Depending on whom you want to believe, there are upwards of 500 references to essential oils in the bible. The use of essential oils was one of the many wonderful things I was introduced to in my battle with breast cancer.
I use many in my daily life for various reasons. Some of my favorites are wintergreen, lavender, peppermint and thieves’ oil, but the inventory I have in my medicine cabinet is quite extensive.
I will go into my experience with them later, but rather than me writing about each one now, I looked for an easy source of information for you. When you do an Internet search on essential oils, you may find others that you find helpful, but this is one I have used: http://draxe.com/natural-remedies-category/essential-oils/
When you go to the Dr Axe site, you can sign up to receive his newsletter (no charge) and will be able to download his free eBook, “The Kings Medicine Cabinet.” This is a great way for you to start learning about essential oil uses, cures and recipes for healing.
There are many essential oil brands on the market, with a wide range of prices. If you are looking for oils for aromatherapy, you can get relatively inexpensive ones at your local health food store. For oils that are considered “therapeutic grade,” the choices are more limited. Again, you can do a search and find differing opinions on which brand is the best. I, personally, use Young Living Essential Oils, but have not tried the other top brands, so I can’t give a comparison.
LAFF2LIVE will soon have a store where you will be able to order Young Living Essential Oils and have them delivered right to your doorstep. Since these oils are not inexpensive, we are hoping to provide help for those who may not be able to afford them, by using donations from people in the LAFF Community.
More on that later, but for now, check out which essential oils may be right for you!
