About 20 years ago I was gifted a massage. I don’t remember if it was the first professional massage I’d had but it is the first one I remember. Aside from being to this day the best massage I’ve ever had, the masseuse used the most amazing essential oils. She had me hold different bottles in each hand, tested my strength and how it changed based on the essential oil I was holding. She created a profile of sorts to determine which oils would benefit me and used them for my massage.
Although I remember very clearly having that massage and how wonderful I felt for days after, essential oils were not something I really ever thought of using in a daily setting until last year.
Using Essential Oils For The First Time Again
Almost exactly a year ago I was gifted some sleepy rollers for my kids who at the time were the worlds worst sleepers. I used the rollers and they worked! My daughter went from taking over an hour to fall asleep to less than 30 minutes. My son was able to calm down and relax before bedtime so we could nurse and sleep in way less time. I bought the starter kit and used the oils to refill those rollers when they were empty. My kit sat otherwise untouched until someone put a stinky diaper in the garbage and I could not get the smell out. I finally took out the diffuser and put in some lemon and purification. And I was hooked.
During this last pregnancy I suffered from RLS for the first time. It kept me up for nights at a time and I was unable to get any rest. I tried all the “usual” remedies like pickle juice and they just didn’t work. Then I thought hey maybe some of those others oils sitting there collecting dust can help me. I did a little research, made a roller and finally got some sleep. I still use that roller for all the aches and pains that come with age and momming. I’ve added in allergy rollers, wellness rollers and I love experimenting with diffuser blends.
I’m just learning about all the different essential oils I can use for all the things and finding the ones that work best for me but I can say without hesitation the ones I have learned about and worked into my daily life have been nothing short of life changing.
I haven’t tried the strength test that masseuse used on me 20 years ago but I know when I use the right oils at the right times I feel as good as I did after that massage and I always want to feel that way.
