Nourish with Essential Oils
Nourishing with Nature inside and out
My salt harvesting journey has revealed to me the importance of using pure, nourishing products to live a healthy, vibrant lifestyle. Our sea salt is pure, clean & fresh, and I'm always seeking out other products with the same qualities.
One of the products I've been drawn to that values purity, freshness & vibrancy is essential oils. Derived from plants, essential oils can help heal and protect the body. And the better the quality of the product, the better it's impact on your well-being. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you're shopping:
1. Know how the essential oil is made. Choose pure oils derived from plants, not synthetically made. This can be tricky because manufacturers are not required by law to disclose their production methods on packaging, so you may need to do some digging. A lower than expected price point is often a good hint that the oil may have been manufactured instead of derived from plants.
2. Buy from a shop that has lots of customers. Essential oils break down over time, so bottles that have been hanging out on store shelves long enough to collect dust probably have lost some of their effectiveness.
3. Pay attention to the packaging. Essential oils are strong, so strong that they can deteriorate the plastic bottles, nozzles, and dispensers! And light can deteriorate the quality of the oil too, so choose your High-quality oils sold in dark-colored glass bottles if possible.
4. Follow the directions. Many essential oils are very potent and can be harmful if not used properly.
The benefits of essential oils abound, so choose yours carefully and consult with experts about their proper use to take full advantage of the healing powers of nature.
