Almost 2 years ago I got suckered into buying a small starter kit of essential oils. I wasn’t really on board and convinced that they helped promote a healthier life style for my family, but I decided to help my friend with her new business.
Shortly before buying, my 5 week old went into the hospital with a temp over 104• with major congestion, breathing struggles and refusal to breast feed. While there she went through a series of test that scared the S#*T out of me…blood work, urinalysis AND a spinal tap. Needless to say I was scared sick, but of course that time affected me more than her. Diagnosis…upper respiratory infection. After 24 hours at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, with top of the line care, my baby was 90% better and on her way home!
With 3 other children at home and 2 of them in school (1st and preschool) it was inevitable that more germs were going to make their way into my home. So that’s when I decided to go ahead and make that jump into using doTERRA Easential Oils in our every day routine and life style.
To be honest, I wasn’t too sure what the hype was all about. I didn’t see much change, or improvement in things. But it also took me a few weeks to really get used to using them consistently. Then BAM! Once I did start using EO on a regular basis things got so much better…immune systems boosted, behaviors improved, sleep quality better and not to mention the aroma around the house was/is amazing!
I now use oils daily to…
clean (surfaces, furniture and air)
Promote healthy digestion
Care for seasonal threats (allergies) in myself, husband and kids. We actually are off of over the counter meds
Boost everyone’s immune systems
Promote healthy and stable sleep patterns in my kids and myself
Improve concentration, focus and irritability
Promote feelings of peace and relaxation
In my skin and hair products
Help relieve aches and pains
So much more!!!
Over the past week I have been relying on my oils a lot more than usual to help me get through he never ending days and chaos.
I am quite happy that I reluctantly ordered some oils and have been very thankful for them ever since. Learning about them is an ongoing process and always excited to do so. Interested in learning more or trying some…I would be honored to introduce you to the oily life.
