Do you know there are two kinds of consumer products out there? Hi, it’s Shinko, and I’m passionate about living a natural lifestyle. You may have guessed it, but some are made from synthetically produced ingredients, and others are manufactured from natural resources. Synthetic products are usually cheaper, more potent and faster-acting. On the other hand, natural products are more expensive yet gentler without fillers or irritants, smell much better with no artificial fragrance and safer from any possible side effects.
Which products do you prefer to shop for?
At one point in my life, I confess I was one of those who preferred pharmaceutical drugs and synthetic products to natural ingredients and resources. I still remember the time our youngest son was a baby. Alas, he was so colicky that he used to spit up everywhere. Do you know what we used to clean up the messes? Antibacterial wipes because I felt I needed something potent to sanitize our home. Remembering back then, I was paranoid about germs and viruses to the core.
A sudden realization hit me when our oldest daughter got diagnosed with severe inflammation of the colon called C-Diff Colitis. According to her pediatrician, though the cause was not absolute, it was most likely from the overuse of prescribed antibiotics for her previous colds and sinus infection! Thus, those antibiotics possibly killed more of her body’s “good” bacteria and weakened the immune system.
As I researched, I found out the unwanted side effects of commercial cleaning supplies. The overuse of antibacterial cleaning products, including disinfectants in the home, might lead to antibiotic-resistant superbugs’ birth! Honestly, I had no idea these antibiotics and antibacterial products, in other words, synthetic chemicals, could make our daughter – well, I should say all of us – sick!
What did I learn from this experience? It’s better to use natural products for a healthy living if possible. And avoid using antibacterial products or harsh chemicals unless I have a specific medical reason to do so.
Essential oils are not as different. There are synthetic essential oils and 100% natural, therapeutic grade essential oils. Synthetic oils are cheaper, mostly store-sold and filled with chemicals that imitate real and natural essential oils. As it happens, the synthetic materials in oils can potentially harm our health when applied, ingested or diffused.
But how do you know if these oils are not real? Unfortunately, it’s tricky because, by regulation, only 5-10% of the entire bottle has to be pure to get labelled as pure essential oils. That means the rest can be olive oil, synthetic chemicals, fillers and artificial fragrance. Thus, the regulation is designed for the manufacturers to produce these oils for their financial benefits, not for our health benefits. No wonder most essential oils out there are perfume graded or, even worse, rose water disguised as essential oil!
How about the oil you’ve got? It is from the company called Young Living Essential Oils, which produces the best essential oils in the world! What’s the difference between Young Living oils and the other ones you find elsewhere? Young Living exercises a rigorous quality control called “Seed to Seal,” that is the difference. From the seed that grows the plant to the harvesting to the distillation and the bottle’s sealing, they do it all! In other words, Young Living is in control of everything.
With that being said, I am also proud to say that Young Living is the only essential oil company in the world that owns and operates their farms. When I first heard about it, I got blown away because no other essential oil company does all, including farming and producing.
To ensure purity, the oil is extracted only through steam distillation. And no pesticides or herbicides are used for the field or plants. The farm staff pick weeds by hands or spray essential oils onto the plants to ward off bugs! Why goes through all the trouble to ensure purity? Because they care about our health and wellbeing!
Therefore, you can rest assured that the Thieves oil you have is 100% pure and free of synthetics or chemicals to affect your health, possibly. Registered with Health Canada as a Natural Health Product to guarantee the therapeutic quality, Thieves is effective in strengthening the immune system naturally.
With this in mind, we use Thieves essential oil and the oil-infused products to combat germs today. And guess what? In doing so, we don’t get sick often and hardly go to walking clinics for medical assistance. Are you interested in learning how to use the oil to strengthen your immune system?
