Essential Oils 101: Learn The Basics

The power of essential oils (EO’s) is real - and if you have been following me for awhile, you have likely heard me talk about them here and there. But have YOU made them part of your everyday life yet?

I’m going to lay out all of the basics so you can get on this one bandwagon, because it’s here for the long haul. And when you learn about the history of EO’s, you’ll know that they’re not even new. In fact, EO’s have been around for centuries!

Some essential oils come from seeds while many others are extracted from the leaves of the plant. Because EO’s are so highly concentrated, it takes a tremendous amount of plant to produce just one ounce of oil.

Due to this level of concentration, essential oils are incredibly powerful, so a little bit goes a long way!

Afterall, Hippocrates is famously credited with stating that “all disease begins in the gut”.

Several factors are thought to disrupt the normal intestinal environment and contribute to a leaking gut.

But what the heck is a “leaky gut” – and how do I know if mine is actually leaking? (Eww!)
