Practice Safe Use
Something that is important to me is practicing safe use. I love the “Using EOs Safely” Facebook group. Let me know if you are interested and I can send you a request. A common question is: are oils safe for kids? Check it out and make your own judgement call. I do diffuse and use topically keeping in mind that oils be extremely diluted! We use coconut oil or almond oil as a carrier oil! You can even pre-dilute the oils and use these mason jars to store it in. Always store your oils in glass!
How it all started, and how it is changing our lives
I was skeptical of the whole oils thing for the longest time. Our mom used to use tea tree for the pups on their paws and other doggy injuries, and she always used lavender, for everything. Something about lavender was calming to me. So that is where it all started. One measly little 10 dollar bottle of lavender (off brand). Then after that, peppermint for headaches. If you’ve ever had a migraine you know the pain they cause. The smell of peppermint alone helped my headaches (with the addition of Excedrin). Then a friend shared her diffuser with me and that is what did me in. I started diffusing oils in our home and the effects were crazy (in a good way). Calming, energizing, helping with stuffy noses and sicknesses, and even smells that would make us feel just happy in general. It is true, just a smell can make a person happy! Think about it… what do you think of when you smell fresh popcorn? Or the smell of a good glass of red wine, it makes you happy, right?! Why not lavender, citrus, or other minty smells? They work wonders.
I do it for the health benefits, not for the cash
Then the decision was made with my husbands approval (because he is extremely sensitive to smells, all kinds of smells). I jumped on the Young Living bandwagon, and I have loved every minute of it. I share muscle rubs and lotions at work, roller bottles in my purse and at my desk to help reduce stress and headaches at work. SHARING IS CARING! I utilize oils enough where the rewards program with Young Living, and sharing with others that sign up, my oils pay for themselves AND maybe even a little extra cash on the side comes in. The cash is NOT why I do this! Our family saves money by making our own, and our bodies will thank us in the long run for eliminating the use of toxic chemicals in our home.
