Healing Powers of Essential Oils
from the Bible Making a Comeback
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed the essential oil craze sweeping the nation. Chances are, you’re wondering whether these oils are helpful or a bunch of baloney.
Get the Right Stuff
Dr. Josh Axe says if you choose one of the certified organic essential oil brands on the market today, you can expect positive results. However, he warns against lower quality synthetic and altered oils, saying they may actually do more harm than good. That’s because artificial fragrances are linked to a multitude of serious health concerns including infertility, obesity lung disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and Alzheimer’s Disease.
He says plug-in air fresheners, perfumes touted by celebrities and scented candles are terrible for our overall health, not to mention laundry detergents and other household cleaners that contain synthetic fragrances. He says research shows the chemicals in personal care items like lotions, deodorants, shampoos, and toothpaste pose health problems, too.
