Diluting Essential Oils

Dilution?!

I used to think… “no dilution for me… I want my oils full strength”. Boy was I wrong!

Did you know that when diluted even a little, your amazing oils are even MORE effective?!

It’s true!

Less evaporation … (aka flash off)

Deeper skin absorption !

Not to mention you lessen any risk of sensitivity.

And your oils last longer, saving you $$!

Check out these photos–one where this is no dilution and oil compounds stay on top of the skin (and some evaporating) … and it’s opposite showing dilution and deeper dermal penetration and absorption.

More On the Brain

The other day I made a post about how essential oils affect the brain and I wanted to continue on that post today. Another way that essential oils affect the brain is through our smell receptors that travel up to the olfactory bulb. These smell receptors make direct links to the limbic system, a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain.

The limbic system connects to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, hormone balance, emotion, and mood. Different chemicals in odor molecules cause different nerve impulses to be sent

Depending on the type and amount of essential oils used, different body reactions can occur. Certain essential oils trigger the brain to release specific neurochemicals such as endorphins, serotonin, and enkephalin. These substances reduce pain and inflammation, calm and relax the body, and create a feeling of well-being. This is why essential oils can be so helpful when using them aromatically!

You can use essential oils aromatically by just adding a few drops to your diffuser with water or you can breathe in the aroma out of cupped hands or from the bottle. You can add 1-3 drops to a tissue or cotton ball & inhale, and you can also wear oils as perfume or in diffuser necklaces to get the aromatic benefits!

Sometimes we forget that our bodies have the ability to stay healthy when given the proper tools—diet, exercise, sleep, reducing toxic load, reducing stress and more.

I love that essential oils play a huge part in my health—reducing toxic load, helping with sleep/stress, assisting with better breathing during exercise, flavoring my foods and giving my body a boost of goodness, helping to manage pain and so much more.

Oils are not going to cure anything, but they are going to help your body do it’s own part in the staying healthy. They are tools for your tool box and when used consistently and properly can have amazing effects. Plus it’s pretty darn empowering to take control of your healthy, naturally.

Investing in Yourself 

How many times have you thought that something for your health is “too expensive”…..consider looking at areas of your budget that you might be able to replace health with. The fast food for a homemade pot of soup (I guarantee cheaper, packed with flavor and at least two meals), the $5.00 coffee for making your own (using amazing and health benefiting essential oils), the weekend shopping trips for an afternoon of DIY natural skin care products? 

Trust me when I say I not only used to weigh 100 pounds more, but I was a toxic mess who also was in financial debt, tired all the time, ate crappy food, used toxic cleaners, didn’t honor my body AT ALL… I overcame it all with mindfulness—choices on where I was investing and I began investing in myself, rather than what I thought was important. 
You can too! I would love to walk the path of health with you!

Monday Mindfulness 

Good Morning and Happy Monday! 

It is my greatest belief that pausing to check in with yourself and become aware is our greatest tool in then knowing what we need or to recognize all that is good.

Pause. Take a breathe. Listen.
