About Me

Ash-and-city-sunsetHi,

First of all, thanks for dropping in!

It’s always nice to be visited by friends. I once read a quote in a book that I really like – “A stranger is a friend you haven’t met yet”. So hello there, friend that I am now meeting (*virtual wave*)!

Now a little about myself and why I started this website…

For many years, I’ve known that many products in the market contain ingredients that can be harmful to people. Some even have ingredients that are already proven to be harmful! But I confess, out of convenience, I continued to use the regular cleaning agents, insect repellents, shampoos, skincare products etc.

About two years ago, my family and I moved to a new apartment. The property’s theme was “garden”, so there was much more greenery around than in my previous home. We loved it! BUT what’s not so great were the many more uninvited visitors – the six-legged crawlies and sometimes even the eight-legged ones too.

As a proud homeowner with a slight (well, I think it’s slight anyway) inclination to cleanliness OCD, I immediately emptied the can of insecticide spraying everywhere. But with the strong insecticide odor in my nose, I couldn’t help remembering that my family and I were breathing in all the nasty chemicals, breath after breath. We also developed persistent headaches.

The insecticide did its job. But the chemicals were killing us along with the crawlies. There had to be a better way.

That was when I embarked on my quest in earnest to search for ways to tackle everyday chores with more natural products. Products that wouldn’t slowly kill us along with whatever problems they were solving.

And then I found essential oils.

Not only do essential oils not harm us when used properly, they’re actually good for us. They’re also incredibly versatile. I’ve expanded from using them about the home and outdoors to on my face, body and hair too. Yes, essential oils are great for skin and hair as well!

Some caution is indeed needed to use essential oils, because they’re very potent. But you don’t need a college degree in it, just some knowledge and common sense.

And this is what I created this website for. I want to share with you and everybody who care about the health of themselves, their loved ones and the environment, that:

  • Natural solutions do exist which work as well, or even better, than the commonly-available chemical-laden options,
  • Learning is necessary BUT it needn’t be hard or complicated,
  • We can harness the power of essential oils for almost every aspect of our lives. It is one of the most natural, effective and versatile solutions out there.

So join me in this journey towards more natural and healthy living. And if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, or just want to say hi, please do drop me a note either here on my site or to my email at ashley@theessentialoilspath.com.

Cheers,
Ashley
