"Wow, everyone is talking about essential oils." - My husband.
Odds are that you know someone that uses essential oils, has been approached to try essential oils (EO's), or [insert oily story here]. I've always had a very loose and generic association with oils, using Lavender in my bath or added to body lotion, add to homemade balms/lotions, etc. Never having any idea that essential oils could offer any benefit other than a nice smelling experience (which is, don't get me wrong, a highly valued enterprise). During the birth of our second son, Coen McCartney, the third labor nurse came on shift (long labor, I know) and asked if I was open to her using oils to soothe me. I am open to anything I quickly replied. And as I soaked in the amazing giant hot tub on the birthing unit at Anna Jacques Birth Center, Nurse Mary put a couple drops of her "Labor Blend" in her hands, had me do three deep inhales, and I sank into relaxation. A few weeks later I was given an opportunity that would shift the course of my family wellness journey.
My dear, dear friend (Holistic healer, yoga instructor, HypnoBirthing instructor, CST, and HypnoTherapist) had been using very specific essential oils during our many prenatal massage sessions for months. A premium full-body and mind relaxation always occurred during these sessions that I am a bit of a loss to adequately do justice to. Any of you mamas out there can understand how amazing it is to be lifted out of the physical challenges of pregnancy for awhile and just be overwhelmed in the bliss. This same friend sat me down a couple weeks after the birth of our son and talked to me about Young Living Essential Oils. My trust in her is 100%, so without many questions, I said sign me up!
A few days later while my Premium Starter Kit was on order I developed a mastitis infection of my milk duct. I asked if there was an oil for that (I've since learned, there is always an oil for that), and next day she brought me Geranium & Lavender. I applied topically to the source of the infection, and within 48 hours the infection and blockage was gone. I had the same infection with my first son and had to be put on antibiotics for 10 days. Proof enough for me, however anecdotal. After this first WOW! introduction to using essential oils in place of pharmaceuticals (which are synthetic versions of essential oils with lots of preservatives and toxins added). Next was the anxiety bashing experience of PEACE & CALMING for my darling hubby, and diaper rash wonder blend of Lavender & Mel A. I couldn't stop! I was so completely excited at the real life results I was getting while smelling every so delicious!
My family indulged me at let me play apothecary on them over the holidays. Cleared my a battle with acne using Mel A, helped a sinus infection with Peppermint, and one night put them all to sleep early by rubbing the aforementioned PEACE & CALMING on their feet. Beyond the daily uses for energy, clarity, nice skin, anxiety, weigh loss, sore muscles, etc - the evidence that essential oils can play a vital role in detoxifying your body and improve your natural immune system function is HUGE for me. With all the people in our lives battles with different forms of cancer, creating toxin-free environments for us and our children seems like it should be priority #1. Reversing damage done, doing no further harm, and improving our bodies ability to fight off disease and illness naturally? Yes, please!
"I love this product so much that I would be doing a DISSERVICE to my friends and family (that includes all Facebook acquaintances as well :) if I did not share my story and what I know these products can do for your families health & wellness. I was resistant and honestly, a bit nervous to promote the fact that I am a distributor of Young Living Essential Oils. I am coming out of my oily shell."
