Let’s rewind back to about 5 years ago. When I first started using essential oils as a part of my natural medicine toolbox, I went about it all wrong. You see… I started using the oils before I really knew a whole lot about them.
Sure I knew which oil to use for which ailment and to put a certain number of drops in a certain amount of carrier oil, but honestly, that’s about it. I knew nothing about the different methods that can be used with essential oils, about blending the right oils together to create powerhouse synergy blends, or about safely using these concentrated oils on myself and my kids other than not using them straight on the skin.
You see, I was like many natural mamas today. I was trying to avoid toxins and meds and go with something natural, and instead of learning about this particular option myself, I blindly went along with what other people told me about it. Plus, it was natural, and natural means safe, right?
