Learn to use oils safely and effectively
I have used essential oils for a few years now but I always felt slightly uncomfortable taking advice on something that has an effect on my health from just anyone. I searched for a long time for a "proper" aromatherapist, so when the opportunity came to go to a workshop run by Stacy from Olja Essential Oils, I jumped at the opportunity.
Stacy is currently studying a diploma in Aromatherapy, which she says is very exciting and challenging! For me, I felt far more comfortable with her knowledge and guidance rather than someone who had signed up with one of the oils companies and was selling them. Stacy is close to finishing her qualification and along with many years of personal oils use - she is an absolute wealth of knowledge and passion about essential oils.
During the workshop, Stacy shared with us how to use oils safely and the many benefits. I love that Stacy doesn't try and sell a particular brand and whilst she has some amazing blends and products (check out her website here) she lets you decide which company you buy your own oils from.
Finding out not only what oils could help with but also how to use them in the most effective way was something I took away and have been using practically in my everyday life. I also went home with a gorgeous custom-made blend and a cute but effective sniffy thing for stuffy noses. And I have a wishlist of other items from her website.
Stacy says about her journey to using essential oils - "My Nana had just recovered from Pneumonia, but found it had weakened her chest, so every time she caught a cold, it would always end up in her chest, taking her a long time to heal. I thought there had to be a natural way to help support her body! After some research, Eucalyptus essential oil was the winner! She still uses it to this day and it helps support her respiratory system. This was the beginning of my love of essential oils and the more I researched, the more I saw the potential to help people keep healthy with their mind, body and soul. This is why I love what I do, by giving people tools to take charge of their health and wellbeing!"
Essential Oil Safety is very important to Stacy, she wants everyone to be able to use these amazing oils with the minimum chance of adverse reactions. Essential oils are incredibly potent and a tiny drop can go a long way. Respecting how strong they are and how to use them safely means you get all the benefits with minimal risk!
Stacey is addressing the need of a large number of people who are wanting to find alternative ways to help support their body as a whole. She offers guidance on how to use essential oils to help with every aspect of your being, whether it's a soothing muscle rub, a blend to decongest the sinuses, one to brighten and lift your mood or help ease pain. With essential oils becoming easier to access, her focus is on people taking back control of their wellbeing by utilising plant based medicine!
