My Journey to the Essential Oil life:
A few years ago, I had to have a hysterectomy. There was such an adjustment period with not having my body making any hormones any more and I felt overwhelmed and was full of anxiety and depression following surgery. What’s more, I had endometriosis and taking the estrogen that was recommended would make the endo worse. Again, I felt overwhelmed. That is when the Lord sent a friend of mine who introduced me to the Young Living Essential oils which are high quality, medicinal & therapeutic grade Essential Oils. I read so many testimonials on them and decided to give them a try. So, I bought the Everyday Oil kit that gave me 9 oils to play around with and use off the bat. The oils Peace & Calming, Valor and Lavender that were in the kit were the oils that brought me through that time of anxiety, helping to bring a calmness and peace to my body that I needed. I used them daily. Those oils along with some other oils have helped to bring a balance to my emotions and hormones on a even keel again. And I am happy to say that I have been off of my estrogen for a year now and only use Young Living essential oils to help balance my hormones with great success!
Not all essential oils are the same. There is a huge, crucial difference between synthetic fragrance oils and pure essential oils. In fact, I would never recommend using synthetic fragrance oils. However, even between what is labeled as “pure essential oils,” there are significant differences in quality and purity. Young Living oils are the highest quality medicinal grade essential oils and some are able to be taken internally and all can be used topically and inhaled. And best of all, they are healthy for you and will not pollute your body like over the counter meds can and make your sicker. They are way safer than anything a Dr. can prescribe and completely made by God and 100% pure. And they help with so much besides emotional issues. We use them in place of over the counter meds that we used to use…coughs, colds, flus, headaches, bodyaches…there is an oil for all of those things and more.
Young Living Essential Oils have been a real blessing for me and my family. All without the side effects of anything a Dr would prescribe you which often just makes you worse and becoming dependent on things that are unsafe for you.
Our family is trying to make the switch to a healthier lifestyle that includes whole foods free of pesticides and chemicals. Young Living Essential Oils is a perfect fit in that lifestyle in that Young Living Essential Oils are 100% pure and Young Living owns all their own farms and plants the seeds in the ground, grows their own plants, distills their own oils and bottles their own oils! So, from seed to seal, the quality is controlled every step of the way, so we can be assured there are no pesticides or adulterated oils in what we buy from Young Living!
I know that there are lots of other moms like me who are looking for a more natural way of housekeeping and caring for their families. Here, we will discuss important information regarding essential oils and how they can benefit our families. We’ll also have fun chatting and learning together more about the healing properties of essential oils and creative ways we can use them in our homes and families.
I believe Mama’s Essential Oil Cabinet will be a hub for discussing ways to use Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils in cooking, cleaning, scenting and cleaning the air in our homes, massage, good health, relaxation and beauty.
God gave us the ability to use oils in amazing ways as a blessing to us, our families and those around us. Join me on this journey as I share with you what I have learned and am learning about Essential Oils and how my family and I use them in our lives every day!
