I had been considering purchasing my essential oils kit for about two years before I took the plunge. I had tried a few brands but had not found any real success with them. Some of them even made me feel quite ill: migraines, nausea, and they just didn’t smell good. Finally, after dealing with a years-long issue with one of my children and finding zero answers, I decided to ask my friend, Kathy, for her recommendation. I knew that she was an avid user of Young Living essential oils and that she would give me a well-thought-out list of resources to try. She did, I did, and that is why I am here today to tell you why the quality of your essential oils matters.
Why the Quality of Your Essential Oils Matters
As I previously mentioned, one of my kids needed some help. We had been dealing with a bed-wetting issue for way too long in our house, and we were to the point where it was beginning to affect this child’s self-esteem. Not to mention the constant washing of bedding and trying of remedies that never seemed to help. We cut out drinks before bed, tried waking this child up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, encouraged more potty breaks throughout the day, had allergy testing done, did sleep testing to find out if there was a sleep apnea issue, and more, all to no avail. We were exhausted! And we didn’t know what else to do or try. Doctors did not have any more options for us except to try an alarm at night or to begin giving this kiddo steroids. No, thank you!
The recommendation given to me by my sweet friend was to purchase a bottle of Cypress essential oil, make up a roller bottle, and have my child begin rolling it across the belly each night before bed. We did this and almost immediately began seeing results. There was a night with no wet sheets; then three nights; then two weeks; and before long, it was normal and expected for this child to wake up dry every single morning. After a short while with no regression, we were able to stop the nightly roll-on routine, and still no more wetting. Hallelujah, we had found an answer!
Honestly, I wish I had thought to actually keep a log of the timeframe so I could give better details and simply to know for myself. I don’t know exactly what was going on with my child’s body that couldn’t prevent this nighttime bedwetting, but one little bottle of Cypress essential oil apparently held the key to the support that was needed. This is how I knew that quality definitely matters and that Youg Living essential oils were the only way to go for me when I did decide to purchase my own premium starter kit.
Why I Share About Essential OIls
I am so happy and grateful that my friend never stopped sharing her knowledge about essential oils with me. She consistently and patiently answered my questions. She truly wanted to help me find success for my family and was willing to share the resources that she had access to with me.
One bottle of quality essential oils changed the trajectory of my family’s life. We are still on the journey. We have learned so much along the way and there is still much more to be discovered. I can’t keep quiet about the ways our family benefits from the addition of essential oils and supplements to our daily lives and the best way to invest in family wellness.
