Some of you are going to laugh at me because I’m behind the times (again!) but I do.not.care. I am giddy with my “new” discovery!
I gave up burning candles in my home long ago, because as much as I (usually) liked the scent,
- My husband did not. Candles make him queasy.
- Burning candles give me a headache. (true story)
- We have children. (‘nough said)
Not to mention all the yakkity-yak about the harmful chemicals and carcinogens in candles. Ick. So, while I may burn one for a bit right before expected company shows up (what?! I know I’m not the only one who does that…) the few that I have left just sit there and look pretty.
Well, now. Recently some friends have been in my ear about the benefits of essential oils, specifically therapeutic grade essential oils. I’m intrigued! When I hear about how the oils have replaced nearly all the over the counter meds in their homes (full of children) I’m really curious. (Yes, some of you are still laughing because I live under a rock. I forgive you.)
Long story short, I decided I need to try these oils in our quest for healthier, lower chemical living. So I bought some. I purchased a diffuser (with a coupon!). I ran the diffuser today with the (free!) Citrus Fresh oil that it came with, and
I am in love.
Invigorating scent wafting through my home, no flame, no chemicals, and many health benefits to boot.
Citrus Fresh™ is a relaxing, calming blend loved by children and adults alike. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it supports the immune system and overall health while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy. It also works as an air purifier.
It just smells so good in here! That’s enough for me for now, but I’m so excited to try the oils out in other ways, too. First up? That pesky wart on my knee. I hear Frankincense is good for that. I’ll let you know if it works!
It’s still a very new thing for me, but I’m declaring my essential oils a Finer Thing! All of you who are already familiar with the oils can stop your giggles and tell me which ones are worth investing in. What do you use them for? I’m ready to learn! (And for those of you under the rock with me, I’m happy to share what I know and give you my member number if you want some oils for yourself. Or you can sign up here. Email me!)
