As promised the English version of my path to Essential Oils.
How did I come in contact with these oils?
On my timeline in facebook, I saw regularly posts of several American friends of mine that had to do with Young Living oils. At first I did not pay much attention to them, but In February we stopped Anthony his medication(concerta) for his ADHD, and since then I was looking for something that was 100% natural and could support his overstimulation and concentration problems. One American friend of mine, Becca Suthon also has a child with ADHD, and they also used the oils I knew because of her facebook posts. I have I sent her a message if there was an oil for ADHD/Autism and she told me there were quite a few actually.
It took a while before I went and ordered a kit, I wanted to read into it more as a kit will cost quite a lot of money(150 dollars without tax and shippingcosts!), and I wondered if I would be buying a cat in the hat or not? The oil that I needed (Vetiver) by the way was not in the kit, that one I had to buy extra next to the kit. So I started surfing on the internet, what is it for and does it really work? Well my findings were that you have almost an oil for every problem or condition and the success stories I read were a LOT. That the oil is 100% natural and that the company has it’s own farms all around the world and therefore could controle the quality from seed to seal was for me very important to me and ultimately the deciding factor to go and try it.
So I ordered the kit that came a week later. I unpacked everything and looked at it, but decided to take some time that evening to sit down and read everything and look up online what each oil could do and how to use them. Then Jadenn came down and was almost crying from the muscular pain he had in his chest, he could not get his arms up. “Oh, Mommy has somthing that could help!” and I went to look up what oil would work best for this kind of problem. I took the oil PanAway and put two drops (you read it right, but two drops), one on each finger, and rubbed it on his chest. I washed my hands and Jadenn walked up the stairs. I saw him when I walked into my office and he said it's already something better and he moved his arms around. I thought: “right” ... "I'll call you in 5 minutes". After 5 minutes I actually called him and I asked how it felt. His answer was: "It's all gone." Okaaaaay!!! I thought “where is that bottle?” I had been having serious lower backproblems for a few weeks now. I put some drops of the PanAway oil on it, washed my hands, sat back down at my desk, started typing again and stopped ....”No this can’t be!” shook back and forth on my chair .... stood up ... moved my hips back and forth. HUH ... !? My back pain was gone within 2 minutes !!! I was seriously in shock!
Since then we have been using the oils daily and I can truely say they changed my family’s lives(yes even my super sceptical husband!). Here are a few of the things that some of the oils from the kit helped us with.
PanAway oil: My backpain(I went through my back not long after using the oil for the first time, I could not even stand up I was in so much pain. I put Panaway on it right away and I could stand up within 2 minutes, but it still felt very weak. So I googled what else I could use from my kit for this. I Layered the oil Valor, PanAway and Peppermint with each other and within 2/4 minutes it felt as I never went through my back, all the pain was gone and it didn’t get back either!
Sore knees(Ray) and muscle pain
Peppermint oil: Headaches and sinus infection
Thieves olie: Colds and sore throat
Lavender Olie: Sunburns, Jadenn’s sleep oil, Itchy-ness from bugbites
Stress Away olie: Seriously THE must have oil for mommies! The name says it all!
Valor olie: Snoring!, Bumps and bruises, for my back pain, Anxiety
Peace and Calming: Sleep! I can sleep again!
Lemon: A few drops of lemon in water for heartburn.
Frankinsence: Made a face creme with this oil in it, it is for reducing wrinkels, have to use it longer to see results.
Purification: On pimples! They are gone within a day! Also for bugbites. Stinky shoes, a few drops and they do not make my DH drop dead when I take them off.
Vetiver: The oil where it actually was all about. Better concentration and better coping with overstimulation. Every day I placed a drop of oil in the back of Anthony, Jadenn and my own neck. After a week I received an email from Anthony his mentor about his behavior that week. The mentor went by all his teachers to ask about his behavior that week and he said that there was nothing bad to say about his behavior that entire week ...... I nearly fell off my chair...unique I can tell you!
So this is in short where we used the oils from the kit for in the past few months. We now turn to oils instead of the regular medicines that were in our cabinet.
I also have bought new oils not from the kit but I will share my experiences with those another time :)
If you want to have more information about these oils or have any question which oil would work best for your condition/problem, let me know by sending me a private message on facebook or an email to email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Someone said on facebook when I posted something about the oils, "it seems like a QVC advertising hahaha" ..... and YES! it does feel like this a bit, doesn’t it :) but I garantee you that this actually does work!
You must know by now that I get very enthusiastic when it comes to something that works and I want to allow people to benefit from it just like I did, so yes I am preaching the gospel here :).
To be continued!
