Recently I read an article by Mayenne Carmona regarding essential oils. (Read Article HERE) This brought back memories of when I was first introduced to essential oils while working for a holistic doctor.  The article points out that years ago people didn’t run to the doctor for every little thing instead they tried home remedies first.  Debra Mauldin, a certified aromatherapist, writes “that plant remedies and essential oils have a long tradition of providing therapeutic benefits and most have been confirmed by modern scientific research”.  “They are readily absorbed through the skin and the olfactory system, which benefits the psyche”.  She continues saying, “Physiologically, essential oils influence the functions of organs and tissues, and help regulate the endocrine system”. Mauldin claims “that aromatherapy works by influencing the body, mind, and spirit, and can actually benefit babies, children, men, women, and the elderly”.  Buy your mint essential oils from America’s Favorite Mint Farmer (HERE)
