I've had quite a few people email me lately in regards to the oils we use. I've tried to get back with everyone but I thought I'd post again here so that everyone can see it.
It's just a hunch I've got.....but something tells me that you are starting to freak out about ObamaCare. If you aren't freaking out, then you should probably start. I've seen countless friends on Facebook that have posted and complained that their monthly premiums are doubling and their coverage is going down. Who knows if anyone will be able to afford a regular doctor visit in the future. How much will it cost? And what kind of wait will there be now that those extra million people are about to be insured?
If you haven't started thinking about a way to self treat yourself, then you better get on it. I'm serious.
I've always said there is a time and place for medicine and doctors. But I've always leaned towards the conservative side as far as antibiotics and doctors and all that. I've been drawn towards the homeopathic/natural side of treating issues for as long as I can remember. Lately, I've been getting lots of questions about it.....and oils are just one part of the equation.
After doing some research, I decided to use Young Living oils. There are lots of oils on the market but they are not all created equal. I do not want to get into a debate here. Some people are pretty passionate about their company of choice and I refuse to get into the mud slinging that others partake in. This is a personal choice and I'm pleased and happy with it. Yes, you can google and find some bad stuff about YL. Let me first say that just because it's on the internet.....that does NOT make it true. There are other companies out there that go to great measures to toss this company under the bus. Because I do not "sell" or work this as a business, I do not get quite as emotional as others do. I do tell people about how these oils have helped our family and if people choose to use them then that is awesome. I will help you however I can.
Here are just a few oils we use at our house:
Did you know that these oils can be taken internally? Yep, they are 100% therapeutic so they are safe to ingest. When allergies start messing with me, I pour lemon and lavender and peppermint into a blank capsule and create an "allergy shot." Helps so much. For my kiddos that don't swallow pills....I put a drop of each on the bottom of their feet.
Cooper is actually the reason I started using oils. When his coughing and restrictive airway starts acting up......I start slathering him with Raven and RC and Eucalyptus Blue. I put it on his back and chest and the bottom of his feet. This keeps him from coughing at night. I haven't done a single breathing treatment since we started using them. And if you remember the end of summer then you know we were up every. single. night doing treatments because his allergies were out of control. I also diffuse these by his bed at night.
Vertigo runs in my family. I get it from time to time but it seems ever since I had my car accident back in April....I get it more often. I rub ginger behind my ears and smell ginger and tangerine from the bottle and it takes it away or makes it more manageable.
Sweet boy has struggled with gastritis (inflammation of the stomach/intestines) and all these help with that.
Have diarrhea, an upset tummy or stomach cramps. Digize will take it away. Seriously.
Have an overactive child? I put these on Hudson's feet before school and this helps to keep him calm and grounded.
Sweet boy had issues with his prostate a couple months ago. I asked him before getting a prescription if we could try oils first. Knocked that right out with just these 2 oils.
Tight neck or sore muscles? These are your friends!
Have a mole or skin tag you want gone? We have removed one from Shawn's leg with using this oil twice a day on it. Bam!
Both boys have this diffuser in their room. If Cooper's cough is lingering then I will diffuse RC or Raven. Sometimes Hudson will get Peace and Calming to help him sleep. Most days, I just diffuse Thieves because that will kill 99% of the yucky airborne stuff. I also put a drop of Thieves on their feet at night just as a preventative.
We have more oils than these but you get the idea. We are able to treat headaches, strep, leg/growing pains, allergies, sore throat, etc.......all without medication.
Lots of people have asked how they can get started? Personally, I chose the Premium starter kit (comes with 10 of the most common/everyday oils and the diffuser) and also the RC for Cooper's cough stuff. I have bought a ton more since then for other issues and we have been happy with the results.
If you purchase a starter kit, you don't have to pay the $40 enrollment fee and you get wholesale pricing. You are not forced to buy a certain amount each month and you don't have to sign up for a monthly autoship. No risk! (they do have a great program if you do choose to buy every month thru an autoship. You can earn free oils and it's a great way to add to your inventory)
Go to Young Living and look around. If you do decide to try it, become a member/distributor (choose distributor instead of customer) and pay only the wholesale price (enter my member number 1497619 as the referral number in both places) and please contact me if you have any questions. I would love to help you out! For anyone that buys the premium starter kit......I will send you the $25 fast start bonus that they pay me (I'm honestly not doing this for the $) to go towards the Essential Oils reference book. This book has a wealth of information and is essential when using oils. It will tell you exactly which oil to use for each issue/ailment.
Hope that helps!!
