Essential Oils by Sue Froschheuser
August is Kids Month at Herbs4You! We love kids and want to keep them healthy! As much as we hate to see summer come to a close, school is fast approaching. With fall around the corner, we should start thinking of ways to protect our family from illness. Essential Oils are a great tool to have at home to optimize your Kid's good health!
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential Oils (EOs) are plant-based therapeutic organic compounds that are extracted from plant components (leaves, flowers, roots, seeds, bark, etc.) . In the plant's natural surroundings, these organic compounds protect the plant from disease, insects, and other harsh environmental factors...helping it to survive and thrive!
EO's therapeutic constituents are small lipid soluble molecules that easily penetrate the skin. Via our circulatory system, they have the potential to affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes and are metabolized like other nutrients. Many EO constituents have antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, anti-viral and antiseptic properties .
Here are just a few of the oils we carry at Herbs4You:
Every day our kids are exposed to germs and bacteria. Armor contains very strongest anti-infectious oils and can help protect and promote sustained health through the cold and flu season. The oils in Armor support the immune system, blood circulation, and respiratory system to aid with our body’s ability to expel mucus and eliminate parasites, toxins and infections.
This oil has an immediate grounding effect. It is great for focusing. Suggested uses: (dilute with a carrier oil) respiratory chest rub, activity related sore muscle rub, and to promote a calming/focused effect.
Orange EO has the ability to uplift and bring joy while dispelling nervous tension, anger, anxiety and panic. A good oil for the anxious child.
