Since the dawn of time food, herbs and oils have been used to help promote health, treat disease, enhance mental well being and connect with a deeper consciousness. Oils can also be used to anoint candles in rituals for meditation, diffused into the air, or depending on quality of the oil, placed on the body. Please be kind to yourself and others and do your research before applying or ingesting anything you don't know about!
Allergies and their reactions are quite real so practice with caution and speak to a physician, natural path or nutritionist if you have any concerns. This is not meant to take place of any medical treatment, and ask if it is safe first before using anything while pregnant. Not all herbs are meant to be ingested and not all essential oils are created equal. Please do your research and practice safely.
