Back in September, I posted about essential oils. I said that we were waiting for out kit to arrive from Young Living and that I would update you about our essential oils journey. I am here today to tell you about it. What a journey it has been so far!
We got our Young Living Essential Oils Premium Starter kit on September 26, 2013. I was so excited – stalking the front porch, constantly looking for the UPS truck. When the kit arrived, I immediately opened it up, got the diffuser out and starting diffusing Thieves and Peppermint essential oils. All I can honestly say is “wow!” I truly fell in love with the diffuser within a minute of pressing the button to turn it on. It really pumped out the mixture of water and oils in a nice, cool mist.
My family and I had a little cold at this time so I was excited to really put the oils to the test. Of course, like a lot of people, I was pretty skeptical with all of the hubbub I had been hearing about how great these oils were and all of the different ailments they can help with. Like I said in my post back in September, I am very familiar with essential oils but until this point, I had only used aromatic oils, not therapeutic. I really could not imagine what all the fuss was about.
I diffused Thieves and Peppermint twice that day (it smelled so wonderful) and rubbed Thieves on the bottom of our feet diluted with coconut oil. What I first noticed was that our colds really started to clear up quickly – like by that evening we were all starting to feel much better. With my asthma, I usually hang onto a cold for a couple of weeks and then the cough lingers even longer – up to a month. So, for me to start feeling better that night really sparked my curiosity as to what these oils were all about.
Hmmm… maybe, just maybe there really was something to these oils. Since that first day, we have been using the oils every single day. We diffuse at least twice a day. We bought another kit because we love the oils so much and we wanted another diffuser. We would now like two more diffusers so we are saving up for them!
All of us have benefited way more than I could ever imagine. We have used the oils now for anything and everything that an OTC and RX med would handle. The oils have worked even better than the traditional meds for us. We are teaching our kids to use an oil instead of grabbing a medicine that has harmful chemicals.
We have used these oils for asthma (I am completely off of my medication now because of these oils. They have worked for me. I am not telling you to go and get off your meds at all, you have to find what works for you), allergies, scrapes, cuts, bruises, scratches, pms, pmdd (pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder), headaches (all kinds), stomach aches, back aches, muscle aches, runny nose, stuffy nose, acne, sleep issues (I will talk about this in more detail later – I used to wake up at 2am every single night and would be awake for at least an hour. Not anymore at all), coughs, flu, stomach bug (went through us in 8 hours and we went out and about the next day, no problem), dry skin, oily skin, cracked skin on our fingers, eczema, psoriasis, cleaning (Thieves cleaner has replaced all our cleaning supplies and there are no chemicals in it), cooking, remove permanent marker from the walls, cold sore, canker sore, sore throat, swollen gums, energy, depression, hyperactivity, mood lifter, libido, weight loss and detoxing. I am certain that I have forgotten one or two or three different things that we use these amazing oils for. You get the idea… “There’s an oil for that!”
