We are no strangers to medical issues, sports injuries, and grief (and all that comes with it), but we have always pursued a natural remedy before running to modern medicine. In December of 2014, I was suffering from a long-lasting cold that just wasn’t getting better. My body was worn down and was having trouble doing its job of healing. Our Oily Sisterhood founder, Dr. Edie, showed up at my door with a diffuser and an arsenal of essential oils to that support the immune system. I quickly got better, and I was hooked. And frankly, if all it did for me was smell therapy that would be enough. But it did more.
The more classes I attended, the more I realized the healing properties of oils.
There is the reason God gave them to us. There was a reason Frankincense and Myrrh were brought to Mary. These oils are as natural as they come, and I can't believe it took me so long to find them--or for them to find me! There were so many times over the years that my family could have benefitted from the added support of essential oils.
Just in case you were thinking I'm totally crazy, I want you to know that I'm not anti-medicine. My youngest has to take medicine for his heart everyday. Our bodies are amazing, though, and designed for healing, but so often our first response is to reach for drugs. How much better it is to support our systems instead of suppressing them.
And don’t get me started on the journey of grief. It is amazing to me the ability a drop of Joy has made on my mental state. Rubbing it on my heart has turned many of my days around. Life will always be hard, but that drop reminds me of the joy I have in the Lord.
