As I sit here writing this post I’m still in a bit of disbelief how essential oils have really worked. I’m usually a quick fixer.. Something hurts? Take Tylenol or Pepto Bismal… Can’t sleep? Take a Gravol. Feeling Anxious or depressed? Take a pill..
I mean especially for those of us who are crazy busy – we only really have time to swallow a pill. I got my oils and I was pretty skeptical. Even as I was popping the stress free mix I made out of Lavender & Northern Lights Black Spruce.. I was like “This stuff smells good, but it probably wont work”
Within 20 minutes I was relaxed and within 1 hour I was a believer.
Did you know that when oils are applied topically they start to go into your system within minutes?
How Fast Do Essential Oils Work?
It’s seriously crazy! Worth every.single.penny. I paid 200.00 and that got me a big kit with a diffuser & oils. I’m still wondering how they even make money off of that..
I’ve had some emails with people asking about buying cheap oils from the stores or online. This is just my opinion, but they aren’t 100% pure. It’s like anything else. If you want to buy a knock off, go for it, but you probably wont get the same results. Young Living essential oils are pulled from the ground and go straight into the bottle. It’s called the “Seed To Seal” process. Young Living is quite frequently out of stock on some oils because if the crop doesn’t turn out, or something goes wrong, they wont use that crop. Unlike other brands that stretch the oils, dilute them or still bottle them.
Here’s an awesome article on essential oils that help with different issues. I mean, you don’t have to be a believer in these essential oils at all, but if something helps even a little with putting a kid to sleep who hasn’t slept since she was born, or crumbling warts off a kids hands when we’ve tried EVERYTHING ELSE, and mellowing a REALLY stressed mama out.. Gosh, totally worth the 200.00 kit! Plus, my house smells AMAZING.
Anyways, a little run down on how our week went. Lets start with Brinley:
She’s 17 months and hasn’t slept through the night once. She’s normally up 2-3 times to breastfeed a night. We have third baby syndrome and literally can’t let her cry – she’s our little princess. Anyways, This week I’ve had my diffuser going all day. Citrus, Wake -me-up mixes during the morning, anxious/stress free mixes during the afternoon, and sleepy time mixes from 7 pm on. Its literally insane to know that these little drops of essential oils in a cup of water in our diffuser have helped us so much this week.
Brinley slept through the next wednesday-friday night ( last night ). THREE nights in a row? How insane is that! I feel like a new mama!
He has 19 warts on his little hands. This poor boy. He’s 4 and he’s so self conscience of them. He washes his hands continually as he’s a clean freak, and we’ve tried topical home treatments and recently over the past 3 months, we’ve gone to the doctor 7 times to have them burned off, which is very painful. Nothing has worked and they keep spreading. I mainly bought my essential oil kit for Cai’s hands as I’ve read in numerous places how Oregano and/or Frankincense can aid in getting rid of warts. So I thought I would give it a go. I’m just so tired of Cai being shy of his hands and having him scared to go to the doctor. So Wednesday morning I started applying the frankincense mixed with a little bit of pure coconut oil to his hands. It’s day 4 and his warts are starting to crumble off. I’ll be posting a blog/photos of it once they’re completely gone.
He’s “mr.angrypants” as I like to tease him. He’s not very good at bottling his stress/anger in the shop. If something goes wrong, it pretty much affects everyones day. I made a stress free blend for him literally as SOON as my oils arrived and I mad him put it on his temples and chin. He wasn’t very pleased about it for the first day as he thought it was “smelly”… well, fast forward to the end of Wednesday and he made a comment about how the oils must be working as he was way more calm than usual.. even though a table he had been working on for a few days completely failed.
Fast forward to today, and he’s sniffing & rolling the oils like it’s no ones business…. LOL, it’s truly a sight to see. He’s hilarious. This big bearded guy rolling these little oils all over his body.
Also, he’s slept better this week than he has in a LONG time. He’s not a good sleeper. He goes to bed at 1-2 AM, sleeps very lightly and then gets up at 6-7 AM.
So I’m just going to focus on the anxiety aspect for me. The oils have had A LOT of benefits for me as I’ve been paying close attention, but I’m just going to focus on the anxiety – because it’s a big one.
The day I bought my kit I was snuggled in my bed crying. I don’t normally melt down, but that day was really really bad. I immediately popped a stress free mix into my diffuser, I also rolled some lavender on my wrists and I spent some time in prayer with God. By the end of my prayer, it was like I had clarity in my brain & I was totally mellowed out. Like I had a good drink.
This week has been long, so I’ve been diffusing & rolling this entire week.
I’m on anxiety medication as since starting my business I’ve not been able to deal with all the stress that well. But I’m in the process of weaning down as the oils have helped with headaches, anxiety, sleepless nights and allergies.
He just keeps saying that he loves the oils. This kid is a bit of a introvert, so he doesn’t really talk about his thoughts all that often.. but I’m sure we will figure out in no time at all if these little bottles of oil benefit him in any way!
I’m not a doctor, and I do not claim to know how to fix your problems. In this blog I’ve stated how these essential oils have helped me in a very short period of time, but everyone is different and you should always do your own research and decide for yourself and/or talk to your doctor to figure out the best plan of attack for YOU.
I’m just sharing my love for these essential oils and letting you know what benefit they’ve had on my family in such a incredibly short period of time. I rarely share a review on a product, so that must mean that I REALLY love it.
