The best thing my family ever did was give essential oils a try. Don’t run off because this is not me trying to get you to sign up for anything. In fact the only sign up at all is an optional giveaway for $200 worth of oils. Woohoo! I just wanted to share my love for essential oils and how much they have changed our life. And if you already use oils you might find a few new ones that you want to give a try.
Essential Oils That Will Change Your Life
I’m going to start out with the only thing that helped my child sleep and I tried everything.
About a year and a half ago I was exhausted. I hadn’t had a full night’s sleep without a child waking me in 3 years. That’s right… 3 years of getting up every 2-3 hours.
Oh and when I say a full night’s sleep I’m thinking 4-5 hours not 8 or 9 or even 10. Nope 5 hours of uninterrupted zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz seemed like it was never going to happen.
I didn’t understand why this child would not sleep. I mean I consider myself a semi pro at parenting. I’ve had 5 kids, I’ve been raising kids for 25 years and I’ve never had a child that just never slept. Until Bells…
I started by diffusing lavender an hour before bedtime ( I love diffusers and have 4 in the house now). This helped bring calm to our nightly routine. I also mixed Lavender with Fractionated Coconut Oil and rubbed a little on her feet each night before bed.
I felt like it was a miracle… as soon as I started using the essential oils she started sleeping better. The 2 hours soon went to 5 hours and I was a much happier mama.
What I love about RMO is no pressure. Just great oils from a great company and that’s what I want for you too.
I’m not trying to get you to sign up for anything, you see Rocky Mountain Oils is a NON-MLM company. Founded in 2004, RMO was created by a collection of enthusiasts who were determined to develop essential oils that were pure and safe to use for the entire family.
I am so excited about RMO Kids! Being able to use oils safely and effectively on children is the best. Just a swipe with the roll on and everyone feels better.
I’ve always had a love for Lavender. The smell and all of the wonderful benefits it carries.
Promotes general mental and physical well being
The smell alone is wonderful
Still Not Sure About Essential Oils
If you’re still skeptical about it I get it, but let me tell you another story about My husband the total skeptic… I changed his opinion quick once I started using the essential oils on him.
It started when about a year or so ago my husband was going through a stressful time with work. I talked him into trying Tranquility rubbed on the back of his neck with a carrier oil. He immediately said it relaxed him and helped him sleep.
He was sold on it and now uses it regularly.
He also does a lot of lifting for work and works out everyday so he was always complaining about his shoulders hurting. I massaged a drop of Pain ease onto his shoulders (with a carrier oil of course) and he was shocked at how well it worked.
Of course now he is using this as a little excuse to get a massage on his shoulders… 😉 I’ve got his number though. Ha!
Personally I am a big fan of the essential oil blends and roll on, because they are easy for a busy mom and perfect for kids. But you can also stick with single oils and make your own blends.
Another great oil to have on hand is Immune Strength – Anything that strengthens your immune system and helps myself and my children from getting sick is a winner.
I have used several of the single oils (orange, lemon, peppermint, lavender and more) in all of the sensory play that we do. It gives it an added natural touch and has health benefits while they play.
I could go on and on about our favorites and my ever growing oil case, but that’s for another day. For today I’ll leave you with this, we have been happier and healthier than ever and I feel like a large part of that is knowing and using essential oils.
You can restore your mental, physical and emotional well-being with essential oils.
I’d love to hear about some of your favorites. You can leave a comment below and share your thoughts. They make my day.
