You can replace many things you now use from your medicine cabinet with safer and more effective essential oils. There are 9 reasons why high-quality essential oils are superior to those patented and pricey drugs and over-the-counter products that so many unfortunate people depend on to control their chronic conditions.
1. Essential Oils Have a Longer, More Complex and Proven History
For thousands of years, aromatic molecules from plants have been adapting, protecting, energizing, and working together with the world of beneficial and toxic bacteria, fungi and viruses. The cells of your body recognize a natural aromatic substance and know what to do with it. Your body may not recognize or be able to effectively use a synthetic one. Nature’s purpose in giving us aromatic molecules is to bring us vitality, harmonious balance, and protection.
2. Essential Oils Will Not Encourage “Superbugs”
Bacteria can mutate to form resistant strains of “superbugs” to outwit the toxic, synthetic, antibiotic drugs. Living, un-patentable, aromatic oils have never created a superbug. Scientists are now turning to essential oils to fight these fierce invaders because they realize that only nature can win the antimicrobial war with nature.
3. Essential Oils Will Not Produce Side Effects
You’ve seen the pages of horrible-sounding side effects that follow every pharmaceutical advertisement. You know the extreme dangers of drug reactions. You’ve heard of the drug recalls that occur each year. Would you prefer using nature’s complex essential oils with multiple health benefits and virtually no side effects?
4. Essential Oils Bring Vitality to Your Body
Would you prefer using simple, man-made synthetic drugs whose only function is to block and kill? Or would you prefer complex, natural substances designed by nature and proven safe through centuries of use? Have you ever felt mentally and physically exhausted after taking a round of synthetic antibiotics or other drugs? You won’t feel that way after completing a protocol of essential oils.
5. Essential Oils Work in Many Ways All at Once
The complex synergies of essential oils improve your mood, strengthen multiple systems of your body, and do not disrupt the delicate balance of your beneficial bacteria. They can stop pain, reduce inflammation, stop muscle spasms, decongest, destroy microbes, and calm anxiety—all at the same time. They spread throughout the body bringing vitality and life. Synthetics only block body functions and kill pathogens, leaving their toxic waste behind. Synthetics are like a hammer hitting a single nail and often missing and hitting your thumb.
6. Essential Oils Can Enter The Body by Many Avenues
What do you have in your medicine cabinet now that can be diffused, added to your food, inhaled, added to bath water, added to your tea, and applied in a massage or under your nose? Essential oils are more complex and creative than synthetics. They can work on all these interfaces at once. If for some reason one doesn’t work for you, there’s always another one that can be used. And these different therapies work synergistically with each other multiplying their effectiveness.
7. Aromatic Plants Tell Us by Their Aroma What They’re Good for
We are familiar with the toxic, disgusting smells of decaying, rotting foods that make us want to avoid them and discard them. The alluring aromas created by nature in spices, mints, citrus, and evergreen forests tell us that these substances are designed by nature to combat the bad microbes that cause decay and spoilage. Synthetics don’t offer these natural signals. In fact, they’re more often synthesized from fungus and disgusting smelling petrochemicals. What does that instinctively tell you about the safety of their long-term use?
8. The Pleasure of Essential Oils Makes Us Want to Use Them Continually
What pleasure is there in taking a synthetic drug? You would never want to use one when you’re well. But it’s not the same with essential oils. Even when you’ve completed essential oil therapy, you can continue using the essential oils on a daily basis throughout your life.
9. “Nature is Complex So We Don’t Have to Be”
Aromatic plants produce hundreds of thousands of complex aromatic molecules. Mortals struggle to classify and put to use this vast complexity. Without even knowing how they are functioning in your body or all the different things they may be doing, you can be confident, knowing that they are doing their magnificent work, restoring what is injured and bringing life and health. What simplistic synthetic can do that?
How do you know if an oil is pure non synthetic therapeutic and safe to ingest? I know the bottle has to be dark colored and it should say therapeutic and give the plant original name however, I want top quality oils. Are they all different if the above is all in place? Prices are so different. Young farms is extremely expensive but I think it’s all they do and they grow their own plants. Is this the best way to buy? New to essential oils and want to use for effectiveness and purity. Going green. Need advice.

There are many ways to tell if an essential oil is pure or not. First is by looking at a gc/ms report supplied by the company. It should be supplied on the website and you shouldn’t need to ask for it. You should also be able to find out where the oil came from, it’s Latin name and common name, how it was distilled (steam, press, etc), what plant part it came from to name a few. If you have a bad feeling about a company, don’t buy from them. There are plant of wonderful companies to buy from that are not MLM’s.
