There are so many components to good health and natural living. But some get in the way of others. Is it possible essential oils are detrimental to you natural lifestyle?
What does a natural lifestyle mean to you?
That’s actually kind of tough to answer when you really think about it. There are so many components of a natural lifestyle. Sometimes so many that it’s overwhelming!
Essential Oil Boom
One aspect of natural living that has really grown in recent years is the use of essential oils.
When I first started this journey over six years ago that was not a term I had ever heard. Now it seems that every other friend is selling them.
I love seeing so many people feeling the pull towards a better way of living! It is so encouraging.
A Big Problem
There is just one glaring problem I see with essential oils.
I see someone post a picture on Facebook of their current diffuser blend (usually some sort of stress relief for themselves or calming for their kids). The next post is of their hyper children with blue-stained faces from candy or neon-colored crackers.
Anybody else see the irony there??
Head over to Kitchen Stewardship where I’m sharing my thoughts on the down side of essential oils.
Then let me know what you think! Do you use essential oils? How large of a role do they play in your lifestyle?
