Precious Oils was established on May 1, 1991. Over the last 20 years, our essential oils and synergistic essential oil blends have been used around the world. We recently became a distributor of aroma bottle jewelry.
Precious Oils shares the view with many accredited aroma therapists and aromatherapy organizations throughout the world. Precious Oils began from our love of herbs, flowers and spices. We have never participated in any essential oil MLM company nor do we reference any of their books or marketing as being the source of information for our company. We will be posting our recommendations of sources in this non-regulated industry over the next few weeks.
We do not believe that the use of essential oils is the only modality to healing; it’s not. Essential Oil Therapy is a complimentary and pleasant aide to one’s health just as good diet, fresh air and exercise, laughter, spiritual reading and practices, sleep, herbal teas and tinctures and every other natural modality of healing that we have available today. Please use wisdom and enjoy precious, essential oils for your own health and pleasure.
We believe that anyone can be allergic to anything, at any time. With that thought we do not support a current trend of using essential oils in an unsafe environment such as treatments called “rain-drop” or “aroma-touch”. Once again, aromatherapy is an unregulated industry. Anyone who advises you to use essential oils undiluted is giving medical advice and puts you in danger as essential oils are a highly concentrated substance that can cause dermal damage. We must be wise in our claims of essential oils to aid ones health. If we don’t, government may impose regulations on essential oils, herbs and other natural modalities that we enjoy. I say this statement boldly, and with reason. I read a few Yahoo and Google group whose members belong to the MLM’s and see danger approaching with their claims. As I read the members medical advice to other members and to those who they are treating (“in other words” trying to get to join their companies) I become more concerned. Often they encourage essential oils to be ingested, used undiluted on the skin, treat infants, children and pregnant women and give diagnosis (often by unlicensed individuals that are present in these forums or those who have achieved “star status” where monetary gain can be achieved by their continual interaction as participants or the hosts of these groups). Not all of their advice is bad, and it is not all good. One word of caution is for us to remember this . . . often “less is more” when using essential oils. Blend in 1 to 3% dilution in carrier oil before applying to skin. Inhale using a diffuser; it only takes two or three drops to add health benefits to your room. You can add essential oils to a bath by mixing 5 drops in 1/2 to 1 cup salt, milk or cream. Blend well before adding to a bath, relax and enjoy.
Essential oil therapy is pleasurable, aromatic, relaxing, energizing and an over-all enjoyable modality of healing. With wisdom let’s keep it that way.
