The simplest way to say it was that I was an extreme doubter. I am an individual who says - ‘give me a pill’. Just make it better with a pill. No nonsense and just straight up. The essential oils had been floating around me for at least a year. All the claims of success - I just thought it was all in their heads and whomever said it worked couldn’t have been really sick. It was the placebo effect. Right! That was all. That is what I thought. Of course, I have struggled with several ailments. More common with someone my age. Arthritis, joint pain, thyroid dysfunction, skin and energy issues. You name it! Basically I have felt like I am slowly falling apart. Last year I had a few unusual health issues. First my thyroid had a lump that came on suddenly and was sticking out on my neck. At the same time I had swollen lymph nodes in my neck for months. I was exhausted. With the thyroid lump I needed a biopsy. None of the tests on my lymph nodes had resulted in anything but confirming they were swollen. With a lump in my thyroid sticking out in my neck - well...there were some obvious concerns. I needed a biopsy. Ok, I could do that... until they told me no Advil a week before and after the biopsy. Suddenly they had my attention! I can’t do that. Do they know the pain I deal with every day ? I take 4 Advil several times a day! I can’t go without it! But I had no choice, I had to refrain. I shared this with a dear friend at church. She told me essential oils could help. She gave me a bottle and I nodded my gratitude- but dropped it in my purse with a fleeting thought of ‘yeah, right’. If I have pain, I need a pill, not some oil. A week later I had a headache and knew I couldn’t take Advil. I tried to work through it but out of desperation I pulled the oil blend from my purse, Young Living Essential Oils - Panaway. I rubbed it on my temples and back of my neck feeling foolish. About 10 minutes later, and to my amazement, my headache was gone! I was floored! How is this possible? From there I began to research. How was this possible? Several weeks later, after a great deal of research, my eyes were opened and I was amazed- Essential Oils have been around for centuries and in a educated hand could make a HUGE difference in an individual’s Health and Wellness. I was so curious- and I researched more. And the more I learned, the more I tried, and the more I recognized this was real. And Young Living was the best oil on the market.
