Up until now, I liked my essential oils. I dabbled in them a few years back when I was asked to do a review. From that experience I mostly got how they helped with my allergies.
I thought about trying more here and there, I’m more about self healing than doctors and medicine and all that jazz. Blame it on my mom. She was never one to rush us to the doctor when I was sick.
Fast forward to this summer. My friend, Arcena, started to dabble in doTERRA herself and invited me to this little essential oils workshop. There was a really good deal going on that month and by the time the night was over I had pretty much ordered one of everything.
Since then I’ve used my oils in the diffuser I got, trying different blends here and there. But it wasn’t until Monday that I became a tried and true believer.
Sunday I had taken the kids to Universal because Mike had to work. We got drizzled on a little bit but mostly enjoyed the cooler (for Florida, it was cooler!) weather and lack of touristy crowds.
That night we had dinner with Mike’s parents and by the end of the evening I was getting a scratchy feeling in my throat. I went to bed early and woke up around 2 am with with a sinus headache and even worse sore throat. I decided to pull up a recipe for the flu bomb (something Arcena and I had just been talking about a few nights before). Along with that I looked up something for a sinus headache, too.
I rubbed a little Frankinscense, Peppermint and Lavender on my forehead and then gargled (and swallowed) On Guard, Melaleuca and Oregano and went back to bed. I woke up the next morning still feeling under the weather and repeated the same thing again before taking the kids to school.
Lucky for me, Monday’s are work from home days, so I curled up on the couch with some tea & honey and my laptop and worked/rested all morning. At lunch I mixed the rest of my flu bomb blend in with my soup (when you gargle with it, it can be a little spicy in your mouth and I wasn’t able to take it all that morning). I took one more dose around dinner time (this time I put it in a capsule and swallowed it like a pill) and that was it.
I had no more sore throat or sinus headache. Not even 24 hours after my symptoms started were they gone. It was really quite amazing.
There’s so much more I could be doing on a daily basis with my essential oils, I just need to take the time to learn it all. But for now, the flu bomb has done it for me, the money I spent in my oils is well worth it knowing I have this in my pocket come time I’m not feeling good again.
