For the next three years, daily digestion became painful, with cramps and irritable-bowel-syndrome symptoms — none of which she’d experienced prior to the antibiotics. Diet overhauls, from vegan to juicing only to gluten-free, brought no relief. Fast-forward to a friend who, ignorant of Kelly’s health woes, introduced the massage therapist to essential oils as an asset for her practice. A sample of a doTERRA product called DigestZen intrigued Kelly, and she started rubbing a few drops of the oil on her belly after eating. “That bottle was the only thing that helped me reset my gut — it saved my world,” she says. Shannon Rowland, assistant manager for the Leaves and Roots store on Colonial Drive just west of Econlockhatchee Trail, came to essential oils when she couldn’t find a successful cure for her chronic fatigue — although she’s quick to stress that essential oils cannot be called medicine for her, or any other, condition. Instead, she considers them herbal remedies to help the body heal. And that’s what most customers seeking them out are after: advice on which oils can assist with what ails. Rowland will offer guidance, but she much prefers empowering customers to seek out the knowledge for themselves. Then experiment. In the Leaves and Roots shop, a bookshelf of herbal guides, as well as several laminated charts, steer newcomers to what might work best for them. Depression is aided by grapefruit oil. Rosemary can bring clearer thinking. Jasmine, sage, neroli, pine, rose and a host of other oils can all help with anxiety. When a condition matches a handful of essential oils, Rowland recommends smelling each to determine which you respond to the most. “Nine times out of 10, it smells good to you for a reason,” she says. Intuition is a large part of the essential-oil process. Just as our bodies are intrinsically capable of healing a cut or fighting infection, we are inherently drawn to what’s best for us. She adds, “The oil that appeals to you most — even if you think it’s not working — will work the best for you.” But aromatherapy diffuser again, Rowland doesn’t want you to take her word for it. Most commonly, essential oils are used in diffusers with water, but applying them directly to the skin can be much more potent.
