Hello to all of you who are visiting from over at Myra’s! Welcome!
I grew up in Houston and if you had told me when I was 13 that I would grow up to become an Oiler the shock would have caused me to spit out my Mr. Pibb. But it turns out that years after the team of my youth has gone to football heaven, the term is now being used for people who use essential oils regularly. Who knew?!
Being an oiler myself now, I have lots to say on the subject. I have told y’all so much already about how I use my Young Living oils, but today I’m joining some other bloggers to just get to the nitty gritty and share how we use them every day.
One thing I want to stress is that I didn’t just go out and buy these oils all at once. First you get the kit, then you fall in love with those so you get a couple of other oils. It makes you so happy that you get one for your husband’s foot fungus and then HE loves them. Then you all live happily ever after.
Here’s a rundown from an average day in my life.
PanAway: I rub on my right knee. I fell a few years ago and that knee has never been the same. It has some pain that PanAway takes care of and it never bothers me during my morning walk!
Thieves: On the bottom of my feet to get my body ready for the day.
Valor: My favorite oil. I put it on my wrists to help me focus and it just makes me feel empowered to take on the day.
Mint: I mix peppermint and spearmint in my little rollon bottle and rub it in my palms and a little under my chin. It really wakes me up and makes me feel alive!
Once I get home from my walk, I take a quick shower then put on more oils. Have you seen the little shelf in my bathroom where I keep them? We sell these in our shop because they are so, so handy! Plus having them in full view makes it so much easier to remember to use them.
After I dry off I use these…..
Thieves: On the bottom of my feet (you will notice a pattern)
Endoflex: I use this for my thyroid and adrenal issues. I rub it across my lower back several times a day. It works for me to just do it whenever I go to the bathroom.
Myrtle: This is a great oil for thyroid (It’s really good for a BUNCH of things!) so I rub it on my neck over my thyroid several times a day.
Each day holds its own set of challenges, so I try to use some oils specific for the needs of that day. On a normal stay-at-home day of homeschooling, managing life with 9 kids and just generally trying to get everything done, I would use something like these….
Clarity: I’d use this to keep my thoughts clear and help me remember what is really important. I would rub it over my temples and the back of my neck.
Peace & Calming: The name speaks for itself. I would put this over my heart or on the bottom of my feet. Just play with where you get the most benefit.
Those two oils I would also put in the diffuser in the living room or school room. If I don’t have something like this in the diffuser, I would start the day with Thieves in there. I diffuse something almost every morning. It just helps get off to a great start!
Also, I use a great oil blend to help me with my weight loss….
Slique: I put several drops in my water all day long. It helps cut down my cravings and it has a really great flavor!
And to end the day I always use these 2 oils right before bed….
Peace & Calming: I rub it across my forehead
Lavender: I put a squirt of unscented lotion in my hand and 2 drops of lavender. Then I rub it all over my hands and arms and if any of the kids happen to be standing nearby I rub it on them too.
I feel so good from all of my oils I may just start playing some football after all!
