Essential Oils

We have a friend who is a very big user of essential oils.  We listened and considered but until my husband lost his job and we lost our insurance, we only thought about it.  This winter, when we started coming down with various sinus issues,  we decided it was time to try some essential oils.

Our friend recommended a book by Valerie Worwood called "The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy".

This book is really a handy tool.  It includes a list of oils for beginners and some common uses for the oils both singly and in combinations.

We have been amazed at the effectiveness of these oils.  We have used them in treating sinusitis, stiff muscles, headaches, stomach pain, and sore feet.  Unbelievably  the small amounts of oil used has proven effective in most of these instances.

Most of the information we came across on the internet calls for the use of a diffuser to disperse the oil into the air.  Diffusers are expensive, and as I said, my hubby is unemployed, so we looked for alternatives.  We found a warm steam vaporizer and have been using that.  It was under $20 and has proven very effective.  A diffuser would probably work better but for now we will stick with our vaporizer.

Essential oils have certainly worked wonders for us, and saved us a bundle in doctor's bills.  We sure are thankful our friend shared this info with us.
