We are a family of seven ranging from 11 to 21 , our youngest was diagnosed with autism spectrum with ADHD when he was five so we began a journey of medicines and therapies to help him be able to focus in school and handle the stresses of the social settings. Another son has asthma. He had to take several maintenance medications and we found ourselves at the specialist throughout the winter in need of steroids due to severe illnesses. He also is a gymnastics athlete and deals with sore muscles.
I run an in-home preschool and daycare which exposes our family and the children enrolled to germs.
I learned about Young Living Oils through a friend as she shared her experiences and successes with them. After some research, I decided to purchase the kit. I got my box in the mail and was so excited to open it up and see what the oils were all about! I started utilizing the resources, such as the Facebook support page (Lemon Tree Lounge) and my friends around me. I wanted to learn how to mix the oils and make rollers to help our kids with the specific needs we were wanting the oils for.
I LOVE the way the diffuser smells when you have the essentials oils in it. The diffuser is relaxing + healing at the same time. I also use it in my preschool classroom (with the parents permission) to help prevent the spread of illnesses and for calming. When we start to get sick, the oils are the first thing that we resort to. When my son has an asthma issue, I mix-up something for him instead of getting steroids. We have pain creams, anxiety rollers, mental focus rollers, sleepy time rollers, anti-viral rollers…if we have don’t have something made already – I’m making a cream or a roller.
I have been using the essential oils for two years and it has made a huge difference in our life!
