Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It can be used in acute and chronic conditions. Homeopathic medicines can be taken sublingually, topically and are available for injections. The medicines are dilutions of substances from nature i.e., plants, minerals and other sources. Most are readily available over the counter and have been a system of medicine for over 200 years.
Essential oils (EO’s) are just that…essential liquids inside a plant that deliver the nutrients and oxygen through the stems and leaves. Consider it analogous to our blood. Without it neither plant life or human life would exist. Essential oils are the aromatic, volatile liquids that can be extracted by careful steam distillation. By doing so, they become extremely concentrated.
In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends toward more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications. Therapeutic essential oils can be applied topically, inhaled and in some cases ingested. Some are very effective in relieving musculoskeletal pain, headaches, nausea and enhancing sleep. They are beneficial in so many ways.
