My (spa) shower

Published January 22, 2015 by lynn k scott

I am slowly building up my collection of essential oils.  In recent years,  I have slowly turned away from household chemicals for cleaning and for treating health ailments.  While some people refuse to accept essential oils can be powerful in aiding in treatments of various ailments, others, such as myself, know this to be different.

While I am not against Western medicine as a whole, I am against the overuse of prescription drugs and over-the-counter (OTC) medications.  I will always try a homeopathic remedy before losing time from work, shelling out $25-$40 to see a doctor who can’t keep to the appointment I set, only to tell me there’s nothing that can be done and come back in a few days (and another co-pay) if need be.

OTC sleep aides are all the rage; for some people.  Like everyone else, I have my daily stressors and bad days.  Sometimes I need to relax and I just can’t.  Those days (or nights), I turn to my essential oils.  While I love the spa atmosphere, my wallet doesn’t.  As a compromise, I will add a few drops of lavender oil or a calming blended oil to the back of my shower.  In a few moments, when the steam fills the room, I am surrounded by a relaxing aromatherapy.

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I could help waking up.  In those instances, I reach for a wild orange essential oil or something along that line to get me going.  I am a citrus fan and it’s always been invigorating to me.

This is just one use for essential oils.  There are countless others.  Not all essential oils are created equal.  Do your research or get a referral if you are new to using essential oils.

DISCLAIMER:  I am not a physician and this neither medical advice, nor is it intended to replace medical advice from a licensed medical practitioner.  This is simply MY experience(s) with essential oils and how I personally use them.  Results may vary from person to person.
