How to correctly use essential oils.
I’m always willing to help out local entrepreneurs. Sometimes they have some great products that I’d like to use.
With my background in herbology, I was especially interested in what she had to say about essential oils.
I was aghast. She was plopping drops of essential oils in everyone’s mouths like it was diet soda and using a roll-on applicator to smear it on people.
Well, I found this to be not only disconcerting but felt that it was a pretty dangerous practice.
I couldn’t see a doctor inviting people to his living room to try out all the different medicines.
“Here you go, this is the latest anti-biotic. Just swallow this and tell me what you think.”
I spent two years getting my certification in herbology studying anatomy and physiology as well as diagnosis and treatment with herbs.
Essential oils are pharmaceutical grade herbal remedies. They are extremely powerful and it bothers me not a little bit when an entrepreneur becomes the doctor because they have something to sell.
Now don’t get me wrong. I am happy that these powerful healers are still available without prescriptions. I hope they remain so.
I’m also glad that there are reputable companies that offer quality products and can back it up.
So yes, there needs to be entrepreneurs who will sell them to the people that need them.
Even pharmaceuticals have their sales people.
But it behooves those entrepreneurs to become really educated about their products and know what they are talking about.
Too often I see someone on FB complaining of an ailment and somebody inevitably recommends an essential oil as a cure knowing little more than a less-than 140 character post on Facebook.
People, you need to stop doing this.
Your job as a sales person is to offer education and let the person make their own decisions.
Here is a little slideshare that will help you recommend wise use of essential oils.
Leave me a comment below to let me know if you have something to add.
If you’re really interested in obtaining some of these wonderful healing oils, send me a message on Facebook. I have a great source for high quality essential oils.
