It's been a while since I've talked about my oils, so I just wanted to give you all a little update.
Bottom line: I love 'em.
It seems like I'm still learning more and more, but as I find what works for me and my family, I just keep loving them more.
Here are a few of my recent testimonials/favorite uses:
Lemon is very inexpensive and so versatile. Recently, I used just a drop or two to get marker off a wall. I honestly thought I was going to have to repaint the wall, but I tried the lemon oil on a whim and it was gone in an instant!
Balance is a blend by doterra. Friends, it has made SUCH a difference in my emotions, bringing me back to center and helping me keep calm in stressful situations. I cannot speak highly enough about this oil--it is my absolute favorite!
Eucalyptus has been incredibly effective for Cooper's most recent bought of congestion/cough. Literally any time I rub this on his chest (always diluted with fractionated coconut oil) he doesn't cough again. And after several days of applying it to his chest twice a day, his congestion is gone. :)
Lavender. So, so many uses for lavender. The last couple of mornings, I've woke up a little snotty/sneezy from seasonal allergies. I'll rub a drop on the sides of my nose/sinuses, and be totally fine the rest of the day!
We also constantly use lavender for any boo-boos/cuts/scrapes. It soothes and helps it heal quicker!
Peppermint & Frankincense. A few days ago I woke up with a terrible headache. I was super bummed because we were going to see friends that day and I reeeealy didn't want to battle a headache while catching up with them. A lot of people rub diluted peppermint on their temples and back of the neck to relieve headaches, but that just wasn't cutting it for me. Layering a drop of frankincense on top of the peppermint, however, did just the trick.
One more I want to highlight (even though I don't have a picture, haha) is Melaleuca. This is more commonly known as tea tree oil. The other day, I had shooting pain in my toe (ingrown toenail--so gross, I know. Sorry.). At first, I applied lavender, which didn't really do much. After remembering a friend's recent testimony about a different issue, I tried melaleuca, hoping that it's anti-inflammatory properties would at least take the swelling down and reduce the pain. No joke--almost instantly, the pain was gone. And after only a few applications, I am completely pain free. Amazing!!
