Following is a guest blog from Kathy Dench. Kathy Dench is the owner of Your Light Shine and is a teacher, intuitive coach, and Reiki practitioner. She started her spiritual journey after communicating with a deceased loved one in a reading with Cindy. Kathy credits that reading and subsequent readings from Cindy with opening her to her soul purpose of healing and service in a much deeper way than ever before. She combines essential oils in her sessions to enhance the benefits of Reiki.
I have been very interested in how to be more connected to my body, mind, and spirit in the past few years. This has led me to a yoga and meditation practice, which led me to want to eat in the healthiest way possible. Healthy eating led me to want to get rid of the synthetic pharmaceuticals and other products I was using and begin using essential oils.
What are “Essential Oils”?
Essential oils are the liquids distilled from plants and their parts including seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruit, and other parts. Many essential oils you can buy on the market are not Certified Therapeutic Grade. When using oils choosing those that fit this standard will assure that you have pure oils with no additives and insure the best results.
