This week my Fibromyalgia has been particularly painful. I find it is more painful during the damp weather. So mostly I have been relaxing and snuggling up with books or reading blogs.
A friend of mine recently sent me some essential oil blends to try for pain relief. I tried a rather smelly concoction on my legs as they had been particularly painful. I hadn't been able to sleep due to the pain but I thought id give the oil a try. I had the BEST nights sleep ever! The oils soothed my legs and after a while the smell wasn't that bad after all.
Now my friend is part of a organisation called young living. So having been so impressed with the results I duly signed up to their website. I quickly found out its somewhat of a pyramid scheme. The starter kit is a cool £95.00!
Something I'm not at all interested in. But I liked the effects of the oils. So Ive decided to give the essential oil thing ago. Ive purchased some oils and along with the ones I already own (things like Lavender & Tea Tree) I am building quite a collection up. I have ordered a guide to essential oils from amazon. It can be found here. I am still waiting for it to arrive so I will review it when it does. I have the crystal book in the same range and it is a through and comprehensive guide so I'm hoping it will be the same.
Do you use essential oils to ease pain or for other areas in your life? If so please comment below as I would love to hear tried and tested recipes!
Bye for now
