If you’re interested in health and well-being, come join me at the SeekersHub Sydney Essential Oils Workshop this Sunday! This workshop is the brainchild of my sister-in-law, and I’m looking forward to learning more about the benefits of essential oils.

Being asthmatic, I generally stay away from strong scents. This means that I’m the one to sit in the back of the room (or exit completely!) when someone starts to burn strong incense or oud. I’m all for beautiful fragrances – the food of the angels, after all – but not when it triggers my asthma. I’d be interested to learn from the experts about the best way to use these essential oils when it comes to my sensitive lungs. The winter nights in Sydney are getting colder, and a holistic, natural approach to managing my asthma would help to supplement my existing asthma care plan.

I’ve had the blessing of sampling some of the fantastic oils from my sister-in-law’s selection. I must say, even my adorable 1 1/2 year old niece is enjoying them! Click here for the doTERRA website for more information about their essential oils range.

Here’s an interesting quote from the site:

Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians were some of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in beauty treatment, food preparation, and in religious ceremony. Frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh and cinnamon were considered very valuable cargo along caravan trade routes and were sometimes exchanged for gold.

Fascinating!
