My Intro to Essential Oils
Guys, I've been keeping a secret. I'm oily. LOL.
I've been using Essential Oils almost daily for the past few months. They've become such a normal thing that I forget that oils are still kind of a mystery to a lot of people.
I took the same approach as I did with starting Keto in that I took my time and got comfortable with my starter kit before really talking about Essential Oils, how much I love them, and how valuable they are to my everyday routines.
These oils are just as big a part of my journey into healing my body from the inside out as subscribing to the Keto Lifestyle. Oils and Keto work together!
Around this time last year, I started doing researching natural approaches to healing PCOS and hormones. Essential Oils and Keto popped up in almost every blog post that I read, but I wasn't ready to fully get into oils.
You know what made me dive head first into Essential Oils?
Learning about the link between cancer and environmental toxins. Learning about how the everyday toxins we consume, breathe, and absorb into our skin disrupt our hormones.
My jaw hit the floor when I learned that the percentages of people getting cancer from environmental toxins was significantly higher than people getting cancer because of genetics. When I learned that the toxicity from E V E R Y T H I N G in our environment, from our food to our washing machine detergent, is disrupting our hormones, I knew that this was a major cause to my PCOS and my hormone issues. I knew that it was time to clean it up when it came to what I ate, the household cleaners, and beauty products I used.
I'll be totally honest: I don't know everything about PCOS and essential oils. I'm committed, though, to learning and testing things out. I wholeheartedly believe that my internal healing will happen with a lot of prayer, my oils, and Keto.
That's how I got into oils! Realizing that I was the only thing in my way from being the person I wanted to be and having the life I want to have empowered me to dig in, learn new things, and try something different. Over the days ahead, I am going to continue sharing what I learn and what works for me and my hope is that this will encourage you to find what works for you, too. If you have any questions about oils, let me know! I love figuring this stuff out and I'm always looking for more oil pals! Happy diffusing - JJ
