So my wife came to me about a month ago asking me if she could buy some essential oils. She said they would help our kids sleep better, and I said BUY as much as you want!! As you will read in the review below from my wife our two kids are not the best sleepers. ( we have been sleep deprived for 4 years!!)
I know this post is a bit different from the normal creative business/ diy post , but I wanted to share with you all a little something that has changed our lives!
Our essential oils (EOs) arrived on July 31st, exactly one month ago today. Here’s my one-month review and exactly how I’ve used them for our little family. My only regret is that I didn’t start using them a long time ago!
*I started using my Lemon EO about 2 weeks ago and have lost 4 pounds. Why didn’t I start doing this the day I got the kit? Or 5 years ago?? Literally one drop in a glass of water twice a day, and I’ve lost 4 pounds. Love it!
*Camden has woken up twice in the past month with a yucky cough and runny nose. Each time, I mixed up one drop each of Lemon, Peppermint & Thieves with coconut oil & rubbed it all over his chest, back of his neck & feet and within minutes, the coughing stopped, and literally never returned the rest of the day or even days after. With all his little friends & cousins back in school, plus AWANA resuming this coming week, you can imagine how excited I am to now have some sort of defense against all the yucky stuff kids share.
*One morning, Macy woke up extra fussy & tugging at her right ear. Of course…this is usually a sign of an ear infection on the way. For us as self-employed people, this means an expensive trip to the Dr. is also on the way. I mixed up 1 drop each of Thieves, Lavender & Purification & Vitamin E oil, rubbed it on the outside of her ear & down the side of her neck & she stopped tugging on her ear & her mood changed completely within an hour. No ear infection ever developed!
*I get the worst canker sores but thanks to Thieves oil, I’ve been able to make them disappear within a day or two, as opposed to two weeks, like usual! Tim had 2 canker sores starting just yesterday, and he used a drop of Thieves on each one, and today, he woke up & they are gone. For real.
*I’ve fought off a bad sore throat by rubbing Thieves oil directly on my neck & diffusing it in the living room. Sore throat was zapped in minutes! (Thieves is basically a miracle oil, if you haven’t noticed!
*We made up a mixture of “Sleepy Cream” using Lavender, Peace & Calming, Valor & Coconut oil & we rub it on Camden’s feet, chest & neck every night. He doesn’t wake up AT ALL anymore…not even go to potty or because he’s having a bad dream. For everyone who’s been friends with me since Camden came along, you know that sleep has been an issue since he was born! This has been a miracle-worker for him & he LOVES getting his “sleepy oils” on before bed. He even asks for it every night! Macy is hit or miss with sleep but she’s still nursing, she just started crawling (developmental milestones always mess with sleep), and she’s teething something awful. We do notice that she is more calm once we start the diffuser and she usually goes to sleep faster, too! We have hope that once a tooth pops, she will have the same results as Camden.
*Tim has relieved headaches & sore muscles almost instantly with Peppermint and Panaway.
*I am in my busy season for work which means my schedule is jam-packed every day & I admit that I get anxious at times when I think of all I have to juggle. Some Stress-Away & Joy on my wrists/neck helps me feel more relaxed & less-stressed. (Reading my Bible, plus applying some Stress Away & Joy is my ultimate anxiety-defense these days.)
We don’t struggle with allergies, asthma or eczema, but I have friends who do, and they have come off all prescriptions for these 3 things thanks to these Young Living EOs! Amazing. Bottom line…we’ve gone from oil-skeptics to oil-lovers in one month flat. Why oh why didn’t we do this a long time ago?!
If you’re ready to take the plunge, I’ve included step-by-step signup instructions below. You won’t regret it! Also…starting today for 2 weeks, Young Living is including Sacred Frankincense (cancer-fighter/tumor-shrinking oil) & Di-Gize (the all-around tummy issue oil), two of their most popular & more expensive oils in the premium starter kit. This is a HUGE bonus on top of the already-awesome oils that come with it & I am literally buying another kit for myself just to get a 2nd diffuser and these 2 amazing oils at a massive discount!
