Health and Wellbeing
By Bex Tereu
I have a confession to make.
These imposters were found in my pantry!
I can hear your collective gasps from here – what is she doing with that synthetic cheap rubbish in her house, when she has access to certified pure therapeutic grade oils?? AKA the best oils in the world!!
Well that’s a good question.
Not too many years ago when I was mindlessly strolling down the aroma isle of the warewhare (as you do), my conscious encountered essential oils for the first time. I think my house was smelling like cat wee at the time (let’s continue to be honest while I’m on a roll), and I had heard that burning oils was a thing that could help.
So $4 later I was the proud owner of my first “essential oil”. And yes, it did help alter the smell of cat wee…for a short period of time at least. But goodness knows what that aroma was actually doing to my insides as a result.
But that doesn’t explain why they were still found in my pantry as of 4pm yesterday afternoon.
Well the honest answer is that I kept them around so I could be reminded of what an ignorant idiot I had been. No seriously, there’s something about reviewing your past that helps you be so much more grateful for your present and hopeful for your future. Am I right? Well in this context anyway.
I now know that those “essential oils” (note the sarcastic quotation marks) you can buy for cheap in such places are probably 99% cheap and nasty carrier oil, and 1% synthetic/toxic fragrance.
Now I know that many of you may be rolling your eyes right now – there she goes again talking about toxins, poisons, synthetic crap, yada yada yada. And you’re right, I do use that language and make those points often now. Unapologetically actually. Now that I am fully aware of the consequences of using poison in and on my body, I can’t help but talk about it.
The way I see it, you have two options. Wait for disaster to strike in the form of cancer (for example), or use that big beautiful brain of yours to make some very important and preventative decisions.
For the record, I am fully aware that cancer can strike anyone at anytime regardless of what we do or don’t do. BUT if you’re intent on bathing in poison, you can’t get upset when that poison starts eating away at your insides am I right?
Yes I know I am.
Because I was that bather my whole life – up until now of course.
What are you putting on your skin? What are you breathing in? What are you putting in your mouth? Every day we are toxic-loading and most of the time we have no idea we’re doing it. You can’t live perfectly in an imperfect world my friend, but when you can take the power and control over your own life, and the life of your whanau – then you bloody well should.
