If you have been around the internet lately, you may have seen a sudden rise in this essential oil hulla-ba-loo. Even I admit – it’s been on a drastic rise lately.
With all the chaos surrounding it, I wanted to share my essential oil story and how it has helped my family.
Maybe you will take something from it, maybe you won’t.
My Essential Oil Story
In January 2013, I was a little over a month away from delivering A and my anxiety was through the roof.
I had been off of medication (because I was pregnant) and was scheduled for a c-section.
Not an emergency c-section where I had already been in labor all day and was then rushed to the hospital and so tired everything after that is a blur.
An actual, I’m going to the hospital well aware of what was going on, scheduled c-section.
A friend saw my posts on Facebook and recommended I meet with her about a more natural solution that would not interfere with my pregnancy.
Since I knew I was delivering at the end of February and I had hoped to nurse, I knew that medication would be a long way off so I needed something more natural.
This is when essential oils entered my life.
It’s funny to look back at that 2 years ago because really, I got into essential oils with a lot of skepticism from hubby. He really wasn’t sure what to think of this quack oil stuff, but I am happy to report that Mr. Skeptical now uses the oils more than I do!
If something hurts, his first question to me is “did you try this oil?” (Sometimes you just want to smack him because he’s right, but he was the skeptical one in the first place!)
We have used our oils for everything from ear aches to eczema to diaper rashes. They help clean our house, help our colds and coughs, and even keep the bugs away!
Most recently, essential oils have helped with tummy aches in our home. (Trust me, I will be sharing all of our remedies in time!)
All members of our family – young and old – use essential oils and we have found them to be very helpful in our home.
More to Come
In the coming days, weeks, and months; I will be sharing posts on how we use essential oils in our life.
I have also decided to transition from an essential oil ‘user’ to an essential oil ‘business builder’. I will be sharing more information on that later, but I want to add that (a) I am not here to compete with any one else or any other company. It’s not who I am.
(b) I am not here to pressure anyone to use essential oils, buy essential oils, or sell essential oils. I have found them helpful to my family. If they are helpful to you and yours, great. If it’s not your thing, please feel free to skip that post!
(c) Post I share may be oil specific to my essential oil ‘business’ but that does not mean that oils from another company that have the same make up but different name, won’t work.
(d) I am always open to answering questions about essential oils. Period.
