I wrote this post on my Facebook page several days ago. I was having a new allergic reaction, and armed with my new essential oils, I thought immediately of their healing power and started to brainstorm my options.
A few minutes ago, I was having a slight allergic reaction to some fresh watermelon. I occasionally react to fresh fruit like pineapple and kiwi when I have higher levels of stress in my life.
With the help of my best friend Shannon, I was able to pinpoint that my body was craving certain essential oils. At first I used Stress Away rolled on to my temples, behind my ears, and the inside of my wrists. Then I used Lavender on my lip, where I was feeling puffy and itchy. Then I smelled Peace and Calming and got a very strong reaction and decided to listen.
So I put Peace and Calming into my diffuser, and also put 5 drops in a small amount of water and took it. Down the hatch! About 5 minutes later, the itching and puffiness are subsiding, and I feel a lot better.
I know it’s not rigorous science. But I also know that essential oils have measurable effects. And I also know that our bodies are smart. We crave for a reason. And if we listen to our bodies, those inner voices become stronger. I’m SO glad I had these oils on hand as part of my “medicine cabinet”.
