Essential oils have improved and changed our family’s health and have helped us clear so many harmful toxins and chemicals out of our home. I would say that I am FAR from your “All Natural” health fanatic but realizing every day the importance of incorporating more natural health options into our lives. I have realized how dangerous and toxic so many of our everyday household items can be and how important it is to pay attention to everything that we are putting in and on our bodies. So many products can affect us negatively, from the foods we eat, to the products we use to wash our bodies, clothes and home. My children and my self use to take ibuprofen at the drop of a hat, knowing it is so harmful to our stomachs, and toxic to our kidneys, yet it was all I knew to do when we were in pain. I was clueless as to alternatives to our everyday medicines, and to be honest, quite skeptical of anything that was considered “natural” or “non-traditional.”
With that being said, I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils in November of 2013. I had chronic ear infections to the point that I was on antibiotics about every other month, and on daily steroid drops in my ears. It was AWFUL and at times I would say to my husband, “I would cut my ears off if I could.” I know why babies and children cry when they get ear infections……THEY HURT. I was desperate to try anything. I was given a few oils to try to help clear up the double ear infection that I had at that time, and much to my amazement, they worked! I am not going to lie though, it still took me over 4 months to order my own premium starter kit. Since that time, all of my family members have fallen in love with different oils. We use them for occasional nervousness (FDA won’t let me use the term anxiety), acne, bug bites, headaches, to ward of illnesses and boost the immune system, and just help with everyday aches and pains rather than using those toxic over the counter medications. NO more ear infections (coming up on 2 years now), no more going through bottles of ibuprofen. Every room in my house has essential oils of some sort. I can honestly say that I TRULY can not imagine being without oils. I am only saddened at the fact that Young Living has been around for over 20 years and I didn’t know about them sooner. My children are OBSESSED with the oils and many times during prayers they will state that they are thankful that we have essential oils in our home.
Essential oils help me do what I love to do, and that is to help people. I am a nurse and I think that for the most part we can say that most nurses are caretakers. I LOVE nothing more than someone saying to me, “THANK YOU for Helping me.” Those words make me feel so good inside, knowing that I helped someone else get through whatever they were struggling with at that time. Essential oils take my care-taking role to a whole new level. I am able to help people live a healthier, more abundant, and purposeful life. Whether the oils have helped them with mental issues or physical issues, they have helped someone’s life improve and since I helped bring that improvement to them, I am fulfilled.
