I've always wanted to learn more about Essential Oils. This desire to learn more was born from the health of my first daughter Lilly. She is ten now, but has always been prone to bad infections, and plagued with skin issues; eczema, psorisis, molusscums--- you name the skin ailment, she's had it. I was getting really tired of pumping her body full of antibiotics, over the counter meds, and covering her skin with prescription cream and ointment. When I got pregnant with my second daughter I decided I needed to figure something else out because I did not want to start this vicious cycle with her body as well. Thankfully, I was invited to a Young Living Essential Oils Class. By the end of the class I was willing to give it a try by purchasing the Premium Starter Kit. It was the fastest (and cheapest!) way to get lots of oils and to see if they would be something that would benefit my family.
Obviously, they worked well for us! I started by working on my daughters skin, my husbands heartburn, and my lack of quality sleep. Since then I have also stomped out colds in their tracks, soothed the upset tummy's of both my daughters, rubbed away the growing pains of my oldest, and so much more! I have not reached for Motrin, Tums, Vicks, Icy Hot, Benydryl, or a number of other over the counter meds in months.
While there is a real place for doctors, vaccinations, and antibiotics in my family's life as essentials oils can not replace everything, it gives me comfort to know that I can take control of my family's health in most cases.
