How I got started with essential oils.
Before we get started, you may view my disclosure here.
Let me tell you how I got started.
I’ve had migraines occasionally. Then it got to the point, it was just about once a week. Something that a simple pill would help as long as i wasnt already getting sick to my stomach.
Back in 2011, I wanted something besides daily medication. Going to the Dr. or Urgent Care to have shots to help with migraines and my nausea was not fun.
I spent alot of time sleeping because of the medication I had taken , or the shots but it got to the point where I thought I didn’t have a choice. I would get sick 3 – 4 hrs without it slowing up. Shots was the only way to make it stop at the time.
So I did my research online, looked into “natural remedies”, and came across easentail oils. It’s one of those things were you think it’s going to be a waste of money. So what do I do, I order some anyways.
Starting with essential oils, I did a little research online of which ones are 100% pure essentail oils. I had come across this brand to try.
I didn’t want to spend too much money on something I wasn’t sure of, but I had to try something.
My first essential oils I tried was lavender and peppermint. As soon as I had a headache coming on, I would apply lavender to my forehead, keeping it away from my eyes. Lavender is considered calming and soothing. It worked rather well. I thought it was just a coincidence.
The next time I had a headache, I tried peppermint. It was very cooling, but with migraines, certian smells can make them worse.
So after using myself as a guinea pig, I have found that the lavender was more helpful for the headaches and migraines. The peppermint is great on my stomach when I felt sick to my stomach.
After all I had found a home remedy that kept me from going to the doctors almost every week. I have essentail oils all over my home for different uses.
