i have a friend who only uses essential oils, like do terra. she is a RN and only believes in them( instead of antibotics ectra), she works for hospice( and uses the usual meds ) and uses the oils on her pts. i do believe they help. does anyone else use them? i actually love them and find they work. what do you think about them ? and does your work ever use them? i would love to have them at work( not gonna happen), my friend has a okay to use them for hospice. thank you for your input .
I am a huge believer in using essential oils and always try them before going to meds. I absolutely believe meds have their place but I have found over the past few years that many times the oils do the trick and therefor meds can be avoided. EOs go back to biblical times and most of our drugs used today have a foundation in EOs...the only difference is, they are made in labs while EOs are made by Mother Nature. I have suffered from debilitating migraines since my teens (I'm 40 now), I have been put on everything from 800mg Ibuprofen to Imitrex and Fioricet...they do take the edge off but I'm pretty nonfunctional for the day. It's not feasible since I work on a busy rehab floor, have a son who is Autistic and currently pursuing my Masters Degree. My plate is very full....as soon as I feel the first signs of a migraine, I apply the oils to my occiput area and within 5 minutes I have total relief. Many EOs need trying before believing. There has been more and more research on using EOs for different conditions and I am thankful for them
