Welcome to my Oily-Adventure blog. I am so excited to start a new journey with essential oils. As a family of four, we strive to live a chemical free life. Everyday we are bombarded with harmful chemicals in products we use daily, like our beauty products, soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, laundry soaps, dishwashing soaps, our all purpose cleaners, I can go on and on. I might not be able to control the production of these things but I can control what comes in through my threshold . And so can you. I am going to share with you 3 ways you can you use essential oils. 1) AROMATICALLY 2) TOPICALLY 3) INTERNALLY
How I Got Started
I have for many years used essential oils. First of all I am by no means a certified aroma-therapist , nor am I here to diagnose, treat, or prescribe anything. So now my story.
Living in South Central Texas, I am surrounded by the Hill Country, beautiful as it is, I am also surrounded by Oak trees, Cedar Trees, Ash. Around the months of late February and all of March, our Oak trees are in full bloom. Your car will be covered with yellow pollen from the oak tree. UGH!!!! We have a saying here in South Central Texas , ” It doesn’t snow here in South Texas, it pollens!”. Oh how true those words are.
My allergies are in full bloom. My face hurts, my nasal cavities are completely clogged. I can’t breathe at night. I wake up at all hours because my mouth is so dry. If I take an OC med , it completely dries me out so bad, that I feel even worse. ( Sound familiar) I can’t go to work because I work with the public I don’t want to be coughing in their faces. So I am desperate and want some relief so I can sleep and go back to work . So what do I do?
Essential Oils To The Rescue
I call my bestfriend who is a certified massage therapist , over-all wellness therapist. I tell her my dilemma . She tells me her co-worker, who is a Young Living Member and Distributor will make me an all-natural nasal spray using YL essential oils. So Here I go, I just want relief. I purchase this nasal spray for next to nothing. She tells that I can use it as many times as I need to because it’s all natural. She tells me the ingredients: pink Himalayan sea salt, thyme, rosemary. Let me tell you, as soon as I sprayed it in my nose, look out!!! It was Niagara Fall. It immediately gave me some relief. In a week of using it my sinus cavities were cleared.
Ever since then I need to know what these oils were all about. I wanted knowledge, I wanted my family to use them. So my journey begins. I take classes that my up-lines have to teach me more about making a healthy lifestyle change. I finally found what I was meant to do. I am completely in love with this company.
I want to share with you what I have learned and what new things I learned so it can help you and your family as you too make a chemical free lifestyle change. I’m thankful for this company for what it has done for us physically, emotionally , and financially. I have met some fantastic, amazing people along the way. I hope you love the journey as well. Blessings.
