Passing the Canary Test– Lavender

cropped-lavender2

Ever hear the phrase, “The Canary in the Mine,” and wondered what it meant?

Before technology allowed for proper ventilation and created sensors to detect harmful levels of toxic gas in coal mines, miners would depend on a canary. Yes, a bird.

A canary is sensitive to carbon monoxide and methane gas. If the canary died, this signaled imminent danger for the miners. They would vacate the mine immediately.

People with chemical sensitivities are the canary for the rest of the world regarding household and hygiene products, artificial fragrances, make-up, foods, and more. Our bodies can’t process artificial stuff, and it causes a back-up in the liver, our whole detoxification system, making us very sick. This has recently been connected to a genetic mutation in PONS1 and MTHFR, causing us to become Non-methylators.

The switch is believed to have been switched due to chemical exposure.

For me, this only happens when a product is altered by man, using chemicals that are harmful to the body. People like me are a warning sign for the rest of the world for toxic products. Your body may not sense immediate danger, yet it’s just as toxic in the long haul.

Since connecting the dots to my health about a decade ago, I made a choice to use products and eat food that enhance my health, instead of taxing it. And, it has paid off. When a product is not pure, my body knows it.

yl_lavender_essential_oilEssential oils have been a part of my life since making the connection, yet it took a while for me to realize that they are not all created equal. I’ve tried many different brands of essential oils, but even some of those cause undesirable reactions. Until my body met up with the purity of Young Living Essential Oils . Essential oils, like lavender have historically caused migraines, yet not Young Living’s. The “seed to seal” purity guaranteed product passed this canary test, and I am thrilled. Lavender has so many health benefits, and I look forward to giving this one another chance.

Lavender is the most versatile essential oil and is often used to cleanse and soothe minor burns, cuts, and other skin irritations. It’s refreshing, relaxing scent has balancing properties that also calm the mind and body.

Stay tuned to find out how to incorporate these oils into your daily lives and use for medicinal purposes, tossing out your over-the-counter pharmaceuticals. If you’d like more information on this line of products, message me and let the dialogue begin. Or go here to find out more!!!
