Essential oils can help to promote healing in your body, whether it’s emotional or physical.
My husband J. L. Geiger MD, the OilMD, and I have recently started teaching classes on “Reinventing Healthcare With Essential Oils.” I believe that allopathic (traditional) medicine is a need, don’t get me wrong there are times when we do need to see a doctor.
I believe in yearly check-ups, yearly blood work as we get older, like mammograms, and if what we are doing at home isn’t working or we didn’t start soon enough with the alternative approach you may need to seek medical advice. There maybe those times; we’ve all gone to a doctor.
Still, I like to think that when people learn about the healing systems of their bodies they will feel confident and have the wisdom that is needed to care for themselves and their families. This would eliminate the overuse of medical services and their cost for those services.
As we put the effort forth to have the basics in place , my favorite is the Family Physicians Kit, for ourselves and our families, we will all be healthier and happier. I’ve found wonderfully scented oils with the chemical constituents in them that are so powerful that they can reach your cells. That means they have the potential to change your DNA.
How to Select Essential Oils
The oils that we use are CPTG essential oils, not the ones you can find at the Dollar Store or the fragrance in a can or a plug-in that they say freshens your home. These are not pure nor therapeutic. The fragrance companies may use a portion of a plant to get the scent they are looking for, but using a plant to get their scent really doesn’t say much.
The plant itself has to be pure, and whether or not you use just the flower or the whole plant is another important step, it also has to be harvested at just the right time, and distilled in just the right way. Then it has to be tested on several levels before you can put the CPTG label on it.
To select pure essential oils it is important to check the company and their standards for the oils they manufacture and you purchase.
HOW TO BEGIN USING ESSENTIAL OILS
The way I started using essential oils when I wasn’t very familiar with them was just to start using them. The first step was by purchasing those oils that would help with the symptoms and aliments we were experiencing right then. I researched what oils would be good for myself, my husband and my three children and I started with those.
My suggestion would be to get a good diffuser and a good carrier oil along with several essential oils. You can now begin diffusing these essential oils and start using them topically as a therapy for yourself and your family.
This is the beginning stage of transforming the way you handle aliments you are experiencing now and becoming more pro-active with preventative healthcare in your family.
