CHAGRIN FALLS, OH (WOIO) -Cold and flu season is here and we’re taking a closer look at alternative remedies to help fight off the bugs.
Essential oils have been around since ancient times, but they are making a strong resurgence. Sales are expected to top 11 billion dollars by 2022. So why the comeback and do they work?
A few little drops of essential oil in her water is part of Renee Shott's 'immune system pep-up' routine. She swears by it.
"I have not, knock on wood, been really sick in probably over a year," said Renee Shott, Meadowbrook Natural Wellness Center Owner.
The Wellness Center owner uses a blend called thieves, a combination of eucalyptus, rosemary and cinnamon.
"This is the life energy of the plant. The essential oil that comes through the plant is what keeps it healthy,” said Shott.
The FDA has been cracking down on essential oil companies, claiming that products are being marketed as unapproved drugs. The big issue is the claim that oils have 'healing' or 'curing' capabilities.
"They don't want people making medical claims, saying one of these oils will cure whatever problem you have," said Shott.
Shott thinks the increase in medical problems is the reason for this new found popularity with oils.
"I think people are looking to go back to nature, to make it more simple."
When looking for essential oils make sure it's labeled 100% pure on the bottle. Research the company it's from to make sure it's reputable. If there's an expiration date that could be a red flag that synthetic materials are in it.
Before you try essential oils, consult an expert first. Do your research because these oils are potent and you want to make sure you are using them properly.

The month of April has been Stress Awareness month. Have you taken any steps to eliminate some stress? It's never too late. Start small, just by taking a moment to breathe and find beauty in something nearby or a favorite memory. Focus on how you feel when you think about this item/memory. Hang onto that happy feeling and take it with you whenever you feel stressed. Remember that while we may not be able to control stressful situations from happening, we can choose how we handle that situation. Be the best person you can be and smile! (Smile even when no one else is around-it instantly makes you feel better!)
