What Exactly ARE Essential Oils?

Essential oils are all around us! Take a walk outside and you’ll be instantly surrounded by essential oils living within the botanicals that make up our world. They’re the wonderful aromatics floating in the air from flowers, trees, bushes, and grasses. They live in the branches and needles of the pine trees you lay under, in the blades of grass you walk on, in the roses that you smell, and the peppermint leaves you touch. They play a vital role in a plant’s ability to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Without their essential oils, plants would not survive. Their primary roles in plant biology are that of disease resistance, predatory defense, and being attractants for pollinators. Research shows that essential oils can provide many benefits to humans and animals.

Essential oil molecules are very small and very volatile (meaning their molecules rise rapidly into the air). This makes them very distinct from fatty oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, etc. which are very greasy and absorb slowly into the skin. The small molecular structure of essential oils makes them very unique in their ability to absorb rapidly into the skin, penetrate cells, and even travel past the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to enter brain tissue. 

When we look at healing modalities throughout history we can see a vast history of essential oils as a go-to staple for health, dating back to 4500 BC. There are over 188 references to essential oils in the Bible alone (Cinnamon, Cassia, Myrrh, and other oils were signs of wealth and status in biblical times and would often be used to anoint the wealthy and powerful. The Three Wise Men brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.) These oils were valued more than gold and were revered for their health-promoting properties.

The Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian document, is cited as the world’s first “medical literature.” Created around 1550 BC, it is the largest record of ancient Egyptian medicine in known existence. It contains over 700 plant-based recipes and remedies, many of which would have been derived crudely in essential oil form.


Today, there are tens of thousands of studies researching the diverse benefits of essential oils. This show is here to empower you to use these amazing natural tools safely and confidently.

    Endometriosis: Everything You Need to Know w/ Michelle McGregor

    Endometriosis: Everything You Need to Know w/ Michelle McGregor

    Endo…what? Are you or anyone you know suffering from debilitating abdominal, leg, lower back, or even chest pain? Do you have especially bad cramps around your menstrual cycle? Even if you have seen doctors about your pain, and they claim it’s just a “painful period,” you might want to investigate further. This week’s episode dives deep into the misunderstandings that often happen around an incredibly common disease called Endometriosis. I sat down with my twin sister Michelle McGregor to break down some of her experiences and knowledge around this disease, and some essential oil tips to help with the side effects.

    Flower Essences vs. Essential Oils w/ Kerry Hughes

    Flower Essences vs. Essential Oils w/ Kerry Hughes

    Flower Essences! How have we done this show for so long without yet covering this topic? I’m so glad to have Kerry Hughes back on the show to finally dive into this modality of plant use. It’s been a long time coming, and this conversation fits so perfectly into our deep dive into the power of plants as of late. What is the difference between Flower Essences and Essential Oils? After this interview I now understand where these two have similarities and where they diverge. I’d love to hear from you about your experience with flower essences, and where you feel they’ve aided you where essential oils can’t.

    Frequency Driven Skincare w/ Cathy Goldstein

    Frequency Driven Skincare w/ Cathy Goldstein

    This week’s episode dives into how the body can learn to be healthy. It can learn how to vibrate at the frequency it needs to in order to be healthy- healthy now, and in the future. To do this we rely on knowledge that’s over 5,000 years old, gained through studies in acupuncture, the balancing of the meridians, and energy work. Today we talk about the body on a cellular level, where everything is vibrating- right down to our cells. There’s a healthy vibrating frequency to everything; lungs, livers, lungs, skin- they all have a healthy vibration. If it’s not vibrating there, it’s sick. Our guest Cathy Goldstein has taken this knowledge about energy and frequency and put it all into an amazing skincare line called True Energy Skincare.

    Hormone Free Birth Control and Natural Fertility w/ Amy Murray

    Hormone Free Birth Control and Natural Fertility w/ Amy Murray

    Birth Control. Let’s talk about it. If you’ve ever tried to get pregnant, or gone out of your way to be sure not to get pregnant, my guess is you’ve either been on some form of hormonal birth control, or considered it. Doctors quickly prescribe “the pill” for issues from family planning, cramps, and even for acne (though let’s be honest… the pill can often cause acne)! But there’s a growing consensus on this drug: hormonal birth control often has very serious side effects, and if not informed about, it can lead to more problems than it solves. I’m so excited to share with you some advice about Fertility Awareness with a true expert in the field, Amy Murray. Fertility Awareness lets you see changes as they are happening to your body. How effective is this method? We dive into that in today’s episode. Accurate information is needed to make an informed decision about freedom over your own body. We’ll cover the effectiveness of Fertility Awareness, bring you home remedies for cramps, and teach you about how food and sleep play a huge role in your cycle health.

    Become Metaphysically Fit Through Plants w/ Gina Bria

    Become Metaphysically Fit Through Plants w/ Gina Bria

    Have you ever been outside- sun shining, birds chirping- when suddenly a particular kind of contentment washes over you? I get that feeling all the time, and usually chalk it up to just being away from the house, or work, and stress. But after meeting our guest this week, Gina Bria, I’m beginning to think that the euphoria I often feel outside, may in fact have more to do with the plants that I’m around than anything else. Gina takes us deep into a conversation about the power of plants, from what is both seen and unseen about them. She is able to give voice to an awareness outside of ourselves, and even outside of human perception .I call this Metaphysics, and I’m excited to share that this coming week, starting May 5th, I’ll be joining Gina at a Metaphysically Fit Summit all about using this awareness to improve our physically and mental health. You can attend online for FREE where you’ll learn to remove doubts and fears, and even unlock the limiting beliefs that are stopping us from being our best selves. We hope this episode inspires you to join us, where some amazing speakers will be helping create action plans that work for YOU!

    A Natural Fountain of Youth From Antlers?

    A Natural Fountain of Youth From Antlers?

    Have you ever gone outside of your comfort zone and find yourself so glad you did? That’s what happened to me this week when I said “yes” to an interview with BioProtein Technology’s Dustin Baker. I realized that when I hear the term “Human Growth Hormones” I have a knee-jerk reaction. That reaction really comes from a lack of knowledge. What exactly are human growth hormones, and why is there such a buzz over them? Dustin and I discuss the difference between synthetic vs natural, the amazing regenerative process of Elk’s antlers, and the comparison between the world of essential oils and Human Growth Hormones. This is an episode you may have to listen to twice to soak in all the knowledge thrown your way. I’m certainly glad I’m more informed, and even excited about the reality and future of BioProtein Technology.

    Learn more about Dustin and BioProtein Technology HERE, and connect on Instagram HERE.

Young Living folks- hard pass

The fact that Young Living, a company KNOWN TO PASS OFF CHEMICALS as ESSENTIAL OILS is used by host. I’ll pass. Real oils are alive and so potent. Use a real organic/biodynamic line. -RA
