I am a 32-year-old mother of 4 very active boys. In 2001 I was involved in a car accident that injured my spinal cord and left me paralyzed from the waist down. When I had my accident, one of my biggest concerns was whether or not I would still be able to have children. Being a mom has always been something that was very important and special to me.
The fact that I have been blessed with four amazing sons is more than I could have ever asked for. As a paraplegic, I am prone to a weaker immune system as well as other health complications that are common with my injury. In the fall of 2014, I was searching for an all-natural way to help keep my family healthy and give me the energy and endurance to keep up with my growing family. At that time I was pregnant with my youngest son, and my other boys were 10, 8, and 4. I was looking for a natural way to take care of my family and provide a lifestyle of wellness for all of us and create a chemical free home.
That is when my search led me to essential oils. We have used essential oils for pretty much everything under the sun, and we have had amazing results. I keep my family healthy and happy with them, and we have yet to have a doctor’s visit for our children, outside of well visits. Our goal is always to stay healthy, and I’m happy to say that, with the help of healthy foods and supplements, we have been able to do that.
Some of the oils that I use on a daily basis are peppermint, lemon, ginger, cedarwood, wintergreen, lavender, Thieves which is a blend of a few oils including cinnamon and clove that is great for boosting the immune system. A few of the many things that I use them for are:
- to help me wake up in the morning and stay focused throughout the day,
- digestive support,
- to help balance my mood and
- help me when I am feeling overwhelmed,
- to help maintain a healthy circulatory and muscular system,
- help my entire family sleep sounder and
- overall improve our immune systems.
What are essential oils and how do I use them?
Essential oils are volatile liquids and aromatic compounds that are distilled or pressed from plants, herbs, trees, flowers, roots, and seeds. As the blood in the body, the essential oil of a plant is used to seal the cut, protect the wound, provide nutrients and oxygen for cell regeneration and guard against harmful microorganisms. Essential oils are considered mankind’s first medicine and have been used around the world for centuries!
There are three common ways to use essential oils, topically, aromatically and internally. To apply oils topically, the can be applied directly on to the desired area. These can be applied with a warm or cold compress, body massage, or in bathe water. Essential oils can also be used aromatically by using an ultrasonic diffuser that emits a cool mist in the air or by placing a few drops in the palm of your hands and cupping your hands over your mouth and nose to inhale the essential oil. The third way to use essential oils is internally. Many oils are safe to take internally by either adding them to your drinking water, your morning smoothie or in empty veggie capsules.
When doing my research on essential oils, I discovered that there are many different companies that sold essential oils and many different qualities of oils. In my research, there was one company that stood apart for their commitment to quality and purity. That company is Young Living Essential Oils, they are the world leader in essential oils and have been in business for over 20 years. They maintain strict standards and won’t compromise the quality of the oil to make money. Because of the commitment to quality that Young Living has promised to their customers is why I have chosen them with my family’s health and well-being.
Essential oils have also helped me create a chemical free home for my family.
We have replaced many chemical laden products in our home like cleaning supplies, toothpaste, deodorant, and air fresheners with healthy alternatives and I know my family is much better off because of it. My family has had such great success with these essential oils that I have become so passionate about sharing my knowledge with others so that they to can live a life of wellness!!
