Holistic wellness is at your fingertips. As winds howl and cold snowflakes bluster, consider the many natural wellness modalities you can choose from. If you’re like most ‘natural-nics’ you might not have considered pure essential oils and lava rock aromatherapy bracelets among your wellness options. Peppermint, Ylang Ylang and Lemongrass are just three examples.
Wellness categories beyond essential oils often include:
- Nutritional – vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids
- Herbal – plant-based herbs and botanicals selected for health benefits
- Homeopathy – animal, vegetable, and mineral substances taken in micro-doses for health benefits
- Hormonal – examples include melatonin and even vitamin D which is technically hormonal in nature
Often our dietary supplements combine the best of all worlds though how much have you benefited from pure essential oils? Not only are they useful to target common aches, pains, conditions, and stages of life, some even help clean your house! To be sure, there are so many to choose from. This modality is a complement to other wellness products you may have tried.
Now Consider Essential Oils
Plantlife Essential Oils are sustainably sourced from around the world. Why? Certain attributes are abundant from plants grown in native habitats. This brand prioritizes purity and potency and sources fresh herbs for efficacy.
Each quality oil is therapeutic grade through and through and trusted for aromatherapy purposes. Though pure throughout, they are not designed for ingestion. Inhale, diffuse or dilute the powerful oils in a plain carrier oil for topical use. This last point cannot be stressed enough as applying highly concentrated plant-based oils to your skin could have ill effects. Other deliveries include bath, massage, vaporizer and compression.
No additives are ever added to the prized oils as this would ruin the potential for accomplishing your goals. Who would want parabens, sulfates, or dyes in their esteemed essential oils? Nobody, that’s who. This brand never pollutes the high-quality products with anything.
Each is gluten-free, synthetic-free, non-GMO, and 100% pure oil. Additionally, they are cruelty-free and vegan.
How do we know essential oils are safe, healthy and work? Depending on the individual selection, the answer to this question might be historical use, anecdotal, or scientific research. Studies are ongoing and there is more to learn every day. Each plant’s oil content is a vast variety of compounds to be researched alone and in combination. Essential oil blends require expert insight that we know this brand offers. Sometimes combinations accomplish more than one oil at a time.

It is useful in general respiratory disorders as well, whether they are caused by microbes or allergies. Peppermint is known to relieve pain from toothaches, rheumatism, neuralgia, muscular pains, and painful menstrual cycles, due to its effects on the circulatory system.
Ylang Ylang Oil
