Why I love Essential Oils in my Off Grid Life

Living off the Grid in my opinion, as I have said many many times, is all about being as self reliant as possible in ALL aspects of my life.

I like to know that we are in control of our own survival. That's why we manage our own power needs, our own water needs and as far as possible our own food needs. One of the biggest areas of surviving in life is obviously our own health. If we can't stay healthy we really can't cope with the day to day physical and emotional strains that this lifestyle can put you under.

I like to support our bodies by having an environment as clean as possible. We don't have chemicals in our water and we don't put chemicals on our food that we grow. And we avoid the synthetic chemicals that are in the pharmaceutical drugs.

I make a lot of different home remedies that work just as well, and quite often better than the prescription or over the counter medications. And they are NATURAL! When I make these home remedies they are always created with pure, organic ingredients.

I like to use Essential Oils in a lot of my home remedies because they are amazing in their ability to support the body to heal itself. They are also easily portable so that if a SHTF scenario ever did happen, they are able to be carried with us and take up very little room. We are able to have our own little medicine cupboard in a small bag that could make all the difference.

Essential Oils are also very economical. Just a drop of two is so potent that more isn't needed. Did you know, for example, that 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil is the same as 28 cups of Peppermint Tea? How incredible is that?

I will urge everyone I know to research the benefits of Essential Oils, to use the oils and to learn how to love the oils and what they can do for you. The more you learn, the more you will be amazed at their different qualities and how they can change your life from Awful to Awesome.

You can use Essential Oils in a number of ways. I like to diffuse them, which helps to cleanse the air in our house. It also helps your body because you are breathing in very small amounts of the oils, which in turn sends the benefits to every part of your body. Everybody that walks into my house, tell me how wonderful it smells and how calm it makes them feel.

I also like to add Essential Oils to lotions and potions that we apply to our skin. The oils will penetrate the skin and go to work quickly. I have found that small amounts of the oils can have such powerful effects on our sleep, our breathing, pain relief, etc etc. They are also very useful in creating household cleaning products that not only work a treat, but also make the house smell divine.

We also ingest some of the oils, obviously not all of them. The rule of thumb for me in this case is, if you wouldn't eat the plant that the oil comes from, then you wouldn't ingest it. For example I wouldn't eat Wintergreen, or Eucalyptus, or Tea Tree etc in our meals so I wouldn't ingest them as Essential Oils. However, I would eat Lemon, Peppermint, Oregano etc so I will ingest these ones, in tiny tiny amounts and not all the time, but I will do it.

We have proved to ourselves just how well they work and I would love you to educate yourself and start using the Essential Oils in your own life. It is never too late, or too soon to make them a part of your normal everyday life.

I only will use and recommend doTERRA essential oils because I love the company and what they are doing for so many people around the world. They are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade tested by third parties. They are honestly the best on the market and I trust them. Please contact me if you would like to start your journey with essential oils, using doTERRA, as I would love to show you how you can purchase them at wholesale prices. Or visit my doTERRA website

My main point of this article, is to get you thinking about ways you can be self reliant in your own self care. Living Off the Grid demands that you look after yourself and finding ways to do things for yourself is the most satisfying thing I love to do. Using natural ingredients is a must in my opinion. Stop using synthetics! Take control of your own life. Resized Image
