the Oily Dietitian
Welcome to the Oily Dietitian, the oily part of Milk & Honey Nutrition. Here, you'll find some of my tips and tricks for living a more natural lifestyle, as well as some of the most delicious recipes and tips for cooking with essential oils!
Now, before you go dismissing essential oils as only for those hippy, granola-y type people, let me tell you my story. I've been a type 1 diabetic since I was 5 years old. I LOVE modern day medicine. I am alive because of it! I wear an insulin pump that pumps insulin into my body by the minute, and without it, I wouldn't be here. I vaccinate my kids, we take antibiotics when needed, and I get a flu shot every year...
BUT, you won't find me giving my kids, or myself, ibuprofen at the first sign of a headache, or Claritin at the first sign of seasonal sniffles. I don't like the idea of cleaning my house with a bunch of potent chemicals that I'm nervous for my kids to be exposed to breathe in. My skin breaks out in hives at the first sign of perfumes, synthetic scents, and dyes.
That's where Young Living essential oils come in... a natural way to boost our immune systems, help us deal with common health struggles, clean my house, and smell and look nice with out synthetic ingredients.
Did you know you can cook and bake with essential oils? Essential oils are the ultimate spice cabinet (think ginger, cinnamon, thyme, nutmeg, etc.), and you'll never have to juice or zest another lemon, lime, or orange again!
