I am an independent distributor for Young Living Essential Oils, a lifestyle company most known for its essential oils. While essential oils are far from new, they have been largely forgotten in Western healthcare until recently. More and more people are learning about the benefits of essential oils and my goal is to teach my customers how essential oils can be used to address common health concerns without the harmful side effects of prescription medicine as well as how essential oils can be sued to support the proper function of all major body systems. Essential oils can be extremely beneficial in the elderly as they are sometimes more susceptible to harmful side effects than others age groups. As we know, polypharmacy in the elderly has been an ongoing concern for many years and is associated with many negative consequences including the risk of adverse drug events as well as increased healthcare costs. I believe essential oils can be used in so many ways and want to teach others how to use them safely and effectively.
