Have you ever tried essential oils? If you haven’t, then you may be missing out on their potential health benefits and the overall sense of relaxation that they can promote.
Essential oils are naturally occurring volatile aromatic compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be used to improve health, provide beautiful fragrances, and as part of beauty routines.
Frani Pisano of Ellenton sells essential oils from the company dōTERRA and is a true believer in all that dōTERRA has to offer. Once an ad exec in the hustle and bustle of New York City, Frani decided to take a step back to do something that she found more rewarding. While studying to be a Health Coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, a classmate introduced Frani to dōTERRA oils. “I fell in love,” she says.
When Frani educates others about essential oils, she explains all the different ways they can potentially help in our lives. These include:
- helping to relieve pain
- improving mood
- easing stress
- helping with head tension
- promoting relaxation
- easing digestive issues
- providing seasonal relief
- helping with home cleaning
….and many, many more uses.
Frani meets many people who want to use essential oils in addition to or in place of expensive medicine that can sometimes have health side effects. “They’re looking for natural solutions,” she says. Here are a few examples of essential oils that may help seniors or their caregivers.
- Lavender essential oil is well known for promoting sleep and easing stress. It also can be useful to treat occasional skin irritations.
- Adaptiv from dōTERRA is a calming oil blend that includes Wild Orange, Spearmint, Magnolia, and other oils. It is geared toward mood-boosting and promoting feelings of tranquility.
- Peppermint essential oil can help soothe aching muscles and promote feelings of happiness. It also can be used to cool the body or to help address head tension.
Essential oils can be used in a diffuser to provide fragrance to the air. Many types of oils also can be applied to the bottoms of feet, on the skin, or even be ingested.
When meeting with new customers, Frani will talk about what essential oils are, why dōTERRA is such a trusted company in the essential oil business, and what health concerns that customer or his or her family has, so she can make customized oil recommendations. It’s important that users know how to effectively use each oil, she cautions.
Frani also offers to customers free resources such as guidebooks, videos, and a private Facebook group so clients can continue to educate themselves.
