It seems like another lifetime when I had a classic medicine cabinet full of bottles of pink stuff, a variety of cold medicines, who knows what for pain and ointments for every type of skin issue.
And then I found essential oils.
My medicine cabinet is now full of pure, natural and effective remedies. I no longer have pink stuff for stomach aches, instead I have fennel and ginger essential oils. For headaches there is no more caffeine filled tablets because now I have peppermint and cypress essential oils. The ointment for cuts and burns is replaced by lavender. My list goes on and on.
I use essential oils for sleep, mood, physical ailments and household cleaning. My toxic load is greatly reduced, and am confident that the ingredients in each remedy that I use is something that I can easily pronounce and I know exactly what it is.
I believe in the power of western medicine and I am grateful that I have access to quality healthcare. I am also grateful that I have chosen to go back to plants for everyday health issues that arise.
Are you ready to revamp your medicine cabinet?
