Finding Answers for Myself
It all began in a hay field one spring day. I've always had problems with hay and pollen. My friend, Alisse said, "I have an essential oil that may support healthy respiration. Do you want to try it?"
"Weird," I thought, but I was willing to try it. I rubbed a couple of drops of oil over my nose and it really helped me maintain clear breathing and minimize the effects of seasonal threats. We stood around the kitchen laughing about it.
I didn't know those drops of oil would literally change the course of how we take care of our health.
This experience opened our family to the possibility of using essential oils for many different wellness goals and concerns. We now use essential oils to take care of our family and have options right in our home that we try first.
I'm not suggesting essential oils are a magic bullet. What I've found is that essential oils are very effective, safe and inexpensive, since I usually use 1-3 drops per dose. But, most of all, it's given me power, choices and freedom. I want to be clear that I am not anti-western medicine or doctors. I just prefer to use traditional medicine, going to a doctor, getting a prescription or having surgery as infrequently as possibly. I prefer prevention and self-care, along with healthy choices & habits.
