As part of my life change to move to China and start a life where I live a more healthy, mobile and technologically influenced life, it has been decided I'd take advice from my mom (who follows the naturopathic route, as much as possible), and purchased some essential oils from this company called dōTERRA.
This company produces essential oils from 100% natural ingredients with zero pesticides (organic is only requires 60-70% free of pesticides). The company also only buys the plants from where they naturally grow in the world.
These can be applied to the skin, roof of the mouth, drank in water or used as an air freshener. I attended a class with my mom and tried the oils and the work fast and last a long time. They can be used for everything from a body scent, to flavoured water to replacements for many nasty products we regularly use which are often petroleum based ie. Shampoo, creams, "medicines", cleaning products and many more, see photo below for a sample of the different oils, and what they can replace!
I I use the lemon to flavour my water and it tastes great! It can also aid in digestion, and is a great cleanser.
The second oil I purchased is the On Gaurd oil. It's a powerful detoxifier and helps build/maintain the immune system.
I'd highly recommend checking out their website at www.doterra.com for more information on this super high quality oil, it's everyday practical uses and it supports a company who is uber conscious about personal health.
