Young living!

It has been about 2 weeks since I started my journey back to wellness. I have learned a lot in a short amount of time.

During winter break, my son had a stomach bug followed by random fevers. Using young living essential oils, I rubbed diluted 1 drop peppermint and 1 drop lemon to his spine. Within an hour he was fine. Then, I found myself sick with a cold and still have symptoms. I realized that I had missed my immunity roll on for 2 days taking care of my son and ended up sick. I created a roll-on blend of thieves, lemon and a carrier oil and apply it to my feet morning and night. Realistically, being a school teacher I am exposed to germs on a daily basis. The immunity booster blend is amazing, I can feel a difference when I forget to use it.

In the mean time, I have created a hair growth serum, face toner, and anti-aging serum – you know since I am 30 and I need to start using anti-aging stuff, correct? πŸ˜‰ Β It makes me feel so much better knowing that products I am using and having the ingredient list be a few items followed by pure essential oils. My skin is also super sensitive and I have very dry/acne prone skin in the winter and so far it has been working out nicely! No break outs! Β Now to work on fading my acne scars and pregnancy mask…

One thing has been a bit of challenge for me with essential oils is there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to combos and recipes. I am very type A and want to know exactly what you put in right down to the drop, however, not all oils work the same for everyone. For example, every single person I have been in contact with loves loves loves peace and calming. This oil is a hot ticket item and has been out of stock for quite some time making an appearance in December. Since everyone had to get this item, I figured why not? I will give it a try! I am not a great sleeper and am willing to try anything to feel better. Well, the first night I diffused it, it did NOT work for me. In fact, I think it gave me a headache and I did not like the smell. The second night, my husband fell asleep before my son putting him to bed. Why? Because I put the diffuser in there with peace and calming to get my son to relax. Bittersweet. Even though it did not work me, I am glad it helped someone in my house fall asleep in seconds. Essential oils is a work in progress and endless knowledge. It is exciting to research oils and find out what they are used for and how I can incorporate them into my life or my families. In the end its all about trying to get back to wellness.
