I think I’ve mentioned it before in my previous posts but this girl has anxiety. The anxiety sometimes can be dibilitating & in 2013 I decided to go on a really low dose of anxiety medication.
There are times ( frequently ) where I will forget to refill a prescription and/or forget to take my medication. This is my life. I’m forgetful and busy. Well, this past week we had a massive snow storm hit. Most of our town shut down. Doctors offices were not open and we couldn’t even get out of our driveway as we had over three feet of snow. I was without medication for 6 days.
Now here’s the thing. I can easily control my anxiety with my essential oils, so that isn’t he problem. The problem was that once you go off a medication cold turkey, you get these painful withdrawal symptoms like pings in your head, you feel like you have the flu constantly, intense headaches, spinning, your head feels like it weighs 500 pounds. These are the things I needed to control. It was pretty awful and something I wouldn’t wish on anything.
Cue in my trusty little oil, Bergamot. This oils is distilled from the earth & when using a high grade oil like Young Living oils which have absolutely no fillers, it can be extremely powerful and affective. I would apply to the back of my neck, bottom of my big toe & behind my ears to get he maximum benefit. I would apply the oil, lay down for a few moments, and the amount of pain it took away was incredible. I wont say it took the pain away fully, but over half which is insane.
I’ve had withdrawal symptoms in the past and I’ve taken Tylenol, Advil etc and they haven’t done a thing. So when you can use a organic & natural product to help your body it is kind go magical.
Why am I blogging about this? Because in the next 3 months I will be slowly weaning off of my medication. Something that I’ve used for almost 5 years now to help stabilize my anxiety. It has sometimes felt like a jail as this drug makes me tired and I sometimes my mind feel numb. I’m weaning off this medication due to the power of essential oils. I’ve used essential oils for just about everything under the sun now for about 10 months.
I really hate posting about my essential oils. Not because I don’t love them and use them every day, but every time I post about them, I loose thousands of followers & lots of subscribers. This is why I haven’t posted about them since last August. It’s been pretty frustrating. But I just had to post this time. If I can help anyone have hope that there is a life outside of medication. There is.
I highly suggest you look into Bergamot & the uses for this amazing oil. Or if looking to purchase a premium starter kit & get started with essential oils, I’m your girl.
Hope you guys are having an amazing day & I promise, there wont be another oil post for a good long time. But just know that these little bottles of oils are so amazing.
Why do they stand out in compared to store bought brands? Because our oils are distilled with no fillers or other crap. Our company stands by the seed to seal process.
Have a wonderful week and I’ve got a big pretty blog coming up soon!
