It’s been about two weeks since my last post about my experience so far with my Young Living Essential Oils Premium Starter Kit (PSK). I’ve actually been able to try out almost all of the oils from my kit, and so far I’m pretty pleased. I’m still diffusing in Ian’s room at night, though I’ve changed the formula again (yes, I know- this is the third time) to 4 drops Thieves, 3 drops Purification, 2 drops Lavender (in about 300-400mL of water). This seems to be the most successful combination to date- Ian has slept soundly ALL night since I’ve started this combination, so I’ll take it!
The two oils I’m really loving right now for myself, though, are Lemon and Peppermint!
With this pregnancy, I have been getting some pretty annoying heartburn. Given that I’ve never experienced this in my life (until now), it’s not something I was prepared to handle. When my heartburn gets really bad, I turn to my trusty Pepcid AC, and that normally knocks it right out. But sometimes I don’t really need the Pepcid… my heartburn is more mild. Annoying and uncomfortable, sure, but not full blown acid attacks that feel as if my chest is on fire. Enter my new heartburn relief rub- my new favorite remedy for these scenarios.
Anytime I feel heartburn coming on, I rub a dab of this mixture onto my chest and it keeps my heartburn at bay (I MUCH prefer this to having to choke down a chalky, nasty chew… plus, it smells good!). I decided not to whip the coconut oil first, though you could certainly do that if you wanted the balm to have a creamy consistency. Or you could use fractionated coconut oil (or some other liquid oil) and put the mixture in a roller bottle for even easier application.
Have you tried Lemon and/or Peppermint? What are your favorite uses for these oils?
