"I believe that for every illness or ailment known to man, that God has a plant out here that will heal it. We just need to keep discovering the properties for natural healing.”

•Essential Oils and Medication/Medical Conditions
Such an important topic, for example, did you know not to inhale peppermint if you have a history of seizures?
(includes pregnancy information)
•Essential Oils and Pet Safety
•Effective Essential Oil Use
•Diluting Essential Oils
(They tested three oils from each of the major essential oil companies and their finding are in this report. They also have a lot of good information in the section called "Helpful Information About Essential Oils." )
•Cleaning your diffuser
•Emotions and Essential Oils by Enlighten- learning more about each oil's benefits makes me want to use them for my needs and create gifts for others and this is probably my most favorite resource.
•Modern Essentials by Aroma Tools- this was the first book I bought on oils and it is a great resource for help with physical symptoms (it has a whole index sorted by issue), a history of essential oils, and you can learn about the chemical constituents, properties and ways to apply and use each oil. There are many different editions and pricing (I have the 8th edition) and the link is for the 11th edition released in 2019.
•doTERRA's Facebook Page– they are always sharing information and sales/specials like BOGO
•Elena Brower on Instagram and her facebook group: Essential Education– make sure you watch her stories as she always inspires me with her diffusing blends and information and her facebook group is full of great learning topic videos. I also enjoy Aromahead's posts on Instagram.
Hope you found this post helpful and don't hesitate to reach out to me and if you want to know more about my essential oil journey you can read that here.
Happy to help!

Please note: I've been learning about essential oils since October 2016. I am a wellness advocate for doTERRA and can help you with learning about and purchasing certified therapeutic grade essential oils. I am not an aromatherapist or medical doctor and none of this is intended to be medical advice in any way. I'm just sharing what I know at one moment in time and encourage you to always discover and research on your own and your choice to use essential oils is at your own risk.
