Today’s post is from guest Mia Sebben. She has a wonderful story about what helped her whole family feel better!
I was skeptical at first about using essential oils in my life to help me feel better. I had heard about essential oils for as long as I could remember, but it wasn’t until my dad was diagnosed with cancer that it started to mean something to me. My dad was in and out of the hospital, surgery after surgery, and continually on medications. At one point I thought, the pharmaceutical industry is just out of control right now. Yes, there have been some medications that have truly helped my dad, although I wonder how many he absolutely needs. I wanted to be able to help him in a more natural way, so I decided to try essential oils for myself. Having had severe head tension most of my life, I wanted to find something to help with that besides popping Advil 3 times a day.
There are many essential oil companies out there, but I knew a girl who sold doTERRA Essential Oils. I asked her what was good for head or neck tension and she suggested a tension blend. Again, I was skeptical at first because I did not know anyone close to me who used oils and did not know enough about oils. I also knew of something that already took away my pain (Advil), but I then remembered why I was doing this… to help my dad. And who knew, maybe it would help me feel better and others as well.
I got the oil in a bottle and it had a roll-on top, so I could apply it directly to the area where it hurt. I remember starting to feel the symptoms of a head tension coming on at school one day. So I rubbed it on my forehead and on my temples. It had an intense smell of wintergreen, which I absolutely loved! Within 30 seconds, I could feel the coolness of the oils working on my head. And within about 2 minutes the pain went away. I was shocked. I remember thinking, “No way, did those oils just help my head!”
The next time I felt head tension came on, I pulled it out and rubbed it on my head and it went away. I absolutely loved the roll on and wanted to see what else was out there. Maybe something for my dad’s digestion, or something for my mom’s nerve pain??
You Can Feel Better, Too
I decide to enroll so I could start my own collection of oils and start playing around with them. Two years later here I am still loving oils, and now I am selling oils and teaching others the amazing benefits of them!
Back to my parents… My dad has a couple of essential oils that have really helped him with his pain on a daily basis and is currently cancer free! And my mom uses one oil on her joints which really helps reduce pain and puffiness.
doTERRA essential oils are natural and 100% pure, so why not give them a try? I promise you will not regret it.
