Get the 411, Not the 911

Essential oils had been calling to me, and I kept saying, "Wait a bit.  I'm not ready."  I had felt that I was overwhelmed with life --  with the tyranny of the urgent.   You see, years ago, a friend told me she was using essential oils, and she gave me a sample.  I enjoyed the oil, but as I usually do, I got online and began to research the company before getting involved.  I was appalled to see the overwhelming number of websites dedicated to the poor reputation of that company and its founder, so I waited.  I knew it was inevitable that I would come across a more excellent company later, and that gave me an excuse to keep waiting and not researching.

I am happy that I finally took the plunge last November and began using pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.  I began slowly, with an oil blend of Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Ho Wood, and Spruce, and within two weeks I was off of my DHEA (adrenal hormone).  This was a huge event for me, since I had been unsuccessfully attempting to wean off of the DHEA for eight years!

I am learning what a tremendous resource essential oils are, and how they are nature's "pharmacy" for us.  I'm hooked!  Most recently, I had a severe allergic reaction to a spider bite.  That brought about the worst itching I have ever experienced, and nothing (not even hydrocortisone cream) would dull the itching except Frankincense and lavender oils, diluted with fractionated coconut oil.

Looking forward to the rest of this journey!
