Why WOTE Essential Oils?
There are a lot of essential oil brands out there today. I mean, GLADE, is even getting in on the essential oil business. You see cleaners that proudly announce “made with essential oils” on their labels and in their ads. Soaps, shampoos, toothpastes, and even drink brands are using essential oils in their branding statements and supposedly, in their products. You can even find bottles of “pure essential oils” in the grocery stores! It can be very confusing to know which ones are real and which ones are imposters, much less how to use them safely.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Some of the small brands probably ARE actually using essential oils. However, most are using some “dumbed down” form of plant oil. What I mean is that they are playing with the chemical makeup by adding perfumes, fillers, water, alcohols or other chemicals to reach their preferred smell, consistency, or application. They may even remove portions of theactual plant oil to get their desired effect. Either way, the process of adding or subtracting from the pure plant oil deems the essential oil useless. Sure, it may smell pretty, but it has no actual use beyond being used as a fragrance.
REAL, pure, medicinal essential oils are SOOOOOO much more! When you know where your oils come from, who grew the plants, the quality controls they use in producing the oils, their commitment to honoring the plants and the Earth…that’s when you know if you are getting the real deal or not. And that’s why I carry WOTE essential oils. The high level of commitment from WOTE farmers and WOTE owners to deliver the purest, highest vibration, and most powerful essential oils to the market is, and always has been, steadfast.
Because of the high quality of these essential oils, you actually CAN use them to address medicinal issues, safely. For instance, Geranium, Sage ‘Clary’, Hyssop, and Anise ‘Raven’ do a great job of addressing hormonal balance issues. Myrtle and Hyssop do wonders for thyroid issues. Pure Lavender (and there are so many different cultivars to choose from here) is not only calming for the Central Nervous System, but can also be used as an analgesic for cuts, bruises, sore muscles and can even help you grow hair!
Now, because we are talking about using essential oils medicinally, you can see why your oils need to be pure. You wouldn’t want to try to resolve a medical issue with perfume. You might stink differently, but you could get sicker. There is a lot of fear, mistrust and confusion around using oils medicinally. Some say to dilute them with a carrier oil. Some say not to use them period. And some say they are completely safe. What to do?
Well, you may not know this, but the regulations around the production and use of essential oils is very loose and confusing. Companies can use words like natural and pure if they choose, when it comes to their labels. They don’t have to prove it. And, that’s pretty scary, actually. So, there is no doubt that fear, mistrust and confusion have been rampant in the essential oil and aromatherapy industry.
Sure, the Lemon essential oil you can get at the grocery store makes your homemade cleaning spray smell good. But, it doesn’t work as an anti bacterial, anti depressant, to balance high blood pressure or to balance pH. It’s not actually pure, and it is certainly not medicinal, even if it says so on the label. And, if you really want a cleaning spray that smells good and works better, there is no reason to use the grocery store brand. Why not use the real stuff! That way you get the benefit of being able to use it medicinally too!
And cost? Well, I encourage you not to let that be a real factor. Here’s why. If you are getting the real deal, it’s going to last for a long time, and you are going to get a ton of use out of it. A 15ml bottle of Lemon ‘Green’ that you can get with me is $21. You can get the same size bottle at your grocery store for about $14.00…but you have no idea what it actually contains. And if you are planning on using it as anything other than a fragrance, well, you really can’t do that safely. The pure medicinal oil is the clear choice for anyone who wants more than a nice smell.
So, here’s what it comes down to for me and Rock Mama Metals. I know that WOTE essential oils are the real deal. I want you to have support that is safe, trustworthy, effective and powerful. I want to honor the plants’ and the Earth’s medicine. I can only feel good about pairing essential oils with my aromatherapy jewelry that checks all those boxes. And that’s why I carry WOTE essential oils. If you ever have any questions about which oil is right for you, don’t hesitate to consult with me. I am a certified aromatherapist as well, and I am dedicated to helping you get the support you need on your journey.
