  1. I think essential oils are great for some things, but not an alternative to modern medicine. I use lavender oil often for relaxing.

    1. I agree that I would never want to not follow your doctor’s orders or to fail to seek medical advice or treatment when you need it! We’ve used essential oils to help maintain and support our overall health so that we dont need to go to the doctor – which I am completely in favor of! When I recently took my youngest son in for his well visit – the doctor remarked on the fact that we hadn’t been in to see him in over ten months!

  2. Well. Dang it, now I want to jump on the band wagon, what can essential oils do for allergies? Right now it’s either a sinus infection, a cold or all my allergy meds just don’t seem to be working. I’ll try anything at this point.

    1. Hi! I’m so glad you mentioned allergies. Conquering my spring allergies are HIGH on the list of my great (and unexpected) successes with essential oils. You can read about my allergies here and how the essential oils helped me. https://themidlifemamas.com/natural-allergy-relief/
      Take a look and message me if you have any questions or you would like to get started! Please know that I have only used Young Living oils and that they are the ONLY oils I can recommend ingesting because of their seed to seal purity guarantee. I am also NOT a doctor – just a mom and somebody who has had a lot of success with essential oils.

  3. I need go try EO. I’m ordering some to try this week! I hear such great things and I hear all the benefits for kids are amazing. Need.

    1. First of all. Six time mommy. Respect 🙂 I’ve got some fabulous specials going on this month with over $50 in free gifts included with a Premium Starter Kit which includes 11 everyday oils, a diffuser, a roller ball top, samples to share with friends, samples of Ningxia Red (a fabulous antioxidant filled supplement) and an educational quick reference – giving you everything you need to get started right away! Along with educational materials, including a reference book with over 400 pages, ongoing education and support, is Holly Homer’s book 101 Kids Activities (from Kids Activities Blog), a diffuser necklace, and a $20 Amazon gift card. The oils are not only great for health, but have enabled me to eliminate SO many toxins in cleaning products. I do almost all of my cleaning now with essential oils and things that I make with them. You can get a flavor of what I do here: https://themidlifemamas.com/essential-oils-clean-kids-rooms/ Please message me if you have any questions or if you are ready to get started!

  4. I have been considering looking further into essential oils. I am really happy to have found your post. I love hearing the benefits you found and also learning about Young Living. I will definitely check them out!

    1. Hi Amy! Thank you for checking out my post! I read yours and, although I’m not a doctor, I have to wonder if there is help for you with the oils. I’ll give you two places to start investigating. One place you can start is here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed
      This site is searchable and provides information on scientific studies and research that has been done on various oils. I also always try to remember when searching that any given study does not typically discuss the grade of oil used in the study; Young Living’s oils are of the highest therapeutic grade quality. The second site that you could use to investigate is:
      http://www.oil-testimonials.com
      This site, again, is searchable – but instead contains testimonials from regular people who have had successes with the oils. I’m not a doctor – but reading testimonials was very helpful for me in making my decision. I’m a “where there’s smoke, there’s fire – or at least something worth checking out” kinda girl 🙂
      I hope this helps you as you begin to look into whether you thinking trying essential oils would be a good fit for you. If you have any questions, I would be happy to help in any way I can.

  5. Essential oils well, to tell you the truth I’m not into oils mainly because I’m oily enough. My face especially I’ve never dabbled into essential oils sorry.

    1. Wow – Argon oil is a new one to me! I have heard many people using one drop of lavender in their mascara to help grow longer, stronger lashes. There are a lot of great reasons to start with essential oils: health, to reduce uses of cleaning toxins in your home, beauty products without toxins, – just so many great things to try with essential oils. I’d love to help you learn more whenever you’re ready!

  6. This is my first time to learn about essential oils. I’ll check Healthy Options the next time I visit the mall to see if they have one.

  7. i have been hearing a lot about essential oils but I am yet to venture out into them. The benefits are so amazing that I am considering getting some as soon as I settle down in few weeks time.

  8. i just got all into this stuff this past winter and OMG was I missing out!! I just love essential oils! I will have to check out Young Living when I run low!

    1. It’s amazing, isn’t it? I still get giddy hearing about successes other people are having! I’ll be happy to share Young Living with you when you’re ready!

  9. This is an awesome post indeed. I do know there are more families turning to essential oils for their health need. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I’ve heard many great things about essential oils. They really have become important to everyone’s lives. I need to get on board and try it.

  11. From one oily family to another, congrats! I love diffusing and have several oils on the go constantly and don’t get me started about cleaning with oils as well. So many uses.

  12. I recently starting using essential oils to make homemade toothpaste and relaxing bath salts… it works so incredibly well! Loved hearing how you were able to help your mother <3

  13. This looks great! I love essential oils! They are so versatile and smell so awesome!
