JTG #46 How to stay grounded & sane during uncertain times with Megan Pennington
JTG #46 How to stay grounded & sane during uncertain times + what is the MRT test 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).
On another note, I have to say that I did start this podcast episode with some serious clarifications about the importance of working with pure essential oils and how to decipher the crap you’ll find on the market right now. 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.
Unfortunately, there are companies that will flat out lie to your face (and lie on their website) and people will fall prey to their marketing, thinking that all essential oils are created equal.
Bottom line is this: it is NOT POSSIBLE to have lemon essential oil cost the same as Blue Tansy or Frankincense. Lemon is widely available while Frankincense and Blue Tansy are both rare and require very different harvesting and transforming process.
In the intro, I share a list of reasons why you don’t want to buy from these companies but the bottom line is that if an oil is adulterated it becomes dangerous (cause you don’t know what you’re playing with) and just won’t have any medicinal properties.
If you care about quality and actually using essential oils that are effective, you’ll want to listen to the intro.
Whether you choose Doterra or Pranarom which is another company I love and trust or to work with another brand, please do your research and dig deeper than the pretty marketing on a brand’s website. There’s a lot of greenwashing out there and it’s certainly prevalent in the essential oils market as well.
