Last week, everyone in the family had headaches and/or upset stomachs, including my nephew. (Sorry for the different sized photos, I’m new at this!)
My daughter had tummy discomfort & headaches. For her tummy, I rubbed a few drops of diluted DigestZen on the upper part of her tummy by her sternum. She felt better in minutes. A few hours later, she had the same discomfort again, so applied more DigestZen. It went away & stayed away :)
For her headache, I rubbed Past Tense on her forehead, temples & back of her neck. I had never used it before & wanted her out of pain as quickly as possible. I went a bit overboard & rubbed the roller across her head 5 times. In a couple of minutes, she complained of a burning sensation. I got the fractionated coconut oil out (any coconut oil will do) & rubbed it on her forehead to dilute the Past Tense. *Update: I always dilute my essential oils now, usually 2 drops EO to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil. She felt better in a few minutes (burning & headache-wise). Moral of the story: Essential oils are really powerful, a little goes a long way & should always be diluted!
My nephew had a REALLY upset stomach. We looked after him on Friday. I put DigestZen all over his tummy to help. He was nauseated all the time, especially after eating. The DZ helped but he still felt poorly when his Mum picked him up in the afternoon.
I went away for the weekend & took my oils with me, but he was well enough to go to his Summer program today & yesterday. I had an upset stomach over the weekend, and rubbed DigestZen into my stomach. Voila! All better.
I had some discomfort in my left leg yesterday, it felt like it was in a vein. I rubbed 3 drops of Lemon into the hurting area & the discomfort was completely gone in less than 5 minutes & hasn’t come back.
I’ve been using Lavender, Frankincense & Clary sage for these things to support healthy heart function and blood pressure. I massage them (mixed with several drops of fractionated coconut oil) into the soles of my feet, wrists, sternum area, over my heart, and on the pulse points on my neck.
Now it’s time for me to get back to my herbal studies…
