How Essential Oils Fill a Void Created by Pesticides

We are all aware that modern farming practices make use of ample pesticides.  What we may not be aware of is how these pesticides impede the natural healing ability of the plants. Essential Oil nutrition can be used to fill the gap.


Essential Oil Nutrition

In essence, by doing the job of fighting off predators for the plant, the plant never develops the innate ability to fight off predators for itself.  When animals and humans consume plants, the innate healing ability of the plant (stored in the essential oils) is passed on to the animals and humans, in essence strengthening our own immune systems as well.

Just as the lack of macro nutrients from plants grown in mineral depleted soils transfers to a deficiency in vitamins and minerals in the humans and animals who consume it, the lack of innate immune supporting ability in plants sprayed with pesticides results in a lack in our own immunity.


How Can Essential Oils Help?

Here is where essential oils can fill a critical gap.  We know that essential oils help the plants grow, thrive, evolve, and adapt to surroundings. They also protect plants from bacterial and viral infections, heal injuries, repel unwanted insects, prevent water loss and other environmental damage, play a role in plant pollination and deliver oxygen and nutrients into the cells.

In the human body, they play a similar role — transporting valuable nutrients to the cells, increasing oxygen intake, and digesting toxic waste in the blood. Since essential oils are bio-familiar to humans, they can also help balance and support the human body to heal itself. Research has shown that essential oils help us fight infection (with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties), balance hormones and emotions and aid in regeneration.

Vibrant Blue Oils oils are either certified organic, grown organically but not certified as some countries do not offer this certification), or wild grown by nature.  We intentionally use only organically grown crops as toxic pesticide residues can become highly concentrated in the oils.
