Let me first say that I’m in no way against modern medicine. :) I would certainly take my children to the doctor if they needed to go. And, I encourage you to do your own research when using any type of remedy for anything. I would also encourage you to read my last post (CLICK HERE) so you can learn about Young Living oils, why I trust their name, and why it’s important that you read labels on store bought so-called “essential” oils.
Now, with all that being said…..here is the good stuff and what all you can use it for! Below is a few of my own experiences. I plan to add to this blog post as I use them more, experience their benefits more, and have built more of our testimony.
I’ve used this to conquer the flu. My son had it first. Took him to doctor and he tested positive for the flu. Right away, I started using Thieves on him, me, and everyone else in the house….knowing that we had been exposed to it. The following morning, my daughter woke up with fever, but her flu only last about 12 hours! I believe it’s because I started using Thieves on her before she showed signs on the flu. My son’s flu lasted about 48 hours. I got it a few days later and mine lasted about 24 hours.
I use this in my water every morning. It helps with bloating, energy, and I feel like it helps with sugar/sweet cravings.
PEACE & CALMING:
Every once in a while, my children will stay up really late and get over tired…resulting in a meltdown. I rub some Peace & Calming on their feet and they are out in less than 5 minutes. I also have used this for myself for stress, tension, moodiness, anxiety.
I use this on my face every morning and night. I also mix it with other oils and coconut oil for my moisturizer. (that recipe coming soon!)
This was the fist oil I ever used. For depression and anxiety. It works great, without the harmful side effects and withdraws from meds.
I use this on my face for redness. I also put this behind my son’s ears for his allergies.
I use this on my face. It gets rid of blemishes and I could go on and on about the things you can use this one for. Maybe I need to do a whole blog post on each one! Ha!
Headaches. Gone in less than 5 minutes. True story.
I’ve used this for indigestion, the kids’ fevers, congestion.
There are several other oils that I’ve used that aren’t on this list that I will share soon too! Shoot me an email at [email protected] if you’d like me to add you to the Lemon Drop Lounge – a private Facebook group for oilers where you can find all kind of good info and read testimonies. :)
