I jumped on the Essential Oil band wagon.
I know you have seen blog posts everywhere about people that use it & all that it can do. If you haven't seen it there, its on Facebook... & Pinterest? Forget about it... it's everywhere...
& that's where I'll be today. Learning all about it.
I'm a person who is all about natural things. Natural food, natural medicine. So this idea of an natural oil that can help with issues intrigues me.
But it can't be real - right? I mean, its oil...
Well, a friend asked me to try it for my bicep tendonitis. I am always willing to try anything for that pain. Tell me that dancing in the streets in an Elsa outfit will help it, I'll do it... or I'll just do it because that sounds like fun...
|Plus, I would just like to do this move over & over
So I bought Lemongrass & an oil called Panaway to give it a go. Now, it wasn't cheap... but like I said, I'll pay whatever... & it'll STILL be cheaper then if I went to a doctor with my health insurance. (Like how I snuck in another health insurance slam there? ... speaking of which, I need to start looking for a new plan next week. Thanks Obama.)
I tried it. Only 1 or 2 drops on the place that hurts. Well, my arms hurts a LOT in a LOT of area so I'd add a few more drops of lemongrass... & maybe it was in my mind, but it eased off the pain.
& I keep reading about how people use these during cold & flu season & that right there is speaking my language.
So I took the leap & bought the started kit & became an official Young Living Essential Oil person...
I told Ricky about it ... & the 'conversation' began. Yes, conversation is in quotes because it was more of a debate.
Ricky: I can get on the internet & find articles that say it doesn't work.
Me: You can get on the internet & type in is this oil made of cat pee & you'll probably find an article. You'll find an article about anything on the internet.
so the true test... Ricky has a pain in his elbow. Has had it for months. I pull out the Panaway & rub about 2 drops on it.
He gripes & says things like "This is so stupid"
... & I'm editing wedding pictures & all of a sudden, I hear laughing. He's behind me on the couch moving his elbow around cracking up like Harvey Dent told him some joke I missed out on.
I asked if he inhaled too much of that oil or something & he said, "My elbow doesn't hurt"... & then just kept laughing like its some sort of trick I did on him.
Granted, his elbow was aching again this morning... & I told him to put some more oil on it ... which I bet he will tonight when he gets home...
but maybe he's going to believe in it a little bit more...
Maybe I'm going to be in my natural health heaven with this.
I'm sure my family & friends will get sick of me very soon when I tell them to put peppermint on their temples when they have a headache instead of taking an aspirin.
So today, if you need me, I'm going to be on Pinterest finding out all about these oils... which ones I need to double up on... how exactly I need to apply these ... how to combine them for the uber health combo that I need.
Maybe there's an oil to make my brain switch out of germaphobe mood...
I bet I find it on Pinterest...
Do you use Essential Oils?
