My Story With Essential Oils

Last February I went to my first DoTERRA essential oils class at Mary Crimmins’ house. The topic of this specific class was “Essential Oils for Babies & Children.” At the time, my son was 10 months old, and I’m always looking for more natural ways to keep our family healthy. Most of you know that I started my journey of natural health 3.5 years ago when I got really sick with autoimmune type symptoms and doctor after doctor couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me, but I was able to heal myself through natural methods and God-given foods. (My story here.)  Since then, I’m extremely passionate about natural healthcare; treating the root cause of problems, not merely treating the symptoms. I’ve also been a lot more careful not to just take medicine every time I have an ailment; rather I seek to find out what could be causing the pain, and I look for ways to boost my immune system. At the essential oils class, I learned that anytime my baby experienced teething, sleep problems, colds/flu, gas, constipation, fever, skin problems, or any issue, that there was an essential oil I could use on him. For someone who HATED giving my little one tylenol, this was the best news ever for me. I loved learning that my family had the option of turning to something natural anytime we were sick; not only sick, but anytime we needed more energy, struggled with insomnia, needed more focus, or needed help with anxiety.

Growing up, my mom would always tell me to smell lavender before bed to help me sleep. She would also send me to school on test days with peppermint for focus and concentration. I would also catch my mom putting tea tree oil on different parts of her body. Back then, I thought she was so weird for this but she was obviously onto something-smart woman! I guess it took me having my own family and seeing my own child sick to realize that I wanted to have something to turn to in times of need.

During the class I put a drop of Elevation (The Joyful Blend) in my hands and inhaled the amazing aroma of this oil. I couldn’t believe how good I felt within minutes. I came home from the class in the best mood and so energized after experiencing the benefits from Elevation. Since I was a little girl, I have unfortunately struggled with anxiety and worried way too much. I never got on drugs for this, but just did my best to manage it with prayer, reading scripture, exercise, and then by changing my diet a few years ago. (How your gut health affects your mental health will be discussed in a future post). Thankfully, through all the changes I made, it was gone….until I had Owen. My health was thrown off after delivering a baby-between all the medicine they gave me which damages your gut health, lack of sleep which hurts your immune system, and overall stress of having a newborn, my anxiety came back probably the worst it had ever been. For about a month, I wouldn’t even drive my car with Owen in the backseat for fear that I would get in a wreck and hurt him. At night, I couldn’t sleep because I was so fearful of someone breaking into our home. Looking back, I’m shocked that I even went through that as it seems so silly now, but obviously something was off in my body.  Between supplementing with specific nutrients I was missing and using Balance, Serenity, and Elevation, I became a new woman. These 3 oils have truly changed my life. Anytime I’m anxious or have a lot going on, I use these essential oils and the anxiety/heart pounding disappears. I feel so much more motivated and less fearful in life.

DoTERRA essential oils have been such a blessing to my family. I’m so thankful for these God-given oils that have powerful healing properties and that have been around for ages. Essential oils are mentioned over 1000 times in the Bible. I think He had something better in mind for us than the current state of our nation’s health problems.
