Back to the Essentials

Essential oils that is!  One of my coworkers has been talking about essential oils and how well they work for her family for weeks. She uses one of the bigger companies and swears by them for everything from headaches to hyperactivity. My curiosity was definitely peaked so I figured it was worth the research and research I did.

Using EO's isn't just some fad, people have been using them forever and they're finally starting to become a more popular alternative in peoples every day life. So I thought what the heck, it can't hurt to try. So I ordered some lavender from one of the bigger companies and gave it a try on Ethan. Lavender is said to have a calming effect and calm it did. I won't say it completely mellowed him out but I did notice a dramatic difference with his mood and temperament.
 So of course seeing this made me want to try more but the problem is the big name companies  is despite the fact that they both have good reviews for quality products they are pricey and when your trying to save money its hard to rationalize spending upwards of $30 plus on 5 to 10ml of something. So back to researching I and found a product I like in a price range I can afford.
Now some people may argue this with me, and that's ok. Different people prefer different products its human. I'm not trying to sell you on anything, instead just letting you know what works for me.

I have about 6 or 7 different oils I use for a variety of things thus far and over time plan on expanding my collection.  I have a calmer child, less head aches, and have even started making some of my own cleaning supplies which is something I never would have thought about doing until recently. I pretty much go nowhere without my lavender and lemon oils with me.
If you haven't thought about using essential oils its definitely worth doing your research, but that's the catch- don't just jump into it. Try different brands, learn about the companies and find one that works for what you need.

Happy Hunting!
