It feels like every time I get online, I hear something about the amazing uses of essential oils. I have wanted to try some for a long time, and finally got the chance when Laura from Laura's gluten free pantry sent me some to try.
I really had no idea where to start, and honestly was a little skeptical about all the hype I kept hearing. I finally decided to try the peppermint oil first, because I deal with sinus headaches quite a bit, and was shocked when my headache went away almost as soon as I tried the oil! I'll take drinking a cup of coffee with a splash of peppermint any day over popping tylenol!
Shortly after that experience I got well acquainted with the usefulness of essential oils when all 5 of my kids got sick last week. They all had coughs, runny noses, and fevers, so I gave them lots of baths with orange, lemon, and peppermint oil. When they couldn't sleep, I rubbed some lavender oil on their wrists, and when the coughing got particularly bad I rubbed some peppermint oil(mixed with coconut oil) on their feet, and watched in amazement as they got some much needed relief.
I think it's safe to say that I'm no longer skeptical about essential oils. :)
