Essential Oils

T here are so many essential oils to choose from, no matter the situation. There are some which I have been using for many things: lavender, rosemary, peppermint. Some of them, I discover through my herbal medicine guy, who is also into aromatherapy. I go for an annual checkup with an MD and an alternative medicine practitioner. I get my blood taken and tested, I give blood (if everything’s okay with the test), and I get a quasi-physical done by both. I am young enough to be able to skip over major things, and being in shape doesn’t hurt either.

I try and keep my body in motion, take steps instead of elevators, and stay away from certain foods. I believe that as long as you keep things in moderation, there is a good chance you will be able to beat the odds. But, then again, there is a lot you can’t factor in, because we just don’t know. Maybe I will live to a ripe old age, with my mind and body in tact. Maybe not. All happens as the Force wills it.

There are no magical solutions here. You can’t expect to be in perfect health and prime condition, if you mistreat yourself. There are exceptions to every rule, but generally speaking it is a difficult thing to keep up. You need to keep things under your control, because if you don’t, it could be to your detriment. I am not trying to scare you. I don’t have to. You don’t need to be a scientist to see what people are dying from these days. No, sir. Honeydew products is your one stop shop to begin your healthy lifestyle.

Essential oils seem like such a small change, but in fact they can make a significant difference. There is a lot that goes on under the surface. Literally, under the surface of our skin. We need to start focusing some more on what goes on under the hood of our ride, our vessel, our body. It is the most important tool we have, and it is up to us to keep it as healthy as can be. There is a lot controversy over what healthy really is. Take the food group pyramid for example. It is affected by Corporate America’s needs and desires. No point in denying that. The dairy and meat industries are huge. They have a lot of say, and that’s no joke. And there is no point in denying it, either.

How can we be sure that what we are doing is the best thing for us? We can’t. All we can do is try to be more aware of what it is that our bodies are trying to signal to us. We need to let our food be our medicine, as much as possible, and to trust out feelings. The next time you have a headache, try inhaling some sage instead of popping an advil. This is how healing starts. I am not complete abstinence from modern medicine, but I am saying more awareness of ourselves and our bodies.
