I wanted to introduce you guys to a company called Young Living Essential Oils. This was my first experience with aromatherapy, other than when I had the occasional massage. I always loved the smell and how relaxed it made me feel. I had no idea how much more Essential Oils can do for you. In case you are new to Essential Oils like I was, let me tell you a little bit about them. First, Essential Oils are aromatic liquids. The practice of using essential oils is commonly referred to as aromatherapy, and is used for physical and psychological well-being. For best results, you should use oils that are considered therapeutic grade, such as Young Living Essential Oils. Secondly, there are several grades of Essential Oils. I never knew there was a difference when it came to using aromatherapy. I figured one was just as good as the other. Not true! Since reading the newsletters I have been receiving from Young Living, I have learned so much. There are actually four different grades of Essential Oils. They range from Grade A to Floral Water. Grade A oils are pure therapeutic quality. I was sent two different Essential Oils to try after explaining what types of problems I have. The first product I was sent was the Deep Relief Essential Oil Roll-On. I was sent this because I have very bad back pain. I actually have already had one surgery on it. I also experience headaches on a regular basis. The second product I was sent was called, Tranquil Essential Oil Roll-On. I was sent this item because I get stressed and have trouble just relaxing. Sounds like I am a piece of work doesn’t it. When I first started using the products, I was the typical person that had no idea what I was doing. I thought it was the smell that made the Essential Oils work. I would apply them to the proper areas and then try to make sure I took in deep breaths so I could get the benefit. I found that the smell was nice, but I was not really feeling any benefits?? I was a little concerned that my review was taking a turn for the worse. I decided to contact Jennifer and ask her some questions to make sure I was doing things correctly. By the way, Jennifer is so wonderful and knowledgeable! It was such a pleasure to work with her and have her teach me about the positive benefits of Essential Oils. After emailing her, this is what I was told: Aromatherapy certainly is more than a nice smell. Deep Relief for instance has oils in it that have pain and inflammation relieving qualities. Tranquil helps calm anxiety, stress, and hyperactivity not just with a soothing scent but addressing the nervous system on a cellular level. I had no idea!! She also went on to describe that I should be using the oils on my lower back as needed, not just on my temples or wrists. It made a lot more sense after talking with her. I began to use the oils the proper way, and let me just say, I sure can feel a difference! As soon as my lower back would start to feel tight, I would roll the Essential Oil generously on it. Within a very short amount of time, I would feel a cooling sensation and relief. It was amazing! For a while I would feel so good and forget all about my lower back pain. It was the same for my headaches. The minute I felt one coming on, I would apply the roll-on to the pressure points. It would usually prevent them from happening all together. These Essential Oils have been some of the best things I have tried as far as gaining relief quickly. The smell, although not the reason the oils work, is still very relaxing and soothing as well. I still have a lot to learn about the different oils and how they can all benefit me, but I am really looking forward to finding out more. I have had these roll-ons for at least a month now and I am not even close to half way through the bottle. I use them daily and very generously! I even carry them in my purse to apply as needed when I am out of the house. I never thought of myself as an aromatherapy girl before this review. I have found that I love these products and will continue to use them long after my review products are gone! I will leave you with all the information on how to contact Jennifer, as she is SO WONDERFUL to work with! If you have any questions about Young Living Essential Oils, feel free to contact her!
