I started Blue Dawn Aromatherapy to share my love of essential oils and their benefits with the world. I feel that nature has a way of providing for and taking care of itself, and that includes us, since we are, in essence, part of nature. Essential oils are derived from plants, and are one of nature’s many gifts to us. They have been used for centuries in all parts of the world for health and spiritual well being. A single essential oil can contain hundreds of chemical components, some of which are replicated by science to give us pharmaceuticals, and some of which have not even been identified yet. There is a special synergy within an oil (and sometimes between oils) that can only be obtained with the right compounds put together in the right way, which science cannot replicate. Though I don’t believe in necessarily giving up science and conventional medicine all together, I believe that we can enhance our lives with nature’s gifts, and in doing so, can avoid some exposure to synthetics, leaving us with cleaner, more natural lives.
