Essential Oils have become essential for my family's well being. Our allergies from seasonal to air pollution strike every year at various times during various seasons so I began to study and research WHY essential oils are essential as it was obvious that if we tried them they would become essential to our health and well being. I started with the symptoms and conditions of our bodies and began to read and apply! The first essential oil that I used was peppermint oil on our 8 year old daughter. She was suffering greatly with the transition from Fall to Winter. Her eyes were itchy and those symptoms were accompanied by a stuffy nose. Recess became unbearable at school. While her condition persisted for more than a few days and she would come home from school with swollen, puffy eyes and the aftermath began to cut into her sleep during testing time I decided that was enough. I applied the peppermint oil to her forehead and bridge of her nose with a dab of a cotton tip before bedtime. Her mornings immediately became pleasant with the renewed rest. Shortly after that I added a peppermint candy to her lunch and she was able to participate in recess and her normal outdoor activities.
