Feel better … because there's no better feeling.
When I was a kid, I remember having a few plantar warts on the bottom of my foot. My good Mom did what good Moms do and took me to the dermatologist who proceeded to freeze them off of my foot. I remember it being painful, but I also remember being thankful that they were finally gone.
So, when my daughter started having a few little plantar warts showing up on her perfect little fingers, I followed the same good Mom routine. I took her to the dermatologist who proceeded to try to freeze them off. I’ll be the first to admit that the girl child does not have the highest of pain thresholds and there was much crying and gnashing of teeth, so to speak.
Three times we did this. They are still there.
This good Momma went in search of a kinder and gentler way to get rid of these.. and in my search, thanks to some amazing people in my world, I was led to discover … Essential Oils.
I just have to ask: Am I the last one to know about essential oils? Where have these been all of my life?
Now, just a month or so later, I’m a fan. And as a Young Living independent distributor, I find myself often saying: “There’s an oil for that.
To help get rid of the warts, the girl child is now applying Melaleuca on her fingers twice a day and there is zero crying about this. Plus it smells great and seems to be working.
The same child has also been a sleep fighter since the day we brought her home from the hospital, so a little concoction called, “Peace and Calming” has been a champ for helping her relax and unwind at the end of an overtiring day. She even slept until 8:45 a.m. one morning…and my people are usually up by 7 a.m. each day. (Peace and Calming includes tangerine, ylang ylang, blue tansy, orange and patchouli.)
A good friend was feeling anxious before a medical procedure and a little Lavender did the trick of calming us both down. After the procedure, the nurse came in and said, “You both smell so good!”
Instead of reaching for the tylenol bottle, I’m applying a little peppermint oil to my forehead and the pain is gone in minutes. I also put a couple of drops of peppermint oil in some plain seltzer water for a little afternoon, wake me up, drink at my desk. Refreshing and energizing!
I walked into my office last week to discover that someone had left the coffee pots on all night long, leaving a nauseating burnt, stale, bean smell throughout the entire space. I used a little Purification and within an hour, the office smelled fresh and clean again. The lemongrass, rosemary, melaleuca, myrtle and citronella did the trick. (Now, to just make sure my colleagues don’t burn down the place by leaving the pots on all night…not sure there is actually an oil for that! )
There are so many ways to use essential oils and I’m only getting started!
