HEALTH BENEFITS of HOT COCOA and PURE ESSENTIAL OILS!
Recent data from the United States Department of Agriculture indicates that cocoa powder and dark chocolate are highly concentrated sources of natural flavanols. In general the higher the cocoa content, the greater the antioxidant potential.
Scientific studies show that naturally occurring flavanoid compounds from cocoa beans may deliver health benefits. Flavanoids act as antioxidants and are found in high concentrations in all plants.
It takes 1-4 cups or more of plant matter to make 1 single drop of pure essential oil, making essential oils an extremely high antioxidant source.
PLEASE NOTE: There are many cheap, synthetic copies of aromatic oils, but these are not recommended for therapeutic use. For best results purchase the highest quality oils you can possibly find. Use certified organic essential oils, or oils that have been tested and are pesticide free.
Aromatherapy is a gentle and noninvasive complementary health care system used for balancing and synchronizing your body, mind, spirit and emotions to enhance your health. Properly administered essential oils are a natural, safe and effective way to enhance your health and well-being and can produce satisfying results where other methods have failed. Please consult with your physician regarding serious health concerns and do not attempt to self diagnose.
