Last year, I got super interested in essential oils and how they worked. Personally, I really hate taking medicine. I probably take 6 Advil a year (could be an overstatement) and that’s the extent of pills I pop when I feel any type of ailment in my body. I don’t take allergy medicines, when I get a headache I (mostly) wait it out and I really don’t get sick enough to ever warrant a doctor’s appointment. I have also struggled with intense anxiety over the past 5 years, but I refused to take anything for it.
When I decided to try my first essential oils, I went with lavender for its calming effects and lemon for its dietary effects. I would diffuse the lavender nightly at bedtime and throughout the night as a sleep aid and added lemon to my water in hopes of losing some weight or for its health benefits. I’ll be honest, I hated the lemon, but I should have known because I hate citrus. The lavender, on the other hand, was kind of a lifesaver. I had never slept better or had a deeper night’s sleep than when I diffused the lavender all night long.
This fall, I decided to order the Young Living starter kit so I could really dive into the world of essential oils. And now I am so glad I did, because I discovered the Stress Away oil which has 100% helped cure my anxiety. I also purchased Vetiver to mix with lavender for a deeper sleep at night. I cannot suggest these oils enough, especially if you want a natural cure or aid for stress-induced symptoms like lack of sleep and anxiety or panic attacks.
Although I’ve used a couple of the other oils that came in the kit in addition to a few other extra oils I’ve purchased, I can’t really tout the affects of these yet, so I don’t feel comfortable posting about them. I’m so excited to keep using more and see which ones really work. Hopefully I enjoy the rest of them more than the lemon. 😉
