Plant-Based Solutions for Natural Living
A note from the artist, Kelly Brinkmann…
Essentail oils are a big part of my studio and home. Quality oils have been a game-changer to help me treat seasonal changes (good bye sneezing fits!), heal cuts or skin abrasions. Using plant-based solutions help me take proactive, intentional steps to support my immune system. I use clay diffusers and natual diffuser jewelry often. I diffuse oils while I sketch, study and work to help me focus and chill out. After making artwork, I use lavendar to treat my skin that has been dried out by clay.
What to Look for When Researching Essential Oils
It seems essentail oils are everywhere these days, but when I saw them in the dollar bin and at so many different places, I was prompted to research where the plants for essential oils are grown, who owns the fields, how the plants and oils are tested for purity (even by independent labs) and what oils are certified non-GMO. I found the best oils for our family.
Why I started Using Essentail Oils
I was looking for different ways to treat changes in seasons and a friend told me about using the Young Living brand of essential oils in the starter kit. It contains their most popular oils plus a diffuser with alternating power settings and LED lights, including a candle-flicker setting. I decided to order the kit because I simply had to find better solutions for better health. I was cautious at first and I asked a LOT of questions and did research; the more I used them, the more I loved what they did for my whole body. Once I learned a great recipe for spring and fall flare-ups, I wondered what else I could address with plant-based oils.
Solutions for Our Family
Our son had ear pain after swimming and I found a DIY roller-bottle recipe in that worked great to give him relief. I have never excluded traditional medicine, but I have found ways to help me and our family and support our own immune health. I have learned a lot of info (including our son’s DIY recipe!) in a private essential oils FB group with others where I can search for solutions, tips and recipes to help our family. If you do not already use essentail oils, grab your starter kit today and start making intentional steps to start learning to help yourself and your family. When you grab a starter kit with my referral link I will add you to our essential oils FB group so we can learn more together.
