Sluggish Liver?

Our precious livers do not get enough credit. Our liver is the largest internal organ, and one that performs over 500 vital functions so we can live. One of those critical functions is the detoxification, or breakdown of toxins to clean up our bodies, and the metabolism of drugs. Along with our kidneys, our liver is one of the main filters of the body, filtering out waste and these broken down toxins and sending them to be excreted from the body via the urinary tract or the bowels. Our liver really is an amazing organ!



So is Your Liver Sluggish?

Symptoms of a sluggish liver include things like indigestion, bloating, headaches, digestive headaches (from what you ate), acne, eczema, high cholesterol and blood lipid levels, fatigue, water retention, and disturbed sleep. So what can you do for a sluggish liver? As far as essential oils go, they have shown to be very effective in aiding detoxification in the liver, helping the liver to clean itself up, and supporting healthy liver function.

Which Oils to Use for the Liver

As far as essential oils go, some of them have shown in studies to be very effective in supporting the liver and aiding liver detox. Before using ANY essential oils for the liver, you should clearly understand that if you use essential oils to support the liver they must be USDA certified organic and have the USDA organic seal right on the label, or you cannot take them internally. Even if someone tells you that they are ‘as good as’ organic or ‘beyond’ organic (both of these terms are incorrect and actually illegal because they would confuse consumers and have them believe that some nonorganic products are better than certified organic products – which they are not). So be ultra careful about this. Do not risk your or your liver’s health by using the lower grade, toxic pesticides laced NONorganic essential oils. They are cheaper, but they are NOT the same. We cannot stress enough how important this is for your health!
