Essential Oils

9/11/2014


Do you guys use essential oils? I read this post the other day, and have since been intrigued. I'm currently also sick (for what seems like the 99th time this year), and I hear they can be especially beneficial at combating cold and flu symptoms. Eucalyptus Oil, I'm looking at you. I also seem to be continuously battling digestive issues (gastritis is lame) and have heard great things about peppermint oil. So what do you think? Have you guys used essential oils?

P.S. Love the tip in Joanna's post about putting a dab of it in your vacuum cleaner. Now if I ever vacuumed.... ;)

I use them in my bath and just started using them with a diffuser in my shower. It can be really invigorating or relaxing depending on what you choose.

I've been using oils for almost a year now- mostly the flu/cold combating one, also one for headaches and pms. Not sure how much they help, but I have friends that SWEAR by them (these are also friends that sell them, so there's that). You can smell my oils this weekend if you want! Ha!

I've been using them for the past couple months. I have a couple blends that I love. One I use on my face for breakouts that has really helped my sensitive skin and one that I have used on Xander for when he has a chest cold or allergies. I also have essential oil based cleaning products that I really like. You should try them and see what you think!

I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach and use Essential Oils alot with my clients. Right now I am helping a lot of people who have children or grandchildren with ADD/ADHD & Autism. I have a facebook page just for people wanting to ask questions on how to use oils and what oils to use for an ailment, there is also a free ebook you can download on there if you like. Here is the link if you would like to join and get educated https://www.facebook.com/groups/565961470114064/
