Aromatherapy & Essential Oils for Fighting Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi & Assisting in Respiratory Wellbeing.

Some of the earliest known use of Essential Oils dates back to Ancient China between 2697 – 2597 BC during the Huang dynasty. There are ancient Chinese Medicine texts which list essential oils and their benefits.

The use of Essential Oils dates back not only through the history of Chinese Medicine, but also back to ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Arabia, Isreal and Europe. There is evidence that essential oils were even used to help people survive the bubonic plague, due to their powerful immune boosting and anti-bacterial effects.

Whilst the value of the use of Essential Oils has been somewhat lost through centuries of Western culture and it’s neglect of the mind-body-spirit connection, the importance of the sense of smell and the potential application of essential oils in healing is making a comeback, particularly in the last few years.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are the pure essence extracted from the leaves, seeds, roots, or flowers of a plant or tree. They are the ‘life-force’ and have also been called the blood of the plant. Just one drop of an essential oil can have a powerful effect on the body. Each essential oil has its own set of health enhancing properties which are dependant on the chemical constituents that make up the individual oil.

The Importance of Purity It is only pure, natural living plant extracts that carry healing properties required to enhance the health of the body. A pure plant oil will give and create more life energy, whereas a synthetic or unpure oil will drain life energy, as the body works to eliminate something which is unnatural. High quality essential oils are extracted in a way where proper extraction and quality control methods are followed. Many brands of essential oils on the market contain synthetic fillers and perfumes and it is for this reason that only certified pure brands of essential oils are used.

No More Asthma, ‘GORD’, Diarrhoea or Liver Issues: How ‘Being Savvy’ Changed My Life!

Saturday Success Story: Paula shares the impact that ‘Being Savvy’ made for her wellbeing and that of her dog Bessie too!

“I began on the Savvy Team recommended probiotic and prebiotic complex and it was like magic – the problem went away. I rarely have a bowel issue today.

I had also been suffering from GORD issues (gastro-oesophageal reflux disease) and taking Nexium and Tazac for years.

On this program I have been able to eliminate the need for that medication completely.”


It was at a bush picnic with the Karawatha Forest Protection Society, of which I am now their Secretary,  that my story with the Savvy Team all started . . .

I stumbled across Savvy Team member Alan, in the forest while we were both on a bush walk and happened to be walking side by side.  He heard my persistent cough and after enquiring about it, he suggested that he may be able to help me.

I have suffered from conditions such as asthma and bronchitis for many years and this had been a very bad year for me.  In addition to the asthma and bronchitis, I had a nasty and very inconvenient problem of diarrhoea and loose stools particularly in the morning. I always had to get out of bed 2 hours before leaving the house to allow time for eating and ablutions.

Little did I know how simple the solution would be . . .
