JTG #46 How To Stay Grounded During Uncertain Times with Megan Pennington
JTG #46 How to stay grounded & sane during uncertain times + MRT (food sensitivities) testing with Megan Pennington
Today we’re talking Megan Pennington about staying grounded in uncertain times. We also talk about Megan’s expertise which is holistic nutrition and MRT testing (Mediator Release Test) and how food testing can help you pinpoint the root cause of a skin issue.
Before diving into my conversation with Megan, I talk about the importance of working with pure essential oils and how to decipher high quality oils from adulterated oil you’ll currently find flooding the market. This was brought on because I came across an essential oil company that is selling a wide array of essential oils all at the impossibly low price of $10 to $20, including precious oils such as Frankincense and Blue Tansy. So I thought it was necessary to clarify why essential oils cannot be sold all at the same price and why it’s a big huge red flag.
Unfortunately, there are companies that will flat out lie to our face (and lie on their website) and people will fall prey to their marketing, thinking that all essential oils are created equal and why not pay as little as possible!
Bottom line is this: it is NOT POSSIBLE to have lemon essential oil cost the same as Blue Tansy or Frankincense. Lemon is a widely available fruit that is, quite frankly, very easy to grow while Frankincense and Blue Tansy are both rare and require very different harvesting and transforming processes. The cost, therefore, cannot be the same. Hint: these oils will not be pure and therefore, you won’t know what’s in the bottle which can frankly be dangerous if you’re looking to use essential oils for therapeutic purposes.
If you care about quality and want to purchase and use essential oils that are actually effective, you’ll want to research companies properly AND know what to look for so you don’t fall prey to greenwashing.
Whether you choose Doterra or Pranarom (which is another company I mention for their high quality) or choose to work with another brand, you’ll want to dig deeper than the pretty marketing on a brand’s website.
