The Adventure of Learning and Using Essential Oils Effectively (Part 1)

It is a way of using the amazing gifts nature has given us to safely and effectively support the body’s natural processes. Essential oils offer a natural way to experience these powerful benefits without needing an extensive education.

Here are a few basic guidelines to be aware of before starting your experience with essential oils:

  1. Everyone’s experience and response to the oils will vary depending on individual constitution and state of balance in the body. You may respond differently to the oils depending on your daily diet, exercise/activity levels, blood type, stress levels, and exposure to toxins. 
  2. Some individuals are more sensitive than others. Therefore, if you have never applied a particular oil directly to your skin, patch test it before use. Simply apply the oil on a small portion of your arm to determine your general response. Some oils—such as oregano, thyme, cinnamon bark, and cassia—are hotter in nature and should be diluted by using 1 drop of oil and 4 drops of V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex
  3. Those who are under a physician’s care or are pregnant, nursing, or taking general medications should consult with a health professional before using essential oils.

What Might Have Been

We lived in the most majestic place in Idaho—among the mountains. Where we lived, we were right at the foot of Twin Peaks, which was the second highest mountain in the state. We were 9 miles from it. Our hunting territory went from our home all the way to the Sawtooths in western Idaho, and it was just huge. I had ridden almost every mile of that country on a horse. It didn’t matter whether it was Rocky Mountain big-horn sheep that we hunted, or cougar, or bear, or elk, or big mule deer–it was all in our territory. We had such a phenomenal opportunity!

I had said, “Dad, if you will do this, I’ll take a full-time job from school, and I’ll make the payments on the loan; but they won’t make the loan to me at age 15.”

But he said, “No, I am not going to go into debt.”
