Last time we discussed a few ways to clean up your environment to help keep toxins from entering your system. Today, I want to discuss a few essential oils that can be really good to cleanse your body from the inside.
Despite our best efforts, many interactions to harmful substances are unavoidable, so our bodies are still exposed to a myriad of toxins every day. We can still take steps to minimize their effect on our health, rather than allowing the amount of toxins to build up and overload our bodies. Conducting a periodic detoxification and cleansing regime is wise and rids the body of many harmful substances to avoid toxic overload. Essential oils offer a gentle and effective way to rid the body of these toxins.
Only certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils are safe for internal consumption. When selecting essential oils for detoxification purposes, always be sure to check the bottles for a supplement fact label to make sure it is safe for internal consumption. Consult a health care practitioner before beginning a cleanse or detox.
