I have struggled with sinus/allergies and headaches my whole life. They both run in our family. I do not like to take medicine. It is not pleasant, it has side effects and it is not good for you. It temporarily eases the issue, but It does its damage as well. I try to drink tons of water and sleep when I get sick but that is not always an easy task when you have a job and three kids.
I had heard of Essential Oils on Pinterest and such but hadn’t given it a whole lot of thought. Until this Summer when I had a headache at VBS and a friend told me to try some of her Young Living Peppermint Oil.
Within 30 minutes my headache was GONE! This was huge for me. I have taken Advil, Tylenol of all sort, Migraine medicine……and none of it has ever worked this fast. Not only did my headache go away, it didn’t come back. This alone was life changing enough that I had to do my research and buy my own oils. Young Living has it’s own farms and is involved in the quality from seed to seal.
I found that buying the Young Living Starter kit
was the best deal for me to try different oils, get a diffuser
and I would be able to purchase all my oils at wholesale price. When they came in I immediately put them to work. My medicine cabinet changed a lot.
I had read testimonies of people using them for their allergies and wanted to try it on myself.
I have not had any sinus/allergy problems since using them. When I wake up a little stuffy I increase my oils for the day.
I have recently switched to a Thieves Cleaner by Young Living
in place of all household cleaners. It is effective, smells good and is very healthy for my family. I am slowly trying to switch over to all natural personal products.
