Are Essential Oils Sustainable Making Your Own Essential Oils From Home What Exactly ARE Essential Oils? Essential oils are all around us! Take a walk outside and you’ll be instantly surrounded by essential oils living within the botanicals that make up our world. They’re the wonderful aromatics floating in the air from flowers, trees, bushes, and grasses. They live in the branches and needles of the pine trees you lay under, in the blades of grass you walk on, in the roses that you smell, and the peppermint leaves you touch. They play a vital role in a plant’s ability to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Without their essential oils, plants would not survive. Their primary roles in plant biology are that of disease resistance, predatory defense, and being attractants for pollinators. Research shows that essential oils can provide many benefits to humans and animals. Essential oil molecules are very small and very volatile (meaning their molecules rise rapidly into the air). This makes them very distinct from fatty oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, etc. which are very greasy and absorb slowly into the skin. The small molecular structure of essential oils makes them very unique in their ability to absorb rapidly into the skin, penetrate cells, and even travel past the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to enter brain tissue. When we look at healing modalities throughout history we can see a vast history of essential oils as a go-to staple for health, dating back to 4500 BC. There are over 188 references to essential oils in the Bible alone (Cinnamon, Cassia, Myrrh, and other oils were signs of wealth and status in biblical times and would often be used to anoint the wealthy and powerful. The Three Wise Men brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.) These oils were valued more than gold and were revered for their health-promoting properties. The Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian document, is cited as the world’s first “medical literature.” Created around 1550 BC, it is the largest record of ancient Egyptian medicine in known existence. It contains over 700 plant-based recipes and remedies, many of which would have been derived crudely in essential oil form. Today, there are tens of thousands of studies researching the diverse benefits of essential oils. This show is here to empower you to use these amazing natural tools safely and confidently.

For the majority, their immune system can recognize biotoxins, break them down, and eliminate them. In the genetically susceptible, their immune system can’t identify the biotoxin or eliminate it. The biotoxin remains in the body, damaging cells, and promoting immune dysfunction. This leads to systemic inflammation causing a myriad of symptoms across many systems of the body. This episode deep dives into biotoxin illness, MARCons, ...

What do you do when every doctor gives you a different diagnosis? Every shaman? Every practitioner? Our guest, Amy Stein was told by everyone that she had attributes of lyme, hashimotos, lupus, you name it. No one was helping her the way she needed. Everyone had their own idea of what she was doing “wrong” or what was “wrong” with her body. After years of self study with oils, plants, the body, and nature, Amy went on a phenomenal ...

Dementia. It can be so painful to talk about this disease. Today we want to bring some encouraging tips and tools to bring joy to you and your loved ones challenged by dementia. This week, Lori Tisdale helps us understand how dementia cuts off the communication from brain to body. The brain constantly communicates to the body about how to function: when to eat, sleep, use the restroom, etc. When the brain is affected with a disease...

For most of us we live the luxury of being able to simply drive down to a store and get our much needed amenities like shampoo, toothpaste, eggs, bandaids, or let’s face it- sometimes just a midnight snack of doritos (just me?). But what about those times where you’re traveling to places like our guest Ronee Collins has been to?  What if you found yourself deep in the jungle of a place like Peru?  What would you bring with you on y...

Endo…what? Are you or anyone you know suffering from debilitating abdominal, leg, lower back, or even chest pain? Do you have especially bad cramps around your menstrual cycle? Even if you have seen doctors about your pain, and they claim it’s just a “painful period,” you might want to investigate further. This week’s episode dives deep into the misunderstandings that often happen around an incredibly common disease called Endometr...

Flower Essences! How have we done this show for so long without yet covering this topic? I’m so glad to have Kerry Hughes back on the show to finally dive into this modality of plant use. It’s been a long time coming, and this conversation fits so perfectly into our deep dive into the power of plants as of late. What is the difference between Flower Essences and Essential Oils? After this interview I now understand where these two ...

This week’s episode dives into how the body can learn to be healthy. It can learn how to vibrate at the frequency it needs to in order to be healthy- healthy now, and in the future. To do this we rely on knowledge that’s over 5,000 years old, gained through studies in acupuncture, the balancing of the meridians, and energy work. Today we talk about the body on a cellular level, where everything is vibrating- right down to our cells...

Birth Control. Let’s talk about it. If you’ve ever tried to get pregnant, or gone out of your way to be sure not to get pregnant, my guess is you’ve either been on some form of hormonal birth control, or considered it. Doctors quickly prescribe “the pill” for issues from family planning, cramps, and even for acne (though let’s be honest… the pill can often cause acne)! But there’s a growing consensus on this drug: hormonal birth co...

Have you ever been outside- sun shining, birds chirping- when suddenly a particular kind of contentment washes over you? I get that feeling all the time, and usually chalk it up to just being away from the house, or work, and stress. But after meeting our guest this week, Gina Bria, I’m beginning to think that the euphoria I often feel outside, may in fact have more to do with the plants that I’m around than anything else. Gina tak...

Have you ever gone outside of your comfort zone and find yourself so glad you did? That’s what happened to me this week when I said “yes” to an interview with BioProtein Technology’s Dustin Baker. I realized that when I hear the term “Human Growth Hormones” I have a knee-jerk reaction. That reaction really comes from a lack of knowledge. What exactly are human growth hormones, and why is there such a buzz over them? Dustin and I di...

Candida has so many different symptoms and it can often get missed by doctors. Yeast overgrowth symptoms can be extreme, and most people don’t know it could be Candida. This week we talked with an absolute warrior, Jordan Combs, about her fight with Candida. At first, I thought that she would be sharing how her journey with doctors finally helped her heal from a debilitating case of Candida, but after our interview, it was obvious ...

Our guest this week is the epitome of love! Her website even ends with .love instead of .com which I just… LOVE! Marcela Benson sees life as an invitation. There is no dogmatic way to “be healthy” or happy. Instead of telling people what they should or shouldn’t do in order to live healthier lives, she wants to inspire and invite others to explore and learn and grow with compassion and curiosity. Her newest book Love, Peace, and Ve...

Have you ever gone to pick up an oil just because your gut told you to? You’re not sure why that oil is calling to you, but it just feels right? That’s your intuition, and I’m recommending we all start to trust it way more! The next time you’re feeling drawn to an oil, commit to using it, then look that oil up. I bet you more often than not that the description of that oil and its common uses and purpose are exactly what you needed...

How did we get here? To the dopamine era?  Doesn’t it seem like as time goes on, our society relies on dopamine more and more? Our guest this week, Dr. Susan Peirce so smartly points out that dopamine is not the molecule of pleasure, it’s the molecule of MORE.  When you’re hooked, you’re using substance just to feel okay.  And this substance is everything from your Starbucks habit, to smart phones, tv, and cigarettes. Today we focu...

We live in a culture that has a lack of self care. Luckily, this is starting to change, but a lot of us grew up in a time where “self care” was not a part of the common vernacular. Until now, people weren’t opening up about depression and suicidal idiation, but it’s all too common to feel this way. This can come from trauma such as sexual violence. Our guest Alex of Radical Well Beings opens up about the contributing factors to the...

Kill them all! When it comes to oral health, outdated technology and science has convinced us that our goal is to KILL THEM ALL!  Or at least 99.99% right?  I’m talking about bacteria.  We all grew up with ads and products targeted towards annihilating bacteria.  But honestly, that science is so outdated.  Sterilization has become a way of handling our health, which is a very western way of thinking, and quite intense.  We are cond...
