Natural Healing with Essential Oils

Did you know that essential oils are not just nice to smell but also have amazing healing properties? Many ailments can be treated with essential oils without any of the nasty side effects of drugs. Of course, there is a place for conventional medication but would you not rather try a natural form of healing first? I know I would and having experienced the incredible benefits, oils are my first port of call. You can use oils topically (rub them on the area where they are needed), aromatically (inhale them from the bottle, your hands or via a diffuser) and through ingestion (check for every oil that they are suitable for ingestion). Oils can work on a physical and emotional level. I recommend only using the best quality, therapeutic grade essential oils. The oils I use are from doTERRA and they are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils, ethically sourced from optimal geographic locations and soil conditions. Here are 10 of the essential oils I use most and some of their benefits:
