Essential Oils for Today and Any Future

What are essential oils and where do they come from?  Just how important are they to use now, and where do they fit into a worse case scenario grid-down world?  

The definition of essential is most fitting when describing these oils: 1. Intrinsic or indispensable properties that serve to characterize or identify something; 2. The most important ingredient – the crucial element.  Essential oils should be a part of your home medical and first aid supplies now as they have many advantages.  They could very likely play a crucial role in your well-being when things get really tough.

Essential oils are the most active and therapeutic compounds from medicinal plants and herbs.  They are 50 to 70 times more potent than the dry herb.  In this respect they are a bargain for the benefit they bring because even the highest grades of essential oils are not 50 to 70 times more expensive than the equivalent encapsulated herb they replace.

The time to learn about and practice using them is now so that in an emergency your confidence is high and your response is natural and quick.  They have an almost indefinite shelf life and are ready to use with little or no preparation.  There are dozens of different ones to choose from – we’ll discuss which ones will be the most important to start with as a part of your provident living lifestyle.
