Third big experience with oils.

Recently I came down with flu-like symptoms. I was in bed for 3 days, and getting up for even 10 minutes at a time was exhausting.

When it first came on, I went into “The bible” aka the Modern Essentials book and chose to use Peppermint, onGuard, Melaleuca, and Oregano to aid my recovery. I ignored the Lavender, as it is used to promote sweating in fevers. As a kid, I used to get fevers (high fevers) a LOT, so the idea of pushing it was in no way appealing

I should have listened! By day 4, the sicky had progressed into exploding head/sinuses. Peppermint had kept the fever at bay but it kept returning. I was using Breathe, Peppermint, Melaleuca, and Oregano in different ways- diffusing, internally, and topically.

At that point I caved at went to the doctor to get a z pack, and she treated me for a sinus infection.

Usually once I get antibiotics and Claritin my symptoms recede within a few hours, but this time they didn’t. I was miserable all day! That night a friend convinced me to try the lavender. I used 2-3 drops on my chest and abdomen, and woke up twice with dripping night sweats before midnight. After the second one, the coughing, sinus congestion, headache, and general ache had disappeared!

I know that both the alternative and modern medicine worked hand-in-hand this time around. I let the sicky get too far ahead of me, but firmly believe they were both aided by the other!

Its interesting to note that because I could not smell anything, I didn’t feel the aromatic emotional effects that can help when one is under the weather.

The Bible mentions this, too. “The human spirit can endure in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?”- Prov 18:14

So the spirit must also be uplifted in sickness- which is yet another reason to use essential oils!
