My wife said a young lady was coming over to show us essential oils, and I said why? “Because they do everything and they smell good” was her response. I really had no reason to object, so the journey began. I learned a lot over that first 60 minutes, most of it I didn’t believe. A skeptic, I was called; and I agreed.
You see, I come from a medical background. My wife and I are both Registered Nurses of 30 plus years with significant experiences in Critical Care, Burn Units and Wound Care. Medications have indications and mechanisms of action. So, if you tell me something is good for stress, I want to know why. If you say it’s good for inflammation, I want to know how. If you tell me, it’s good for wound healing, you better be able to tell me about the stages of wound healing. I spent years working in wound healing.
What I could agree on was that they did, in fact, smell nice. Then a few simple observations occurred over the next few weeks. Hmmm… Lavender at night and I slept better. I am a poor, poor sleeper. A little roller ball concoction of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, and carrier oil and my lower back discomfort improved. OK, little by little, I began to learn more. I dug the web for free online education, some even factual. I looked at valid studies to provide some level of evidence based support. I began to learn that each oil has a distinct profile. I bought and began to study a great book called “Essential Oil Safety”. I learned that safe use is paramount in understanding this area of folk medicine, and internal use should never be recommended unless by a licensed medical professional.
So, here we are today, a small online business focused on quality and education. We are resellers of oils, diffusers and accessories. We partner with companies that provide both quality and fair pricing. We are not a multi-level marketing venture. We believe that our partners should know where their oils come from, know their distillers and offer both quality control proof, and fair pricing. Additionally, our partners need to be ecologically responsible and participate in fair labor standards and practices.
Thank you for finding out how we got here. How did you get here? Please help support our small business and we look forward to seeking Health, Wellness and Transformation together.
