Essential oils are the natural extracts of plants. We take those oils & use them to treat various problems we have. For instance, when I have a migraine I put peppermint oil on my temples & within 22 minutes that oil has reached every cell in my body. I get great relief & it's all natural! When Corbin gets congested we put some Breathe Again (combination of 4 different eucalyptus oils, peppermint, myrtle, & copaiba) on his chest & he is clear to breathe again in 20 min. It's fabulous!
I think what finally sold me was that someone made the point that these oils were in the Bible. This isn't just some shaman, witch doctor kinda thing. They gave Frankincense to Jesus when he was born. That's an oil! God made these plants to heal & help us everyday. I don't know about you but I'd rather use a natural product than a chemical that can cause side effects & other problems later in life.
So, my goal is to replace all my medications in my medicine cabinet with oils. Tylenol, ibuprophen, cold meds, allergy pills, etc all gone & oils in their places. It's working great for our family. A big plus for me is that I when I'm pregnant I choose not to use any medications unless absolutely necessary. Which means I suffer through allergy season (I'm allergic to SO many environmental things). But, I can use the oils in and not suffer from April through the first hard frost in November!
If this sounds compelling to you or you'd like more information on trying some oils for yourself, please contact me. I'd love to talk about it with you.
