How Essential Oils can Help you Improve your Health

I have spent the last year developing partnerships to offer you some of my favorite health products at a discount. Whether you are trying to improve the health of your home or treat a chronic infection we have products that can support you. One of our newest offerings is high-quality essential oils (EO) from Rocky Mountain Oils

I was cautious getting into the use of essential oils. I had seen so many multi-level marking plans and I often recoiled at the health claims associated. Over the last 7 years, I have spent a lot of time learning the benefits of what high-quality essential oils can offer in my practice. Science has shown essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves into the brain where they can impact the emotional centers of the brain. Not only do these compounds work directly with our cells, but they can also weaken the cell wall of resistant bacteria/virus/fungi thereby killing infections too! 

I am encouraged by how well essential oils can support antimicrobial treatments that are fighting infections that have become resistant to antimicrobial drugs. These oils can also be immunomodulatory and help your genes express in beneficial ways. After years of reading the science, I recommend diffusing essential oils for your health. I’ve partnered with Rocky Mountain Oils because they offer high-quality, 100% pure, natural, and authentic essential oils. 

Here are some examples of ways to start to incorporate diffusing essential oils into your home/office. 

Antimicrobial Properties:

Many of my patients are struggling from mold illness caused by living or working in a water-damaged building. Along with individualized care, I suggest diffusing essential oils in your home/office to manage fungal infections. Thyme, Rosemary, Cedar Leaf, Holy Basil, Clove, Tea Tree, Ajwain seed, Cumin seed, and Black Cumin are shown to reduce fungal growth, reduce mycotoxin production, and are safe to use long term. Each essential oil has its own way of supporting you. For example, Thyme can take action against strains of fungi and Candida that are resistant to fluconazole (a medication for fungal infections). You can choose 3 of these oils at a time to diffuse. These essential oils can also be used as nasal spray. Please contact me for instructions to make your own essential oil nasal spray.

Immunomodulation Properties: 

Other patients struggle with histamine, allergies, or Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS). Essential oils can also add another level of support to your protocol. Most people with histamine intolerance or MCAS are very sensitive to substances but often can tolerate diffusing essential oils. Essential Oils of Frankincense, Holy Basil, Eucalyptus Radiata, Ginger, Myrrh, Rosemary, Lavender, Nerve Support Blend, and Spruce can help support your reaction to histamine by stabilizing mast cells. 


Sleep is a big issue for many people. There are many reasons people have a hard time sleeping. Adding essential oils to your bedtime routine can also offer support to get a good night’s sleep. Peace and Quiet, Calming, Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Lavender can help transform your sleep quality. We all feel better if we can get a good night’s sleep. Please reach out to me if you are struggling to get quality sleep.

It is important to keep our furry friends safe from essential oils! Dogs and cats can get sick from some essential oils. Please read Rocky Mountain Oil’s blog (located in the hyperlinks above) on what oils to avoid around your pets. 

If you have any questions about how we can add essential oils to your plan, please reach out. We are always here to help and look forward to seeing you again soon.
