These tiny little bottles of plant juice magic have changed my life over the past year. My daughter introduced me to Young Living Essential Oils about a year ago now. I wasn’t too sure about them to start with, but after seeing the positive effects they have had on my health I can’t deny their power.
Everything from sleep support to immune support, they have drastically helped me. One of the biggest things they have helped is supporting my immune system. Since being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, I’ve had to take drugs that suppress my immune system to help make the other drugs I have to take work. With that being said… I am eternally grateful for the incredible oil called Thieves. It is an essential oil blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary.
This is a great immune support oil that I use every single day. I either rub it on the bottoms of my feet and spine before I go to bed every night or if I am feeling a little off I will take it internally. It’s a little spicy, so don’t be caught off guard when you taste it for the first time. HAHA 🙂
Some of my other favorite everyday oils are Lemongrass, Frankincense, Lavender, and Panaway. Lemongrass is my current favorite oil to diffuse at the office. It is very uplifting and eliminates all the stinky odors. Frankincense is my go-to skin oil. I put a drop under my eyes every night to help support my skin and make me have fresh eyes in the morning 🙂 Lavender is my favorite sleep support oil. Not only does it smell amazing, but it is very calming! Panaway is great for after a workout or when you are trying to support those aches and pains. It smells a lot like icy-hot!
