I have an oil for that
About a month ago, I was looking through my phone for a selfie because I needed a profile picture for something. And I was seriously shocked to see that I couldn’t find one. The last selfie I took was in the beginning of April.
This probably isn’t weird for most people. But it was really weird for me. Especially because I have my little kids and I am always trying to get them to take pictures with me. How are we in the end of September...and I don’t have a picture of my face in any way for the past almost 5 months?
Well that’s because I can’t even begin to tell you how miserable I was. I try to find ways and words to explain what my body felt like. The pressure I felt all throughout. The way my head was buzzing. The way even opening my eyes was a problem. How I couldn’t eat anything. I barely wanted to drink water. Not to mention I was pregnant. 25 pounds lighter in 5 months...face completely broken out...so stinky.
When I got my first oil kit in the mail, I opened the box and immediately closed it.
The reason is when I opened it, the aroma that poured out was so intensely satisfying I wanted to savor it for as long as possible. Everyone that walked towards it I would yell “DON’T OPEN THAT BOX!!!! and if you must breathe it in deep..”
From the moment I pulled those cardboard arms back to this moment right now...my entire life changed. And I know, that’s crazy and dramatic. But it isn’t. I not only feel better now than I have in the past 6 months, I feel better than I have my entire life.
How? How did this happen? How did my body change so instantly? Why do I feel like I am living in a miracle? I have more energy, I am more relaxed, I feel more radiant, I have kids who are resting well at night.
I fell in love with these oils, and I had no idea what I was doing. Since then I have spent almost all my spare time reading about essential oils and how they work to heal our bodies. I thought these oils were just fragrance. They aren’t. They are the actual plant, broken down into an oil. They have amazing medicinal and cosmetic qualities. They are made to help you actually feel better and look better. PACKED with antioxidants. Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral. When diffused, they don’t mask scents..they actually clean the air and the germs within the air.
When a person smells an essential oil scent, the scent is carved by the olfactory nerve cells in the nose to the olfactory system. Which sends the aroma straight to your brain and into the limbic system. This is where all your emotions and emotional behaviors are.. which is how essential oils are used to release a negative mood, or tension in the brain. These oils also release seratonin and endorphins which are your bodies mood enhancers. And did you know, OUR SENSE OF SMELL IS 10,000 TIMES MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY OTHER SENSE? Smelling is immediately released into your brain. Other senses need to travel through your spinal chord and nervous system to your brain.
When you apply essential oils topically through your skin - the biggest organ on your body - they have a direct route to your blood stream. This is where they fight for your body. Once the oils have gone into your bloodstream, they move to the organs and systems that they are designed to help. When you apply these oils to your pulse points it does an extra effect of getting them into your bloodstream as this is where the blood is closest to your skin which will then absorb into your body quicker and get to work faster for you. Essential oils are completely natural. They clean your body. They strengthen the immune system.
That is what I know to be true of essential oils. This is why I know that they worked for me…and this is why I know they will work for you when applied correctly to your body.
When you hear or read something that says “I have an oil for that!” It’s true. There are so many oils and they all have so many benefits.
I have this huge desire to help people get natural healing for their bodies. I have experienced such positive things. And I know you can too. This is why I have started Better Blends. So that I can help you find a blend that will do exactly what you need it to do.
I had just discovered I was pregnant with our 3rd baby in under 4 years.
It was not going well. I came to find out later my body was under incredible stress.
But I was...ill.
I lost 25 pounds in 16 weeks. I couldn't eat. I had a constant headache. I was mad all the time.
I needed help. I needed change.
I discovered essential oils through looking for ways to feel better on Pinterest.
I knew NOTHING about them, but was very intrigued.
I found a company that I loved that sold them and bought my first kit. I even signed up to be an advisor because it was something I instantly became so passionate about.
The first week using these oils, so many things in my life changed..
For the first time in 5 months, I had zero headache. It just went away.
For the fist time in forever, my son Luca slept in his bed the entire night, for multiple nights in a row AND went to bed at a reasonable hour. He had struggled with sleep and bedtime for his entire 3 year old life.
I was able to make myself feel at peace with the life that was approaching.
They provided me an outlet to bring help and relief to others in such a tangible way.
I decided to start sharing immediately all about how these products work and how life changing they are.
This information....was a lot. It is hard to look at a website, read about the oils and then know what to do with them. This brought me to the idea of Better Blends. I have such a big desire to help. And Better Blends breaks these oils into pre diluted items that allows you to use them and reap the benefits.
There are oils for literally every ailment you can come up with. There is a way to get the relief you are looking for.
