So I have discovered something super fascinating! Essential Oils. Perhaps I’m late to the game but I just found out about them.
I was super skeptical at first thinking it’s probably just a placebo effect. What can ONE drop of oil truly do even if it is pure and natural? The class I went to though (before I tried it) mentioned how it was in the Bible and how God placed oils on this earth for us and the provided a few different verses where oils were brought up and to use them with the power of God. I was still really skeptical and though perhaps they were just using religion as a form to sell. But the verses provided still made me think more about it. He did put these things on the Earth for us, that is what they used before medicine was natural herbs, plants, etc. And pharmaceuticals do have an agenda to make money and all medications have side effects. Could an oil really do something though?
I decided to host another party with some close friends. I received a few samples beforehand to try. One to help with breathing due to allergies or cold, another for appetite suppression and a third for help with digestion. My daughter is 5yrs old. Obviously the placebo effect would not work on a 5 year old she has no idea what I even put on her or for what purpose, but before bed I put a drop in my palms and rubbed them on the bottom of her foot. Every night she gets a stuffy nose due to allergies (allergic to dust, just my luck). So I figured let’s try it. I took the appetite suppression and my boyfriend who has acid reflux used the digestion one.
I was so pleased to know that it worked. But could it really? My daughter didn’t wake up with a stuffy nose and when I checked on her that night she was breathing clearly. Coincidence? Well, I tried it two more nights and same effect. I decided to not use and it and sure enough stuff nose. That alone was enough for me to want to buy that product.
The appetite suppression (control) one I used, didn’t make me really crave less persay but I would say it made me go to bathroom with more regularity and not to be gross but with more content which is super rare for me. I was actually pleased. I feel a lot of my weight issues are build up because of the fact that I’m not excreting as much as what I believe to be normal but this has helped with it.
The one my boyfriend used he said did help ease his stomach. However he’s still a skeptic and hasn’t used it often but he was intrigued as to why.
Once my party came along and I received more information as did my friends who also ordered a bottle of whatever oil they wanted, I decided to order a kit (as every oil I was interested in was basically in the kit). I didn’t want to sell and I’m not sure how I feel about it now. If I do just for friends who want the product not so much to recruit, etc.
But as I’m waiting for my kit which arrives tomorrow, I’ve been going pinterest crazy with researching other uses, combinations, etc. I’m eager to try a bug repellant combo for my home and one for skin for my arms. My boyfriend is also eager to try a combination for his barbering.
I’ll let you know how my experiences go with essential oils though. I’m really excited!
