Oils. Concentrated small drops of plant extracts used for medicinal purposes. Some people swear by them. Some people haven’t given them a fair shake. But it’s hard for me to ignore God’s natural healing methods when they are put straight in front of me.
I use essential oils regularly, but not religiously. I put them in the diffuser, I use them on my face for acne control, and I use them for aches and pains or PMS. But sometimes my aches and pains (and let’s face it-my PMS too!) exceed what the oils can handle. My aches and pains might dull with the use of oils, but they never go away completely.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love the way they smell. Most days, I love the way I feel when I use them, but they don’t work well enough for me to invest a lot of money. With the more popular brands you’ll be hard pressed to find a 10ml bottle that’s less than $30 (and that is the wholesale price). While it may last for 6 months, as often as I have to reapply it’s not worth spending that kind of money.
On the flip side, if you find brands that are $5-$15 per 10ml bottle you are most likely not purchasing a pure unadulterated essential oil. These have carrier oils incorporated which make the essential oil less strong and less pure. In english, that means they are watered down and probably won’t work as well.
Due to my health issues we are a one income household. That’s not a bad thing. In fact, it’s the old way. But in this day and age we live in a two income society, so there are many things we do without. We don’t drive fancy cars, we don’t live in a grand home, we don’t take vacations, but my Hero works hard, so we make every penny stretch as far as we can.
So I went on a quest to find the purest affordable essential oils. The brand I use is Edens Garden. Check out their site here. As they don’t have an affiliate program I’m not getting paid for this advertisement, but they truly are the best of both worlds.
They are grade A oils (unadulterated) and cost effective. The oils are strong and work as well as any oil on the market. This company believes in passing the savings onto the customer. So you’ll find their oils don’t break the bank. What I love about this company is they have oils in multiple sizes.
They offer a range from 5mil bottles to 250mil bottles. So those oils you use more than others, you can buy more at one time. And those oils you want to try but don’t want a full bottle, you purchase the smaller amount. Plus they have FREE shipping!
This company provides lots of versatility. I have been very pleased with their variety of oils as well as the accessories for incorporating oils into my home.
If you’ve been putting off trying essential oils try Edens Garden. It will give you an idea of whether or not these oils work for you without investing (what feels like) your life savings.
