Essential Oils a Fad? Or necessity?

It seems that essential oils are the latest fad right?

Everywhere you turn someone is pushing their personal business.

I’ve taken a break from pretty much everything in my life.  I’ve had life burnout so bad.

In my time away from social media, writing, social gatherings I’ve been testing out Essential Oils and really trying to see are they truly worth the money or is this another scheme to get me to spend money.

I personally use the brands Young Living and Doterra.

Over the past 6 months I’ve come to the realization some of them do truly work, and some of the products were in fact a waste of money.

It all depends on personal preference, what exactly you are hoping to gain from using Essential Oils in your life.

I have found that there are oils that help treat colds, viruses, minor aches and pains.  Saving me on a trip to the Doctor’s office.  Sometimes in conjunction with Western medicine as well.

I’ve found I enjoy mixing and matching different essential oils to find scents that are pleasing to me.

I don’t always notice a difference, but sometimes the sweet aroma is enough to kick my bad mood.

I’ve been ingesting Copaiba regularly and often to help fight off my immune disorder.  This for sure is not a cure, but it has most definitely helped my immune system.

I love using Myrhh and Frankincense in my moisturizer to combat acne and wrinkles.

Instead of rushing to the Doctor for an antibiotic I have found that ingesting Oregano pills for 5 days will kick a sinus infection just as quickly without the side effects of an antibiotics.

Cooking with essential oils has become an enjoyable past time of mine as well.  A drop of Lemon Essential Oil will work just as nicely as a fresh lemon replacement.

So without begging and pleading for you to give Essential Oils a try I’m softly suggesting maybe you look into it.

Maybe it’s time our medicine cabinets reverted back to the olden days.  Ditch the cough suppressants for an Essential Oil instead.  Substitute a household cleaner for an all natural cleaner using Essential Oils.

There are so many different ways to use and enjoy Essential Oils.  It isn’t necessarily some scheme to take all your money.  As much as I love bleach and some modern medicine I find that I too really enjoy my natural medicine cabinet for everyday ailments.

You may be wondering why Young Living, and to be honest I don’t have an answer other than I have tried multiple brands of Essential Oils and have found I love Young Living the most.  It’s personal preference, and it happens to be the brand that I choose.

Full Disclosure:  I am not a Doctor, or an expert in Essential Oils.  I’m a mama, pretty basic, I do my research before using each and every essential oil and choose them for me and my family based on my own research and I strongly suggest you do the same.
