Every plant is a tiny apothecary, filled with hundreds of chemicals that aid its health, growth and survival. When these oils are properly extracted and used, they can enhance human health as well, with virtually none of the side effects that pharmaceuticals create. Furthermore, the complex nature of plant oils prevents microbes from developing tolerance to them like they often do with antibiotics. Lavender oil alone contains over 1200 components!
Inhaling essential oils is a wonderful way to begin exploring their health promoting benefits. Oil diffusers can be used in offices, sick rooms or anywhere in the home to greatly reduce airborne microbes. A pocket inhaler is indispensable for travel, especially on airplanes or in crowded places with stale air. Combinations of oils can effectively reduce microbes in the nose and throat and stimulate our own immune system to ward off infectious diseases. And when we do succumb to colds or flus, inhalers, along with topical rubs, can help eliminate viruses, decongest nose, throat and lungs and soothe spasmotic coughs, so we recover quicker.
I am now offering inhalers in my Etsy shop, made with high quality organic, authentic essential oils, formulated for synergistic effects. Stop by my shop and begin your exploration into the many benefits of these marvelous natural medicines.
