to get the BEST results with your Essential oils, you can use them one of 3 ways ~
- Internally (ensure you are using therapeutic grade Essential Oils, not the low cost oils at the health store!)
The GOOD news is that a quality reference book will help you learn which was is the preferred method for your preferred results, and based on your circumstance.
#3 – You are not using Quality Essential Oils
When it comes to Essential Oils, there are a LOT of places you can buy them. They are not all made the same.
Remember… that many Essential Oils you find in store are merely fragrance oils – and should never be applied to your body OR ingested.
These oils are created as synthetic substances – the smell is a mere imitation, but the therapeutic properties are not present. You’ll want to make sure you are using real quality, therapeutic grade essential oils – we recommend Young Living.
While there are many companies and brands out there, we recommend Young Living because not only do they have their own fields, they have a Seed to Seal promise that ensures that they are providing oils that are genuine, free of synthetics and of unmatched purity.
#4 – You are NOT Taking Care of Yourself
Oils are just ONE part of wellness – you’ll also want to make sure you are following a good diet, getting rest and taking care of yourself. All of those areas work together for your OWN personal wellness.
The same goes for your kids.
If you are using Oils on your children and not seeing good results, take a look at the other areas – are they eating well? Hydrating sufficiently? Resting properly?
#5 – Essential Oils DO NOT work Miracles
I believe that ALL of these items – from diet, to environment, and even lifestyle ALL work together with Essential Oils – and together, they can be a wonderful alternative to traditional medicine.
There is a time and place for everything, and prescriptions do have their place; just perhaps not for common things that we could have prevented on our own.
Essential Oils can be an amazing asset when combined with your wellness regimen, they can be very effective – but by no means do they work miracles!
They are indeed an alternative choice to your health care, and can be a true asset for those who would rather take a different approach to their health aside from traditional medicine.
