I can almost feel the eyes rolling. But before you think I’ve jumped off the deep end hear me out. Before Pumpkin I had never heard of essential oils. I’m not sure if it’s something only moms bring into the families, or if it’s just being in a neighborhood or area where people are more open to treatments other than drugs.
Essential Oils have been on my mind for over a year. I went to talks from the two top brands (in the area) dōTERRA and Young Living. Recently I was invited to a “Make and Take” for Young Living. I made up my mind to make the commitment to try essential oils.
I have heard of the oils helping various symptoms on various ages. I had also heard it can be dangerous if not used correctly. Pumpkin seems to get sick easily, I have all my aches and pains and my husband has some health issues too. I felt like if there was ever a time to try it, it was now.
The “Make and Take” was a nice way to learn about the various oils in a fun environment. I got to spend time with a friend and make new friends. Makes a HUGE difference in learning and feeling like there is a local community around using the oils.
I’m going to blog about my using the oils and what seems to work etc. At the Make and Take I made the following:
Unwind -Sugar Scrub
Made up of Lavender and Stress Away
Ache Away – Roller Ball
Made up of Peppermint, PanAway, and Lemongrass
Air Freshener – Room Spray
Made up of Citrus Fresh
Ache Away – Vapor Rub
Made up of Peppermint, PanAway and Lemongrass
Made up of Thieves and Lemon
I used the Aches roller ball on my knee which hurt from the amount of walking I did that day (Little Gym combined with a Toddler event). The pain went away. The oils felt soothing and the pain didn’t come back. Hubby says it was a placebo affect and so we’ll see as I continue to use it. But I am definitely excited. I should get my kit in a couple of weeks! Do you use oils? What are your favorite ways to use them?
