Today I'm bringing you something fun from my friend Jill. A while back I was sharing Cate's asthma struggles and Jill told me that she'd been using essential oils to try to combant constant sickies in the fall/winter months.
I've been using the oils (I purchased the starter kit pictured below) for a few months now and I'm really interested in different ways to use them.
When Jill reached out asking if she could do a giveaway on my blog I thought it would be a great opportunity for those of you who are curious to get a chance to try the oils.
How do I use oils in my house? Well, let me be honest about a couple of things. I don't know that much about the uses. I have a great book that Jill sent me, and the Internet is full of information (I've pinned SO many ideas), but I just haven't had time to really research this. I have just learned the tip of a very large iceberg!
I diffuse the allergy trio (what we are giving away below!!) in Cate and Lucy's room every night. It smells SO good. I rub Cedarwood onto the girls when they are having sleep problems. I use RC with Grapeseed Oil on Cate. We diffuse Thieves oil quite often.
It is to be determined if these help. It seems like they do! But I figure they can't hurt. I don't want to have another year full of ER visits and steroids. I'm using the oils in conjunction with a medical regimen from Cate's pediatrician (Flovent,Cingulair,etc). The coughing in my house is way better. The girls love to help me select the oils and apply them. The ritual, in itself, is so relaxing.
And the oils smell heavenly. And they are all natural. I have a friend that has been swearing by these for YEARS. Way before they became popular. I just think the whole concept is so interesting!
For a second chance to win, Jill is also giving a 5 ml bottle of Thieves on her blog if you would like to stop by to enter!
