Essential oils are a vast and interesting subject that have been getting a lot of attention lately. They certainly aren't a new subject. They've actually been in use for thousands of years, but have been rapidly gaining popularity in the last several decades. With all the chemicals, additives, and unknown ingredients in so much of the product market today, many people have turned to essential oils for a natural alternative for everything from cleaning, to skincare, to first aid. But where do you start?
I participated in an Introduction to Essential Oils Class here at the shop, taught by Amanda Murphy from Wellness Paths, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who's interested in exploring essential oils. It was an excellent opportunity to ask questions, experience the aromas of some of the oils, and discuss the every day uses. But most importantly, the safety of the use of essential oils was properly explained.
Essential oils have many amazing properties, but it's necessary to remember that they're highly concentrated, and need to be used mindfully. With few exceptions, essential oils shouldn't be applied directly to the skin. And some essential oils are contraindicated with certain health conditions. But all of these concerns were covered very well in the class, and I left feeling much more confident about my ability to experiment and explore the world of essential oils.
