Just a few weeks ago, I was on vacation. Since joining up with Young Living, I don’t leave home without my bag of oils, and for this particular trip, I was glad I didn’t! Not even half way through the week, my gums started hurting, one spot in the back in particular. I couldn’t figure out what the problem was from, if it was something I ate, if I had cut it somehow, maybe it was receding…. I honestly didn’t know how to diagnose myself. All I knew was it hurt! Enter my Mom. She says, “Why not put some clove oil on it?”
I’m still not sure why I didn’t think of that myself! I’ve always heard to chew on some clove for toothaches. So, I grab my clove oil, put a dab (not even a full drop, just kinda rubbed my finger around the rim) and rubbed it on my gums. It’s a little ‘spicy’, but it definitely helped to relieve the pain. I ended up using it about 2-3/day for 2 days, and would you know that my gums stopped hurting?!
I have truly been amazed by what these Essential Oils can do! I’ve been using them for everything! My OTC medicines have been replaced! I just remind myself that God gave us all these amazing plants to use for our benefit. When our children are sick, or get a ‘boo-boo’, I grab my oils and my Reference book (in case I don’t know what to use… or I Facebook message my friend Kim over at Everyday Oils with Kim! haha!) use the right oil, and praying asking God to heal them, and to use the oils that He has given us to help promote health within their bodies. It is not a cure-all, quick-fix to any and every ailment. I have learned to ‘respect the oils!’ (that’s a post for another day!!) However, I for one feel much better about using EOs then medication. Guess I’m just weird like that!
