Essential Oils and Nature
Essential oils are highly concentrated oils derived from plants. They truly are nature’s natural defense and have become very popular in the marketplace. Beware of where you purchase your oils though because they are not regulated and not all can be ingested. Different types of oils include aromatics which can be diffused, topical such as applying peppermint to your forehead for a headache and internally which needs to be a certified therapeutic grade. You can also clean your house with essential oils, improve your sleep and much more!
Gretchen’s Favorite Oil Blends
Individual oils are great, but utilizing blends can help with so much more, including stress in the workplace. Gretchen’s favorite blends include Balance which has Frankincense in it. Fun fact: Frankincense and Myrrh were brought by the Three Wise Men when Jesus was born as a first aid. Ummmm...very cool, right?
