HomeHealthWhere Can I Buy Essential Oils? Herb February 7, 2017 Health Essential oils are a big deal these days – and for good reason. They provide numerous health benefits, can easily clean your home, and perhaps best of all, they remove the need for harsh cleaning chemicals and other harmful products that pose a threat to the health of you and your family. With the popularity of essential oils, however, comes another problem – how do you know which oils are worth your money and which aren’t? Are these new blends of oils really going to do what they say, or are you just getting taken for a quick buck? These are legitimate concerns you have to take into consideration when buying essential oils. Unless, of course, you buy them from Nature’s Sunshine. We began offering essential oils fifteen years ago, and even then the market was incredibly competitive. What we found was that a large portion of other companies offering essential oils offered diluted, altered, or standardizes oils. They weren’t pure, 100% natural and authentic oils. Instead, they’d been enhanced for flavor, fragrance, and economic advantage. While that lines the pockets of certain companies, it doesn’t do much in the way of helping you get the most out of your essential oils purchase. That’s why Nature’s Sunshine is committed to offering only 100% authentic oils. No additives. No gimmicks. What it says on the bottle is what you get, and we’re confident our products – over 30 oils – will outperform others due to their all-natural state. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the oils we offer and why you should consider making Nature’s Sunshine your essential oils retailer of choice. Eucalyptus Essential Oil When the seasons change, it’s not uncommon to start feeling a bit down. It’s a proven fact that depression rates skyrocket when fall gives way to winter, largely due to the lack of sunlight. So if you’re like most people who could use a pick-me-up when the seasons change, then our eucalyptus oil is the choice for you. It’s organically grown, 100% pure, and is best applied topically in your neck and chest areas. However, as with all essential oils, we recommend diluting them before use with Nature’s Sunshine Massage or Carrier oil if you apply them topically. This helps get the most out of the oil without using too much at once and causing any unwanted side effects. Tei-Fu Essential Oil Tei-fu is an invigorating blend of menthol, camphor, wintergreen, eucalyptus, lavender, clove, and safflower oils that combine to create a soothing and refreshing oil. Tei-Fu is most commonly used after hard workouts. Applying it directly to your muscles following a rigorous day at the gym or a long run will help soothe your muscles. Another lesser-known effect of Tei-Fu is oil is its ability to eliminate unwanted odors. When you use it with Nature’s Sunshine Carrier Oil, you can easily spray it or roll it on to smelly gym clothes – or even your gym bag – to get rid of those workout odors. It also works for laundry, house cleaning, and any other activity in which you’d usually use a harsher cleaning chemical. Lemongrass Essential Oil Smooth, pure skin is something we all want, right? But achieving and maintaining skin like that isn’t as easy as it sounds. Lotion helps, but often you need something more. That something more is the lemongrass oil we offer here at Nature’s Sunshine. Lemongrass is designed to specifically target your skin, making it smoother and more toned than before you used the oil. It’s also great for elevating and brightening your mood – something lotion can’t do. Combine that with an all-natural grassy aroma and you have a skin care product that’ll make all of your friends instantly jealous.
