Benefits of Essential Oils

You might be wondering why we recommend Oil’s vs. Fresh foods… why wouldn’t you just use fresh ginger root or the spice cardamom, you might be wondering.

Well, we do love fresh but sometimes it’s more convenient to use the oil. Essential oils are very easy to travel with and keep with you when you are on the go. They also have a very long shelf life, so you don’t have to worry about them going bad. Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the skin, that being said, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes and be metabolized like other nutrients!

Essential oils are very powerful and effective and that is why we recommend them. However, we do encourage you use a mixture of fresh foods + Essential oils, that way you get the best of both worlds.
