It is amazing how difficult it is to do even simple things when your head hurts. Even speaking kindly takes super human effort! But the day to day tasks are the hardest.
I was feeling this way today. I had a headache that continued to grow in intensity with waves of nausea hitting me off and on. I just wanted a dark room with peace and quiet. Of course, that’s a lot to ask in a busy household!
In addition, I had a little girl lying in my room with a stomach virus, and who needed help throwing up every so often (she had her own aching head). So, I couldn’t completely relax. Still, with a little help from family members, I was at least going to get a nap while she slept. I even broke down and took a Motrin before closing my eyes, which I rarely do.
An hour and a half later my head was worse. The Motrin wasn’t working. Then, I remembered my essential oils! I laid there for a few minutes wishing my oil bag would float to me from across the room. Irritated, I got up and dug out my oils. I looked at my sweet little darling who had finally fallen asleep. I rubbed some of Young Living’s “Deep Relief” blend on the back of her neck, hoping it would relieve her headache (she had thrown up the Children’s Tylenol I had reluctantly given her). “I love you, Mommy,” she whispered in her sleep.
I rubbed some oils on the back of my neck as well and laid back down. After a couple of minutes, I sat up to get a drink of water and realized my headache was gone! I whispered to my daughter, “How is your head, Honey?” She told me her head was better and asked for a sip of her tea. I love essential oils! Check out some of my favorites HERE.
Deep Relief Essential Oil Roll On is a proprietary blend of oils specially formulated to relieve muscle soreness and tension. Peppermint, Wintergreen, Copal, and Palo Santo essential oils as well as others play an integral part of healing in this blend. Deep Relief is offered in the portable convenience of a roll on application. Click here to read the PDF: DEEP RELIEF
Though I just began using Young Living’s oils, I began using therapeutic grade essential oils several years ago and I love them for more than health reasons. I have always been scent oriented, and having things smell fresh, clean, and pleasantly fragrant helps me to have a more peaceful attitude. I love using oils to clean my house, scent my home, heal my family, and create memories. I can’t tolerate chemical air fresheners anymore – and why should I?
What I like best about Young Living oils is their amazing blends. Since I’ve used other good quality essential oils before, I was already familiar with the wonderful aromas and excellent benefits of oils such as lavender, tea tree, lemon, peppermint, geranium, rose, ylang ylang, and sandalwood. But, Young Living not only offers high quality single oils, their amazing tried and true blends can’t be beat!
One of my favorite blends is Thieves.® I wish I had been more faithful with diffusing it in our home. Maybe my little one wouldn’t be sick right now! Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in 15th century France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. Amazingly, they handled contaminated plague victims’ bodies regularly without contracting the disease.
This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities and it is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. Not to mention the fact that it fills the house with the most scrumptious scent ever! Learn more HERE. Choose from the essential oil blend or the various health and cleaning products made from it: toothpaste, household cleaner, hand sanitizer, mouthwash, foam hand soap, dental floss, and much more!
