That’s what I have asked myself so many times since I opened my gift of essential oils for Christmas. I was never more excited to get anything then these. I have struggled for so long with headaches and very bad migraines, that put me in bed for most of the day. It seemed like I was getting one, two to three times a week and it was driving me insane.
I had to do something, so I decided to start reading up on the oils to see if anything could help me out. When I came across an article about the effects of these essential oils I told my hubby that I wanted some for Christmas and yes he came through with flying colors.
The set that I got consisted of Lavender, Lemon Grass, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Peppermint and Orange. When I read that rubbing peppermint across the forehead I was like, there is no way that will work. Boy was I surprised when it actually did, I took a cotton swap, added about 5 drops and swiped across my head and temples, it took about 15-20 minutes for the headache to disappear. I was totally amazed. I finally found something that would help me out, I was ecstatic!!!
A couple days ago I felt myself coming down with a cold, I googled what oils could help and came up with Tea Tree and Eucalyptus. Once again I added about 5 drops each to a cotton swap, rubbed across my forehead and took a bath with these oils added to my bath water. It totally helped me out with the congestion and stuffiness. I’m sold on these oils and now don’t go a day without using the peppermint oil, even when I don’t have a headache I use just to prevent one. I even made a few cotton swabs for a co-worker and gave them to her, she loves them as much as I do.
I can not wait to find out what more I can do with these oils!!!
Thank you Essential Oils for helping me so far!
If anyone has anything else they would like to share with me on other uses of these oils, please feel free. The more use I get out of them the better!
Til next time,
