Hey ya’ll! Are you familiar with essential oils? I must admit that I am a newbie when it comes to them. I have been hearing about the vast benefits of them for YEARS! But, it wasn’t until a few months back that I gave in and bought some.
Even now I have mixed opinions. But, it seems as if everyone loooooves them! So, I’ve been on a quest to find out why. And, I figured I’m not the only one with questions about them, so perhaps it would be beneficial to share my experience as I find uses for them. 🙂
Have you heard of the Purification Oil? I’ve read that it has several uses, but one of them was that it is a good bug repellant when outdoors. So, I made a mental note for next time we took a walk in the woods.
But, in the meantime I was in our backyard when a mean ole fire ant bit stung me. Yes, I learned from my husband that some ants actually sting, instead of bite. I did not think it was a big deal until the next day and I had a rather large unattractive bump on my toe! Yucko! Well, it did not go away… for DAYS! And, it seemed like it just got nastier. (TMI… I know!)
Then I had a thought…… if the Purification oil is good at keeping away bugs, maybe it could help heal the sting.
Ta da!! I was right. I put it on the sting, which at that point looked to still be full of venom. (BLAH!) And, by the next morning there was no more bump and no more pain. There was just a dark mark where it once had been. Pretty crazy, right?
Well, there you go.. pretty simple, yet pretty awesome at the same time.
How about you? Do you use Young Living Oils? If so, please share your favorite ways to use them!!
Till next time.. Be Blessed. And, be a Blessing!!
