Let's get to the point. Do essential oils really do more than make your house smell good?
I have to put my 2 cents in on this topic. So here's my story. A little over a year ago I was invited to a class to learn about essential oils. I cannot lie, I was skeptic....super skeptic! After hearing about their multiple uses and peoples countless testimonies, I was curious and decided to have an open mind. I purchased a "starter kit". It sat in my closet...for 6 months! I didn't know what to do with them and I didn't even try. Well, one night I was laying in bed with tears rolling down my face and I honestly thought my head was going to explode. I tried EVERYTHING! So I did what everyone else does these days and I googled it. I couldn't believe how many times peppermint oil was recommended. Guess what? I had it. I remember this night like it was yesterday because I was literally digging in my closet for it. You can imagine how horribly organized it is in there. LOL! After ripping off the shrink wrap (yup, I didn't even open up the box), I pulled out the peppermint. I did exactly what was suggested. I rubbed the oil carefully onto my temples and across my forehead and the back of my neck. Nothing happened. The tears were now a full blown ugly girl cry. Not a pretty sight. I ran into the bathroom so I didn't wake up my husband. Then suddenly I had this weird tingling sensation. Oh great! So my head hurts, I am exhausted and now I'm having a reaction to this damn oil. I was about to wake up Shannon when suddenly that tingling feeling was actually a cooling sensation. It was a bit of a relief. I waited a few minutes and by-golly I felt better. It did not make the "tap dancing on my skull" go away completely. It did, however, give me relief. After about a half hour, I reapplied the peppermint and went to sleep. Voila!
The next day, I was all over that 'starter kit'. I had to know what else I had and what else these oils can do. For the first few weeks, I diffused all day, everyday. Yes, they did make my house smell good! However, after all my google searches, I also learned that essential oils have therapeutic benefits as well. Fast forward to today, I have now incorporated essential oils into our everyday life. Who knew there were so many uses?!
I mean, its from PLANTS! That's what we stand for and now, it's what I believe are essential in our life. We try everyday to be one step closer to a chemical free home and essential oils have lead the way.

Essential oils are becoming more and more popular. Why? Because they work! Originally, I only thought they would make my house smell good. After a little research, I have learned that with the right company, these little bottles of oil have powerful healing benefits as well. If you're one of those skeptic people- good! You should be. But don't knock it til you try it!
