About Essential Oils
Essential Oils have been used for centuries to treat a wide variety of ailments. Before the pharmaceutical industry acquired a stronghold over medicine, plants were one of the only sources of relief from symptoms. Despite centuries of use, scientific studies into these treatments have only recently been conducted. While more “proof” into the effectiveness of Essential Oils is on the way, we need to rely on Empirical Evidence.
Wikipedia says: “Empirical evidence, also known as sense experience, is the knowledge or source of knowledge acquired by means of the senses, particularly by observation and experimentation.”
There are millions of people throughout the world who know about the effectiveness of essential oils because they use them everyday. Yet many people remain skeptical. Skepticism can be defined as: “generally any questioning attitude or doubt towards one or more items of supposed knowledge or belief.” Are you skeptical? If so, what’s the best way to deal with your skepticism?
Scientific skepticism is about testing beliefs for reliability, by subjecting them to systematic investigation using the scientific method, to discover empirical evidence for them.
So we encourage you to be your own scientist and “use” some essential oils! Subject them to your own evaluation. But don’t just try a few drops and if a miracle doesn’t happen conclude they don’t work. Get a few bottles of different oils, do a little homework using our learning page, and give them a proper evaluation.
Guess what? It turns out that God is an incredible chemist and gave us these natural things around our planet for us to use. Whatever your beliefs, whether it be in God or Mother Nature, these natural plant compounds are here for us. They are meant to help maintain and restore our heath and vitality and have always been intended for that.
