How I find relief in my health.

June 19, 2019

Welcome back!! 

 A while ago I posted on Facebook + Instagram about how I have found relief with my health struggles, using Essential Oils. I am so excited to finally share with you everything I have been doing!

 

Man oh man have they been a game changer in my day to day life.

You will never find me without my rollers. 

 

Here we go!

Under each photo you'll find each blend and what I use them for. 

 

And keep this cool 'DID YOU KNOW' tip in mind when you're reading...

It takes 22 second for Essential Oils to reach your brain, 2 minutes for Essential Oils to reach your blood stream + 20 minutes for Essential Oils to reach every cell in your body. 

How wild is that!??!

 

Okay, carry on....

 

 

 

Fibromyalgia fi·bro·my·al·gia:  chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in localized areas.

 

Most people are unsure what Fibromyalgia is, so I thought I would share the definition.

 

If you struggle with this, I am so sorry... You are so strong and a warrior for finding strength during your flare ups. You are not alone in this and I hope you can find some relief with these blends I'll be sharing. 

 

During a flare up, I will use this blend on the areas that hurt, as well as my inner wrist and bottom of my feet. 

\\ Ladies... this blend is also incredible for cramps!

This recipe is for a 10ml Roller Bottle:

- 15 drops Panaway 

- 6 drops Lavender 

- 10 drops Peppermint

- 6 drops Copaiba

Then I top off the bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil. 

 

 

 headache+ migraines

 

Ughhhh. Do you get these monsters?! 

They are no fun.

Whenever I feel like I am getting a headache I'll roll this baby around my hairline and the backs of my ears. Works like a charm every time. 

The peppermint is key in this roller. The stronger the better. 

Even on a hot summer day I will roll this behind my ears and neck to cool my body temp down!

 The Sleep Struggle 

 

Those of us who have Fibro or insomnia know that sleep can be a task in itself.... 

I now can not sleep without this blend. It's beautiful. 

I think I called my friend crying the next morning because I was finally able to sleep

without a muscle relaxer.... 

This was a big deal for me.

I was tired of being groggy every morning and tired of taking prescriptions for relief.

Whether you need sleep support due to pain, insomnia or even if your other half that snores....

I pray this will help you like it's helped me!

 

I roll this on my wrists, chest and bottoms of my feet.

Tummy Love

 

Those of you that know me, know I struggle with tummy issues. 

Unfortunately I have IBS, Gluten + Dairy allergies..... 

So eating out, even at family and friend's events, has been tough to say the least... 

You never know what ingredients are hiding in certain foods. Even if you think they may

be "safe" for you... you may get hit with a surprise... the gift of an upset tummy. 

Unfortunately having these tummy issues has causes a lot of daily anxiety...

which I will share a little bit further down.....

 

This blend NEVER and I mean NEVER leaves my side. 

I roll this all over my tummy and massage it in. You can roll it on the bottoms of your feet as well.

-15 drops peppermint

oh the nerve......Sciatica.

 

Yes this is one of the worst parts of my flare ups.... sciatica.

Not only does it effect your back.... It can effect your legs.

If you have this.....again you are warrior. 

I have collapsed from this pain, had difficulty walking, sitting and standing. 

Being a Wedding Photographer has definitely increased my flare ups because I am on my feet all day and night.. So this little blend has helped me muster through the day. 

 

I'll apply this all over my lower back, wrists and even on my glutes where the pain in lingering.

Anxiety+ depression

 

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and IBS at the age of 17, right before I graduated High School.

Wasn't expecting that surprise coming into adulthood, was I.... 

With that, came along the lovely anxiety and depression that began to get the best of me... 

 

I wouldn't go anywhere unless I drove the car ( for years this continued ).

I felt like I had to be in control...  

What if my tummy acted up and we missed an exit to the nearest restroom?!

Therefore I had to have control over that.

My brain would constantly be planning an escape route incase I wasn't feeling good.

It wouldn't matter where I was, I was always planning. 

I would over analyze EVERYTHING... Sometimes I still do. 

If I have plans with family or friends, I would rather drive separate than having them pick me up... because of that' WHAT IF' factor.... 

I have to plan when I eat before we have something to do, just so I give myself enough time incase my tummy is upset.... It's exhausting all this planning.

 

Let's chat about DISNEYLAND for a moment..... 

This was our second home, Chris and I would go once a week to this magic kingdom. 

Let's just say I have had my fair share of panic attacks at the happiest place on earth. 

My anxiety would effect me so bad to the point that I wouldn't go on any of the rides,.....

Especially Pirates of the Caribbean or Small World.... Why you ask? 

They are the two longest rides in the park, about 15 minutes long , and you're stuck on a boat with no escape..... 

My wheels would start turning... How would I jump off to an exit if I started to feel sick.. 

This has happened to me..... It was a terrible experience. Thankfully I was with friends who understood my anxiety and they helped me calm down.

You start to go into a panic, your body temperature rises and you feel like it's hard to breathe. 

You have lost all control. 

 

I am thankful to say that my anxiety has improved dramatically! 

 

Whenever I feel like my heart rate is rising or i'm feeling moody... 

I'll give my wrists, chest and behind the neck some love with this blend.

Immune Support

 

I find that I have a very weak immune system..... so these oils have been a lifesaver for me. 

Theives alone is a powerful blend to fight off bacteria, and it helps protect your immune system. 

If I feel a cold coming this is what I attack it with.

Theres even a whole
