Two years ago, I began my journey using essential oils. My good friend wanted me to go to an oil class and I was the person in the corner, rolling their eyes, being a total skeptic. The presenters were very informative and had me intrigued. I didn’t buy any, but once the holiday sales started to roll in and there was a good incentive to buy, I made the leap and bought my Young Living Premium Starter Kit.
At first, I didn’t know what I was doing. How do you use these things? Luckily, I turned to Pinterest and got tons of amazing tips, tricks, and inspiration. My first “miracle moment” with essential oils happened when I heard that oregano oil could remove skin tags and moles. I had a skin tag on my neck (yuck, I know) for the past ten years or so, and never got around to getting it removed. Not that it really mattered, it never bothered me. That is, until my 7 month old daughter started noticing it. Anyone who has ever fed a baby knows that they can be nosy. They pull on your shirt, grab your hair, necklaces, mouth, and pick at anything on your skin. My daughter would try to get the skin tag all the time and it was terrible! So, I started putting a drop of oregano oil on a q-tip and applied it every night directly to the tag. After two weeks, it fell off! There was no scar, no doctor visit to burn it off (so gross), no freezing it away, just perfectly smooth skin. I was amazed! I was a skeptic no more.
Since then, I’ve used my oils in so many ways. Phoebe’s first ear infection and cough left me feeling helpless and so sad that she was in so much pain. Not being able to give your child relief from pain is the worst. I used my oils to help give her the relief she needed and they worked. I dodged the stomach flu by applying Thieves directly to my throat and bottoms of my feet, calmed my anxiety with Stress Away, brought the smell of Christmas into my home by diffusing Thieves with Orange, made the most delicious Peppermint Mocha cupcakes with Peppermint oil, soothed rashes with lavender, got the gunk from stickers off my brand new quartz counters (thanks Phoebe!) with Lemon….I could go on and on but I’m sure you get the idea.
Sharing essential oils is so much fun for me. Helping friends and family live a healthier lifestyle supported by essential oils makes me happy and feel accomplished.
