Hello! I’m Janet and Lisa asked me to share with you my experience with essential oils. Lisa actually introduced me to essential oils in April by sharing her experiences with them.
My main reason to get the oils was for my mom. She is 85 and doing fairly well, but is slowed down by some aches and pains each day. Together we lowered her blood pressure and increased her circulation by changing her diet. Over a year she stopped eating processed foods and drinks, added more steamed veggies and whole grains, and decreased her sugar. She is amazed how she no longer needed Ensure, cookies and candy each day and best of all no blood pressure medication!
She still suffers from aches and pains in her joints and body. One reason was not enough vitamin D. So she upped her dosage and felt better. She was getting leg cramps at night so she started measuring her water. She has a 1 liter bottle that she refills each morning and afternoon. She knows if she drinks the 2 liters (she’s tiny, only 5ft 110 lbs) that she will not get leg cramps. She then started drinking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in water each day. The apple cider vinegar reduces inflammation in the body and improves circulation. This also helped, but she was still suffering from “old age aches” and would take Tylenol. This is when Lisa introduced me to essential oils.
We got my mom the Aroma touch for her joints and the Deep blue for muscle aches. At first the oils were too hot for her skin. Even though these blends have coconut oil in them, it was not enough for her. So she diluted them down with coconut oil or almond oil. After one application she noticed a difference! She has continued with the oils for a couple months now and no longer has to dilute them with other oils. She now associates the smell of the oils with relaxation which is also very powerful.
