Balanced Essentials began as …

Posted on: October 3rd, 2017

Balanced Essentials Aromatherapy began as a vision in May 1996 to provide a balance between conventional and alternative with emphasis on educating and supporting people in their endeavour to heal themselves. Cheryl Gilbert, owner, creator and the energy behind Balanced Essentials began her love of fragrance as a child mixing her aunt's expensive French perfumes. An intense interest in Aromatherapy and a desire to create her own products developed into producing the Balanced Essentials range. Most people that are drawn to aromatherapy do so out of a desire to reduce the stress in their...

BE RELIEVED, BE SPORT, BE LITE … Which one do I chose?

Posted on: September 13th, 2017

It's really very simple. BE RELIEVED is our most popular pain relief product and that's because it's so versatile. As well as helping with pain and inflammation it is also very calming and is the best one to use at night to help with sleep. Geranium oil is used for its anti-inflammatory properties, while Bergamot and Orange are used for their anti-spasmodic properties. Neroli helps with calming and is used in aromatherapy for shock and grief. BE RELIEVED also combines lavender and marjoram for their pain relief and sedative properties.  BE SPORT is a good choice when you need a...

Why is it better to use a natural analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic? Let’s look at the synthetic alternative.

Posted on: July 7th, 2017

Paracetamol is the most widely prescribed and recommended systemic analgesic used to relieve pain. It has no curative abilities, yet you often hear people comment that the doctor told them to “go home and have some paracetamol” without fully realising that it only masks the condition or complaint. Pharmaceutical analgesics do not work on the cause of pain itself – only the sensation. Paracetamol in new health ALERT: Doctors warned over prescribing daily painkiller. Taking a daily paracetamol tablet could put you at risk of deadly heart disease and kidney failure, a new study suggests.

The best thing about essential oils.

Posted on: July 7th, 2017

I’ve been involved in the natural health industry now for just over twenty years and if there is one thing that I love the most about essential oils it is their versatility. No other form of healing can match them.  Be it in the way they are applied - taken by mouth (as in France), applied to the skin; vapourised or added to a bath; and for the incredible number of conditions that they treat. These concentrated extracts from plants are DNA encoded to help humans and animals. They lovingly embrace us when we feel sad, they remove our pain, they help us breath better, they encourage our...

We need more nurturing and care during the winter months.

Posted on: June 19th, 2017

I’ve had many people ask me what I do to keep well during the autumn and winter months.  Often when it’s cold we feel like hibernating (I know I do) which is a natural response to protect your body from the cold.  Winter is when we have to cope with more dust and dirt within our homes, as we tend to stay indoors where we are warm and cosy.   Good organic food, vitamins, minerals and the use of essential oils and colloidal silver are what I find keeps my body in balance and boosts my immune system.  I still get sick occasionally, we all do, but I find in my case it’s more due to...

If you have some of these symptoms you may have irritable bowel disease

Posted on: March 29th, 2017

Essential oils can help as they are anti-inflammatory and they also relax the bowel due to their antispasmodic properties. Around one in five Australians experiences the unpleasant symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) at some time. These include abdominal pain, mucus in the stools, and alternating diarrhoea and constipation. Other terms for irritable bowel syndrome include ‘spastic colon’ and ‘irritable colon’. It seems that people with IBS have sensitive bowels that are easily ‘upset’. More women than men are prone to IBS, and symptoms tend to first occur in early...

Many people are now having to treat themselves as the health system fails us.

Posted on: March 16th, 2017

When I was young I looked up to my doctor with awe and respect. To be honest I was very scared of him, but I knew never to doubt his authority over my body.  What he said was taken as truth by my mother and so if I needed medicine or treatment of any kind it was never questioned. It took many, many years for me to even realise that there were other ways to heal myself as my faith in my doctor and his allopathic system was absolute. Now, a large percentage of people don't even have a regular doctor as our reliance on medical centres has grown due to the shortage of good general...

When our medical system seems like a comedy of errors…

Posted on: March 16th, 2017

CARMEL'S STORY began when she tripped over the garden hose and landed on her hand. Carmel had been filling up the water trough for her very much loved alpaca's and miniature donkeys when she came a cropper. Thinking that not much damage was done she just kept applying BE RELIEVED. A couple of weeks later she decided to go to the doctor and have an x-ray as it was still a little tender, but not swollen. When the doctor advised that it wasn't broken she just assumed that it would take time to heal. Another couple of weeks passed and as it was still painful Carmel went back to the medical...

Can’t live without your chips?

Posted on: February 1st, 2017

Do you love your chips but worry that they are too unhealthy? There are some things you can do to make them a better choice. Your body's cells and tissues require a slightly alkaline environment to function properly. If you are too acidic this sets the stage for numerous conditions and diseases, including cancer, chronic fatigue and inflammation. If your body is acidic for a longer period of time the aging process will be rapidly accelerated. Your body must buffer and remove the acidic residues to maintain homeostasis. A diet high in acid-forming foods such as sugar, drinks and beverages...
