then, one weekend when my mom was in town & cedar was sick, she said how one of her friends was telling her how great essential oils are & how helpful, & that maybe we should get some for cedar. after she mentioned that it would be a good idea, i immediately sparked up! & told her how badly i've wanted some, but can't bring myself to buy them. that we got eucalyptus so i can put it in cedars humidifier at night to help him breath & hopefully prevent colds, but that was all we had.
after that weekend, my mom being the incredibly giving & nice mom that she is, offered to buy us one of the doterra essential oil kits. i was so excited. everyday i would hope that the box would arrive & when it finally did i was the happiest.
since getting the oils i have literally used them daily. i use them on myself, i use them for cedar & i have gotten austin to use them. i've made candles with them, used a couple of flavoring food & drinks. i put them in my hair. i use them a lot. i love them. i never want to go without them again. they truly are so great & can be used for SO many different things. if you have never used essential oils, i highly recommend that you try them, they are worth the money. i promise.
a few of my favorite & most used oils are:
digestZen- austin & i both get stomach aches ALOT. i rub this on my belly & it helps so, so much.
frankincense- i have really dry skin, so i mix this with my face lotion a couple days a week. it's also really good for bug bites to help itching & makes them go away quicker.
breathe- i put it in cedars humidifier when he sleeps a couple nights a week. i also will dilute it with coconut oil & rub it on his chest to help if he has a cough &/or cold. it helps open airways for breathing, especially if he has a cold.
